Foobar2000 Player skin with album art

Skin for rainmeter, should work on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

READ THE README.TXT FOR INSTALLATION


On mouse-over, current track time and volume control will be displayed. Also, the album art is larger than the original skin. You can still choose either to display art or not.

I followed the instructions on the readme.txt, but no new skin was added to Rainmeter. I don't know what I missed, shouldn't there be a .rmskin-packet at one point? Thanks for any advice in advance.

Try my All in one Player maxvanijsselmuiden.deviantart.… , it is an .rmskin package which also supports foobar2000. Goodluck!

Where can I download it?

On the right of this page you can see a link 'Download File'. Just click on that. It should work. Yep.

Hi again, do you maybe have an idea why this happens: [link] Sometimes the album art just says "no album art" with a white/transparant background, and the song name isn't shown either. Then songs that used to work also don't get any info displayed.

Do you know how to fix this?

Sorry for the late reply, but have you tried my new skin? It uses a new method for foobar2000 which is more reliable: [link]

maxvanijsselmuidenStudent Interface Designer
Well yeah the method used in this skin isn't that reliable. BUT, I'm working on a new all-in-one player for rainmeter which will (hopefully) no longer have these problems. If you please could wait some time, it will be worth it.

Where do the album cover pics have to be stored to get picked up?
I download music, open with iTunes, add album cover in iTunes (either manually or via their automatic service). Foobar2000 picks up on those, but not all of the album pics are send to 127.0.0.1

Anyone?

Damn I really wish you could delete posts...

Worked absolutely fine for me (because I followed your Readme to the "T" lol) Thanks for the great player!
lepurkanking's avatar
Thanks for the great player! No problems for me at all!

Cool. Thank youu !

This is great, but the name of the song and album doesn't change unless I refresh the skin. Any idea as to why?
maxvanijsselmuiden's avatar
maxvanijsselmuidenStudent Interface Designer
Hmm, it should be working fine. Did you check if there's any updaterate=1 or updatedivider=1 in the .ini file?
Neteru's avatar
That was the problem, the update rate was set to 60000. Thank you very much! :)

i did everything the read me said and when i try to load up the skin with rainmeter nothing happens. literally, i go to configs and select the skin and it doesn't even load. what is wrong?
maxvanijsselmuiden's avatar
maxvanijsselmuidenStudent Interface Designer
Hmm, i think the problem is, that it does load, but it won't display, because the skin 'thinks' foobar2000 isn't running. Try restarting pc, see if it works. Otherwise try redoing all the steps :)

I had install it in win xp and I couldn't find out any Roaming folder in Documents and Settings. I also created Roaming folder in both 'All User' and My user name folder but it's not as desired.how can i do now?
maxvanijsselmuiden's avatar
maxvanijsselmuidenStudent Interface Designer
You'll have to make sure to enable 'display hidden files and folders', Google that if you don't know how to do that. Then you'll must be able to find the roaming folder in the application data folder, which should be in your documents and settings/username folder.
vietthang911's avatar
Thank you. I have solved it. In fact, there aren't no folder roaming folder in my PC. It not work because i missed foo_httpcontrol.dll in Foobar Profile Folder (C:\Documents and Settings\#yourusername#\Application Data\foobar2000). Maybe it's depend on each PC :D
