Is there any way to open multiple URLs with something like this below or do I have to go the batch file route? You can do two commands in a batch file so I thought it may be possible to do this with foo_run. See the answer on SO here for running two commands.

PS: I've removed the escaping for clarity in the example below.

Sorry, I guess that's what I was trying to get at.  Just trying to add things to a playlist in a lazy way.  Basically double clicking would add to the "Current playlist" i.e. the custom one I just created instead of having to right click and add or drag like you said.

Last post by redrose -
I think I must have used --import-id3 in the past, when compressing from .dsf to WavPack, and something went wrong with translating the tags to APEv2 there, but I cannot reproduce it anymore in Wavpack 5.4.0. If I compress a .dsf file with an ID3 tag now, using --import-id3, the APEv2 tag keys are used correctly by the WavPack compressor. Perhaps it was a bug that has been fixed long ago, and I only found out after recently having imported the files into Deadbeef.

Hi @flu1d,

why would you want to have this functionality when the "Library View" playlist was designed only for the Library that has temporary content and will always change when you start playing from the Library?
You can just create your own playlists and it won't reset its content when you start playing from the Library, it will just automatically switch to the "Library View" playlist.

To create your own playlists, there are 3 ways to do it:
1. Right click in the playlist > Create new playlist or just Ctrl + N.
2. In the playlist header ( hover with your mouse for the text button link ) > Create new playlist. You can also see the current active playlist name
3. Top menu Playlists > Create new playlist

In the playlist manager ( also found in the same way like mentioned above or Ctrl + M ), you can switch to your created playlists, rename them, rearrange order and also create new ones.

If you created your own playlist, you can drag and drop music to it or from the Library ( be sure your active playlist is your created playlist, not the "Library View", you can check the name in the playlist header ) right click >Add to current playlist.

AndreaT are you perchance using Intel HD 630 video drivers?  There was a long run of a bug in those that resulted in RAM usage by the dwm.exe process (Desktop Window Manager) steadily increasing to monumental proportions.  This has finally been fixed with the newest release of the Intel drivers (  It certainly affected my system (Windows 10 21H2 x64).
General Audio / Re: Getting and running fdkaac and opusenc encoders for dbpoweramp and foobar.
Last post by rupeshforu3 -
dBpoweramp R17 uses Opus 1.3.1 and if you look here:

1.3.1 is the latest.

Our FDK is 2.0.2 which if you look here, 2.0.2 is the latest:

Opusenc is ok but I want latest fdkaac. Git repository consists of source code and I want executable file. I am asking which is the best way to compile fdkaac ie using gcc or visual studio or msys2 etc.,.

Already I have replied to spoon in dbpoweramp forum. I am doing again as others may see.
General Audio / Re: Future of Audio Codecs and Acoustic Transparency Threshold
Last post by DVDdoug -
It's hard to predict the future but MP3 was patented in 1989 so there has been more than 30 of development/advancement in perceptual compression.   And I don't think there have been any sound-quality related tweaks to LAME in more than 10 years, so MP3 has probably been pushed as far as it can go.     Maybe other formats can be improved a little, but probably not a lot.

Plus, increases in bandwidth and file storage space reduce the need for lossy compression everyday!   (Lossless compression also seems mature.)

Update: I have heard the xHE-AAC file, created after an update and objectively also in this case it feels worse than the previous version, I will report it to the developer.

The xHE-AAC file has ReplayGain information embedded, resulting different output in Foobar. I can clearly hear the difference if I delete the ReplayGain tags.

I've attached the same file without ReplayGain tags.
