Be sure foobar is not running then extract content of the .zip archive in your foobar200 profile folder (configuration folder + sqlite3.exe) >> if portable installation done , it's the same folder as the foobar2000 program folder, for example "D:\Portable Software\foobar2000\" >> if standard installation done , for windows Seven, it's here => "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\", for windows XP it's here => "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\foobar2000\"
When done, Run foobar
If prompted (only for fresh install), select ColumnsUI as default interface
On the Spotifoo splash screen, click the red "click" button to complete the installation
In order to use last.fm integration, you have to set: >> your last.fm username and password in the settings of foo_softplaylist and foo_audioscrobbler (foobar Preferences->Tools ...) >> your last.fm username and api key by clicking the last.fm button of the config (near the loved button)
Detailled Installation Note (for newbies):
Install required fonts if missing on your windows system
Make a fresh install of foobar2000 v1.1.1 minimum
Install all the required components => check foobar2000 documentation if you don't know how to install a component! (since v1.1, install is done under foobar / Preferences / Components with Install button)
Be sure foobar is not running then extract content of the .zip archive in your foobar200 profile folder (configuration folder + sqlite3.exe) >> if portable installation done , it's the same folder as the foobar2000 program folder, for example "D:\Portable Software\foobar2000\") >> if standard installation done , for windows Seven, it's here => "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\", for windows XP it's here => "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\foobar2000\"
When done, Run foobar
When prompted, select ColumnsUI as default interface
On the Spotifoo splash screen, if controls are OK (fonts and components check) click the red "click" button to complete the installation
In order to use last.fm integration, you'll have to set: >> your last.fm username and password in the settings of foo_softplaylist and foo_audioscrobbler (foobar Preferences->Tools ...) >> your last.fm username and api key by clicking the last.fm button of the config (near the loved button)
Don't forget to configure your Library, hide the default CUI Toolbar if still visible on top ... and have good time with my config and mostly with your music!
To enable last.fm (last.fm loved track binded with heart button and displayed in playlist + playcount in playlist replaced by the playcount from last.fm) ==> click the last.fm button then select 'Enable last.fm ...'
Last.fm feature (loved track + playcount) when last.fm is enabled, are stored locally in customdb as specific TAG (local TAG for love and playcount are not replaced !!! no sync in tags at all)
You need to set your last.fm username and API key by clicking the last.fm button.
You need to set your last.fm username and password in the settings of the components : foo_softplaylists and foo_audioscrobbler
If after that, it doesn't work, try Spotifoo on a fresh portable install of foobar, there must be a bad setting somewhere in your actual config already present before installing the latest Spotifoo version, and set all settings as it should be (up!)
Lyrics panel information
- It's a WSH script that gets lyrics from TAG first then from local file in Music folder then in foobar2000\lyrics\ and it displays them (scrolling+sync) - It handles TXT and LRC format (sync handled), but not the LRC Enhanced format (translated to simple LRC format) - exotics timestamps are now handled (like [9:99], [99:99.999], [9:99.999], [99:99:999] ...) - filenames supported are : <%artist%> -<%title%>.lrc (or .txt) AND <%artist%> - <%title%>.lrc (or .txt) - Comments, Blank lines (no timestamp) and Info lines (ar:, ti, ...) are ignored. - Manual Scrolling possible with the mousewheel (double click on the panel to re-center on the active line) - Optional requirements : => a lyrics grabber component (i.e: Lyric Show Panel (by hidding the panel, just a PSS setting), foo_lyricsDB 2, ...)
I love this skin with a passion. Since I stumbled upon it a few years ago, no other media player, and no other skin for foobar2000 has persuaded me to switch.
Recently I was running onto "Automation server can't create object" errors that I couldn't resolve. Unticking "Safe Mode" in WSH Panel Mod's options didn't help, changing security settings in Internet Options didn't help, but I finally came across a solution and got my favorite player and skin back. I wrote a detailed solution on my blog: [link]
Ya I just switched from Winamp about 2 weeks ago, I've tried foobar before but didn't like it for whatever reason. Well I like it now and like this guys skins. Itunes is a POS media player in the best of installations on windows machines, I almost feel its intentional on Apple's part.
