The use case was setting the Output device and the Preset via online controller.
SMP would read a txt file with the selected device/preset, and set them after calling a custom SMP main menu.

Having a txt file as intermediate file allowed to pass arbitrary argument, since there is no other way to do it. If the user has to write the txt file... then there is no point for the  "online controller" part at all. The problem is not only the server component,  but all the ecosystem thought to be closed in many ways which clearly complicates easy tasks.

As workaround I'm adding files to a dummy playlist (CmdLine + foobar2000.exe /add), whose filenames are the command names selected from dropdown lists XD. Then I call a SMP main menu (CmdLine + /X) which parses the commands and set the preset/device according to the dummy filenames, then deletes the playlist and switches to the previous one. It's ridiculous to do this... but works.

foobar2000 mobile / Re: foobar2000 mobile files taking up more space on the device than they should?

not by the looks of it. when i look at the album folders on my phone through the "foobar2000 media folder" section, all that's in them is the mp3 files. i assume the album art's just been added as metadata. you might be onto something though.

anyway, since i posted this thread i managed to cut down my music library to fit on my phone by getting rid of stuff i didn't need, so it's mostly no longer a problem for me. still a weird problem that it might be good to get to the bottom of though.
You will need to look in those folders with a separate file browser app to see all files in your media library. Foobar2000 will only show the media files. Just a few folders will tell you if these images have been copied. They are going to be in the Album sub folder, usually named folder.jpg or cover.jpg, something along those lines.

oh, thank you. i didn't know that was the case. yeah, i just looked in those folders with a different file browser, and there are no image files to be seen.
Very strange, there has to be something to show different sizes. Anything hidden, especially images like AlbumArtSmall.jpg, etc? Otherwise I have no other ideas.

Well I reproduced the crashes on windows 10 in artificial scenarios. fb2k 1.6. SMP 1.4.2-dev+06f421e8. Try closing foobar2000. Delete the author key and value or rename package.json to packagee.json. Crashes when try & open foobar2000. I guess this is what regor is talking about. I tested with the bio package.json. Note if foobar2000 is open when you make the changes it'll likely save a valid file on restart & so may not crash. Crash dump below.

Not sure if this is the same crash as reported by Sergey77 for which I believe he sent you the crash dump.
Ofc if you have the packaged loaded within foobar, the json gets rewritten while foobar is loaded (thus reverting the edit). You have to either restart or unload the package, edit the files, and then open the package manager again. And yes, mine happens when opening the package manager. Have not tried the startup case though.

This works with errors (no version)

EDIT: Following WilB report

package.json -> packagee.json
Popup: (No crash)

Corrupted package: can't find `package.json`

package.json -> (empty file)
No Popup. SMP panel has been removed without notice. (not the script, the entire panel!)

Thanks for the dump! Yours is a different case from regor's though, since the one you have is a crash on startup.
