Is there a plugin for foobar2000 to search + play videos from YouTube?
Hi,

I'm looking for a Plugin which enables foobar to search live in youtube and playes music from there..
When I'm searching I only found support for playing flv files.

Is there such a plugIn?

no. but you can use foo_run to launch youtube in a browser with the current song artist/title details as the search criteria. you can then bind this action to a button or keyboard shortcut.

use the search box at the bottom left of the page to search the thread for "youtube". i'd imagine someone has already posted an example of how to do it.

once you have installed foo_run you can add these terms in tools > run services

you can rename the first part however it suits you, these are then available by right clicking a track under 'run services' in your playlist

Code: [Select]
Artist : http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=$replace(%artist%, ,+)&aq=f
Artist - Title : http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=$replace(%artist%+%title%, ,+)&aq=f
Artist Playlist : http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=search_playlists&search_query=$replace(%artist%, ,+)&uni=1

Hmm. Thanks, but does'nt find the point.


I was recently discovering the media player tomahawk.

A nice (think beta stadium) music player which should be able to play Music
from a local drive but also from different resolvers.

The point is that this resolvers could be for example youtube,
the own media server or something like that.
This is an awesome feature!

Tomahawk unfortunately is still not what I would call a power UI.
But has some great Ideas,
so I hoped that foobar could take also some of this idea.

Here is example VBS wrapper to a python script I made some time ago: foo_scrap.vbs
Link to python script: scrap.py

If anyone wants to use it, just copy both scripts in same folder and add foo_run action (I placed them both in "scripts" sub-folder relative to foobar folder):

Could you make a executable with py2exe or something?

Can do, but doesn't feel good bundling single script in couple of megabytes exe
Then for Python 2.6 and up, some special version of MSVCR90.dll is needed besides. Too complicated to be worth

Don't tell me you don't have Python

Hmm, maybe ill try it at weekend.
But python ... I try to keep my foobar portable ...

BTW.: is there a way to get foobar by double clicking a Song in Searchs (album list, & Co)
to add it as next in playlist?

Together with foo_run it's exactly what you're looking for
