You could use WineSkin, which recently received a much improved version 2. It should be fairly simple; just install that and then install foobar2000 into a Wrapper (quite easy to do).

I can't find the components folder. As a matter of fact, there's no Wine-folder at all... Am I the only one this has happened to? I removed and reinstalled it once, but there's still no Wine-folder in Library\Application Support. Typing "Wine" into Spotlight gives me nothing.

I still have no music on the computer (got it yesterday) so I haven't been able to test anything really, but I thought tinkering around with extensions could be done anyhow...

It's not .wine in your home folder?

I tried restarting, but it didn't show up, so made a quick try with WineSkin (as dv1989 suggested), and then the folder was there (along with a Wineskin folder). Don't know why, but I guess the problem is solved...

I assume it was because of this:
Quote
The download is ~60MB, mostly because it is bundled with Wine. If you already have Wine installed, this should still work perfectly – it should just use the local Wine configuration contained in the app bundle and ignore your previous installation. Nothing is installed to your system directories so your existing version of Wine won't be overwritten or anything like that.
In other words, the folder you were looking for was probably inside the application package; if so, it could be accessed by right-clicking on the app, selecting Show Package Contents, and checking the folders inside.

Edit: WineSkin similarly embeds Wine in user-created wrappers (apps), but according to your latest post it seems to also create a 'normal' installation.

In the updated version I uploaded, I removed the Audio CD support component.  I just didn't update the screenshots.

Does this mean that the previous version did have cd ripping?
If this is the case can you also offer the previous package?
Or better yet repackage the new one to include cs ripping.

The OP can clarify, but AFAIK, Wine still doesn't support access to either optical drives or USB ports, so you can't rip Audio CDs and you can't access iPods with foo_dop etc. Unfortunate - this is essentially why I run foobar in full Windows inside a VM instead of using Wine.

Dibrom rarely logs in nowadays, so perhaps not. However, it shouldn’t be difficult to create an updated wrapper yourself; see my post #102 above.

Hello,

I've created a little program that enables controlling Foobar2000 via hotkeys, uncreatively named FooHttpController:


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Some info:

First of all, this is my first project for the Mac platform, so please don't expect too much.
Also, this is the first version which I think is 'releaseable'...

I'm using a version v.1.1.6 of Foobar2000 installed via Crossover (worked on first try).

In order to use the app, you need to have the foo_httpcontrol component installed (http://code.google.com/p/foo-httpcontrol/) with the default template.

The default hotkeys are OPTION+Y for play, OPTION+X for pause, OPTION+C for stop, OPTION+V for previous track and OPTION+B for next track.
I've got a german macbook, so maybe OPTION+Y is a bad choice - but you can redefine the hotkeys via a preferences window (COMMAND+,).
Unfortunately, I haven't found out if it it possible at all to use the media keys - that would be the ultimate goal (replacing iTunes behaviour).

Finally, here's the app: https://rapidshare.com/files/1934574921/Foo...troller.app.zip

Regards
bruder_s

ill see what i can do, if:
- this re-wrapping is legal? from foobar's point of view?
- the file size wont go ballistic
PANIC: CPU 1: Cache Error (unrecoverable - dcache data) Eframe = 0x90000000208cf3b8
NOTICE - cpu 0 didn't dump TLB, may be hung

Hey everyone! Just to say that the installer on the first page works great!!
I did read the full topic but didn't find if anyone could find a easier or a way that the app runs faster on a macbook, if yes please let me know!

I registered myself first to thanks the port, it's a great deal! I use foobar on my PC, but since I started to travel etc, and my travel notebook it's a mac, I needed to be a itunes user (actually Ecoute trial-user atm), but I really loved the way I could tag and organize my mp3 on foobar, couldn't find a match for it that works on mac, so I downloaded the port presented here and it worked! Masstagger works great!! BUT the rename operation in the foo_fileops.dll from the pack isn't working. Does anyone know what to do to make it work? Didn't find a way to download just the .dll to try update it.

thanks for reading! again, thank you for the port

hello,

do you have file drag'n'drop working?

i've tried the installer proposed in this topic but it reindexes all my library on each startup, which takes lots of time.
i also tried WineSkin, reindexing seems ok, but drag'n'drop did not work....

That's really really nice, thx! Would be awesome if you can get the multimedia keys working. I found out that Songbird did achieve it with a plug-in, maybe this could be helpful. MMFix "fixes" the issue that iTunes is launched by pressing the play button.
Besides than that it would be awesome to have it only as an icon in the menubar. So it does not clutter the dock.

I've used the original bundle and iTunes reports AAC encoded with Nero 1.5.3.
Is this right?
Nero's page does not even list this version?
Some ancient betas?
Is there anywhere complete version history of neroAAC / neroDigital?

Since bruder_s was so kind as to release his source on GitHub, I hacked extremely basic media key support onto this plugin (it now responds to the "play" button and sends a PlayOrPause action). I'm using a MS Natural ergo 4000 keyboard, so it's the only one I've got. I can probably hack in the other buttons if people want, but I can't test them easily.

The setup for all the rest of the plugin is the same, and additionally if you don't want iTunes firing up every time you press the PLAY button, install http://nomitsu.com/contents/MMFix.dmg to stop it (seems to work in lion 10.7.3).

Here's the app:
http://bayfiles.com/file/eQgR/zarFFA/FooHttpControllerM.zip

If bruder_s wants the code or for me to commit back to the repository, that's fine

Cheers,
--flux

Hi everyone. I have been a longtime Foobar lover and I have only recently purchased my first Mac (for audio production).
I am using Clementine at the moment and it has a lot of potential but it's very early stages yet. This bundle sounds great, but the link is long since expired...

Is anyone willing to post an updated download link for the bundle?
Thanks.

Dutchy.

Just download Wineskin and bundle foobar2000 yourself. By which I mean the current version, not the immensely outdated one you would have gotten here. The process is trivial.

Nothing personal, but since you reminded me: I am tempted to lock this or at least amend the first post, for (1) as I said, the original bundle is ancient and now 404d, (2) Dibrom no longer visits the board, and (3) anyone distributing a new bundle would be violating the license by my understanding.

So I've finally found some passion for seriously listening to music again and iTunes just wasn't cutting it for me.  Cog didn't quite have all the features I wanted, and I couldn't get Play to compile or run on Snow Leopard.  That only left one option: foobar2000 under Wine.

People have been running foobar2000 under Wine for awhile, mostly successfully.  However, it's kind of a hassle to have to download, read about, and configure Wine correctly when you just want to be listening to your music already.  To alleviate some of the annoyance, I've created a little app bundle and installer for foobar2000 and Wine.  What you get is a foobar2000.app that you can just double click on and it will load more or less like any other app.  Of course, the controls look like Windows controls, but hey, we can't have everything, right?

I haven't had a chance to test this bundle extensively, so it would be useful if Mac OS X users could try it and give me some feedback.  You can download it here.

Note 1: You will need X11 installed to run this.  It may already be installed.  If not, find it on the Mac OS X install disc.
Note 2: If you have previously one of the beta versions, I recommend deleting your old installation first.  Make sure to back up any custom foobar2000 settings.

The download is ~60MB, mostly because it is bundled with Wine.  If you already have Wine installed, this should still work perfectly – it should just use the local Wine configuration contained in the app bundle and ignore your previous installation.  Nothing is installed to your system directories so your existing version of Wine won't be overwritten or anything like that.

And of course, here are some screenshots of it in action:






Disclaimer:  This distribution is experimental and not officially supported.  I did speak with Peter about it before I uploaded it and I believe he is having his testers take a look at it, but if you encounter problems, please notify me or post in this thread for the meantime.

Have fun and don't forget to leave feedback if you check it out.

Well, I've just tried that today because with Wine I had a problem with scanning my Music Folders (it was scanning but not the full library). But I have the exact same problem with CrossOver... it seems like each folder is limited to 40 subfolders to be scanned.. weird. I have a very large music library (around 1Tb on an external HD)...

fb2k version is 1.3.6, I'm trying 1.3.7 and an old one, just in case. EDIT: It didn't work.

I have been searching for an answer as to why this happens or some type of fix. I have all music in subdirectories by artist sorted by letter (an A folder, B, C, etc.) and some of them have quite a few artists. Any that have more than 40 experience the exact same issue you've described, at most i think I have 51 of 118 artist directories in the 'C' folder under 'Music' showing in the library. It loads the first 51 subdirectories and everything after that is missing. This is apparent when browsing for a folder to monitor: the browser also has this limitation, not just when you add the directory and view your library. It is very frustrating and doesn't seem to have to do with any setting since there is no consistent 'cut-off' that I have observed. There are probably very few people in the universe dealing with this issue, but hopefully someone can weigh-in. I have also tried this with both Wineskin AND Crossover with the exact same results. Music is located on an external NTFS drive. Any help is appreciated
