      The Foo is obviously from Foobar. Google translate says “fuyin” is “copy” in Chinese, which I guess could make sense since it’s a copy of foobar2000. It also says “fooyin” is “I’m sorry” in Somali, which is probably a coincidence because that makes no sense.

      EDIT: One of the screenshots in the README is in Chinese so yeah that’s probably it.

        Very close! Name is based on the Chinese 福音 (fúyīn) meaning good news, with foo coming from foobar as you correctly deduced.

    I tried it out. I like the idea of the fully customizable UI. I can’t seem to get it to import anything as a library and it constantly crashes after roughly 5-10 minutes, though. Am I missing something or doing something wrong, or is that the expected behavior at this point in development?

      That is not expected behavior, no. How did you install it? Through a package? Or did you build from source?

      There is currently problems with the way fooyin and fooyin-bin in the AUR are packaged which has been leading to crashes when trying to add tracks. I’m attempting to get that resolved.

        I found that all I needed to do to add a library was close the app and reopen after the first time opening the version built from source. Built myself a layout similar to the Obsidian preset. Really nice customizable player! I have two recommendations: have some way for the Library Filter widget to show individual tracks so you can add them to a playlist, and have some way to actually view and edit the Playback Queue. Other than that, this is a great player!

        Using an Ubuntu (22.04) based distro, I tried installing with the jammy .deb a couple times, which produced the constantly crashing result. I just built from source, which appears to have resolved the constant crashes, but I still can’t add a library.

          Thanks, that helps. I’ll be pushing a new release today which should resolve the crashes. I’ll look into the library problem also.

        I solved the issues yesterday by building from source, which solved the crashing issue (guessing a packaging issue with the .deb version is one problem) and then after one restart of the app I was able to add my library. Works fine now.

          If you’re using the Arch packages there’s an issue with the PKGBUILD. The fooyin-git package works correctly though. The issue has now been fixed.
