I've had success with just about every aspect of this, including most plug-ins, and I use this as my default audio player. I use stock Ubuntu Trusty, JACK Audio Connection Kit along with a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 as my USB audio interface. My music is stored on a networked ZFS volume (shared via CIFS), and foobar has no problems reading files.
It took a bit of tweaking the JACK buffer settings to get the audio to playback without any x-runs, but after I figured out the correct settings for my hardware, I get bit-perfect playback and near-perfect stability. Scrobbling works perfectly, as do these plugins/features:
What does not
What was not tested
I have several plugins that I did not (yet) test:
I also only did not test other audio interfaces, your mileage my vary depending on your hardware. My library is only FLAC and mp3, I did not test .wma, .ogg, or other formats.
This worked better than I ever expected. There isn't another comparable audio player for linux (at least with this kind of plug-in support), so having this is very convenient. I was extremely surprised how easily it handles hi-res FLAC files, and the fact that most of my plugins still work is even better. It's not perfect and in particular I miss a few plugins, but it feels almost as stable as actual linux player (I use it daily), but with a huge plug-in library to choose from.
