Make everyone type "I will not complain about deleted tracks", in order to activate the option.


Good idea. My other solution was to make that a registry key that you have to set manually...

One simple question: How do i get the settings window.
I want to choose another skin and there is no readme file in the download.

There is a clear configuration option in the tray right click popup and there is a configuration option in foobar preferences. Did you miss both?

Hi
I use foobar v0.9.6.2 and advancedcontrols v06 won't work...
How can I get an older version compatible with foobar v09?

Most older versions aren't available anymore, apart from a very very old version (2006), in English only, and very likely buggy.
Your best guess is to update Foobar2000.

If you want to use the old version, you're doing it at your own risks. Please don't report bugs or ask for support about them from either Foobar2000 devs or myself. This old version can be downloaded from http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/old/wac...-0.5.1.4-en.zip and may crash Foobar2000.

Regards.

Version 0.6.7 is now available, fixing a click offset issue on Windows 7, when the taskbar is double-height but the notification area still has a single row of icons.

The old 3rd-party components repository seems to be down, we just asked for an access to the official 3rd-party components page (to be able to use auto-update too).

While we are waiting for an answer, the new version can be downloaded from our website at

Thanks mate, however the offset is still unadjusted when the taskbar is aligned vertically and unfortunately having the taskbar set vetically is my preference since I have a 16:9 screen. I always have to aim half an task icon lower.. Would be glad if this could be fixed.
thanks
All tracks accurately ripped

Still no answers about the official 3rd-party components page. Will try to PM someone else...

Yes, I did find it, but the only choise I have for the skin is [built-in]

Is it possible you didn't unzip the package correctly?

Please install the latest Foobar2000 (v1.1.7) and use the Preferences/Components - Install button to install foo_AdvancedControls. Make sure you re-download the foo_advancedcontrols package to have the latest version - http://www.niversoft.com/downloads/foo_AdvancedControls.zip

Just to let you know that I renamed the package to help installation.
The Foobar2000 component install dialog filters zip files beginning by foo_*, so I made sure the package matched the pattern.

So AdvancedControls-foo.zip becomes foo_AdvancedControls.zip

Don't worry, the old links still works and simply redirects to the new package. DLL name didn't change.

Hey niver,

Great plugin you have there!

May I ask for a very small modification of the plugin for foobar2000?
Here's the deal:

When hovering the mouse over the tray controls a tooltip pops up with info about artist and track. Everything is fine as long as there is a valid artist tag in the currently playing mp3. When this tag is missing, then there is a question mark insted, e.g. "? - African Man" or "? - Hally & Kongo Band - African Man". This is because you hardcoded a bit inappropriate template for the tray tooltip - "%artist% - %title%". If you can just put sqare brackets around the artist metadata and the dash everything would be just fine: "[%artist% - ]%title%". The sqare brackets make foobar2000 ignore emty tags so no question mark would appear. The %title% metatag automatically assumes the filename string if the title tag is empty, so no need to surround %title% with square brackets.

Or, you can simply make this template user editable in the options

Thans for the time.


P.S.

I think the option "Volume when streaming source" doesnot work and cannot be set - foobar2000 1.1.8, Adv.controls 0.6.7.2, Win XP & Win 7

Hi. Thanks for the report.

Both issues are fixed in v0.6.7.3, which is now available.

As a sidenote, I tried three months ago to contact the Powers That Be to put this component on the official list. So far, no answer, not even a "no". So, for now, I give up, unless one of my fans here have a good idea or knows someone who knows someone.

Thanks!

Nope, sorry. I would recommend you setup a shortcut key to volume up and volume down to get better control.
Personally I use Ctrl-Win up and down (because Win-up and down are already taken by Win7...)

Thanks for the IRC tip. It's been 10 years since I used IRC, I thought this medium was mostly dead.

New official download page:

Wow! That was fast!

Thanks for the quick reaction! Great!


The automatic slide type switching now works as intended, but with some streaming sources it fails to recognize the source and the slider stays empty (with no lever). Not sure if this behaviour is due to the plugin itself or is caused by a bug in foobar2000.

I'll post here the url's of some of the streams not being recognized:

In the past the Foobar API was always returning a duration of -1 for streaming sources. I see it's now sometimes returning 0 as well, but there's a (new?) function to know if the source is seekable. I updated the component to use this function. The new version will be available soon.

Thank you for this improvement of the nearly perfect foobar.

A suggestion/question: is it possible to add the functionality to increase/decrease the volume by using the mouse wheel when hovering the icon?

Also it would be nice to have a 'simple use' or 'compact' modus 
-> only 1 icon that switches from <play> to <pause>, and by doubleclick to <stop>, or something like that

I'm pretty sure the mousewheel event isn't sent to the tray icon, but I will verify, this is a very good idea.

Sorry, this one will not happen. You can likely setup global key shortcuts for play, pause and stop. Some keyboard models have media keys that can be easily mapped to Foobar2000 playback control.
