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!

how do I change the background wallpaper and text colour ?

pretendtopray's avatar

go to the 'foobar2000\skins\xc4\images' folder, you can see 'wallpaper.jpg' then you can add desired file and rename it to 'wallpaer.jpg'.

Or, you can add an album cover image or artist image to your each album folder and rename it to 'artist.jpg', then it will be your backgrond wallpaper.

go to Menu-File-Preferences>Display>Columns UI>Colours and Fonts,

You can change text color on it.

How to make this recognize "foo_uie_lyrics3" ? I get "no lyrics found" for all songs...
pretendtopray's avatar

Menu-File-Preferences-Columns UI, and right side of the window,

[Layout]

You can see "Panel Stack Splitter"s in row, go to the end of the one that does not have any sub item.

You can see

">Panel Stack Splitter

WSH Panel Mod

>Panel Stack Splitter

ELPlaylist

.

.

>Panel Stack Splitter"

and click the right mouse button on the empty "Panel Stack Splitter"

then "Insert Panel-Panels-Lyric Show 3"

Yes, enjoy your xch4nge!

Is it possible to group playlists or use Playlist Organizer component? Without grouping I will have a super long list of playlists..

how to enable copy-paste in library search? help pls..
pretendtopray's avatar
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 :)
