foobar2000 2.1.5

foobar2000 is a lightweight audio player with a clean and simplistic aspect, for Windows. Some of the basic features include full Unicode support, ReplayGain support and native support for several popular audio formats. The program has a minimalist interface, which you can customize according to how you want to organize and view your media library. As foobar2000 notes on its site, this is an "advanced" media player, meaning that it isn't as user-friendly as iTunes. In terms of audio quality, however, it is superior to the ubiquitous player. foobar2000 is developed by Peter Pawlowski, a former freelance contractor for Winamp.

foobar2000 2.1.5 changelog:
Removed gnudb from default online tagger settings, as gnudb now demands users to input their actual email addresses.
If you wish to use gnudb, you can configure it manually, but we strongly recommend against it.
Online tagger now defaults to which works once again.
Changed storage of freedb-compatible server list settings, to a text file in profile folder.
Reverted compiler to Visual Studio 2019, as current version of Visual Studio 2022 outputs AVX opcodes when explicitly configured not to, making foobar2000 crash on old PCs.
ReFacets added "last modified" column, fixed playlist interaction bugs.
Converter: Fail harder if "don't reset DSP between tracks" is on and one of files can't be converted - output past the point of failure wasn't valid anymore anyway.
Fixed WASAPI Exclusive timing glitches with exotic settings.
