song bookmarks

How about "bookmarks" for songs? That save exact song + time in song.

I have several ~2-hour mixes. I can never find where was that my favorite moment/song in them...

Other thing is that sometimes I want to show some song to my friend. It would be cool if I could bookmark it so I dont forget :)

Bookmarks could be organized as "global" with totally favorite songs and bookrmaks sorted per-song with best fragments bookmarked.

My foo_bookmark component can bookmark exact moments in songs.  The UI doesn't have the sorting feature, but the bookmarks are saved to a text file, so you could manually edit it and sort it to your preference.

Opening files (current time or not) from bookmark doesn't seem to work. The file is added to the playlist but when trying to play, I get:
Code: [Select]
ERROR (CORE) : error opening file for playback :
INFO (CORE) : location: "E:\music\Adam Green - Friends Of Mine\01. Bluebirds.mp3" (0)

(Opening the same file when it is added to the playlist from the album list or other standard ways is ok.)

Works fine for audio streaming.
Maybe it's because I'm using foobar2000 v0.8 beta 3 (unicode).

Cheers.

I like this one! 

Two wishs:
1. When select a bookmark, simply jump to the playlist and play it, instead of adding to the current playlist.(Option)
2. When switch from one playlist to another, automatically remember the last song in previous playlist. (Option) When I listen to a playlist, occasionally I jump to try some other files, then I want to return back to the playlist and continue from the last position.

Can you try it out with Foobar 0.7x and see if it works for you? 

I haven't even download any of the Foobar 0.8 betas yet, so I have no idea if it is compatable with 0.8.

Export the whole bookmark list as a Cue sheet, or maybe just the current selections? 

I haven't used Cue sheets the often, but from what I see here, I'm not sure how it would work.  Would you current time bookmark a single file, containing multiple individual songs?

So for example, create a bookmark for each song, then select them in the foo_bookmark dialog and export that list?


Way back when I was actively developing this component, I planned on making it available as a service, or at least provide the source code for making/decoding the timestamp in the bookmark entry.  If there is enough interest, I could look into actually implementing the service interface.

I was directed to this thread by some helpful people. It's quite an old thread but i guess the author might still be using FB2k and therefore reading this forum.

I was also looking for a way to save bookmarks to cue file. In my instance i would be listening to a big file , maybe a radio mix etc. Create bookmarks with your plugin etc and at the end of the long mix...hopefully save the whole list of bookmarks to a cue file or only the portions of it that pertain to the mix. (if thats possible).

There would be several bookmarks each corresponding to where one thinks a track changes over to a next one. So at the end of the mix, a way to save those bookmarks to a cue file would be great.


TO create a cue file there needs to be a way to find out from each bookmark what the exact time is. Of course one must be creating bookmarks with the exact time but your plugin does this already.

Then create a cue file of the following format.

Code: [Select]
PERFORMER "can get this from the Artist tag"
TITLE "can get this form the name tag"
FILE "somefile.mp3" MP3

TRACK 01 AUDIO
 PERFORMER "Artist 01"
 TITLE "Track 01"
  INDEX 01 00:00:00
TRACK 02 AUDIO
 PERFORMER "Artist 02"
 TITLE "Track 02"
  INDEX 01 05:34:55 <-----comes from 1st bookmark (or from selected grp)
TRACK 03 AUDIO
 PERFORMER "Artist 03"
 TITLE "Track 03"
  INDEX 01 10:22:57 <-----comes from 2nd bookmark (or from selected grp)
TRACK 04 AUDIO
 PERFORMER "Artist 04"
 TITLE "Track 04"
  INDEX 01 15:20:62 <-----comes from 3rd bookmark (or from selected grp)

....and so on


Artist 01, name 01 ...etc to be filled in literally as they would need to be added manually after the cue file is done.
