Yes, you can copy plugin.ini between machines, no matter what player is used.

as you guys can see, the font, the size, and the color is exactly the same as the theme that i am using right now. however, the problem is that it isn't perfectly aligned. can anyone tell me why?

I see, I'll add an option to fine tune vertical alignment in one of the future builds.

I just started using this and it's great. Thanks.

But maybe someone can help me, I am using fb2k v0.9.1, and this is the preset I am using for mIRC

//describe $active now playing: %1 - [%4 #%3] - %2 - %min:%sec [%br~kbps]

And it works fine for mp3's and flac files (though I would like it to display the codec too, can't figure that out.)

lextune now playing: Morbid Angel - [Blessed Are The Sick #02] - Fall From Grace - 05:13 [insert codec here1010kbps]

But files with ape tags (WavPack, MPC) are missing the track number and title tags.

lextune now playing: Bloodbath - [Nightmares Made Flesh #] - - 03:37 [1058kbps]

?

Can someone help out an AMIP n00b, and give me the string that will add the missing tags to the ape tagged files? And ideally add the codec to the display for all of them as well.

a proposal: you could use the %s variable and define your desired string through foobar-amip-configuration!

Try configuring the string you need in foobar using foobar formatting variables (in AMIP Wrapper settings) and in AMIP use %s for this string.

Sweet! Thanks again ;D

Hi, thanks for the plugin, I use it to create playback log with "Callbacks/Web". The behaviour just seems a bit weird:

- "Play & change" writes a new entry when starting to play, when coming back from pause mode and when e.g. editing some of the tags
- "Play" seems to write an entry only when stopping the playback and starting again, not even when the playback naturally continues to next song

I don't quite understand the logic, at least with the latter one. What I'd expect to see is an entry every time playback is started from the beginning of the track (as when using play, next, random or letting foobar continue to the next track after finishing the current one).

Yeah, I know, it's a bit confusing, because you need only Change action. Actually, change action is invoked using the IRC Integration preset. So, instead of Callbacks/Web, put your command in the IRC Integration Preset.

For consistency I'll add Change Tab to the Callbacks/Web in one of the future builds.

Thank you again, this indeed does the trick. It doesn't add another entry if I play some track twice, but that's not a big deal.

Um ... i would like to display the codec used, but i didn't find a variable matching this, and I'm not really understanding the syntax (kinda dumb today  ), so i could code myself a variable/conditions-construct with the flags. Does anybody have a solution by hand?

AMIP - the complete now playing plug-in

Reply #212
AMIP doesn't have variable for codec (only for mp3 codecs), but you can use format flags and conditions to write codec info.

Also you can use foobar variables in wrapper settings and in AMIP use %s.

Should %vol tag work with Foobar2000? I'm trying to write the volume information into a text file, but the value is always 254. I'm using Foobar v0.91 and AMIP v2.53. (more info..)

I'm not sure, I'm using the standard API function to get the volume from player, but probably it returns the same constant volume.

Code: [Select]
static_api_ptr_t<playback_control> pc;
int vol = pc->get_volume();

Code: [Select]
class NOVTABLE playback_control : ...
    //! Retrieves playback volume level.
    //! @returns current playback volume level, in dB; 0 for full volume.
    virtual float get_volume() = 0;

The return type of this function has changed in 0.9. It might be a good idea to change your compiler settings so that it will generate a warning about potential data loss because of the implicit float to int conversion.

The problem here is not with the type conversion and possible data loss, but with the change in the scale. In 0.8 it was -10000..0 int, in 0.9 it is -100..0 float.

My code is converting it to 0..255 scale and of course it doesn't work correctly now. It would be nice to have it documented.

I'll change my code to work correctly with 0.9 for the next AMIP build.

I should also note that it's not the same as Winamp's 0..255 scale because with foobar it's logarithmic. I'll try to consider it in my new coversion code.

Is it possible to add a variable for total playlist time, not just number of songs in playlist (%ll)?

AMIP - the complete now playing plug-in

Reply #219
No, since such variable needs to be calculated and it can take a lot of time for large playlists.

when i'm using ctrl + alt + z, it writes only first played song... anyone know how to fix it? version 2.53 beta

Do you play streams, CUE files or real mp3/other standalone files? What is the state of player when you use the hotkey? Anything unusual with your playlist? Does Ctrl+J dialog work and show the correct current song?

ctrl + j don't work... all the songs are in white, can't see anything, playing mp3

Make sure that playlist is actually active and selected in foobar. What foobar version do you use? Any plug-ins that affect playlists?
