Best FLAC player for PC? - Page 5

post #61 of 213
Actually sounds quite nice, but I'm not finding an English language Readme file, and the online info is less than useful. Is there some way of setting preference, output, etc. on this Aplayer program?

Sorry, I thoght there is an english readme (.

You can edit APlayer.ini file using notepad. Set English=1 and save the file. Than you'll have an English iterface. See the last string below.

Also I can reccomend to translate readme.txt using web transators.

 

After I have found Apleer, I can't listen Foobar!

I forgot... Right click on the player window and you'll have some menus.

Thanks; got it. More I listen to it, the more I like this Aplayer program. Is there some way of running it with WASAPI? Can't seem to find it in the right-click menus.

+1 for foobar.  not sure if i missed it, but didn't see mention of wasapi output plugins available for it.  

tried a couple and they can be slightly quirky, but worth the effort i'd say

You can get a plug in for Windows Media Player which will allow you to play FLAC files through it.

I don't know where to purchase it but you can download it free through BitTorrent here: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/3959874/FLAC_CODEC_FOR_WINDOWS_MEDIA_PLAYER_._rar_._andtr666666_...

 WASAPI output plugin is out_maiko.dll.   Extract it to a root player folder  from add_plugins.zip in EXTRAS folder.

You might want to look into dBPoweramp or even Winamp as well. Both are pretty popular, both have free and paid versions.


Yar I have J-River and well I never use it... FooBar just works so great!

 

I do have one question what do I need to get FooBar to work with a DAC... I hear people say you need the Wasapi plug in and well I have it, so once you have the plugin how do you activate it and allow it to transfer the bits to the dac e.e

Go to "Preferences / Output" and select whatever Wasapi mode you want ("event" or "push") on the "Device" option.

I have it set to Out Wasapi Mode Push, and there is sound... what exactly is Waspai doing when it does that... I do not have a DAC as of yet, but I ofc plan to use an O2 dac, how would I get the O2 to work with FooBar...

Great, thanks. Seems to work fine. Very much enjoying this quirky little APlayer. Has a very rich bass quality, lots of detail.

all wasapi does is make it difficult to pause your music and watch a youtube video. The windows mixer is bit perfect. There is no need for wasapi.
