Is there any chance of expanding the Winamp plugin to include foobar2000? There is already a remote plugin for foobar (with source included) if that simplifies things. About the only thing it doesn't support is volume control.

foobar2000 is at:
http://foobar2000.hydrogenaudio.org

Thanks!
Rick.

Just to update. I found ways to do all the control I wanted through foobar itself (with the help of a multimedia keyboard).

Thanks anyway!
Rick.

I just downloaded Foobar2K and I have to say I like it a lot. It's not as pretty as winamp, but it uses MUCH fewer resources (3 times less), and loads MUCH faster. I'd like to add my vote for Winamp Plugin to support Foobar2000.

Glad to see others like foobar too! Smile

One thing is that version 0.7 is currently in beta and the SDK changed in this version. This means plugins pre0.7 will not work with 0.7 so it may be best to wait until 0.7 is final.

If it helps, I am a programmer and have played with the foobar SDK so I would be willing to write the foobar plugin to work with TLB as long as I know the specifications.

Take a look at some of the third-party components for foobar at http://fb2k-plugins.hydrogenaudio.org/General.html. For instance "foo_remote"
Kind regards

great thanks! but there are two more things:
1. shuffle + repeat toggle doesn't work
2. an option is missing that says: "next"-button does: next or random - there is a difference in foobar2000, hope you can add that

and title formatting is wrong:
it shows album - title instead of artist - title

look:

FYI foobar2000 released 0.7 RC1 earlier today (saturday, 23 august 2003) and i'm looking forward for the updated plugin so i can have the optimal use of TLB. just installed TLB today and the reason i chose this nice utility, was because of the foobar2000 control options Smile it is possible to control foobar2000 with global keys, but i'm lazy, and i like using the mouse instead of using the keyboard..
i feel that TLB is the link i missed between my most appreciated programs in everyday use, StyleXP and foobar2000. thank you for such a great program!

Please test this plugin for foobar2000 v.0.7. Copy it into foobar2000 folder. All must be fine but eject does not working yet. I've asked how to make this on foobar2000.org and waiting for answer Wink

I unistalled Foobar 0.6, installed 0.7, ran foo_tlbRC.exe, then copied the dll from your last post into my Foobar directory, but it doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong?

it's working here fine (and there's already answer to your question yuri Wink )

shapeshifter, you have to copy it into 'components' subfolder

as for yuri:

it would be nice to:

- be able to control the scrolling title formatting
- be able to format the info box (multilined, for example bold font for fileds, normal for their names etc)
- add special actions to alt/ctrl/shift clicking (and possibly even middle button) media plugin's buttons

more about the last one:

in foobar2k 0.7, thre's for example plugin called playlist hooper, which can skip to next / previus album / artist / directory in the playlist, which is extremely useful. so it would be nice to assign for example middle button mouse click on next / previous buttons to perform those actions. it could be done by

1) adding config window to foobar remote plugin with editboxes / listedits to select menu item to perform (using that menu_manager::run_command('string' ) ; )
or 2) adding config window to foobar tlb plugin or directly to media plugin to select keyboard shortcuts or windows messages to send to foobar. it could be list with 'add' button, which would open dialog box where you could select type of the action (shortcut / message), it's name, it's parameters (depending on type), assign it to media player action (radiogroup of left / middle click, checkkbox grup with modifiers - ctrl / alt / shift, listbox with media plugin's button). that list would show action's name and its assigned media player action to easy orientation

i know it's a lot of work but it would be really great! what do you think?
