What works

Everything, except very minor stuff. I use lots of plugins, and all have worked.

Be sure to copy msvcp60.dll, utf8api.dll and libcurl.dll into the main program directory. All these .dlls are downloadable online if you're fortunate enough not to have a half-alive Windoo installation nearby.

What does not

Holding the shift key and clicking in a scroll bar to get right to the top or bottom of a list immediately doesn't work like it does in Wincrash. Told you it was minor.

Workarounds

What was not tested

I use a lot of features in foobar2000, so hopefully not too much got past me.

Additional Comments

Some features of foobar2000 work better under Linux than Windows because Linux allows you to delete or rename files which are in use without an error message, foobar just keeps on playing the song and processing the files, whereas Windows gaks and stops deleting or renaming the requested list. I love foobar2000 so much, I am ecstatic that it works so well in Wine. I tested dozens of well-known and obscure Linux music players, and not only were they missing favorite features from fb2k, they were generally slooooooow with large databases on hardware that shouldn't have to be lagging. No Wine configuration or DLL overrides required... (and, it sounds beautiful, and never skips, even on a 5-year-old box)

HowTo / Notes

Note about foobar2000 0.8.3:
On a fresh Wine install, some of the plugins will not work. In order for all plugins to work, you can either install WMP7 manually, or use Winetricksand set it to install IE6 and WMP7. This process will get all the plugins working in foobar2000.
