Is it possible to have multiple libraries with foobar2000? Even if it's a hack to install another instance of it and run it concurrently, I'm interested. Thanks for any pointers.
What version of foobar2000 are you using?You may have to change the "Location of configuration files" (found in preferences/general ..in the new betas anyway) from "User profile folder" to "Application install folder" before making a copy of the program folder... just a thought.Be careful though, and read the warning in preferences under this option...
Ah ha, thanks, that was it, I'm using the latest beta 6. Awesome, I'll give this a try!
Sounds interesting, in that I am a musician myself and have tons of stuff either untagged or semi-tagged that would be great to have a separate library for...
So I assume that's a limitation of the WAV file metadata. I had hoped maybe foobar kept its own database. Anyone know a way around this?
PS: i don't really see the point in multiple libraries
thanks for the tricks ! Now I have two foobar dirs, one for classic music library and one for contemporary music library... ( i don't wish to mix Madonna with Mozart when I play random all the library )Well, for the next step I would like to select multiple libraries from a single foobar copy
Isnt this what playlists are for? Do a '%genre% HAS "classical"' search, and make a playlist from the results, and play that on random.
