Author updates this plugin ones per month or two month for last few month. So you should wait.
Maybe he'll updates it, maybe not.


Since this post was 4.5 months ago, does anyone know for sure if development on this plugin has stopped or stalled?

There were a variety of requests/suggestions out there, notably a few people had suggested making it possible to use a $crlf() to permit a second line of text underneath the album covers (with the obvious intended effect of placing the artist name and the album name on two separate lines so as to avoid the album name being cut off).

This is a great plugin even if development is officially dead.  Does anyone know if there's anything left in store?

That could be the restriction in editing files from Quicktagger - go to:
Preferences ->  Tagging -> Quicktagger
There is an option how many track editings require a confirmation.

The preferences are sorted alphabetically and though it might be intimidating or confusing at first, most things can be changed there (also, take a look at the Advanced page: lots of "hidden" settings there too!
Another good starting point to search for info on the diverse components in foobar is here. You can click on most components which leads you to the respective documentation.

Hth


Thank you very much once again, that cleared that bit out, and the url you gave me goes straight to my favorites. Nothing seems really intimidating for me, some is just things i had nothing to do with before trying foobar so im inexperienced(have it under a week enjoying every second and learning allot in the process)

Zilberlex, I hear you  I was also hooked from the first minute I realized how powerful foobar is.
Especially EsPlaylist is one of my favourite addons, since the possibilities of the playlist views are so customizable: fixed view, layered view plus all the possibilities with custom info displayed. Also it comes with its own TF tags, these are mentioned in the included readme. A little difficult to understand, since 80% of the readme is japanese LOL, but worth while trying it out.

kt748, I am not around long enough to really know, but I cant imagine this developer disappears or drops development without any note. I could image he is just very busy at the moment. Thats just my personal idea, I have no contact with him.

I hope you're right, this plugin is exceptional and with some final refinement, it could be perfect.

i have many song or album have Multiple Artist
and i tag artist tag use foobar' Multiple var
like  artistname1;artistname1;artistname3

if i use %album artist% only can show have album' artist
if use %artist% will show  "artistname1;artistname1;artistname3" name 1 group = =

so...
i can only group use %<artist>% or %<album artist>%  (not %artist%  or %album artist% This is not the same)

now
i can see all  artistname1  artistname1 artistname3 on Different groups is ok

But a problem now

"Can not show artist image"    .........


Same problem here. Have you found a way to display the different artist images?
I've stored multiple artists in the %album artist% tag, like "Ella Fitzgerald; Louis Armstrong"

My artist images are in one directoy and have the name of the artists. So c:\...\Ella Fitzgerald.jpg and c:\...\Louis Armstrong.jpg

When using C:\...\%album artist%.jpg it doesn't work because there isn't a "Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong.jpg"
When using:
C:\...\$meta(album artist,0).jpg
C:\...\$meta(album artist,1).jpg
It displays the Ella Fitzgerald.jpg for both artists because it's both times true. I really don't know how to solve this problem. Any idea?


Also I got another problem with this great plugin I just started to discover. Because as you can see above I use multiple artists I have to activate the option: "Browse Library" beacuse multiple artists aren't supported for "Follow active playlist".
Now I do not understand the behaviour of the plugin anymore. When I set the behavior to "Play" it plays the song clicked but doesn't jump to the next song when it's over but stops.
I would like that it plays the next song also when I browsed to somewhere else. Any idea how I can realise this behaviour?!

Also since I switched to "Browse Library" every shortcut I use is activated with the song which is playling and not with the one selected.
So when I press alt+Enter to get into the property menu I get the property menu of the playing song and not the one I selected. To get to the properties menu of the selected song I have to use the mouse and use the contextmenu. Can I change this behaviour?!

I would be very gratefull for some answers. 

greetings plissk3n!

Katan, you have to right click into the panel and choose a display option of your liking.

I am struggling with filtering my library and seeing the results in EsPlaylist - if anyone has any advice I'd appreciate it.  I have EsPlaylist set to "browse library", and I've tried to filter my library view by using either Library>Search and entering a filter expression, or using the "filter search" toolbar and entering the same filtering expression. 

When I try either approach with any filtering attempt, I do not see any filtering results in my "browse library" view or any other EsPlaylist view - I continue to see the unfiltered library at all levels of the library.  I believe my filtering expressions have the correct syntax because the use of the same expressions in CUI without the use of EsPlaylist results in my expected results.

Is anyone else experiencing this in EsPlaylist, and if so, is there anything I'm doing incorrectly?  If I'm not doing anything incorrectly, is there a workaround?  thanks

you need to use the search box built-in to EsPlaylist if you want to filter the library view. right click>options>appearance>show search bar.

Recently I've noticed that I no longer can write Space when searching (just typing while EsPlaylist is active). I've always been able to do this, but now when I for example type letter P, Space, P, then the search string becomes 'PP' and not 'P P'.

How does your EsPlaylist react when searching like this? Am I the only one experiencing this?

In the txt-file of esPlaylist there is a remark, that esplaylist is running with Windows Vista+... so: Are there restrictions when running with Foobar under Windows XP SP3 oder doesn't it work anyway?

Hi, everyone.

I've updated some components (see update log) and EsPlaylist stopped showing 'nocover' image:

However, NGPlaylist is still showing that image:

I failed to find any option regarding default 'nocover' image, can anyone point me to the heart of the problem?

that nocover image is built into columns UI.

you can specify one that Esplaylist (and any other art display panels) will use under file>preferences>display>album art>stub image path.

Thanks, that helped - it actually virtual disk b: that was missing, to where image path was specfied.

Hey guys,

i'm pretty new to foobar and i got 2 questions:

1. there is no way of using this great playlist panel with the column ui filters in library view mode, right? there is also no similar component?

2. this plugin is the only way of having a separated library view playlist, right?


so if there is no way of circumvent the lacking feature in 1., i've got to use the plugin anyway because of its advantages in 2. :-)


thank you very much :-)

How to enable playback according to album currently the playback is according to the default path, since i am having several albms inside a folder but the playback in ESPlaylist is according to their default path not according to the album in the same playlist. This results in track jump from one album to another in some cases. Though i am not sure that it is the playlist specific issue but never faced such issue in default playlist and simplaylist till now.

Hi,
I'm currently using this addon for foobar2000, EsPlaylist.

With your great addon, it is possible to define a action to add contents to a specified playlist, but the field "specify playlist name" is static.
(in the screenshot, it will add to the playlist named "%title%", this expression is not evaluated)

It is possible to add variable evaluation and a new variable linked to the title of the selected grouping layer ?




Thanks for the reply.
If you no longer develop on this addon, did you want to put your addon on open-source to let community enhanceyour work and not let it die ?



Now, i using two instances of this addon as below:



I would like to use 3 instances to replace the playlist switcher in middle of both instances.

shortly: I need this to NOT add the songs to the playback queue

I'm using two esplaylists panels. One of them following the now playing playlist and the other one for a recent added albuns autoplaylist visualization. And also an album list panel for the complete library. 
When i double-click (or press enter) so i can listen to an album on the recent added playlist, it plays it, but it also adds it to the playback queue, which becomes a problem when i decide i want to listen something else and try to play someting from the album list panel. Instead of playing and sending it to the default playlist (as it does otherwise) it just plays the next queued track.

Any way of solving this?
Thanks

How can I show/hide the search bar in the EsPlaylist?

EDIT: nvm I found it there, it was posted already: right click>options>appearance>show search bar

I have just started using this playlist panel but my albums' cover art keeping coming on and off the display. Is there a way to show all art constantly without parts of it disappearing?

What do you mean by "coming on and off the display"? My album art is always shown, both in my album art box, and in my EsPlaylist. Like this:

Anyone who knows if it's possible to type search for both Artist and Title? Normally it's just searching for Artist.

Any ideas?
