Random files cause playback errors

Once in a while foobar can't play a file and reports an error. Other players and decoders such as ffmpeg don't have that issue.
I have tried first with v1.4.0 and then with v1.4.2 but both behave the same. Only going back to v1.3.2 solves the issue.

I have upload a sample file that causes such a problem. Can you see what fails foobar decoder and fix it please?

I see nothing failing in either of those versions. What exactly is the error that's reported?

The message I get is :
"Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (Unsupported format or corrupted file): F:\Music\The Hollies\The Hollies - 20 Golden Greats\08. Here I Go Again.flac"

This file plays without errors in Foobar 1.4.2 here, Windows 7 SP1, and tests OK with AudioTester.

So now, your job is to post an installed components report.

Same components are used in v1.3.2  without any issues.
Is there a more thorough debugging tool I can use to pinpoint the problem?

The component report is:

You should update at least DTS decoder. The one you are using now caused some problems.

Re: Random files cause playback errors

Reply #7
Thanks Case. This, so it seems, has fixed the problem.

Interestingly  though, the DTS decoder is way down while flac is high on the priority list of my foobar decoders, and still it manages to have such an impact. Isn't the DTS decoder suppose to be bypassed if its priority is lower than flac decoder?

Because it scans all lossless audio, so that it can decode DTS-WAV (this format looks a bit obsolete though...)

P.S. The plugin shows the following text in its "About" window:

Incorrect encoding?

Re: Random files cause playback errors

Reply #9
Yes, I was unaware that the string became ANSI encoded by the compiler. It now has a u8 prefix, an extension required by bloody Visual Studio.
