Integrated web browsing within foobar2000?
Hey guys,

I have been using foobar2000 for awhile now, and have just switched to it at work however I need to be able to watch my cameras which is a simple http website address.

Is there a plugin which allows me to surf/browse the internet from within foobar2000?

Cheers

Jared

I don't understand the use case here. Why not use a web browser?

foo_run?  http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_run
Create a keyboard shortcut then to open a browser with your site...

Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.

Let's be happy that even though foobar2000 development doesn't follow that law it didn't get replaced yet.

It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.

Emacs is a great OS yet it lacks a decent text editor

Replace 'read mail' by 'make coffee'. (Emacs can. It does have some useless features though, like vi mode, which even Bill Joy doesn't use.)

As I said, we use a very basic web interface to access our cameras. see example of what i'm casing below;



Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Have you considered doing the opposite and have foobar2000 run inside a web browser?

Perhaps you could use foo_httpcontrol and modify one of its browser templates to include your camera interface. A simple iframe would do the trick.
