foobar2000 v1.0 beta 2a is now out.

Release Notes on foobar2000.org
Download page on foobar2000.org (downloads via BitTorrent protocol)
(Distribution of betas via BitTorrent not up for debate)

Issues fixed in v1.0 beta 2 from the previous beta:
  • New: Converter encodes to .m4a rather than to .mp4.
  • New: Notices for components that no longer serve any purpose.
  • Bug: Certain ASX playlist files are not parsed properly.
  • Bug: Unwanted playlist view scrolling when deleting items in certain scenarios.
  • Bug: cannot bind context menu commands to toolbar buttons.
  • Bug: "initialization failure" errors when making a clean non-portable install rather than upgrading from an earlier version.
  • Bug: possible unnecessary tag reloads on Media Library contents on startup.
  • Bug: doubleclicking the Selection Properties element no longer brings up the Properties dialog.

Beta 2a corrects the issue with foo_uie_biography being mis-detected as one of the obsolete components.

Thanks for the release.

Ok, so I have done extensive work on my perl script that just returns the asx generated by Clear Channel radio streams (asx, mms).

Here is the asx as passed by clearchannel:


Yes, I tried changing the content type to:

But it doesn't make a difference for foobar. For the purpose of letting you read the script in the browser I don't have a content type set.

So looking at the asx ClearChannel returns, can you tell me what needs to be fixed? I have a subroutine that tries to fix their asx to be more xml like:

'&' => '&',
'<' => '&lt;',
'>' => '&gt;',
'"' => '&quot;'

But doing that change doesn't help foobar load. I also tried just changing the ampersand with no luck. Is some part of the clearchannel asx broken or needs to be rewritten to work with foobar?

Thanks if you can take a look at it. Otherwise I will just have to stick with mslive or use vlc.

I also tried changing my script to 302 redirect foobar2000 to a generated asx file linux (ordorica.org/tune.asx), but it made no difference.

The quotes are fine, as are the angle brackets. You just need to replace the ampersands with entities. In the links. Otherwise, they're not valid. (Unless, somehow, those links actually contain <> or ". Which I doubt.)
