Thanks, the problem was reproduced. The problem is that those tracks are being reported as added to the media library multiple times. This will be handled differently by different library viewers and won't cause duplication in all. Be patient while it is investigated on foobar2000's side.

The current releases of Columns UI and Album list panel also aren't optimised for foobar2000 2.0; the next releases will have better performance in foobar2000 2.0 more generally.

I thank you very much of your clarifying response.
 
I stay very quiet knowing that you are in the process of solving the problem.
 
Until it is solved, I am opening foobar with the external hard drive on and with the option "Rescan on startup" disabled so that it does not have 50 minutes waiting by monitoring the hard drive.

My music library is entirely mp3 files.  I want to change the default title format script for the status bar to display the stereo mode of the playing file by adding 'mp3_stereo_mode'.  The script below worked in Columns_UI v0.5.1, but not in the current 2.0.0 alpha1.

$if(%ispaused%,Paused,Playing) | %codec% | %bitrate% kbps | %samplerate% Hz | $caps($if2($info(mp3_stereo_mode),%channels%)) | %playback_time%[ / %length%]

How do I get this to work again in the latest Columns_UI?  Thanks.

Thanks.  It does work.  I forgot to check the 'Show status bar' box.

Very idiotic question. I'm installing the latest version of foobar and want to use Columns UI in Windows 11. In the past, all the components were DLL files -- including past versions of Columns -- but when I try to put the new component in, it's another file type that doesn't work*. I've looked all over for a solution.

* Under "type" it says "foobar2000 Component" instead of "Application extension" like the rest.

I haven't seriously altered my foobar2000 configuration in about 15 years but with my new computer my copy won't work anymore. I've done forum searches but I can't rule out that this has been asked.

Give the file a .zip extension right after the .fb2k-component and see if it finds/installs it then.  Be sure you have the correct version of the file for the new version of Foobar.

That (giving a ZIP extension) did it! Replaced foo_playlist_tree with the newer Playlist Tree Mod, downloaded Azrael and Columns, and I've got my old setup back, and that finishes the computer.

Thank you very much.

Very happy to hear MusicMusic works on optimization for fb2kv2.

I know this is probably a little off-topic, but any plans to update the album list panel to 64bit support, I am using the latest git build of Columns UI, but I really miss an album list panel.

Thanks in advance and sorry about the little off-topic question.

Thank you for the x64 version that I'm setting up now. This is really appreciated!
Is there a way to have the background a solid black instead of the Windows system dark grey?

Adding a "Tab stack" causes the foobar2000 to crash.
I sent a crash report.

No problem :)

The playlist view etc. background colour can be configured in preferences in the normal way. But if you mean the toolbars etc. background colour, that is not configurable.

Thanks, reproduced – will be fixed soon.

Hi,

Please give more details including:

- version of foobar2000
- 32-bit or 64-bit
- size of media library
- whether any third-party panels in use

I'd suggest starting from a new portable installation and then working out what causes the slow start-up as you configure it.

I adjusted the monitor that shows Foobar to have a truer black level and it looks great. Thanks again!

When you switch to another Playlist View (JSP3/JS Playlist), it will start up immediately and be ready to play.

I'm sorry many times. :-\
Apparently "Filter" seems to be the cause.
No problem if you don't show it

Thanks, I can see the problem. A full refresh of the panel should be fast (e.g. switching layout presets), but at start-up it does a lot of unnecessary scroll bar updates while the media library is loading, which is very slow it seems. It will be fixed for the next version.

I can only see the Playlists tab flashing there – is it the built-in playlist switcher or a different panel?
