Last post by camartinez1229 -
Thank you for your reply. I'd tried messing with the registry key before to no avail. However, the bit about "registers itself" made me think there might be a related option in foobar2000's prefs that I hadn't tried. Sure enough, there is a checkbox, "Register supported file formats on startup". I checked that off, and now it seems to be working properly! No more dialog whenever I double click on a file in Windows Explorer. Now I feel a little silly that I hadn't tried that checkbox a long time ago.

I appreciate that parse errors are catched with
(FATAL) Error: JSON Parser ExceptionError parsing release credits.
but would appreciate even more to be able to proceed with the related tags being skipped with a warning.

Cheers, Adriaan.

I get an error message when I seek. The message is displayed when I seek a minute ahead, when it's less than a minute left on the track.
"Unrecoverable playback error: SRC_DATA->data_out or SRC_DATA->data_in is NULL."

I'm using foobar2000 v1.3.17 on Windows 7 x64.

Please ignore this message, it was foo_dsp_nogaps causing the problem.
Ogg Vorbis - General / Re: Car Radio - OGG Vorbis Support?
Last post by Brand -
I'm not sure you'll find a "classic" car radio with Vorbis support. I was buying one recently and I've never seen Vorbis mentioned. But AAC is a pretty good alternative to it and many car stereos can play that. (edit: I thought you meant Opus at first, but the same still applies, to an extent.)

An Android-based radio would play anything you want, but from what I've seen, those are only sold by "no name" Chinese companies of dubious quality...
Android Auto, AFAIK, is just an interface/mirror mode for your phone, and you can only use a limited amount of Google-approved apps with it and so far only through USB.
I have to say this is quite disappointing. I had high hopes for what a full Android OS could enable, but legit manufacturers seem unwilling to give it to customers, for whatever reason. (Maybe it's a matter of safety and they don't want people watching videos while driving...)

You can still connect a phone to a regular car stereo, though, via Bluetooth, USB or AUX. Bluetooth/USB might also support controlling the playback with the radio's buttons and/or the steering wheel controls.

I think the lack of gapless playback is an even bigger problem with car stereos... I'd like to see a list of stereos that support that.

Development - (fb2k) / Re: [request] work on channels seperately in dsp`??

So some weeks later i discovered, that it is and it all sounds way better if cantabile is not used to mix.
So i just go from foobar with my signal chain into voice meeter and then i can use 96khz.

In foobar i first use guitar rig5 with tube compressor and VC2A + EQ and then  rc-20 retro colour vst  for tube sound.
Second: pphs resampler in ultra mode with 768khz to upsample and gain heights and cleaner sound -> 44,1khz resampler.
then mix it all up with channel mixer and matrix mixer -> voice meeter-> asus xonar stx2 sound card (in 192khz/24bit)...

speakers: front 2x jbl lsr305 (mixed in center).
               rear: some onkyo hifi speakers with car amp.
               sub: two simple woofer speakers connected to an car amp (mosfet).
               sub / ambiente: normal active subwoofer ~150hz

ok its little bit much gain on this one...:
