I'm happy to announce my first foobar2000 plugin, foo_nowplaying2.

What it does is output a title-formatted string with the playback state to a user-configured file. That file can be consumed by software such as OBS Studio - Text (GDI+) source.

Get it from github -

Thank you! I've been looking for a replacement for NP. I use it to overlay text of what's playing when I stream.

When I click on Releases, it goes to a 404. I am logged into GitHub.

@foxX :  please add an option to limit the size of a log text file by specifying the maximum number of entries, after which new entries will make older ones "spool off."  Thanks for the 64-bit version!

Hi! I was so happy to find your add-in! It works like a charm. I am using it to project info about the current playing track. One question or idea...

Would it also be possible to export in such a way data about THE NEXT track in a queue? I would need this to announce what is playing next while the current track is still playing.
