Window title when foobar is idle

Hi,

Let's assume that I put this code in Preferences > DUI > Window title :
Code: [Select]
$if(%isplaying%,PLAYING,IDLE)
(this is just an example, the real code is more complex)

When foobar is playing, the window title and taskbar display "PLAYING".
However when foobar stops playing, the window title and taskbar display "foobar2000 v1.5.1".
This is not what I want, especially because I have several portable installs so they become difficult to differentiate in the taskbar. I don't want foobar displaying its name and version every time it's idle.

Can this be changed somehow ? Thanks !

Fear not, I can see your posts! ;)  I guess from the lack of answers you can assume no one knows how to do your request, probably hard-coded and not even possible. So at best a feature request.

Have you tried searching for an external solution? This post has two apps, and a make-your-own command line EXE in comments. Or you could try making an Autohotkey script / EXE and calling it from foo_scheduler command line.

Cheers

Thank you @anamorphic for answering !

It wasn't really a feature request, rather what I think is a glitch within foobar that IMHO could be corrected. If we can rename the window, why could we do it only when a song is playing and not the rest of the time ? Just wondering.

Thanks for your links. I'm not sure they'd work for me though, because my goal would be to set a custom title ONLY when nothing is playing, and then resume to my current titleformat title when music plays.
