Show Your Music Player!

Recommended Posts

For my laptop and Desktop I've been using MusicBee a lot lately as it has many features I want right out of the box and doesn't require much in the way of skinning to make it aesthetically pleasing. I've configured one of my tabs to do a "Downloads Search" by mapping the "sort artist" ID3 tag to a URL search string (I put romaji band names in that field for easy library lookup, same for the sort album and sort title tags, they're very seldom used by anyone I know but oh so useful)

For the HTPC I use XBMC

So I finally decided to switch from JAM to something new on my Desktop... Don't get me wrong I love JAM, but I felt that I wanted something a little more flexible on my desktop. I still have JAM installed on my laptop though, it's the perfect skin for laptops.

Pretty satisfied so far with this skin, I still want to tweak some things, but for now it's pretty good :D

^ What's the name and/or link to that one?  I dig it.  Does it come with install instructions?  Last time I tried to install a skin to my foobar, I got messed up because there was no .txt or .pdf or w/e.

It's this one right here; http://rikitiki11.deviantart.com/art/One-of-those-foobar-Metro-1-9-2-364177682

yeah it's a pretty nice skin with a lot of options, if you need any help setting it up you can always ask me, I'd be glad to help out. Although this one isn't very complicated, just drag and drop a few folders, activate Columns UI and then configure a few more standard settings in the player like media library and all that.

I've decided to start using foobar2000 as a secondary media player for the metal which I listen to. I have held back on downloading a lot of releases because I didn't want to add any of it to my iTunes because it would've become too cluttered, and it's already slow with the hundreds of Visual Kei releases I have in there.

So I finally managed to install a decent-looking skin and I am fairly pleased with it. I would like to see a separate list of all artists so as to increase browsing but I can't exactly seem to figure out how. I tried to install one that looked like iTunes but unfortunately it crashed the client.

Currently using Eole as my Foobar2000 skin on my good laptop that only has the visual kei and '80s - mid '90s Japanese rock releases I ripped personally.  My shit laptop uses iTunes and has all of my ABBA, '60s - mid '90s Western rock rips/downloads + all of my Kpop & Hello! Project downloads.
