With the exception of foo_uie_biography, none of those components require internet access so of course they still work.

But if you want to keep up accessing online services in the year 2017, you need to use something a bit newer than 16 years old. Most websites these days are enforcing the use of https through protocols that XP doesn't support.

Hmmm, a very bizarre statement. I've got everything I need running fine on XP. Even foobar and a ton of plugins, VSTs, etc.:

foo_dynamic_range
foo_playcount
foo_quicksearch
foo_ui_columns
foo_uie_albumlist
foo_uie_biography
foo_uie_elplaylist
foo_uie_esplaylist
foo_uie_lyrics3
foo_uie_panel_splitter
foo_uie_vis_channel_spectrum
foo_uie_vis_peakmeter_spectrum
foo_uie_wsh_panel_mod
foo_wave_seekbar


All works great.

Except of course images in foo_uie_biography.

I keep an older comp with XP and it suites my needs perfectly. Not going to "let it go" because someone says so because "nothing works" on it lmao. ;)

XP to me represents the last version of windows that didn't really have too much anti-user stuff in it. Now, it seems everything is going anti-user. Windows 10, Mozilla, etc., all (try) to take away power and control from users while claiming that things have been "improved," lmao you can't get more Orwellian than that. ;)

Anyways this is going way off topic. Of course I don't expect you or any developer to take time and effort to make any of your stuff work on XP, that would be silly. Just wanting to try and see if there's a way to get image download working again in foo_uie_biography for last.fm. :)

For those that continue to have the handshake issue (as I did), I have written an alternative component: foo_scrobble. It transparently manages the scrobble cache (there's no need to manually submit it) and should work across network reconnects without problems. It also makes use of last.fm's newer submission API and does not require your login credentials.

That is great! I was contemplating to write a replacement for a long time, but was too lazy to actually do anything about it =)
May I suggest you to open a new thread for your component, so as to keep all the feedback, bug reports and feature requests separate from the old component?
PS: And thanks for making it open source!

Pretty much nothing works on XP - the obvious exception being foobar itself.

It's about time people let it go.  :o

The component is essentially obsolete now. You can get the same functionality with jscript panel and one of marc2003's scripts.

Doesn't work on WinXP. ;)

Thanks very much for the reply, but I was looking for kan's fix, not the original component (although it probably doesn't hurt to have it available here).

Anyways, I figured out how to do the hex edit on it and text is working again. But like others have said, images are no longer downloading. I tried the "Provide artwork to other artwork viewers" option but it didn't work for me. I wonder if there is a similar hex edit trick that can be used for images.

Version 0.4.2.4

So the mapping would be:
Shuffle (tracks), Shuffle (folders), Random, Repeat (track) -> track mode
Shuffle (albums), Default, Repeat (playlist) -> album mode
??

Uninstall MacType, problem solved! (hope so)
Thank you all <3
