A good app to play music

Thanks to the built-in utilities, you can easily transcode music from one format to another, record audio from a microphone or other sound device, edit the tags of MP3, OGG, WMA files, as well as a group to rename or sort music files.

It is an application that I still use today. It has everything I used to have to do in several programs.

Loading 5,000 files, removing tags from them or modifying them, converting them to another format, all this for it is not a problem. And on top of that, during such operations it uses all the processors so the application is extremely fast.

Love it :)

I'll give it the benefit of the doubt - and use it.

I get the same notification from AVG...I am not going to download any more versions until it can be determined that it is free of malware/viruses/trojans etc.

This file seems to have been infected with a trojan: version "foobar2000 1.3.12".
Both the file from BN and also directly from the author's download page give the same results from Avira AV when running the installer .exe file: Detection: TR/AD.NsisInject.8f0f0c (Cloud). Does NOT seem to be a "false positive" detection. This occurs immediately after double-clicking the .exe installer, before any further option choices would appear, such as allowing installation of Google Chrome, or other 3rd-party money generating add-on software. The software is very useful, except for the above noted problem.

Pros: I use AIMP player, it's a multifunctional audio center. Easy to use
I can share the link where you can download https://www.softportal.com/software-5099-aimp.html

Cons:

Bottom Line: Thanks to the built-in utilities, you can easily transcode music from one format to another, record audio from a microphone or other sound device, edit the tags of MP3, OGG, WMA files, as well as a group to rename or sort music files.

Pros: I have been using this software for about 1 year. Honestly, it's one of the best software I've ever used. Ease of use, fast and good customer care is what I like best here. https://krunkerio.io

Cons: Maybe there's only one thing I don't like, it's not updated as much as I expected, hope you guys will improve more.

Bottom Line: I definitely give it five stars because it deserves it.

Superb player - Personally I prefer AIMP mainly for the skins but foobar is one of the best.

Antichrist reviewed v1.3.7 Beta 1 on Dec 23, 2014

I love foobar2000 but it really needs to come with at least an option of skins upon install like WinAmp does. If you have been driven away by its sparse look and gave up on it here's a skin I'd recommend which will most likely make you appreciate the player:

I also dig this for addon for adding lyrics to files:

if you care MORE about high-quality music player instead of fancy moving themes that waste CPU cycles, then choose foobar2000

foobar2000 for audio player + another program for video player is the way to go!

foobar2000 is very light-weight and doesn't load up tons of junk just to play music
