    Open single audio files and still use Foobar for albums


    Hopefully this will make sense once I try to explain it.

    I have a folder of about 3000 mp3s that I have collected over the years.

    I have Foobar2000 installed and am using that as my main music player and it's working really great and I'm happy with it. However, can I install an audio player to just open these single mp3 files without messing up what Foobar2000 is doing?

    For example, I would like to double click on an mp3 and have it open up as a single instance in an audio player rather than having to dig through this folder in Foobar2000.

    I'm not keen on using Windows Media Player for privacy reasons. I'm sure there's something lightweight out there that I can use, right?

    Hopefully this all makes sense.

    :)

    Simply, HOW? I got the DDS plugin but the POS wont open DDS files still. Can someone give me a step-by-step rundown of how to install the DDS plugin for gimp so I know if I'm missing something?

    Groove Shows Unknown Artist & Unknown Album


    I solved it by doing the following! I'm not sure which step cracked the problem.


    1. Set indexing to index the content of my music files by right clicking on the top level folder, setting the option and applying to all files and sub-folders
    2. Rebuilt the index via the Control Panel Indexing options
    3. Deleted the folders watched in Groove
    4. Deleted the Groove database at C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.ZuneMusic_<random>\LocalState\Database
    5. Started Groove
    6. Reassigned the folders to watch

    All songs now appear with the right artist & album but some album art was missing in Groove and Media Player despite being displayed correctly in iTunes. I manually updated the missing album art in Media Player and Groove then synchronised to match the Media Player album art.

  4. Open single audio files and still use Foobar for albums

    No sound while playing audio and video files.

    Hi,

    I appreciate if you could answer to a few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • Which is the application that you are using to play the files?
    • Did you try the same on a different player?
    • Did you perform any troubleshooting steps?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to check if the volume is set low or in mute state in Volume Mixer.

    • Right click on sound icon.
    • Open Volume Mixer check for the application that you are playing the files with and increase the volume and check.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to run “Playing audio” troubleshooter to diagnose and fix the issue.

    Follow these Steps to run Playing Audio Troubleshooter in Windows 10.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Playing audio.

    Thank you.
