Changelog:
:: All updated components as of 20 June 2010.
:: Additional clickable preferences icon.


What is the difference between MonoLiteMod and MonoLiteMod-Slim
:: Squeeze up the size but still packed with extra features.
:: Rating icons changed.
:: Stop button included.
:: Playback order replaces statusbar on the hidden bottom edge button.
:: Last.fm API intergration. (only for monolitemodslim_lastfm.fcl)
:: Clicking top right edge hidden button which toggle the scroller, will also auto switch the tab to Playlist tab, instead of non-effect when highlighted to other tabs.
:: Ditch Library tab and replace with an icon, which able to view along with Playlist con-currently.
:: A click to db magnifier icon will leads to playlist SHOW NOW PLAYING song.

Requirement:
:: foobar2000 [link]
:: Fonts: Frutiger Linotype | Swis721 Cn BT D-Type | Droid Sans

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:
:: disable toolbars (click top left edge button) and status bar.
:: hide playlist scroller on playlist window (click top right edge button)
:: keep height aspect to 6 rows of group header. (optimized for Info tab)

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.
:: Volume setting can be toggled via bottom left edge button.
:: 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.

so foobar is like a wmp replacement?
JJwzhao's avatar

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.

The volume and playlist panels just say "crashed" for me. Any suggestions?

What is ColumnsUI?

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 :)

Thanks for this awesome foobar skin! I enjoy the minimalistic aspect of it! I hope you will come up with updates which will make it better looking and simpler too. Thanks!

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.
Pengspawnie's avatar
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?
Pengspawnie's avatar
AFAIK, the heart will take about 5-15 second to become red once you had clicked it.
viktordrago's avatar
Reinstall solved the problem, sorry.
viktordrago's avatar
Sorry for double posting, I want to share with you more information about this issue.

When I play a track console says:
Audioscrobbler: Submitting track...
Opening track for playback: "xxx"
Audioscrobbler: Submission succeeded.
Playcount sync: Contacting Last.fm....
Status: OK
Playcount sync: Updating LASTFM_PLAYCOUNT 22 > 23
Playcount sync: Not updating LASTFM_LOVED. No changes found.
Reopening played file after update: "xxx"

When I try to love a track it says:
Playcount sync: Contacting Last.fm....
Status: OK
Playcount sync: Not updating LASTFM_PLAYCOUNT. No changes found.
Playcount sync: Not updating LASTFM_LOVED. No changes found.
