Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

  • Main program;
  • Plugins (known also as Components);
  • MP3/AAC/OGG/WAV/FLAC playing;
  • UI customization;
  • Web stream playing;
  • UPnP streaming (as server, using dedicated plugin).

What does not


What was not tested

  • WMA file format (probably requires Windows media pack, just like in windows 10 itself);
  • CD playing (OS couldn't map the USB DVD drive used as CD player, so Wine couldn't use it).

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Since I'm not using WMA, I'll include workaround for users of that format (taken from another test result, created by Blake):

To play files such as WMA, you need to first setup a 32-bit Wineprefix. Then use winetricks to install Windows Media Player 10:

winetricks wmp10

After installation foobar should play WMA tracks perfectly.
