Please forgive if I've missed something - I've searched both this topic and the forum, and neither turned up the answer. The question's so basic, I'm almost embarrassed to ask, so I assume it's been answered already - just point me to the post if so

How do I get the album art panel to display in foobar v9??? The method that worked in 0.8 doesn't any more (the "Panels" menu gainsayed by right-clicking on the sidebar just shows me the playlist switcher, and nothing else). I cannot find any option to display it anywhere else, and I've right-clicked everywhere I can think of, in case it's moved menu.

I'm using the latest dll, downloaded to my components folder. What else do I need to do?

Ana: first, there is a new thread for the albumart component.  This thread really should not be used anymore.  Please make sure you get the latest version of uie_albumart for v0.9 from here.

Second, the new version of Columns UI still has the sidebar, but there is also a new, more powerful "Layout" system, available in "Preferences->Columns UI->Layout".  Check the Columns UI thread and wiki for more information.

Whoops, I thought this thread was the one linked to from the wanted_ports thread. My apologies. I'll, ah, go and sink quietly into this nice hole...

And apologies again, because I should have mentioned that I can't figure *that* out either, it just looks very similar to v0.8 I redownloaded Columns UI when the final v0.9 came out, I'll go and check if there's a later version I'm missing. Thanks

EDIT: Oooo... AJAX. Very swiss

For future reference: I was running an outdated version of Columns UI - dated 03/03/06 instead of 22/03/06. Now both the panel and layout system work fine.

Maybe it's a silly Question, but: Is it possible to use two Album Art Panels with different preferences. E.g. when I listen to a sampler, I want to see the Album Cover in one Panel and a pic of the Artist of the current Track in the second Panel. Like in the picture below.

Thx

Can someone please explain how to use uie_albumart in the sidebar thing? I don't know how to use foobar's skinning properly, so I am stuck without albumart.

right click on sidebar's title and choose Album art. Or play a bit with splitters in preferences/ColumnsUI/layout

I tried to edit the source code to have an artist picture panel but I never succeeded. But I'm pretty sure someone with good programming skills could do that easily.

Anyone interested?

Is there some wiki page with help full info on how to get code for the album location.
I don't want to read 31 pages looking for it.

I want to get it to use the first  the first 6 letters of the album and then look for in my cover directory for the cover with a filename that has the first 6 letters of the album at the start of the file name.

eg. Album - GTA San Andreas KJah

looks for GTA San*.jpg

D:\My Mp3s\Album Cover\$substr(%album%,1,6).jpg

Hoping it would pick up
GTA San Andreas.jpg


Also how come this component has no "About" dialog box i.e. to get the version number?.

wiki page

Also, please use the discussion thread for the updated version of this plugin.

You're very close with what you have.  I believe you'll want to try:

Code: [Select]
D:\My Mp3s\Album Cover\$substr(%album%,1,6)*.jpg

You can get component version numbers from the "Components" section of foobar2000's preferences.

Hi, I have a problem with album art in an upper folder
e.g "C:\MP3\ABC\cover.jpg" and the MP3 is inside "C:\MP3\ABC\CD1\11.mp3"

i tried with the following source but it won't work, does anybody has any idea what went wrong
Thanks.
Code: [Select]
$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)cover.jpg
-$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)..\cover.jpg

Just as a reminder, there's still that problem with the alignment of an image when padding is ON and centering is OFF.

One more thing, too.  When you right-click in the panel and select `open directory,' it opens the containing directory of the currently playing song, without regard.

ciao

hi!
i've been using this plugin for quite a time now and there was always this problem my (marginal) titlefomatting skills just couldn't solve.. but other than that it works like a charm for me!
well however, i can't seem to figure out how to make albumart translate a "-" in a filename into to a ":" though.. some album tags include ":" in their names but naturally windows doesn't let me put it into a filename so.. yeah..

i'd be thankful if somebody could help me..

anyways, thanks a mill for the plugin though!

here's the source file for my album art

$if(%path%,,images\logo.png)
$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)*.jpg
-$if($stricmp($left(%path%,7),'http://'),'images\radio.png',)
--$if($stricmp($left(%codec%,4),cdda),images\cdrom.png,)
--images\default.*


i'm using version 0.2.7.1 , it worked fine in 0.2.6
I use foobar 0.9.5 (the newest/final version)

is there anything that can be done or do i have to use older foo_uie_albumart version  ?
