FooBar has Very nice sound quality even without any plug-ins. One thing that bothers me about it however is the inability to reduce the player to a small unobtrusive size. I did find a plug-in that is supposed to address this issue Advanced Controls (foo_advancedcontrols) http://fb2k.org/section.php?section=8 Control all the playback functions of FooBar2000 from icons in the Taskbar Notification Area (that is - the tray) But I do not know how to implement it. I extracted the files but there is no info on what to do with them. Any help will be appreciated. I would prefer a small console type setup to something residing on the task-bar so if anyone knows how I get this I would be grateful. I also am not terribly impressed with the programs documentation. Again, if anyone knows of a good documentation source I would appreciate if they could let me know about it.
