Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 20 February, 2005, 07:53:50 PM
Discussion about the Toaster plugin, continued from:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....ndpost&p=275216 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=31674&view=findpost&p=275216)

Current version is 0.1.6 (http://www.myplugins.info) (http://www.myplugins.info), updated 5/03/2005


The Toaster plugin is a port from the Toaster for Winamp plugin:
http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details.php?id=138586 (http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details.php?id=138586)
and http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=207630 (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=207630)

As the port was done in about 20 minutes, there is still quite a bit of development to be done to get it working smoothly under fb2k.

FAQ
Where is the Foobar 2000 0.9 port?

Porting to fb2k 0.9 would require a fair amount of work, due to the fact Toaster is not native unicode. I am planning a complete rewrite of Toaster, which should be a lot nicer. It should allow tiling custom skins, progress bars, buttons etc, and proper skin packaging support. So I wont bother porting this version of Toaster across, as it needs to be re-written anyway.

I'll just paste what I wrote in the other thread here.

I get a box titled "Microsoft Visuall C++ Runtime Library" pop up, saying the following...

Runtime Error!

I'm pretty sure it's due to Toaster.

Yeah I got the same errors.
Removed Toaster and the problem ceased.

@badrad, kl33per, synth7: The configuration should be under the components menu. Look at the screenshot in the first post to see where. As it was developed for Winamp initially it doesnt support the Foobar preferences pane.

Assuming youve already looked there, I cant think off hand what the problem might be. Are you using Windows XP? Have you tried disabling other components to see which one might be conflicting? I have a feeling it might have something to do with mixed runtimes. I am using Foobar2000 v0.8.3, and Columns 0.1.2 beta3.

A am simply using the code from the tutorial for the menu code:

Code: [Select]
class menu_item_main_toaster : public menu_item_main {
// Return the number of commands we provide.
virtual unsigned get_num_items() {
  return 2;
}

// Set out to the name of the n-th command.
// This name is used to identify the command and determines
// the default position of the command in the menu.
virtual void enum_item(unsigned n, string_base & out) {
  if (n == 0) out = "Components/Toaster/Configure Toaster";
  if (n == 1) out = "Components/Toaster/Show Toast";
}

// Perform n-th command.
virtual void perform_command(unsigned n) {
  if (n==0 && core_api::assert_main_thread()) {

   configtoast();
  }
  if (n==1 && core_api::assert_main_thread()) {

   showToast(NULL, false, true, false, 0);
  }
}

// Return whether the n-th command is checked.
virtual bool is_checked(unsigned n) {
  return false;
}

// Set out to the description for the n-th command.
virtual bool get_description(unsigned n, string_base & out) {
  if (n == 0) {
   out = "Configure Toaster";
   return true;
  }
  if (n == 1) {
   out = "Show Toast";
   return true;
  }
  return false;
}
};

// We need to create a service factory for our menu item class,
// otherwise the menu commands won't be known to the system.
static menu_item_factory< menu_item_main_toaster > foo_menu;

@alphaex32: I havent fully tested the id3v2 image code in Fb2k, but its a cut'n'paste job from the winamp plugin with no dependencies on Winamp so Im not sure what the issue could be. the only thing I guessed with and didnt bother testing is the file path retrieval.:

Code: [Select]
myTag.Link((char*)track->handle_get_path());


Its possible this might be a problem if its in UTF8. Try using the winamp plugin under Winamp to see if the id3v2 covers are loaded ok to check if the problem is specific to this Fb2k version.
Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 20 February, 2005, 08:51:18 PM
@eliazu: I will fix up the utf8 etc stuff in a future version.

@foosion: Yes Ive read that FAQ, along with the many other FAQs. At the time I just didnt put a lot of thought into what UTF8 really was, or have any unicode files to test with. (if anyone has a very small unicode based file, e-mail it to me for testing).
Plus it was a 10minute port job from a player that doesnt support unicode so there is going to be a few deficiencies here and there.

Im currently using:
MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP,MB_PRECOMPOSED,(*src,-1,dest,MSGLENGTH);

In the conversion routine, just changing this to CP_UTF8 should get it to work. Although I will look into the utf8api stuff, I use some of the string_utf16_from_utf8 in the messenger portion of code, though Im not sure if this is in the utf8api lib.

I dont want to change too much to be dependent on foobar2000 libs etc, as the code is practically identical from the winamp one to the fb2k one, and itd be nice to have a unified code base for the actual window. I'll look further into it however. For if the DrawText routines have the ability to embed colour that would be nice indeed. Though I hope it has the ability to measure the strings and is GDI+ compatible.

For the play_control::playback_format_title_ex()  etc, Ive been having a few issues. That call works fine, but Id like to get the %_playlist_number% etc stuff in the formatting. So I use:

int curtrack = playlist_oper::get()->get_playback_cursor();
playlist_oper::get()->format_title(curtrack,...);

instead, which so far works. Though it obviously has issues if the item isn't in the playlist. I tried get_currenty_playing too, but it returns -1 if you call it in a  on_playback_new_track, which I guess is expected behaviour.

Whats a good way to get the track handle in such a way that it can be formatted with playlist information on a song change or when called via a hotkey? Would you say the playback_cursor would be the best method?

I will look into on_playback_dynamic_info for streams.

@Skates:

It currently just uses the first ID3FID_PICTURE it finds. AFAIK theres no particular standard for where the cover art should be stored, so it just uses the first picture it finds in the tag. It shouldnt matter whats its called AFAIK, as long as there is an image in there using the standard ID3FID_PICTURE frame.

@banjobacon, MrEnergizer:

This could be a runtime confict of some sort. Perhaps if I compile to an older version of the msvcr, or flick some compiler switches, it might work.

Otherwise, it could be some handle problem. I think that version I posted frees the handle passed to it on the on_playback_new_track which I think it probably isn't supposed to do. Whether this would cause a sporadic crash I am not sure.

For some reason its not finding the cover art tags inserted by Musicmatch, when using the lookup tags feature. If you could look into the problem it would be appreciated...

If need be I can send a MP3 tagged by Musicmatch!

Could you try using the winamp Toaster plugin and see if it finds the images? You can send me a small .mp3 with a id3v2 image in it to the address indicated in the plugin.

Doesn't work in WinAMP either, sent a demo mp3 with random ass tags from Musicmatch.

Excellent working shaneh!
this might be a silly request (memory freak sad.gif) but is it possible that after the toast fades out the ram usage can be returned to normal? (when minimized foobar mem usage is around 1.5 meg but when toasts whow it climbs to around 5 meg and doest come down but if you maximize and minimize it again it returns back to normal)
Thanks for an excellent plugin
Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 21 February, 2005, 12:22:51 AM
@Skates: I'll take a look when it comes through.

@aliumalik: I can take a look, although I think this may be more to do with the way Windows works. ie, when you minimize foobar (or any application), it pages out the memory to disk. But because Toaster causes a window to be shown in that thread, Windows reloads the paged memory and doesnt page the process out again until you manually hit "minimize". This is because Windows see the process as "active"/"interactive" and is careful not to page the process out.

While memory "usage" might drop to 1.5mb, you will probably find the actual VM size doesnt change for the process.

shaneh from toaster's settings I figured you know how to display embedded album art files from id3v2 tags. If you have some knowledge on this could you help foo_uie_albumart (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=29383). They can't figure out how to display images from id3v2 tags and I have to manually create folder.jpg for all of my album folders.

Thanks a lot

@skates: That file you sent me showed the cover images fine in Winamp. (be sure to enable the option). Ive found the problem with the foobar plugin. The file path is being returned in the format "file://c:\" instead of just "c:\". I'll add the fix into the next release.

Do you know how to get the file path without the file:// cruft? I suppose I could use titleformat, but I suspect there may be another more efficient way.

I also need a way for detecting streams to avoid looking for the id3 tag or folder.jpg etc.

@aliumalik: Toaster just makes use of id3lib, theres plenty of documentation for that particular library.

Ive fixed up the support for ID3v2 cover images and UTF8 tags:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....ndpost&p=275216 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=31674&view=findpost&p=275216)

I still need to look into the dynamic info, http streams and so forth. I tried adding colour support, but the .ini file I am using strips leading 0x03 characters as whitespace, so its a bit problematic so Ive left it out.

I can't just use the utf8api for my purposes either, as I need to use DrawString and wrapped text etc.

Still having the same problem, sent you another MP3, this one also contains APEv2 tags which maybe be the problem in all of this.  If you can check out it out, it would be appreciated.  Figured out why the MP3 that I sent you was not working in WinAMP, but the rest of my MP3s with APEV2 tags along with ID3v2 aren't working either.

Also I noticed a problem with exporting configs, example in 1 and on the right side I have " '('%_length%')' " and when I export that, it doesn't save it properly.  It will save as  " ('%_length%') " its cutting out the '.  This also seems to be happening everytime foobar2000 is closed and reopnened.

Also the id3lib.dll error message reads that the dll should be in the same folder as winamp.exe.

Just tried it, and sure enough, it works in the winamp version. So it is surely a problem specific to the foobar port.

Btw, I am getting error logs everytime I shut down foobar after installing your plugin.

alphaex32: Have you tried the new version I posted in the upload forum? it should have fixed that problem.

RE: the error logs, Ive seen that too. As well as the pure virtual call error. I will look into it further.

@Skates: That file you sent me didnt have any id3v2 tags.

The missing ' is a result of the .ini saving and loading API in windows. I will probably switch to another method for foobar later. You can just prefix and suffix your tags with something like [] and it should retain it ok.

Hmm damn, I just noticed that tag.exe is removing the id3v2 tags that Musicmatch adds.  Havew to come up with a different solution so that it doesn't happen.  What about reading the tags from APEv2?

Didn't even notice the new version. Unfortunately, the rar file seems to be corrupted. I have redownloaded it a few times already and winrar is giving me those "unexpected end" errors.

Why am I having that problem so much? Ive havent experienced problems with corruption before, I can only assume its an issue with my account on this board.

Ive tried updating it with another format, see if it helps.

@Skates: Does APE even support cover images? I see nothing here:

tag.exe puts the images in APEv2 so I'm guessing that it is, otherwise it should still work since APE is just a tag format and it shouldn't matter what the tags contain.

foobar2000 will remove cover art when the tag is altered/rewritten. This is considered a feature, not a bug. Cover images should not be stored in audio files.

shaneh your plugin is open source right? Why not host @ sourceforge.net? IPB's uploading somehow gets the compressed files corrupted :S. And yes I am also getting those random crashes haven't been able to try this one yet. If you dont want to host @ sourceforge I will be getting my hosting in a week and I can host for you

You could also upload your plugin to the 3rd party plugin site (http://pelit.koillismaa.fi/plugins/).

Hey, I got the latest version (.zip file worked!) and it seems as though the crashes on quit have been fixed, though I haven't tested thoroughly. I have a few requests:

- Have an option so that it is not always on top.

- I have my hold option all the way up (which I assume makes it never go away) and if I press stop, it stays there. It'd be nice if it'd automatically go away if the music is stopped.

- Have an option to show elapsed time?

- If song is paused, have it show [Paused] or something like that.

Maybe these options defeat the original purpose of the plugin, but I'd find them useful.

Thanks,
-Tristan

shaneh from toaster's settings I figured you know how to display embedded album art files from id3v2 tags. If you have some knowledge on this could you help foo_uie_albumart (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=29383). They can't figure out how to display images from id3v2 tags and I have to manually create folder.jpg for all of my album folders.

Thanks a lot

Art in tags is incompatable with foobar's tagging, so adding cover art to any tag type would not be a good idea.  You'd have to disable tag writing in foobar entirely for it to work.

Using a folder.jpg is a much better solution.

Actually, a folder.jpg will not work right for some people such as I, I only keep singles from albums that I deem worthy enough to keep.  In this case it would be redundant to have a folder for every single I have, in instances that I only have one song from that album.

Well you could just have many image files in the folder and name them after the single.

Seems there is a problem with displaying album cover in some cases:
If there is an ä,ö or ü [german: "Umlaute"] in the file path, the folder-jpg can't be displayed.
Is there any possibility to solve this problem?
Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 21 February, 2005, 07:13:45 PM
I think I may have found the cause of at least one of the crashes, I will update it with a fix eventually.

I wont bother uploading it anywhere else until Ive stabalised it somewhat.

I dont see the problem with cover art in your audio files. It contains other meta data so why not. It certainly saves having to fiddle with external files etc. The disk space usage isnt much of an argument when you go through and do the actual % figures. I agree that id3v2 is a crappy format though. Id be more concerned about a player that modifies your files as you play them  and writes non-standard tags such as PLAYCOUNT instead of the standard POPM fields etc, with the only way to prevent it being to block all tag modifications. Thats always bugged me about fb2k.

@Biscuits: I tried implementing an "always on bottom" feature a while ago, but Windows doesnt really support it. You have to continually check your Z order position and move to the bottom on all sorts of events etc. It ended up being quite awkward and unusable.

I could hide the toast window on stop without a problem I think.

Things like elapsed time which change dynamically are a bit tricky to do in Toaster. Its been coded in such a way that updating would require a complete redraw of the window. Though thinking about it just now, there might be a way. Although the dynamic width would have to not change with each update, only on a song change, for best results.

The song paused thing would be easy to do if I implement the dynamic info stuff I talked about above.

@rossthiof + others: I will need to change the file handling to unicode versions AFAIK.

[a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=275790"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]

Err. This is not a feature of the player, but something introduced by third party plugins that are not part of any installer package. Don't spread this kind of disinformation, please. (btw there is an alternative plugin that does not touch file tags at all and keeps track of playback statistics in its own database)
Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 21 February, 2005, 08:18:13 PM
Maybe so, but if you want to keep statistics in the main database (AFAIK, the database is part of the player), then you have to update it with fields similar to how the 3rd party plugin works. This data is then potenitally written to the file. I think most people would want to use this database than a 2nd, or sql server or whatever.

Regardless of whether the 3rd party plugins which put this info in the DB in the first place are or aren't part of the package, the main db has the ability to write non-standard tags to files you play. Which AFAIK *is* a feature of the player.

Post by: A_Man_Eating_Duck on 22 February, 2005, 05:50:12 AM
is there any chance of getting support for multiple image locations?
Like an image fallback, if string A is not found, try string B.

e.g
i have
F:\album art\%Artist% - %Album%.jpg
and
F:\album art\Various Artists - %album%

or is it easier to put in support for the $if2 function ?

e.g
$if2(F:\Album Art\%artist% - %album%.jpg,F:\Album Art\Various Artists - %album%.jpg)
Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 22 February, 2005, 06:23:45 AM
A_Man_Eating_Duck: You can separate strings by ; and Toaster will try them in order. Unfortuantly if your albums or artist have non-filename characters have invalid filename characters you will have problems. I am not sure of a way to filter the strings such that invalid characters are filtered (on a per tag basis). /EDIT: The $replace function would seem to do the trick.

Ive updated to 0.1.2, but only debug builds are currently available until stability settles. You will need the debug msvcr stuff for this.

I think Ive fixed the main issue people were probably having. I previously had C++ exceptions turned off due to some internal SEH stuff I was doing with delay imports. Ive changed this about a bit and hopefully it will work a little better. I havent done the unicode file handling stuff yet though.

Exactly third party plugins should be able to access the db and create additional fields. This whole idea of tagging the files with playcount is weird and using sqllite adds another process why use an external db if you already have one. I still cant understand why it removes some metadata when editing tags while that metadata is part of the id3 spec. For me this is the first thing that needs to be worked on. id3 spec compliant tags and native id3v2 support like other players do today (itunes etc)

I downloaded a file with Toaster skins from the Winamp forum (here (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?postid=1596375#post1596375)). I got the ballon skin to work in foobar by changing a few settings around in the Toaster config window, after importing the Ballon preset. However, after I close and reopen fb2k, the skin doesn't work anymore. I have to re-import it for anything to show up.

I've just dl v 0.1.3 and now I get the "cannot load DLL" error when foobar starts.  I already have all the dll's I think I need as well as GDI since I am on WinXP sp2.  Are there some components known to cause this or am I still missing something?

EDIT: Also, I can't open with 7zip archives at all with either winrar or 7-zip.

you can get the 2 dll's needed for debug version from here: http://dream.eng.uci.edu/sungjin/EECS123/ (http://dream.eng.uci.edu/sungjin/EECS123/)
if you dont want that, use the release version - my download did not work, too (firefox). but after i tried the download in internet explorer, it worked?!

Regardless of whether the 3rd party plugins which put this info in the DB in the first place are or aren't part of the package, the main db has the ability to write non-standard tags to files you play. Which AFAIK *is* a feature of the player.

Writing nonstandard tags is a very useful feature, and allowed by the spec in most tag formats (and when not allowed, they are not written).  What possible reason could you have for not wanting them?

Exactly the point, cover art maybe unstandard with APEv2, but as you say unstandard tags are very useful. So whats the point of not supporting cover art tags?

Seems like your backstepping from your previous statements...

I think it would be useful to allow for wildcards in the paths for cover images.  So for example I have a "folder.jpg" in one dir and "folder.bmp" in another I can use a string with "folder.*".

@spase: I have site space and domain etc, just havent got around to organising it properly yet.

@bukem: sure, what are the callbacks required to get that info? I tried playback_on_dynamic_info but it only seems to get called when a http stream starts playing, and only when it starts, not when the title is finalised. Also, whats a good method to get the playing file info using the playlist? Just using the *track handle from on playback change doesnt give you the playlist info. Using playlist->get_current playing index doesnt work if you delete or move the current playing item.

Post by: BlueDev on 28 February, 2005, 09:36:53 PM
First off, amazingly cool plugin.  I love this.  Big time.

Is it possible to get it to display the time elapsed or time remaining?  I know it can display the total time, just curious about the other.  Looked through the .htm that comes with the Winamp version and didn't see it there.
Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 28 February, 2005, 09:59:58 PM
See reply to @bukem.

The only way Ive seen plugins update that info is with a timer, which I would like to avoid using. There should be a callback for when the time elapsed changes, and other things change. I know there is the 'seek' callback, and the dynamic info callback (which doesnt seem to do anything too useful AFAIK), but havent seen anything very usable.

@eliazu: if there was a site for toaster skins, I wouldnt be posting attachments to this forum. The 'skins' you speak of are nothing more than just images. You want a skin? try http://www.google.com/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi&q= (http://www.google.com/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi&q=) there are plenty there.

Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 04 March, 2005, 09:05:22 AM
Ive resolved the aa text problem, but am not sure about the transparency issue. I know its from the updating of the text every second which is somehow resetting the alpha of the whole window, but cant reproduce the problem.

What are your settings?

/EDIT: Nevermind, Ive found the problem. I was simply drawing over the text area with the background image to clear it, instead of doing a proper clear. I needed to set the compositing mode to src copy instead of src over to prevent layering the apha values on top of each other constantly. You will notice there is actually some transparency around the album cover, this is because this isnt cleared when the text is updated.

@waileongyeo: I have this already coded for the winamp version, and will put it in the foobar2000 version too, its pretty simple.

@Superunknown: If there is a simple callback mechanism for this I will put it in, but I couldnt find anything with a quick look. I could use all sorts of hacks to do it, but will only do it if there is a nice clean way to do it.

@war59312: The MSN Messenger info doesnt change dynamically because otherwise you will have it updating every second. I would suspect that every time this changes, a network packet goes out to all your contacts, so I avoid doing this, and do it only if the song changes.

I couldnt find a clean way to detect track changes in http streams in fb2k other than comparing the title every second. If you know of a clean callback method to detect actual track changes I will gladly make the fix. Using dynamic_info callback doesnt seem to make a difference.

Dear friends,

    I found this free program is quite useful for me to embed the cd cover image into the mp3 song. AudioShell (http://www.softpointer.com/AudioShell.htm).

    You can then enable option  "use id3v2 covers" to display album cover using foo_toaster (and I assume you have downloaded id3lib.dll to foobar2000 program directory).

    However, this free utility seems like do not support multiple file embeding, what a pity.

Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 14 March, 2005, 08:08:27 PM
Yes it would require quite a lot of effort. gdiplus on my system is already loaded by explorer.exe, msnmsgr.exe and outlook.exe so it doesnt actually use any extra memory or diskspace. This is using XP however. You can use listdlls -d gdiplus.dll from sysinternals or some other process explorer to see.

If I were to not use gdiplus.dll, I would have to write my own .jpg/.gif/.png loading and alpha belnding code etc, which would be just re-inventing gdiplus.dll. The difference being it probably wouldnt be as good, and wouldnt be shared in memory amongst other applications. So it makes a lot of sense to use gdiplus actually.

@waileongyeo:

The MSN formatting doesnt use the playlist to do the formatting, so things like %elapsed_time% etc wont work. This is to be expected, as you dont want this changing every second.

The reason you are having trouble with the $if's is because you are probably going over the 100 char limit.

Thanks for your reply.

I didn't use %elapsed_time% and I did notice that MSN will only be updated when there is change of now playing song (may be pause and resume also). Texts I get are the general (static) expression of %artist% %date% %title%...

100 chars limit for the "format strings" for MSN title/artist? Or it's the limit if MSN to display 100 chars. If the limit is the "format strings", it then make sense if my formatting string is more that 100 char and that's why a syntax error returned in MSN messenger. However, this doesn't occur in the display of toaster.

So I guess the limitation of 100 chars is the limit for the display of MSN title. Right?

The plugin is great, but it does not remember the settings for me. I have to import my preset each time I run foobar2000 and that"s not too convenient. The preset combo box on the first tab of configuration dialog seems to be broken completely, only Export / Import seem to be working.. I guess that's simply because it's not finished yet, but nobody complained about needing to re-import the preset each time, so it might be just my problem...

So does toaster support storing the settings across sessions? Where does it store it, so I could have a look and maybe figure out what's wrong ?
Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 19 March, 2005, 07:54:05 PM
@waileongyeo: Yes the 100 char limit is the limit for the msn text box, not what gets sent to messenger. ie, %title% could expand to 200 characters and it should still be ok. I will make it a bit bigger later on. Unfortuantly there needs to be some kind of limit, because the .ini loading/saving requires a fixed buffer. If/When I eventually use fb2ks config saving/loading this problem will probably be resolved.

@Quiark: The settings should save across sessions fine. Perhaps you are loading the presets incorrectly, it is admittedly a bit of an awkward process.

Choose the preset you want from the drop down list, then click "Load Preset", then click "Apply". You can then configure it how you want, and click "Apply" to save the setting to that named preset. Clicking "Apply" will always overwrite the named preset with the current settings, so be sure to click "Load preset" first, unless you want to overwrite it with whatever the current settings are.

The settings are stored in "Toaster.ini" in whatever directory Fb2k specifies is the profile directory (typically just the main application directory).  Perhaps you are running as non-admin and dont have permissions to that file? There should be some means to specify the profile directory in fb2k if thats the problem.

Hmm.. it does not work... My user account has the all administrator priviledges (I'm a member of the Administrators group) and I've checked that I'm able to create a file both in foobar's directory and the Profile\Application Data\foobar2000 directory. However the plugin is for some reason unable to create the file, I haven't found a file called toaster.ini anywhere on my disk drive.

I was trying everything to get more than one thing into the combo box, but there is always only one preset. And each time I click the Load preset button, some default preset (Winamp skin, small letters, centered, fading slowly and such) is loaded even if I had imported a preset before and said that I want the current preset to be overwritten...

It may be caused by the fact that I haven't installed foobar, but just copied it from another computer..

If you are planning to store the settings using foobar's internal routines soon it would be probably better solution...

I had that problem because foobar was located in a directory using Spanish caracters (ñ, etc.), I removed it (turned the ñ to n, etc.) and everything works well now.

@Quiark: I suspected that may be the case. This is an issue with Toaster not handling unicode characters in the config path. I assumed Windows wouldnt be that silly in having the Program Files directory or other standard directories have unicode characters, as its just asking to break programs that don't support unicode properly. I will try fix it up, I kinda suspected it would be a problem for someone eventually

@sOid: No, you need to get the foobar2000 version. It is a .rar file with a foo_toaster.dll file in it. Place hte dll in your components directory. You are trying to install the winamp version. Visit http://www.myplugins.info (http://www.myplugins.info) and get the fb2k version.

If there is any Unicode character in "MSN Format" field, the whole thing doesn't show up in MSN at all. (But if the file tags themselves contain Unicode characters, they display correctly, so this should be a foo_toaster problem not a MSN problem.)

THanks shaneh for such a great plugin!  I really like it because it alphablends real nicely.

I am using id3v2 albumcovers - I was wondering if you were able to make a small change to the functionality of toaster, that is, when albumcover is not present for the particular song, a hole (for the cover art) is not shown if cover is to the left of the text.  If you don't understand what I mean, I will attach some images.

Thanks

I will get around to updating this plugin sometime soon, with proper foobar2000 config support rather than .ini saving which will fix heaps of unicode problems. Although Im a bit unsure at the moment how to suport multiple presets when using foobar2000 config routines.

With regards to the empty space, it is possible to have a toast_track.png which will be used if the cover isn't found, but I can add the option to extend the text over if you like.

Im also hoping to add some inline colour encoding support to the ATF text output stuff, though it might be a bit tricky.

It should work fine. Make sure you have the 'what im listening to' feature turned on and arent running any other media players which also update these titles.

It uses similar code to the foo_msn plugin, so if that works there might be something wrong with the configuration of Toaster. It currently has some issues with unicode config paths etc.

You can try the foo_msn plugin from http://www.myplugins.info (http://www.myplugins.info)

A couple of weeks ago, the msn toaster function was working fine. Now it does not work at all. I've tried foo_msn, as well. Any suggestions on how to fix this. No errors took place. There's simply no interaction between Foobar and Messenger.

Post by: shaneh on 23 April, 2005, 01:19:45 AM
Did you install any stuffnplug/msgplus/mess.be nonsense? My advice would be to simply uninstall messenger and re-install it again if so. This plugin is for the unmodified MSN Messenger 7.0.0777 and above. If it works for any other hacks or versions, that is a bonus, not a supported environment.

/EDIT: I have confirmed there does seem to be a problem at the moment, although it appears to be an issue with MSN Messenger rather than Toaster. Before blaming Toaster or foo_msn, test with the official MS plugin and WMP to check that is not a problem with Messenger itself. Which it would appear to be.

I've solved my my MSN problem.
(Note: Although, I didn't use the toaster options for MSN this may prove useful for people unable to get that option working for them)

So here's my dummy explanation:

1. I kept toaster but unchecked all the msn options.
2. Then I got foo_msn off the same site as Toaster and put it in the Foobar components folder. (Link: http://www.myplugins.info/) (http://www.myplugins.info/))
3. On MSN, I unchecked the "what I'm listening to" function. My WMP messenger plugin is also disabled.
4. I closed Messenger.
5. Opened Messenger.
6. Checked the "What I'm listening to" function.
7. My title appeared as it should on my MSN display. 

It's worth a try for anyone that had my problem.

Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: shaneh on 24 April, 2005, 02:07:38 AM
A non-english operating system may affect Toaster, as it isn't fully unicode compatible yet. Foo_msn should work ok though. Try removing the foo_toaster component completely and just use foo_msn. Toaster may be interfering and setting the wrong information because it can't handle the unicde properly. Just disabling it may not work, because a non-ansi install path causes settings to not be saved properly (in Toaster).

It would appear the updates are working ok, it just isn't TAGZ'ing it properly. What are your configuration settings for foo_msn? (under MSN Now Playing) It should be:

Artist{0} = %artist%
Title{1} = %title%

MSN Format = {0} - {1}

Try playing with those values.

Thx shaneh for this very nice component.

Would it be possible to enable/disable it via a keyboard shortcut? The "show toast" feature isn't exactly what I thinking of, as it is a one shot action. A shortcut to "enable toasts" would be really useful for people like me who only use the toaster when remote controlling foobar (which means, who need to activate/desactivate the toaster quite often). What's your opinion?

Guys, try above method.

It should work I think.

Or, try following steps:
1. First, make sure foobar is not running. Remove toaster plugin from foobar component direcotry.
2. Start foobar and reset the menu as indicated above.

Yes, *.jpg only works on the build on winamp. The author did promised to update this feature on next release of the toaster for foobar. I've been waiting for it for months... 

Hope the author will continue with the plugin and release a new version soon.

Can you use folder.* instead of specifying the file extension?  While most of my cover arts are jpg's, some are png's and other formats.  It would be nice to not have to write out the same string 5 times.

you can set a hotkey to show a toast by:

2. Under "Actions" navigate to [main] Components/Toaster/Show Toast
3. Put the key combo in the box, check if you want it to be global, and click "Add"

shaneh,

This is an excellent plugin - I used with WinAmp before I discovered foobar.

I have a feature request - would it be possible to "animate out" when the mouse moves over the toast  ?  When the mouse moves away, then "animate in" ?

I keep my toast on permanently so this would be really handy.

If you already have this in your plethora of options, then hit me.

It's the same problem with me - it's caused by non-english characters in the Documents And Settings/user/Application Data/foobar2000 directory (I, for instance have Data Aplikací instead of Application Data) and toaster cannot handle that.

However there was no update for quite a while, so I eventually switched to foo_prettypop which is not as good as toaster, but what can I do...

Hi.

First off, thank you, shaneh, for your excellent work. This plugin is great! I hope you continue this project...

...which comes to my question, a question that was asked many times before in this topic - could you add the support for the *.jpgs? Preety much of my collection has got covers from Amazon (which is for example B00004C4L3.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg) or from other sources. Plus, I don't want to rename them, because I have the most of them on my CDs (= I'd had to reburn them). As I've read, you've coded this for Winamp. Is it possible for this to do it in fb2k?

Thanks in advance for your response.

On the winamp version of toaster, the default ones were set up to show streaming titles and artists so you could get someone to copy and paste the info from that...

Hi all,

Just some questions on Toaster's album art function.
Is it possible for Toaster to load *any* .jpg file in the Toaster, instead of loading a specific file (ie, folder.jpg?)

Thanks a lot..

If you mean to give it something like *.jpg, I don't think you can.  If you mean to programatically determine a filename to load, such as %artist%.jpg, yes.
[a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=348004"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]

I think this plugin could really use support for wildcards like *.jpg or even *.*.  The album art panel functions like that and it's quite handy, especially when you have albums tagged with character that aren't allowed as filenames, like : or some unicode characters.  This way you can simply have it show any image in the directory.  Basically I'd like to see it support things the same as the album art panel.
for example I have these for my album art:
Code: [Select]
match:$left(%_path%,$sub($len(%_path%),$len(%_filename_ext%)))*.*
match:$replace(%_path%,%_filename_ext%,,%_directoryname%,)*

The second line is great for 2 disc albums with the cover in the top directory like album/disc 1/.

but i think it's a bit difficult to figure out.

I think to read lyrics on toaster is better than in original window~~

(If there is source~I will do that....but....)

Can the developer do it?

On the "Window" tab in Toaster preferences, drag the "Max Width" slider to the right.  You might also want to change the dynamic width adjustment minimum to a smaller percentage so shorter titles don't use a wide window.

Hey, thanks for the plugin.  I've used it for both fb2k and winamp.  I think i found a bug.  The dynamic playtime i.e. the current time of the currently playing track doesn't work if I have a playlist highlighted in foobar that the currently playing track is not in.  For example, I am playing song x from playlist y, but in foobar, i currently have playlist z as the selected playlist in foobar.  When this happens, the dynamic current playtime doesn't seem to update properly when toaster pops up.  Are others getting this same behavior?

I am aware of that, but the component still has to be updated to function with it.  I thought all of the developers made it clear no v0.8.3 components would work with v0.9.  Obviously this can and hopefully will be updated with the new SDK.  There has been no development on this in quite some time though.  Be a shame if it were never updated.

Sure could. If you upload a screenie of your setup or tell me some hex values it would be even easier for me and would blend better with your current stuff.

Does look nice.  So far I don't think anything has been ported to 0.9 yet, aside from the stuff that was around during the beta testing as well.  Seems a lot of plugins have to have a lot of code rewritten, and in some cases redone entirely.  I need toaster, album art, track info panel & RMX before I can switch, so it hurts.
But nice looking toaster thingy.  Nice to see people still making skins for it, shame the plugin doesn't seem to be getting this much attention from the developer.

It would seriously rock if this was ported to 0.9, though it would even be better if he released the source (can't anyone get it?  If I knew C++ or whatever, I would contribute) and someone picked up from where he left?  Or maybe if prettypopup were to be able to be customized as much as Toaster was.  I just miss the awesomeness of Toaster/Album Art Plugin/Track Info

A decent programmer could probably write a similar plugin quite easily.  I don't know much about programming, but the most complicated part of toaster seems like it would be the art display & fading in/out.  I never much liked how toaster wouldn't allow wildcards for album images, like *.* or the ability to look one directory up or use any image the current songs directory.  Has anyone tried directly contacting the dev about getting it updated or obtaining the source?

the best would be to contact shaneh per email as he is still updating his winamp-plugins - I guess he is not looking at this place here...

if you read the first post in this thread you'll notice shaneh is in the process of totally rewriting this plugin. u guys need to give these developers space. not only to work on the plugins, but personal time also. i know if i had people on my back all the time about free software i was developing, i would be more inclined not to share it with them..

Anyone hear any updates or progress on this plugin?

Havent heard anything yet

This plugin needs to be rebuilt from scratch, with support for some much cooler functionality. Its not too difficult, but just a lot of work to which I dont have enough motivation or time at the moment.

Its also frustrating knowing that WinFX / Avalon type stuff is around the corner, which could be used to make something even nicer and could make any work I put in now obsolete in a few months.

I havent forgotten it though, and my goal is to branch it to something completely new, with much better skins support and extendability without too much bloat/overhead or too difficult to configure.

One day...

Indeed you're work will be appreciated. I am using foo_prettypop, but it just isn't the same as toaster.

Your Winamp version is working great.  Thanx for all the hard work you've put in so far.  I'm not looking for a lot of configurability as to information presentation in the panel.  I have it set to just display the album art on the desktop while the player is minimized.  I can unminimize the player to view more info.

I'll love any efforts for a foobar 0.9.x version even if it doesn't have all the requested bells and whistles at first.

Thanx again.

I too would very much appreciate an update of this component. It really changed the way I listen to my audio collection via my computer and hi-fi setup. I'm displaying it almost full screen, with the track info on the left handside of the screen and the album cover on the right handside. I then switch my screen to standby and it just looks great.

Right now I miss some extra features (mainly: multiple colors, Tagz support, Unicode support, display update on track change). I guess there are many other ways to improve it too.

But I already enjoy a lot this component as it is.

Any chance of a release of the source so we could get a crack at it?

As shana said, It would most likely take a rewrite to get it working well. Perheps a gander at the source would give you a direction at where to start writing your own component, But if shana is already working on one..

Cool plugin too bad it's not updated to 0.9.x

Post by: Superunknown on 13 September, 2006, 02:25:32 PM
this plugin is one of the reason why I stay on 0.8.3, foo_prettypop can't replace it as this one doesn't need .Net 2.0 (on the other hand, a version that does support Google Talk would be great too)

Because having the .net framework installed will destroy your computer faster then sasser.

Please don't talk to me that way...

I've put .net finally to have a try at 0.9.3.1, well, prettypop offer less possibility than toaster, less animations (just one actually), less skinnable, etc. :-(

@mquander: Actually, I'm an avid Microsoft supporter. I program in .NET professionally and i work with several MS product families daily. I always test out the newest MS products like vista and office 2007 nowadays. In case you didn't realize the obvious, My previous post was sarcastic. Superunknown seems to have figured that out. When your ass will allow your face to gain control, Lets resume this discussion elsewhere, we're already off topic.

@Superunknown: Thats fine, I was just saying, .NET v2 isn't a good reason to not use something if its as good as the non-managed solution. Where in this case there isn't an alternative right now. In the end, do what suits you

it's OK

Personally I'm not a pro or anti-Microsoft or anything else . I don't own shares for those societies so the only thing I want is getting the best programs.

To get back to the main subject, if someone manages to put this plug-in for 0.9.x, I think I'll definately move from 0.8.3 to 0.9.x

Post by: DarkBlackCorner on 29 December, 2006, 02:30:54 PM
Is this plugin still only available for v0.8.3 then?  I'm a little confused here...
Title: Toaster for Fb2k
Post by: TedFromAccounting on 29 December, 2006, 03:19:10 PM
Yes, only for 0.8.3, if you want similar functionality you'll have to use foo_prettypop, or foo_osd if you want something text only.

I suppose this is because of the plugin hasn't been updated to 0.9.X yet...

I know it's not the same as Toaster, but with the 0.7 version of foo_title, Quiark has added the ability to display only at song start/end.  Plus, it's skinnable and you can make working buttons.  Again, I'm not trying to say one is better than the other, but foo_title is currently available for 0.9 and a whole lot more flexible than foo_prettypop.  I personally go with an always-there titlebar-sized skin (basically winshade from WinAmp), but something resembling Toaster should be doable.  It does require .Net 2.0, which may or may not matter to you.
