Why need the Foobar2000 alternative?

Foobar2000 is a free audio player which can natively support to play many audio formats, like MP3, MP4, AAC, CD Audio, WMA, Vorbis, Opus, FLAC, WavPack, WAV, AIFF, Musepack, Speex, AU, SND, etc. If you only have the need to play some audio file on Windows, Foobar2000 is a good choice, but freeware always has some limitations, Foobar200 is no exception. For example:

  1. You can not run Foobar2000 on Mac although Foobar2000 gets the free preview for iOS and Android released.
  2. Foobar2000 natively supports many audio formats, but not all audio formats are supported unless the additional components are installed, like TTA, Monkey's Audio, MOD, SPC, AC3, DTS, AMR, TAK, etc
  3. If you want to use Foobar2000 to convert the audio file to another audio format you need to install the corresponding converter component.
  4. No built-in help service

For example: users experience high system resource usage; Seeking is so slow whey playing MP3 files or some of MP3 files can not be played normally; Some importing files can not be seen by Media Library; If Foobar2000 is on the full screen and then opens other Apps. The other Apps can not be seen unless you minimize Foobar2000. There are more others like these.
