General - (fb2k) / Re: Where to disable the "remember expanded nodes" option
Last post by Aventine -
Thanks for answering. Well if the option isn't there anymore then I guess it was removed during the 1.4 release and was only available in the beta builds. I didn't notice the change because I switched to facets instead of the traditional Media Library on my main PC, only noticed that it wasn't there because I installed foobar 1.4.1 on my laptop.

sorry if it's been asked already but is anything planned regarding Discogs Tracks Feature?
What I'd love to have for instance is fetching genres / styles individually based on tracks.
Currently tracks aren't available via the API and track pages are pretty useless (they don't have genre/style info for example). However they will likely be added too foo_discogs if Discogs fully develops the feature.

In case you guys care about Discogs Tracks and the future thereof, I made a thread about an angle that I felt is missing from the main Tracks discussion, which is mostly about the basic writing credits at this point and most people comment on from a pop/rock/jazz angle, therefore favour certain problems most found in those very large musical areas to be solved first.
Whereas for me there's a huge fundamental/conceptual black box, as to how Compositions are linked & treated withing this future system that is developing over the next months/years, which is especially notice-able when it comes to re-interpretations [which is the core of all musical evolution & progression of genres imo] (i.e.motifs, homages, remixes, covers, mashups, etc pp ). In case you have thoughts about this and want to chime in, here's a thread:
Tracks Update - compositions & handling of remixes, covers & versions ?

There is a shorter route here guys

➋ rightclick/properties/click on Metadata top left
➌ click Tools down bottom left/Add new field
➍ write in CUESHEET and paste your cuefile in below
➎ Apply and there you are: now File Add file and see all your tags and info displayed and separated tracks
CD Hardware/Software / Re: EAC: Suspicious Positions
Last post by shantiq -
hmmm    this is a problem many find with EAC they really need to tell users how to fix this easy or even to make it go away in the coding and is a common occurrence EVEN ON NEW DISCS puzzling folks all over the planet
Simply check google to see all the articles many of them giving up in effect

The answer is so simple one could cry after having tried 3 rips of same NEW disc

It is to untick Overread into lead-in/out     
F10  to open: Drive options   Offset/Speed  >> Untick


Yep . That simple
Support - (fb2k) / Re: playlists (I mean bug)
Last post by zadane - discards the original track order.. .
Actual behavior of player almost suits me.  I do not need to save any ad hoc created playlist for possible future use. I just want to make a playlist and use it repeatedly instead of several single links (example above - desired content of M3U). 
And I also do not want to require a solution comfortable for just me.  I have only drawn attention to contradiction mentioned above - that FPL playlist does do this correctly, WITH multiple subsongs.  Try it yourself.

BTW, any advice as for associating FPL files with Foobar? (that would be a solution too).

Code: [Select]
$ifgreater(%_new%,30,,%album artist%|%album%)
Hey - mgpai is right, that does indeed work. (Although my playlist sorting is mucked up)

Serj, remember if you only recently installed Playback Statistics within 30 days or so, every album gets the same %added% date initially. The above is testing for 30 days, maybe try it with less.
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_youtube
Last post by richard3840 -
I had been looking for a way to have the Youtube songs included in the media library, because that didn't happen when you added them through the menu. I recently found out that the Youtube component saves the Youtube link and metadata for the indidual songs as  ".FOO_YOUTUBE" files in the "%AppData%\foobar2000\foo_youtube\cache\meta" directory.
To experiment, i tried to copy one of those files into a folder monitored by the media library, and indeed, it seems to recognise them as a song like any other, with the Codec: FOO_YOUTUBE. That's practical, because that makes it possible to tag and use them in autoplaylists and generally, treat them like any other local song.
The only thing there is, which isn't much of an inconvenience anyway, is that Foobar2000 doesn't register the file type as an openable file. Even though it does open them, when you drag them into the window.
Opus / Re: What is the deal with 5.1(back)?
Last post by lithopsian -
To OP: I posed a similar question a little while ago.  See here:,110670.0.html

It seems the terms 'back' and 'side' may be arbitrary terms for the same placement position.

Exactly.  I don't get the problem.  Whether a codec refers to a channel as side or rear in a 5.1 setup, they go to the same speaker.

So is this just a semantics complaint, or is there an actual problem?  I understand that ffmpeg has some issues encoding Opus 5.1, but that's ffmpeg's problem.  Are there are other problems, perhaps upmixing to 7.1 setups?
