That's a great tip, thanks !
Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work in my case.
A word about my collection : I don't have any %album% tags, I use other custom tags.
I'm trying to sort by %title%, so I have replaced the contents of "Sort Order - ALBUM" by just "%title%" and made sure that sorting by album was selected.
But no, I think the js script just keeps looking for an %album% tag, and since it doesn't find it, it just displays my whole collection as one single item called "SINGLES".

rt-click at the top and select 'panel properties'.

In that window you can copy your facets sorting title format into album/artist/genre fields.

btw, SMPanel should work fine with 7. Its other big advantage is it is supported by TheQwertiest, while JSpanel is slowly dying I believe.

Ah, that's more like it :) It works indeed ! Thanks mjm716.
I'll begin testing right away. I just wish it had more sorting options than just album, artist and genre. One point for Facets ! lol
PS : no, I still have Windows 7 SP1 ;)

The deviantart sources are old and only work with the WSH panel (which itself is only useful for XP or other fossils).

If you did a fresh install of JSPanel component, there should be a samples folder here: %profile%\user-components\foo_jscript_panel\samples\js-smooth
there should be a text file: JS Smooth Browser.txt

create a new JSPanel in your layout or scratchbox and then paste the text of that file into the panel.

btw, spider monkey panel is the newest version of those panels and should give the best performance. It will have samples\JS Smooth Browser.txt in it's user component folder also.

Thanks. I have followed the instructions, but so far I can't seem to install JS Smooth Browser :

Code: [Select]
Error: JScript Panel v2.1.8 (JS Smooth Browser v20151114-1630-340 by Br3tt aka Falstaff >> http://br3tt.deviantart.com)
JavaScript compilation error:
Syntax error
File: C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000 (test)\js_br3tt\jssb\js\JScommon.js
Line: 540, Col: 8
    }; else {

I have foobar2000 1.4, JS Panel 2.1.8, and latest JS Browser from here : https://www.deviantart.com/br3tt/art/JS-Smooth-Browser-571376160
And of course the js_br3tt folder that came with JS Browser is inside my foobar2000 folder.
Any hints ?

Facets is the wrong tool for the job, for the reasons already discussed - no caching and poor performance.

Try replacing the facets cover display with "JS Smooth Browser" which was originally written by Falstaff and is a sample script in WSH/JS/Spider Monkey panels. It features caching and the performance is superb (and highly customizable) - I use it with external images in folders on external drive and it displays with virtually no delays. It has smooth scrolling/ctrl-click resizing with mouse wheel and other nice features.

Wish we saw more of Falstaff around here.

I was not expecting you to try, as your site only has compiles for audio... if you can do it, then it would be really great!

If you do it, then great. Otherwise, I will just keep my configuration.

Thanks in advance for the time taken!

best regards,

There are some relatively recent ffmpeg compiles around that claim XP compatibility, but certainly one I looked at requires SSE. Unfortunately it looks like it is quite a lot of work to put together as apparently some of the included libraries no longer have XP compatibility. I'm not making any promises about this one, I'm afraid!! ;)

Thanks anamorphic.
I guess Facets could use an option to enlarge its cache. But knowing its developer, it's unlikely that it will hapen.
The artwork is external and located in every folder.
I have several TB of storage so a SSD is not an option (I have an SSD, but it's a 256 GB one, for the OS and apps). Maybe in 5-10 years !
So currently everything is stored in HDDs.

That being said, I'm especially concerned about the fact that "Once the album art has loaded, foobar starts to behave quite slowly, even for other operations that don't involve album art at all, with the album art not even displayed on screen. And then I have to restart foobar for it to behave normally again". That behaviour doesn't look normal to me. Would it be Facets fault then ?
