Kerpondile, I hope you have not abandoned this component. I disagree that it's entire functionality can be replaced by other components.I however, think that maybe a separate window, like the one used for Playlist Search/Media Library Search to display and allow editing of queue would be more in place.Personally I don't think it should have a panel, but that's just me I like using the space for something more useful, as i'm just rarely using the queue.
I like the idea. No messing with playlists, just plain window with queue contents. It could have option of auto-focus/show on Add-to-queue action. And I believe that when Default UI Elements API becomes public, it will not be to difficult to make panel version.
[...] I can say for myself that i dont want any panel or additional window (!?), nor any bashing against "winamp users". [...]
And when it comes to new features, I will not create features that fight against the original function of the queue (saving queue between foobar sessions etc.).
the only thing i'd wish is the ability to save queues over restarts of foobar. everything else the posters above me mentioned would be nice to have but for my part not really nescessary.
Someone suggested creating a separate component for "party playlists" and that was quite interesting. I might still create something like that some day if I find the time.
However an obvious problem with this is that anyone can still just go frenzy on it A way to avoid this could be to time trigger when a new track may be queued, or make any queued track overwrite the last one until the last queue-entry is xx seconds/minutes old.
Also how would you prevent anyone from hooking it and just create another playlist?
foo_queuecontents is an foobar2000 extension component mainly developed by me. It started as a modification of foo_locktest by foosion.
@kerpondilePlease keep component as a playlist too.It's quite handy in it's current form as well.

But when I double-click e.g. the second song of particular album, playback is started and foobar plays this song and next the 3rd song of this album and then 4th, etc. During this playback, Queue playlist provided by your plugin remains blank.
You can use ELPlaylist as a panel: Bind it to your queue playlist and deactivate "follow active playlist"You can also follow NowPlaying playlist, and the only drawback seems that it isn't easy customizable, but as a queue panel it can be great
