Xch4nge foobar2000 configuration for Windows Vista or Seven (aero required)

v1.0.4 uploaded on 2011-07-20 (bug fixing in QuickSearch)

.zip file contains all required files included installation notes (read it to know where to extract files for Standard or Portable foobar2000 installation) and video links, but required fonts are not included, see below for the link

Required dependencies:
foo_wave_seekbar component requires Ms Visual C++ 2010 SP1 32 bits > [link] 64 bits > [link]

Required Fonts (package of free fonts available here : [link])
    Segoe UI (included by default in windows Vista & Seven)
    Uni 05_53
    Digital
    Tahoma (included by default in all Windows version)
    Guifx v2 Transports

Playback Statistics:
Xchange include its own stats system and rating engin for taging your music file, but you can install foo_playcount component if you want to handle stats thru an external database (playcount and rating) ;)

Lyrics settings information:
My WSH Lyriks panel use Lyrics Show Panel v2 to grab automatically lyrics from the web. To edit the settings, display the Lyrics Show Panel window by using the menu entry: View->Lyrics Show Panel v2, then right click in the lyrics window and select Settings. Be careful, lyrics have to be stored in profile foobar folder .../foobar2000/lyrics or in ther music folder or in the TAG <UNSYNCED LYRICS> or <LYRICS>, otherwise, my wsh lyrics panels won't load anything!

I you like it, don't forget to support my work by giving a :+fav: and a comment (and why not a Llama badge too, i love them ^^), Thanx by advance!

Type anything in library search, like this "adgfjas" and press Enter, then you'll have a smart playlist named <#Search result>. Click the shape of lock icon in the left of that playlist, and a pop-up window will open, then you can edit or copy&paste there.
Now rename the playlist whatever you want.

Br3tt, just to confirm..
there's a problem with WSH Lyrics in foobar v. 1.3, when read from LYRICS tag, if you move seekbar, text disappear.. In my moded ver. this works almost ok, but also not refreshing text instantly. Can you fix this?

i'm not using Xch4nge anymore for a long time now, but i recently working on a new version compatible with latest WSH panel mod (official one) v1.5.6. it works fine, but i've to refresh many things before to release it, including lyrics show panel use ;)

Ohhh wow any news on this? I'm a fan of yours from the day you published Curacao (Im going to spend holiday there soon!!) to Xchange! An Update with Lyric panel would be great -  right now I managed to somehow update Panel2 to panel 2 in this skin but would prefer an official update :)

I'm also trying to make Lyric show 3 work but haven't had any success yet. Br3tt, any plans for a component update? (considering Lyric Show 2 was set from inside the code).

Hi Br3tt, please help. I've just installed this on my windows 8 tablet with my own configuration. However, some items do not appear correctly such as the up/down arrows missing (now showing as W & S) on upper top right & the bottom bar where the back/play/pause/forward/stop/heart/stop sign/star ratings/shuffle/repeat all showing weird symbols & numbers. If I've rated the song, the symbol shows as "b b b b b". I've attached a screen capture & circled for your reference.

Hello,

I have to say that I really like this skin.  It is the best one for foobar in my opinion and I really like the customization.  However, I was wondering how you change the visualizer to the one that you have in the screenshot?  Mine is different than that one and I would prefer to have the visualizer that you are showing if I can. 

Thanks!

Also, I get an error when I try to fullscreen the visualizer.  It isn't a huge deal, but if you would happen to know how to fix it I would be very grateful.

hva you read the changelog about v1.3 and so what v1.3 bring as changes around the handle of tags ? you should ;) be cause according to me, the tag %lyrics%, %lyric%, ... are no more chached in media library as before, if you want them, you have to declare them in a file parameter now or a setting page (not checked yet because no need until your post)

HTH

I don't know what is exactly problem here , i install foobar v1.3 beta 7 today, and xch4nge in portable mode, i don't have any problems, at all. Script show lyrics if they in folder or if they tagged with LYRICS or UNSYNCED LYRICS...
I use Lyric show panel 0.4 beta..

Br3tt, i agree with Valkyrozen, if you have time, it would be good to update xch4nge, this is the best skin that exists.

One question, is possible to update xch4nge to use new WSH 1.5.6, i know that this WSH you use is specific?
But every time when i want to use some new script made for wsh 1.5.6, i must to modify them..

Anyway.. Thanks for all your hard work, much appreciate ..

Hi !
Thanks for this amazing skin.
Is there a way to tag .tta files with your rating star system?
Reply
:iconbr3tt:
Br3tt Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
my rating system don't care about the file type, your .tta just need to support TAG and to be supported by foobar2000 core, nothing to do with my system.

:iconadrenaline67:
Adrenaline67 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2013
Tiens au passage, je viens de voir que t'es français :p
En fait j'ai trouvé, il faut que je splitte les fichiers .tta pour les taguer.
Si je dis pas n'imp, quand les fichiers ne sont pas splittés foobar utilise le .cue à la place et c'est pour ça qu'on ne peut pas taguer, non? C'est peut-être même une évidence mais je m'y connais pas trop lol
Tu sais s'il existe un moyen de les taguer quand même? Le truc c'est que j'ai énormément de .tta comme ça et ça prendrai des journées entières à tout splitter :/

:iconbr3tt:
Br3tt Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
j'y connais rien en fichier .tta, je ne peux donc pas aider sur ce coup là. perso, je préfère le flac pour des fichiers lossless et au moins c'est taggable, mais ton problème est un gros stock de .tta, donc à part un .cue ou "splitter" (c'est à dire ?) je vois pas de solution à mon niveau.

:iconadrenaline67:
Adrenaline67 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013
Oui, j'avais dl les fichiers en .tta c'était le seul format lossless dispo. En fait ce sont de gros fichiers .tta de 300-400Mo où tout l'album est codé en un seul fichier.
Il faut que je les "split" pour séparer toutes les pistes de l'album en fichiers indépendants, avec cuetools par exemple. Ca existe aussi avec les FLAC ce genre de fichiers.
Merci quand même pour l'aide, je vais voir si je peux trouver un moyen de splitter des fichiers en masse.
Et puisque t'aimes les lamas, encore une fois :

Hi ;)

Thx for this awesome config/skin, but I need some help :D

There is the way to setup biography server (last.fm) for downloading album (cover img) to current song ?? I can setup last.fm to downloading to folder with album covers, but I don't know how to setup ElPlaylist and ELPlaylist for showing album images of current album...

I know that Biography Server plugin have option to provide artwork, but it isn't fluid ....

Brilliant theme to be honest. However it is not as flexible as we might think. I found the whole package very hard to use, any changes made could be fatal. Basically, if you don't know how to code, well you're pretty stuck with few settings that works weirdly. It lacks of user friendly manipulations. For example, I lack the simplicity of Album List, now replaced by ELplaylist, which is a beautiful piece of work, but I can't get anything out of it. Result: something which is supposed to offer more flexibility does actually the opposite.
It's shame that the updates has been stopped on it, because I think it is bar the best theme for foobar.

FYI, Album List is a libray explorer, ELPlaylist is just a playlist viewer, not the same usage at all.

Hello, I still got a problem with the lyrics, I installed the newer component manually through foobar by hitting "Install" button in "Components" In Preferences window and deleted the older one, it still doesn't work. For some songs, I can manually open the lyric V3 panel, then save the lyrics, and refresh the lyrics in the integrated lyrics panel, and it works. For others it doesn't work, I can only see the lyrics in non integrated panel.
Anyone can help me please ? Thanks a lot !

Hi,

Congratulations for your work, it's wonderful !

So, can you help me for this Xch4nge theme, I don't know why but the waveform seekbar is always fully transparency. I tried to configure background color or splitter settings but nothing works.

Thank you very much
