foobar2000 is an advanced freeware audio player for the Windows platform. Some of the basic features include full unicode support, ReplayGain support and native support for several popular audio formats.


Platforms

foobar2000 has been written specifically for the Windows platform, and there are no plans to port it to any others. However, although not officially supported, it is known to run on Linux and Mac OS X through Wine and WineBottler, respectively.

Features

  • Powerful open component architecture allowing third-party developers to extend functionality of the player, including the ability to fully replace the user interface.
  • Full Unicode support: File names, user interface, tagging, etc.
  • ReplayGain support: Both playback and writing ReplayGain information to file tags.
  • Gapless playback.
  • Advanced tagging capabilities - through built-in Properties dialog and various optional tagging-related components.
  • Built-in Media Library functionality.
    • Intuitive query syntax for searching the Media Library.
    • Autoplaylist support: Generate dynamically updating playlists based on queries.
  • Customizable keyboard shortcuts.
  • Support for transcoding all supported audio formats using the Converter component (requires external command-line encoder executables for different output formats).
  • Secure CD ripping.
  • Streaming support.
  • Efficient handling of large playlists.
  • User interface with simple configuration to create even complex layouts quickly and easily.
  • Highly customizable display of track information using title formatting scripts.

Supported audio formats

Natively supported ("out-of-the-box"):

Supported through optional components:

In addition, foobar2000 can also play audio files within ZIP and RAR archives (typically compressed) directly, i.e. without requiring the user to extract the files first. More archive formats are supported via additional components: LHA/LZH, 7-Zip, JMA
