hi guys

I have been using with great pleasure for a few months now musibee

I wanted to know if there was a way to open the rar, zip and 7zip files?

I'll explain myself better:

I'm talking about the integrated option for both foobar and xmplay.
basically if I have an archive containing music files I would like to open it with musicbee directly by clicking with the right button (so that all the files in the archive are added all style playlists on musicbee)

thanks

I would also like to request support to read from ZIP files, only reading no writing so the files don't change.
This way I can organize my files better and put one album into a single zip file.
I only need zip file support, rar/7z especially with solid option wouldn't be any good for this.
Memory usage is not a concern even with flac files, extracting a full track or even the full album to memory should not be an issue with the amount of memory PCs have nowadays.

+1 I agree with whocares0101. Foobar support it and usage of full album is quick and  easy. Jyst like cbz for jpg, it is not about compression but to have just one file well organized and quickly transferable.

Unless you are dealing in WAV, music files are already compressed. Not sure why anyone would want to deal with the overhead of handling zips.

The "well organized and quickly transferable" aspect can be achieved by using folders.
