3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_enhanced_playcount - Record all song plays and scrobbles
Last post by jyra -
That's weird. I haven't seen any issues like this. Can you post the entire URL of the call that is being made to

My bad, the problem is definitely on my end. I use foobar2000 under Wine and can't get any scrobbles now. I used a Windows VM before that which worked fine.

Do you happen to have an idea what could be needed to make it work? I have already tried installing .NET framework 2.0/3.0 but that didn't help.
General Audio / Re: How much can we trust streaming services for their high quality tiers
Last post by ajp9 -
It says something that the only streaming service I've used for quality is YouTube, where I can most often find a good encode because the service allows multiple instances of a song, and it uses Opus. Which makes it kind of dumb that Google Play may offer worse encodes than its own YouTube counterpart.

For top quality, it's CD or offline files at 288kbps+ for me.
General - (fb2k) / how to update default *.fpl playlists for a different drive location
Last post by timcupery -
After a mainboard death I am using a different computer with a different drive setup, and thus my music library has moved. I am trying to edit the *.fpl files stored in \AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\playlists-v1.4\ so they correctly reflect the new location of the audio files.

I can do a find-and-replace in Notepad, changing D:\Music\ to C:\Users\<username>\Music\ and saving the *.fpl files with the correct new locations. However, foobar2000 will not load the updated playlist files, saying they are corrupted. (I think this is simple to understand but attached a screenshot in case the type of error is relevant.)

I've searched online and the only answer to this particular question is to use notepad, which may have worked for older versions of foobar2000 but doesn't work currently (1.4 and more recent use playlists-v1.4.

For now, I set my external hard drive as D:\ so the playlists will work playing files off my external drive. I can save each playlist as a *.m3u file and the run find-and-replace in Notepad, But I assume there is an easier way to do this.
Other Lossy Codecs / Re: EA ADPCM

And crashing is another reason why encoders wouldn't be added to audio conversion libraries. Making the encoders is the easy part. Getting the new files to work is the hard part. I could write the codecs myself, but the results will probably still crash because I don't know the file structure.

Check available space on your harddrive and also these settings from windows:
I didn't even know there was a "Storage sense" setting in Windows 10. Thank you for letting me know about it. I turned it off, and also turned off a seemingly related setting I found right under the Storage sense setting, labeled "Delete temporary files that my apps aren't using".
Support - (fb2k) / Android Playback when Screen Turns Off (Bluetooth/headphone jack)
Last post by Zirbmonkey -
This is an ongoing issue with the android app, specifically on my Samsung Galaxy S10 via bluetooth or headphone jack. When hoping in my car, my phone will connect and begin playing from the foobar app... only while the screen is unlocked.

After the screen times out, foobar pauses and stops playing.
When picking up the phone again, the screen tuns back on (still locked) and begins playing again.
Unlocking to the main app, pressing the main "play" button to pause and restart the song doesn't resolve the issue.
The only way to get the app to play while the screen is locked and off is to pause and then play from the pull down menu or lock screen menu.

Issue happens plugged into my headphone jack directly to my IEMs, or connected to any Bluetooth device. Tried it with 2 different cars (Subaru and Nissan) and bluetooth speakers (Fluance).

edit - To be clear, this doesn't happen with other apps: google music, spotify, pandora
General - (fb2k) / Re: Searching for duplicate albums

I doubt you'll find any reliable automated tool for this.

You can however install Facets or Columns UI (Filter panels). And use a display pattern similar to this:
Code: [Select]
%album% -- $directory(%path%)

Assuming you stored every album/variation in their own directory, the different versions will show up twice in the generated list, allowing you to investigate the potentially problematic albums.
