Here's a portable installation with my theme: http://www.mediafire.com/download/1a7h45w6x0d7zl8/foobar2000.rar
 

If you want to view your library by folder structure and your music is stored in C:\Path\To\Music\ you can get rid of the root nodes so you don't need to expand C:, Path:, To: and Music: in the Album List panel. I put an instruction text file for that in the folder.

 

Oh and Ctrl+P to access the Preferences to set up your Library.

This is my simple layout.
  • Default UI
  • Facets
  • Simplaylist

My setup is heavily based on the one Logan from TekSyndicate showed in his video, with a few colour changes and a little bit of resiing for my smaller screen resolution.

Thanks to everyone on this thread who mentioned DarkOne. I'm now running V4 and I'm finally happy with Foobar2k.

 

:):cool:

post #367 of 379

Thanks to this amazing thread I came to know of wonders of foobar and have managed to make some themes/skin work and is enjoying it.

 

I am using DarkOne  v4 from http://tedgo.deviantart.com/art/DarkOne-v4-360862076 and it works.Is there a possibility to move the central album picture/album art to be smaller and if possible to switch it to the left where the library is?In older versions clicking a small button above the album art could do it.I cannot find this in the new 4 version.Is it also possible to include the shpeck verycolorful spectrumto this version?

I have re-installed foobar about 20 times messing up and fixing it,so not a complicated method would be appreciated.

You don't need to re-install it. in the preferences just use the reset all or reset page buttons. as for added or removing panels just mess around with the columns UI panel in the preferences, that's how the layout its created its a bit of a learning curve to figure out the splitters and orientation. but once you figure it out you can customize the whole layout.

The learning curve is indeed very steep! Everytime i change something its messed and have to reinstall again.

i overcame the learning curve thou it took me 3 weeks of playing with it for about 4 hrs a night and made myself this layout as for add-on's i run shpeck, lyric panel 3, peak meter and vumeter learning how to set the splitters properly was the hard part so here is how i laid out mine i hope it helps (notice how you set the splitter inside the splitters)

Actually quite a good alternative for Default UI spectrum visualization does exist - it's called Musical Spectrum.

 

When talking about Visualizations plugins, I recommend you to try Musical Spectrum (foo_musical_spectrum) plugin.

 

It's a really great visualization component for both: Default UI and Columns UI.

I cannot get the DarkOne v4 to load with the newest version of Foobar. It gives me a crash error every time I try.

Fusion Beta 2.4.1: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Fusion-Beta-v-2-4-1-16-Feb-2015-464482526

 

It's the best theme I have ever worked with. So comprehensive and feature-rich.

 


Main View:

 

 

 

Album Drop-Down:

 

 

Handles Multi-Discs Well:

 

 

Lots of Easy-Access UI Customizations:

 

 

 

Also, I put my entire media library into a playlist; runs incredibly smooth. Seriously one of the best themes out there.

Wow, thanks for posting about this! It is really awesome! My Foobar installation was getting quite old and I was using a different (but kind of similar) theme package. But this is much better! The only con is that my old theme had to Lyrics and Last.fm integration complete... I hope this one gets it finished soon!
