I have a problem, and its 3 "programs" and something is causing a "problem", so not 100% if its related to this plugin or any of the other programs, or even windows 10 itself.

But Ill try and explain as short as possible, even if its going to be long.

So Streaming with "OBS Studio" using "FooBar" to stream the music, and capturing the "FooBar YouTube plugin" with "OBS"

So I capture "FooBar" window. (Foobar Youtube video plugin)
For some reason, OBS finds the correct window, and without any "cropping" or "edit transform" it does not capture the entire windows.
It did capture entire window and everything worked one 1hour earlier. So something "happened"...

When I stream I set my desktop resolution to 1920x1080 with 100% scale .
But when I do not stream I set my resolution to with 125% scale (windows 10) ( )

What I think "happened" ?
So I streamed, have all programs up and running, close down some programs, change resolution to 3440x1440 and scale to 125% settings
Then I notice I dint close all programs and close them without thinking about it.
Then I remember I needed to make a small change to the layout of my stream in OBS, change back to 1920x1080 with 100% scale.
open up all programs, but now I notice that several things are not right size and things are not captured correctly by OBS.
do some editing fixes most things, but the biggest issue is can not capture the entire video/youtube window any longer.
And if I would guess it seems like around 25% of the windows is missing, without any cropping. So I guess its the scale thing is screwing things up.

Here is a screenshot.
To explain it, OBS Studion in the background, with my layout.
Bottom right corner is the "Original source" (FooBar YouTube) I want to capture. its a separate window above OBS in this picture.
Top left is the "Windows Capture", but as you can clearly see, what is captures its a lot less, looks to be around 25% missing.

So some program or windows itself remembered the size of the window when it was closed, dint take "scale" into concideration, and when I opened the program it dint recheck the "scale" I assume, and therefor its somehow "screwed"

So once again, not sure if its this plugin that has potential issues with windows scale. Or OBS, or Windows, or FooBar...

Any ideas who is the villan in this case ?

I tried just now and it does seem to "hang" on the Minilyrics source and never find anything, before proceeding to the next.  And yes, a couple of days ago this did not happen.  I only search for non-synced lyrics, but even so Minilyrics would often return results.  Changes at the website?

Guys, is anyone else having problems with "Multi DB: Minilyrics"?

It was working fine a couple of days ago (tons of results), but now it takes forever and I don't get a single result from that source. I also use: Musixmatch, QQ, AZ and Songlyrics and they seem to be working fine (but much less results than what Minilyrics used to return).

I'm using: foo_multisource 0.42 (SSE2), foo_uie_lyrics3 0.5 and Foobar v1.6.5.

EDIT: I just installed foo_uie_lyrics3_minilyrics 0.9.2 to see if it helped, but the same thing happened: no results from Minil. and the search took longer than usual.
Support - (fb2k) / Foobar changing it size of its window.

Seems there is some bug, with FooBar, and the size of the program changes. Because I changed windows resolution and "scale".

I use FooBar to stream, and I do capture windows, so I want my FooBar to stay at the same size always.
I streamed and after my stream, changed resolution & scale, and closed Foobar, (not sure in what order).
But next time I opened up FooBar the size of the window was twice as large.
And there is no way to get it back to the exact same size, so I have to redo OBS captures, and change filter settings.
Long story short... Hope someone looks into this, so even if I fix my layout, would be nice if the fooBar window does not change it size, just because windows 10 resolution and scale changed temporarily. (it did not change back when I turned down the scale)

the smallest Scale one can have is 100%.
So lets say I had foobar active, had scale at 100%,
changed scale to 125% then close foobar.
And next time I opened up foobar when my setting is at 100%, it only remember the "size" of when I closed the program.
And that would be a Foobar at 25% extra size.

I stream in 1920x1080 so I have my main monitor on that size when I stream.
And offstream I change my desktop to 3440x1440 and 125% Scale ( )

The FDK AAC encoder uses some aggressive denoising, even at quality 5, which means it's technically never transparent, depending on the source.
