HTPC Fullscreen panels for foobar2000
This page comprises configuration scripts for WSH Panel Mod (foo_uie_wsh_panel_mod), a scriptable UI element for the audio player foobar2000. I use them on my living room computer to display what I’m listening to. Installation instructions are on the bottom of this page.
This panel can be used for fullscreen panels and tiny (horizontal) spaces. It shows albumart or pictures from the audio file’s directory. Progress bar acts as a clickable seekbar, albumart is a huge pause button. In fullscreen layout, double-clicking on the right/left edges moves to next/previous track. In small horizontal layout, contents of tag grid table are displayed one after another in line three of the panel. New since version 0.4: basic theme support and compatible with WSH Panel Mod 1.5 versions.
This configuration is inspired by Windows Media Player. A simple background image behind large album art.
Version: WSHtpc03 v0.5.1
If you have artist art, take this one.
Version: WSHtpc02 v0.3
My learning script, through which I learnt to migrate from good old foo_trackinfo_mod to foo_wsh_panel_mod.
Version: WSHtpc01 v0.3
