Title: foo_browser
Post by: cwbowron on 2006-03-23 20:13:07
I broke off my playlist tree browser into its own component, and changed the way it works a bit.  It now offers browsing in a similar fashion to iTunes.  This should be considered a BETA release.

*  foo_browser adds 5 panels you can add to your columns ui layout, one each for Genre, Artist, Album and Title.  Additional panels can be created in the preferences menu
* By default, foo_browser shows the selection contents in its own playlist named "*Browser*"
* Adds "Browse" to context menu which will populate all the panels from your selections
* initially foo_browser will show entire library.

A future must-have, no doubt

But... it doesn't work : Failed to load DLL: foo_browser.dll
Title: foo_browser
Post by: cwbowron on 2006-03-23 20:34:02
I'm thinking this could possibly be a dependency issue...

I believe it requires msvcrt.dll and msvcr80.dll.

EDIT: Removed dll links

I think this will become a very popular tool.

Great component! All seems to be working mostly fine here so congrats on that.
Only comments I can make are that the ordering of items in the browsers seems to be random which makes selecting difficult, and how do you undo a browse context menu selection to go back to all?

A couple of ideas for aesthetics: adding an option to change the background colour would be great, and removing the foo_browser: part of the titles would make things look neater.

Of course.

And I don't have any msvc... etc in my "C\:Programmi\foobar2000 09" directory.
I only have a msvcrt71 into my regular Foobar 0.8.3 dir, but I don't know if this matters.

I'm on XP SP1.

Hey, let the guy work!

I think this was just a quickly put together thing to prove to himself that he can do it.
And only later he thought to let us know about it.

I agree it's quite a teaser...

Post by: NEMO7538 on 2006-03-23 21:24:46
The concept is attracting, but the library is rescanned too frequently, making it unusable.
There is no manament of VA albums.
The sort order of the playlist is destroyed.
I would suggest (if feasible) to configure each panel with a tagz string.

Great idea anyway

All I can say is...Excellent Component! always wanted an itunes like browser for foobar


A couple of request though

1) Don't show horizontal scrollbars in panels
2) Add a 'refresh' option to the context menu so when tags are updated foobar does't have to be restarted to see the results in the panels
3) Make its own playlist for the displayed results like foo_ui_albumlist

Thanks

Title: foo_browser
Post by: Protoss on 2006-03-23 23:24:33
Very nice man...Just one feature that is a must have, display the items in a set playlist.
Sorting, at least alphabetizing, would be good too. Great job though!
Title: foo_browser
Post by: lav-chan on 2006-03-23 23:38:03
It's a fantastic start, and i bet it'll be one of the more popular components out there, but the things that foosion mentioned are big issues.

A problem that sticks out for me especially is the slowness that comes with resetting the display to all items.


Some basic issues (some of these have been mentioned already):

(1) As said before, resetting the display is slow in some situations.

(2) When the display is updating, the lists in the panels turn grey (as in, window-coloured, not list-coloured). It would look a lot nicer if they just stayed the normal list colour.

(3) There doesn't appear to be any easy way of updating the lists. If i have a genre x and a genre y, and i retag all the genre x files to be genre y, the entry for genre x remains in the list. If i try to click it, it actually causes my foobar to hang.

(4) And, of course, the sorting. Should be alphabetical by default, customisable would be great.


Aesthetic issues:

(1) There should be an option, at least, to disable the horizontal scroll bars. They look kinda gross.

(2) Having the column headers AND the captions is redundant. There should be an option to disable either or both of them (not just the captions).

(3) Colour/formatting/scripting options (like the ones in the album list component) would be nice.

(4) If possible, it would be nice to have an option to 'focus' the selected item in the list. I mean, i haven't used iTunes in a long time, but i think that when you select a genre in the list, the list moves down so that the item you selected is at the top of the list. Maybe some other way of showing what item you've selected (e.g., a right-aligned arrow next to the selected item).




It's a totally great start, though. It'll be a must-have with a little work.

just wondering how i can configure it?
or is that too early for that?

this looks almost exactly like musikCube, winamp media library type functionality, which is awesome

i re arrange my music too often to worry about play lists
thats why this appealrs to me so much

I can confirm this 100% CPU usage
EDIT: Happens when right clicking any panel now :S

I cannot understand the function of the browse item in the context menu. If i right click and select browse it does the same thing if i would click on the artist/album/... name. And this might be a BUG: when you click browser and display one artist there is no way to go back to the whole library without restarting. It should sho all the artists again when I click all...shouldn't it

About the Playlist name...this is a minor thing but...I wish instead of naming it *Browser* it were named "Library' Seems kinda logical to me...maybe that can be implemented when user configurable options (fonts, background border etc) are added to the GUI.

Lastly, thanks for this wonderful plugin!!

1 - The issue with the context menu is this:  Each label in a browser can represent many, many files... especially in the Genre category... So when you right click an item, it has to create the list of all the files that the label represents so that the context menu can be created and called... The more items that the label represents, the longer that process is going to take...

2 - Selecting Browse from the context menu, replaces the contents of ALL browsers with only the tracks that were selected... If you select browse from the context menu, then go back into genre or artist and select "All" that All only represents all the items that were sent over to the browser from the browse command... If you want to go back to the full library, use the main menu option under Library... Usually what happens is that the higher level browsers repopulate the lower level ones when selections are made... So that click on a genre will ripple down through artist, album and title... Then if you select "All" in genre, everything will get populated from the entire contents of the Genre panel...

3 - I envision that I will be making some things configurable such as colors, fonts and browsing playlist name... Possibly even Panel headers and formats... I do not want it to get out of control like Playlist Tree got though, so I will be keeping things reasonable..

maybe something like foo_albumlist could be done in that case...i am presuming right clicking 'all' option in both components returns the same context menu

Use Columns UI's 'layout' configuration. Right-click whatever's there, add vertical splitter, right-click that, add whatever. Play with it, you'll figure it out.


edit:
Right-clicking is now much faster, it only takes maybe a second or two on the 'all' item in the Genre browser. Awesome job.

Post by: randal1013 on 2006-03-24 18:47:31
great component, but a few suggestions:

custom sorting

custom display like album list panel
example: for the album panel, i'd like to see the date of the album as well as the title, and i'd like to be able to make a new panel altogether.

have an option to remove the caption. i know which list is the artists and which is the albums. the caption just wastes space.

option to remove the horizontoal scroll bar.

and tell it which playlist to go to. being able to use the %_view% like in album list panel would be the ideal option for me.


if those things were in place, this component would be perfect.
Title: foo_browser
Post by: julien_32 on 2006-03-24 18:49:48
some bugs

-when I choose a genre, album list is not sorted.

-*browser* playlist don't use "%path_sort%", or "Sort incomming files by" in preferences, and then there is a problem multi-artist album. I use ALBUM ARTIST and ARTIST.

-for a track with two or more genre/artist metadata, display like %<genre>% (and not %genre%) in albumlist.

excuse me for my english, and thanks for the plugin

Are you already thinking to let us:

1 - ... assign whichever tag to whichever panel?

2 - ... have an unlimited number of panels? (Or, at least, more than four.)

3 - ... have a sort of a master filter on top of the panels array? Say filtering with genre without wasting a panel.

4 - ... select more than one item in a panel? I know that that was a limit set by Windows listview control so, maybe, now that you are not using that any more... (I think)

4b - ... in that case, being able to choose the boolean operator to apply to the in-panel selection?

5 - ... save somewhere a particular panels layout and setting (with a custom name) and being able to retrieve it and quickly reload it at need, maybe choosing it from a list of presets (with its panel too) This list could also work as a sort of master panel (above the master filter mentioned above. The preset should store the master filter settings too.)
This could be seen like a PLT query node but with the panels as the different levels of its tree.

6 - ... choose the path the inter-panels filtering should follow. Now we have a static path: genre->artist->album->title. It would be useful to have the filtering follow the sequence of panels in Columns UI lay-out tab from top to bottom. Sometimes I'd like choosing a title and in the next panel see just the different performers that sings it. Or even more choosing "piano" (or, with the multi line selection "piano + bass + drums") and get only the tracks (but also the artists, the years etc) that match the previous panels filtering.

7 - ... of course, having the #tag# working in the panels too...


I could go on for another hour but I save something for later...

Thanks.

Its the TreeView that does not allow multiple selections... ListView allows them, and the panels should support them... Hold down control to individually select items, or use shift to select a range...

Just my opinion: I would really prefer to see that this time the "feature explosion" will not happen. Keep it slim, think about every additional feature/option in the preferences as sth. evil and only implement it if there's no other way to fulfill the purpose of the plugin.

One other thing: If there are multiple tag values I wouldn't handle every combination as a separate entry but only list single elements (especially with genres).

I mentioned those points only because sometimes, cwbowron has showns us to take inspiration from our requests or hints.
And because I think that it's easier to change things at the beginning of a project, when you have less things already made, than when you are already deeply buried under lines of code...

As you can see, I started my post as a reminder, not as a feature request.

Just in case he hadn't thought some of the issues I mentioned.

For the life of me I can't mimic the screenshot (like Itunes). I managed to get the Browser windows lined up horizontally, but I cannot place the playlist view under them, only beside them horizontally. I've tryed every splitter combination I can think of but I'm just not figuring it out. Could someone show me exactly how to organize it in the layouts tab? I know it's something simple and I'll feel real stupid afterwards...

It should be something like this (this is just with the browser panels and play list, if you want more stuff you'll have to add it obviously):

Great plugin.

I have a suggestion to make it even more versatile. In addition to the browsers you have, add a user-configurable browser. The user can configure this browser to use any specified tag. Have the user enter as many tags as he wishes. Then in that configurable browser, you can right click and select which Tag you'd like to use.

Here is a mock-up of what I mean: Picture (http://sv1.randomcrap.net/uploads/files/0/foo_browser.gif)

I meant why not just make the four or whatever panels, and then make each of those four customisable. By default they would be %genre%, %artist%, %album%, %title%, but you could change them to anything you wanted.

<_<


edit:
Although i suppose the ability to add a bunch of tags to a list and then change it on the fly would be cool for people who don't want to have them all shown at once.
Title: foo_browser
Post by: Killmaster on 2006-03-25 06:36:55
Good work so far. A few suggestions:

1.) I think the seperate panels could be eliminated altogether. I can't think of any real reason not to have them next to each other, and it's kind of a pain to have to add them all yourself. I don't know if the SDK has anything in there to detect whether a panel is vertical or horizonal, but if there is then this should be feasible.

2.) Maybe you could steal some code from the albumlist? The albumlist takes about 1.5 seconds to refresh, while your plugin takes a full 13 seconds (not to mention freezing foobar in the process) if I click on "all"

3.) If you go with #1, maybe you could make it configurable similar to the albumlist? What I mean by that is allow for people to make new views the same way you create them in the albumlist preferences. This would also allow for infinite panels and whatnot without cluttering up the columns_ui menus.

4.) In the meantime, could you at least modify the "artist" panel to use %album artist%? My VA albums are all spread around

5.) The sorting on the artist panel is odd. It goes A-Z for some of them, then +/-, then a second set of artists A-Z. I can't find any real pattern for this; I thought maybe it had to do with album artist but I don't think so.

Right. All I'm talking about is instead of having to open one panel for artist, one panel for album, etc., just having one panel with all of them within it and having that be fully configurable (see #3)

ah, i see ... you're right, though i can think of some situations which could be solved easily by having them apart. like vertical arrangement, 2x2 matrix arrangement etc. plus it's not that time consuming and cumbersome to add all of them in the layout's dialog ...

... and you can customize each one differently, hopefully...

It would be cool if a double click on some genre / artist / album, etc... made the player begins the playback of the corresponding playlist

It seems like the right thing to expect

I've just downloaded this plugin which looks fine.
It is loaded by my Foobar2000 v0.9, listed in the "Installed Media Library Viewers", but I cannot activate it (active & configure buttons are disabled). Did I missed something?

Nevertheless, I am wondering if I could use this plugin or "playlist tree" to look for duplicates as described here (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=42952).

EDIT: move the request to dedicated topic

Add browser panels via the "Preferences > Display > Columns UI > Layout" tab
They can be found in the Context menu under "Insert Panel > Panels > Browser

Although i suppose the ability to add a bunch of tags to a list and then change it on the fly would be cool for people who don't want to have them all shown at once.

Maybe I didn't get the point of this plugin, but if you do that, what would be the difference with foo_uie_albumlist ? This plugin is some kind of multi-albumlist no ?

Edit: I just tried it, when I added the Title panel foobar got frozen for 2 or 3minutes (I have quite a lot of files), while it takes the database about 1 or 2 seconds to build a playlist with all my files, so I guess there could be some performance improvement there. I don't really have any use for the Title panel though but I thought you should know.
Apart from that little performance problem it works well for me, but as it is I prefer foo_uie_albumlist which allow me to use my custom tags.

Good luck with the 2pages of requests

What EXACTLY to I need to make this componenet work? (in terms of files, foobar versions, etc.)
Title: foo_browser
Post by: Seldaek on 2006-03-25 20:24:31
foobar2000 v0.9 (last version)
It required some MSVCR*.dll before but I think that's sorted out now. And make sure you have the last foo_browser.dll by downloading it from the first post.

I guess if you only have one browser panel, yeah, it'd be pretty much the same as albumlist. I can't imagine why you'd only use one browser panel though.

With two or more, though, it'd work the same as it does now as far as filtering out tracks, it'd just have selectable methods to filter.

So, Fractal_Mortality, you need the Columns UI plugin which is not installed per default anymore with the 0.9.
In case of the windows DLL, I have .NET 1.1 and 2.0 installed on my PC, so I do not have pb with missing components.

I've added some panels (context menu: Panel -> Browser [Artist] for instance)
So the Browser is now activated.
But I still can not add anything in "Preferences > Display > Columns UI > Layout" and in "Preferences -> Media Library", the buttons for Browser are still desactivated, so I can't change the config.

Ok thanks everyone, it's working... I'm just going to wait till the pluging (and all of the plugins for 0.9) are a bit more polished.

Release 1.0beta4

Changes:
Quote
    *  only sort by active headers
    * allow multiple tags (use "tag" for multitag, "%tag%" for comma delimted version)
    * sort columns individually
    * preferences page - change headers and formats
    * I messed up the order of the guid's for generating panels... so I generated new ones... This means that your layouts are going to be messed up... sorry...
    * text color option
    * background color option
    * use timers to avoid multiple updates on item changes

Thanks for the excellent update, unfortunatly it crashed.

It happened when I clicked on 'Apply' on the 'Layout' tab.

I got an errormessage and a failure.txt. When I clicked 'OK' on the error I got a second failure.txt. The error was roughly: 'The command read couldn't be executed in memory'.

First failure.txt

I'm able to reproduce the crash. I did it once now:
I added Genre panel (%genre%) to Layout and clicked 'Apply'. Everything works.
I added Artist panel (%album artist%) to Layout and clicked 'Apply'. Crash. This time with only one failure.txt, but another error: 'Runtime error: pure virtual function called.'

Third one:

Hm, i got a crash. Here's what happened.

- replaced the DLL with the new one

- ran foobar, my panels were missing like you said

- went into preferences, lower-cased the header names and changed the formatting of the artist and #title panels

- went into Layout and re-added the four panels

- hit Apply, hit Save All

- crash

It gave me a crash log, if you want me to post that i will. (Don't want to clog up the thread if i don't have to.)


After restarting foobar, though, the panels appear to be working the way they should. I set my artist tag to $if(%dbartist%,%dbartist%,%artist%) (dbartist is a tag i use to basically make the album list look better) and that's working great. Everything looks awesome.

I did notice one inconsistency though. In the genre panel, tracks that don't have a genre tag show up as '<MISSING>' right under the '[All]' item. Tracks that don't have an album or title tag, though, show up as '?'. It should be one or the other, for consistency's sake.


Very trivial feature request: It'd be neat (although not life-or-death necessary) if we could change the name of the 'all' and 'missing' entries in the panels. :x




Continues to be a great plug-in, though. Good job.

The issue with the consistancy is because when using a "%tag%" format, the result comes directly from the formatting... if you use "tag" it checks to see how many of those tags exist and uses all of those, if none are found it uses "<MISSING>"... as a workaround, I changed the default album tags to use $if2(%artist%,<MISSING>) so that if the tag doesnt exist it will show up as MISSING too...

Oh. Duh, i should've figured that out on my own. Thanks. :p

Don't know if the new one fixed the crash since i only got it the one time, but it seems to be working in any case.

Post by: lav-chan on 2006-03-26 20:01:12
Here's a tricky question: Is there some kind of blank character i can enter to make my 'empty' entries always appear at the top of the list? I mean, no matter what i set it to, there's always the chance that i could have a tag that begins with a parenthesis or a dollar sign or something and then the item for tracks with empty tags gets pushed down to some arbitrary spot on the list.

Is there such a blank character?


edit:
Actually, never mind, i figured it out. $char(13) works, if anyone else is dealing with this issue.

First of all, Chris, thank you for this plugin.  I love it!

Is it currently possible to use both "tag" and "%tag%" in the formatting?  I like how "tag" lists all the artists I have in each multiple artist track, but I'd also like to sort it so that artists that have a "The " prefix can be shown in alphabetical order without taking the prefix into account.

I've tried using the following:
Code: [Select]
$if($stricmp('The ',$substr(%artist%,1,4)),$substr(%artist%,5,$len(%artist%)),%artist%)
, but couldn't use "artist" with it.
Title: foo_browser
Post by: lav-chan on 2006-03-27 01:56:27
It's kind of an ugly (and probably slow) way to do it, but you could try this maybe:

$if($stricmp('The ',$substr($meta(artist,1),1,4)),$substr($meta(artist,1),5,$len($meta(artist,1))),$meta(artist,1))
[, $if($stricmp('The ',$substr($meta(artist,2),1,4)),$substr($meta(artist,2),5,$len($meta(artist,2))),$meta(artist,2))]
[, $if($stricmp('The ',$substr($meta(artist,3),1,4)),$substr($meta(artist,3),5,$len($meta(artist,3))),$meta(artist,3))]
[, $if($stricmp('The ',$substr($meta(artist,4),1,4)),$substr($meta(artist,4),5,$len($meta(artist,4))),$meta(artist,4))]
[, $if($stricmp('The ',$substr($meta(artist,5),1,4)),$substr($meta(artist,5),5,$len($meta(artist,5))),$meta(artist,5))]

(and so on depending on how many different artist fields you think you might have in a given file)

Hey cwbowron, thanks for this plugin. It keeps getting better and better. Just a couple observations:

In the newest version (1.0beta5), the files sent to the '*Browser*' playlist seem to be in random order.

I know you're trying to avoid feature bloat, and this is pretty minor, but do you think the playlist name will be configurable in the future?

Actually, disregard my last post, i think i know a better way. The best way, probably. Try this:

$meta_sep(artist,', ')

So if you have ARTIST=Bob and ARTIST=Joe and ARTIST=Steve, it'll show up like:

Bob, Joe, Steve

I guess you can just use that in place of %artist%, i assume it sorts in alphabetical order? :shrug:



Also, agreed on sorting, that needs to be fixed please/thanks. :p

Thanks for the suggestions lav-chan, but neither seemed to work.  The first suggestion is what I was looking for, but using the $meta(artist,0) in place of %artist% actually produced only [All] and <MISSING> and nothing else in the Artist browser.

I tried $meta(artist) alone as well and that produced the same result, so it seems that the $meta function does not work for the browser formatting.

cwbowron,

I'm not clear on the distinction between adding to the playlist and adding to playback queue. If they are the same, read on, otherwise neglect the rest of my post.

As it is now left or right clicking on a field in the browser panels changes the content of the playlist. This renders the right click context option add to playback queue obsolete, since the playlist is overwritten with that right click selection anyway. Does that make sense?

Oh... huh. You're right, $meta doesn't work there. I have a bunch of $if and $stricmp thingies in my formatting and they all work fine, it's just $meta and $meta_sep that aren't working.

When I have the panels in focus, my global hotkeys doesn't work. I have to put something else in focus first. Quite annoying.

Also, there's a small black border around the panels when I set the background to the dark colour

Yes, that's a problem due to the way I was detecting whether to use the TAGZ formatting or use the multiple tag method... my original method was to test whether there was a "%" in the string... if you were just using $meta() commands there would be no %... I will be switching so that the test is whether there is a % or a $ in the string.

The sorting is better, but i think it still needs work. Could you make it use the default sorting string (the one in the 'General' preferences)? That would be amazing.


mimeryme's problem seems to be solved, in any case. $if($stricmp('The ',$substr($meta_sep(artist,', '),1,4)),$substr($meta_sep(artist,', '),5,$len($meta_sep(artist,', '))),$meta_sep(artist,', ')) works the way i think he wants it to.


And i see what aliumalik is talking about. Horizontal scroll bars do appear sometimes when they're not needed, and then they go away if you resize the panel. :shrug:

Nice update, however:

Initial state where it sends everything to play list is still not sorted right

Also clicking an album in album panel, then clicking [All] in album panel does not sort right but sorts all tracknumbers 01's and 02's and so together in groups. Switching to another artist and then click the artist itself again does put the tracks in the right order (as in grouped per album) though.

I just gave it a try and found following issues:

1) The browse playlist isn't sorted here and I cannot find any option for how it should be sorted (I would propose to use the "Sort incoming files by" string from the preferences (general)).

2) A button/context menu option for repopulating the panels since when a tag has changed they don't seem to adapt (you have to restart foobar2000 atm).

I sort of liked the way the Browser playlist was automatically activated. Could you add that back as an option? Also, could we have the option of changing the playlist name?

I'm not sure how the sorting is supposed to be working right now. For me, it sorts by album whenever I make a selection but doesnt seem to take track numbers into account. Can we customize this?

(or something to that affect) No apps I know of take advantage of it though. Which is why I "fixed" all my years to the song release. then include the album release in the comments. Way over kill I know but I really do listen by decade alot.

Actually, that formatting produces the same results as my initial format string.  It's listing all the artists of a track as one entry in the list as opposed to keeping them separate.

I think my initial description is inexact.

I'd like to maintain the separation of artists afforded by using the multi-tags format 'artist,' but have the list sorted to ignore the 'The ' prefix.  For example, if a track has the artists "Bongo, Alamo, The Bills & Acro" in separate ARTIST tags, I'd like to see the list display:

Acro
Alamo
(The )Bills
Bongo

I enclosed 'The ' in parantheses as my initial attempt trimmed the text, but perhaps that can be optionally shown.  My intention is so that  I can browse songs an artist performed on without having the list show the entry "Bongo, Alamoa, The Bills, Acro" and have that track excluded from being browsed.

I don't know if that's any clearer, but it's okay.  I don't need my list sorted so, just thought it'd be nice if I were able to.

Thanks again for your efforts.

Cool beans, thanks for the option to rename the play list (and the better sorting, although i still wish it'd use the default one from general preferences wink wink wink). And the auto-activate option, that's rad too.

Questions, though:

o if it looks like TAGZ it will be formatted using the first item in the list... (not necessarily the first item that shows up in the playlist though, due to sorting)

I can't figure out what you mean by 'formatted using the first item in the list'. Can you explain?

Quote
o %_browser_panel% will tell which panel did the activating...

This is cool i guess, but could you explain how somebody might use %_browser_panel% in a formatting string?


Also, feature request: Would it be possible to define a middle-click action for items in the browser panel? I personally would love it if middle-click sent the contents of the item to the active play list. Drag-and-drop would be an alternative, i guess it could accomplish that just as well. (I don't know if you can easily enable drag-and-drop using that list control, though, i'm not really a programming expert or whatever.)


Great job though, it's almost perfect.

For example if you wanted to make the browser playlist name dependant on the genre of the files... you could use "%genre%" as the browser playlist name and the "%genre%" tag will come from the first item in the list of handles for the items sent to the playlist, but its not necessariyl the item what will show up first in the playlist.

Quote

As a simple example, you might want to browse the items in a different playlist depending on what you are browsing... so you might do something like this: (note I havent tested this)

Code: [Select]
$if($less(%_browser_panel%,1),Mutliple Genres,$if($less(%_browse_panel%,2),Multiple Artist,Other)))

Post by: alphaex32 on 2006-03-28 19:11:36
I know what mimeryme is talking about and I'd like to be able to do the same thing. Basically, you would need to be able to use more than one string for each column so a single file could be defined by more than one item in the browser. I, for example, want to do this with the "mood" tag that I've been getting from AMG. You would have to parse the tag between commas. For example:
"Energetic,Confident,Aggressive" would be parsed and each mood would be seperated in the list:

Energetic
Confident
Aggressive

This would most likely make the browser very slow, but it would be useful for having multiple genres, artsts, etc. on a single track. The only way I could think to do this would be to create a new tagz character that would seperate the strings (maybe "+").

Bug.

Put %genre% in playlist name box, then deleted all the existing playlists.
When I click on an item in a panel I can see a new playlist (named from the genre) is created but no tracks are shown.
Select in a panel an item with different genre and you see a new playlist is created but not shown (I unchecked auto activation). If you activate the new playlist you see tracks in it and if you select the first one now you can see tracks in there too.

FQ. It would be nice if with a Ctrl down, the click on an item would add it (them) to the last activated (or maybe the last created) playlist.

Better would be if the *browser* playlist would be a separate Playlist view with its own tabs etc.

Thanks.

(Of course, as a PLT long time users, I wonder if, one day, we well have panels showing the different sublevels of a PLT node having PLT as the top panel...)

Yes, I was able to reproduce this.  It looks like the problem is this... If you create a playlist that becomes the active playlist by default (i.e. its the only playlist) but never directly activate it, it never displays its items.

I am implementing a work around so that if the browser playlsit is the only playlist it is automatically activated.

there is no way to change fonts size / font.

Well I know that it is not very important for you,

Thinking of this:

Browse playlist = %__codec%

Browser panel 1 = Genre

When I click on an item in the genre panel (but maybe in the others too), it would be useful to get one playlist for MP3 and one for wavpack each one with the its encoded files..., wouldn't it?

Maybe a checkbox in the preferences to switch it on or off.

Of course not just for codec.

Maybe also the last two panels instead of the browser playlist(s).

(I'm imagining a graphical way to set the dependancies among panels - somenthing like that MS Query structure window... or LabView wires, if you know it.
Each panel would have one input and n outputs and we could tie them with wires. The browser playlist(s) would be special panel(s) with just the input.
In this way, the same panel outputs could be wired to more than one panel input...
Maybe too much.........................................

I'm doing this from memory, so i haven't tested it, but i think this should work.... In your first panel (the letters), you would just put something like this in the format field:

$upper($left(%title%,1))

The $upper() will make sure you don't get duplicated letters (e.g., separate entries for 'a' and 'A'). Take it out if you don't want it to work that way.

And then in your second panel (the artists), you'd just put your standard artist entry (you could just use %artist% if you don't want to do anything fancy).

If you have any artists that start with punctuation marks, you'll probably run into the same kind of annoyance that i did.

I would think the $replace function might be your friend:

Quote
$replace(A,B,C)   Replaces all occurrences of string B in string A with string C.


or the $strchr

Quote
$strchr(X,Y)   Finds first occurrence of character Y in string X.


You would still have to enumerate all the punctuation characters though.

If there were a way to get the character code as a number from a character it might be easier but I didnt see any way to do that in the base title formatting documentation (i.e. the reverese of the $char() function).

$left($substr(%_path%,10,$len(%_path%)),$sub($strchr($substr(%_path%,10,$len(%_path%)),'\'),1))

Release 1.0.9 - Added a selectable double click action.

You should be able to choose any context menu command to run when you double click an item.

Don't ask for middle click, alt-double click, shift double click, control double click options... I want to keep this fairly simple... any thing that can be accessed by double clicking can also be selected from the context menu, or consider adding hotkeys if you want multiple options..

Changing the selection color requires overriding some of the functionality of the list view so I doubt that is going to happen anytime soon...

Hm, that's cool....

Does foobar not have an 'add to active play list' feature? All i can see is 'send to playlist' (which is annoying because that box pops up and then you have to select from the drop-down list).


edit:
Never mind, i think i just needed foo_utils. Awesome, thanks for adding that.

Working really well. Would it make sense to have ENTER do the same thing as a double-click when a browser pane is focused? It would help when using keyboard navigation.

Oh well. 

Also, there is an extremely annoying bug with the horizontal scrollbar. I have the panel resized so it shouldn't be there (ie: the panel is wide enough to fit the contents in without scrolling). However, as soon as I restart foobar its back. If I resize the panel, even 1px, it'll disappear until I restart again.

Did I miss something or isn't it possible to use for example %<genre>% to display tracks with multiple tag values seperatly for each of the multiple values.
Example: a genre tags contains the multiple values Metal\Death\Technichal and is displayed in the genre panel under Metal as well as under Death and Technichal instead of displaying it under Metal, Death, Technichal.
Hope you got me and it's possible to implement if it isn't yet.

You use 'genre' (instead of '%genre%').

I just got an idea. If you look at musikcube, it uses a similar browser system. What I like about it, though, is that when you click on the panel headers you can change them. So, for example I could change to any one of the five presets quickly. Also, speaking of presets, it would be nice if we could define more than the 5 presets and give us a way to quickly rearrange them. You could use a listbox, for example, in the settings dialogue with all of the panel presets.

If i remember right, i think someone asked about saving states between sessions for the album list or something like that, and the developer basically said that that was too hard to be worth it.

listviews dont have an option to turn off the horizontal scroll without overriding some functionality, so it probably isnt going to happen...

Ok, but i have an idea. What about saving the headers size. If i change the size of the header soo it doesnt goes under the vertical scrollbar then the horizontal scrollbar will never show up.

I hope you can understand my terrible inglish...
Title: foo_browser

If that's reasonably possible that sounds like an awesome idea, actually. I didn't even know you could resize the headers 'til just now.

Am I doing something wrong...

I add a directory to the "*browser*" playlist, it successfully adds all of my mp3's. Nothing is shown in the foo_browser Artist window. I click away from the *browser* playlist, then click back...and all my files disappear.

Wtf?

The *browser* playlist is the destination of the tracks (files) you choose clicking into the browser panels.
If you want to choose a playlist (instead of the FB library) as the source FOR the browser panels, you have to add your dir (or files) into another playlist (call it "Browser source", if you like), select all files in it and then use the context menu item "browse". Then, the panels will be populated with only the content of your "browser source" playlist and when you click on items in the panels their content will be sent to the *browser* playlist.

for the fourth time now...foo_browser shows horizontal scroll bars even if there is no need for them...even in an extreme secnario

add only one panel on top for artist
add another panel below it 'playlist view'

the bug appears randomly...just shutdown foobar and start again...keep doing that and you will see the bug...

Please someone confirm this...its really irrittating...cause you have to change the column width very slightly and the horizontal bars are gone....


Thanks

Dont have to save states between sessions, just not to remplace the playlist at the begining.

Is there some way I can get some sort of "Library View" listing all folders in my music "Database". I used this feature in the old "playlist tree" plugin to display / get quick accessto my latest tracks which I store in a seperate folder.

Sorry if this has been up before. I tried searching but couldnt find anything related in the newer threads.

Would it not be possible to just crop the titles when they get to a length that would create scrollbars? Sorry if that's blindingly obvious and already been said, but it ocurred to me just now

Hi,
thanks for this plugin.
I've just downloaded the 1.0.9.
I would like to have a panel per file extension, so I had %_filename_ext% as format for the 5th panel in browser configuration. But I does not do what I would like. How can I do that?
(I would like to have the categories MP3, MPC, OGG, etc)

Furthermore, would it be possible to optimize the refresh when foobar is loaded and the plugin is set to "automatically activate" ? I mean to load the lists of the browser in another thread, so that foobar can be used without waiting for this loading?

Erm, yes, you are using the List control, if I'm not mistaken, and it is not very flexible. Isn't it possible to use the MS FlexGrid control instead - it is much more customizable and it could satisfy all the above wishes and then some.

Sorry, if this is obvious/stupid/etc...

Release 1.1.0
Quote
   * True multiple panels
          o unlimited number of panels
          o shift right click on panels to change their format / headers
    * Fixed issue with unncessary horizontal scrollbar occuring when vertical scrollbar added
    * Hide Horizontal Scrollbar Option
          o Resizing magic


You layouts are going to get messed up again, but hopefully for the last time... I implemented true multiple panels, so you can add as many panels as you want... In the preferences, you can add configurations by adding lines to the headers, formats, and sorts options.  Use control+enter to create a newline... Configurations should be in order of precedence...

The hide horizontal scrollbar options is somewhat of a hack so during resizing you might temporarily see a scrollbar but when the panel gets repopulated it should be sized correctly...

I could not find anything about using FlexGrid that was not about Visual Basic or MFC.  foo_browser is a non-MFC app.

If you just want the file extension, you would put this in the format:

$upper($ext(%_filename_ext%))




cwbowron, that's really awesome. That's kind of what i had in mind way back in the first few pages when i was talking about the ideal way of doing this component. It works great, thanks.

One extra thing which would be really awesome : depending on each panel is clicked, if it were possible to send to different playlists (eg. Album browser would send to an album-style-formatted playlist, and Track browser would send to a Single-style-formatted one)

First crash!

I set the double-click action to "play" and found that a lot of the time it didn't actually do this. There was no real pattern to what happened: the first double-click on an Artist worked, but then the second didn't until I'd double-clicked on an Album.  Then Artist worked again, and then Year stopped and so on and so on. After several double-clicks it performed an illegal operation and crashed.

It also happened when I tried again.

If you'd like a crashlog, here one is:

you can use %_browser_panel% in your playlist name to determine which panel was clicked...

@cwbowron : I was thinking about making a columnsUI configuration with some columns that toggle on some playlists, and others for other playlists.  As such, say I select the "classical - composer" panel, it could enter a "classical" playlist, which would list by composer instead of performing artist, etc.

Do you think such a thing is implementable?

Sorry, I jumped the gun thinking my initial sorting question was solved.  With my initial string that I was using to try sorting via the format, I was able to sort by the first artist tag on a file.  Unfortunately on files with more than one artist, it is still sorting based on the first artist tag on the file, but the list just doesn't display that first artist's name.

So, I thought the problem was solved until I noticed the inconsistencies.  Anyhoo, I'll revisit the issue if I come up with a sorting string that works with what I have in mind.

Could you now start on optimizing the plugin instead of new features? Here foobar is now using 330 MB of memory and even then when I select ie. a genre with many artists under it it has to load very long before displaying those artists and their albums etc.

I just had a crash within the first minute of trying out the new version. Here's how to reproduce it: Create a new instance of the browser panel, double click on one of the fake entries instead of choosing a preset. This leads to an instant crash. My bet is on an out of bounds array access.

Is there something wrong with the sort criteria or am i just stupid?

If i put $if($stricmp($left(%artist%,4),'the '),$substr(%artist%,5,$len(%artist%)),%artist%) as the sort criteria for the artist panel, isn't that supposed to make the browser panel ignore the word 'the' at the beginning of artist names? In other words, 'The All-American Rejects' should follow 'Alkaline Trio' instead of the 'The 5 6 7 8s', yeah?

I've restarted foobar and everything and there doesn't seem to be a change. So is the sorting thing not working or do i just totally misunderstand its purpose?

Great plugin though !

How can I add another formating option to the 5 already available ? If I try to click in the free space below an existing line, or press the enter/return key at the end of the last line already in there, nothing happens.

Another unpleasant bug: If you use tab to change the fields in the configuration (from Headers to Formats for example) the whole next Column gets highlighted. I almost deleted all of my personal settings a minute ago, because I pressed Tab and immediately typed in my formatting string, overwriting the whole Formats column for all my presets. Had to kill the foobar2k process in order to not lose my config

I have to admit, I haven't quite understood the %_browser_panel% tag, maybe that would be the way to go, but I think my feature request is worth a shot *g*:

An option to move a line up or down in the configuration would be nice, so it would be easier to make some changes to my formattings and then moving them around so the uppermost panel is the first doing the filtering etc.

I just added a new "browse by Letter" option, then tried to figure out, why it wasn't doing what I wanted it to do (filter the Album Panel to the right by first letter) - until I realised that it might be a good idea to put it in the first line in the configuration. Would have been nice to have a quick way to move it up there.

Anyway, I greatly appreciate your work, the panels are an even nicer way to browse my collection than the sorted playlist tree I used before

How do you manually refresh a panel?

Is there any way that when you click on something, in which the resulting selection still includes the currently playing track, it keeps playing from that track?

Just its annoying when I select a new view, and then it starts playing all the way from the beginning again unless I interrupt the track :/

Great plugin!

I have a problem though. As I have a lot of various artists albums, the artist pannel is populated with a lot of artists that only have one or two tracks in my colection. This make me difficult to select other artists that have full albums; is in this case where searching by artist makes sense. So, it would be possible to filter the panel by the number of files that have the tag? For example, don't show the artists that don't appear in more than 10 tracks.

Thank you for your plugin

Oh, OK, that helps. That updates it.

I'm not sure if it's a bug or if i just messed up, but my sort string still isn't working. It does something -- it removes all the artists that begin with 'the ' from the list. This is the same sort string i'm using in the play list, though, and that works fine, so i think something's wrong with Browser. Unless, again, i'm mistaken about how the sort criteria is supposed to work. :/

Post by: fabiospark on 2006-04-03 21:06:09
I'm testing the thing a bit. Let me ask you some questions.

1)  I created 8 panels presets and I list them from top to bottom:

Genre
Style
Artist
Performer
Instrument
Instruments
Performers
Title

I have this kind of a layout:

Code: [Select]
Genre|Artist|Style|Instrument|trackinfo
Title|columns playlists
     |Performers
     |Instruments


It seems to me that Style and Artist are both children of Genre at the same level.
When I click on an item in Artist nothing changes in Style and viceversa.
Am I correct?

2)  In preferences, it would be nice having a column where to choose the parent panel (or the antecedent) for each panel config line).

In this way we will be able to have more than one panel at the same level with the ability to choose which ones and which their parent will be.
(This makes me think of cubism a little as we will be able to see different sides of our collections at the same time.)


3)  Somewhere you talked about n panels: will we have space for storing more than 8 presets, one day?

4)  Maybe could be useful being able to choose to not show "All" in some children panels...

Thanks.

Yes, thats a bug in the input control, that I have fixed in my development version.

I would strongly advise against having more than a few panels though, because speed is going to be an issue.

The order of precedence is exactly the order of the items in the edit boxes in the preferences.  There is no support for sibling levels and multiple children, etc and I dont believe that adding that is going to likely.

I still think there must be something wrong with the sort criteria. If i try to do anything related to the tags displayed in the panel, they just get removed from the list.

e.g., if i put $replace(%artist%,'the ','test ') in the sort box, it just removes every artist with the %artist% field from the browser. Same thing happens if i try $substr(%artist%,2,$len(%artist%)). Just removes it entirely.

I'll look into it.

You may want to think about using the sort string as the formatting string and sorting by '*' though, because it will be faster, due to the implementation.

Post by: lav-chan on 2006-04-04 00:07:01
Well, it's not really life-or-death or anything. I just wanted to try to get the browser to ignore the word 'the' at the beginning of artist names without actually changing the way it displays the artists. (That's the way i have it set for my play lists.) If i can't get it to work for some reason, it's not a horrible tragedy. But it'd be nice i guess.

Title: foo_browser
Post by: metal_termite on 2006-04-04 04:37:15
The last few revisions have been awesome.

A simple suggestion regarding user-friendliness though. You might want to document the <CTRL>+<ENTERR> function somewhere in the browser preferences window. Or simplify the process entirely and implement an "add new" button in the browser preferences window, similar to how the album list views preferences operates. Whereas you'd have your list of headers and the following <up> <down> <delete> <add> buttons. Double clicking a header brings up a popup window where the three fields can be edited. Like I said, mimicking how the album list edits its views.

Thank you cwbowron for the wonderful plugin.

I am trying to accomplish the same thing as lav-chan and I have been having similar issues. This is the sort string I have been using, it has worked in the past.

Code: [Select]
$if($stricmp($left(artist,3),The),$substr(artist,5,$len(artist)),artist)


When this is placed in the formats field and the sort field is * the artists with 'the ' at the beginning are sorted as they should be, without the 'the' at the beginning. However, when placed in the sort field the results are not sorted as they should be. It is difficult to discern a pattern for the most part the fields seme to be sorted alphabetically but there are places where random albums appear for no reason.

Never mind, after some combination of refreshing the browsers and shift+right clicking the display is now sorting and displaying in the desired format.

I havent yet been able to reproduce this.

and it seems to work correctly...
Title: foo_browser
Post by: lav-chan on 2006-04-04 14:43:05
That 'artist' thing is kinda weird, i don't really understand how it works. Your replace function seems to work correctly when i do that, but it sorts all weird -- for some reason it goes full albums -> <MISSING> -> single tracks. The only thing that separates single tracks from full albums in my library is the 'garbage' tag, and i have no idea why the browser panel would be looking at that if i didn't tell it to. Or why '<MISSING>' comes in the middle. Totally weird, you might have to explain that one to me.

But yeah, it does, for example, place 'The All-American Rejects' immediately after 'Alkaline Trio' instead of down in the Ts.


If i try the sort string $replace($replace($meta(artist,0),the ,),The ,) (same as yours, but i hate field remapping) with a formatting string more to my liking -- $if2($meta(artist,0),$char(13)'(none)')) -- i get similar weird behaviour:

(1) It's not using $meta(artist,0), it's still using %artist%. For example, 'Rika Muranaka' is in the 'A's because her tracks have 'Akira Yamaoka' in the %album artist% field. (If i set the sort string back to * it puts Rika Muranaka in the 'R's where she belongs.)

(2) It still puts all the artists who have single tracks at the bottom of the list instead of just putting them all in alphabetical order. (Again, if i set the sort string back to * it behaves correctly.)

(3) It still puts '(none)' (which is what i replaced '<MISSING>' with) in between the 'full' artists and the 'single' artists. (If i set the sort string to * it goes back to the top.)

It does correctly ignore 'the' when sorting, so i guess that's a plus....


The string above actually isn't the one that i normally use, but i'm sparing you the specific details since i use a weird tagging method that you probably won't be able to reproduce without a lot of extra work. You shouldn't need my specific string to see that the sorting options are broken though. :/

This probably doesn't matter, but just in case: I have Windows XP with SP2.

I too have problems with panel sorting.

I set up a single Genre panel (with default settings) and when I browse selecting All, songs are not sorted by Genre (I have a column in my PL, so it's easy to check  ).

Also, on Win2k the drop downs in the preferences are not exploded: only one row is visible and I have to use the keyboard to make a selection.

Its not possible to show only one genre, but it is possible to show one genre, and an "other" category or something similar.

use a format string such as:

Code: [Select]
$if(strcmp(%genre%,MyGenre),My Genre,Other)


look at /titleformat_help.html in foobar2000 program directory for more information about what that does.

I may add those after I finish updating playlist tree, but that is a long process.  If I do implement it, I would probably develop an entirely different component that adds those items to the global context menu, and possibly some more.  If anyone else wanted to give that a try I could furnish them with some code that did something similar under 0.8.3

Searched the whole thread and found the same question - without an answer. But it's essential, I think: How can I force foo_browser to sort the created playlist by criteria determined by me (for example: browse by album, the playlist has to sort by tracknumber)?
Title: foo_browser

Try "General->Sort incoming items by:" in the foobar preferences

Thanks a lot, that seems to work.
But wouldn't it be nice if you can configure the browser panels itself to sort by criteria (like foo_albumlist e.g.)?

Great component, that is the one I missed for a long time!!! Keep up the good work!

Is this not what the third edit box in Browser config allows? "Sort Criteria"? Or are you talking about something different?

Hi,
I was using playlist_tree with fb2k 0.8.3. Now I switched to 0.9 and foo_browser. My question is - can I somehow create dynamic playlists like I could with playlist_tree? For example 50 most played songs, never played songs, 100 highest rated etc. Thanks.
Title: foo_browser
Post by: FrDelefortrie on 2006-04-08 11:42:48
foo_browser is not foo_playlist_tree.
So you will be able to do that
- when foo_playlist_tree will be updated
- with autoplaylist (an official additionnal component)

Ok, i had this working not too long ago. but now that i switched my foo around again it doesnt do nothing but clear everything when i click on em. For example, i added all my music and it never showed up in the browser i click on ALL inside the browser and it just clears my playlist and i have to keep adding it all back again.

Ive tried resetting everything and starting over but it still gives me the same trouble. ANY idea why this is acting up now when it wasent before? thanks

cwbowron, thanks for great browser component. Are you interested to fix the following bugs (if possible)?:
- playback follows cursor everytime i switch to different bwowsers playlist, no matter if i unchecked it in playback menu
- as someone mentioned before, resume playback at startup function becomes useless, because browsers playlist is always selected on startup
- doubleclick on statusbar to highlight now playing item when on different playlist doesnt work too

When I have foo_browser installed, the changes on files are not tracked by the media library anymore. So if I delete a file within foobar, it will remain in the library; if I rename a file using masstagger, the library will display both the old and the new name. To solve this I have to delete both the *browser* playlist and the foobar database.

Furthermore, rescaning the media library or resetting the browsers don't solve the problem.

Yeah, Ive got about 300gb and the loading delay is the only thing thats keeping me from using foo_browser now. I havent really used itunes much, so Im not sure if it has similar loading times, but I know that anytime I click "All" it ususally takes at least 25 seconds to populate the lists. I think what you need is some kind of caching mechanism to hold the contents of the lists until they are manually repopulated by the user.

If any programmers out there want to take a look at the code to see if they can improve the speed, let me know, I'll gladly share the code.

Suggestions for speed improvements:

1 - Don't use a Title panel.  Just use the browser playlist for browsing individual files.

2 - Sort by "*".  This lets me keep the display list in sorted order and I can shortcut the search.

thanks cwbowron i will try those ideas.
i know it must be hard trying to suit everyones requests and demands

especially when this to me seems more of an issue with the media library system itself rather then your component. when i rescan my media library it takes along time...

Another suggestion to improve speed would be an option to disable the "all" entry on the first panel (parameter on a per panel basis); this would prevent from rebrowsing the entire library.

What is your browser playlist set to?

If its somethign with TAGZ in it, change to something that doesnt involve TAGZ... i.e. "*Browser*"

Or do you wish that the component automatically removed its last playlist when it populates a new one?

ie
browser1(letter)
a
b-->
c
etc..

browser2(artist)
ben folds -->
bob marley
etc..

browser3(album)
album1
album2
album3

the reason i ask this is because i have too much music to scroll through artist by artist and this would make it much quicker.

This is due to how the media library works : it saves everything that's in the playlists as path data to the ilbrary.  If you empty the playlists, you'll be fine.  Or just make sure you don't have the same files in two different playlists when you use masstagger.

As Shade[ST] said, I fear you can't do anything about that (while using that playlist-length plugin that is). Although there is a simple solution, go in the settings>Display>ColumnsUI>PlaylistSwitcher>General tab, then check "use titleformatting" and type this into it: %title% '['%length%']'
The only reason to use that plugin you're using (can't remember the name), is if you want the duration added to the tabbed playlist switcher.

now this component will stay as a permanent one on my foobar config +++ awesome

now my foobar mem usage is 420mb down to 90mg which is much more bearable

without foo_browser its 40mb

i supose i have to work out how much i need the functionality vs the memory
Title: foo_browser
Post by: c0uchm0nster on 2006-04-18 05:58:45
First off: great component, it's pretty close to what ive wanted in the year ive been using fb2k.

Now then, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems the component has a pretty hefty memory leak.

When going from a large browse filter (say, [All] in 4 browse panels), to a smaller filter (selecting a single album in the 3rd panel), memory usage for foobar drops by around 100-400kb. It doesn't seem to correspond to how much is still displayed, nor how much has been filtered out of view - so I don't know what's determining the variance between 100-400kb...

Anyways, the problem occurs when going from a smaller filtered list to a larger one (say back to [All] in every panel). Memory usage increases by ~2.1mb every single time you do this. Again, it doesn't seem to matter how much you had displayed or how much you reveal. I suspect this is why 4nt1 was noticing a memory footprint of 420mb, and possibly even the 90mb after his own modification...

My foobar uses almost exactly 30mb when first opened, and very quickly passes 50mb when using your browse panel (20mb raise in memory footprint takes about 8 or 9 smaller -> larger filter changes).

One last bit of info I've noticed is that this only mainly happens with the Genre and Artist panels - I don't see much change at all when filtering inside the albums panel, even from an album of 1 track to 40 tracks.

This sounds like it could be a very tough leak to find - so, good luck, and if you'd like me to do any testing I'd be happy to.

Oh, the only other 3rd party components I've got are:
foo_playcount
foo_ui_columns (obviously)
foo_uie_albumart
foo_uie_trackinfo
foo_vis_projectM
Title: foo_browser
Post by: Shade[ST] on 2006-04-18 06:10:34
I can confirm the memory leak issue.  Here, it seems memory usage jumps up every time I reload an "all" section. (well, not really. It just seems to jump up more when I do.) Maybe it's a caching issue?  Or a garbage collection one (probably, in fact..)
Title: foo_browser
Post by: 4nt1 on 2006-04-18 06:22:47
yes we all know there are major memory issues but this component is still very early in development and hopefully some nice optimisations can be put in place.

album list does similar stuff to this component and its very fast so what could be going wrong?
Title: foo_browser
Post by: david_dl on 2006-04-18 07:06:54
Hi there, very nice component, I was annoyed when the 'custom sort' option was dropped from albumlist panel, but Browser is a decent replacement. The only issues I have with it are that changing 'Double click action' doesn't seem to work, and there is no option to change the single click action (And it seems to treat a double click as a single click AND a double click).

What I would like to be able to do is use 'Edit/Highlight in current playlist' as the single click action, and to have the Browser's contents always reflect the current playlist, and to update itself following modifications to that playlist
(I realise the plugin is at an early stage and that what I am asking with that last request is not at all easy to implement, but maybe as the plugin matures it could be considered?)

Confirming the memory leak.

Steps to reproduce (1):
1. Open a fresh fb2k instance.
2. In the Genre panel klick  some_genre -> [All] -> some_genre -> [All] -> some_genre -> [All] ... etc.
3. Observe the ever increasing memory usage every time you select [All].

Steps to reproduce (2):
1. Open a fresh fb2k instance.
2. Select repeatedly "Library" -> "Reset Browsers".
3. Observe the ever increasing memory usage every time you klick "Reset Browsers".

    * swtiched from get_info to get_info_locked
    * switched to directly posting the message to refresh from SetTimer. Timer was not working for some reason.
    * Added handling of show_config_popup => lets you choose formatting from columns ui layout by selecting "configure"
    * fixed sunken/grey/none edge style


There may still be a memory leak, but I think I fixed the big one.

Thank you for the prompt bugfix, the leak seems to be gone.

Now I have another problem though. I played with the new grey/sunken border and the display is somehow borked. All panels are now off by few pixels to the right and to the bottom. This means, I have now few surplus pixels at the left and top sides of the panels and few missing pixels at the right and bottom sides. (Using W2K SP4.)

Firstly, great plugin and good work on the latest version. I do believe that foobar2000.exe is using less memory now.

However, I have a problem. When double clicking on certain albums in the album browser, the tracks are added to the playlist but not in numerical order of track number. It always happens with the same albums and each one is always added with it's own particular perculiar track order.

I also noticed that if I deleted the media library (and temporarily removed my playlists) and then rescanned the media library then the current albums would have their tracks added in the correct order but newly added albums could still have distorted track orders. This leads me to think that the order is dependant of the order that the tracks where added to the media library. Could you fix this? Thanks.

EDIT:
Ah, I've just managed to fix this by changing the Double Click Action from "Playlist tree/Add to Current Playlist" to "Edit/Add to Current Playlist". I can't remember if "Playlist tree/Add to Current Playlist" was the default setting but if it was then might I recommend you change it.

(wow I like this forum's nifty quick edit feature  )

I'm wondering if, one day, we'll be able to have a "@playlist_tree_level(-1 to n)" option to put in the formats box of the browser panel(s). This should show in the panel(s) the matching level of the PLT selected node. This will make the panels headers dynamic.
I also wonder if we'll be able to choose on the fly if the level number inside the parenthesys should be absolute or relative to the position of the selection in PLT panel.

Does this plugin refresh at all? Whenever I add an album to my playlist,  I have to be careful not to click anything in the browser, or else I have to readd the songs. Works the same with deleting albums. I was trying to get rid of an album, so I deleted it off of my hdd and my playlist. I restarted foobar, and it was still there. I ended up having to get rid of it through the album list, then reinstalling the plugin.

Am I missing something, or does automatic refresh need to be there?

foo_browser - ugly.png (http://alive.dienub.org/fb2k/foo_browser%20-%20ugly.png) - Please fix this. It's bothering me quite a lot. I hope that you agree.
As an example, I suggest looking at the playlist selector I have to the left of the browser plugin. It's perfect.

Also, please think about implementing the right-click menu options available in the album list. At least the "Send to playlist" / "Add to playlist" / "Send to new playlist" options. The current way of doing things is to assign "doubleclick" to "Utils/Send to playlist...", but the extra window which pops up, heavily distrupts my workflow.
I read somewhere in this thread that you would only do this if you ever made a component which could do this globally - Please dont. foo_browser is about to become one of the absolute must-have components for foobar2000, and I hope you'll treat it accordingly.

You should check out foosion's foo_utils which adds Add to playlists, Insert into playlists, Send to playlists under edit in the context menu.  I dont have the link handy but its pretty easy to find.

You could also install my foo_playlist_tree component which adds "Add to active playlist", "Send to active playlist" and "new playlist" in the context menu under "Playlist Tree".  These options would be available even if you do not use the playlist tree panel itself.

Bug Fixes

    * double border - set border style of listview to none


New Features

    * Option to replace the previous playlist when sending a new one (if you are using TAGZ in the playlist name, this is useful so that many playlists are not created)

Two bugs:

1.  If you switch the edge type, the browser windows do not automatically update (actually, if you have the hide horizontal scroll bar checked, it will show it).  Once you refresh the browser windows, the scroll bar goes away, but the edge style does not change.

In order to change the edge style, you need to make an update to the Columns UI layout (I just changed one of my browser panels to a different orientation and then back and it updated the edges).

Basically what I am trying to say is that when you change the edge style in your preferences, it should update the browser panels right away.

2. There are issues with sorting some albums.  The sort for my playlist is set to:
[%album artist%]
ب[%album%]
ب[%discnumber%]
ب$num(%tracknumber%,3)
ب%_path_raw%

There are a number of albums that sort correctly in other playlists, but are not correct in the browser playlist.  I have all my sort criteria set to * (the default).

If you need specific examples of what is not sorted correctly, please PM me and let me know what you need.

By the way, I just downloaded the new DLL from today, so these are bugs in the current version.

Thanks for the great plugin!

I'm not sure if I'm just too stupid but when I try to add a Browser panel to the vertical splitter there is none. The only panel I can see is the playlist switcher.


Edit: Ah ok might be connected to the fact that I installed the new ColumnUI 0.1.3 beta 1 and that requires the panels to be recompiled with the new SDK.

To update both 'Browser" & "Albumlist Panel". I had to delete all of my playlists, run "Rescan Media Library", close down foobar, then re-start foobar. I've never had to do all of those steps to refresh the database. Whatever the the problem is, it seems to affect the database, as well as the media plugins. So, I'm really not sure if it is "Browser" causing the problem or if it might be the "Columns_UI Beta".

Hi, I asked a few days ago about removing items easier from the browser. I accidently added a folder to my collection, and I'm trying to remove it from the browser, but it won't let me. Last time I did it, I had to remove it from the album list and reinstall the plug in. Is there an easier way to do this?
Title: foo_browser
Post by: Shade[ST] on 2006-04-30 23:51:24
Create a playlist with all your library but that album.  Make sure the album is in no other playlists, and remove all folders from the media library (preferences).  Then, click 'save all' and re-add the folder, don't click scan, and exit foobar.

When you re-run it, the album will be gone from the library, and the rest will still be there.

Is it normal if the possibility to add all my library to the current playlist has been removed?
I used to double-click on [All] in browser window to do so, but it does not seems to work anymore...
The only way to do that right now is to specify a Browser playlist, but it is not an option for me since I don't like to get my library updated as soon as I select an artist/album.

Cwbowron, it would be awesome to re-enable the double click action over [All] !

Hi all again,
I have one another question about sorting items:
I use three panels of foo_browser : genre, artist and album.
So when i simple click on one genre, the *browser* playlist is modified with the songs having the genre i clicked on.
I would like the *brower* playlist to be sorted by artist, date, album, title. 
But it is sorted by artist, album, title. 
Is there a way to change this ?
Must I look in foor_browser options, or in UI_columns options ?
Tks very much.

This may be an impossible request, but is there anything that can be done to improve performance in this plug in?  I have a lot of tracks (almost 18000) and when I click [All] in my first panel (Album Artist) it can take up to a few minutes to load (and my foobar is frozen while it is working).

Besides this issue, I must say I love this plugin!

Thanks.

This plugin suddenly started working properly again, I decided to Recan the media library after adding an album, and after I did that I reset the Browser, and all seems fine now.  =)

Edit: I also just noticed 3 "bugs":

1) If you use the arrow keys to seek forward in a track when the focus is on a browser panel, it causes both the panel and the columns playlist to blink on each key press.

2) Double-clicking on the status bar to focus the now-playing track does not work on the Browser playlist.

3) I have my columns playlist directly beneath 3 browser panels, and when I resize the playlist vertically, the contents of the 1st browser panel expands with the resize, but when I revert to my original playlist size, there is a space before the "All" entry and also after the last entry, as if there is an invisible (unselectable) entry there (reset browser fixes the former)

Cheers!

I too can't get the foo_browser plugin to work (0.9.1). Its installed correctly in the components folder, in foobar2000 I can see its preferences, but it's nowhere to be found in the ColumnsUI layout editor. I can see all my other panels, just not the Browser panel(s).

- foobar2000: 0.9.1
- columns_ui: 0.13 pre-alpha 17v6
- foo browser: 1.1.5

Any idea?


Btw, is there also a foobar2000 0.8.x version of this plugin available and if so, where can I get it? I still have 0.8.3 running parallell with 0.9 because I use some components that aren't ported yet.

How do I get foo_browser to list ARTIST but if there is an "ALBUM ARTIST tag then ALBUM ARTIST"? I would like to list songs that are in Various Artist CDs to only be listed under Various Artists rather than their own name. Otherwise I have a thousand listings for artists that I only have one song from and it is impossible to use foo_browser to find my CDs by artist.

Thanks for any advice.

Try putting this in the Artist format field in the Browser settings:

Hello,
I'm sorry if this has been already discussed, but I couldn't find it. Can I sort artist panel in browser so, that for examples "The Beatles" will be treated as "Beatles" - sorted under B? I want the sorting engine to ignore the article. Ithink it should be possible to do it, but I don't know how.

I use an %artist sort order% tag since there's no way a script can tell the difference between a band name (The Beatles => Beatles, The), a person's name (John Coltrane => Coltrane, John), or in some cases both (The Dave Brubeck Quartet => Brubeck Quartet, The Dave). If you don't want to go through the hassle and you're only worried about 'The xxx'-type names, you can use:
Code: [Select]
$if($strcmp($left(%artist%,4),The ),
$insert(%artist%,,4)', The',%artist%)

Hope that helps.

I tried this formattin string in uie_trackinfo nad it works as expected. Bu if I enter this as a sort criteria in browser's artis panel, it doesen't work. I have no idea why.

Nad I have one more request - in my native language (Czech) there are some special characters lik š,č,ř,ž etc. (I hope it will be displayed correctly). In our alphabet Č is between C and D, Š is between S and T and so on. Would it be possible to add a function for custom characters order? Windows natively sort czech letters correctly.

I think it was related to the libray callback i added that refreshed the browser on add, deletes or modifys from the library.  I put out an updated 1.1.6b that only refreshes on adds or deletes from the library.

Hide horizontal scrollbars doesn't seem to do anything...I normally don't have any horizontal scrollbars, so checking this option doesn't have any effect.  However, when I restore foobar2000, horizontal scrollbars DO appear, but the option to hide them still does nothing... (it only makes them "shorter" =)...if it helps, here's my columns ui layout (maybe the locking function is causing the problem):

Horiz. Split-

  -Buttons (locked)
  -Playlist switcher
  -Album Art (locked)
Vert Split
  -Horiz Split (locked)
    -Browser Panel

Other than that it's working fine over here.  Now we just need the same coloring options that columns UI has =)

OK, i decided i'd, you know, bite the bullet or whatever and upgrade to the new Columns UI today, so i did that, and i got all the new panels and junk, but i'm having some issues with yours.... (edit: Had a problem with PLT but i figured it out, so never mind there.)

Well, for Browser, everything pretty much works OK as far as i can tell, but you evidently did something to the edge styles, and now they're all messed up. :/

First of all, you changed the edge styles themselves i guess. Like, for example, 'Sunken' in the new version isn't the same as 'Sunken' in the old one. I don't really know how to complain about this, because every. single. panel. ever made for foobar uses completely different edge styles, so i don't know which one is the 'real' one. In any case i rather liked 'Sunken' in the old one, which caused the panels to display the way they should be displayed according to my visual style -- none of the edge styles in the new version do that. They don't use the visual style, they just kinda make up their own way of doing things. I don't know.

Anyway i settled on 'Grey' since it's the one that looks best, but now i have another problem. The scroll bars are messed up; they get chopped off on the sides and bottom.

(http://img281.imageshack.us/img281/745/browserscrollbars9py.jpg)

This happens with all edge styles, not just the grey one. And no amount of resizing or refreshing or whatever will fix it. I have horizontal scroll bars disabled in that screen shot, but if i enable them, those get cut off across the bottom too.

This is with 0.9.1, Columns 0.1.3 beta 1v5, and Browser 1.1.6b.

please advise~

You don't have to assume that everybody here speaks english as a mother tongue. Making myself understandable in a foreign language is difficult as it is, even without having to consider all its subtleties and intricacies.

I do not meant to be impolite. My appologies, if you got offended by my clumsy choice of words. Just blame it on my "being foreign" and my apparent lack of skill with languages.

You don't have to assume that everybody here speaks english as a mother tongue. Making myself understandable in a foreign language is difficult as it is, even without having to consider all its subtleties and intricacies.

I do not meant to be impolite. My appologies, if you got offended by my clumsy choice of words. Just blame it on my "being foreign" and my apparent lack of skill with languages.


We'll just chalk it up to your English being good enough to make me think you might be a native speaker...

The reason I responded like I did that many times people do think they are entitled to new features and such and it can be frustrating.

But, at any rate... The next version will have options for changing the color of the selection's text.

It took me a while to get foo_browser running as I wanted, but now I wonder how I did without foo_browser. Many thanks, cwbowron, for this great component. It makes dynamic generated playlists so simple even my parents can use it and like it

I understand the component is still in development so there are probably features you intend to implement later on. I've done some thinking too (to my own needs of course) and it would be great if you could add following features to foo_browser:

* Empty output shouldn't create list value: A formatting like $if(%field%,,NA) will lead to 3 values in the browser list: [All], NA and an empty line. I think it would be nice if the empty line wouldn't be shown in the browser. If you want them to show you could still put a space in the formatting string so the empty line shows (it's not empty due to the space, but it looks empty).

* Extended support for multiple values per track: Right now the browser can either use a TAGZ style (%field%), or a multiple values style (field). However, you cannot perform any foobar formatting scripting on the multiple values style. For example (a very stupid one); $if(%field%,Y,N) works, but $if(field,Y,N) doesn't). In my humble opinion it would be better to execute the formats for each value found. Thus, if you have $if(%field%,Y,N) as formatting and there are 3 %field% tags in the file, the formatting should be performed 3 times - once for each found %field%. In this example it would be a bit stupid, but I have some pretty good use for it.

* Unlinked browsers: In the current version browsers appear to be linked to each other. If you select an artist in the first browser list the following browsers are updated and show only information about the selected artist. Although that is nice it sometimes becomes frustrating because changing a field can reset a lot of other browsers. I have browsers like Genre, Mood, Tempo,... But when I simply add a genre to the selection, all other browsers are reset to [All] and I have to set them again. It would be nice to have to option to exclude certain browsers from this 'link'. So when Genre, Mood and Tempo are unlinked and you change the genre, the Mood and Tempo browser keep their content and selections.

* AND functionality for multiple selections: Right now when you select multiple items in the browser it performs a logical OR. For example, select 'Rock' and 'Punk' in the Genre list and the browser will load all files with either Punk or Rock as genre. But sometimes it can be useful to do a logical AND instead of OR. Think about files with multiple value tags. For example, I use a tag %instruments% in which I put the key instruments of a track. There can be multiple instruments per file. Sometimes I'd like to select all files with a Spanish guitar and a trumpet. Right now this selection returns all tracks with either a trumpet, or a guitar beacus the logical OR. With a logical AND only the files with both a guitar and trumpet would be returned.
How this should be implemented in the user interface, I don't know. Maybe a button below the list that switches between AND & OR? And of course an option in the preferences for each list to show the button (because not everyone will want that) and set a default behavior (AND or OR).


Those are (I believe) features that would enhance foo_browser's functionality and usability in a great way. It would be really great if we could see those features in a future release.


There's one more feature I'd like to propose, but it shouldn't get too much priority. I think it may make things needlessly complex although it could be used for some cool stuff:

* Ability to create multiple values per track: What's the idea? Have the output of the formatting string scanned for a specific delimiter symbol and split the output by that symbol to multile values in the browser list. A very simple example would be an %artist% field containing 'The Beatles'. In a sorted list you'd find this artist under T, with a little formatting you can have it appear under B. But what if we could avoid all confusion and have it shown under T... and B! For example:
$if(
$stricmp($left(%artist%,4),The ),%artist%|$right(%artist%,$sub($len(%artist%),4)),
%artist%
)
returns "The Beatles|Beatles" when a name that starts with "The " is encountered. If foo_browser would just scan this output for the occurance of |-symbols, then split by it, you could have multiple values per track (|-symbol just taken as example).


I hope I made my ideas clear and I hope cwbowron sees the same advantages in them as I do. And who knows, maybe we'll see these ideas in foo_browser one day. I certainly do hope so

Keep up the good work!

guess because of the left padding the selection-bar is not rendered to full left side. can this be done without touching the padding? that would be great!

and the 1px rendering at right side scroll-thing... i guess it´s not my theme causing this. can something be done about this either? (edgs-style is gray in the screeny)


and another thing: very cool to have the option to set the color for selection (focus/non focus). would it be possible to change text-color for focus/non-focus selection either?

Hi all and tks cwbowron for this 1.1.6b which works really well.
I have a little question about what is happening when youy have got for example multiple grenres (Electro\Hip-Hop) or artists(Stan Getz\Bill Evans) for a song.
When I tag those files with the masstager, i just see one genre : Electro, Hip-Hop.
I would like to know if it is possible to have to song in the both genres (Electro and  Hip-Hop).

Im having some trouble with the browsers.

I just installed the latest version, but i can't put the browsers in Columns UI layout, they dont show up under panels, so there is no way for me to put them on. Ive been going at it for awhile and I have no clue how to fix it. Anyone else have this problem or have an idea on how to fix it?

To explain more: I go to Columns UI-> Layout then right click on splitter go to insert panels and then go to panels and the browser panels arent there. I didnt see the question answered on any other page, so I figured id ask.

[quote author=lav-chan link=msg=391345 date=1147316348]No, i'm pretty sure Browser stops doing that fancy separating thingie if it detects that you've used any TAGZ in the format string.[/quote]
That's why I'd love to see foo_browser use a different approach on TAGZ vs multiple values like I described in my previous post (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=42849&st=320#).

Right now you can either use TAGZ and read only 1 value per field from each file. Or you use the notation without % and foo_browser will read all values for that field but without any further processing possible.

In my humble opinion it would be better and certainly more logical if foo_browser would read all values for a specified field and perform the formatting on each value. This would of course raise a problem with formatting constructions where multiple fields are used (for example, %genre% and %artist%). If these fields have quite a few multiple values, foo_browser would have to process all possible combinations between those fields which obviously would cause a performance hit and probably give results you don't want.
A better way would be to specify just one field for each browser on which foo_browser will check for multiple values. During processing foo_browser would read each value for that %field%, and then process the formatting string for each value while substituting %field% by the value and read other %tags% as normal.

I'm not sure I made my idea clear enough, but I really believe this (and some other things I previously mentioned) would improve foo_browser's usability.

Of course, all I can do is request such features, propose ideas and hope the developer finds them worthy enough to think about

I just installed the latest version, but i can't put the browsers in Columns UI layout, they dont show up under panels, so there is no way for me to put them on.

I had the same problem, and from the help I got and other people's same experiences it turns out this is almost always caused by an incorrect verion of foo_ui_columns. Just make sure you get the latest versions from both foo_ui_columns and foo_browser and all should be fine.

I just kindly ask that an option be made to hide the vertical scroll bars.  Then it would be 100% perfect, instead of 99.9% like it is now!

Code: [Select]
    * multiple tags using %<tag>% like playlist tree

The option to skip certain output is great. I really appreciate it!

However, I can't seem to figure out how the %<tag>% works - Or I don't understand its meaning (more likely ). For example; I have 4 files with following tags:

Code: [Select]
File1
- <none>

File2
- TEST1=test1

File3
- TEST2=test2

File4
- TEST1=test1
- TEST2=test2

As browser formatting string I have %<test1,test2>%. This leads to following situation in the browser:

Code: [Select]
[All] --> shows all 4 files [OK]
<MISSING> --> shows File1 [OK]
--> an empty entry. shows File3 [??]
test1 --> shows File2 & File4 [OK]

Is that correct? Wouldn't one expect:

Code: [Select]
[All] --> shows all 4 files
<MISSING> --> shows File1
test1 --> shows File2 & File4
test2 --> shows File3 & File4

Or am I wrong?

Great plugin. One question though:

How can I get the sorting to ignore case?

Like I have music from "At The Drive-In" and "At the Drive-In", but they show up as different artists because of the different way "the" is cased.

I know that I can do that by making everything uppercase, but I didn't want that either.

And what about the following as formatting string?

Code: [Select]
$caps2(%artist%)

That should capitalize every first letter of each word, without touching other caps. It's not perfect either, but I think it should help you in most cases.

I must say I haven't tried it for myself, but I don't think that is possible at this point. I don't think there's support in foo_columns_ui for that (yet).

Now, in columns UI you can create and choose different layout presets. With the browser panels is quite easy to think to use this columns UI feature: different preset for different combinations of the panels. But it doesn't work because the dependancies are fixed in the list in the preferences page and are layout unaware. It would be the best integration with columns being able to set the dependances in columns UI layout page too, maybe with just a numbered order and it would be nice being able to assign the same order number to different panels with different tags at the same time.

You have to enable it in the Columns UI layout section.  Right-clicking around in there will allow you to add the pnels.

For that to work you need the format as just genre, with no % signs. I may be wrong since I've only just reinstalled it and before that I haven't been able to use Windows for months.

I'm trying to get this sorting tag to work in foo_browser:


To ignore the leading "The" ("The Beatles" is turned into "Beatles") use:

Code: [Select]
$if($strcmp($left(%artist%,4),The ),$right(%artist%,$sub($len(%artist%),4)),%artist%)


To put a leading "The" behind the artist tag ("The Beatles" is turned into "Beatles, The") use:

Code: [Select]
$if($strcmp($left(%artist%,4),The ),$right(%artist%,$sub($len(%artist%),4))', 'The,%artist%)



Is there any way you can make it so it says "The (artist)" but still sort it alphabetically by "(artist)" in the panel?

I am testing a tagging approach to my library that relies on multiple STYLE tags.
For instance:

Genre: Rock
Style: Acid Rock\Heavy Metal\British Metal (meaning that in this case I have 3 STYLE tags)

Now I want to have 2 browsers being one for the genre tag (that is always unique for every item of the library) and another for the STYLE tag (that may not be unique).

I tried the following approaches for the STYLE panel:

style (approach 1)
%style% (approach 2)

Approach 1 shows me in the panel only the first STYLE tag and ignores the others (in my example only Acid Rock would appear).
Approach 2 shows me all tags, but comma separated in the same line and that is not exactly what I had in mind... What I wanted is it to show me all STYLE tags, one after another, and when I click in for instance Acid Rock it would display in the playlist all files tagged as Acid Rock.

Does anyone know if this is possible with the current version or if there is any interest in adding this feature to the plugin?

I think instead of having 2 genres...you should put 1 genre and maybe add a %style% tag...

Hi,

I think I noticed another problem with browser 1.1.7 -- mp3 files, which get double-clicked from within windows explorer, do not get played by foobar anymore. It's somehow difficult to explain, so I'll try it this way:

Steps to reproduce:
1) goto Preferences -> Browser and make sure "Automatically Activate" is checked.
2) close foobar
3) locate any mp3 file and double-click it.

Expected behaviour:
- foobar should launch (provided it's the default player for mp3 files) and the double-clicked file should get played.

Current behaviour:
- foobar launches, but the double-clicked file is not played. The very first file from the *Browser* playlist is played instead.

You probably have foo_Browser set to automatically activate the playlist when browsing.  You can try turning that off and seeing if the problem still exists...

Hi cwbowron,

you mean step 1) from the list I posted? Yes, I always have "Automatically Activate" checked. If I unckeck it, then it works as expected, i.e. the double-clicked file is played.

But I assumed the double-clicked file should always be played, regardles of the state of "Automatically Activate", no? Otherwise, the notion of "default player" is somehow pointless. Or am I wrong?

HI all, and tks cwbowron for this new version where everything works fine.
Multiple tags are OK, @skip option works pretty well.

Thanks again.

PS : I'm just thinking of something that could improve foo_browser. When I browse my playlist with foo_browser, it browse in the playlist I've specified (*Browser* by default). When I play an album, I like to browse the playlist, but if the album played was found with foo_browser (so in the *Browser* playlist), when I browse during playing, at the end of the song, the next song played will be the one where the browser stopped at the end of the previous song (not sure I'm clear !). It would be great to be able to send the album that I want to listen to in ANOTHER playlist than *Browser*. So that I can continue to browse my collection as i listen to an album. In fact, two playlist would be choosen in the options : the one for browse and the one to send selection by double clic for example.

Maybe we could have a "Browser - selection" and a "Browser - playing" automatically created playlists. When I'm browsing the result will be in the "selection" one. If there is a track playing from the  "selection" playlist, that playlist will become the "playing" one and from then on the browser should create another "selection" playlist without disturbing the "playing" one. Not sure how to deal if I stop playing tracks though...

Just an idea.

Hi Chris,

I'm having major problems with foo_browser 1.1.8. I'm not sure what's going on, but I cannot get foobar2000 to play. It starts up, but seems to hang. Even my font's change size in the playlist and foo_track_info. I can't even get into preferences to check the settings. When I revert back to 1.1.7 all is right with the world again. To sum up, the best I can say is foo_browser 1.1.8 is making foobar2000 hang, and hang, and hang some more.

Hmmm? I think to avoid copying content from one playlist to another and to handle this problem just by renaming of playlist a solution could be to delete that playing playlist on stop.

I guess you come from Winamp and miss the playlist editor where tracks are sended to from media library! What you need would be something like "user defined playlist" known from playlist tree 1.7.xx.  Perhaps Chris will see a usage for that and could implement it into Browser or Playlist Tree or in a seperate plugin.

Yes, you are right, I come from Winamp about 4 years ago ! And I always found great this way to manage with the media library . I went to foobar because you can make it just like you need it (for tags especially).
And you are right too, the solution is 98 % here when I see what foo_browser can do . And the possibility to browse your playlist during playing is really worth it !

Hi Chris,

I believe my hangs were with both with foobar2000 0.9.2Beta3 & 4. My configuration has the latest Columns_UI, Albumart 176a, Trackinfo 0.8, albumlist panel 0.2.1 beta4, ui_explorer 1.04.6a, playlist dropdown 0.5.7, along with standard toolbar stuff.

Browser 1.1.7 is working perfectly with all of these plugins. Yesterday, I tried Browser 1.1.8 here at work, and I had to restart the computer because my all my programs that have dropdown menus were messed up (either words but no color or color and no wording.) It seemed as if everything had to be redrawn. Very strange behavior.

I hope this info helps you out.


Hi Again Chris,

Ok, I can confirm that Browser 1.1.8 works perfectly with foo_uie_trackinfo 0.8 removed. So, who needs to fix what?

I'm gonna call it a track info problem.  I have foo_browser running with track info panel v. 0.7 and that seems to running fine.

This is my track info panel setup... very sparse:

Hello,

From the test I've done it doesn't seems related to the presence of Trac info but from the use of more than one panel of foo_browser at the same time.

Foobar2000 v0.9.1
Columns UI 0.1.3 beta 1v5
AlbumArt panel 0.176a (also freese without it)
Track info panel 0.8 (also freese without it)

Monkey's Audio decoder 2.0

Hi,

here is my bug report:

Using foobar 0.9.1 on Win2kSP4 with these components:
http://www.iaido-frankfurt.de/ifkxdrg/foobar-components.gif (http://www.iaido-frankfurt.de/ifkxdrg/foobar-components.gif)
and these browser settings:
http://www.iaido-frankfurt.de/ifkxdrg/foo_...er-settings.gif (http://www.iaido-frankfurt.de/ifkxdrg/foo_browser-settings.gif)

The problems began immediately after updating to foo_browser 1.1.8, so I'm afraid it may be a foo_browser issue. The problems appear randomly and there are no certain steps to reproduce them, but they are invariably triggered by a click on a browser panel.

The player does not crash or hang here, but the appearance is severely distorted. A Screenshot:
http://www.iaido-frankfurt.de/ifkxdrg/foobar-borked.gif (http://www.iaido-frankfurt.de/ifkxdrg/foobar-borked.gif)

The music plays further, the buttons "play", "pause", "stop", etc. are working. The Ablum List panel is working, the spectrum analyser is working, but a second, frozen copy of the analyser appears in the upper left corner (cf. screenshot).

The browser pannels themselves appear to be working - when you click on them they change their contents -, but they are painted mostly white-on-white.

The Track Info panel and the Playlists appear to be frozen - they display either trash or the background of some other window, but this is appearance only. When you double-click on the supposedly frozen playlist, the track starts playing, which is supposed to be there.

All in all, it looks like some kind of window re-paint problem in my case.

Memory leak

Steps to reproduce (1):
1. Open a fresh fb2k instance.
2. In the Genre panel klick  some_genre -> [All] -> some_genre -> [All] -> some_genre -> [All] ... etc.
3. Observe the ever increasing memory usage every time you select [All].

Steps to reproduce (2):
1. Open a fresh fb2k instance.
2. Select repeatedly "Library" -> "Reset Browsers".
3. Observe the ever increasing memory usage every time you klick "Reset Browsers".

It seems to me, that the memory leak is here again. The above steps are valid (again).

I am very pleased with the latest version, except for one bug, which is that the sort order is ignored.
My sort string for ARTIST is
Code: [Select]
$if($stricmp($left(%artist%,4),The ),$right(%artist%,$sub($len(%artist%),4)),%artist%)
but it sorts it as if it was *

Edit: Small feature request, it would be very very nice to be able to assign an action to single click as well as double click.
PS. I have the 'Brower Playlist' set to 'Everything', which is a read-only autoplaylist, which stops Browser from modifying it, So for me single click does nothing except create a slight pause. Double click is set to Edit/Highlight in Playlist.

The crashing happens here when I add three new browser panels to my layout at once, and then it crashes when I do the Shift+Right Click.

I did a test to see if I added and configured a browser panel one by one, and that worked without crashing.

Here's a summary fo the layout that I was using:

Code: [Select]
Horizontal Splitter
|------>Vertical Spliter
           |------>Playlist Siwtcher
|------>Vertical Splitter
           |------>Horizontal Splitter
                      |------>Browser Panel

Hi Chris,

You are absolutely correct, it is the "Custom Selection Colors". Unchecked, everything is working perfectly. I use 6 panels and all is working smoothly. Even closing & restarting foobar many times, everything runs as it should. No excess CPU usage nor re-drawing issues. So, it looks like the main culprit has been isolated.

I tried playing around a bit with the $tab() function to try and make things right alligned as this function normally does this sort of thing however it did not work. I assume, therefore, that there are considerable TAGZ limitations with this panel.  Can anyone suggest an alternative approach?

Again, I really love using these panels to dynamically filter my active playlist.. keep up the good work!

The new version works fine. The only issue I have with it is that it resets the playlist when foobar loads (with the old version, foobar would remember the track I had last played and the scroll position. With this version, foobar remembers the scroll position of the playlist but after browser loads it scrolls to the top)

Edit: Here's a screen shot of another problem I have, browser ignoring the sort string:

@david_dl

I saw the setting for the doubleclick and i must say: Now i understand your request for a single click action!

A very interesting idea i am going to test!

Have you tried 1.1.9?  It seems to sort correclty for me, using your original string you posted.

Tried 1.1.9 and nothing crashed. (with dragging or adding 3panel at once)

It seems more stable.

I must say that a single click action for the browser makes sense: you can improve david_dl's idea to make the browser a powerful filter for the library playlist of playlist tree. Also some people could be interested who don't need the browser playlist but use the browser more for building up the active playlist.

So let me bump his request!

Hi, I am using 1.1.9. After half an hour of experimentation, I discovered that the sorting doesn't work when the view is called 'Artist'. However if I call it anything else it works fine. This is very strange and unpredictable behaviour, however I'm happy now, it's working how I like it.

Some weeks ago i asked in your forum for the oppurtinity to define the dependencies of the panels by their order in foobar instead of order in the preferences. As you explained that is not possible because the panels don't know the order. Look here: http://bowron.us/smf/index.php?topic=229.0 (http://bowron.us/smf/index.php?topic=229.0)

Wouldn't it then be possible to define the order of the panels already in ColumnsUi by designing the layout. I mean something like that:

---Horizontal splitter
          Browser panel 1
          Browser panel 2
          Browser panel 3


Sure, that would mean to have an limited number of panels but on the other side if you balance what could be more useful i would say that i can't imagine that somebody needs more than 7 or 8 panels.

Hello,
I'm using fb2k 0.9.1, columnsUI 0.1.3 beta 1v5 and browser 1.1.9.
When adding the browserpanel to my layout, I get the following message in the console:
Code: [Select]
exception while reading config:: Unsupported format or corrupted file
As soon as I click into the panel, foobar crashes with this message:
Code: [Select]

Release 1.1.10
* updated to latest SDK and related fixes
* faster row population using precompiled title formatting
    o works only on non %<tag>% formats
    o .26s vs .09s in my album panel


Not a lot of changes, but the speed increase might be useful to many people. 

Repeat, the speed increase does not effect formats that use the %<tag>% mult tags

If your browser panel formatting includes the use of %<artist>% or some other use of %<tag>%, you wont see much a speed improvement.  But if the format is %artist% it should see a pretty big speed improvement.

Thank you so much for the latest version, it really seems to have sped up the list population. Mind you, I have a library of about 30,000 songs, so it still takes about 10 seconds when I click on "[All]" but its still better than before (and no, I don't have a "tracks" list. Just Date, Artist, and Album). After using musikcube which uses a similar browser system, I still think you could get it faster. Im not sure what type of database musikcube uses, but with the same huge library the list populating is almost instantaneous. Maybe it has some type of list cache so that it doesn't have to reload from the database each time [All] is selected.

Found a slight bug : there are in fact, two columns per browser panel.  It seems you used a table layout, and if you click on the second column in the browser panel (right beside the scrollbar, maybe 1-2 px near it), it deselects everything in the playlist.

Hello thanks for this great plugin.

I have a feature request concerning the "Resume playback after restart" breaking.
This should be fixed by saving in the config the actual state of playlists and foo_browser in order to get the real last song played at startup.

This is IMHO a "must-fix"

Hi cwbowron,

I just get into your browser component, and it's really great! I got the last version 1.1.10 and I just have one question: it's there a way to add more panels? I mean, I use the following layout:
[genre] / [artist] / [album] / [tracks]

I've deleted the title panel and I use instead a styles panel that list: $if2(%<styles>%,'(...)')
This way I can just switch the first panel from genre to syles and browse the content in the other 3 panels. The problem is that I would like to create some other 'parent' panels (i.e. situation, tempo, mood, etc...) but I can't get the damn thing to make another panel in the preferences. I guess it's something you already know. Any help will be great appretiated

Great work dude.

The only downside is that sometimes when I select another 'parent' panel i.e. situation, then all the other panels reset the panel selection. I mean in my set genre/artist/album/track, when I change genre by another panel i.e. situation, then I have to re-select again artist as artist, album as album and title as title panel, otherwise I can't browse correctly.

foobar2000 0.9.2

I'm using foo_browser, which is great to correct tags, but did not figure out how to activate panels - I always have a list of all tracks, no panels.

File | Preferences | Media Library informs that I have the following Installed Media Library viewers:

Album List
Browser
Database search
Playlist Tree Panel

When I click either Browser or Playlist Tree Panel, the Activate button on the right remains dimmed.
Perhaps the dimmed button is a symptom of what's wrong - how to make it work?

I think the problem is that you are selecting in a panel whose format string is higher than genre in the preferences list.
For now, unfortunately, it seems that the dependancies among the panels are statically determined by the position of the panel format string in the preferences page.
So, to set a cascade of panels in the order you want to select, you should do it first in the preferences list.
Cbowron has stated that it will have a look at this but he also said that thinking to set the dependancies automatically according to the panel position in the columns UI layout is out of question.

I asked for a dynamic linking definition among panels so, now that we can easily switch layouts we could set different dependancies for each layout.
For me, it would be interesting and useful being able to use boolean operator too. Each panel could then become one side of a query with the freedom to choose the values instead of having to type them (see the amazing quicksearch or database search toolbar demo).

Hey cwbowron,

I really like the new split off foo_browser.  I have one panel for the %date% field.  If I click on one of the years in the panel, it will show only the genres, artists, albums or tracks from that year in the corresponding panels--as it is supposed to do.  However, if I click on an entry in one of the other panels first, it does not remove entries in the "Year" panel at all. 

For instance, if I select the "Classic Rock" genre, it does not remove years like 2004.  None of the tracks in my collection with 2004 for the %date% have a Classic Rock %genre% tag.

Yes, that's working as designed... The panels are setup so that the filtering only happens in one direction...

I'm working on a different method of panel layouts that will allow a more flexible hierarchy of panels...
Title: foo_browser
Post by: kockroach on 2006-06-13 04:12:33
What exactly do you mean by one direction?  Does that have to do with the order of the panels?  Because regardless of where my "Year" panel is located, it always shows all of the years available, regardless of what I click on in any of the other panels.  It doesn't seem to behave in the same manner as the rest of the panels.

The hierarchy is determined by the position of the panel's format string in the preferences page list, not the layout position (for now, at least.

The order is determined by the list in the preferences.  If your year panel is at the top, none of the other panels will affect it.

Strange, because originally, my "Year" panel was the last one on the list, and I moved it up to #2 in the preferences order.  It behaved the exact same way as when it was last.  But now, I moved it back to last in the preferences, and it now will remove the proper %date% entries when I click on a Genre, Album, etc. in the other columns.  So all appears to be well.  Thanks!

I can't wait to see panels work with more flexibility, as cwbowron mentioned.

Code: [Select]
Release 1.2.0
New Features

    * more flexible panel configuration
          o There is a 255 character limit on format, headers and sorting strings
          o How Precedence Works:
                + panels with a lower precedence value will send selections to panels with higher precendence values
                + panels with the same precedence will affect each other only if the number is odd.
                      # panels with a precedence of 0 will not be affected by any panels
                      # panels with a precedence of 9 will be affected by all panels (including other 9's).
                + I know this seems complicated, but I think it covers any possibility

After a quick test it seems that the panels with the same precedence keep affecting each other even if the level number is even.

Now, the next step would be letting us assign the precedence level into the columns UI layout page!
Different layout == different panels behaviour.

... of course, not...

It works.

Just have a look at the two panels behaviour though: after you select one line in one panel the other correctly get filtered but if you now select a line in the filtered one and then select the 'all' line, the previous panel doesn't repopulate. The only way is to refresh the browser content or make a different selection in the panel parent of both.

Hey cwbowron,

The changes look great, thanks!  One thing I did notice, is that the first line in the panels config cannot be selected for editing.  If you have to make a change to it, you have to remove it, and then add it back in.

Edit:  Quick question.  Is it possible to use TAGZ in the Header?  I was thinking it might be cool to have the %_itemcount% displayed after the header...like DB stats.  Just a thought.

Looks good here.  Thanks for considering the request.  I can't really think of any other TAGZ function to pisplay in the Header (except if people want to display something like %_size_abbr%).  Perhaps just an option to display the itemcount in parentheses after the panel Header.

Since I added a Play in Library Playlist to my playlist tree component, I set my double click action to that, then use the browser playlist for browsing.  Then if I want to play something from the browser, I double click it and it plays in the playlist tree library playlist which is configurable somewhat similar to the browser playlist, but it cannot use the browser specific tagz.

When viewed i starts with the smallest date (in this case 1978) then heads on down to 2006.

Can i reverse this so that it starts with 2006 and works its way down?

Apologies if this has already been discussed but the thread is very long, i did not read all of it.

I am using the latest version of this component and the latest version of foobar.

I have three panels: the first is the genre, the second is artist, the third is album.
If i click on a genre, the artist and album panels accordingly change so that they display only artists and albums according to the genre i clicked. Now say I click on an artist in the artist panel, then the genre panel changes to match the artist i clicked. Now, if i click on the genre on the left that the artist belongs to, the other artists disappear, and I am stuck in all three panels to only display that one artist, the genre it belongs to and its albums, even if i click on "All" for any of the three panels...

I am unaware as to a method to revert the panels to their default view (i.e. with all genres, all artists and all albums listed). Or, perhaps the component should be modified so that whichever particular that you click on does not affect the contents of the preceding panel, and rather only the following panel.

I've had the same problem.

In the last release of foo_browser, the dependancies among the panels are set by a level number. The top level panel has the number 0 (zero): this means that the selections made in the other panels won't affect this one. You should set to zero what you want to use as the master panel.
All the panels with a higher level number will be affected by the selections you made in the master one. If you set a panel to a level number 1, the selections you will make into this will affect only the panels with number 2 or greater.
So, if you want that album depends by artist and artist depends by genre try this:

genre = 0
artist = 1
album = 2

One nice thing is that you can have two or more panels with the same number.
Try this setup:

situation = 0
genre = 1
tempo = 2
rating = 2

you can choose "conversation" as situation and this will filter all the panels;
then choose "jazz" as genre and this will filter tempo and rating panels;
and then you're free to choose which tempo OR which rating: only medium tempo, whichever rating or only 5 rated whichever tempo.
Nice, isn't it?

In my case, I want all panels to filter each other, mutually and completely.  I set all my levels to 9, but when I subsequently select two panels, clicking on 'all' leaves the current selection made, as if I had done the 'browse' action on a particular album, in this case.  I can make this more detailed if you find it obscure or confused.

You can refresh the browsers to the entire media library contents using the the "Refresh Browser Contents" option under the library main menu.

I, too, would like the ability to have browser panels to be mutually exclusive. I use three panels Genre, Artist, and Album (in that order). I would like to be able to (for example) select an artist and not only have the album list update to only that artists' albums (which it now does nicely) but also to have the Genre list update to only that artists' genres.  I assumed this might be possible by setting all three browsers to the same "Precedence" value (I tried both 1 and 9) but it does not appear to have an effect. I even restarted foobar between settings changes to make sure they took.

I currently see the album list filtered by the artist list which is filtered by the genre list, which is the expected behavior and much to my liking.  However the ability to make all lists filter each other mutually, with "[ALL]" acting as a method to disable an individual filter would be icing on the cake.

I took your suggestion from the previous post and tried using "refresh browser contents" between selections in the hope this would force the lists to refresh but all they did is set all the browsers back to [ALL] and display everything in every panel.

EDIT: I am using foo_browser.dll v1.2.0b (June 14 2006 - 08:28:57) and Foobar v0.9.2 which both appear to be the latest versions.

Strange that you cannot get it to work like you want, because for me it seems to work like you are wanting it to.  I am still playing around with my layout, and have more than three Browser panels.  One of them (Codec) is set to "0", while all others are set to "1".  When I click on any Genre, the listings in the other panels are all trimmed to show only what belongs to that Genre.  If I then click on a specific Year that is still listed, then only the Artist(s) and the corresponding album(s) from that year are left in their appropriate panels.

Edit:  Also wanted to confirm I am using the same version of Browser as you.

Unless there is something else you are trying to do, it seems like it is working the way that you are asking.

I think he would like to see the genre panel be filtered too when he selects a year or an artist or an album.

I tried this setup:  style (level 3)  +  rating (level 3)  +  tempo (level 3)

This is what happens:

- refresh browser contents
- select the style "hard bop"  =  in the panel's selection playlist I can see all my hard bop tracks
- select the rating "5"  =  in the playlist I can see only hard bop track rated 5. As I have multi values in the style field (hard bop, post bop, etc), after selecting "5" in the rating panel I can see the style panel updating and showing all and only the styles currently in the tracks in the playlist. So, if among the 5 rated tracks I have hard bop and post bop styles, I can see them only into the style panel.
- select the tempo "medium"  =  the playlist now contains only hard bop tracks rated five and with a medium tempo.
Now, if I select "ALL" into the tempo panel the playlist is updated showing all the tempos but if I do it in the other two panels nothing happens because the ALL is already selected. The only way to start a new selection is to refresh the panel's contents but that will make you start from scratch. Maybe it would be better having the out of filter values shown in a different color instead of hiding them so we could start a new selection clicking on an out of filter value. Better have it as an option: hide/downlight (isn't it the opposite of highlight?)

As we can see, the same leveled panels work in an AND fashion. It could be useful being able to choose to make them work as an OR, sometimes.
It would also be cool being able to select the level number from the shift+right click menu too without having to go the preferences page.

Is it possible to add the counts for [All] ?
For example:

All (10 Genres) | Artist (230 Artists) | Album (400 Albums)

Thanks for this plugin.

Would this be possible?

I think what he's referring to is the multiple columns in the browser panel, that have the size and file counts of the items.  Its not currently possible, but it is something that *could* be done.
Title: foo_browser
Post by: cosmosis on 2006-06-21 16:19:27
Not only multiple colums, but sortable. I would find that most ussable for sorting albums by date or alphabetical order. I know that would be a major addition, but I'm just throwing it out there.

Thanx for the great plugin.
Title: foo_browser
Post by: q-stankovic on 2006-06-21 16:34:34
I would be excited not only about multiple and sortable columns in one panel but also about using any variable in configuration of one column. Let's say for example: genre|style or codec|bitrate|size. In that context i would be happy about all the variables and functions that are available in PT: %_size%, %_itemcount%, $avg, $sum and so on.

There are many players using the iTunes browser style but there is just Winamp that offer a very limited oppurtunity to sort inside apanel by columns. The main advantage of the browser compared to a treebased view is the better overview and opportunity to select more than one entry. If sortable columns would be added with the chance to take full advantage of TAGZ there would be created a library browser that couldn' be beated by nothing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that would find this a great addition. I'm currently use album list because is blazing FAST, and browser, even though offers a better view of the library doesn't offer much more funtionality over albumlist. The ability to add columns to browser would, in my opinion, take full advantage of multiple panels.

Like I said on another forum, this would make foobar the undisputable champion of music players.

It appears I may have been unclear with my previous request based on the replies.

For an oversimplified example let's say we have three browser panels A,B, and C added to the ColumnsUI layout in that order. All three browsers are set to the same Precedence value.

What I see with the current version:
All entries in the media library meeting Column A's criteria appear in Column A, regardless of what is selected in Column B or C.  All entries in the media library meeting Column B's criteria appear in column B, but only if such items also agree with what is selected in Column A, column C has no effect on column B.  All entries in the media library meeting Column C's criteria appear in Column C, but only if such items also agree with what is selected in both Column A and Column B.  The playlist displays all entries agreeing with columns A,B, and C.

What I would like to see if it is not too much trouble to implement:
All items from the media library meeting Column A's criteria are displayed in Column A, but only if such items agree with what is selected in Columns B and C.  All items from the media library meeting Column B's criteria are displayed in Column B, but only if such items agree with what is selected in Column A and C.  All items from the media library meeting Column C's criteria are displayed in Column C, but only if such items agree with what is selected in Column A and B.  The playlist displays all entries agreeing with Columns A,B, and C.

I was under the impression this is also what Shade was requesting.

If you set all the precedence levels to 9 and refresh the criteria for each browser using shift+right click, then it should do this.

A couple of requests. First, can you make an option to remove "[All]" from any of the browser windows. Or perhaps instead of letting us get rid of it entirely, there could be an option for [All] to populate the other browser windows only, and not the playlist. I want this partly because when I start up foobar, the broswer has [All] selected by default which makes the loading time a lot slower because it needs to populate the playlist with some 30,000+ files.

I use the below code to show a nice note character aside the track (in a dedicated column) when it is playing or paused:

Code: [Select]
$if($or(%isplaying%,%ispaused),- $char(9835) -))


The problem is Browser doesn't seem to keep this information. When I switch between one filter to another, and then back to the one, the note character aside the currently playing track disappears.

Is there a workaround to this? If it is to be considered a bug, could it be fixed, Bowron? Thanks for your attention.

EDIT:

Let me just add an opinion... since it seems that, while it is being used, Browser makes foobar incapable of detecting the currently playing song, this problem could be very relevant, for it will certainly affect the functionality of other important components, like Album Art (clicking on the album art to focus the currently playing song will not work when you are using Browser instead of a regular playlist).

%isplaying% and %ispaused% are only available in the context of a playlist.  This is not a browser bug.  Browser is not meant to be a replacement for a playlist view.

Ah, I see. Sorry for the mistake. No way to workaround it, then? Like creating an "internal variable" (or whatever, don't know how to call it) specific for Browser, for detecting the current state of the song?

It's possible, but not practical.

If only because that would require refreshing the panels everytime a new tracks starts playing and that can take a long time in some instances.

Have you considered using the playlist as a single column panel with 1 field in the position you would use for yoru track name browser? I think this will accomplish the behavior you appear to by attempting, and playlist can process TAGZ to put your note character after the name also.

There's no way to do this automatically at this point, but you can right click on the playlist tab and select "Browse", or select the files you want to browse and choose Browse from the context menu.

I use foo_browser in combination with foo_utils (naturally). As double click action I'd like to assign 'Edit Other - Add to Specified Playlist' but this doesnt work.
Is it possible to expand this option to include the existing playlists like in the context menu or the keyboard shortcuts? That way we could differentiate between the Browser playlist and a Playback playlist (like an editable playback queue)!

Hope you like the idea

Hum, sorry for taking so long to answer, I wasn't reading the forums.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Should I have a seperated panel (and playlist) with a playlist view dedicated to the note thing?

But I've a mistake. When I use foo_browser I've my tracks in double : one with old name and another with new name.

@ cbowron

I tagged all my jazz tracks with performers too.

Now, if I'd like to choose to listen only to tracks where Miles Davis AND John Coltrane are playing, I have to use two panels.
If I'd like to listen to tracks where Miles is playing with anybody but Coltrane I think I can't.
Do you think it would be possible to have a modifier key, maybe Alt, working as an AND as it now Ctrl works as an OR when selecting more than one line in the same panel? And using Shft as NOT when added to Alt?

Examples:

Miles Davis
Ctrl + John Coltrane
= Miles Davis OR John Coltrane

Miles Davis
Alt + John Coltrane
= Miles Davis AND John Coltrane

Miles Davis
Alt + Shft + John Coltrane
= Miles Davis AND NOT John Coltrane

In short: Ctrl = OR; Alt = AND; Alt+Shft = AND NOT

Thanks.

My second request has probably been asked already, but could you make the browsers remember their selections when shutting down foobar so that we can use the autoresume feature? Thanks

Sorry if it seems obnoxious to quote myself, but I think something that really needs to be fixed is the breaking of the "remember playback position" feature. Could you maybe add an option to not populate the playlist at startup (but still populate the browser windows) or have what I suggested in my post above, by letting us disable "[All]" from populating the playlist? Doing so could also fix a problem caused by using uie_explorer with browser which sometimes causes the browser window and playlist to repopulate when a selection is made in uie_explorer, thus automatically selecting "[All]" and causing a lot of slowdown with a big library.
Another way of solving this would be to give us the option of requiring a double-click to activate a browser row.
Thanks again for all your hard work on this plugin. It's what has kept me hooked to foobar,
Title: foo_browser
Post by: david_dl on 2006-07-03 03:17:45
I second this request. The feature of foobar where it remembers the playlist position when you reopen it is incredibly useful, but browser ruins it by refreshing the playlist (which is an autoplaylist and cannot be modified anyway)

@fabiospark

The feature you wish is not so urgent for me but i would use it in some cases - very nice idea! Just like to say that for better recognition that feature could be combined with the browsers ability to have custom colors for selection: So that an "AND"-selection has a different color than an "OR"-one.

I didn't have time to test the last version of foo_browser but in the version before everything worked fine with resume playback

Resume playback works, but only with playlists not associated with the browser, or if your current browser playlist is "[All]" (as this gets loaded at startup by default).

Yep. Actually, the first time I got them was when I first added a new browser panel to my layout and then tried to populate it. After that, it happened whenever I started up foobar until I reverted to the previous foo_browser version.

I believe I have discovered a bug when adding a panel through foo_browser's preference tree.

(http://img48.imageshack.us/img48/8180/foobrowserbug13hn.png)
--

When the [Add] button is pressed, foo_browser creates a "New" entry in the panel list, however activates a configuration window for an existing panel instead of he "New" panel.

(http://img434.imageshack.us/img434/3599/foobrowserbug24ty.png)
--

At this point the user can press [OK] and save the settings for whatever existing panel was opened, the existing panel will remain and the "New" panel will need to be [Edit]'ed.

(http://img125.imageshack.us/img125/1175/foobrowserbug38ig.png)
--
However, if the user selects [Cancel] (which was my natural instinct, seeing a config for something other than what I wanted to edit) the "New" panel is created but the existing panel is deleted entirely.

(http://img125.imageshack.us/img125/9061/foobrowserbug42jx.png)
--

I discovered this bug while running foo_browser v1.2.2 [Jul 3 2006 - 13:21:45] on Foobar v0.9.2, however I updated to foo_browser v1.2.2b [Jul 5 2006 - 08:48:38] and the bug persists. This is not a high priority to fix considering it doesnt affect the normal day to day use of the browser panels however if a user is not careful it is very easy to unexpectedly delete panels during configuration.

Not sure if this has been mentionend yet. After a foobar restart, the browser doesn't remember its last position. It would be great if the browser could jump to the last played item in database after a restart.

It may already work with only 1 browser active, but not for 2 or more. I have  the browsers set to "genre" and "artist".

Anyways, best plugin for foobar much better than albumlist.

Is it just me, or is anyone else not able to get the multiple tag support to work? I am using the "tag" format (with no %) with tags delimited by "\" and I am just seeing them as one long tag rather than multiple tags. I tried using %tag% also with comma delimited tags and that wouldnt work either.

That did it, thanks. Im still having a bit of trouble with multiple tagging, though. It seems that foobar doesnt always detect delimited tags. Ill go into the properties page and add a delimited ("\") tag, and often it doesnt split it into multiple values. Is there something I need to be doing to get it to detect that?

I wonder if this is possible. I'm not very good at foobar... I would like it so that when you play something from the Browser playlist, the whole playlist would go to another playlist, like a Now Playing playlist and play there. This way I can carry on browsing and loading up new playlists in the Browser playlist without it messing up the Now Playlist.

Thanks in advance, great plugin by the way!

Setting the precedence level of the panels in ColunsUI is a feature that is not going to come as already mentioned by Chris. I think i have an idea how this could be simulated:

Filtered Panels list in context menu (shift&rightclick)

Once a panel is defined its precedence level is also known. It would make sense to have an option to filter the list of available panels so that only these panels are shown that belong to the same level.

That feature would have two advantages:

1. I can create for each %tag% more than just one panel wich have different levels. So the different panels are shown in different lists. You avoid a list where you have f.e. 4 entries for artist

2. It could not happen again that you accidentally put an panel left from a panel with lower level.

Side effects

- defining an empty panel: to avoid the complete list on the beginning all the panels could be organized in submenus of its level. Or the first context menu of an empty panel opens a menu from 0 till 9 to check the level which panels are then shown when you right click again

- possibility to clear a panel so that you have an empty panel again: the level then could be changed

What do you think?[/quote]

I think that, as by now we can dynamically change the reference of a panel (artist, album etc) with just a couple of clicks, we should be able to do the same with the precedence level independently from the refererence tag.
Especially now that foo_uie_tabs has come to life again.
I'm imagining a layout with, say... four foo_uie_tabs panels, each with many (all?) different browser panels. So I could load a reference tag just clicking on a tab instead of having to use both hands. Each tabs panel should let me select its precedence level on the spot - with a text box maybe.
This would lead to performance problems because you would end up with about 20 or 30 browser panels and, for now, all of them will try to refresh after every selection.
It would be required that only the visible browser panels should refresh.
But probably this would mean re-code everything from scratch, so....

...mmmmmmmmmmmmm...

While re-reading my post and yours, it dawned on me this other thought:

Why not just create this kind of presets:

Code: [Select]
Artist 1 = %artist% (or just artist) + precedence = 1
Artist 2 =     same                  + precedence = 2
Artist 3 ...
...

Album 1...
Album 2...


and so on for all the tags we like.

Then, in each of our four or five (or... 25) browser panels we can easily choose on the spot the reference tag and the precedence level. I didn't try it yet but if this work and if it would let us save different column ui layouts with different browser panels settings it would be quite useful.

I think.

I alrerady tested foo_uie_tabs in combination with the browser and i also created a layout where i don't need to change any panel more. On the other hand i created other layouts for other purposes where i use the browser without panels.

I'd rather like the ability to change my mind on the single panels than having to change a whole layout just to have situation in the middle instead of rating or whatever else. I think this would be the most dynamic system to select the music you'd like to listen to. I'm thinking mostly on wives (well, as Foobar users, of course). To change a layout you'll have to think twice the way you'd like to use to make your selection: once to figure out which layout you will need and second when you select the keys. In the other way you can think step by step.


Good night, for now.

No, foo_browser was started as a 0.9 component.

Playlist tree prior to 2.0 had a built in browsing component that is less sophisticated, but that is available from my website: http://foobar.bowron.us/oldversions/foo_pl..._tree_1.7.9.zip (http://foobar.bowron.us/oldversions/foo_playlist_tree_1.7.9.zip)

@fabiospark

I did some further testing with the newest version of foo_uie_tabs and i must say that the integration of the tabbed panels stacks in ColumnsUi layout let me forget my dream. The possibilities in combination with the browser are just incredible:

a) just a normal panel like before foo_uie_tabs
b) you put some panels in the tab mode like in foobar 0.8
c) now you also can put tabs in a tab too
d) or you can use a splitter to put more than one panel in a tab

Once you have organized all your fields in a sophisticated layout you will not need predefined layout shemes because playing around with layout and precedence level gives you almost all possibilities and quick access.
The only problem you have already mentioned: The more panels you have the lower the speed. I remarked in PT that tabbed panels of playlist tree are redrawn (i see a flicker) when activated by tab: perhaps it is not such a hard task to refresh only visible panels because a component can be aware of if a tab is open or not. Perhaps Chris is going to say something to that.

But to come back to my request of the filtered panel list: i still think that they would be helpful for panels outside of tabs.

Lol, yeah.. That's an odd coincidence. I'm too lazy to have bothered waiting so long before creating an alternate account, though.

It's been a while since I updated columns_UI so that might be it. It usually goes 2-3 months between each time I make changes in foobar so it's not unusual that some of the components are out of date. Thanks for the suggestion.

It would have to be done in foo_uie_explorer.  foo_browser allows its contents to be modified by other plugins by using callings its context menu command "Browse...", which is how playlist tree communicates with it.

If on winamp I double click on an album or an artist I put all the song of the album/artist in the playlist, and I play it. Even if I browse other artist/album in the library, untill I double click on them, winamp continues playing the old playlist.
In foobar with foo_browser if I browse the library when listening something, when the song ends Foobar starts playing what I am browsing.

WOW! Its clear why the most popular player in the world is fb2k - the wonderful userbase support. I have previously looked in both the columsui config page and the browser config and could not see anything as straight forward as check boxes or something I needed to check or options I needed to change.

In foobar with foo_browser if I browse the library when listening something, when the song ends Foobar starts playing what I am browsing.

I think I have mine working they way you want, if I'm understanding you correctly.

I think the secret is to blank out the "Browser Playlist" field in the Browser config. I set my double-click action to "Edit/Send to Current Playlist and Play", which replaces the playlist when I double click. I think you would want to set it to "Edit/Add to Current Playlist" or something like that (you also might need foo_utils for these options). By blanking out the "Browser Playlist" field, the playlist isn't changed when you're just single clicking in the browser.

Hope this helps.

(I would really like to see Middle Click options in addition to the double click options, so I could middle click to add files to the playlist. Any chance of getting this added to the feature request list?)

First: thanks for your excellent plugins! Secondly, I have two small feature requests for the browser plugin:

1) Customize default left-click action
2) Option to automatically "Browse" the currently activated playlist

The reason for this is that when combined with foo_utils, the browser could be used to rapidly locate things within large playlists by setting the left click to "Edit/Highlight in Current Playlist" and the "Browser Playlist" to blank. Having the automatic browse upon playlist change would just keep the browser panel in sync with the playlist panel much in the way that playlist_tree does. It would be the same as right clicking on a playlist and choosing browse, and then double clicking on a browser entry, but with two fifths of the clicks, and 60% more awesomeness.

In fact, I'd really prefer to use playlist tree if it could activate, create, and destroy playlists. The ability to set icons on playlists is a cool feature that the columnsui playlist switcher could really use.

Playlist Tree gives you just advantages: You have more possibilities than with Album List or Autoplaylists. And for me one of the most important features: Static Folders for static playlists that are readen recursively. I just use the Foobar playlists for special playlists (Search Results from foo_uie_quicksearch,...) or as quick access for something i am going to hear more frequently in future.

Why not just use playlist tree for all your playlist management and stop using the foobar2000 playlists for management?


The primary reason is that the playlist tree, as far as I can figure out, only has the ability to work well with query-based (at the very least, query sorted) playlists. As great as that is, I like to sort my smaller playlists by hand (for example, playlists being sent to burninate), and as soon as you browse elsewhere with playlist tree, any manual sorting done overwritten and lost. Also, if you jump around in the tree during playback, whatever is currently playing gets wiped and started from the top of the currently displaying playlist... while I can see these being desired behaviours by some (perhaps even most!), when I really think about it, playlist tree doesn't go too well with my desired workflow. The browser, however, is close enough to feel it breathing.

Why not just use playlist tree for all your playlist management and stop using the foobar2000 playlists for management?


The primary reason is that the playlist tree, as far as I can figure out, only has the ability to work well with query-based (at the very least, query sorted) playlists. As great as that is, I like to sort my smaller playlists by hand (for example, playlists being sent to burninate), and as soon as you browse elsewhere with playlist tree, any manual sorting done overwritten and lost. Also, if you jump around in the tree during playback, whatever is currently playing gets wiped and started from the top of the currently displaying playlist... while I can see these being desired behaviours by some (perhaps even most!), when I really think about it, playlist tree doesn't go too well with my desired workflow. The browser, however, is close enough to feel it breathing.


playlist tree supports static playlists (folders) that you can build playlists by hand by dropping tracks from the playlist or from windows explorer.  I set up my playlist tree so that if i double click a node, it starts playing the tracks in the node (folder or query) and no playlists are modified if i just browse around in the tree.

If you havent checked it out, you might want to take a look at the playlist tree tutorial: http://wiki.bowron.us/index.php/Playlist_Tree_Tutorial (http://wiki.bowron.us/index.php/Playlist_Tree_Tutorial)

I'd seen that page before, but only in searching for some specific things. After going through the whole page though, I'm seeing now that the playlist tree isn't so much a compliment to the standard playlist viewer/switcher, but a superset of them. Instead of creating playlists and organizing them with the default columnsui panels, it can all be done in the playlist tree. The regular track viewer becomes more of a queue viewer and manager of dynamic information, and the tree becomes the primary navigator.

After spending many years with Winamp (just switched to foobar a few weeks ago) where there is usually only one way to accomplish a given task, the near unlimited configurability of foobar is something I've yet to completely wrap my head around. I think I'll stick with just the browser panels for now since I still prefer the regular columnsui playlist/track panels, but I wouldn't be surprised if I find a solid use for the playlist tree in the future.

@random.n

I like your idea! Especially the point that every changing in playlist view is reflected by the browser. The advantages are very clear:

- you don't have to use the context menu for browsing
- every playlist or special playlist from another plugin (foo_ui_explorer, foo_ui_quicksearch, foo_history, ...) are suddenly browsed without the need that the browser is supported by these plugins
- if you are like me you will have more than just album or single display mode for your foobar playlists and could keep these modes while browsing
- the synchronization of browser and playlist: if you add or remove something to/from playlist it is reflected by browser
- the sorting of browsed playlist isn't touched
- a very useful workflow

On the other side i am a little bit sceptical. You also anticipated some problems as you  requested the "Highlight in Playlist" feature for leftclick:

Quote
The reason for this is that when combined with foo_utils, the browser could be used to rapidly locate things within large playlists by setting the left click to "Edit/Highlight in Current Playlist" and the "Browser Playlist" to blank


Your feature request would not just be an additional feature but would also be incompatible with the concept of browser playlist if you don't like to dispense with the filtering of playlist while selecting rows inside browser panels.

Let me explain that:
If you like that your browser selection gives back a filtered playlist and this selection is sended to browser playlist you would loose the opportunity that browser reflect changes of playlist because you aren't manipulating the source playlist but just the browser playlist. A solution could be foosions suggestion on first page of this thread
Quote
...setting an undo point. Just call playlist_manager::playlist_undo_backup() before you modify the playlist.
The browser playlist then only would be neccesary if you browse for example a selection from playlist view or another plugin like database search - in that case the browse command would just send the selection to activated browser playlist and nothing more. All these ends in a decision for one of two possible modes of browsing that has to be made in preferences.

If someday the browser will indeed offer these two modes of browsing i really would decide for the new mode because it would be the best workflow at least for me. On the other side: I can live with the old mode.

@Chris
Isn't it an evil thing that every feature request provokes new requests and that users like to keep developers busy?      However: Thanks for your present to have a great library viewer for a great player!
Title: foo_browser
Post by: random.n on 2006-08-02 19:46:13
Well, in order to maintain the actual Winamp Library/iTunes style filtering while browsing per-playlist, I think columnsui would have to support the ability to truly hide (not just backup/delete!) tracks from the playlist view while still maintaining the playlist line numbering. The reason for that would be so filtering could result in a display of lines 1,3,6,10, and playing track 3 while leaving filtering enabled would cause the next track to be #6, but disabling filtering during track 6 (ie: Selecting [All]) would cause the next track to be #7, not #4 as it would become when using a backup function.

I see that as a large amount of work for the developers, as it would require a large retooling of both columnsui and browser (and in that case, ideally quicksearch as well). The highlight in playlist idea might not be the original idea behind browser (it becomes more of a jump-to instead of show-only), but it's a significantly shorter alteration.

(and yes; oh, so evil )

I think I requested this feature before, but I want to make sure. It would be great if there was an option to disable populating the playlist when selecting "[All]."  It would still populate the other browser panels, but NOT the browser playlist. This would be very useful for setups with really large libraries because we could reset subpanels to show everything without having to wait for a huge playlist to load.

First, I merely quoted myself for the purpose of posting the issue for which I received no response.  I was wondering if this issue was specific to me or a generally known issue with browser.  Second, your rather rude reply is certainly unjustified.  Third, I take strong issue with respect to your contention that no one cares about a display glitch in this plugin.  Obviously, I care.  Also, I would suggest that a lot of other foobar users care a great deal about the appearance of their foobar, which is clearly evidenced by the fact that some of the most popular threads on this forum are dedicated to tweaking the appearance of foobar, and the messages contained therein demonstrate the substantial efforts people make to correct even the smallest display issues related to foobar and its components.

Im trying to figure out the behavior of foo_browser. I want to basically use it to browse my library to get to songs more quickly, then add those files to a queue or playlist. Currently it seems that whatever is selected in the browser IS the queue/playlist.

I have my fb2k set up much like a traditional winamp/itunes. I have the artist/album/genre columns on the right over a columns playlist panel, which I basically want to use as a library panel. On the left, I have a panel that I wish to use as a playlist queue.

I hope I was clear. Can anyone help me?

Well I was playing around tweakng my foobar and came up with a  browser panel that lets me pull all the different remixes of a given song from everywhere in my library and dump them on a playlist.  It all hinges on a song title ending in '(remix name)' so there's bound to be a few songs out there that dont work. But still I like the column and thought I'd share. Here's the code:

Code: [Select]
$trim($left(%title%,$sub($strrchr(%title%,$char(40)),1)))


I use this in conjunction with other panels such as Artist. Though I suppose if you used it on it's own it would give you all the remixes of all the songs with the same name regardless of artist.
Title: foo_browser
Post by: Yotsuya on 2006-08-12 12:47:05
I would like to make a feature request.

Under the current foo_browser there is an option in the preferences pane called "Browser Playlist" that allows us to define the name of the playlist foo_browser uses to display it's results. This field already supports TAGZ, so we could for example enter "%genre%" and foo_browser will display it's results in a playlist named after the genre of the song.  The problem (as I see it) is the fact that the TAGZ is only evaluated during the first result. So in this genre example, if your foo_browser resulted in a bunch of songs with different genres.. all songs would appear on a playlist named after the genre of the first song.  What I would like to request is that this TAGZ filtered destination playlist be re-evaluated for every entry. So that, continuing with the example, the results would all appear gouped on separate playlists each named after the songs' genre.

My primary intenton would be to whip up some code to split my albums and singles into 2 separate playlists, each dynamically filtered by multiple foo_browser panels.

this component does not currently support multiple values per field, this is documented on the component's main wiki as a feature request.

if you would like to parse directory structure you'll need to change your browser panel source to something using $directory(%path%,n) depending on your structure instead of %artist%.

Feature requests

1)

In a panel, we can easily select more than one item with ctrl or shift keys.
But, in this way we are getting an "OR" among the selected items: isn't there a way to easily get an "AND" instead? By now I have to set up many panels with the same tag but with lower precedence to get that result. Maybe two radio buttons on top of each panel (if wanted) with "AND" and "OR" and then process the selection with the chosen operator.
(My usage of this is mostly with the performers info: quite often I'd like to select only those tracks where plays together say, Miles Davis + John Coltrane + Bill Evans etc.)

2)

Can we have an option to lock a precedence level for a specific panel? (Maybe beside those radio buttons above...) In this way, we could just load different headers to get different lay-outs and we know which the panels precedences are by their position. I tried with columns UI lay-out change but it's too slow to be useful. By now I would have to set up a list of headers each of them with all the different precedence levels and then load "3 performer" after maybe "2 title" and "0 genre" and "1 rating".
With all my tags the list would be endless (and for a wife it would be easier not to have to pay attention to the numbers)

Thanks.

Whatever I put in the Sort field is ignored. For instance, %date% (or date) in the Album panel causes no order change. The Format field works perfectly.

Component version is 1.2.2c.

I know this was a problem in older versions, but now it seems to be working properly for the majority. I assume there's something wrong with my configuration.

Sorry if the answer is obvious or something, but I did search and found no clarification (only an unanswered question about the same thing). How to make this work?

OK, thanks

I've started making my things with this impressive plug-in, but I have some troubles then.

I've made 5 browsers, the first one select the album genre, actually "Classical" or "Modern" (as the Classical mp3s have got their own folders), then selection of the date, then selection of the artist, then selection of the format (LP, EP, single, OST, etc.), and then selection of the albums.

But I don't like the way the things appear in my playlist. I want it to appear in the directory alphabetical order. For the moment it appears in the order alphabetical order, but including subfolders.

Then singles and LPs for example aren't not put together if they have the same artists, as a single will be call [Singles]/Artist - Disc, when a normal LP is not into a proper folder but the main one.

I would like also to keep the normal alphabetical order for the browsers.


Another problem, browser makes foobar freeze a little bit when I start it (I've got 1 GiB of RAM), and same thing each time I try to change a value in the browsers.

hmmm, different here, all is still a mess
I've been playing around with all kind of settings lately, so maybe also some sort changes I better would not have done. Any hint what might have caused the mess?

EDIT (for other newbies that might read this one day): As a newbie I just now found that sorting and formatting the panels are different things. Filling the sorting option of the individual browser panels just with "*", which I understand just refers to the formatting string, seams to result in difficulties with the 'playlist tree' commands like 'add to'. Putting proper strings in the sorting option now helped getting the desired order when adding files from browser to active playlist.

2) Oh and one more thing: any shortcut to refreshing the browser so that I don't have to use the library-menu-command? Maybe somehow possible to get it into the context-menu?

Is there a way to integrate a search with foo_browser? By this I mean in the same way as iTunes, where searching automatically trims the browsing panels (i.e. you browse the results of a search.)

Bug: Using keyboard to navigate the panels which foo_browser shows (i.e. pressing 'e' to jump to the first item starting with 'e', etc..), causes a keyboard shortcut to be performed aswell, whilst using foo_uie_single_column_playlist. I.E., I bind 'X' to play, and if I press 'X' whilst using the foo_browser panels, then it searches the foo_browser panel, generates the playlist, and because of 'X' being binded to play, plays the song. (may not be your problem)

spex04, is your 'X' shortcut a Global hotkey?  If so, then it is not a problem with foo_brower.

Nope, I thought that at first, but they are just regular hotkeys.

hello,
a little question:
i tried to put in the artist column %artist%+%album artist%.
i tried different combinations like
Code: [Select]
 $if3(%artist%, %album artist%, <MISSING>)

and it gave me %artist%+%album artist% but... if i have an album of bob Dylan and a soundtrack that has song of Bob Dylan - it didn't display the song from the soundtrack - but it did displayed the %album artist% of the soundtrack.

whats the right code for it?
thanks...

I am against that! Why? Although i would use it!

The browser is a media library viewer and i would be happy if its origin functionality would be improved everytime Chris puts time and work in it. Not every component must represent the new foobar style. But sure: it is up to Chris to decide in which direction he likes to develope his two ml viewers.
Title: foo_browser
Post by: Birk on 2006-10-15 12:24:35
I thought of two versions of the browser component (one normal like it is now and one with the ability of showing pictures and different font sizes). And not only chris can programm components, maybe someone else could programm "foo_browser_mod".
I don't use the "new foobar style" because it's nearly useless for me, but foo_browser_mod would be very usefull for me. For example I could display artists which I like more bigger than others, and selecting albums by clicking on their cover would be very nice.

I'd like to see the ability to alternate the background for a couple of rows rather than just having one plain background.

Also the ability to align the list using the padding method.

And finally, somehow get the fonts to look smoother, because currently i'm using the same font in my browser as my playlist and yet they look completely different because the browser font is quite jaggy.

Hey Cbowron. I was wondering if you had it in the works to emply drag and drop from the Browser into the playlist.

Playlist Tree already has this functionality, however, even in the .9 version the songs actual are just added to the playlist, rather than going where 'dragged.'

Just being nitpicky, of course. Keep up the good work, your components are the best

Is anyone using foo_browser on Vista RC2 successfully? I've setup my design partly on XP/Vista, but while setup with no problems on XP, it's totally unusable in Vista. I get "Bad Allocation" on almost every action I take. Often i'm unable to start fb2k - Only deleting my database.fpl file could make it start up again.

Edit: I think the problems are somewhat related to foo_playlists_dropdown (I've had my issues with this one on XP too). But I wonder why the problems remain after removal of the plugin, and things aren't back to normal before the Media Library has been deleted and rebuild.

Final edit: Columns UI author has announced that Vista causes random crashes with fb2k. However to my experience, foo_albumlist (same author) is causing the most instability

Yes, there's an option for setting the double-click's function in the preferences. If it isn't there, then you need an additional component which I forget the name of. On the other hand I've had mixed results from trying to do it, so it may not be faultless (I can't check because I'm not at home)

I don't know that it is directly, but there is a script built in to foobar2000's tagging system that splits "artist" tags into several ones (e.g. if there's an "and", or a "," or a few other sets of characters it will become two tags at that point.) This then sorts correctly.

Keep in mind that you need to refresh the browser panel settings by shift+right clicking on them and selecting their criteria after you make changes to the precedence levels.

I have a panel setup with this format:

$if2(%<style>%,<MISSING>)

But that returns all the values on one line separated by commas.  I would want each value to be listed individually and when any of the values are selected the track would show up in the Browser playlist.

It works this way in Album List, but I can't seem to get it to work in the Browser.

Thanks!

Hm. New here, and don't really have time to work my way through 29 pages...

So, a few questions:

1) is this plugin still delevoped? Is stuff happening?

2) Would it be at all possible to make the "population of lists" take place in the background or something? It's kind of annyoying having to wait several seconds for them to populate when I start the program, and I'd very much like to be able to do stuff right away...

I use that same bit of code and it returns my multivalue tags as separate tags. Maybe the problem is that your style tag was not formatted as a multivalue tag? If that is the case, go to preferences > advanced > the properties dialog node. Within that node there is a Multivalue Fields setting where you can add tags you wish to be formatted as multivalue. Add your style tag to that.

You can tell if a tag is not being formatted as a multivalue tag when you're editing a tracks tag value. In the Edit Value window it says Use ; character to separate multiple values on the bottom of the window. If that phrase is grayed it means your tag will not be formatted as a multivalue tag.

Thank you very much... that worked for me.  I had thought I had set my tag as a multivalue tag, but for some reason it did not stay.  It is strange because it showed as seperate lines in Album List, but not in Browser (or Playlist Tree).  I went back and changed the tag to multivalue, saved it, and then retagged the some files and it is working perfectly.

Hope this works for others that were having the same problem as well!

The "Sort" function is either entirely broken for me, or (hopefully, probably) I'm missing something really obvious. I have read that it is buggy, but I seem to be the only one who can't get it to do anything.  I've read through this whole thread and tried things that other people have had success with, with no luck. 

Anything other than an asterisk (*) in the "Sort" box results in the browser panel putting all the entries in a completely random order. 

I don't really understand the coding well, but my browser format is currently set up to sort by album artist (to handle compilations by grouping them together) and place any leading "The" at the end of the artist name.

Format:
Code: [Select]
$if($strcmp($left(%album artist%,4),The ),$right(%album artist%,$sub($len(%album artist%),4))', 'The,%album artist%)


But if I put anything at all in "Sort," it shuffles everything out of order in the Browser panel.  I am making sure to refresh by shift+right-clicking in the Browser panel and reselecting my checked browser; all this does is mix up all the artists like I have described.

What I want is, if I select an artist that is part of that compilation, the playlist show all the album, an not only one or two tracks, that are played by the artist.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that changes the font size only.  What I'm looking for (within the browser panels) is row height (padding) such as the option for playlists (ie. Display > Columns UI > Playlist View > [Option] = Vertical item padding = "x").  With the padding option you can have 8pt font but with 3px padding top and bottom of the row...

When customizing the playlist with this option, the browser panels start looking odd (because you can't add padding)...???

I use foo_uie_quicksearch to do this.  It's not perfect, but it works.  You can set up a keyboard shortcut (I use ctrl-q) for 'Quicksearch for same Album'.  This will create a new playlist with all of the tracks from the album containing any track you have selected.

If it isn't possible can this option be added (if its not too much trouble )?
Title: foo_browser
Post by: shakey_snake on 2007-10-10 00:46:26
Let me restate. The browser component is built on the same codebase as the playlist tree component, but they are completely separate, independent components
They cannot and do not interact with each other in any way. They each interact separately with the media library.

That is, they are separate views of foobar's built in media library (which natively has no GUI)
Title: foo_browser
Post by: amiti on 2007-10-10 01:46:36
They are completely seperate except from the fact you can browse the playlist tree results.
Anyway in my second post I referred only to the browser solely .
Title: foo_browser
Post by: shakey_snake on 2007-10-10 01:54:54

Title: foo_browser
Post by: shakey_snake on 2007-10-10 06:40:11
The "Browse" command you are speaking of is simply a function of the playlist context menu, which allows you to browse a playlist.

The component foo_browser places this entry in the playlist context menu. foo_playlist_tree calls upon the playlist context menu when right-clicked (by default). If you were to try this with columnsUI's playlist switcher, you would get the same thing, as it also calls upon the playlist context menu.

But this has nothing to do with playlist_tree and browser interacting with each other, or playlist_tree "feeding" the browser as you put it.
So, re-read my posts in our conversation, and you should be able to deduce that your idea cannot be implemented without a rewrite of the components.

The latest version of foo_browser is here (http://www.bazquux.com/wiki/Foobar2000:Browser)



Be aware that foo_browser has been discontinued and no longer developed. I'm pretty sure that the last version still worked well.

Those looking for an alternative should check into foo_facets.

I am looking to use the album panel to browse for %album artist% if present, if not %artist%. is this not the way to go?

Code: [Select]
$if3(%album artist%,%artist%,<MISSING>)

it's not needed. the functionality is already built into columns UI. just add some filter panels to your layout.

Hey guys please check this out.

I'm trying to make fb2k look like iTunes using THIS (http://www.teqnilogik.com/tutorials/foobar2000_itunes.shtml) tutorial. Now it says you need foo_browser.dll. I read here it's not needed. In step 11 it tells you to add browser panels. They're not available without this plugin. I can't find a download link. Can somebody help me out plz? Thx.

foo_browser is as outdated as the tutorial you are mentioning. You should follow the advice, which is given in the post above yours, and use the filter panels instead of the browser panels.

Hi, this is my configuration for use with 7" touchscreen lcd:

(http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/3721/foobarq.jpg)

since the browser is outdated and I fear it will always be less compatible with future versions of foobar, is there a way to get tabs with linked filters (genre/album artist/artist/album so when i click a genre it change the album artist/artist/album filters) inside with the current plugins?
I've tried and searched around but without results; Many thanks to whoever can help me in some way.

For all those that won't read the thread here goes:

This (foo_browser) component is obsolete as ColumnsUI already includes a panel with the exact same function. It's called "Filter Panel" instead of this "Browser Panel".


...now can we close this thread?

I've tried to obtain linked TABBED filter panels  with current ColumnsUI without success. Can you please explain me how to do this? Otherwise I must use this obsolete component and yes, you can close this thread...

Thanks

Yes, but you can find a lot of similar more inexpensive monitors (e.g. on ebay)

In Filter preference page, set 'Filter precedence' to 'By field list above'. It works
