foobar2000 Components

For foobar2000 v1.4 and newer

List older components

These are the recommended versions of my components. They use dynamic C runtime linking to reduce file size and to not consume FLS slots. Older components and other statically linked DLLs reserve fiber local storage slots and a program can only have 128 of them in use. Once the limit is reached new DLLs can't be loaded and random functions stop working.

WASAPI shared output v0.6.4Shared mode WASAPI output for Vista and newer Windows versions. This component tries to provide smoother volume adjustment and seek/pause/stop transitions than existing outputs.
  • 0.6.4 (2019-06-22): Fixed noise issue during channel count change when automatic resampling was active
  • 0.6.3a (2019-06-17): Version 0.6.2 introduced glitches when buffer refill events were signalled too early. Restored the retry logic for most parts to match v0.6.1
  • 0.6.3 (2019-06-17): Fixed fade-in missing when initial playback didn't start from the beginning of a track
  • 0.6.2 (2019-06-15): Fixed audio glitches when switching tracks. Changed playback thread not to abort so easily on buffering problems. Increased the fade duration to 50 ms to improve interpolation smoothness
  • 0.6.1 (2019-04-07): Reverted the 0.6 buffering change. Default device change mid-playback will now resample and convert the already buffered samples to new target format. The transition isn't as smooth as with 0.6 but better than in prior versions. Fixed a glitch when seeking while paused
  • 0.6 (2019-03-31): Buffer is no longer flushed when using the default device and the device changes mid-playback. Added a short fade-in after default device change
  • 0.5.8 (2019-03-21): Improved compatibility with audio drivers that signal events incorrectly
  • 0.5.7 (2019-03-14): Mixer setting report now includes channel mask configuration
  • 0.5.6 (2019-03-09): The output device was incorrectly reinitialized when default changed even when not using default output
  • 0.5.5 (2019-03-09): Made default output notice changes and automatically switch to new device
  • 0.5.4 (2019-02-15): Hopefully fixed playback thread init failure related crashing
  • 0.5.3 (2019-01-31): Added COM library initialization to device enumerator
  • 0.5.2 (2018-10-29): Fixed crash on device close
  • 0.5.1 (2018-10-27): Volume adjustment was incorrectly delayed during initial playback start
  • 0.5 (2018-10-18): Fixed glitching with sub 100 ms output buffers, the component incorrectly played silence when its buffer went empty. Eliminated need for Sleep() which should make the component immune to timer resolution fluctuations
  • 0.4.1 (2018-10-15): Fixed device identification by GUID
  • 0.4 (2018-10-13): Improved error handling
  • 0.3 (2018-10-06): Fixed inability to start playback in paused state. Made volume adjustment smoother. Further reduced glitching with seeking. Attempts to reinitialize output device on error
  • 0.2 (2018-09-30): First public version
