I don't think so, since it already is win2k/xp only...

I'm pretty sure that it's just going to be for Win2K/XP, because zZzZzZz has already made clear the apparently large task it would be to now port it to another OS.  BTW, is there any sort of release schedule for fb2k?

Bug in 0.26b?? I cannot get Foobar to save its window size and position

I can't either - maybe it isn't saved anywhere, it is just temporary.
peter, can you make it save to foobar2000.cfg?

Also, adding manifest resource would be nice for XP users (I know you don't like it, but it is very easy to implement and doesn't mess up anything).

And if he doesn't like it, there's no reason for him to add it. Really, i must say hate this crap too...

Yeah, personally I use Luna theme but I also don't like the *new style* in programs.

Taskbar looks good and that's why I use it.

I added personally made manifest to it - looks very nice to me.
It's OK.

feature request/bug report: with id3v1, track numbers are shown like this: "TRACK=1", while with Vorbis comments they're shown like this: "TRACKNUMBER=2".

I don't use any other sorts of comments so I can't help you any further, hope you don't mind, zZzZzZz, : )

known. this is more of a problem with compatibility between APE tag specs and Vorbis tag specs.

In the mean time I can use
Code: [Select]
$if2($num(%tracknumber%,2),$num(%track%,2))
as a workaround. : )

edit: $num($if(%track%,%track%,%tracknumber%),2) seems better, dunno why the default string has tracknumber and track in the other order though.

Request: An "open file direct" button, that opens a file, clears all other playlist entries and plays that file (like Winamp's eject button). Would be good to have this option in the tray right click context menu too.

Very promising player, keep up the great work!

"Repeat one" and "Follow cursor" seem to be broken in 0.27b.

fixed in 0.27c

Possible bug in 0:27c: While holding the "seek time forward" (right arrow) down, it seems to randomly reset back to 0:00 before reaching the end of the track.

(BTW, that was the quickest update to a request i've ever seen, thanks!)

with what format ?

Well it's done it with an few MP3's and a FLAC so far (CBR 192 MP3), I can't pinpoint the bug to any particular file, i'll do some tests and report any specific patterns.

Oh, also, I just found a possible bug in the "open file" option, it clears the playlist and puts the opened file into it, but it plays the previous file played rather than the newly opened one.

*edit* I'm sure someone has asked this already, but is there any plans to add keyboard alt shortcuts to control the drop down menu's in foobar?

sounds like you have "repeat one" enabled.

Foobar2000 suggestions

Reply #42
You were right, I had repeat one enabled. Kind of confusing as my goal was to repeat the one file i'd added.

Foobar2000 suggestions

"open" with "repeat one" fixed in current build, too lazy to post it now.
alt shortcuts are on todo list.
still not sure about "reset to zero" problem, but it's more likely an effect of holding cursor key and hitting end of file.

I am assuming that you hate wma with a passion.  I personally try to avoid it as a plague.  But will that format ever be supported?  I have a few rare live songs that I downloaded which is wma format, it would be nice that foobar can play them.

No way with WMA!

Well, sorting revisited...
Sorting by tracknumber sorts again by filename (0.27c).
'Sort by...' %track% performs explorer style sorting: 1,10,11...19,2,20...29,3 (not that usefull, IMHO).

zZzZzZz,

Just out of curiosity: Why no id3v2 support?

Foobar2000 suggestions

Reply #48
libid3 takes 100k of exe space just to read bloody tags. ultimate bloatware. and i never figured how to use it anyway (*cough* "tag --removeid3v2 --force ape2 *.mp3").
id3v2 support might come in form of an optional "component" later, tag reading stuff is exposed to cross-dll component interface.

Some UT ImpulseTrackers have some extra minutes in foobar than in Winamp (using lastest X-Fixer's build).
Also, when you skip foward or backward with arrows, playback starts from the begining.
