Addressing right click playlist functions from the commandline
Hi,

hope someone can help with a commandline query...

I'm trying to load a few tracks into a playlist and then convert them but I can't get the switch to work.

So far:

Code: [Select]
foobar2000.exe "C:\Test Recording2.mp3" "C:\Test Recording.flac"

Will load the two clips into a playlist and start playing.

But how can I address the Convert to > a saved preset called "WAVtest"?

Going by the wiki page:
  /command:<menu command> - invokes the specified main menu command
  /playlist_command:<context menu command> - invokes the specified context menu command on current playlist selection
  /playing_command:<context menu command> - invokes the specified context menu command on currently played track
  /context_command:<context menu command> <files> - invokes the specified context menu command on the specified files

Code: [Select]
foobar2000.exe /context_command:WAVTest "C:\Test Recording2.mp3" "C:\Test Recording.flac"

Doesn't work.

Also is it possible to run the command Replaygain > Scan per-file track gain via the commandline?

Thanks in advance

Found this topic on addressing volume controls from the command line.

[a href='index.php?showtopic=94883']Volume control command line[/a]

So foobar2000.exe "/command:Up" will increase the volume

But none of these variations work:
foobar2000.exe "/command:WAVtest" "C:\Test Recording2.mp3" "C:\Test Recording.flac"
foobar2000.exe "/context_command:WAVtest" "C:\Test Recording2.mp3" "C:\Test Recording.flac"
foobar2000.exe "/playlist_command:WAVtest" "C:\Test Recording2.mp3" "C:\Test Recording.flac"
foobar2000.exe "C:\Test Recording2.mp3" "C:\Test Recording.flac" "/playlist_command:WAVtest"

What's missing?!

You could try the foo_runcmd component. With it you can launch foobar2000 with the following command line:
Code: [Select]
foobar2000.exe "/runcmd-files=<pattern>" <files>

Replace <files> with the list of files you want to convert and <pattern> with a pattern for your converter preset. "Convert/WAVtest" might work. You can use the "Run Command" GUI to test the pattern.
