Hi all, first post. Recently switched over to Foobar and im liking it a lot so far.

At the minute i have it set up like this


As much as i like the layout i have at the minute i would mind being able to move the tracks area from the right, to where the playlist is at the bottom, and then have a narrow playlist down the right hand side. I'd also remove the EQ and visualization.

The library viewer im using is Facets and i quite like how simple it is and easy it is to set up. However, I just can't get it setup the way i would like.

This is how i want it laid out, but when i click on the genre/artist/album at the top it should show the tracks contained at the bottom.


Any ideas how i would go about achieving this?

Really appreciate the help everyone. Thanks in advance.

not possible. the facets panes all have to belong to the same panel for them to be linked.

Ok, are there any other media library plugins that allow for such a layout?

those filters are a bit naff compared to facets though. no columns, no stats, you can't sort by clicking the headers, etc...

facets with genre/artist/album
enable library selection viewer playlist
create a esplaylist panel beneath; lock it to the library selection viewer playlist and let it display whatever you need

Yeah tried using Column's UI and it is just awkward to setup and isnt very good once its setup. Lack of columns and what not... surprisingly.

What exactly is an esplaylist?

Just if you have success with cloning the layout of Winamp that doesn't mean that it also would behave like Winamp. In fact you would get something different.

The only good advice: Get Winamp or get used with foobar2000!

Who said anything about Winamp? The way i want it laid out is just a logical layout for me. I've used Winamp a lot in the past, and i've already copied all the functionality i need from winamp, apart from the media library layout.

If i double click on an genre artist or album it gets sent to the current playlist. I don't have multiple playlists on the go. Just a playlist that functions exactly the same as in winamp.

I don't want Winamp because its become very slow over the last few years and foobar is just very quick and customizable. I just cant find a good media library for it. Not to say Facets isnt good, it just doesnt do 100% of what i want.

You, who mentioned that almost anything was copied, and your layout, that also shows the second searchbar.

This still doesnt help. I have no idea what es_playlist does nor can i read whatever language used on the website that is linked to.

1. preferences > media library > library selection playlist > [X] enabled
2. make two panels, one top, one bottom
3. in the top one set up facets to your liking, genre/artist/album
4. in the bottom one set up esplaylist to show the information you're missing, i.e. title/tracknumber/...
5. right clich esplaylist panel > playlists > [X] library selection viewer
