It would be really cool to open a topic to share these animated text models (templates)...

Yes, it would be very cool to share all the designs.

Let's see if pqyt discovers a way to access the same information that Foobar's peak meters access to be able to create VU Metter and that kind of crazy stuff in a personalized way.

Very nice component, I made a template with it to rotate the cover, it works very well, I hope to get the color settings of foobar2000 will be better, and also, with the eslyric lyrics component, how do I make the lyrics appear in the panel?
It's great !!. It looks very pretty and dynamic. Great how the covers and the cookie design of the CD change.
Yes, it's based on HTML+CSS rotation and shadow effects, currently it can't follow the color changes of foobar2000, for good results you need its support, and you need to have a complete cover and disc image, otherwise it can only load the default image.

It turned out great on you. I just noticed the shadow detail in the profile of the disk. That has to be impossible to do with anything other than CSS. It is the freedom that these markup and web programming languages ​​give.

In my case I have all the covers inside the album folders. I think it is better that you have everything like this, embedded covers increase the size of the files and if you want to modify the cover you have to do it in all the audio files.

Let's see if I can later put in the code that I used to put the covers with a fade effect between them.

Why not? By inserting the component into the layout, I can view and listen to any sites including this one. The only question is managing links to sites.

Oh yeah. Of course you could show everything you want.

Also a system that enters the title of the song in a search, and that an AI makes you a kind of article talking about the song (of all the information and web pages that Wikipedia, discongs, google, blogs, reddit has found). With the day it was recorded, how it was recorded, the history of the composition, photos, etc.

It would have to be an online AI, or a local AI that is capable of doing all that. I don't know if there will be anything now. But that detail would be brutal if it appeared with every song you listen to.

The crazy things that can be done are almost endless.

Something curious happens with the Text Display sample. If I play a track, then change the playlist and then press Stop, the text displayed changes to "NEIN". This happens either by selecting a different playlist or by changing the Library Viewer Selection playlist with Album List, Refacets etc.

MP3 / Re: LAME fastest encoding(-q 9) gives better quality than the slowest encoding(-q 0)
Last post by john33 -
lame -b32 --cbr -q 9 --gain -3 -m s --resample 44.1 --bitwidth 32 sample.wav qval9.mp3

As MPEG 1 Layer 3 has neither been made nor tuned for this bitrate, and as you futher decrease quality by using -m s, there is not much reason to argue about the influence of the -q values.

In the recent weeks I really wonder why someone likes to use such low mp3 bitrates. There are better codecs around if one really needs this. But they are also not meant for music at this bitrate!

note: well, the example would hurt my ears even in lossless quality  ;D

When I switched to the 64-bit version I had to use the Qsearch component of Marc2k3 which was much more limited since you could not program the searches and it is no longer supported. But searching by %album% or %title% worked fine even if they had double quotes.

I don't think that's right at all. Using IS did not work at all and using HAS only worked some of the time depending on where the double quotes were, It could not be relied upon.

I did update my own component with workarounds using $stricmp/$strstr but that was only in the last day after reading this thread..
