Hello, oblikoamorale (:

Thank you for a great component. But I have a question and a feature suggestion.

Here it goes:
Is it possible to use it with IPv6 and if it's not, are you planning to add IPv6 support in the future?
It would be much easier to configure, because it would not require port forwarding anymore.

Thanks.

Apologies if this has been asked, but is there a way to set the "home directory" via relative path?

Right now it defaults to: %FB2K_DIRECTORY%\foo_httpcontrol_data\
But I want it to be: %FB2K_DIRECTORY%\user-components\foo_httpcontrol\data\

Any type of relative path I've tried results in the little error box, it only accepts the full path, and it doesn't seem to expand/use %FB2K_DIRECTORY%

Hi guys,

i started with that plugin years ago when i did not own a smartphone by myself and found it interesting up to now (using foobar since ever! =)
so i took some minutes to create a skin that works with portrait and landscape mode and a huge range of resolutions of smartphones (nothing is really fixed).
also all clients will keep theirselves sync with the server (using this brand new stuff called javascript worker).
currently only the basics have been integrated, but i will continue =D

if someone is interested in (and maybe has some knowledge about programming) we could create a new project on GIT or Google-Code, so we can share everything with the community...



summary:
---------------------
+ viewport: portrait + landscape (not yet completed)
+ player controls: prev, play/pause, next
+ main navigation: player, playlist, library
+ player: cover (autoscaled to fit viewport)
+ playlist: smooth content scrolling (while controls fixed)
+ playlist: playing song highlight
+ playlist: queued/fading song highlight

todo:
---------------------
+ viewport: add style switches for large viewports to show more information (does it make sense?)
+ global: add function to store settings in local storage/cookie
+ main navigation: add playlists browser
+ library: browse
+ library: search
+ library: add to playlist function
+ library: add to queue function
+ playlist: search
+ playlist: autoload sibling pages when scrolling near start/end of playlist and attach them to current list
+ playlist: add to queue fuction
+ playlist: add scrollbar
+ playlist: add more info
+ player: add volume control

Möhre, that looks really sweet. You should definitely keep working on that. I don't have a great use case for it at the moment as I'm already using BubbleUPnP, but this would be a decent alternative for just http control.

So I love foo_httpcontrol and am using it with a slightly modified ajquery setup. Everything works perfectly except for one issue with queries. Whenever I query and the results return an album with multiple discs the tracks are interleaved like this:



It doesn't appear to be anything on the client side (that I can find) because even my smart playlists show things properly in ajquery, so I assume it has to be with how the query sorts (or doesn't) incoming results. Any help/ideas you guys have would be appreciated.

Hello,

Sorry to disturb you it is not working and it's driving me insane , I'm using foobar 1.1.11 stable and httpcontrol 0.97.12 I wrote the ip address of my big computer on both foobar and my galaxy nexus (running android 4.0.2), I tried with port 8888 it didn't work so I checked open ports and copied one in both but it still doesn't work...

The only thing I couldn't do is placing a template, with foobar 1.1.11 and httpcontrol 0.97.12  I don't have any httpcontrol_data folder and I can't get the component to work without installing it via foobar, and foobar won't allow me to install template as well the zip does not show up.

I'm looking for a way to use my Nokia 5800 (Symbian) to remotely
control the Foobar I have on a PC wired to an ampli.

In the house we have an access point wired to a wired LAN
on which there is a wired router.

I installed this plugin and some templates and if I
write 127.0.0.1:8888\ on the address bar of Firefox on any of the PCs
I have no my wired LAN, I can see my FB at work.

I set up my 5800 and I can go in the Web through the "WLAN+LAN+router" way.

I set my router to forward the calls to the 8888 port, to the
IP address of the PC where FB is working.

Questions:

1 - do I need to go through the web to access my FB
    from my phone even if I'm in the reach of my WLAN?

2 - if yes, is it correct that I put my public IP address followed
    by ":8888\" in the phone browser to reach my FB?

3 - if not, what do I need and what shoud I do?

Thanks.

This looks great!  I don't know if I wold be much help on the coding side, but I would be happy to help you test it!

Hell no! You should not forward the ports with your router to the WAN!!! We do not know if the integrated webserver is safe and secure!

3 - if not, what do I need and what shoud I do?


You have to give your FB computer a static IP using the windows network settings within the same subnet that your router uses for the DHCP service (e.g. your router will give IPs from 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.253 -> you can assign every ip within that range to your FB computer). Your access point should not provide an own DHCP service but forward IP requests to the router! After that you can test if you reach http_control by using the same IP in your computer's/phone's browser. Both should work.

In other words a sample configuration could be:
- Router DHCP 192.168.0.100-192.168.0.200
- FB computer static on 192.168.0.20
- Phone uses auto IP and gets 192.168.0.143 over WiFi from router's DHCP

Now you could test:
- Loopback on computer by using http://127.0.0.1:8888 in the computer's browser
- Network loop on computer by using http://192.168.0.20:8888 in the computer's browser
- Remote access on phone by using http://192.168.0.20:8888 in the phone's browser

If one fails it might be a firewall problem. As long as u are using ur internet over NAT/Gateway it is safe to turn off any security tools for a short time while testing.
If that does not help you, your router might be configured for hiding the clients to each other (uncommon)
If all tests failing u should take another port because it might be in use already

I would buy you no less than 3 and no more than 27 beers if this could access the DSP effects (stock and from foo_dsp_effect).
No really, that would be fantastic, and would close the loop on a long time project of mine.

You have to give your FB computer a static IP...

I did it. My conf is something like this:

Router = 192.168.0.1 - DHCP disabled
FB computer static on 192.168.0.101
Access point - wired side - static on 192.168.0.254
                    WIFI side - DHCP on (from 192.168.0.240 to 192.168.0.250)

It doesn't work. Opera mini gives me the error: "the IP address is not avalaible at the moment".
In the DHCP client list page of the access point web server, I can see the phone has been assigned the IP 192.168.0.240

No firewall set on the FB computer or on the phone.

Going through the WEB with "[my public IP]:8888" from the phone, it works.
(Of course, I temporarily forwarded that port to the FB computer, in the router SUA server setup)


Thanks.

Seems to me devices using your access point are kind of seperated from the rest of your network. It would be easier to test with a notebook if it is generally possible to reach the fb machine.
Maybe it will help if u add a static hostname for your fb machine's ip in the main router and/or access point.

I'm sorry, but it never could due to http_control does not provide such api.

I got it to work by creating a 'httpcontrol_data' folder within foobars 'components' folder and then copied everything into it.

I ran the FB trouble shooter and this plugin comes up as a problem with a link here to update to the latest version - however I just did that - 0.97.12 shows in my version.

What's UP?

@Möhre - are you still working on your android-ish webapp? If you throw the code up on github I might be able to help. I am currently working on something similar borrowing the interface look and feel (read: css) from html5.grooveshark.com, however I suspect copyright issues will prevent me from releasing that interface to the general public. I am probably working on a similar set of issues to you though, so I would be glad to help out if I can. Also do you have any interest in forking foo_httpcontrol? I could desparately use some features that are not in the module (and are not likely to ever be), such as having album art as part of an ordinary song query (I managed a hack around this) and having support for moving selected tracks between playlists (this would be my top priority).

Alright: I finally managed to compile the sources for the httpcontrol module, so I am now in a position to service feature requests! I have also written oblikoamorale to ask for write access to the official project on google code. If he does not get back to me I will fork the code and host my copy elsewhere. Though I may be willing to service feature requests, my main interest is in getting a UI in place the will be hopefully oodles more user friendly than any of the current ones.

Great! Keep up the good work, I'm really interested in what you are doing so I'll be glad to see something released soon.

Hello,
I just installed Foobar2000 1.1.14a on my PC and it has crashed multiple times with HTTP control 0.97.12.

Looks like I am not the first to see it.  Any idea of what is happening?  I can go back to Foobar2000 1.1.13 for trials, but it was fine with that version.

any feedback appreciated.

Hello,
I have no idea what I am doing wrong, but it used to work with the old web remote tool plugin.
This is what I am getting. I have tried from different computers:

Error loading template configuration file:
foo_httpcontrol_data\index.html\config

Most likely it happened because the directory are trying to open doesn't contain template, or template files there are incomplete.

Check foobar2000 console (View/Console) for error details.
Show installed templates


Could somebody assist please ?
Thank you!!!
