I can’t live without foo_uie_queuemanager!

This post is essentially a big “FUCK YOU” to all the foobar2000 devs for their decision to kill off support plugins written before June 2007 in foobar 0.9.6.x. Moving from 0.9.5.x to 0.9.6.x is actually worse than moving from Windows XP to Vista for me. At least I only had to relearn where stuff was in Vista, but for foobar? Those features aren’t available anymore!

So yes, if anyone related to foobar dev is reading this, please include “Stop after playback queue” and “Stop in… xxx minutes” for the next version of foobar. In the mean time, I’ll stick to the “supposedly” less stable with it’s equally “unstable” plugins. If someone wants to recompile foo_uie_queuemanager or foo_timebomb to 0.9.6.x-compatible versions for me, I will be eternally grateful too (can’t offer you my first born though, already promised it to someone else).

    Oh i totally feel for you there, until about a month ago i was still using because of the plugin issue… but then i tried out their new build and i must say, i love how easy to use their new default ui component is

    classic feature completeness (monolithic) vs simpleness (modular) problem :/

    add feature and it’ll be bloated one day
    keep it modular and external modules might break anytime

    They updated the SDK. If you want it so badly do it yourself.

    Maybe you might wanna try out foo_scheduler? It doesn’t have anything related to playback queues, but it can do “Stop in… xxx minutes” just fine.
