I see. No, there are no plans to upload videos to Youtube within this component.

Opus / Re: Point of transparency of Opus 1.2

... Anyway, as from opus@112kbps it becomes more difficult to ABX the samples, please find the results attached.
Thank you for testing.
Intereting as you get at 7/8 even @160 kbps with the applaud sample. Would you call the issue negligible at this bitrate? (I'm on holidays ATM and can't try for myself).

Is there any plans to "Upload/convert/export" ones entire playlist from foobar to and make a "you-tube playlist" feature?
Not sure what you mean.

I was asking, if you had any plans or could implement a feature that does the following.

Takes all the songs in my playlist in foobar, and exports them into a playlist on youtube, so that I can give the link of that playlist to a friend or something.

A playlist like this for example
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SV7J5-HymT4&list=PLSmFauli-7gUee702h1mfxdlqUQVaPTnd

But simply a way to not have to add each some manually one by one, as Im forced to do now.
Yes Im guessing it might need to have a "you-tube login" thing required, since otherwise it would be hard to create a playlist.

His thought process seemed to be that it somehow affected positioning of speakers, choice of amplifiers, etc.  That just seems bizarre.
Yes, bizarre.  A difference  between left & right could be an issue but 1/2 of a millisecond is unlikely to be heard.  It's about the time it takes the sound to move from your left eat to your right ear or being off-center by a few inches.

Or, maybe this audiophool should calculate how long it takes for the sound to get to his ears after coming-out of the speakers.

Yeah...  Computers usually have a few milliseconds of latency (or more).    I've got Beatles CDs with more than 50 years of "latency".  :D :D :D

I'm using the WASAPI output component and setting my output to (event), every time I power down this setting reverts to default.  It happens consistently so I'm guessing this is a bug....  but I'm brand new to Foobar so I wanted to ask.

Thanks

I had set up foo_jesus and autobackup some time ago
The problem is, that foo_jesus is not saving playlists anymore with its default settings, as the location for playlists changed.
am I fucked?
I fear, yes.

This won't help in any way.

The Core Audio encoder seems to provide the best quality at the moment.
Damn, installing the thing on Linux is not that easy. I just had to download a whole bunch of dlls before qaac agreed to work.
You can use the FDK-AAC encoder on Linux. The quality is comparable to that of the mighty Core Audio encoder maintained by Apple.
NeroAACEnc, used to be distributed as Win/Linux binaries, also works. The quality is lower than the Apple/FDK/FhG encoder.

He insisted that some of the higher end amps had delays on the order of 500 µS. 

Plausible, especially if there is any EQ or other filtering.

Not in a circuit with a feedback loop around it, though; he was talking about a bog-standard power amplifier, not an AV system with extra processing modules or even a DSP preprocessor section.  His contention was that the linear amplifier had an actual hundreds-of-µS propagation delay from input to output, and in a basic feedback circuit amp that would not be possible.

Further, he asserted that this needed to be taken into account when setting up bi-amplified speakers using different amplifiers.

Take into account how? It is just a time delay, generally you don't care if it takes a few microseconds longer after you hit start for the sound to come out.

Audio Hardware / Time delay in audio amplifiers

I just saw a known audiofool at another forum trying to espouse the idea that audio amplifiers can have extreme amounts of propagation delay.  He insisted that some of the higher end amps had delays on the order of 500 µS.  Further, he asserted that this needed to be taken into account when setting up bi-amplified speakers using different amplifiers.

This seems completely untenable; wouldn't an amplifier with inverting feedback and a delay of that magnitude turn into a high power oscillator at 2 KHz?

I did some research (both print literature and online) and it seems a much more reasonable value is on the order of a few nanoseconds, which of course would be completely undetectable to the ear and of no consequence to any setup or positioning of the equipment.

Do we have a new winner in the audiofool lottery?
