This component allows you to comfortably play or convert any audio format with a standalone command-line decoder available, including various exotic formats that do not have native foobar2000 decoder components.
Check the documentation link below for more details.

Have fun.

This job would be great if it wasn't for the users.

I'm not sure weather this issue is caused by foo_input_exe or foo_dsp_effect so I post it in both threads, maybe authors will find what can be wrong.
My DSP chain looks like this: Skip Silence - > convert 5.1 to stereo -> convert mono to stereo -> playback rate shift. Playback Rate Shift requires 2ch signal. So used DSP effects provide such signal.
When I play 6ch FLAC encoded from DVD-A everything works OK. Signal is downmixed and I can use PRS actively or just unused, but present in chain. But when I play audio from video files and I use foo_input_exe to wrap signal decompressed by FFMPEG.exe from that files, then 6ch audio decoded from .VOB file generates error: "Unrecoverable playback error: Illegal number of channels". It means that Playback Rate Shift gets 6ch audio instead of 2ch - like "convert 5.1 to stereo" wasn't working or something like this... Why? What can I do to avoid this error in such playback configuration?
