Some of the basic features include full Unicode support, Replay Gain support and native support for several popular audio formats. It doesn’t mess with fancy buttons or bright colors, instead preferring a utilitarian, straightforward user interface to let the music speak on behalf of itself. Though foobar2000 comes standard with a variety of handy features, you can increase its functionality by adding components to it. Here is an instruction to tell you how to add components to Foobar2000.



1. Download the component you have an interest in adding to foobar2000. Save it to a place you prefer.

2. Extract the contents of the downloaded file.
