Selected Test Results

What works

. installation

. loading and various operations on files (convertion, masstagging, tagging from freeDB, computing / applying replaygain, renaming files, ...)

. playing audio works (but stutters if the system is under heavy load, more so than native players in my experience).

. the preferences menu

. the columns_ui plugin somewhat works

What does not

. columns_ui has issues :

- any use of mouse wheel instantly crashes foobar when in this mode.

- resizing columns with the mouse doesn't fully work (=>need to do it thru preferences)

- clicking a column header doesn't make it sort. => need to right click and choose "sort ascending".

. writing id3v2.4 tags has issues. At least, it was noticed "DISCNUMBER" tags are unsuccessfully written into TPOS ID3 frames (foobar writes a TPOS frame, but it contains nothing instead of the string). this behaviour is only observed when running with wine.

I loaded 4000 mp3 files, and converted the tags from APEv2 to id3v2.4, and so far I only noticed this issue with DISCNUMBER, *and* 2 files that were truncated to zero-size (not sure exactly what caused it, as repeating the process didn't trigger the same issue).

Workarounds

What was not tested

all the other plugins, and lots of features.

Additional Comments

the (rare) observed issues with tagging suggests caution, not recommended for regular tagging operations as it can be destructive on files. Or keep a backup of all files.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

The beta version of foobar2000 uses Directsound by default, which can cause some problems when playing music. In order to get the program to play music properly, you must set the Hardware Acceleration to emulate Directsound. Go to a terimal and type in "winecfg". A window will open with options for you to modify. Click on the Audio tab, and then look for "Hardware Acceleration". It is currently on "Full". Click on it, and you will have a list of options. Click on "Emulation", and then click on "Apply". foobar2000 should now be able to play music. Note that this will make foobar2000 version 0.8.3 give out an error when you try to play an audio file. Just change it back to "Full" in winecfg when you're done using foobar2000 version 0.9 beta.
