Hello. I downloaded Jimi Hendrix 51st Anniversary box set from your site, I appreciate that. It says that the files are .shn. What media player will play .shn files? I tried Quicktime, Realplayer, Windows Media Player, and Foobar. I appreciate you.

I'm working off a pc these days (so ignore my comments if you are on a mac). Winamp is cool, but I have been using foobar which I prefer usually. Foobar doesn't have a visualizer, but it takes less resources (CP). I still fire up winamp from time to time when I want the cool visuals.

Here's the foobar link

You can get the foobar shn decoder plugin here:
http://foosion.foobar2000.org/0.9/
Download the shorten decoder, unzip it, then drop foo_input_shorten.dll into the components folder of foobar2000 (probably C:\ > Program Files > Foobar2000 > Components)

Anyone know another place to download the foobar shn decoder plugin?
I went to http://foosion.foobar2000.org/0.9/


You can get the foobar shn decoder plugin here:
http://foosion.foobar2000.org/0.9/ to download the shorten decoder but the link for the shorten decoder is no longer there.

thanks

It's still there. At the top right hand corner of the page, look under download, then click "component archive" (or right click, save as).
