How to share playback statistics/ratings across multiple foobars/compu 2012-08-16 02:17:51 Unlike all the other posts, and threads on this topic, I think I've actually solved the problem. I welcome additional testers and feedback though. Also, before you try this, install foo_jesus and make sure it's backing up index-data just so you've got a failsafe incase you do something incredibly bad (like accidentally deleting your playback statistics).Note: These instructions are for Windows machines. If you have foobar running in an emulator on a Mac, you'll have to figure out how to do this on your own.You're going to need install and setup a few things on each of the computers that you want to have access to your shared playback statistics on:1) Dropbox2) Link Shell Extension - Once this installs make sure you hit OK to restart explorer.exe.3) You need to be using at least foo_playcount 3 which almost everyone is nowadays, otherwise network shares might not work (since it was tied to file location).The process:1) Close foobar. This will save your playback statistics and is very necessary so that you don't lose data.2) Browse to your dropbox folder and create a folder inside it called foobar2000.3) Now go to your foobar configuration folder (hold down Shift when you click on the file menu and then select the "Browse Configuration Folder"). Select index-data, and paste a copy in the same directory so that you have a backup. This is for your own safety. Now select the index-data folder again, and cut it. 4) Go back to your dropbox folder and paste the index-data folder inside the foobar2000 folder.5) Wait for index-data to finish uploading to dropbox and you get the Green checkmark on it.6) Select the index-data folder and right click. Select the "Pick Link Source" item in the context menu (Link Shell Extension adds this).7) Go back to your configuration folder and right click in some white space (i.e. not on a filename). You should see the following menu: Select "Junction" and you should see a new index-data folder which initially has a shortcut icon. Windows won't actually remember to mark the folder as a shortcut in the future, but you can tell by going to the folder's properties where you'll see a new Link Properties tab that shows where the folder is actually located.At this point if you use foobar it will be writing to the index-data link which is actually stored on dropbox, and can therefore be shared easily.Now, go to every computer/user account that you want to share playback statistics with, install dropbox and LSE on them and rename the original index-data folder in your configuration and then repeat steps 6 and 7.Voila, shared playback statistics. Everything appears to be working great here although I've only been playing with it for about the last hour so if there are any issues I might not have encountered them yet.
