I downloaded Foobar2000 for Mac, but it looks really different than the version on my PC.
Is it possible to use all the features of my customized UI that I have on my PC on the Mac version?
Does it allow users to add components at all?
Was a whole new experience when I just tried these combinations today. Such game changing combinations. They really bring running effects on windows to another level.
Hello, how can i play a song in a certain playlist from the command line? I use windows.
Just wondering what FB2k remote apps (paid or free) people are using. I'd prefer one that makes playlist creation and revising most easy from my Android tablet. TIA
Finally I finished my foobar custom layout :)
Just one lack : "album length" don't work with ColumnsUI... (i don't have the courage to rebuild again with esplaylist).

I want to encode some music with different encoder like QAAC, FDK, FHG, NEROAAC etc...
So how to automatically add encoder name after the music is encoded?
Foobar2000 can transfer metadata after the song encoded. But how to add encoder name in 'Encoded by' section?
Foobar is great, but the theming doesn't work well with Win 10. What have people been moving to?
Hello, I currently use Foobar2000 as my music player, it works well and best of all it's setup in a way I like.However, even though I can achieve this same setup in Linux using wine, I don't have much desire to go through all that trouble for a program that isn't even open source, I care about free as in freedom, not just freeware.
So, what I have struggled to find is an actively developed, open source music player that can achieve a similar layout to my current Foobar layout. It doesn't need to be exact, if the elements are there I will be happy.
Here is a photo of my current layout: https://imgur.com/a/DI77CzXIt is very similar to other music player programs like musicbee (https://getmusicbee.com/) and Dopamine (http://www.digimezzo.com/software/dopamine/), but sadly both of those programs are also only on windows and closed source. EDIT: It seems dopamine is actually open source and being developed for Linux, but isn't in a usable state yet.
The basic elements that I want are:
I'm sorry for the long-winded post, but I hope that more details makes it easier to answer!
I guess a good TL;DR would be I would like to find a open source Linux music player that can sort my music by albums and display them in a tiled album cover view.
Thank you all for any information you may have.
I would love to join some official / unofficial discord servers for discussions related to fb2k.....
Pls link some of them if u know any.
Thanks in advance :)
Hello, I know there is foobar2000 controller app on google play but is it still reliable in 2021? Maybe there is something better now?
I made an impulse file for foobar2000 to remove dynamic compression for the loudness wars if anybody wants to try it out i'll upload it.
I have a laptop and I'm using its onboard headphone jack. In my Windows 10 sound control panel I have my Realtek Audio default device's Default Format set to 24 bit, 48000 Hz in advanced properties. I only have 2 options there 16 bit, 48000 Hz and 24 bit, 48000 Hz. Both exclusive mode checkboxes are checked.
In foobar in preferences>playback>output I have the output data format set to 24-bit. As far as I know this is okay and 16 bit files can be played normally with this setting.
I installed the WASAPI component, but I can't play 16 bit 44100 Hz FLAC files. I can only play 24 bit 48000 Hz files. Because of this I added a resampler (dBpoweramp/SSRC) in my DSP list and selected 48000 Hz as the target sampling rate. Now after I did this sound quality definitely improved when listening to several of my CD rips.
I'm just wondering if there's anything wrong with resampling 44100 Hz files to 48000 Hz and if there is any way for me to play 44100 Hz files without resampling.
I'm trying to rip the audio from a live performance I got from one of the music DVD's I own. I tried dragging the .mkv file into Foobar2000 to convert to flac, and it split it all up by chapters, but I kept getting the "Unable to open item for playback (Unsupported format or corrupted file)" error when I tried to play or convert that. Unfortunately, when I dragged the .mka file I ripped from the .mkv file, I got the same error.
Can Foobar2000 not handle mastroka extensions anymore? I'm using v1.6.4, if that helps.
So I have not been able to find any solid information on what the icon of foobar2000 is supposed to be/represent, and I think it looks like an alien cat but I could be wrong. Will someone please help me figure out what the icon is supposed to be/represent?
I Have started using Foobar and would like to ask a few questions about my configuration. I will leave a link to a screenshot with my current config. My Main 2 questions are as follows.
Is it possible to change the white sections to a different color? and Is it possible to remove the output text in the bottom left corner?
The reason I am asking about the output text is when I expand the drop down menu the options are cut off by the split so I cant see the full name of the output I am selecting.
Any help on on these subjects is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Does anyone know any Parametric Equalizer available for Foobar 2000 ?
Hi, currently at work I listen to my music by remoting into my home PC and playing it that way, is there a more efficient way to stream my foobar2000 playlists to another PC?
Hi, is there any chance to get foobar2000 using the automatic star/stop feature ot the Sony WH1000-XM4? It works with every audio app, e. g. youtube in browser, but not with foobar2000. The start/stop feature stops playing while not wearing the headset. It starts automatically playing while wearing the headset.
I have a method for scraping lyrics into my files that works well due to the recent source scripts that have become available. It was a pain to narrow down my procedure and which scripts should be used and in which order. I want to save others that are interested in doing the same sort of thing for their collections as much hassle as I can. I tried to explain the reasoning behind the steps as much as possible so you can understand what I've learned and alter for your desired results. If anyone has ideas to make this procedure better that'd be great!
To batch download as many lyrics into the track tags as possible. Get both non-synced and synced lyrics - mapped to different tags - for maximum compatibility with various applications.
In foobar2000, use Lyrics Show 3 Panel and install Veksho's multi lyric source plugin. Lyrics Show 3 Panel adds a
Download lyrics... option to the right-click menu of the tracks so that you can batch download lyrics when multiple tracks are selected, which is the main reason I use it rather than ESLyric.
Save to tag
Go to the Lyric Searching tab. Select 'Search for this type of lyric:
Only synced (you'll change this later after all available synced lyrics are found, but the first run-through just get synced ones).
Prefer synceddoesn't actually prefer and grab synced lyrics when non-synced lyrics are available, so don't use that option.
The following search order includes only the sources that can actually provide synced lyrics.
SYNCED LYRICS. The reason for this is that I may have good lyrics
I have been using this program for years and they always update in a timely manner when vulns are discovered. Security is pretty tough to do, but they do it right. https://www.gpg
Another example of software that actually does it right for a change would be Clementine music player, in my opinion. https://www.clementine-player.org/
Anyone have any other examples of actually good software we can check out?
I'm trying to move my playlist from itunes that I've added on to for years and I want it to have the same track order. I have a lot of anime and game soundtracks so the albums and artists are always different and sometimes in Japanese, so I have it organized by series.
I've got almost 2000 tracks from a lot of different series and manually organizing it is gonna take a while, is there a way to load the tracklist from itunes?
I've got a Google Home Mini and since it has a better speaker than my device, I was hoping I could have foobar play through that. Are there any plugins that allow chromecast playback for foobar?
It's annoying to have to adjust the volume for everything I listen to, in foobar you just set it to use the Advanced Limiter and everything should be equal (this is without RG and stuff).
Is there a way to get it so on IOS mobile foobar2000 it can Last.fm scrobble your media files? I just like knowing all the data of what I listen to, including my MP3 and flac files and stuff with my streaming service plays. Because I know how to do it on computer but I wouldn’t think the mobile equivalent would be any easier. If it’s not possible can someone direct me to a free IOS media file player that can? Thanks in advance
I recently got into this HIFI stuff.
Just downloaded Foobar2000 and I am trying to get the best settings.
I read about using WASAPI or ASIO. (Changing it to my output device (EVENT) )
I read this post from this user that said WASAPI or ASIO are not necessary anymore.
Is this true? Or should I still be using them?
this was his answer and post
Also I have a Topping E30 paired with SCHIIT Heresy.
Can I stick with 32 bit 44.1HZ for my Default windows format ?
Exactly as the title says. Has anyone run into this before? I know this is more of a general technical issue, but I've only had it happen with foobar2000. Any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Edit: I've been using foobar2000 for at least 4-5 years now, and it didn't used to do this; the issue seems to have come up sometime within the last 4-6 months or so. I've tried updating to the latest version, but it did nothing to rectify the issue.
I can't get Foobar2000 android to work with Foobar media server on PC. Port is set to 56923 on "Basic Settings" tab. Hostname is in 192.xxx.x.xxx:56923 format. I have set login and password. UPnP is enabled on the router. I enabled UDP port forwarding for port 56923 with internal address being the same 192.xxx.x.xxx. On mobile I put in "http://login:[email protected]:56923" and it says network error.
I want to trim some .m4a files from the end. How can I do that with foobar2000 ?
hi. I've been delaying upgrading to versions above 1.3 for a long time because of this feature however the improved streaming functionality in 1.4 and above has made me bight the bullet. •Pressing “next” past the end of playlist now restarts the playlist even without “repeat” mode. It means that foobar 2000 will not stop at the end of playlists, during continuous play which I find incredibly frustrating.
Is there any way to revert this behaviour to that in versions below 4.1 where foobar will simply stop when it reaches the end of a playlist?
so im trying to use my youtube playlist with foobar but when i paste my playlist url into it it just does nothing can anyone hep with this?
