Foobar now playing plugin

6060 Views 14 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  GSingh
Would someone recommend a foobar plug in that shows what song is currently playing when the track switches. I'm looking for something akin to the functionality that growl gives for itunes. Just a window that pops up and displays track info would be nice.

Your help is very much appreciated

Well, I just tried it and every time I start a song, foobar crashes. Any reason that might be? I'm using the latest non beta version btw.

Any particular song? or just anything?

And It should say the "now Playing" in the title bar lol.

I like this script for my title format "[%Artist% - ][%title% %length% | ][%codec% ][%bitrate% kbps] "

Do you use columns or the default user interface? Get columns if not and it already has a popup notification built in that you just have to turn on in preferences under: columns UI> notification area>Show popup notification balloons.

^I use CD Art Display and while it's not as simple as what you're looking for, it's really cool.
I use this awesome vinyl skin with it.

In Foo;

File > Preferences > Default User Interface > Check the "Show Balloon Tooltip on Song Change"

You then get a little pop-up near the windows clock telling you artist/title. If you mouse over the Foo icon down near the clock you also get a Artist/title display.

The balloons are ugly though. foo popuplus looks soo much better.
