Save current Track info to txt
Hello
I'm pretty new to Foobar and I'm pretty buffed how modable a music player can be.
My player is still far from perfection and there is still a long way to go.

First of all my current task is to create a function to save the current playing song and Artist to a text file.
Is there any plugin for this or is it even possible to create textfiles with foobar?

The reason behind this is that I mostly listen to internet radio streams and I want to note the songs I liked.
I kept noting them myself with notepad and VLC which I missused as music player the last 3 years but a function like that would increase my playervalue by a huge chunk.

I would love it if somebody of you guys could lead me to the right direction.

The component Now Playing Simple may be what you are looking for.

Its output is based on foobar2000's Title Formatting and thus highly configurable.

The player's console has a logging function as well but it can not be configured.
This is HA. Not the Jerry Springer Show.
