Title: foo_sendtodevice
Post by: cwbowron on 2006-03-21 20:28:17
foo_sendtodevice adds to context menu options:

Send to Device/Default
Send to Device/Select...

Default will send the files to the first path in your list, Select will present you the complete list of device paths that you have configured in the preferences under Tools/Send to Device.  Select will also let you optionally export a m3u playlist of the copied items.  Great tool for exporting files to an mp3 player that acts as a USB device.

foo_sendtodevice is available from my foobar2000 components page (http://wiki.bowron.us/index.php/Foobar2000).

First of all: Thanks, I've been waiting for such a plugin since I have an mp3 Player  .
Unfortunatly it doesn't work for me. I always get the error
Filename eg Paragon - 2003 - The Dark Legacy - 01 - The Legacy cannot be copied: The reported path can't be found.
Make sure that the reported path is correct.

Roughly translated.
BTW I try to copy directly to N:\, but I don't think this matters...

with foo_sendtodevice, the path must be in terms of TAGZ...

i.e you probably want to do something like:

Code: [Select]
N:\%artist% - %title%.$ext(%_path%)

I guess you should add this to documentation!

Maybe it's quite from the different area, but I'd like to have an option to copy to my mobile device either via ActiveSync or Bluetooth.  If it's already implemented somewhere, please point it.

A few suggestions:

-I know that you're supposed to use TAGZ, but could you just have it automatically append the file extension to the end? It's annoying and pointless to have to add $ext(%_path%) every time when there's no good reason NOT to have it.

-Make the devices screen in preferences similar to the way it's done in the album list prefs, including the options to name each device, move them up and down, etc.

-The send to device dialog (minor note: "dialog" could be renamed to "Send to Device") is kind of bulky with that extra frame. Something like the "Send to Playlist..." dialog would look nicer. I also don't see a great need to be able to configure it inside the window itself; it'd be more intuitive just to show the options defined in preferences.

-Even better: Change the context menu item into a dropdown box with each option available, so you can do it in two clicks.

-REALLY MINOR: In accordance with standard windows apps, "Send To Device" should be renamed to "Send to Device..."

The main reason I have it as an editable field is that I have a couple different external devices and sometimes depending on what I have plugged in my mp3 will be E:, F: or G: and I dont want to have 3 different devices listed for what essentially is the same device... so I just have it as the most common drive then if I should have a different configuration when I go to use it, I can easily change the drive when runnning it...

Do i really have to or is there another way to get it to work?

I wanted to give this plugin a try. Usually i transfered the files to my device with the "File Operations" option. But now i recognized that the files are being processed in the order of the filenames (or artist tag?) and not in the order of the playlist number.

But i need the files to be transfered in the order of the playlist number (list index) because my porty doesn't sort alphabeticaly but in the order it recieved the files.

I would be so bold and guess that it's not possible. Why would they let you load arbitrary data onto the device, when you can just use Windows Media Player to transfer your music there, which also happens to enforce all their DRM policies? After all, the "Plays for sure" logo doesn't just mean that a device can decode dertain audio formats, but also that it uses Microsoft's DRM technology.

Well, this is merely speculation, so feel free to find a counter-example or other information to prove me wrong.

That would be bad news bears right there.  There a lot more playsforsure compatible devices, so hopefully someone will hack it sometime soon.  It sucks considering I use Foobar for all my music needs, and I dont want to have to use WMP for syncing songs to it

Are they linked in the forums?

Or is there a way using the "file operations" option the way i want to use it? Is it permanently set to sort by filename (or artist?)? I don't understand why 0.9 acts like this. In 0.8.3 with "masstagger -> rename, move or copy files" the files where moved in the order they appeared in the playlist. Was there a discussion to change this in 0.9?

As long as they can play DRM protected files the answer is yes. As part of the licence agreement you receive a stublib that you need to link to when using WM format toolkit.

Finally someone was able to provide me a link:

(direct link: http://music.morbo.org/download/Microsoft.VC80.CRT.7z (http://music.morbo.org/download/Microsoft.VC80.CRT.7z) )

PlugIn works fine here but if the porty is sorting alphabetically, you may have a problem: %list_index% is not supported. In this case you have to stick with the build-in "File operations"-tool.

I'm very pleased with this plugin.
It was so slow searching for my music and drag and drop it from Windows Explorer.

I just have one suggestion:

Could you make a Check option named 'Don't ask for device again' please.

I have made my mp3 player to load automatically on an assigned drive letter. So I just don't need to tell it everytime where I want to upload my music.

Obviously you can make later an option on the Preferences panel if I wan't again to ask me again where I should copy my files.

Thank you.

Edit: Typos.

Why is the destination TAGZ script limited in length? It seems that you can't enter a script that exceeds the boundaries of that "destination:" textbox. Could you please fix this?

I'm trying to use
"L:\sounds\%album artist%-%album%\%tracknumber%-%title%.$ext(%_path%)" as output but it's a couple of characters too long.

I need help with your Plugin. Every time foobar starts I get this message: "ERROR (CORE) : Failed to load DLL: foo_sendtodevice.dll, reason: Unable to load DLL."

I don't know what to do. I have installed the .NET Framework 2.0 and tried to extract the DLLs from the Link of start78 but it still don't work. Any suggestions?

Hello it's me again.

I have this album named  'It all starts here...' it seems whenever I try to upload it I get this message:
'(Path) refers to a location that is unavailable...' but obviously I have my mp3 plugged correctly. So I guess the three dots on the name of the album are making trouble.

Could this be fixed or should I avoid tag album names with two or more dots?

Another nice plugin, cwbowron

Feat. request: Would an option be possible to work together with the encoding presets in the converter tool?
That way people could set a bitrate limit to downsample when uploading the tracks!
I.e.: If bitrate is 150% higher than encoding preset, downsample.
Or: If bitrate is higher than x kBps, convert.
Maybe a list of file formats should also be converted automatically, for those DAPs that don't support AACs etc...

Cheers

AWESOME. Thanks so much for this component! I recently picked up a usb mp3 player (a 4GB samsung yp-z5 if you're curious), and the ability to do drag & drop UMS transfers was probably the biggest selling point for me. I'm thrilled that I can do it with the click of a custom button in foobar

keep up the good work

The Problem is the windows explorer. If you want sendtodevice to create a folder with three dots in the end i think it tells windows explorer to do so but windows explorer can't. Try that manually and you understand it. Maybe this would be a suggestion for the next version of sendtodevice: remove finishing dots for folder names or change them to underlines.
<edit>just mentioned that this is already on the feature request list</edit>

Adding %list_index% support would also be nice!

to the original poster:
As a workaround, you could set up your device path from foo to $replace(foo,...,_) and it might work.

You can't.

You select "Send to Device\Select..." and choose from the list there.  Only the default path is available directly from the context menu.

Thanks for this great plugin!

Is it possible to to:

1) Randomly select songs to send to the device (like itunes does with the ipod shuffle); and to
2) Place a filesize limit on the random selection?

I have a 512mb card on my phone, and it would be great if I could send approximately 400mb to my phone of randomly selected songs.

Not with this plugin alone, but it possible using other plugins such as playlist tree that can generate a playlist of random songs with a maximum total file size.  After you generate the playlist you can use sendtodevice to copy the files over.

Here is an example playlist tree query to do this:

One Suggestion for your plugin:

Some Players support only FAT16 but can handle 1GB (perhaps also 2GB) memory cards. If you want to fill these cards you have to sort your files in folders because there can't be more than about 90 files in the root directory.

As long as you only copy complete albums it's no problem to create a folder for each album. But what if you have a totaly mixed playlist?

My idea is to let the plugin create a folder for each 80 files. For example like this: sendtodevice creates a folder named "01" and copies the files in there. If there are 80 files in "01", sendtodevice automaticaly creates a folder "02"...

Perhaps with a parameter like $foldersplit(80) or something like that.

Why not just use something like

$upper($left(%artist%,1))|bla bla


to create a top level directory with artists first letters or something...

My porty would go crazy because it plays the songs in the order they have been copied to the device. There would be a real mess if the first, the third and some other files where in the first folder, the fourth and the second in the next and so on.

Copying the files in the same order as they appear in the playlist is my only reason for using sendtodevice instead of the build in file operations -> move, rename or copy files. Even if i have to copy some dlls to the foobar directory (wich complicates the use of sendtodevice).

I can work around by creating a folder in windows explorer, copy some files there, create the next...

If you are sending the files over all at once, and need it split into folders with at most 80 files, you can use something like:

Code: [Select]
c:\$num($div(%list_index%,80),2)\%artist%-%title%


to split it up.

This component is damn great. Good thing I realised that there was a trick to run my iRiver H10 20GB in UMS mode instead of it's default MTP mode. Now I don't have to keep on going into my MP3 directory just to copy albums over to my iRiver, I can just do it while I'm listening to my music in Foobar.

Hi,
this is a great plugin, but it takes pretty long to copy the files I want to my mp3 player.
I don't know if a feature like this exists but I think a feature that copys a whole playlist on my mp3 player would be great.

EDIT: I forgot to add that setting a mb limit would be really nice along with this feature.

Select all the files in the playlist you want to send and right click and choose send to device, or if you have playlist tabs visible you can right click on a playlist tab and send all the files in the playlist.

Regarding playforsure mentioned a while back, I have a Samsung MP3 with playforsure. As already mentionted, when connected as a device, it doesn't have a drive letter. However, I can still drag and drop mp3s to the device using windows explorer and it will work fine. So I don't think playforsure forces you to use WMP or whatever to enforce DRM. Of course if the audio file is DRM'd, it probably wouldn't work when you drag and drop with windows explorer.

I have just bought a Samsung YP-Z5, however I can not get this plugin to work.

Putting in the path: "My Computer\Samsung YP-Z5\Media\Music\... etc"

When I transfer music I get no error messages, just a "device does not support long filenames please choose a shorter one", but no music actually appears on the player.

Does anyone have any hints as to how to get this working?

Cheers, Matt.

The plugin only works for mp3 players that operate as a USB Mass Storage Device.  Those mp3 players will show up as a drive letter on my computer.

I have found the solution for the Samsung YP-Z5.

Upgrade the firmware to version 2 and then set UMS (universal mass storage) to On the options, et voila you have a drive letter!

If you are sending the files over all at once, and need it split into folders with at most 80 files, you can use something like:

Code: [Select]
c:\$num($div(%list_index%,80),2)\%artist%-%title%


to split it up.



Thank You!

I made it up like this:

Code: [Select]
X:\$num($add($div($sub(%list_index%,1),20),1),2)\$num(%list_index%,3) - %artist% - %title%

20 files eac folder (for better overview), folders starting with "01", files "1" to "20" in folder "01" (with your code there where only 19 files in the first folder).

It seems you don't use the %list-index% provided by foobar, because even if i select only a few files in the playlist, sendtodevice starts with %list_index% at "1"...

Hello,
I am new to Foobar. Currently building my list of plugins and this one is a must. Especially thanks to the use of %list_index% wich makes it possible to keep the plalist order on the mp3player  Thanks.

I regularly update my mp3 usb player (1Gb) with additional songs. Could there be an option to only copy new files ? Would be much faster.

+ 1 to the enhancement request for resampling the songs during tranfer to mp3 with the desired rate (I have many ape and flac songs on my pc which are not playable on the device)

thanks again,

Maybe it's quite from the different area, but I'd like to have an option to copy to my mobile device either via ActiveSync or Bluetooth.  If it's already implemented somewhere, please point it.


As you're presumably on about windows media devices, activesync is likely to be the wrong way to go about it. Once the device is connected and you can browse its contents via explorer all that *should* be needed is a unc path to the storage memory on the card. I don't know if this works on wm devices prior to wm5, but it should on the latter.

Microsoft in their infinite wisdom seemed to have created a crippled filesystem handler for wm devices.I would check if this is fixed on wm5, but i'm not near a windows pc at the moment.

I would love this to work too. My smartphone has a 2gb card running tcpmp and it's a pain to have to use explorer to copy stuff. It's too much to expect the developer to have to deal with the activesync api to support it natively though.

Hi

Would it be possible to have the plugin automatically add a tag containing the date and time the file was sent to the mp3 player using the plugin?

This would be very useful for me because i have a large library but a small player (1 gb). It would enable me to make autoplaylists, sort them by last_sent date and only send the files which i haven't sent to my mp3 player in a long time.

(If there is any other way to do this, please do tell me)

= Release 1.0.5 =
* added option to add SENT_TO_DEVICE timestamp to original file
* remember the last path sent to and auto select it


That clears up the list of requests, other than the ability for foo_sendtodevice  to automatically convert formats.  I have not done much with the api that involves actually processing audio data so I am not sure how exactly that works so if anyone can shed some light on that, I would appreciate the hints.  So far it looks like I would have to do something like this:

Code: [Select]
input_entry::g_open_for_decoding( decoder, file )
decoder.initialize( subsong );
while ( decoder.run ( chunk ) )
{
   // dunno what to do here...
   // somehow write PCM data to a file
}
// here, I think I would have to call lame to encode to mp3...

great plugin! i have one feature request, though:

is it possible to add an option to automatically run a tagging script on the files after copying them?

i'd really appreciate this since i run rockbox on my ipod and rockbox does not support %album artist% and %discnumber%, so i have to run a script on those files to copy the (album) artist to the composer field and to add the discnumber to the album title on every new album.

up to now, the procedure is a little bit complicated, since i have to add the new album folders to a new fb2k playlist and then run the script (because the pl still points to the files on my local drive). when the albums are in different subfolders, that's a little bit annoying.

if this option could be added, i'd have the perfect rockbox-on-ipod-management tool!

let me say that even now it's a great improvement because i do not have to use the file operations box any longer (loading ipod profile, sometimes forgetting that and having trouble etc. etc...) Thank your very much!

enjoy your weekend,

getting back to my suggestion. running tagging scripts after copying might also be useful for those among us who use a simplified genre structure on their mobile devices (like two friends of mine) or those who have album art in their tags (for whatever reason) and want to get rid of it on their mp3 sticks. i think basically it would be an extended version of your timestamp-function.

is there a chance you might work on it someday?

I've added it to the feature requests. 

My first thought would be that in the send to device options, there's a drop down that allows you to select which script to run on the new files.

Hi!

I just discovered your plugin and uses it now for my SE K800i.
But there are two things:

1. If I uses a variable which isn't tagged in a file (%discnumber% in a single album) I get an error message and the file isn't coppied. Making "[ ]" around it doesn't help.
2. On your homepage I discovered the box with some code for converting files. Can I use this feature somehow at the moment? Would be great because I have some flac-files which the mobile can't play.

    * added option for running context menu item on newly created files (for example, you can run a script on the destination files)
    * use foobar2000 native save as playlist function for exporting playlist
    * ask to convert to mp3 if not already mp3 (requires lame.exe)
          o using $filename() for the destination path will not work correctly when converting (it will get the name of the temporary file, rather than the original filename)


the fully qualified path to the lame executable must be setup in the preferences to use the mp3 encoding.  This feature should be considered beta release.  If the lame.exe path has spaces in it, please enclose it in quotations marks.

Hey cwbowron,

I was wondering if there is a way for this component to have the ability to use either the MSC or MTP connection protocols.  My current MP3 player allows you to choose the one you want, but it seems to have problems reading files transferred through the MSC protocol.  This means I have to use the MTP protocol (as well as WMP) to transfer now.

Just thought I would see if this would be possible.

Thanks!

It might be possible, but its not very likely.  I went to great lengths to find my mp3 which acts like a UMS so I didnt have to deal with that stuff, so I dont even have a device to test on.

If someone wants to buy me a fancy media player that uses it, I could try supporting it :-)

Would there be a way to export a certain tag(s) to an external file?  Clearly if you are able to transcode then it would be trivial to pass other arguments for output.

Basically, I have a portable mp3 player that supports scrolling lyrics, but cannot read them when they are embedded in file tags, but only when it exists in an external *.lrc file.  I do not want to store lyrics in external files on my master audio library, so only want to pull that field out upon copying to my portable device.

Any suggestions?

I have a HUGE feature request - support for devices that doesn't get a drive letter. My Creative Zen Touch doesn't get a drive letter, and is instead only listed as the name I've configured it with. I think it has to do with the PlaysForSure firmware. Is this possible at all? I see it's been up before...

I have a request:
It would be pretty cool if you plugin could check if marked files have a special Codec and settings.
Maybe all files which are not mp3, V2 could be converted to the MP3-Player folder?
It would be cool if you could set those settings.

I created a button to send my files to my mp3-player.
But somehow it just works for the active file not for selected files.

Here's my code:

Hi!

I might be looking into the MTP issue the next days. I won't make any promises - but if somebody else tries to do the same thing: Please contact me, maybe we can learn from each other

Hi!

So now I have looked into the MTP issue for a few hours... It is WAY more complicated than usual file copying.
I see no justification for putting so much effort into something for achieving such a simple goal (like copying a file from A to B).

I can see why many manufacturers prefer the MTP approach. It takes the burden of tag scanning, cover art, folder traversing, playlist parsing, etc. from the player to the application.

I can also see now, why MTP is not especially liked around here

cwbowron, would it be possible to add an option to copy the picture from the folder to the device?
I used this external application http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7228 (http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7228) but will simplify dramatically the process to have it integrated.
Basic idea is to copy folder.jpg to same folder where music is been copied.

thx you for the update, and thx Hanno Stock for the copy of album art.

Do you both think it will be possible in a future
-to use metadatas for the name of image to be copied, something like %album%.jpg...?
-to copy "windows hidden files" (my "folder.jpg" have an 'hidden' attribute, so copy does not work) it works
-to use path... ex: "\cover\front.jpg"
-using also "*.jpg" to copy all images
-and multiple choise : "folder.jpg;cover\front.jpg;cover\back.jpg"

Hi,
Maybe I ve found a bug (sorry if this have been already reported)

When I select few tracks to be sent to, like 4 or 5 albums, everything is correct,
but if i select a big number of tracks (idk exactly from how much tracks the problem appears) all my tracks are copied in a wrong folder named with .mp3 at the end.

Maybe then, i am the only one who have this problem... could you tell me?


Example with this:
Code: [Select]
M:\Music\%genre%\$if2(%album artist%,%artist%)\$if(%date%,%date%-,)$if2(%album%,'Singles')\%tracknumber%. %title%.$ext(%_path%)


With few tracks i have:
M:\Electronic\Aphex Twin\2001-Drukqs\
then the tracks :
1. blabah.mp3
2. blobloh.mp3
3. etc...

M:\Rock\The Rolling Stones\1969-Let It Blood\
then the tracks
1. gfhehe.mp3
2. etc...



With a lot of tracks
M\Electronic\Aphex Twin\2001-Drukqs\1. blabah.mp3 (as a folder contening tracks that follow)
then all tracks of all albums selected are included in this root folder, and they are not renamed:
Aphex Twin - Drukqs - 1 - blablah.mp3
Aphex Twin - Drukqs - 2 - blobloh.mp3
...
The Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed - 1 - 1. gfhehe.mp3
etc...


I would be very thanksfull for help or advice.
Cheers

OK lol,
I answer to myself.
It was not the number of track selected what causes the mess.
I found the guilty... damn Richie Hawtin (aka Plastikman) and his tracks named with '***'.
So it was not a bug.
Pfff....
Maybe you should also add '*' to be replaced or delete when found in a trackname.

I also had this same problem. I concluded it was the number of songs I selected, but it would make sense that special characters could break it, too. It usually happened when I added a lot of items to a playlist to export to my flash player. Usually a few thousand songs or more. I never had the problem when it was a single album, but I haven't tried it with items with '*' in the name (or maybe just didn't notice).

In retrospect, it probably was my Aphex Twin discog that broke it, since I also have some Plastikman on there.

Thanks for the info, Kabuki. I know what to avoid adding now, if this is the case.

This is going to seem like a strange request, but...

I keep all my albums in compressed in rar archives. Is it possible to get your plugin to unrar or unzip the tracks from the archive and then copy the uncompressed tracks to the device?

I'm thinking probably not, but would appreciate your thoughts.
Title: foo_sendtodevice
Post by: start78 on 2007-12-14 12:34:54
I keep all my albums in compressed in rar archives.


Why?
Storing mp3s or any other already compressed audio formats in rar-archives doesn't save hdd-space (in worst case it even needs more than uncompressed).
And if you have wav-files compressed in rar: wav is not a format for audio archiving. FLAC would be a better choice because it supports tags and is especially designed for compressing audio.

I know it's your choice but perhaps until now nobody told you that it doesn't make sense at all. At least i don't know any case where compressing audio-files in rar containers would be a clever solution.


AFAIK foobar supports reading archives. Is there a special reason for using foo_sendtodevice instead of foobars own converter/file util?

I want to keep this component fairly simple, so I dont plan to add features like that.  I think its best to let other components generate the list of items to copy, and have sendtodevice simply copy the items.

Actually i don't need foo_sendtodevice any longer because the handling order in foo_fileops changed back to f2kv0.8 style in the newest f2kv0.9.5b8 (files are now handeled in the order of the playlist instead of alphabeticaly).

But i really liked this plugin because it was easy to use. If you need reencoding or playlist-generation, foo_sendtodevice is your plugin!

Request: In the Copy Cover art section there's a place to put the cover source filename you want to transfer.  It would be nice if there was a second (optional) box if you want to use an alternate destination filename.  This would allow you to, for example, keep your covers as folder.jpg and transfer them as album_art.jpg to your sansa device that expects to see files with this alternate name.

I've been looking for a Winamp replacement since 5.5x crashes constantly now under Vista x86. The only thing that keeps me still using it is Winamp's AutoFill (portable) functionality, whereby the player will add tracks to the portable automatically (by pressing a button) based on a certain criteria defined in the configuration dialog (e.g. rating >= "3" AND lastplay ISEMPTY; AutoFill albums only; etc.) and the plugin allows transfer by filename (e.g. H:\<Album>\<filename>). Does this Foobar plugin have those capabilities? If not, would they be something you would consider adding in the future? Foobar looks like my best bet for a replacement player but ultimately my switching depends on the portable functionality.

Thanks!

Using this plugin, I personally miss two features:

1. The possibility to define a list of file formats that get copied and only the remaining once would get transcoded (or vice verca).

2. An option to chose the encoding used. Would it not be possible to use the allready there converter compontent to handle that part?

This program is great if offers all the functionallity I need, except...
It would be great if the program was able to automatically use the next preset in the list, if the previous one did not work.
This is because I've got different usb devices I copy music on and they have different drive letters, when I plug them.

Some remarks:

1. Can the plugin be made more responsive? After choosing "yes" after the mp3 conversion question, fb2k is unresponsive for a couple of seconds, I guess it copies stuff to %temp%. Then the lame thread starts, but fb2k cannot be used all the time.

2. Why restrict it to mp3? My target devices (a lot do) also play AAC files. A converter like command line would be nice...

Hey, I would like to give you some feedback und post some requests in order to improve this plugin:

Additional settings for the cover-image should be added
- e.g. resizing to different resolutions (100x100, 200x200 etc.) and
- possibility to rename the cover using %album%, %artist% strings

What do you think? This would go well with my MP3-Player.

Sendtodevice is great. But it seems has some problem with transcoding to mp3.

I tried two send 1 ape format sound to my device, and I can only hear noise from the target mp3.

After checking, I found when sendtodevice create the temprate wav file for lame to compress, it missed the head of the wave file. Is anybody else had the same issue? or it's only happen on my 0.9.5.4 and 1.1.2 sendtodevice?

There is a way to use Sony / other players natively in MTP mode and therefore this plugin:

Control Panel>> System>> Hardware>> Device Manager

1). Search for Sony Walkman (or other player) in the list of equipment - if you've already plug it in Win XP installed, we have designated it as MTP device
2) press "Update Driver" button
3) the question whether the computer has to connect to the network select "not this time"
4) select "Choose driver from a specific location"
5) select "Do not Search - I will choose the driver to install myself"
6) in the "Show compatible hardware" Windows shows you two options
> you have a choice for drivers: "MTP Device" or "USB Mass Storage Device"
> Choose the second one
7) Now U can use your player as UMS device (with a proper drive letter)

Square brackets is what you need: [%tracknumber%] shows the tracknumber only if it's present.
And finally, where can I find how make my own combination of "track tags"?

If I understood, title formatting reference (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Titleformat_Reference) should be what you're searching for.

The component author has now decided to remove all his Foobar components, including the sendtodevice plugin, unfortunately    This is one feature that I would love Foobar to have, unless I'm missing something (I'm a new user and loving Foobar, glad I converted from Winamp).  I'm pretty much a newbie, is there any other way I could send songs to my mp3 player?  Thanks for any help!

Thanks for this Plugin.
It works great, but i have a little problem with the tagging informations.
I use a Philips GoGear Spark-mp3-player. When i added files, my mp3-player says "unkown album" and "unknown artist" but he show me the correct titlename.

These are my setting by "device path":
G:\Music\%artist%\%album artist%\%album%\%title%.$ext(%_path%)

And these are my tagging informations (for example):
(http://s7b.directupload.net/images/090620/temp/6mrgmy2l.png) (http://s7b.directupload.net/file/d/1831/6mrgmy2l_png.htm)

Whats wrong?

Maybe you should check which tag types (id3v1/id3v2) your mp3 player supports and be sure your files have the same type.

Thanks.
You have right. It only works with ID3v1-Tags.

Thanks.
You have right. It only works with ID3v1-Tags.

... an ID3v.2.3 also - but not ID3v2.4!

Use: Preferences - Advanced - Tagging - MP3 - ID3v2 writer compatibility mode...
I use it always before I put songs on the GoGear.
It is very bad that foobar is not showing tagtype code-extension .3 or .4
Foobar programmers seems to fully ignore that important point.
Philips GoGear sites ignore that point too.

You can use MP3Tag to see the ID3's, but don't change it on GoGear with MP3Tag,
it does'n work!  It seems to work, but it doesn't!
You have to delete the songs and put them again on GoGear! 

It is always a game of luck putting MP3-songs on the GoGear without calling
"Properties" doing a little change (an empty-space to comment) and save it again.
First of all of course: "ID3v2 writer compatibility mode..."

I didn't find out any other way. Tell us if you did.

By the way: Do you know, that you can play FLAC and APE coded songs with GoGear?
Philips doesn't tell it anywhere. (my GoGear is a SA 2840)

Right!

And thanks for the information about "ID3v2 writer compatibility mode...". It works!:)

I have a Philips GoGear SA2920/02 and he can only play *.mp3 and *.wma. But i can test it with FLAC or AAC.

This is a great tool! It works perfect and helped me to put my music for my Audio CD for my car and my Fuze together!

Hey.

I would like to configure this great plugin (thanks again!) to copy whole directory for currently played track,
the directory name is album name and it holds mp3s and some other files (sfv, covers etc.).

It would be great to have all files copied despite only one file is selected,
tagging and dir/file names are to be intact.

Any ideas?

I know there's about zero chance of this happening, but it would be nice if this component was updated for 1.0 so its context menu options aren't buried in the legacy commands section.

Hi
uuh, why are the Downloadlinks down?
I must reinstall my PC (and Foobar too) and now I search for the "send to device"-PI, but all the Links are offline. 

Have one of you a functional Link for me, please?

Thanks...

And now I have an other problem. Ok, it's not really a problem but I hate this.
I would send and sorted my musicfiles by tracknumber. But with the following setting -> "G:\Music\%album artist%\%album%\%tracknumber%\%title%.$ext(%_path%), sendtodevice create as many folders as tracknumbers.

For example (3 track album):
Code: [Select]
G:/music
|_Album Artist
   |_Album
      |_1
         |_(1) stupid.mp3
      |_2
         |_(2) bla.mp3
      |_3
         |_(3) tricky.mp3

But I would have the following:
Code: [Select]
G:/music
|_Album Artist
   |_Album
      |_(1) stupid.mp3
      |_(2) bla.mp3
      |_(3) tricky.mp3

How can I realize this?
Title: foo_sendtodevice
Post by: soul_error on 2010-05-22 23:19:14
try mine :
\Music\%artist%\%date% - %album%\%track% - %title%.$ext(%_path%)

p.s. it's rather obvious

The download url in post #176 does't work for me.

Any chance someone could upload it to a temporary mirror for me?

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I have a problem using this plugin on Win7x64 when it is supposed to transcode FLAC to MP3, resulting in an error:

Quote
Could not update tags (Object not found) on:
"C:\Users\DFusion\AppData\Local\Temp\CWBB011.tmp.mp3"


here's my path template ... Z:\MP3-portable\%list_index%. %title% - %artist% - %album%.$ext(%_path%)

Any idea what might be causing this and/or is there any similar plugin that would copy MP3s and transcode non MP3 formats in one go ?

Thanx,
Maggi

Where do you actually sync? I can only find the configurations for Send To Device in the Properties...

The new version of lame can take flac files as input:

http://www.rarewares.org/mp3-lame-bundle.php (http://www.rarewares.org/mp3-lame-bundle.php)

Download the "LAME 3.99.4 using libsndfile 1.0.25" version.
