Create an external played track list from radio stream or file metadata

I was wondering if there currently exists a method/plugin that would allow Foobar to generate a simple external text file that would show a chronological list of tracks played, either tracks from radio stations if the metadata is present, or file track/artist, with the ability to set a cut-off by amount of entries kept and just a simple date/time, title/artist line format.  I guess the tricky part might be that this requires accessing dynamic data for streams like foo_dyndec does.  The AIMP player's "Track info to file" plugin accomplishes this, for example.

You could use foo_scheduler and on track change trigger a script to push each played track in your text file.
Requires a bit of tweaking and scripting knowledge but no programming.

You could use the following script for Spider Monkey Panel
The text file (history.txt) will be located in the foobar2000 directory.

Code: [Select]
"use strict";

window.DefinePanel("History File Writer", { author: "zeremy" });

// Use with GdiDrawText()
const DT_CENTER = 0x00000001;
const DT_VCENTER = 0x00000004;
const DT_WORDBREAK = 0x00000010;
const DT_CALCRECT = 0x00000400;
const DT_NOPREFIX = 0x00000800;

// Used in window.GetColorCUI()
const ColourTypeCUI = {

Thank you NEMO7538 and zeremy for your suggestions, much appreciated!  I had neither foo_scheduler nor Spider Monkey Panel installed previously, so decided to give the latter a try first as my scripting ability leaves a lot to be desired.  Zeremy I pasted your boss code into a SMP panel and saved, and it works great for streams and has all the line info I need!  I did notice though that it creates double (duplicate) entries for each played track in the history.txt file--any ideas where I can change that in the script?

I'm going to see what I can come up with with foo_scheduler also, as the SMP component is so "heavy" it seems overkill for this single task, but as long as I'm running it I'll be exploring the multitude of other things I see it can do as well.  At least I'm learning something here, thanks again to both of you!

Forgot to add, this is only in the case of dynamic radio stream metadata, not with actual files:

The function on_playback_dynamic_info_track() is called whenever dynamic radio stream metadata is received.
Added suppression of writing the entry when the metadata that is received is repeated.

Replace the panel's code with this:

Code: [Select]
"use strict";

window.DefinePanel("History File Writer", {author: "zeremy"});

// Use with GdiDrawText()
const DT_CENTER = 0x00000001;

Thanks zeremy for the revised code, works perfectly to suppress the repeated title!  I'm sure other users with SMP will be glad to add this ability too.  I see that max length of the file before overwriting is easily set with the "let max=" value.  Much appreciated!
