I've used Foobar2000 on Windows platform but I used it more like a converter and joined the files together in one file.
I'd like to know is there any chance to get converter functions and other functions for foobar2000 on Mac?
I'd really appreciate converter functions with nero's aac codec on a mac!

Nero's AAC is inferior to Apple's anyway. Not to mention that you need to acquire it somehow.

Hi all :)
Thanx so much for this Mac version :)
It SEEMS to me the first time I used Foobar, playing music from my Mac, stored on my Synology drive, output on my AVR, I DID get the display of artist track etc... Now I only get "Foobar 2000 Audio streaming" on my Denon AVR, Album cover on my TV etc.
Is this something I can setup ? Not sure If I changed something somewhere that changed that...
Thanx for your help :)

First of all, thank you so much for the Mac version! One question I'd like to ask, is there any way to configure the buffer size for reading from network drives? I'd like to read my library over a VPN connection from a NAS and it require a huge buffer for smooth playback. Something like 32 MB at least.
Is there any value for this in the SQLite file?

Really?
When did this happen?
15 years ago it was the other way around!
Are there any recent decent ABX tests about this?

EDIT: I just remembered, that the reason for choosing Nero was quality based encoding.
But has the quality of Apple's codec improved in 15 years?
Back then they were on par for my ears.

ffs, I can't find any of our old listening tests.

They were on par with each other, really. The elevation of Apple's over Nero's was within the margin of error.

Just beware, Nero only ever built their encoder for Windows and Linux, so you'll have to somehow cook up a Wine compatibility layer to even run it on macOS. And if you were thinking of using an AMD "Hackintosh", forget about that, CrossOver's 32 bit on 64 bit compatibility layer only works on Intel processors.
