Antiskip or Party mode
Hello everyone, i was wondering if there was an option or component or something that can prevent tracks from being accidentally stopped/skipped.
I'll be using Foobar to play music at a party, and i'd rather not have an accidental keypress mess everything up.

Google has failed me, i searched for antiskip and party mode, i'm not sure what other names it could go by.

Thanks,
Andrew

I thought lock would be a more appropriate keyword. Google on foobar2000 lock:

It seems you can lock a playlist using foo_utils but there aren’t any ways to lock the controlling buttons, unless I overlooked something. The only way would be to remove the buttons from the UI when you don’t want them to be pressed at all. Is that an option to you?

Yes! That is definitely good enough
I went for the second one, foo_playlist_attributes. It can lock just about every setting except the control buttons, which i'll disable.

Thanks a lot!
