You can set this up in foobar preferences without any bother: On "Shell Integration": tick "Folder context menus" and you see "Play in foobar" in the folder context menu. Tick "Register supported file formats on startup" and all the filetypes that foobar supports will show "Play in foobar" in file context menu. If you only want specific filetypes, untick the "Register...." box, click on "Manage filetype associations" and then tick the selected filetypes you want.

Thanks for pointing that out!!
It only makes sense to have it in the preferences. I just couldn't figure out why so many people were missing that feature.
I don't use foobar so all I could suggest was a generic approach.

Some media players hold on to file associations very aggressively, so if you're using several players it might seem like your settings in sensible players like foobar don't work. Also, if you use shark007 codec's recommended settings, WMP gets all the associations; it might be keeping them there until you go in and untick that box. (not sure about that 'cause WMP is gathering dust in my setup.)
