Requirement:
:: foobar2000 [link]

Setup:
:: make a backup for component folder inside foobar folder.
:: extract mesia.7z archive in the default foobar2000 folder.
:: run foobar with ColumnsUI as interface
:: go to preferences -> ColumnsUI -> Main -> use Import Button to import the monolitemodslim.fcl (or monolitemodslim_lastfm.fcl for intergrating data with lastfm) file, apply all imported layout.

Better view when:

Additional info:
:: In order to make sure library directory is working, go to menu -> file -> preferences (or simply ctrl+p) -> media library ->add music folders.

:: Playback order icons can be toggled via bottom right edge button.
:: Playlist scroller can be toggled via top right edge button.
:: Single track playlist can be done by adding "SINGLETRACK" with value "1".
:: In order to intergrate last.fm data into your foobar, 2 things you need to do after you have selected monolitemodslim_lastfm.fcl as your theme:
1. Go to preferences -> Tools -> Soft Playlists -> Type your Last.fm User ID and Password.
2. Right click EXCLAMATION/LOVE icon -> Configure -> insert your username and api_key. Your api_key can be obtained here. [link]
3. You may encounter "Scripting Engine Initialization Failed" error. Workaround of this problem is got to Preferences -> Tools -> WSH preferences -> untick 'Safe Mode' option.

it's really a good foobar skin, i like it.

but it looks the tab lyrics can be integrated into the tab info. spaces below 5 stars rating, if there is the lyrics available, display there, if not, just leave it.

Download this and put the .dll file inside your foobar2000/component folder and then restart your foobar2000.
When you start it go to preferences > Display > Select Columns UI in the "User interface module" tab to the right. Press yes when it says it has to restart your foobar2000. Done :)

The info panel rating isn't working with the new playback statistics component (unless I have to write the ratings int the files. Also the lyrics panel is outdated; development was picked up again in a component.

Lovin' this for my foobar!!

I miss the expand/collapse buttons though for the album list


Would like to know how to remove the Lyrics and Bio tabs though since I dont use them. The components can be removed arbitrarily enough but I'm a blonde when it comes to removing the tabs.

:iconpengspawnie:
Pengspawnie Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010
Thanks!
which one you prefer to remove the tab? either with or without last.fm intergration? due to maintain its compactness, so i pass on putting the expand/collapse buttons. :)

I'm using the config without the last.fm integration. In the interest of keeping it really compact and slim, just wanna know how to remove these two tabs I don't use: [link]

If it's not possible its all good. Thanks again for the theme.

hello, great skin, thx a lot :)

I have some problems, I would like to solve them:
1. flashing scrolling when changing songs / Playlist / Playlist changes / .. very uncomfortable
2. after the restart foobar2000 or transition to another Playlist all albums are deployed :(
3. I put foo_playcount.dll for recording statistics in PlaybackStatistics.dat, but the rating continues to be written in the tags of audio files.
4. yet sometimes the length of tracks is cut off, but sometimes it is normal .. the length is cut off if if the open right library & playlists :(

thanks in advance :)

My last.fm heart doesn't fully work.

My foobar instalation is clean and I use only your skin/plugins. I've entered username and password in Soft Playlist. Also, I've configured "heart icon" with API and username.

As far as I can see, my foobar receives last.fm data (number of plays, heart is red if track is already 'loved'). But if I click on heart it does nothing :(

User data and API is correct (obviously)... Can you test it on your side, please?

:iconpengspawnie:
Pengspawnie Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2010
AFAIK, the heart will take about 5-15 second to become red once you had clicked it.

Hi dude. Your skin really is awesome.

There is something I would like to do but I'm a foobar noob. I would like to use foo_uie_lyrics2.dll instead of foo_uie_lyrics.dll but I have no idea how to do that. Could you help me ? Is there an easy way to do that by modifying something in your config ?

Thanks in advance.

you may need to change playlist font which recognize korean font, just go to definition field tab under playlist settings and amend _font1_ and _font2_ fonts.

"Scripting Engine Initialization Failed (GUID: FBC983BC-AF6C-4C77-9C56-79BB21793256, CODE: 0x8000ffff)
Check the console for more detailed information."

And heres what the consoles says:

I love it. Thanks for the UI.

I have only a very little problem. If the playlist screen is not full a little part of the right playlist edge doesn't appears (the track duration and the the number of tracks in a album are cut)
Playlist screen not full (right edge appears cut): [link]
Playlist screen Full (right edge appears OK): [link]

the length of songs and number of counting will misaligned if you not fully utilize the playlist (in your case, probably your plalylist just list out a few songs instead of scroll-able playlist)

OK, I've got it all setup and it's working fine and beautiful. However, there's only one problem. You see there's this tab for Bio right. I cannot scroll down to continue reading the whole biography. Any idea how to do that?

Oh, thats hidden.
You can show it up by right-click the readings -> panel preference...-> set scrollbar to Default.

That is fixed. I got one last problem:

Everytime I close Foobar and when I open it the next time the Playlist page doesn't have the scroller. I have to click on the top-right to enable it everytime. Do I have to enable the scroller everytime I open Foobar? Also every time I close it, when it opens the next time, in the Playlist tab it shows all the tracks in all the albums so it is really long. I then have to manually click on the albums to show only the albums in each of them so it is arranged to 6 rows. Is there any way I can save the settings for both of them?

:iconpengspawnie:
Pengspawnie Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010
There is collapse/expand option when you right click your mouse.
The way i see why your play list took very long time to show is because you are not set you library directory in preferences menu->library.
Please do explore foobar 1st before further with your questions

OK, that is solved. I had to right-click, go to Settings and then set that. But I still have one last problem left.

Every time I close Foobar, the Playlist scroller disappears as well as the volume. I have to click on the top-right and bottom-left for volume to enable them again.

I don't understand what this means:

keep height aspect to 6 rows of group header. (optimized for Info tab)

Can you explain me?

Also since this has no library tab, it means everything goes in Playlist tab right?

I think the FLAC, MP3 and other icons can be found in the Foobar icon folder, can you please add it? Should not take long. Please I beg you. Just one thing I ask, just add the icon something like this:

Hi,
1.try to minimize your foobar height to see 6 rows of groups.
2. yes, it doesn't have library tab, but i did mentioned in comment, the library tab has been replace with orange color folder icon.
3.for file extension icons, i need at least the reference of the coding before i can proceed.i do not have sufficient knowledge of coding to ensure this won't take long. :)

cheers

1.) You mean 6 rows of albums in Playlist or what?

By the way, if I play a song with this skin, will it alter or change the ID3v2.3 tags in any way? Because I don't want my songs to be touched or altered or changed. I want them to be like they are.

Pengspawnie Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2010
1. Collapse the group, and arrange your windows height according to the size of 6 rows of group row, u know what i mean?
2. Use monolitemodslim.fcl instead of monolitemodslim_lastfm.fcl to avoid your file tags getting altered.

1.) I'm a n00b on Foobar so I don't understand. Can you explain me step-by-step?
2.) So if I use the one without lastfm, you're sure I won't have any tags altered and they'll stay exactly like they are right?

Thanks.
