Beta version of foobar2000.
ÂPlaying all formats supported by the application.
Transcoding any supported Âplayback format to Ogg Vorbis and MPEG 4 AAC (I used AoTuv and Nero, respectively.)
Transcoding any supported playback format to MP3. (With Helix MP3 encoder or FhG encoder)
Tagging/Batch tagging any supported playback format with FreeDB data with built in tagger.
What does not
ÂEqualizer (Crashes the program after opening up a window that flashes bars of Âyellow, red, and green).
The LAME MP3 encoder.
Playing/Ripping audio CDs. (It will report that no drives were found even though I've assigned my drive a letter).
What was not tested
Ripping/Playing CDs since no drive is detected.
I should mention that I'm on Kubuntu, which doesn't have Pulseaudio, so I've configured dmix, which works better anyway.

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.

Launch winecfg with below command.
In audio tab, only select oss driver.
Using below command to launch foobar2000, or just prefix the launch command in the shortcut with padsp
padsp wine foobar2000.exe
P.S. This workaround may crash pulseaudio.
