    How to get
    Stable version:
    Become a beta tester:

    First run
    The initial screen will show you the indexed library tree. At the bottom of the list, you can access the Documents folder for folder & file name based browsing of uploaded content.
    The library content may take a few minutes to populate - foobar2000 may take a while to discover your entire library content on first run. Note that the library tree will contain items from both your iTunes-uploaded music library and the Documents folder.

    Having trouble using it?
    Check foobar2000 mobile usage tips thread for common problems and solutions:

    The Documents folder
    The Documents folder content can be uploaded from iTunes, under Apps / File Sharing.
    If you download content from UPnP media servers, it will be downloaded to your Documents folder.

    Why use Documents folder?
    The regular iTunes music library will only let you upload Apple-supported file formats.
    The Documents folder has no such restrictions and lets you upload any kind of files you wish to play on your device, say, full albums encoded to Opus, with external JPEG album art.

    Supported audio formats
    • Popular lossy formats:
      MP3, MP4/M4A, Musepack (MPC), Ogg Vorbis, Opus
    • Popular lossles formats:
      FLAC, WavPack (WV), Apple Lossless (ALAC)
    • Utility formats:
    • Module formats (yep we mean it):
      MOD, S3M, XM, IT and many more
    • Video game music formats (yep we really mean it):
      PSF, PSF2, QSF, USF, GSF
    • Archive formats:
      ZIP, 7-zip, RAR

    Most of the above formats are only accessible through the Documents folder, not through iTunes music library.

    Known issues

    • iTunes Match tracks not playable.
    • Due to iOS power management restrictions, long-running UPnP downloads or ReplayGain scans may cause iOS to kill our process for not going to sleep when asked to. Connect your device to AC power before performing long downloads.
