Hi guys, I used to use foobar quite some time ago, but switched to iTunes because it had a few extra features that I liked. I've seen the light now though and want to ditch iTunes and move onto something else, preferably foobar! The one feature I'm after more than any in a media player is the ability to automatically organise files and folders depending on what I set as the ID3 tag. For example in iTunes you can have loads of random songs, just click and drag them into the iTunes window and it'll all be neatly sorted to:Music Folder/Artist/Album/01 Track Name.mp3This has saved me heaps of time in the past because you don't have to worry about renaming files, folders, moving things about etc, it just happens all very nicely in the background.On a side note, can you rip and burn CDs easily now in foobar? Thanks!
Just wondering regarding the first bit, does that mean it'll only move and rename files when I first drag them into foobar's library, or does it mean if I rename a track or whatever in foobar it'll automatically rename the file too? Thanks again
Ah I see, that's a shame, is there a plugin or a way to make it do it automatically?Unfortunately I don't think I'm going to be able to use this player anyway, I'm trying very desperately to set it up how I want it and I've just realised again why I ditched it last time; you spend more time tweaking it and customising it than you actually do using it
Indeed, I just want a player with the same layout as this - http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/54415764/ - and has the features I mentioned above (not so much the look, but I want it all listed nicely and with the ability to change different criteria at the top like iTunes)Maybe there's an easy guide or something I could read when I get a chance, I just really wish that installing plugins and changing the appearance were easy to do Sad to admit it, I basically want iTunes but not, if that makes sense ;p
Yup! Something with a layout like that would be perfect, I'd probably prefer lighter colours but that looks nice anyway Also not bothered really by album art or the lyrics, but I guess they're kinda neat additions (I listen to a lot of bands that wouldn't have these readily available too unfortunately)
Do you think there'll ever be a section of the site listing all of the plugins and a few skins/themes or whatever? I'm trying desperately to find download links for stuff but just can't get it anywhere, foo_browser, foo_burninate and foo_cdda don't seem to have download links anywhere, and I've no idea where to download visual styles from Edit: Brilliant cheers, will pm him
1) Where can I find the option to move/rename files and folders according to ID3 tags? I've looked and can't find it anywhere
Two final questions (sorry) just in case I can redeem it:1) Where can I find the option to move/rename files and folders according to ID3 tags? I've looked and can't find it anywhere 2) Is there any easy way of making Foo look like one of these:http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/4015/foobar5sp.jpghttp://img82.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ca...061824320hn.pnghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/Too...-2006-05-23.pngDon't really want any of the fancy stuff like album artwork etc, but I'd like: Clean/nice UI, Browser, CD Rip, CD Burn & Library Organistation
Sorry for asking what is evidently yet another ridiculous question, but where can I get masstag from? I've just been searching for around 10 minutes, ended up on loads of different websites, none of which had the download file ;_;db78 that looks great, I'm after something very similar to that, and the browser bar across the top is perfect! How did you do that?
