Two beta versions have been released over the weekend for foobar2000 1.2.3, a very short time apart. None of them introduces new features but they focus instead on fixing up known issues and bring to the table a few changes.
The latest version of the audio player features updated FFmpeg code to 1.1.1. In order to avoid collision with other software the FFmpeg DLLs now use unique names.
Also on the list of changes is an improvement regarding “Downmix 5.1 to stereo” DSP, which now accepts more different channel masks. Furthermore, the problematic Media Library folder monitoring tweaks from version 1.2 have been reverted.
The Vorbis and AAC bad channel interleaving regression has been corrected in the second beta release for the application.
foobar2000 is available for download from this link; during installation you can choose to make it portable.
