Great software, but I hope they fix the replay gain or at least test it for code integrity in a beta version. Any vorbis file I run replay gain on using Foobar is not recognised in my external media player and android boxes I tested on. The files refuses to play let alone be detected. Strange issue, could it be the meta tags screwing them up causing incompatibilities? They play okay on the computer using Media Player Home Cinema.

Foobar is excellent software, but don't use the replaygain option on your files. It screws up vorbis files making them unplayable on TV media players and has zero effect on the db level of aac/mp4a files, despite the operation stating done. You scan for gain update the tag, but it is the metadata tag which messes up the playback okay on a PC but screwed for a media player attached to your TV.
