What is this?

This pack includes every natively supported free encoder binary for use with the Converter foobar2000 component. The binaries are conveniently installed into a subfolder of the foobar2000 installation folder.
Current versions of foobar2000 will automatically recognize these encoders and no longer ask you for encoder binary location.

Included encoders:

  • FLAC
  • Ogg Vorbis
  • Opus
  • Musepack
  • WavPack
  • AAC + Apple Lossless (qaac) - requires iTunes to be installed (read more...)
  • AAC (fhgaacenc) - requires Winamp to be installed (read more...)
  • Apple Lossless (refalac)
  • MP3 (LAME)
Please note that this pack includes only encoders that we are legally allowed to distribute; that excludes AAC encoders (included AAC encoders require external applications providing actual encoding functionality).
