- Easily customizable user interface layout.
- Advanced tagging capabilities.
- Support for ripping Audio CDs as well as transcoding all supported audio formats using the Converter component.
- Full ReplayGain support.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.6.1

  • Added support for HLS: HTTP Live Streaming. To use, add internet M3U8 file through Add Location dialog.
  • Enabled icy-metadata support for Ogg FLAC internet radio streams.
  • Updated Properties / ReplayGain page layout if editing a single file.
  • Improved Properties dialog performance, list of autocomplete entries is populated asynchronously.
  • Enabled embedded album art loading from raw .AAC files with ID3 tags.
  • Updated FFmpeg to 4.3.1.
  • Added support for playing Matroska A_MS/ACM content.
  • Fixes for rare AAC codec configurations that FFmpeg doesn't fully support - an add-on decoder can override the built-in one for such special cases.
  • Decoders are now made aware of output sample rate (from Windows Mixer settings) and can decode certain formats directly to the intended sample rate, skipping potential resampling steps.
  • Fixed "fade on manual track change" setting not being used since version 1.6.
  • Changing volume no longer affects Windows Mixer sliders; restarting Foobar2000 no longer resets Windows Mixer slider to 100%.
  • Mitigated crash when initiating drag&drop of a very large number of songs (such as Album List "all music").
  • Enabled support for 7-zip archives using PPMd compression.
