I love the simple interface and improved sound over other players (I really hear a slight difference and don't think it's a placebo or my settings), but how can I make it:
1. Automatically play a CD when I insert it? I have Windows XP and when I put in a disc, the autostart menu pops up with Windows Media Player and Explorer in it etc., but not Foobar. I have to choose File - Play Audio CD from Foobar and don't see an option in preferences to automatically do that.
2. Automatically retrieve CD track titles and album art from freedb. I can right-click on all the track numbers and choose Tagging - Get Tags from freedb, but how can I have it happen automatically when I play a disc without having the CD titles just come up as Track 1 - Track 15?
3. I installed PanelsUI and have the Album Art and Lyric Show plugins installed, but no matter what disc I play, it never comes up with anything, even though they're pretty popular discs.
I'm quite sure 1) & 2) should be possible by tweaking Windows Explorer's Tools-->Folder Options...-->File Types. I've managed to get 1) by selecting the item with with 'AudioCD' in the 'File Types' column, clicking 'Advanced' and adding an entry which points to foobar. The command-line in that entry should be something like the following:[blockquote]"C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" /play "%1"[/blockquote]I'm unable to do 2) (that is, automatically "get tags from freedb"). I thought that changing the command-line to the following would do it, but it did not:[blockquote]"C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" /play "%1" /command:"Select all" "/playlist_command:Tagging/Get tags from freedb"[/blockquote]I've tried a couple of other options (using /add first, and /play in the end; clearing the playlist before etc.), but no luck. If any of you manage to do it, I'd love to see your solutions (hint: it's easier to test those settings by using Start-->run...; only remember to change "%1" to "<your CD-rom drive letter>:".
I hate to resurrect an old thread, but I was also wondering about automatic freedb tagging of audio cds. 0.8 did it with the foo_freedb plugin (iirc), and what of this? http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?ti...obar2000:FreedbThat describes being able to set automatic retrieval from freedb and the screenshots are clearly XP...
