3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Georgia-ReBORN - A Clean foobar2000 Theme
Last post by TT -
Hello Friends,

the awaited big update is here and I can proudly tell you Georgia-ReBORN got even better!

This was all possible due to @WilB's amazing library and biography scripts, a big shout out and thank you to @WilB, be sure to also thank him, I'm sure he would appreciate it!



Out of the box the scripts are already great, but I have modified the library and biography to fit the overall Georgia-ReBORN design.
Besides the 8 existing built-in designs, the library has it's own default Georgia-ReBORN design.
For the White and Black theme @MordredKLB 's awesome dynamic color changer is available in all library designs.
Additionally I have implemented some really cool features, options and changes, see the full detailed changelog below.
The library got even cooler 8) , there are so many options you can play for hours with it!

The classical tree view can be changed swiftly by right clicking for the context menu and choose "Show album art".
You can switch back to the default tree view by right click and choose "Tree view".

When album art is active, new options are now available in Options > Library > Album art.
The layout feature is not available for "List view + album covers/artist photos" and "Flow mode".
For convenience, when album art is active, you can easily change the layout by right clicking and choose:
Change layout to full width or Change layout to normal width depending on the current state.
Another cool feature is the dynamic thumbnail resizing, thumbnail size will change dynamically according
to the foobar player size.

If you want to display artist photos in the library, you need to link your path to your biography directory.
Go to File > Preferences > Display and under Album art click on the Artist tab. Here you need to set
your full path, e.g: E:\PortableApps\foobar2000\profile\yttm\art_img$cut(%artist%,1)%artist%*
If you now fetch the images from the biography, it will automatically update your library with the photos.
You can easily switch the view from albums to artists. If album art or flow mode is active, right click
in the library > Show artists, to go back to default view open again the context menu and choose Show albums.

In the latest library version you can add your own custom view pattern, for that go to the library,
click on the settings menu ... and navigate to Configure views.
At the bottom, click on the Add new button and paste your custom view pattern, e.g:

$stripprefix(%album artist%)|%date% %album%|[[%discnumber%.]%tracknumber%. ][%track artist% - ]%title%
$swapprefix(%album artist%)|%date% %album%|[[%discnumber%.]%tracknumber%. ][%track artist% - ]%title%

You can also change the view order by clicking the Up and Down buttons located at the bottom.

The biography also has some new features, check out the options in the top menu.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Updated to WilB's latest Library v2.2.0:
- Heavily modified Library to fit theme design -> Georgia-ReBORN edition
- 8 designs plus exclusive custom made Georgia-ReBORN design (default)
- Improved Georgia-ReBORN's tree design
- Added Mordred's awesome dynamic color changer in all library designs for White and Black theme
- Added Now playing visual indicator, library has the same design logic as playlist
- Added dynamic thumbnail resizing based on player size
- Added full width option for album art mode, flow mode is always in full width
- Custom view pattern support
- Many new options

Updated to WilB's latest Biography v1.2.0:
- Heavily modified Biography to fit theme design -> Georgia-ReBORN edition
- New filmstrip feature
- Many new biography options added into top menu

- Developer tools hidden by default, can be enabled in Options -> Settings
- Added Option "Show pause on album cover" in player controls
- Added contiguous Ctrl+Shift playlist selection
- Added FAQ and updated the Github page

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Due to the big changes in the file and folder structure, you must install a new clean portable ( or standard ) foobar installation.
Hopefully in future updates, there won't be any big changes and you can just replace the profile folder, sorry for the inconvenience. 

And finally, you can download the update as usual HERE.

Feedback and bug reports are welcome!

Thank you

General - (fb2k) / Re: Unplayed Albums
Last post by marc2k3 -
is there currently a way to do this which is autoplaylist compatible?

Nope. That will always be track based.

I guess facets can't handle %last_played_enhanced% field so trying the Library Tree suggestion above might be your easier route (assuming customising the playcount field is easy and doesn't require editing the script).

foo_uie_sql_tree or the murky world of scripting with Spider Monkey Panel/JScript Panel are the harder ways to do it!

Last post by marc2k3 -
Unfortunately not. You can use file operations for copying/moving files using the same patterns as the converter but you'd have to filter the playlist first (CTRL+F)

%__encoding% IS lossy for copying and NOT %__encoding% IS lossy for converting.

But doing this would lose the original %list_index%.

Last post by marc2k3 -
I really wish Microsoft made the OS theme switch affect all programs. It's absolute insanity for every software having to artifically create support for this fad.

It would be so easy for them to do it as well. The high contrast themes are evidence of that.

Bit off topic but anyone tried windows 11 yet? What they've done to checkboxes is an abomination. :/

I can get the albums displayed in a playlist column or facets (re: Shakey above) but is there currently a way to do this which is autoplaylist compatible?

I tried
Library > album list > filter by %last_played_enhanced% MISSING

but results are still track based and not album grouped.
"Library Tree" album list can apply filters and maintain album grouping, it already has a 'never played' preset.

Yes, you're right, everything works, I restarted the player and the mat left. Now another problem is that the search does not go up a level in the search, from the subfolder to the "artist" folder from the two-disc edition. that is, 2 levels up. It rises to one without any problems if the "images" is located in the "album" folder

I think you've already understood what I'm doing - I have 2 panels, one for displaying scans, the other for displaying photos of a musical band

FLAC / Re: New FLAC compression improvement
Last post by ktf -
Preset -9 is equivalent to -b 4096 -m -l 12 -e -r 6 -A "tukey(5e-1);partial_tukey(2);punchout_tukey(3);irlspost-p(3)", so it already includes -e.

irlspost-p takes the result from evaluating tukey(5e-1);partial_tukey(2);punchout_tukey(3) and iterates on it, with the final iteration also being evaluated with -p. Using -9p gives only very small gains as irlspost-p already uses p (and irls usually results in the smallests file)

If you want even better compression, I'd recommend either using -9 -r 8 in the case of electronic music (some chiptune can really gain a lot by using this) or -9 -A "tukey(5e-1);partial_tukey(2);punchout_tukey(3);irlspost-p(10)" or an even higher number for irlspost-p. I haven't seen much improvement with more than 10 iterations, but perhaps this is different for hi-res material.
