Foobar2000 Customization Topic

8,234 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

For those who dont know, foobar is an audio player made for best performance using less resources as possible, not too long ago 1 month aprox i switched to it and its really amazing, tho it leaks of customization, you can skin it with some plug ins but loses the performace, now i made this topic so we all can share our foobar2k styles or playlist customizations here is mine

Pm me if you want the code for playlist, its a bit long :)

People dont PM me for this configs, i dont have them anymore...

After being a loyal Winamp user for many years, I decided to try foobar. So far so good, I like mine to look really simple and minimal. :D

$if2(%artist%,unknown artist)

Download Column UI, extract the contents of the zip file into your foobar/components directory.

Download Azrael config from this page. Extract the file into your folder of choice, preferably the foobar folder. For more Azrael color config go to Azrael documentation page.

Run foobar, go to its preferences, and select ColumnsUI as the "User Interface Module" under the "Display" section in the options window. Restart foobar.

Go to preferences > Display > ColumnsUI" subsection, select "import" from that screen and import Azrael.

Once that is imported change the playlist and statusbar fonts found on the same screen (Display -> ColumnsUI). Set them to Lucida Grande Unicode.

For custom button, get it from here. Change it in Display -> ColumnsUI > select "Use custom buttons".

I can never get people's foobar code to work in mine for some reason, it sucks.

How do I get playlist tabs on the left instead of top?

Is there a way to make it so that when it's going to the next song it fades in and out instead of stopping nd starting?

Sure, I believe the crossfading plugin comes with the special edition of Foobar.

Hi guys,

First of all go download ColumnsUI.

Once you do that extract the contents of the zip file into your foobar/components directory.

Next get the Eriks.fcs config file for ColumnsUI (in file attached to this post).

Extract the file into your folder of choice, preferably the foobar folder.

Now you can run foobar, go to its preferences, and select ColumnsUI as the "User Interface Module" under the "Display" section in the options window.

Restart foobar; now the ColumnsUI should be active. Go to preferences again, from the "Display" section go to the "ColumnsUI" subsection, and select "import" from that screen. Here you will find the Eriks.fcs file you downloaded earlier. Once that is imported change the playlist and statusbar fonts found on the same screen (Display -> ColumnsUI that is).

The buttons are those allready mentioned (you can get it here).

But I've changed them a bit to match better my WB skin (if you wish I can send them to you by mail).

The frame around is from my WB own theme (that is a compilation of different schemes, just used for my own purposes, as I can not publish it, cause it is others job and credits).

For other details - visit these threads: "First one", "Second one" and the others having foobar ColumnsUI in subject.

In case of problems - just PM me.

to jack_canadian:

you lazy guy :) , just becouse you have similiar name ;) - check your e-mail for my foobar folder contents..
