i can try answering those question: - i use it as a browser over lan with another foobar instance - it only happens in CUI (and not in potrable mode as i said) - if i don't use UPnP the error is still there when closing foobar - and it happens all the time
I think the idea of controlling a foobar server from a foobar client would be great (e.g. for laptop owners - controlling your HTPC from your laptop), and I hope a dev (maybe you ?) can be interested in implementing this.
Sorry, I was editing my post to say "without any VNC-like solution". I think you can understand the benefits of not having to use VNC. For example having different interfaces for the Server and the Client, like I said in the other topic's example.VNC is an external solution when we're talking about what a foobar component could be. Your question is about the same as asking "Why do people ask for lyric search components when there's Evil Lyrics ?". The answer is "Because some people (most people in fact) prefer to launch one single app called foobar and have all needed functionality". Better integration is the key : I think this makes sense.
new version with crash at exit with CUI version of the browser fixed + some new goodies:0.98.2
Another cool way to remote control a foobar instance would be to create a plugin that emulate the MPD protocol.
That way you could use any existing MPD client program to remote control foobar2000.
Now, if using a MPD client you could as well use a real MPD server connected to your HTPC...

Do you think that some future foo_mpd component with a selectable mode (client or server) could technically allow foobar to act as both a MPD client or a MPD server ? If that's technically feasible, then that could be what we're trying to achieve.Quote from: bubbleguuum on 24 April, 2009, 10:21:33 AMNow, if using a MPD client you could as well use a real MPD server connected to your HTPC...That wouldn't work with my other topic's example :- HTPC : would display fancy stuff (Album Art Viewer, Spectrum, Lyrics, Chronflow, you name it) => it would need foobar- Client : would display search stuff (Facets, Playlist Manager, Playlist View...) => it also would need foobarIf the solution is a foo_mpd client/server plugin, then maybe it's time to create a topic for it. Would that be relevant ?
Hi bubbleguuum,Could you please give us your thought about the two last posts in this topic ? http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=29308I'd like to know if foo_upnp could evolve to offer such functionality, or if another component would be needed from scratch.I think the idea of controlling a foobar server from a foobar client would be great (e.g. for laptop owners - controlling your HTPC from your laptop directly within foobar, without any VNC-like solution), and I hope a dev (maybe you ?) can be interested in implementing this.Thank you.
I downloaded the latest version 0.98.2., and put the foo_upnp.dll into the ..\components folder.When restarting foobar, my firewall popped up alerting me that foobar2000.exe is trying to broadcast using remote port 1900 (SSDP protocol) - I figure thats the server part of the upnp functionality, so it must have found and used the foo_upnp.dll.So far, so good.Now I expected to "see" my Twonky server somewhere in the library tree, but nope.
(...)You need to add the UI Element (called UPnP Browser) to your configuration. It is a window containing the browse tree.If you're new to foobar maybe you have not done UI layout editing before, so here's some quick instruction to add the UI element:enter layout editing mode (View->Layout->Enable layout editig mode). In this mode when you right click on a component in the UI, you'llbe able to add new ones. For a quick test just select one component, right-click then select Replace UI Element and in the component list choose UPnP Browser (it is in the Utility section).Then you should have a window with your UPnP server listed and browsable. If you don't want to replace an existing component you'll need to add a vertical or horizontal splitter first.You may want to familiarize yourself with the UI editing mode as this allow to custom the UI.
Great plugin! Posted a guide on how to use this to stream music to your iPhone remotely. http://nerdlets.org/2009/05/07/set-up-a-up...ith-foobar2000/
