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.

Hm... I thought that it goes like this:
1. foobar sends command to ffmpeg to simply create PCM wav on my HDD
2. ffmpeg decodes audio, creates wav and lets foobar open it (sends output file name and path to foobar)
3. foobar simply plays wav from my HDD - like every other file - eg 6ch FLAC from DVD-A.
4. this implies that file (to be exact - decoded bitstream with audio) goes through consecutive chain of DSPs - like every other file - eg 6ch FLAC from DVD-A.
5. this implies that before Playback Rate Shift DSP is used, decoded audio should be 2ch bistream (downmixed from 5.1)...

Then why I have to downmix to 2ch before wav is opened in foobar? Or maybe I am wrong and something works differently when ffmpeg or foo_input_exe is used?
