WSH Playlist 2013 v0.0.8

Finally my new WSH playlist viewer script for the foobar2000 component "WSH Panel Mod" (version v1.5.6)

* Groups (collpase or expand them, add extra lines)
* Arrange columns as you want
* Playlist Header at Top (can be disabled)
* Wallpaper as background supported with (option) with no loose of reactivity or %cpu increase (or really minor)
* ... and more

* foobar2000 v1.1 or better >> [link]
* WSH panel Mod v1.5.6 or better >> [link]
* Font guifx v2 transports >> [link]
this font is required to get nice stars for the rating columns, but if not installed, it will works with standard star (*) character

* disable "Safe Mode" option in WSH Panel Mod preferences (menu File>Preferences>Tools>WSH Panel Mod)
* copy "wsh_br3tt" folder into your foobar2000 Profile folder
* import/paste this script into a WSH Panel Mod instance of your foobar2000 layout (DUI or CUI)
Important: for any update of my scripts, replace the whole folder "wsh_br3tt" each time!

* Use Jscript9 engine (if supported by your system) for better performances (known issue: high %cpu on mouse move with Windows 8 versions, prefer Jscript engine)
* change colors and fonts in foobar2000 Preferences > DefaultUI or ColumsUI
* Some Settings can be changed in window Properties (right click on a playlist item > Settings...)
* double click on toolbar > Show Now Playing item
* use Keyboard for searching artist in the playlist (incremental search feature like in ELPlaylist)
* Right Click > Settings to chang some extra properties !!

Hi Br3tt,

I'd like the double click to automatically start playing the selected playlist, preferably at the place where I left off the last time I opened that playlist. I listen to audiobooks a lot and remembering the position and the track I last played is really important for me.

Thank you for the help!
Thank you for the help Br3tt. I've used your JSPlaylist script as you suggested and it works like a charm! The interface is both beautiful and intuitive, I really enjoy it.
One minor thing that I'd like if I could change is that the playlist starts playing when I double-click it in the playlist viewer. I'd also like if there wasn't  X button for deleting the playlist in the playlist viewer so I do not accidentally delete one of my playlist when switching between them.

What do you want it does on double clicking a track ?

I've followed the instruction but I don't know how to import the stuff you provided into the WSH plugin. I've done as instructed:
 * disable "Safe Mode" option in WSH Panel Mod preferences (menu File>Preferences>Tools>WSH Panel Mod)
* copy "wsh_br3tt" folder into your foobar2000 Profile folder
* import/paste this script into a WSH Panel Mod instance of your foobar2000 layout (DUI or CUI)

I'm not sure what I should import into the WSH Panel Mod? When I click Import  I'm asked for a .cfg file which is not supplied in the .zip file I've downloaded. Can you help me with this please?

this playlist script is out to date, prefer JSPlaylist script, it replace this one the bugs less :)

for installing a wsh script this video should help newbies like you :…
It's Great WSH playlist I like it
but I often used "Add Playback queue"
in columns playlist
Playlist view-columns-Scripts-Display
How can do it in
this WSH playlist?
sorry I'm a beginner thankyou
Br3tt's avatar
Not possible in this version... Maybe in my next version that should be out soon...Btw, you can see the queue content as a playlist, just right click on the columns header and select the feature.
queue content playlist is one idea
but maybe I do not use it very much
but someone need it thankyou
please add custom wallpaper path with different artist like C:\foobackground\%artist% - %album%.bmp. Thanks. I love this playlist so much!

Hey Br3tt,
I really love the way this playlist looks but I have one question. Is it possible to add middle mouse click actions, like send to a queue playlist? That's the one thing I really need as a function and I'm not sure if it's possible to do easily.

Right-Click > Add to playback queue, does the job as well, why asking for another way which the facility is to debate imho.
Do you know of anyway to do what I said using a WSH Panel? Could I code it? I forgot to mention that one other thing I really like is that when it gets added to the queue, the '#' column changes to whatever position in the queue the song is.
By the way, I hope you don't take this as an insult, I don't mean to give the impression that this "isn't good enough" or something. I added the feature myself to vanilla foobar2000 and I just really like it a lot.
I love this playlist! I want to know how to change scroll steps too! (default is 4)
I registered here to say I use your script which works fine. Thank you (Merci).
If you could add the possibility to rename playlist, it would be perfect.
CoverFlow is already perfect :)
I can't get this too work :/ 
So i pasted to folder "wsh_br3tt" at C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000

But then i don't know where to paste the scipts :/
Br3tt's avatar
look at this, that should help you to understand where to paste it...
In the video there was only 1 script, and i dont seem to have that script, how can i get it?
Br3tt's avatar
the script to past in WSH pane mod is the one (playlist.txt) stored in wsh_br3tt\panels
Omg thank you so much! Sorry Im new to the skins stuff thats why,  but thanks it works like a charm :)
