Guys, I have the following problem:

I have close to 1,000 lossless APE / FLAC / WAV / WV / M4A albums in a folder called: P: \ HD13 \ APE FLAC WV M4A \ 16 Bits \

When organizing my lossless audios to use with the Dune Music Manager program, for my media server / tank DUNE HD SOLO LITE 4K, I'm encountering some problems:

1. I have single lossless files with cue, and files with separate tracks with cue.
2. The program is not showing GENRE or DATE of the albums, because it takes this information from the lossless and not from the cue that is with the REM command.

I did a test here with foobar2k and I got through inserting the cue in the lossless APE / FLAC / WAV / WV / M4A files and I noticed that it made the embedded of these cue also updated the TAG GENRE and the TAG DATE, only has a serious problem, I have to do this manually through the commands: Utilities / Edit Cuesheet / Enabled Embedded Cuff In This File and Load Cuesheet and OK, because I do not know how to use foobar2k in command line and I do not even know if this is possible.

When searching a lot in google I found a line command script with the progame TAG.EXE, but it is old and the script that I copied to make the changes recursively had an option -f that gave error, probably the script is old and this option is now another, and since there is not much tutorial on how to use this program I was not able to use it.

So what I need to organize my lossless audios is something like:

1. Read this folders with almost 1,000 lossless audios (APE / FLAC / WV / M4A and maybe WAV) and insert the tags of these CUE files for these lossless audios, but not manually, but in batch, read to folders and subfolders, find this files only LOSSLESS and its respective CUE and change the TAGS of these files.

2. Or use a program like TAG.EXE, inside a command line script that reads folders and subfolders, find the unique LOSSLESS files and their respective CUE and change the TAGS and / or embedded CUE file for these LOSSLESS unique.

3. Or I can use FOOBAR2K in command line, for the command that I executed manually, Utilities / Edit Cuesheet / Enabled Embedded Cuessheet In This File and Load Cuesheet and OK, for all the LOSSLESS files of the aforementioned folder, doing the embedded from CUE files to the LOSSLESS of all subfolders in the above folder: P: \ HD13 \ APE FLAC WV M4A \ 16 Bits \.

Thank you for your attention, and I hope one of the audio masters of this renowned forum can solve this problem by bringing a viable solution.

P.S. They wanted to excuse my English, I live in Brazil and I used google translator, I know that it is not the best solution, but it was the only one I found at the moment.

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
