Some of the basic features include full unicode support, ReplayGain support and native support for several popular audio formats.

Features:

  • Audio formats supported: MP1, MP2, MP3, MP4, MPC, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC / Ogg FLAC, WavPack, WAV, AIFF, AU, SND, CDDA.
  • Full unicode support.
  • Advanced tagging capabilities.
  • Support for transcoding all supported audio formats using the Converter component (requires external commandline encoder executables for different output formats).
  • ReplayGain support - both playback and calculation.
  • Customizable keyboard shortcuts.
  • Open component architecture allowing third-party developers to extend functionality of the player.

What's New:

his is an incremental update improving upon 1.4 series features and addressing reported 1.4 series regressions.

  • File Operations: Fixed window order bugs with Windows 10 1809 and newer
  • Fixed creation of crash reports from stack overflow crashes.
  • Fixed some Ogg files being unplayable since version 1.4.
  • Changed order of written FLAC metadata blocks to work around bugs in Windows Explorer.
  • Misc bug fixes.
  • Made Converter never overwrite the source files.
  • Fixed Properties autocomplete vs multiline edit box clash.
  • Fixed earlier 1.4 series regression with writing of ID3v2 COMMENT fields to TXXX frames instead of COMM.
  • Fixed incorrect Converter output with both “don't reset DSP between tracks” and “copy other files” features in use (beta 2).
  • Fixed drag&drop glitches on Windows 10 with multiple monitors having different pixel densities.
  • Regardless, this is still a bug in Windows 10, not in foobar2000.
  • Fixed Default UI preferences groups & columns drag&drop glitches.
  • Fixed incorrect formatting of written EXTM3U playlists.
  • Fixed incorrect truncation of specific long filenames in File Operations.
  • Fixed unnecessary reopening of remote files being played.
  • Fixed playback marker in playlists not being correctly retained in some conditions.
  • Improved internal IMA ADPCM WAV decoder (fixed rounding errors, fixed incorrect output duration).
  • foobar2000 now refuses to open 24-bit WMA lossless files on Windows 10 - which would otherwise decode incorrectly.
  • You can work around it by feeding WMA files to foo_input_ffmpeg component.
