3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_wave_seekbar
Last post by EpicForever -
Our forum friend Rollin has found working solution for all these files that have bugs when decoded through foo_input_ffmpeg:,114855.msg948011.html#msg948011
you can add -loglevel 0 to Additional arguments. This should fix disappearing of waveform for files from your archive when decoding with foo_input_ffmpeg.
Rollin - once again thank you :)

WOW. After adding that -loglevel 0 switch to 3GP config I also have waveform seekbar available for those "faulty" .3gp files from SE E15i mobile phone... So that is really a huge thing!
Yes, I came across this article in the past, but it is at least partially not true / not precise, because funnily I have configured my O2016 installation using that Deployment Toolkit and Groove was excluded in the .xml file. But OneDrive was not, so maybe that's ther reason why it sits on my HDD, as this is connected with OneDrive. No kidding. I can even search for an .xml file between installers.
On the other hand - could anyone invent more bothersome way of configuring what apps from the larger packet do you need or not? Only Microsoft...
Yes, I used shift-esc instead. Just wanted to be sure that I didn't miss smth obvious.
Rollin - it is not the first time you helped me :) . That switch works great with all the files that I had problems with. And you know what? After adding that switch even Westbam shows its length as 3:17. Still there is something wrong - file is 3:47 long, anyway that is some progress ;)
 -loglevel 0 is now a must in my foo_input_ffmpeg config :)

@elia_is_me : this functionality is now present in latest release:
And in console there is clear message that file was skipped:
foo_scrobble: Skipping track due to missing artist or title
General - (fb2k) / Re: Feature Request - Audio Captions

To keep it clean: until now foobar was never aiming at playing video files at all. At best you can expect playing audio stream from them through foobar, using foo_input_exe, foo_input_ffmpeg or foo_input_ds (this last one requires 100% working DirectShow on your PC). There are no known clues that foobar will play anything else than simply sound at any time in the future. Plugins may help with adding some additional functionalities. You may try to search for thread about one of lyrics plugins, look if plugin developer is active in the thread and ask him for adding such possibility.
However - keep in mind that freely elective 3rd party plugins are possible only in Windows. On Android there is no possibility to add external libraries to installed app (Andoid security). Such library had to be bundled to foobar's .apk file downloadable from Play Store.
Yes. This was clearly stated in foobar's crash dump. Crashing was not happening before I started using Office 2016 64bit. It started shortly after installation (with first Converter component usage) and went away right after I deleted / renamed this dll. I was even conducting tests - one run with grooveex.dll renamed (to .dllxxx) - no crash, next with "stock" groovex.dll - immediate crash when Converter was asking for file destination. So I kept it renamed. But when new version of dll was coming back after some Office update, crashing when Converter was asking for destination folder was coming back. And when I renamed dll again - again it was disappearing. Do you still think it was related to sound card drivers? I don't think so...
Use Shift-ESC then. Unfortunately there are some limitations in every software, mostly coming from operating system API. No matter for what reason (foobar's built-in or due to Win32API) you checked yourself, that ESC can not be used as a keyboard shortcut, because it does other things in the app. If you see it is impossible - use different solution then (Shift-ESC, Control-ESC, whatever is possible).
There is also option in your Operating System, to disable power saving for hard disks...
