Performs binary comparison between two sets of tracks and reports differences.

This is useful to verify whether different files – typically lossless files – contain exactly the same audio data. The component compares only decoded audio data, presence of tags does not affect the results.

Notes[edit]

    This component is obsolete in foobar2000 v2.0 and newer, the functionality is available out of the box.

Usage[edit]

Add two groups of tracks to compare one after another in a playlist, select them and choose "Utilities > Bit-compare tracks..." from the context menu.
