Hello,


1. I'm quite sure this is a main application issue, as I had an old album art and track info addon, which have since removed. I have recently added 'shpeck' milkdrop addon as well as an ipod manager component (foo_drop.dll) but I'm 98.9% sure this issue occurred before these components were added.

2. I have tried to manually query the troubleshooter, and it returned with: "No known problematic components found."
(I have tried searching the forum for previous posts regarding this issue, and only found this: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....=updating+files
it just has a response with a link to the rules.)

3. I am using the latest stable version v1.1.6, I have skimmed through the changelog and didn't appear to see that this issue has been resolved, so no I haven't attempted to run any betas.

4. I am simply trying to get foobar2000 to play music without giving me 3 (or any) popups for every single song. Yes they only popup for a second, but it is very distracting and annoying. After recently getting v1.1.6, I expected it to generally behave as v0.9.5 (which I had used for quite a while now) but this issue started occurring.

Issue: No matter whether my playlist has 1 or 100 songs in it, for every single song, at around the 1 min 20 second second mark, around 3 'updating files' popups flash on the screen, and when I say flash, I mean they popup real quickly and then disappear. The windows themselves can't always be seen, but I notice them in the start bar every time. If you'll please notice the console log below, where it says "Reopening played file after update:" is basically when the popup(s) occur. I was doing nothing when those were written in the console.

I have a screenshot if that helps (Yes, the screenshot is shown with v1.1.5 but after taking it, I updated to v1.1.6 and the issue still happens):


5. In this example, I was playing an mp3 I had previously ripped with Easy CD-DA Extractor, but this happens with all mp3s I play and I'm quite sure any audio file for that matter.

Reopening played file after update: "T:\Music\CDs\Offspring - Splinter\04. The Offspring - Hit That.mp3"


I am running Windows XP Pro (5.1.2600) Service Pack 3 with most windows updates.
I have a basic Creative 5.1 soundcard and my mp3s are stored on a separate drive to windows, and foobar is also on it's own drive.

Please ask if any more information is needed.


If someone could please, please help me with this, it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your time. smile.gif

Though it is not checked by default you may want to look at:

Preferences>advanced>Tools>playback Stats> and confirm that you do not want foobar to rework stats to file tags on each playback.

And I have no idea with misc_addons is. You may want to look at it's functions.

On going to 'about' on that component, I get a link to this acropolis blog?... ah yes, I think it was part of the milk drop stuff I added (apparently it was needed).


Anyways, I've removed it and *plays a song*.....

Wow, that appears to have fixed it!

Man, I kinda forgot I had added it and thought that 'foo_misc_addons' was a default addon or part of the main app... Sheeeeeit.

Btw, for some reason, I don't seem to have 'playback Stats' under 'Tools', just: Converter, iPod Manager, Replay Gain Scanner & Search Filters.


@lvqcl and tpijag, Thank you both soooo much for your help. biggrin.gif

Though written by foobar author, it is a separate component.

Playback statistics, hmm, it must have been in the bundle that the milkdrop component came in, I remember there being a few components there, but I thought they might depend on eachother..

Important to ignore whatever bundle you have and download from Foobar site.

I will keep that in mind for next time, but yea, I hardly ever download components anyways, I think it was a few years ago, that I tried a milkdrop component off the Foobar site, and I was unable get it working, so, like a year or so later I decided to look elsewhere, this one works fine though, and it's the only thing I really missed from my winamp days, so now Foobar is perfect imo tongue.gif no more components and on the off chance I do get one, it'll definitely be from the Foobar site.

Thanks again tpijag smile.gif
