foo_skip: skip tracks that match a specified search query

Reply #375
Would it be possible to implement a flag that can be called with something like %isskip% so we can check whether skip is ON or OFF? It would be useful for creating a visual status indicator. For example, if skip is ON, I would gray-out the title of all tracks that are going to be skipped, so I can instantly see if something won't be played.

Depending on what you are using in 'File/Preferences/Advanced/Playback/Skip tracks' as the query, you might be able to replicate the query syntax with titleformatting syntax, which can be then used to do what you want. For example:
Code: [Select]
%length_seconds% LESS 30

Code: [Select]
$ifgreater(%length_seconds%,30,,SKIPPED)

Some queries might be very painful to replicate so not to say what you propose isn't useful.

Thanks Daeron. You're absolutely right, but that's only half of what I want to accomplish. I want to use $if statements and replicate the skip query to determine if a track will be skipped when skip is turned on, but I need another $if to check if skip is turned on or off under Playback - Skip tracks & use bookmarks. That's where something like %isskip% would come in handy - not to check if a track would be skipped, but to check if the skip function is ON or OFF.

That way, if a track is set to be skipped AND the skip function is turned on, the track will be grey. But if a track is set to be skipped and the skip function is turned off, it will be normal color.

I have some problem again. Sometimes manual selection of track that should be skipped (because of keyword or rating mathing skipping query) requires doublecklicking on file even 10 times... But when I put such file in queue, then it is played OK. I use v 1.9 of foo_skip

Tracks are not "set to be skipped." Playback must engage on a track before foo_skip can determine if it should be skipped. The developer has designed the component so that you don't hear the split second blurb of each skipped track while the skip query is evaluated.

It's beyond the purpose (and probably the capability) of title formatting to query for the status of a component, at least as far as I've been able to determine.

Is anyone finding foo_skip behaving haphazardly lately? I haven't yet identified potential causes, but lately it seems tracks that would previously get skipped with criteria %last_played% DURING LAST 4 WEEKS now play. Sometimes it skips properly, sometimes it doesn't.

Well... I must say you are right haloeight. I haven't enough time to properly investigate it, all I can say is that for sure I found problem with manually selected files. I have some track on autoplaylist, that should be normally skipped. But this time I want to play it. I doubleclick it and foobar skips it. I doubleclick it once, two times three times... and sometimes it's enough and sometimes I need to make 10 tries. While sometimes it works properly at first time. Selecting files into queue works OK - I havem't situation when queued file was skipped. But I found situations when file that should be skipped, wasn't skipped at all. My plugins list haven't changed (maybe some of them were updated), my skipping patterns haven't changed (keywords + low rating) - only foobar was updated from 1.2.9 to 1.3.2 about 2 months ago...

Thanks...I also have been thinking the only change to my setup has been upgraded fb2k versions. I can't remember what exact version I started noticing this but it seems a relatively recent development (over the past 3-4 months).

I found some bugs which I fixed in version 1.9.1. Hopefully I got all the issues you have seen.

Been using this component for years. Became pretty indispensable.

I've got a request, don't know about feasibility though. I usually have 2 different Skip Track queries I use, depending on if I want to discover new stuff or if I want to listen to the best I have. Changing from one to the other is a pain. Would it be possible to implement multiple queries, and a drop down UI element to switch between queries (or just a checkbox to switch in the propreties)?

This might be too much work though, I have no idea. If there's an alternative, I'd like to know.

Thanks

I have no GUI experience and the documentation I found didn't help me in creating a WTL listview I wanted. I would have liked to make a dialog similar to Default UI's custom grouping scheme configuration where you define a short name and the string associated with it. Then one could quickly pick the wanted option from a named entry in main menu.
But since that is beyond my skills I had to settle for a compromise. In the new version configuration is now on its own page under main Preferences screen and query is implemented as a drop down list with history. It's still faster to change between values than with the old method. Entries can be removed from the right click context menu of the arrow icon.

Hey thanks a lot! Didn't expect a version so quick!

Just installed it. And I like the fact that it's in the Tools section, quickly accessible. On first impression, there's one thing: if the Skip track query is longer than the drop down dialog entry length, you can't scroll right to edit it. Might be a limitation in the drop down dialog itself though.

Sorry about that. Fixed version uploaded.

Sorry if I'm missing some documentation already available but how can I have tracks be skipped if I've recently skipped them (or do they count as recently played?). I have my playlist being played as Shuffle (tracks).

This component doesn't track manual skips. If some component keeps track of such behavior and exposes this info through titleformatting then you could utilize it. Though perhaps there's a workaround way if you have Playback Statistics installed. If you for example know that you have played all your good tracks in the last two weeks you could use skip query NOT %last_played% DURING LAST 2 WEEKS. Or if you know you don't have many plays for the tracks you want to skip you could use something like %play_count% LESS 5.

Aww... Well thanks for the reply.
I don't want to skip the tracks completely, I like listening to an old song every now and then but depends on my mood. Sometimes I skip a track halfway-through if I'm not in the mood and hence it doesn't count as a play.
I still do need to work out something to play songs that I rarely listen to less often and your suggestion gives me an idea, thanks!

Hi there. Is there anyway to store the BOOKMARK tag in custom database using foo_customdb instead of modifying the music source file? I've tried to create a custom field in foo_customdb but the tag is still written in the source.

Can somone explain me point by point how to make SKIP=-<time> work cuz when i simply set SKIP=-0:01:25 in Skip Track Query it doesnt work to any of the songs when i double click song or click play next song.
Just a short guide step by step how to make it work would be appreciate btw. all i care about is to be able to play all songs in playlist from the middle for example or at least from 1 minute.
THANKS

you don't put anything in the skip preferences.

you actually need to tag your files with a SKIP tag. right click your file(s) in a playlist and select Properties. now right click a blank area and select Add new field. in the Field name: section, type in SKIP. in Field value:, you can enter the time.

works thanks you are a BOSS

is there a way in foobar to add value to all of the songs, not one by one  ?

also i loved the idea to keep skip info not in tags but in separate file looking forward for it .

Hi, first of all, you did a great plugin man .
I don't know if someone had this problem before but if not I believe is relevant. foo_skip doesn't work properly if Crossfader is activated (actual version 1.3.5, and 1.1.9 too beacuse I tried first without update ).
foobar skips 1 rated songs at start if you had resume activated, with >| |< buttons, but not when is normaly playing (so, is almost useless when crossfader is on ).
Thank you again for do it.

This component seems to be living its own life
It isn't very often situation in general, but I think I should report it - so Developer could decide whether to search for problem or not. Honestly I don't feel this as an urgent problem.

What is going on?
I have set play mode to Shuffle (Tracks). It shuffled 5 "wrong" tracks in a row so while 5th was playing I decided to turn on skipping. After ca 1-2 seconds (my buffer is set to 1000ms) music just stopped. Cursor was going forward, but not VU Meter nor Peak Meter showed any animation. Track was played silently. Reproducibility - 100%. After turning skipping of - music got back after the same time 1-2 seconds (I think it is all about buffer length). Skipping was meant to be triggered via specific value in my own KEYWORDS tag (in this case word "skip"). However manual playing of any skipping query-matching track (doubleclick on playlist) or via Queue function works fine. Also skipping many tracks in a row works flawlessly. So all basic functions are OK.

Full skipping query:
%keywords% HAS flac OR %keywords% HAS skip OR %rating10% LESS 3 AND NOT %rating10% MISSING

Playback Rate Shift (mostly unused, but sometimes I play everything on +3%...)
Skip Track


I don't remember - should I use "Skip Track" DSP as lat or as first?
