What works

Everything works with no issues, except for playback of specific media types causes errors without crashing when specific types are played, such as the WMA type. 

What does not

The playback of few specific file types, one of which being WMA. 


To play files such as WMA, you need to first get a 32-bit wine prefix, and use winetricks to install wmp10(windows media player 10) and after installation foobar should perfectly play WMA tracks. 

What was not tested

Playback of some types was not tested (my libary is 90% mp3 and WMA) and ogg, flac have not been tested, aswell as some other rarer file types.
