It freezes on me after I point it at my collection. 5 minutes and still nothing.

I will try to address the error but I really think it's some odd problem with some files in my folders. I've got over 1000 folders in my collection, so this might take some time

Another thing that's kinda strange is the fact that when I start the program for the first time it takes some time to load and is really slow and takes a lot of time to react on any input. When I close it and restart it directly again it works properly and smooth.

Do you maybe have a very old PC? What's your hardware setup?


Define very old  It's by no means a supercomputer anymore but I wouldn't call it very old.
AMD 2600+, 1GB RAM, nForce2 motherboard, nVidia 6200a graphics card (256 MB).

Like Saberrider, the alpha1 used to crash when launched without arguments, but the alpha2 works great, it seems you found the bug.

I'm thinking about removing the alpha support, because I don't really see any reason why someone should have transparent covers. Or can anyone explain me, why you need alpha support for covers?

Hey Chronial

Your cover flow looks really nice. Can't wait for foobar version.

Perhaps you could make the flow speed adjustable? If I hold arrow button down, even my core2duo goes to 100% usage and I need to wait for the covers to load. Nice it's using both cores though.

Also I'd like to second the request for antialiasing and other eyecandy

i have my folders listed as %artist%\%album%\%discnumber%

therefore i'm getting duplicate images for multi disc albums. Is there a way you could work around this? or do i need to change my dir structure

you could name your tracks like [%disc%][%tracknumber%. ]%title%  (just an example), that way you wouldn't need the %discnumber% folder, and your tracks would sill be grouped by the disc number.
the result would be

Artist\Album\
101. track1.mp3
102. track2.mp3
103. track3.mp3
201. bonus1.mp3
202. bonus2.mp3

Chronial, that is amazing. Have you considered running a newer version of Windows in VM ware or something?

I must say, foobar will be complete for me if someone develops CoverFlow for it.

I cannot wait.

Hi!

Maybe, they exchange their knowledge and make only one component?
It would be easier for us as user.

Agreed! I reallllllly love Chronials cover flow spiral thing he had going on. That was awesome, and it'd be sweet in foobar. Hopefully having a cover flow component already available doesn't discourage you Chronial, cause you have some good ideas for yours .

I don't think the one component thing is going to happen. I'm writing this component to gain experience with opengl, the win32api and so on. I guess bubbleguuum's motives are similar.

But well - the night is late - I'm going to sleep. But there is some beta-testing to do. Please try it out, find all the bugs (if there are any ) and also tell me if you experience performance drops compared to the standalone version.

(Don't look for the "Playlist Mode" - it doesn't exist. You also need to recreate the panel for changed Settings to take effect)

Nothing appears for me either. I also don't know what to put in the database query :S. Thank you for releasing a beta tho .

EDIT:

Oh, I am using Foobar 0.9.5 beta 8 with Panels UI 0.14.12 on Windows XP if that matters .

It doesn't display anything if the filter does return nothing. Just try entering "1" as the filter.
Here is the language for the filter (taken from autoplaylist help)
Quote
Query format:

Simple search:
* "<any string>" - returns only items that have all words from specified string in their metadata / tech infos / file path.

Advanced search:
* "<field> HAS <string>" - returns only items that have all words from <string> in metadata field named <field>, e.g. "title HAS blah".
* "<field> IS <string>" - returns only items where (at least one) metadata field <field> is equal to <string>, e.g. "artist IS blah".
* "* HAS <string>" - same as simple search, but can be combined using logical operators (see below).
* "<pattern1> AND <pattern2>" - performs logical AND operation on two search patterns, e.g. "artist IS blah AND title HAS blah". You can also enclose patterns in parentheses to control order of logical operations, e.g. "(artist IS blah) AND (title HAS blah)".
* "<pattern1> OR <pattern2>" - same as above, but with OR logical operation.
* "NOT <pattern>" - inverts results of <pattern>, e.g. "NOT comment HAS sucks".
* "<field> GREATER <number>", "<field> LESS <number>", "<field> EQUAL <number>" - performs integral number comparison between <field> value and <number>, e.g. "date LESS 1998".

Note 1 : <field> and <string> in HAS/IS operations should be enclosed in double quotation marks (") if it includes spaces.
Note 2 : If <field> in HAS/IS/GREATER/LESS/EQUAL includes at least one of #$% characters, it will be treated as title formatting string, e.g. " "%__codec%" IS MP3". Using title formatting string instead of simple field name will decrease search speed and break multiple field handling in IS operator.
Note 3 : All search operations are non-case sensitive. All operator words *must* be uppercase.

Seems to be working well; fast load (+600 albums) and no apparent slow downs when it's running.

Here: "Realease of DC and RC failed" then "release device context failed" then "could not release hWnd" and nothing appears.

But I'm keeping on testing


It was bubblegum plugin interfering, sorry.

Edit Is it designed to show the red X and couldn't load image if the directory has no image? Cause currently,  I have got a lot of them for no reason.

Edit 2 In fact, when closing, this two pop up appear: "release device context failed" then "could not release hWnd" (not linked to bubblegum plugin: I deleted it from my component directory to test if it was because of it)(but the displaying panel works normally)

Edit 3 works fine for the moment on a huge collection, very nice CPU usage: 0 when stopped and around 25% when using it on a 2,8Ghz. Already fine settings. If you have time to continue to play with this plugin, it could turn out to be really nice.
