[BUG] Foobar using 100% of my HDD

Howdy,

So, for the past week or so my Foobar has been causing my main HDD to spike up to 100% usage. I'm unsure what's causing it. I've been trying to read around online but haven't found any real solutions.

If this makes any difference, I have around 139GB of music on my PC. But, I've had more in the past and didn't run into this issue. If anyone could help me out I'd really appreciate it

HiFi base EQ preset for foobar

Hello foobar community. I'm looking for good EQ settings. I'm not a treble, pop, jazz, etc. fan and the only EQ presets that ever caught my attention were Rock, Metal & Techno (not the regular EDM preset). I like rock and metal because they have good overall quality and the sound of every instrument is recognizable. I like techno a little more because of the higher bass even though the quality drops a little. All other presets sound like a gramophone, no bass and no quality. Can you please help me get the best configuration in foobar to get both? Thanks in advance.

New to foobar and having trouble installing Ottodix Eole theme

Just got onto Foobar and came across a cool looking theme. I followed this guide. I followed everything up until step 3 where I was prompted to install some components which are needed to import the theme. I proceeded to install the components but the spider monkey panel wasn't able to be installed and it came up with this:

Failed to load DLL: foo_spider_monkey_panel.dll Reason: This component is missing a required dependency, 
or was made for different version of foobar2000.

After that I tried to install a different version of the spider monkey panel (an fb2k), which seemingly worked but when I tried importing the configuration again it comes up with:

Error: Spider Monkey Panel v1.4.1 ({A910CE78-62A3-4EA6-8489-F615B45F8E3C}) include failed: 
Path does not point to a valid file: C:\Users\yungpabs\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\themes\eole\js\JStheme_common.js 
File: <main> Line: 1, Column: 1 Stack trace: @<main>:1:1

The file was located in downloads so I tried moving it to where the original foo_spider_monkey_panel.dll is. It came up with the same thing.

Not sure how to go about this, like I said I'm new to foobar so it's probably something real obvious but any help would be appreciated. Cheers

My journey on solving all 5 levels of Google Foobar

Hi there,

I want to share with you guys my journey on Google Foobar. and I hope that it will give you a good read as well as a hard problem to solve during weekend.

https://github.com/letientai299/google-foobar-2021

If you don't know what is Foobar, then here's a quick introduction. It used to be a secret hiring challenge from Google. But now, it's just a secret game, which is not only hard to get into and also hard to pass. It took me 23 days to finish the game. The problem at level 5 itself accounted for 20 days.

Hope you enjoy the journey.

If Foobar ever goes off screen for whatever reason...
  1. Set the exe properties to use 640x480.
  2. Start the app.
  3. Freak out because of the low resolution and then calm down because Foobar is back!
  4. Close the app.
  5. The resolution will reset to normal.
  6. Set the exe properties to not use 640x480.

The app should now be placed on your main monitor and is accessible again.

If you know of a better way to fix this, please share.

Google Foobar Challenge

So today I got the Google foobar challenge thing in my browser. I know it’s pretty rare, so I started googling around and seeing what people had to say about the challenge. I am reading recounts of people with 10+ years experience barely making it though the thing. Now, I am a high school senior lol and I don’t think I’d be remotely prepared for something like this. I know 17 languages and I’ve made a bunch of CS projects and stuff but there is a lot about CS that I don’t even know in the slightest (I am not at all familiar with complex linear algebra and advanced algorithms which I would probably need to know). I’ve already signed in and I don’t want to waste this opportunity (and I haven’t clicked request yet for the first challenge), so my question would be if I can wait to do this challenge sometime down the line when I know more about CS. I’m not even sure if google will be doing this for much longer tho... Any suggestions?

Edit: TIL fluent was the wrong word (know is probably a better word). For clarification I can make a decent project in 17 languages lol not do everything ever in them.

Windows 10 Volume mixer resetting to 100% volume every time foobar is opened

As the title says ^

I've started trying to have more control over the volume levels of programs on my pc so I'm set my speakers/headphones to be much louder and just have all my programs on a low volume setting in the windows volume mixer.

But this causes issues with foobar because everytime I close it and reopen it it will reset to the max volume available for it in the windows volume mixer.

Is this standard foobar2000 player behavior for other users? If not is there a way to make windows remember what I said it's level to in the mixer?

Since elisp doesn't have namespaces, we often prefix function names to avoid name collisions. I've seen names like prefix/foobar and prefix-foobar, but I've never seen anyone do prefix:foobar. Why is that? I just tested it out and it appears to be a valid function name. Is it unidiomatic for some reason?

Foobar and Deezer?

So we already have a YouTube component and i think there is also a Spotify one for subscribers. But what about Deezer? Is if possible to stream songs from Deezer in Foobar, like it works with Youtube? Or is it at least possible to sync Playlists from Deezer to Foobar or the other way around? Meaning: When I put some local file on a foobar playlist, it automatically detects it and does the same on Deezer (even if it might be a different version). Or when i put a song in a Deezer playlist, it searches it in my foobar library and creates the same playlist with matching files. Is there something like this? Because i like both and it would be cool to not create every playlist twice.

Bug/Help: Foobar shows numbers in an album in order downloaded, not in album order (according to metadata)

Like the title says: I downloaded some songs seperate and then put all the metadata in. Now if I click on the album, foobar shows the numbers in the order they were originally downloaded in, not in album order. All my other albums don't have this problem.

This is how it looks when i click the artist (both albums were downloaded this way). This is how it normally looks. I've been looking in the preferences if I can find an option somewhere that has something to do with play order but other dan "Default" I can't find anything.

Does anyone know how I can fix this, other than downloading all the wrong ordered albums again in the right order?

I need some help with FoobarΒ΄s Syntax

Hello.
IΒ΄m reading through the Foobar Syntax right now, and have a question about it.
My Music Folders exists with Subfolders named Disc 01, Disc 02, Disc 03, ect. in it:

Artist\Album\Files

which is:

John Williams\Original Soundtrack\Disc 01\05. Journey To The Island.flac

The goal right now is that if there is a Folder with the name Disc in the Path, it should use the Foldername 3 Folders above the Folder with the Music Files. If there is no Disc Name in the Path, it should use the Name 2 Folders above.
In both cases it should use "John Williams"!
What iΒ΄m right now using is this syntax:

$if((%directoryname%,Disc ),$directory(%path%,3),$directory(%path%,2))

But itΒ΄s not working. I donΒ΄t know if this is even correct.
Thank you very much.

This is an image of the resampler and the 6 options I'm trying to choose from:

Some info about the options can also be found here: https://foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_dsp_multiresampler

https://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Components_0.9/foo_dsp_multiresampler

  • Zero Order Hold: No interpolation, no anti-aliasing.
  • Band-Limited Synthesis: No interpolation, anti-aliased using bandwidth limiting.
  • Linear Interpolation: Simple linear interpolation filter, no anti-aliasing.
  • BLAM - Band-Limited Linear Interpolation: Linear interpolation, with a bandwidth limiting filter applied.
  • Cubic interpolation: Quadratic/Cubic interpolation filter, no bandwidth limiting.
  • Sinc Interpolation: High quality windowed sinc interpolation, with basic bandwidth limiting for downsampling modes. Not as high quality as the resamplers provided by the core, but guaranteed lower latency, and mostly indistinguishable quality at 16 bits per sample or less

>You need to pass a message to the bunny workers, but to avoid detection, the code you agreed to use is... obscure, to say the least. The bunnies are given food on standard-issue plates that are stamped with the numbers 0-9 for easier sorting, and you need to combine sets of plates to create the numbers in the code. The signal that a number is part of the code is that it is divisible by 3. You can do smaller numbers like 15 and 45 easily, but bigger numbers like 144 and 414 are a little trickier. Write a program to help yourself quickly create large numbers for use in the code, given a limited number of plates to work with.

The same digit may appear multiple times in the list, but each element in the list may only be used once.
