i) There is a option "Lock display type" in the context menu, I don't understand what this option means;

ii) When I'm playing a song, sometimes the console will display: Location not parsable: "Z:\music\Cover\Artist\****.jpg", reason: Unsupported file format.

iii) The images extension vary from .jpg, .npg to .gif, I don't know in what situation will the file extension be, does this depend on the images on the internet resource? and avoid overwriting the files?

i) Biography view will automatically switch Artist/Album mode if there are no information of the current mode.
The option prevent this behaviour.
ii) This message is sent from foobar2000 core, not Biography view.
iii) depends on internet resource.

the new version crashes on my system while using one of the two context menu options (using foobar v1):

Confirmed.
foobar2000 crashes immediately when one of these both context menu entries are called.

Thanks for the reportings. fixed.

Sorry, I was too busy from last August to November, so I have forgotten your message.
(but I hope that you don't expect my reply because I'm not good at English.
In paticular, it is often difficult to respond to feature request, because I can't promise to add it before considering details.)

I think your request sounds good, so I will add it(but I can't promise).

Could you send me the crash report(by mail, PM or foobar2000's crash reporter)?

ssenna,

Nothing created in Crash reports directory  sorry - I  have a CUI tab with Biography & lyrics, if I play a song  Foobar shuts down - If I  rename/remove foo_uie_biography from components it all okay and lyrics work.  Never experienced any crashes on the 3 version tho have not been using it long.

Happy to supply any info you need. If you or someone can guide me.  Appreciate your response and was really enjoing the  2 plugins prior to this.

That's okay, I just thought it was lost, so i resent it as a PM

I was excited to see you here, so at least I expected some kind of response.

I know my request isn't much related to the biography component in general, but the function that uses last.fm API are similar, so I figured it would probably be easy to implement  I hope you will consider it.

Thank you for all your work - It's highly appreciated!

In my case, plug-in which caused 20 second lag between songs (no response from Foobar), was "foo_w7shell.dll" version 0.2.9.1. older versions did not check.

Translated with google.

Is it possible to add next ability to this great plugin - connect to the Internet through a proxy server?

good idea, if proxy doesn't understand ICY so you can't use main foobar network settings

I noticed "run external script" had been added to the "available source list", but I don't know how to setup, could anyone offer an example? Thanks.

Running Windows 7, using parental controls for an account -- allowing only foobar2000 and firefox w/last.fm allowed, my biography view panel is empty.  Has anyone else tried this plugin on a Win7 PC w/a profile that's restricted to running only certain apps?  What needs to be in the allowed list?

Thanks!

I can't get this plugin to work.  I can see my album art via the "Built-In Artwork Reader", but I cannot see anything from last.fm. 

I'm using the latest plugin release (Biography View 0.4.0.3). Foobar v1.0.  No proxy.

Where is the data actually being retrieved?  Is it the same as http://www.last.fm/music/%artist% ?

Do I need to configure where/what server to retrieve the data from?  I'm not getting any of the bio info.

Sorry for my cluelessness but there's not much documentation on this plugin and any help would be appreciated.

From the Debug version of the plugin:

Code: [Select]
Biography: prepare query 0 0 [15:15:50:328]
Biography: start query [15:15:50:328]
Biography: start remote_access 1 [15:15:50:328]
Biography: end remote_access 0 [15:15:51:296]
Biography: completion <= 16220792, 1 [15:15:51:296]
Biography: receive completion_notify <= 0, 1 2098222
Biography: start query [15:15:51:296]
Biography: start remote_access 0 [15:15:51:296]
Biography: end remote_access 0 [15:15:52:296]
Biography: completion <= 16220152, 0 [15:15:52:296]
Biography: receive completion_notify <= 0, 0 2098222

Your files needs to be correctly tagged, and additionaly you can change how thay are sent over in "Search Keyword" located in Biography preferences > Last.fm branch under Artist and Album tabs

If you tag your files with foobar musicbrainz tagger click on "use mbid..." for perfect match

Bleh, figured out my problem.  I had ws.audioscrobbler.com redirected to localhost in my host file! Knew something wasn't making sense.

Thanks for giving me the server addy, without it I'd of been pulling my hair out.

Ssenna: May I ask for some feature request?

There´s a great scrip out for Library Tree see http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st& p=688168://http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums...t& p=688168://http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums...t& p=688168 and follow-up posts

The problem (as described there) is, that LibTree view is faster to analyze tags and filters than they are written by Biography View.

A solution would be to write the last.fm tags permanently so the second time a track is played it would work.

Even better would be, if Library tree would allow for some kind of timeout before analyzing certain filters (more complicated to implement I imagine).

Each of both solutions would be great, if you could realize.


P.S. increasing the number of similar artists to 10 would be awsome, too.

edit: typos

You can do this with custom_db: 

Fields


Actions


What you get:


You can also right click, Utilities > Get Artist Info to write permanent tags, but it isn't automatic.

Do you have provide formatting turned on in the bio panel? Otherwise it should work.

could someone tell me how I can make it use allmusic instead of last.fm?

I listen to a lot of music from the '60s and '70s and most of the time last.fm doesn't have any info on the albums, whilst allmusic has at least a short review available.

or it would be even better if the developer made it an option in future builds..

other that this, it's a terrific component. thank you!
