foobar2000 1.5 Beta 19/ foobar2000 1.4.8

foobar2000 is an advanced freeware audio player for the Windows platform. Some of the basic features include full unicode support, ReplayGain support and native support for several popular audio formats.

foobar2000 isn’t just for early adopters or software jukebox fetishists. It doesn’t mess with fancy buttons or bright colors. Instead of to prefer a utilitarian, straightforward user interface it lets the music speak for itself.

foobar2000 uses tabs and panels to help the user navigate its plain, but functional, user interface. You can customize the interface using several layout options. Menu options and recognizable command buttons reside at the top of the window.

Two panels, each with tabbed menus, reside on the left side of the window. From there, you can view the album list and the properties of a selected artist or song.

In foobar2000 you’ll also find tabs for viewing a spectrogram, a spectrum, and VU meter of music currently being played, display album art. Furthermore, you can synchronize it with portable players including iPods.

foobar2000 Main features:

  • Supported audio formats: MP3, MP4, AAC, CD Audio, WMA, Vorbis, Opus, FLAC, WavPack, WAV, AIFF, Musepack, Speex, AU, SND… and more with additional components.
  • Gapless playback.
  • Easily customizable user interface layout.
  • Advanced tagging capabilities.
  • Support for ripping Audio CDs
  • Transcoding all supported audio formats using the Converter component.
  • Full ReplayGain support.
  • Customizable keyboard shortcuts.
  • Open component architecture allowing third-party developers to extend functionality of the player.

Changes in foobar2000 1.5:

  • New and improved Properties dialog, with the ability to manipulate attached pictures as well as scan and modify ReplayGain values.
  • Greatly improved Selection Properties performance for large track lists.
  • Various prompts (such as delete/recycle) now come with a “do not show this again” checkbox.
  • Restored pre-1.4 behavior of main-window-hidden/notification-icon-only status being remembered after foobar2000 restart.
  • Added logging of Media Library scanning errors – “show errors” button in Media Library Preferences.
  • Added Advanced Preferences option for flushing playback queue on manual track change (default: on).
  • Made “Open containing folder” command work with tracks in archives – opens folder containing the archive.
  • Added an option to preserve last-modified timestamps of tracks when updating tags.
  • Additional safeguards against corrupted configuration in case of a system crash while saving (FlushFileBuffers).
  • File Operations: delete/recycle prompt always says “Delete” rather than “Recycle”, since not every volume supports recycle action.
  • FFmpeg 3.4.6, now compiled with MS compiler, binary size reduced due to DLL runtime.
  • FLAC 1.3.3
  • Implemented reading of cue+bin audio CD images.
  • Implemented asynchronous drag&drop, for less stalls when dragging tracks from foobar2000 to another program.
  • Removed transacted filesystem support. There are no known benefits to it and even Microsoft documentation says not to use it.
  • Improved programming interfaces for External Tags and Skip Track components.
  • Made album art loading/resizing operations in Default User Interface asynchronous. Large pictures no longer make the app momentarily unresponsive.
  • Converter: Added Opus encoder selection for –music / –speech modes.
  • Converter: New list control in various dialogs. Column sizes are remembered.
  • Improved playback position reporting with Skip Silence and similar DSP effects.
  • Made possible to check for updates of components listed but not hosted on foobar2000.org.
  • Enabled embedded cuesheet support for MP3 files.
  • Made WavPack/DSD MD5 visible – using another field so Verifier doesn’t try to verify it.

Changes in foobar2000 1.4.8:

  • Corrected a 1.4.7 regression causing certain old components to stop working correctly.

Changes in foobar2000 1.4.7:

  • File Operations: Fixed window order bugs with Windows 10 1809 and newer
  • Fixed creation of crash reports from stack overflow crashes.
  • Fixed some Ogg files being unplayable since version 1.4.
  • Changed order of written FLAC metadata blocks to work around bugs in Windows Explorer.
  • Misc bug fixes.
