foo_wlm

My first attempt at a plugin .
Let's hope I compiled it correctly such that it works.



foobar2000 1.0 and above: Download v1.1.8a (25th Feb 2011)
foobar2000 0.95 (No longer updated): Download Removed (21st September 2009)

You may use the following titleformatting variables in your PSM:
  • %streamname%
  • %isstream% - Usage Example: $if(%isstream%, 'is stream', 'not stream')

For people who do not have WMP and want to use this plugin: Read this post for a workaround (Thanks Niels!)




Important Note:
As WLM has apparently forced a "%title% - %artist%" format on your contact list from Windows Live Messenger 2009 (WLM 14.x) onwards, changes have been made from V 1.1.0 to work around this. However, this doesn't follow WMP's format/standard. Additionally, on this plugin, you are recommended to have a " - " (that is a space dash space) in your custom media format.

If that pattern isn't used, there will be an additional dash behind your message. Do note that this only happens on your contact list and not in the convos.

With Dash Pattern in WLM 2009 (WLM 14.x):

For those who do not want a PSM to be displayed when you pause your track, use the following TF (editable in preferences -> WLM):
Code: [Select]
$if(%ispaused%,,%title% '-' %artist%)

Thanks for making this!

It's simple and to the point.

Nice, but we already have a nice working plugin for that?

However, I'd like to put a feature request then:

Make the display picture show the current albumart. If no albumart is available it should just not change a thing. This is already possible with another plugin, I think made by Acropolis, but when no albumart is available, the display picture is completely disabled.
Can't wait for a HD-AAC encoder :P

Excellent plugin. For me it's better then foo_msnalt because it properly displays artist and title of a song played on an internet radio.

Well, my intentions were to keep things as simple as possible for this plugin. But this should possible and if I do have the time I may just embark on this .

I'm having my exams in less than a fortnights time, so I won't have time to add this. Also, my higher priority now is to get my web portfolio working .

@the rest:
Thanks for the compliments
:)

Well-done! I was thinking of hacking foo_msnalt to do exactly this. This is an excellent example of how to do a foobar2000 component properly, as far as I can see!

Hmm looks great but for some reason when I try to use it foobar gives me this message:

Failed to load DLL: foo_wlm.dll
Reason: This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Yep, same error here, except I get the message in Korean.

Do I need the .NET Framework? I've got 1.1 and 2.0.

No, you need the VC++ 2008 SP1 runtime. Of course, if the plugin was linked against the static version of the runtime, this problem wouldn't exist.


Ah interesting, I'll link it against the runtime if I find the time to figure out how to later.

Is it recommended to do so anyway? Won't it make the file size significantly larger?

It makes the compiled .dll bigger, yes, but it saves people from having to download the 4MB redist package if they don't happen to already have the VC++ runtimes installed. The size increase to the component, on the other hand, is usually a couple hundred kB at most.

Thx for this nice plugin. The foo_msnalt.dll version I used until now stopped working with fb2k 0.9.6 beta 1 ("Failed to load and needs to be recompiled") but this one works great.
