Looks amazingly retro with Plasma's Win9x Application Style.

const_void OP ,

Wow, it really does. The good old days are back!

Grangle1 ,

I tried it out. I like the idea of the fully customizable UI. I can't seem to get it to import anything as a library and it constantly crashes after roughly 5-10 minutes, though. Am I missing something or doing something wrong, or is that the expected behavior at this point in development?

ludouzi ,

That is not expected behavior, no. How did you install it? Through a package? Or did you build from source?

There is currently problems with the way fooyin and fooyin-bin in the AUR are packaged which has been leading to crashes when trying to add tracks. I'm attempting to get that resolved.

Grangle1 ,

Using an Ubuntu (22.04) based distro, I tried installing with the jammy .deb a couple times, which produced the constantly crashing result. I just built from source, which appears to have resolved the constant crashes, but I still can't add a library.

ludouzi ,

Thanks, that helps. I'll be pushing a new release today which should resolve the crashes. I'll look into the library problem also.

Grangle1 ,

I found that all I needed to do to add a library was close the app and reopen after the first time opening the version built from source. Built myself a layout similar to the Obsidian preset. Really nice customizable player! I have two recommendations: have some way for the Library Filter widget to show individual tracks so you can add them to a playlist, and have some way to actually view and edit the Playback Queue. Other than that, this is a great player!

const_void OP ,

Hmm, I'm not seeing either of those issues. I have a 1.5TB library imported and have listened for many hours straight without a crash. Version 0.4.2 was just released today. Maybe give that a shot. https://github.com/ludouzi/fooyin/releases/tag/v0.4.2

Grangle1 ,

I solved the issues yesterday by building from source, which solved the crashing issue (guessing a packaging issue with the .deb version is one problem) and then after one restart of the app I was able to add my library. Works fine now.

const_void OP , (edited )

If you're using the Arch packages there's an issue with the PKGBUILD. The fooyin-git package works correctly though. The issue has now been fixed.

mox ,

Neat. Where does the name come from? What does it mean?

leopold ,

The Foo is obviously from Foobar. Google translate says "fuyin" is "copy" in Chinese, which I guess could make sense since it's a copy of foobar2000. It also says "fooyin" is "I'm sorry" in Somali, which is probably a coincidence because that makes no sense.

EDIT: One of the screenshots in the README is in Chinese so yeah that's probably it.

ludouzi ,

Very close! Name is based on the Chinese 福音 (fúyīn) meaning good news, with foo coming from foobar as you correctly deduced.
