Hi Andrew,
in the last few weeks I did everything to get the right timing in foobar-scheduler.
...
Maybe I can give you my scheduler-cfg-file, to check this out more in detail?

Hi! Thanks for your investigation! It seems that I should rework some parts of the scheduler, though I'm still not sure about the reasons of such misbehavior.
Anyway, you gave me very useful information! Cfg file is not necessary, thx!

A new thing I also noticed, is that the active Task stays in the Date-/Time-Eventlist until its actions are executed.
Is this new with 4.11 or just for me?

Hmm, nothing has changed, probably you never noticed this before.

Hi Andrew and thanks for your answer!

If I find enough time, I'm going to change the PC in the next weeks.
I give you feedback, if I find something out.

For the Date-/Time-Eventlist-Topic: Looks like this has been like this before. I didn't notice years ago ;-)

Thanks for your work!

Andrew, what about the new option "start convert.." to schedule online radio recording?

I replaced the PC, and switched from WinXP to Win2003Server and my foobar2000-scheduler still looses time and starts 5-20 secs to early.
This time I did not touch any NTP-Values in Windows just for testing purposes. I will add a W32Time-Command tomorrow and see whats happening.

If you know how to use foobars commandline-tools or runcmd, you are afaik already able to record on the fly.

Soon I'll rework internals of scheduler and this problem will be resolved! I don't promise it will happen very quickly but the fix will appear!

  • 4.01
    Volume fade in/out now uses logarithmic scale.

Bug: Logarithmic fade broken
Scheduler 4.11, fb2k v1.3.1, Windows 7 x64 (Ult, SP1)

To reproduce:
For example create an action which does the following:
  • Set the volume to -30dB
  • Set the volume to 0dB with 30 sec fade


Resulting volume in dB each second:
-30, -23, -20, -17, -15, -14, ...
Nonlinear on the logarithmic scale.

(Animation is at 1FPS, with delay of 2 seconds after the -30dB change to clarify the steps.)

Expected volume increase of 1dB per second:
-30, -29, -28, -27, -26, -25, ...
Linear on the logarithmic scale.

Comment:
This bug/"feature"(?) makes long fades very misleading. For example in a 30 min fade most of the volume change (what you hear) happens in the first few minutes. So it would be really nice if the fade was logarithmic to equally spread the perceived change of volume (dB) during longer fades.

Is the source for this plugin available? If so I could probably send you a patch to fix this if you don't have the time.

Other than that thanks again for the useful plugin.

Hi. I use foobar to listen web radios.
With Scheduler i could continues to listen after a network problem. But when occurs 2 or more network problems, the scheduler doesn't works.
I've put to playback after a stop or end-of-file signal events and to re-enable event.
Works fine for the first and second networks failures, but then the event doesn't appear in the status window after this.
Could this be solved to works always?

Thanks.

Set playback order - (mine is repeat)
Set volume to -10 db with fade during 180 seconds

Hello!

I can't get scheduler to work the way I want it to...
Basically, I need following to happen:

At 12:30 change to different playlist with 1 song
Play a song
Wait for song to end
Switch back to the previous playlist
Set random playback order
Start playback

I need this setup to play every day of the week once an hour
I've setup this schedule:

The only problem is that, after changing playlist, foobar2000 plays a song, and that is it, nothing else happens...
Can anyone help?

No, I have not.
Can you recreate this schedule on your player and see if it works?
EDIT: I think, I know what is the problem - "Wait until N tracks have played" function is not working...

So I just downloaded it and tried it out last night, however it doesn't seem to be working.
I fiddled with it this morning to make sure everything was correct, however even when I set the time to something nearby to test it nothing seems to happen.

Perhaps I've missed a step or something isn't working right. I'll post a picture of my events and actions lists in-case I'm missing something.

EDIT: So I just got the scheduler to finally play some music. Looks like I'm receiving about a minute or two of delay however. -I may have also mistaken put it on PM by accident for previous trails....
