Try to use %ABR instead of %br.

Thanks for your hint to use %ABR instead of %br. But it doesn't work for me.
It seems to be a problem with foobar 0.9, because i tested the configuration
with Winamp 5.2 and foobar 0.83 and it works fine.

It would be nice to have mp3 illustrating this problem, can you contact me and send it or provide a link where I can get it?

I need the file itself.

Hi Serge!

I thought i have attached the file yesterday, but i try it again.

Forum has a limit for attach size (1Mb), so go to the contacts page on AMIP site and send it by e-mail or some IM messenger.

I've checked your file and AMIP provides valid bitrate results for it, the same as foobar shows in song info dialog and the same that console Tag util shows.

Not sure what is the problem, check that you are using latest 0.9 foobar version and latest AMIP version.

If the problem still remains, please provide your plugin.ini file from foobar components directory.

Hi Serge!

I deinstalled foobar 0.9 and AMIP complete and installed it fully from the scratch and

IT WORKS!!! *smile*

I want to say Thank you for your help! And keep AMIP the fantastic program it is!

There seems to be another problem left.

When i check the %br against the %ABR there is a little difference.
If %ABR >= 192 the %br shows the same value, but if %ABR < 192 the %br always shows 192 for me.




Posted by: Serge Apr 8 2006, 07:56 PM

%ABR is calculated by EncSpot library and may be different from %br reported by player or by id3lib. I can't do anything about it.

It was actually a bug in AMIP for fb2k-09, fixed in 2006-04-10 beta version:
* fb2k-0.9: %br and %sr were retrieved from the wrong playlist item (not currently playing)
* fb2k-0.9: %ver now returns only number (0.9 instead of foobar2000 v0.9), to get player name use %player
