    foobar2000 News



    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 preferring a utilitarian, straightforward user interface to let 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. You'll also find tabs for viewing a spectrogram, a spectrum, and VU meter of music currently being played, display album art, and synchronize with portable players including iPods.

    foobar2000 v1.3.4 Released
    10-09-2014

    Whats New:
    • Fixed problems with accessing very long file names on network shares.
    • Fixed incorrect display of converter tag transfer option state in the converter setup dialog.
    • Improved compatibility with malformed ID3v2 tags.
    • Added option to prevent hard disk sleep while playing [Advanced Preferences].
    • Fixed performance issues with Matroska file reading (1.3 regression).
    • Fixed Converter problems with ripping CD to single file with chapters (1.3 regression).
    • Added an option to suppress startup dialog about bad last shutdown.
    • RAR unpacker updates:
    • Now using unrar.dll which can be updated easily in the future.
    • Disregard that, unrar.dll is unusable due to bugs and limitations. Now using RAR source directly with own patches,
    just like previous foobar2000 versions did [beta 4].
    • Added support for RAR5 format.
    • Updated FFmpeg to 2.4.1 [beta 4].
    • Updated FLAC code to the latest git (as of 2014-10-07), with bug fixes and speedups [beta 5].
    • Fixed a very old and very bad Matroska tag writing bug [1.3.4 final].
