Hi, thank you very much for this nice component.  Just some minor questions :

1°) Why do I need to select a track in the playlist view in order to make Cover Flow display something ? Am I doing something wrong ? I'd like to use Cover Flow as an album browser based on a Facets selection, but without the need of clicking on the playlist view to make it display something. Is it possible ?

2°) The text below the cover seems to be a bit too high, so a part of it is masked by the album cover. Why is that ? (and what about some options to change the text font / color / size / etc. ?  )

3°) What's the maximum length of the "Cover source" field ? With conditional title formatting, the patterns can easily get quite huge... maybe you could consider displaying it as a multi-line field ? That would help !

4°) What about a horizontal scroll bar or something like that ?

Thanks again !

In case you missed that, its on the way just hang in there buddy.
I second your first request, though I would've phrased the request in a more polite manor, if it is a request and not just a question. But Im sure you didn't mean to sound impolite.

Hi cybasoul,

You're totally right, I didn't mean to sound impolite at all, sorry. It's just my bad english.


EDIT - just like I predicted in my question 3°), I think I've just run into some buffer overrun or something. I've just tried to enter this code in Preferences / Sources / Cover source :

Code: [Select]
Z:\ARTWORK\$if($strcmp(%codec%,FLAC),LOSSLESS,LOSSY)\%origin%\$if($strstr(%genre%,Classique),%album artist%' - '%album%' ('[%original release date%-]%date%')'.jpg,$if($strstr(%genre%,Bande),'Soundtrack - '%album%' ('[%original release date%-]%date%')'.jpg,%album artist%' - ('[%original release date%-]%date%') '%album%.jpg))


With the previous, shorter version, it worked beautifully :

Code: [Select]
Z:\ARTWORK\$if($strstr(%codec%,FLAC),LOSSLESS,LOSSY)\%origin%\$if($strstr(%genre%,Classique),%album artist%' - '%album%' ('[%original release date%-]%date%')'.jpg,%album artist%' - ('[%original release date%-]%date%') '%album%.jpg)


But this new longer code just makes Cover Flow AND foobar crash instantaneously !  Besides, on restart, Cover Flow window won't display anymore, so I can't even edit its prefs...

FYI the first code is about 230 chars long (< 255) while the second is about 324 chars long (>255)... 

So would it be possible to raise the "Cover source" field length to 1024 chars or so ? (and if possible, display it as a multi-line field).

Thank you.

Is opera open when this happens? I have a similar problem with opera sometimes. It causes all sorts of weird graphical errors.

I'm having a problem on my home computer where foo_bubble_coverflow 0.18 will not add as a CUI panel. I am using CUI Version 0.3 beta 1 preview 4. Now, I have a similar setup at work and everything is perfect. I'm trying to figure out why it works one one computer and not another. Could other 3rd party plug-ins conflict or could it have to do with different video cards? Also, on the home computer foo_bubble_coverflow runs fine inside foo_dockable_panels. Thanks for the help.

you have Opera Browser like predefined browser of windows?  use  Internet Explorer like predefined browser to fix the problem. i think that is the problem, because when I choose Internet Explorer like predefined browser the problem disappears.

Firefox is my default browser because I find it starts faster than opera. I use opera everday though.

Sometimes when foobar is maximised and I minimize it the image of foobar stays over the opera window. When I move the mouse around parts of the opera interface appear. Its very strange.

Really nice component!!

However, I'm having some issues:
1) With some playlists the coverflow panel stays blank until I play a song from the playlist. This mainly happens with autoplaylists (ie not with playlists which have a lower playlist index than my autoplaylists), and it appears to only happen with every second playlist.

2) I have a lot of album art that is not named properly, therefore I use the following code to get album art in SCPL
Code: [Select]
$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,*folder*.*)

Maybe it is possible to allow placeholders like * in the future, to avoid the need of renaming all album art?

3) I'm using coverflow as a panel and when I want to scroll thru I always have to click in the panel. Would it be possible to make it scroll when the mouse is over the panel? Sorry if this was already requested....

Hi folks,

bubbleguuum, any feedback on my previous post, please ? I'm currently stuck with Cover Flow / foobar crashing, probably because of that 255 char limitation (unless I've really missed something of course)...

Thanks in advance for your reply.

@Jose Hidalgo: I'll fix the 256 character crash bug

@antar3s:

1. This is because these playlists do not select a track by default, and I use this information to know which cover to display.

2. and 3. I'll see what I can do

Hi Bubbleguuum,

i love the way your coverflow is bind to playlists, it give me the functionnalities i'm waiting for

1) when do you plan to make the animation when cover is changing ? Chronial animation is really great, but very quick, i hope you'll give us a good and light anim

2) i wait for tha hability to choose font (type and size), some new to give to us ?

Thanx by advance for feedback

bye

Here's 0.19 (download link on fisrt page) that just fixes the 256 limitation for titleformat strings. Now you have 2048 characters.

I won't do any further development on this plugin as I lost interest developping it and other things keep me busy  Good news is that I released the source code (see first post for download and details). Anyone is free to do whatever he wants with it.

Nice,
Even after discontinuing development, you still offer some teensy support.

I hope the best features of this make it into Chronial's version!

Thanks bubbleguum.  Hopefully someone will be willing to pick up where you left. It would be great to keep having two separate Cover Flow components, simply because it encourages innovation IMHO.

I swear that I don't mean to be an ingrate, but I am pretty much going with a bare bones fb2k from here on out. There just seems to be more & more 3rd party plugins left incomplete. There are now 3 artwork browsers out here all in different states of completeness, with 2 left incomplete and Chronial still working on Chronflow - for how long? I hate to bitch about this kind of stuff, because people create these plugins on their own time and free of cost, but after getting myself pumped up following, testing and using these components for months & months, I'm ultimately letdown with a product that cannot be fully utilized. I am not in these people's shoes, so I don't know their reasons for why they stop working on their projects. As for myself, I am a believer in finishing what I start, so in that sense I never let myself down, nor the people I do things for. I apologize for ranting, but I'm just frustrated to see another great work in progress go by the wayside.

Yo,

Anybody thinking of picking up development on this plug-in?

It is what I currently use and would love to see it further developed. I'd like to migrate to Chronial's cover flow plug-in, but it sadly does not support embedded album art.

Just throwing it out there!

Peace.

I cant seem to get coverflow to show me my pics... for coversource i use:
$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)*.jpg

  • Add a configruation item for font setting
  • Now support display unicode characters(chinese, janpanese, etc)
