When you double click a music file on Explorer, the "Always send new files to playlist" option allows you to put that file in a different playlist, but the entire playlist is replaced with that file. I would like to see an option have new files added to the end of that playlist instead.
I have noticed this issue too..
 so I never bother with explorer file association I just drag and drop into a Foobar2000 playlist(s)
works as a work around... I guess..

but having this as a new or updated feature would be nice..

Then you also need to change the option for opening files from "play" to "enqueue". Unfortunately, there is no "enqueue and play" option, but you may or may not want that.

I would love winamp skin support.
The user could choose classic UI mode or winamp mode.

All advanced features are only available when winamp mode is disabled.

Any interest to make this?

An example player with winamp skin support is:

With all the changes recently made to the Properties window, I'd get a feature request mine in too. Basically if you're editing a multiline field on multiple files at once, the edit field can be a little too short sometimes. Screenshot to illustrate the point - it would be way more useful if the edit field could stretch to the height of the window instead of being limited to about 6 lines of text.

Hitting enter in Media Library Search should not alter the current playlist: either it should be a no-op, or it should be a preference like "Media Library -> Always send search results to playlist: Search Results" (analog to the existing "Shell Integration -> Always send new files to playlist: Default" preference).

It took me ages to find out why my playlists sometimes got cleared for no apparent reason (see https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=118521.msg979299#msg979299 ). Now I know: because I type a query in Media Library Search that doesn't have any results & hit enter. When I hit enter in a search field, I just mean to say "I finished typing my query, now search please".

Would be nice to have a way to remove manually added input field names. A few times I accidentally a M instead of a MEDIA, or a ba instead of BARCODE, now it gets recommended everytime a start to type M, when I just want MEDIA.

You can delete those in Advanced Preferences->Display->Properties Dialog->Field name suggestions, though it would be nice to be able to do it from the properties dialog too as it's easy to add them by accident

Начиная с версии 1.6 (если не ошибаюсь) в Keyboard Shortcuts нет пункта Popup Main Menu. Это ошибка?

Starting from version 1.6 (if I'm not mistaken), there is no Popup Main Menu item in Keyboard Shortcuts. This is mistake?

I figured out that the foo_ui_hacks component was responsible for the menu item, but I didn't install it.I would like to see virtual disk support as standard.With absolute paths, you can't share your builds with users.

Hi,

I would really appreciate if the "volume control slider" could be detached/unlinked from the Windows Volume Mixer slider.
In the options just a simple checkbox would be nice if someone wants it linked or unlinked!

If checked it would control the volume with Windows' solution,
If left unchecked I would expect a software volume control, thus I could use that as a "pre scaler" independently of Windows' solution.

This is what i mean:

That was already added but was removed in foobar v1.6 because of windows bugs.

FEATURE REQUEST: I would love to see the ability to show more ID3 picture types. Ideally, I would like to show ALL the different PictureType values listed in the ID3 specification.

I've always found it frustrating that I can add multiple picture types in MP3Tag that no music players support currently, such as "Publisher Logo", "Lyricist", and "Conductor". foobar2000 already takes display of picture types more seriously than most other music players, but there are actually 21 picture types in the ID3 specification we can choose from.

It would be wonderful if we could choose from any of the possible values. At the very least, if we could choose the composer picture type, that would be a wonderful boon to classical music fans like myself.

Feature suggestion: $dateformat() function, either from seconds or from a timestamp (in this case we need a timestamp function too, as well).
From seconds (or timestamp) will YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS, displayed as needed.

Currently i would like to convert $mul(%play_count%,%length_seconds%) (from foo_playcount) into conventional form. Now i must to use an own function with 543 characters... :(

The second to wishlist: how to use this dateformatted value for sorting in Playlist View? It handles it as a text, instead of dateformatted number, so i must to use for sorting a second column, the original $mul(%play_count%,%length_seconds%).

The columns' width in the File selection properties panel is automatic, which is confusing, when I display a field with a long name, for example Embedded cuesheet (General section) or <MP3_ACCURATE_LENGTH> (Other section). Manually adjustable column widths would be better.

Feature request: Context menu in Album Art Viewer UI element to view cover art image with its own viewer

Now that we have this option at new properties tab it would be nice to have it in context menu at Album Art Viewer UI element.
Option to chose whether to open external or embedded image would be nice too.

Suggested tweaks to string functions:
$substr(): A way to read to the end of the source string, either by omitting the 'to' parameter or by passing a negative value.
$strstr()/$strchr(): An option to specify where the search should start.  Would help with avoiding unnecessary $substr() calls.

For library files, it would be nice to have a way to get the path relative to the library folder it was sourced from.  Note: I recognize that a file may be present in more than one library folder, since foobar2000 will allow you to add a folder and it's own subfolder to the library.

I have a bunch of long sort strings.  Using the little 'Standard sort patterns' box in Advanced Preferences to update them is painful.  Even using copy/paste between there and a proper editor doesn't help much, because it's still one long string.  A UI to edit each sort pattern separately in a nice big box would be appreciated.

Cheers!

You can use $right() instead.

Can you please extend the queued tracks from 64 to around 200 or so?. I'm always hoping that this low limit gets changed to a higher amount in the next update and i always end up being disappointed :(.  For people like me who listen to music all day long 10+ hours, this limit is way too small, especially since i jump from one artist album to another. Other then that i think Foobar is the best music player ever created :).

I usually put 3-10 in the queue and add more as it whittles down..

You can use $right() instead.

In order to use $right() to do what I describe, I would have to use $len() and $sub().  In other words, add extra function calls, which is contrary to the purpose of the request - to reduce the number of function calls necessary. :)
