Is there a way to make the artwork display cyclically through the images in a selected music folder?
I have been on this very quest since v2.0 came out, and the short answer is, no, there is nothing available right now that can do what the Album Art panel does.

That being said, the JScript Panel 3 has a sample available that can cycle through album art (I think it's called "Thumbs"), but the cycle-times are fixed, and it does not offer cross-fading transitions of the images.  Also, there is no default image option, so when nothing is selected in the playlist, the panel is blank.  (These limits can probably be overcome if you can do you own Java script coding, but aside from that, there is just the default settings.)

This issue is exactly the reason I am staying with the 32-bit version of foobar2000, for the time being - the Album Art Panel still works fine with it.

I have recently converted to foobar2000 v2.0 [x64].  In the process, I lost the use of albumart which used to do pretty well what I wanted it to do.

I note that Columns_UI has an albumart type component.  I can only select folder, back, CD and Artist.  Each section is configurable, e.g. I can name which images are candidates for the nominated section - folder.jpg, front.png and even *.png which will find the first .png file in the folder and display it.  I also note that if I click on the displayed artwork, Columns_UI will display the first image in the folder.

However I could not find an option that allows me to cycle through the several images that exist in most of my music albums.

Is there a way to make the artwork display cyclically through the images in a selected music folder?  Two places I can think of that would work for me is to use one of the existing sections and cycle through if *.png and *.jpg are nominated or if there is a fifth section which cycles through *.jpg and *.png files.  It would also be nice to change the display time of each file.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Did I install WASAPI Component properly

You don't need to install any WASAPI component at all. WASAPI shared is built in to v1.6.0+ and native support for exclusive mode was added in v1.6.7. So even if you're avoiding 2.0, you should have it anyway.

See the Preferences here for picking a device with exclusive mode...

I have found that WASAPI (or the default driver for my RME ADI2 DAC fs) doesn't dynamically change the sampling rate, but apparently ASIO does. Is ASIO also integrated into Foobar?

Assuming you have standard installs, your old profile with original configuration/playlists should still be available to use. Check %appdata% in windows explorer. You should have foobar2000 and foobar2000-v2 folders. The foobar2000 folder is the original.

Thanks for the reply! Isn't the old folder corrupted somehow? It's worth a try I suppose.

Edit: It did not work.

Thank you, I knew those settings were somewhere, I forgot about expanding the selections nested in playback.

Any thoughts on Push vs Event? I have an RME ADI2 DAC FS.

UpdateFileInfoFromJSON  is obviously not for updating radio streams. It's always going to fail on playlist entries that are streams as per the very first line in the docs...

This method is for writing tags to files.

I know less than nothing about components like mtags but I'd assume they handle tagging updates transparently from fb2k/3rd party taggers without playback being affected?? Any issues with them not behaving as you expect need to be reported to the relevant dev.

I followed the instructions, and it is listed in the "installed components" section, but in the past I had to select it from some output setting somewhere. I don't see that option anywhere.

I just want to make sure I have done everything I need to make it work.
