Awesome!  Can I confirm that external cue sheet support has been changed as well (before I do something stupid to my collection!)?  All the Index 00's are now retained and the additional (previously unsupported) fields are now supported?  I am in the process of embedding those cuesheets but was leaving 0.8.3 around in the meantime.

Thanks!!

Does "Rebuild mp3 stream" include "Fix vbr mp3 header"? (if being applied on a vbr mp3)

Another question. I don't know if "apply replaygain to mp3 data" is new: This does touch the file. Does it do mp3gain? Why don't you store undo information then?

If i open the propertities window for a single file, the text in the field window is auto-wrapping, but for multiple files not. Is this intentional ?

Geez, that's why you don't use a beta "productively" on your actual music files right away... but rather on copies to see if any of your collected meta data gets lost or transformed in any way.

Thanks for properties box improvements, selectable read-only field makes tag edit easier. The copy button works like a charm too. Also it seems startup is a lot faster now for the first run and about 10% faster for any restart.

EDIT:There's percent statistic in the properties dialog if you select multiple files.

I too lost my LYRICS tags when changing to the "Compatibility" mode (test database though  ).  I am using dug's foo_lyricdb.  The component can find the lyrics for my files, but it will not save it to a tag.  It will work with V2.4 tags though.  Anyone else have this issue?  Would this be a bug in fb2k 0.9.4 beta 1 or with dug's component?

play count unofficial still doesn't work which is a shame. Although I'm tempted to move for the 2.3 support... shame the official playcount doesn't have the options I need yet.

Peter said something here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=46855&view=findpost&p=415144) about not retaining unsupported fields in id3v2.3 mode. Wonder if that's the reason.

EDIT: Lorraine which option you need, if it's write to tag option then it's already in the official playcount. IIRC someone has already made an unofficial playcount version that work with 0.9.3 (so I guess it also works with 0.9.4) can't dig it with out search though.

There's no previous/next button on purpose (would be bad design afaik). If you want to edit multiple entries just select them and double click or "right click --> edit --> Individual Values" on the fieldname in the properties dialog. You'll be able to enter all the tags one by one for each selected item. That's the way it's supposed to be done.

And there were hundreds beta version of foobar2000 released in the past. This new is simply going against the explicit rules explained by Tigre:

Well, EAC V0.95 prebeta 5 is explicitly mentioned in that thread too.

Beta 1 trumps prebeta 5 any day in my book. You might argue that EAC releases are much less frequent than fb2k, but fb2k releases have slowed down too recently.

BTW, the percentage thing in multiple files info is nice, but wouldn't it be rather handy to have simply the number of files available instead of percent?

OK, i was able to find some MP3s where the 'Tool' field is available. But on the most files encoded by myself with fb2k & LAME 3.97b there's no 'Tool'...

Strange. I can view the information with files produced by the latest 3.97b3, via foobar2000 or not. Examples:

No Tool here, while it was encoded with LAME 3.97b2 for sure. But i was able to dig up some more files where it is shown correctly, so maybe these mp3s are somehow 'different'...
And your propertities window is different probably because i'm using Win2K, i just had no XP around the check it.

Did you try the solution from here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=48045&hl=)?

If that doesn't work, perhaps some of your files were encoded differently, e.g. by the LAME DLL instead of the command-line encoder, etc. ?

Having no issues so far with the new beta, got a request though.
Someone already requested this in the previous beta period: Having a ComboBox for fields with multiple values in the Properties dialog. That would make the unification of tags much easier.

I keep receiving sharing violation errors when trying to add or remove tags from songs that are currntly playing. It appears to have started with the 0.9.4b1. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Also, the $info(extrainfo) tag is now gone so to figure out if an MP3 is CBR or VBR it looks like we'll have to start parsing $info(codec_profile).  No big deal but it's a significant change that breaks many trackinfo scripts.

I know how editing works. This is rather for viewing purposes. To have a quick file information overview over multiple, single files. I mean one by one.
I agree with this here 100% for the same reason. Next/previous buttons are very nice for viewing purposes, especially for looking at the Properties/Properties section. The way metadata editing for multiple selected files is done at the moment is perfect, but it has nothing to do with this request IMHO, since editing and viewing are not related in this case.

A drop-down selection box in case multiple files were selected in order to only see the info for a single track might be nice too: "All, <file #1>, <file #2>,..." but on the other hand might be impossible to handle when an entire database of serveral thousand tracks was selected. So I think simply reselecting the individual tracks in the playlist is best kept the way it is in this case. Only one more thing added to the "Prev/next button" wish: in case multiple tracks were selected pressing the Next/Prev buttons should of course start reselecting the first or last track of a selection and redisplaying its info in the Prop window... that's the default behaviour of a lot of programs with similar buttons.

EDIT: Oh I got another idea. Make the Properties windows update "live" as the user selects files in the playlist. Something similar to the columns UI. At the moment (0.9.3 final) it is possible to "do stuff" outside the properties window when it is open, also reselecting tracks in the playlist, but this has no effect on the info being displayed in the Properties window.

Btw, I guess this should better be split off to a thread in the suggestions subforum because this doesn't discuss this particular beta release directly and was merely a last-minute-request for the final version of 0.9.4 I suppose...

ask musicmusic to fix that. IIRC, columns_ui crashes foobar2000. foobar2000's default plugins and default application do not. but i don't have windows so i can't confirm this.

hi there

the changelog looks quite promising, I don't understand everything though.

I noticed that AMIPwrapper doesn't work here for some reason. a popup says "Unable to load plugin". In the Preferences Dialog, there is an entry called AmipWrapper, but foobar crashes when you click on it.

there is also a problem with columns_ui, or maybe I did something wrong. enabling the columns UI interface makes foobar to one big grey window with nothing in it.. but it seems to work for most of the people here, so maybe it's just me

also, I am a bit confused because of some entries in here. what exactly is new/better with the ID Tags? better compatibility with other players? I understood it like a "downgrade" from V.2.4 to V.2.3, correct me if I'm wrong..
this may be a silly question, but how exactly does this effect an average user who just wants to play songs, Rip CDs, tag and rate his files with foobar?

thank you!

I don't think it's a case of 'better'. As the new preference setting states: "non-specification-compliant, slow, activates workarounds for common bugs in other software".

The most common example of why this might be useful is for iTunes, which doesn't cope well with v2.4 tags, but displays v2.3 no problems. So converting and tagging mp3's in foobar with the compatibility mode means that those mp3 tags will display in iTunes.

Yes, but it is not what I like. The Columns don't line up as neat.

since when does the default interface use columns?

Thx for the release~!
Btw just found out a bug, fb2k 0.9.4 b1 couldnt exit properly,
i have to open Task manager and end task manually...


Please file proper bug reports, each of them in a new thread. Otherwise it's impossible for the dev's to keep track of things. (Not to mention the fact that this thread will be closed if you don't  )


Ok the bug has comfirmed, cause by foo_dsp_headphones9.dll,
fb2k 0.9.4b1 finally can exit properly after remove this dsp plugin.

I will file a bug report to the plugin author soon

I have a shared music collection, I maintain all the tags in foobar but some people use Media Player to play songs, and every time they do it cocks up the tags (truncates title, album etc., fiddles with genre, removes all my special tags like disc etc.). Will using ID3v2.3 fix this? If so, I'm definately downloading 0.9.4 beta 1, it'll save me a lot of headaches!

It should solve your WMP and truncate title, album, etc problem but about custom tag maybe you will lost them. ID3v2.3 support in 0.9.4b1 only support official field that's listed here (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:ID3_Tag_Mapping).

$tab? that's a function. it doesn't really implement columns
Title: foobar2000 0.9.4 beta
Post by: Yotsuya on 2006-09-10 06:13:03
$tab() will allow you to simulate columns of text in the default UI if you use it to separate text like this

TEXT1$tab()TEXT2$tab()TEXT3

They are not real columns, there will be no borders for you to resize or anything like that. However, it's rather useful if you want your playlist to appear in columns such as:

%list_index%.$tab()%album artist% - %title%$tab()%length%

btw musicmusic has posted a new beta in the columnsui thread that corrects the incompatibility issues with vista.

I think there was a refresh issue with the properties window which now has been fixed.

Wishlist: When we select multiple files, the properties window provides us with various tech info for multiple files...

e.g.

Code: [Select]
BS; Lancer [20051118] (based on aoTuV b4a [20051105]) (17.5%); LAME3.98a (7.7%); Xiph.Org libVorbis I 20040629 (1.8%)


At the moment we can see the full info only via a hint. I suggest using the same mechanism as when double clicking a multi value tag (opening a separate window)...

Did you happen to upgrade album art panel around the same time?  The new version (0.2.4) processes all wildcard matches, which would cause a pause like you describe.

Dont downgrade. I had the same problem. Look at this thread (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=39924&st=675) I had the same issue and the answer was given to me quickly.

The new version of albumart processes all the wildcards so all you have to so is be more specific and add a couple more specific sources so it doesnt get confused
Title: foobar2000 0.9.4 beta
Post by: Jubei on 2006-09-13 20:39:33
OK. upgraded back to 0.2.4 album art panel and tweaked the source code as suggested. Seems to be working fine and at the moment even the erratic no cover artwork seems to be displaying ok. Will keep my fingers crossed - had some problems with the upgrading and downgrading. An error message said a dll file caused foobar to close itself. But after removing album art panel dll and then adding it again, everything seems to be fine.

Anyway, thanks again musosticky.

Is "Fix vbr mp3 header" a subset of "Rebuild mp3 stream"?

How would it be? Whereas the first just fixes the headers the second rewrites the whole file (stripping any bad stuff). Hover the mouse over the commands and look in the status bar for more details.
Title: foobar2000 0.9.4 beta
Post by: Squeller on 2006-09-13 21:06:41
man subset

A = Fix vbr mp3 header
B = Rebuild mp3 stream

Does "rebuild mp3 stream" include "fix mp3 vbr header"?

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/d/d6/Venn_A_subset_B.png/150px-Venn_A_subset_B.png)

The question is, if I have e.g. time calculation problems in an mp3 and perform the rebuild mp3 stream function, I will probably not have to "fix the vbr header"?

Long time user, first time caller.

I know at least a dozen people are taken aback by the 'Updating Files -> Processing' popup that foobar 0.9 has when dealing with ID3 tags. This is particularly frustrating when using the official playcount plugin, with the 'synchronize with id tags' option enabled, as every song pops up this dialogue.

Is it possible to include an option to 'disable' this popup. Particularly the fact it's popping up even if foobar is minimized to the system tray.

This minor issue, for some, is a major issue stopping people from moving from 0.8 -> 0.9

Just thought I'd mention it.

How come I don't see the pop-up everyone is complaining about? I'm using 0.9.4 Beta 2 and the official Playback Statistics plugin. The pop-up did occur when I first upgraded to 0.9.x but since 0.9.3 final version, it has not appeared.

Have you got it set to synchronise the tags with the database? Or whatever the setting was...I changed to the unofficial version so I could set the point at which the tags were written i.e not halfway through the bloody song
Title: foobar2000 0.9.4 beta
Post by: Jubei on 2006-09-14 11:16:29
Yes, set to sync automatically. And yes, cannot control when it decides to write the tags. I used the unofficial version for a while and have some issues with it on 0.9.3 - though I can't remember what it was.

Switching over to using this version of Playback Statistics has its problems like a different tag name and the coded timestamp. But that's a issue discussed on another thread (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=46582&st=0)

Yeah the issues were the incompatibility with v0.9.3 onwards but that was fixed shortly. You should venture back in my opinion its worth it just to determine when the tags are applied and you can use the masstagger to change the field names for playcounting.

Well, actually i have set Foobar to read both play_counter and play_count. Anyway, once the track is played, the Playback Statistics re-writes the tag into the new format while preserving the actual count - so i figure at some point when all the tracks have been played under the new plugin, all the tags will be updated.

Yes, probably no.  Well, if mp3 stream rewriting and tag writing both are deterministic, we could do exact comparison of files to get the answer.

The problem is in MS WMA runtime and not on our side, there's very little we can do about it. You can try updating Windows Media Player etc to the latest version.

The LAME profile recognition isn't quite right. For LAME versions less than 3.94, it says Vx, when it should say apx (where x is the level).

And it doesn't recognize LAME 3.89 -remix MP3s at all.

Also, there's $codec() for %codec% but no $codec_profile() for %codec_profile%. Not a big deal really, but that seems a bit inconsistent.

Why do you need this? Its just a name. E.g. v0=-preset extreme in older lames. Just a command line preset name.

Hi!

Could you tell me which encoding is used with the id3v2.3 compatibility mode in foobar 0.9.4 beta? Is it ISO-8859-1 or UTF-16?
(My mp3 player can only read ISO-8859-1).

If it's only UTF-16 could you add an advanced option to switch between ISO-8859-1 and UTF-16?

Thanks in advance.

The older versions of LAME don't have -V, and they're not equivalent in those versions. For instance, for 3.90.3 -ape, foobar2000 says it's -V2, while for 3.96.1 -ape, it says it's -V0.

Like I said, I believe -V was introduced in 3.94 (or maybe 3.95?), so before that, you should be using --alt-preset. It's not difficult at all to detect the profiles. You can still check the preset in the header, and if that doesn't work, you can look at the VBR method, ATH and low pass values.

Dnuos (http://brodierao.com/projects/dnuos/) and Oidua (http://oidua.suxbad.com) can do this just fine. It's not at all complicated.

Great news!  With foobar2000 v0.9.4B3 all tags now come over during conversion to WMA.

Assuming you have Windows Media Encoder components installed, you can set up a foobar converter as follows:

Encoder: Custom
Encoder: c:\windows\system32\cscript.exe
Extension: wma
Parameters: c:\progra~1\wi15da~1\encoder\wmcmd.vbs -input %s -output %d -profile a128
Format is: Lossy
Highest BPS mode supported: 24
Encoder name: WMA
Bitrate (kbps): 128
Settings: -profile a128


This will produce WMA files -- fully tagged as were the source files -- at 128 bitrate.  Other encoding settings are explained in the help file that installs with WME components.

WME is here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=5691ba02-e496-465a-bba9-b2f1182cdf24&displaylang=en)

Note that your "short file name" directory for WME may be something different than my "wi15da~1".

Enjoy!

nice. cuesheet editing via the porperties box is working almost properly now. i rememeber that older 0.9x versions created strange fiels when you looked at the cuesheet in a text editor. (when opening 0.9x edited files with 0.8.3 it looked like that: http://songbird.dyndns.info/wvpack.png (http://songbird.dyndns.info/wvpack.png) )


anyway i have some questions:
is it intended that foobar changes the position of some fields in the cuesheet and is it intended that the editing of a field in an embedded cue causes the removal of the "PERFORMER" field?

I know that if given a choice an educated person will try to avoid WMA, but I still think it's good that fb2k is getting decent support for the format anyways. I'm actually trying out dbPowerAmp right now primarily because I need to experiment with WMA files, and would have prefered to us fb2k for this task instead seeing as I use it for everything music related these days. See, I bought an Xbox 360 several weeks ago and am having a lot of issues with getting music to play between the two applications that are available for streaming media to the Xbox. These are Windows Media Connect, which is made by Microsoft, and TVersity which is a third party app. I like the latter more since I can play internet radio. However, TVersity is balking at the way I have my music files organized, where as WMC won't play internet radio but has no issues with my file organization. Very frustrating. Hence why I want my collection in WMA format, to hopefully prove a point on another forum.

Anyways, to the point of why I actually wanted to make a post in this thread. I noticed that dbPowerAmp copies all tags to the WMA files it makes when I transcode from my APE files. This includes ReplayGain. Version 0.9.3.1 of foobar 2000 doesn't see the RG tags at all. I'm only guessing 0.9.4 Beta is the same. Not sure how much of an issue this really is, but I suppose it could be for some users, and hence why I thought I should bring it up.

Edit: Also, properties say WMA 9 was used, when in fact it was WMA 9.1 Pro (which I can see when I hover over the files thanks to dbPowerAmp). Not trying to be a pest or anything, just help things along. Maybe I better give 0.9.4 beta a try myself, because if these issues have been fixed then I'm just making a fool of myself hehe.

wma. It's not only about hatred, it's like "who cares?"

Ok, I get it, but let me tell you why I care:

- My music library is in Ogg, but my kids' DAPs don't support it.  For them, WMA is a fine solution that puts as many tunes as possible in their flash at a quality they are perfectly happy with

- I like to use foobar for as much as I can and it bothered me that I had to launch some other application just to convert files for my kids

- WMA tag editing and conversion support is something that was in foobar v8.3 and has been missing from v9.x up until now; some people on this board were reluctant to make the transition due to this

- One of the wonderful foobar developers spent time putting this functionality into the new release and I wanted to let him know that the work is appreciated

- WMA Lossless and WMA Pro, while not particularly widely supported, are both contemporary and capable codecs

- I'm not going to bow to the pressure sometimes felt in this group to not talk about WMA simply because it is a Microsoft product; I'm not a MS fanboy, neither do I dismiss them out-of-hand

- If we don't talk about WMA, how will it ever get better?

Thanks.

Great post Apesbrain! By the way, is it possible to get foobar2000 0.9.4 beta 3 to convert to WMA 9.1 Pro? I got your settings working fine just now, but I get an error when I try some of the other settings listed in the help file for WME. All my succesful conversions say WMA v2 in foobar too. Thanks!

Edit: I found the problem. An 'error flushing file' message is given when –a_setting Q98_48_2_24 is added to the command line, which is as follows (straight from the help file pretty much):

c:\progra~1\window~4\encoder\wmcmd.vbs -input %s -output %d -a_codec WMA9PRO -a_mode 2 –a_setting Q98_48_2_24

Take out the -a_setting and I do indeed get a WMA 9.1 Pro file. VBR Quality 75, 44 kHz, 2 channel, 24-bit, one pass, all according to dbPowerAmp (which I guess must be the default... fb2k just says WMA9 pretty much).

Do you have the latest burninate plugin?  I think this was fixed quite a long time ago.

The latest version is 2.0.1.

Turns out I was using 2.0, I actually believed burniante was part of the installation.

Anyway, I add that like the way the properties dialog is coming along. What I'm missing is the way Winamp put side-by-side ID3v1 and ID3v2 info in one panel. I wondered who could use that (such as the aforementioned Winamp style or for power users having ID3v2 + APE). Seems like sometimes I edit fields in FB2K and ID3v2 is unaffected, or ID3v2 fields don't show up when there is ID3v1 present. [Personally I like to rid myself of as many ID3v2 tags as possible, which is two clicks in Winamp but one file at a time.]

fixed!: you were right, it was a component, so i decided to try deleting a few i wasn't using one-by-one.  but but but i got it on the first try, i closed all instances of foobar, deleted "foo_dsp_atsurround.dll" and now it closes fine.

i didn't even have that plugin enabled and it might not be the same for everyone but hey, i'm hapee.  avoid that plugin i guess.
