Title: foo_openurl
Post by: halabund on 04 August, 2007, 11:19:07 AM
This little component adds a context menu item to open URLs from metadata fields in a web browser.  The context menu items appear only if there is at least one URL for the selected track.  For security reasons, only http:// and https:// are supported.

I have a few playlists with online radio stations, I use this component with them.

How is this different from using foo_run to pass the URL to the default browser? What advantages does this plugin have in that regard?

At the moment (version 1), it has no advantages. (I did not know about foo_run before.) One difference is that the foo_openurl menu item is not shown if there is no URL tag. On the other hand, foo_run is very configurable.

Okay, now ver. 2 can list all URLs that it finds in a submenu.

Has this component ever been updated for fb2k v1.1 or later?
If not, perhaps the creator is willing to release the source code so someone else can update it?
Thanks.

Ver 2 (August 2007) still works OK. No need for new versions.

I have found that in order to this plugin "whatever name has" to work properly you need to embed the URL in the field URL and I was doing it in a field created by me with another name. I just used URL and the Open with appeared in the context menu. Ty.

EDIT: I was thinking that maybe you could add that feature? To customize the name of the field where we paste the URL.
