oblikoamorale, what kind of authentication is used by foo_httpcontrol??
I'm trying to get my Android app working with user credentials enabled but I'm clueless right now.

Thanks.

I hope this is the right place to file a bug report/feature request...

I had a folder with songs of different albums, each song had the album cover embedded. But httpcontrol was always showing the album art of the same song. After 2 hours I found out that another application extracted the images and stored them in super hidden system private image files in the same folder and httpcontrol always selected the first of these images to show it as the cover.

My suggestion would be to always show embedded images first and then fall back to images in the folder.

there's indeed a priority of external album art over embedded one. It's been like that from the very beginning, and I don't really want to change things people got used to.
if you want you can compile your own component build with this "fix", it's just a matter of modifying one function a bit.

I tried to use http control, however when I try to start the server, I get these messages in the console:
Code: [Select]
[16:29:50] foo_httpcontrol: WSAEventSelect failed.
[16:29:50] foo_httpcontrol: error: couldn't create helper thread.

I am running foobar2000 1.5 on Windows 7 Professional x64.

Vakata2 bug and work around :

I noticed that the "+" (queue to playlist) of the filebrowser panel was not working!
In fact, it needs the presence of a playlist with the exact name "playlist" and when such a playlist exists it works well, even if the playing playlist has a different name.

another vakata2 bug:

When the track name is long enough to overlap the "+" , it does not work

First off, I wanted to say thanks for such a useful plugin!  Now on to some bug reports in a few templates:
So I just installed IE9 and have noticed that the ajquery and vakata2 templets both don't render properly.  Ajquery doesn't allow dragging or resizing of new menu elements such as extended playlist controls or album art.  Vakata2 doesn't display the playlist.  They both still work fine in Chrome and FF on the two computers I've tried.

Oh and a comment on embedded images vs folder images; I much prefer the current system of folder images first.

This issue is also present with both templates in Firefox RC 4. if i can provide anymore information please don't hesitate to ask

ajquery and vakata2 (http://goo.gl/1ReDN) fixed (remind me why am I doing this?)

thierryj: you might want to be more specific than that. I don't see the queueing problem you described.

Azhrei: albumart priority is configurable now, but default behaviour stays the same - external albumart preferred over embedded.

When you click on the "+" in the file browser , nothing happens (no queueing)

Thanks for your attention.

there's a global + button at the top of the file list, and individual + at the right side of every file. which one are you talking about?

anyways, it seems to work for me. have you applied a fix on original vakata2 install?

The individual one (remember the problem only arises if the description text of the music is so long that it overlaps the "+" button)

Yes, your last fix


Thanks

I'm not a css/html expert, and I don't have time to figure out more elegant solution: http://goo.gl/Rs7O7

Long text takes now other lines and do not overlap the button : that's perfect  . . . what else ?

Thanks a lot !

Has anyone else noticed the problem with the KEVO configuration where you can't scroll through the tracks in a playlist?  you can page though, but any can't scroll up or down.

I noticed this problem also with vakata2, ajquery when the client is not a PC so the solution is probably on the browser's side (no vertical scrolling bar), not here.
I experienced the following:
* smartphone under WM6.1 and Internet Explorer : Problem
* smartphone under WM6.1 and Opera Mobile 10: Problem
* smartphone under WM6.1 and Opera Browser:  NO Problem
* Android 2.2 tablet and Android browser : Problem

If someone knows a browser for Android which has not this problem, please inform .

Thanks

it isn't very sensible to use templates meant for desktop on mobile browsers, and vice versa.
kevo template is originally developed for iphone, and it's where it belongs.
if default playlist size makes template unfit for your screen height, adjust playlist_items_per_page in template config.

this works well !

Can we have the same formatting capabilities for the file browser panel (multiple pages and a limited number of items per page)

Thanks

Good news: the new Opera Mobile 11 (downloaded today) works fine with vakata2 on my Android 2.2 tablet (Archos 101)
There is no vertical scroll bar but the lists (playing list & browser file list) are not truncated any more. You just access them by scrolling and zooming with your fingers

Hi,

How to hide all these question marks?



I only want to display the artist and title.

Also, how to make the slash, "/" into a dash "-" between artist and title?

Lastly in the "status bar" at the bottom, when only playing 1 file it shows as "Play ? of 1". That question mark should of course be a "1".

Thanks,

not configurable, but very simple to change. take a look at line 790 of ajquery.js, it's pretty straightforward:
group = ['<span class="pl-album" id="n', k, '"> / ', row.a, ' [', row.d, '] ', row.b, "</span>"].join('');

to remove brackets and replace slash this line should be changed to something like:
group = ['<span class="pl-album" id="n', k, '"> - ', row.a, "</span>"].join('');

Lastly in the "status bar" at the bottom, when only playing 1 file it shows as "Play ? of 1". That question mark should of course be a "1".

replace line 844 of ajquery.js with:
var playingItem = isNaN(fb.playingItem) ? '?' : fb.playingItem + 1;

Hey,

OK, trying to figure out the group part.

A little confused. I would like to so show what the start bar shows. That is simply "Artist - Title",

I see how it gets the Artist, but not the title.

Though if I load a folder the Artist is only shown for the first song, not all of them.

Also, the title of the page is only the Title. Would also like that to be "Artist - Title".

Also, with the change you suggested, there is still "?." before the Artist.

Thanks again,

Will

just tag your files properly: define artist, album, date and tracknumber fields and you won't see any question marks anymore.
