Thanks for the feedback.

You are correct.

The behaviour is the same as before. I just changed the wording to try and make it clearer when its cycling and when it isn't. For info:

Photo: Cycle. Cycles images in the set Image [Artist] Folder. This is where last.fm artist images are saved, and so it was logical to name the choice as "Cycle Last.fm". You could change this to another folder and disable downloading if you want a different set of images.

Photo: Artist. This loads a single image & that was how it worked before. It loads from "foobar2000 > preferences > display > album art > artist pattern".

Thanks for the report.

Reproduced & fixed for the next version.

Until that time note that the issue only seems to occur after enabling menu > options > show > tooltip. Even then reloading the script will remove the error and display the tooltips.

Thanks for the report.

I couldn't reproduce the issue under normal usage.

However, it looks to me as though the blacklist file has become corrupted and isn't in a valid json format for some reason or another, although I've not seen the script write it incorrectly. I could reproduce the effect by manually editing the blacklist file so it wasn't valid. Can you try deleting fb.ProfilePath\yttm\blacklist.json (or rename if you want to keep it) and see if the issue disappears? If that's what it is, I can add some extra validity checking to stop the script error etc.

Opus / Re: Opus gapless and glitchness encoding
Last post by magicgoose -
it looks like it not completely limited to 18..22 kHz, there's *something* visible from about 6 kHz but it's very quiet.
maybe it could be possible to hear it on some other tracks.

Opus / Re: Opus gapless and glitchness encoding
Last post by Garf -
I had a discussion with jmvalin about this issue last time we met, but there was some uncertainty regarding the tools used to encode or decode, exact versions with or without latest fixes etc, so I had a closer look.

I compiled the latest master (21st Jan 2019) of all opus related tools (libopus, libopusenc, libopusfile):
opusenc opus-tools 0.2-3-gf5f571b (using libopus 1.3-10-gf5790833)
Copyright (C) 2008-2018 Xiph.Org Foundation

Encoded both files with opusenc, decoded with opusdec, and stitched together with sox.

The result is here:
https://sjeng.org/ftp/work/b12_opus.wav

I cannot hear a glitch in this file. The file is a bit weird which makes listening tricky. If I increase the volume too much, my Sennheisers start reverberating, and played with speakers there's too much inter-modulation going on.

That said, a closer look at the file reveals that a) there is indeed a sort of glitch b) it becomes obvious why I can't hear it. See attached image. The glitch is very high up in the frequency range, from 18kHz to about 22kHz.

I'm not clear what causes it. The position in the spectrum doesn't exclude the resampler, I think.

Validated News / Re: New releases are now shorter, is streaming overriding artistic creativity?

Good thing there are still counterexamples.
https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Panopticon/The_Scars_of_Man_on_the_Once_Nameless_Wilderness_I_and_II/703415
Long songs, 5 of them are above 9 minutes, also excellent recording and mastering (not affected by loudness war unlike many).
I think there were a few more albums in 2018 showing these qualities too...

https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Elysian_Blaze/The_Virtue_of_Suffering/711351
this one is just a single song but it's over 18 minutes. also from 2018.

https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/In_the_Woods.../Cease_the_Day/734721
another example from 2018, pretty much all songs are above 6 minutes, and it's good

https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Sargeist/Unbound/739387 worth mentioning too, even if median song length is "just" a bit above 4.5 minutes and the maximum is a bit above 6 minutes.

General - (fb2k) / RAM-Disk as target for converter?
Last post by Anakunda -
Hiyas, the Ramdisk component offers only to be filled from existing files in playlist.
Would it be possible to set Ram-Disk as direct output location for conversion?
If not, is there a different foobar component, or system-wide component that offers slice of RAM as temporary location for result of conversion, thanks.

@kode54, If your message was addressed to me and you meant the link I gave in post 26, it's a direct link to a .pdf file. I have no idea what is on that site apart from that document, it was the first thing google came up with. If you found something that violates any of the rules here, then delete it.
