What works

Foobar version tested: 1.4.3

No regressions found since: wine 3.0.3 & Foobar 1.4.0

  • Audio playback and functions (play, pause, stop, next, volume adjustment, etc)
  • Full customization (toolbar, layout, preferences, context menu)
  • Media library (monitoring, adding new folders, defaults to user music folder)
  • Opening sound files (drag&drop, open-with, searching/filtering)
  • Sound file types: flac, mp3, m4a, wav
  • Internet radio streaming and podcast (artist and track id retrieval)
  • File operations (moving, copying, renaming, editing file properties)
  • Visualizations and album art (except full screen)
  • DSP (equalizer, replay gain, cross fade, up sample)
  • Keyboard shortcuts (didn't test all combinations)
  • Console (update, clear, write to file)
  • Theme import&export
  • Updating to new version of Foobar2000
  • Components: (note that not all vanilla functionality has been tested after installing a component)

What does not

  • Hardware media buttons
  • Optical CD playback (was able to get F2K to play the songs but even with a workaround the drive was overworked and slow)
  • Smooth resizing (works fine but might leave some non-intrusive artifacts)
  • Sound file types: wma (the build in console for F2K shows all the files in your media library that aren't able to load)
  • Visualizations and album art in full screen mode
  • Components:


  • In case volume adjustment doesn't work for you, make sure you have default audio device selected in both foobar and wine configuration and foobar is launched in a winXP environment
  • For CD playback its probably much faster and easier to just rip the CD with a different program and then add it to your music library
  • To playback wma sound files you'll need to setup a 32-bit wine-prefix and install windows media player 10 with winetricks

What was not tested

  • Networking (proxy)
  • Audio file types: anything not listed before
  • DSP: anything not listed before
  • Components:
    • foo_vis_shpeck 0.3.7 (shpeck itself seems to run fine but I was unable to get my hands on an older version of milkdrop to actually test the visualization part, using milkdrop 2 gave driver errors and I suspect there might be problems with full screen view anyway)
    • Anything not listed before

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

  • Sound file associations both work and don't work, meaning the build in file association doesn't work but with wine I can have all my sound files associated to foobar anyway
  • Installing foobar in portable mode works just as expected but isn't recommended since wine won't be able to associate and track foobar in the future to, for example, uninstall. To prevent future headaches in case you don't want to do everything manually, just install foobar standard mode.
