Overrated software.
Why is this program hyped to hell and back?
Despite all the bloat it comes with, it's completely worthless without third party addons.
It's said to be super customizable but the vanilla options are all pretty bad and to get it to an acceptable state you have to spend a ton of time changing every little thing around, and use yet even more third party addons.
In the end it doesn't play music any better than any other media player except maybe WMP. But that doesn't count.

Post other overrated software.

Also all the decent plugins are for outdated versions of foobar

Because it just works and is highly customizable.

i like it because it's extremely minimal and polished and fast, even with enormous music collections

plus if there's some obscure music related thing you want to do usually foobar is the first to get a plugin for it

Actually installed foobar today. After about an hour trying to figure out how to install a theme because what you get when you first open it up is horrible I went on too spend another hour learning how to customize it.

In the end I installed musicbee. Mfw it looked almost exactly like what I had just spent hours trying to setup in foobar. Will be uninstalling foobar.

I get the appeal of foobar, but it's straight up ricer porn.

It's basically the opposite of ricer porn. It's lightweight because it doesn't come with a bunch of unnecessary bloat to make it look good. It's a music player. It plays music.

foobar is the only audio player I know that can do the following:

it really sucks when I switch to linux and don't have an audio player that can do what foobar can

Just because it has more features doesn't mean it's bloated.

>>52899689
It actually fucking sucks.
Due to deadbeef devs trying to make it a foobar copy in terms of extensibility the UI is broken

From my experience the only gtk music player that doesn't suck donkey balls is exaile. It's barebones, but at least it's not broken

how does deadbeef try to copy foobar? the only thing that's really similar is plugin support. and how is the UI broken?

I switched to Winyl a few months ago. Like other anons already pointed out, you have to install too much shit to customize foobar2000's appearance and layout, and half the most commonly used plugins are severely outdated. Some even present compatibility issues.

Winyl's layout is much more accessible to boot, but you don't have any plugin support like you do with fb2k. It already supports all the common lossy and lossless formats out of the box, so I don't mind not being able to add additional format support.

As for bloat, Winyl uses less memory than fb2k. Then again, it's just an audio player, not also a mass encoding tool, CD authoring suite, etc. like fb2k wants to be.
>>
>>52899898
that is exactly what bloat means.
features you are not using is bloat.
I personally think that a lot of the tools are fine, but ideally, ripping music, tagging music and playing music should be 3 applications.

Once upon a time I invested a bit into how I should organize my music collection. Classical, Jazz, Rock, Metal, and Soundtracks.

My only option at that time was foobar because:
1) Multi-tag supported filter-based playlists (filter manually configurable)
2) Ratings (plus global hotkey for fast rating outside foobar)
3) Extensive search functions
4) Wavebar
5) ???
6) Playlists

Good looking interface is a plus. Wouldn't care even if it looked like Win95.

I didn't find any other program that could fulfill my needs. This is why I still use windows. Literally the only program I need, else I would have switched completely to linux otherwise.

tl;dr I think foobar deserves the hype.

I thought this was going to be a vim thread

>>52903949
that's pretty sad. foobar works fine in wine though.

Musicbee all the way.
Library organization and complex tagging operations are a breeze, instant search and library update implemented, natively WRITES smartgain tags, interface easily customizable with tons of options, nice skins, easily customizable theater modes, etc. etc.
