General - (fb2k) / Re: QUERY SYNTAX | Search how many files within an Album
Last post by fohrums -
I tried that but it didn't seem to help much at all as it still listed many Albums with correct tracklisting. Something I did forget to mention is that there is about three different types of filename structures that I went through over the years. I would appreciate it if possible you could instead try and get Albums that has multiple tracks w/ multiple-track#1's  ???

Filename-Structure#1 01 foobar
%tracknumber% %title%

Filename-Structure#2 02-09 Foobar
%discnumber%-%tracknumber% %title%

Filename-Structure#3 01-01_01-04 Foo Bar
%discnumber%-%totaldiscs%_%tracknumber%-%totaltracks% %title%

I will say though that from my knowledge, this seemed to help
Code: [Select]
(tracknumber IS 1) AND ("$left(%filename%,3)" IS 01- AND "$substr(%filename%,4,5)" GREATER 01)

What you want to query can't be queried by the built-in tools. But if the filenames are constructed the way your screenshots showed, you should get some results with this:
(tracknumber IS 1) AND ("$left(%filename%,2)" GREATER 01) OR ("$left(%filename%,3)" IS 01- AND "$substr(%filename%,4,5)" GREATER 01)
Support - (fb2k) / Foobar2000 suddenly loads only 10% of my music
Last post by frankcastle294 -

I've been using Foobar2000 for a few months, during which I've created my own layout, created and used operations, and created a new directory on disk using these operations.

Anyway, I have it monitoring my main music folder (all artist folders are inside). It was going great, until a couple of days ago, I find that its only loading a small set of artists and not even all their albums. I removed the path to the music folder and added it again, it adds the same exact songs it had before, re-scanning does nothing of course. So that would mean there is something special about these tracks, but I cant figure it out for the life of me. I've checked the metadata side by side of working and non working tracks, but with no luck  :'(

In the attached screenshot you'll see two full albums on the left, whereas on the right, foobar is only loading 1 song from each of these folders for some reason.

If you need anything from my side to help me better, please let me know, any help would be much appreciated

General Audio / Re: What lossy format to use for Bluetooth transfer?

To answer the OP directly: your best bet is to encode to AAC and have a phone and speaker that can use it over BT, which as I said above is not an insignificant number nowadays. Which devices are you using? Are you actually having battery troubles that you have pinned specifically to the transcoding? I'm pretty sure that part of the power usage equation is negligible in today's devices.

EDIT: posted without seeing the previous reply, so consider those parameters and if it's a good compromise.

EDIT 2: just noticed the mixer comment and it's right, it'll most likely be decoded to PCM first anyway.

songlength.txt includes every file in the STIL. I do not plan to write a way to modify the STIL documents. Storing the length in the tag only makes sense if I also offer a means to edit the length in the first place.

Try adding INDEX 00 to each track, with an offset of about 2 seconds or one second prior to the INDEX 01? Maybe report that to Mednafen for not supporting tracks without a specified INDEX 00?

Either lodge a feature request for fileops, or don't actually delete your files if they're short. I can still disable the subsong matching, but there will be different behavior once libopenmpt 0.4.0 is released.

AFAIK the only codec used both for music and BT A2DP in any significant way is AAC. Usually speakers and headphone manufacturers will advertise it if they use a non-SBC codec, it's selling point. Most modern Sony speakers and headphones use AAC at the very least, with higher tier ones using also LDAC. I know MP3 also can be used for BT, but no one that I know uses it, especially not any mainstream devices. In contrast, AAC over A2DP is supported in AOSP since Android 8.0, so probably all devices with 8.0 and above will support it. I think Apple also supports AAC on Bluetooth. Now if the devices will or won't reencode the AAC stream is up in the air, who knows.

Don't forget aptX and aptX-LL
aptX isn't used in stored audio though, or streaming services. AAC is the only one that could potentially (realistically) be piped without transcoding over BT.
