General - (fb2k) / Media Library sorting question
Last post by Theboombringer1 -
Hi, I wanna sort my media library folder by Album Artist>Albums sorted by Date>Tracklist and I can do it pretty easily like this:

%<album artist>%|['['%date%']' ]%album%|[[%discnumber%.]%tracknumber%. ]%title%

However, I don't like how the second layer shows the year of the album on the library tree itself like this:
[2004] Album Here

What I wanna somehow achieve is to hide away the date section from the library view, yet still make it invisibly sort my albums by date, how would I do that? Thanks for the help.

You have to divorce from the notion that software always has to be updated. As long as it is around, performing, stable, compatible, and simple is all we should care about. It is good enough.

I remember reading on the codec's official website that the goal was to keep improving, but several years have passed and there have been no improvements in terms of quality. Version 1.3.1 had no significant changes in that, what future holds for Opus?

Hello Foobar Dev Team,
months ago, and even years ago, I was asking to have direct VST (2 and 3 now) support integrated into Foobar.

Now I believe this "option" to be obsolete and a new smarter approach would look better.
As already implemented in products like VB-Audio Voicemeeter, Banana and Potato, a set of virtual ASIO / AUDIO IN and OUT would provide an even more flexible and future proof solution.

As well described here
This kind of Virtual Audio I/O allows to loop in any decent DAW, offering so an unlimited audio elaboration capacity.

And, concluding, I believe also that for you, Foobar Dev Team, this would be something very simple, you just have to implement a set of virtual interfaces, not a VST hosting platform with all its audio routing engine and so on.

What do you think about?

All the best for the coming soon Foobar V2 and kind regards,

Hello, I am sorry but I do not understand how to use this component (how to have it working).
Is there a step-by-step instruction document for the absolute beginners?
I am not a SQL expert, nor a programmer... just a regular music listener.
Thanks and regards, Andrea
foobar2000 mobile / I love the app, but adding music to a playlist is for scientists....

I love the foobar app for android, but when i want to add music to an existing playlist, foobar is useless. :/ How come it is not as easy as to just have a "Add song"-button, you browse/search for a song on your phone and then add it to the list?! Why it must be so advanced..? I still do not know how to add a single track to my playlist without adding an entire folder....

Any chance that you can simplify that like described? SOOO much easier for us non-technical noobs. Otherwise, it's an awesome app, for sure!
