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:

  • Reworked integration with Windows 10 Universal Volume Control. Enabled by default once again.
  • Fixed a bug in upmix DSPs causing incorrect behavior when working with a mono source.
  • Improved reading of certain malformed ID3 tags written by other software.
  • Generic progress dialog now shows yellow pause status when paused.
  • Generic progress dialog no longer remembers its last position.
  • File Operations: improved removal of empty folders; should no longer leave empty folders behind when cancelled in mid-operation.
  • Installed component DLLs should now retain original file modification time, rather than time at which they were installed.
  • Addressed some of known incompatibilities between foobar2000 v1.5 and third party components.
  • Made Converter not write MP3 files with embedded cuesheets. This was an unintended effect of a v1.5 change. A proper setting for this will be added at a later time.
  • Improved Converter feedback when trying to convert a multichannel track to MP3 or MPC, which accept no more than two channels.
  • Fixed a bug causing wrong playback position to be shown after listening to an internet radio.
