What works

Installed older version of Foobar2000 (1.3.3) for compatibility with components that aren't working with newer versions (tested on win).

  • all basic functionality (except volume control)
  • fast loading and smooth playback (while it does require a bit more from the cpu it seems to work even faster then on windows)
  • channel up sampling
  • customization
  • visualization
  • library (updates as well)
  • file operations (moving/copying/renaming)
  • facets 1.0 component (search works fine, scroll bars not visible at start until use but still work as intended)
  • file types: flac, mp3, m4a, wav

What does not

  • volume control
  • * opening sound files to foobar (there are 2 programs listed as 'foobar2000' one opens component and other theme import prompt, HOWEVER: drag & dropping files into foobar does work as intended)
  • * sound file associations (probably due the previous)
  • smooth resizing (works fine but looks choppy)
  • lyric show panel 0.4.4 component (fails to connect to servers, this started being a problem in win10 so my personal changes might be the cause, local saved lyrics load fine)
  • hardware media buttons
  • CD playback (honestly never tested this in win so my personal changes might be the cause)
  • file types: none found

* these problem don't show up any more and files are opened fine in foobar, I have no idea what caused (or in this case fixed) the issue and/or if its going to act up in the future.


What was not tested

Additional Comments

Since this is a heavily customized install of foobar some problems might be native to that instead of wine. In the future I might try a complete fresh install with the latest version of foobar. Apart from couple of annoying problems (which I'm sure some might be fixable) foobar runs pretty good.
