"This tiny little thingy allows you to store/read meta information in CUE sheets. No more database dependence! Put all your GENRE, DATE, COMMENT etc. tags straight in CUE. For melo-maniacs..
Also supports playlist->cue export/saving feature."

I cannot for the life of me see how to create a cuesheet from the current playlist

If I go to save the playlist I just get the options of fpl, m3u and m3u8. If I right-click on the items I get nothing. Nothing in the Components menu item.

Can someone explain where I should be looking please?

I don't know what routines the foobar SDK provides to 3rd party programmers.

Neither do I, but I am pretty certain there will be facility to query a playlist and find the files used and the exact length of each track... and that's all we need really.

In my opinion, the main reason for using a foobar-plugin to create a cuesheet directly from foobar itself lies in its ability to write the exact cue points of several independent tracks before they are combined into one large file (as described above), such as audiobooks consisting of separate track rips. Thus, the component should primarily with the request to create a cuesheet with one file for the whole playlist in mind. Selected tracks are taken and written to the cuesheet file, leaving the task of creating the actual media file to the user.

Exactly. Diskwriter being the obvious choice, to create the image file from the same playlist.


NB: For those that want to create a cuesheet for individual files, as foo_cue_ex appeared to previously do, you can just use the following as your copy command ("Preferences > Display > Title formatting > Copy command"):

CODE
FILE "%_path%" $if($stricmp(%__codec%,MP3),MP3,$if($stricmp(%__codec%,AIFF),AIFF,WAVE))$char(10)
   TRACK $num(%_playlist_number%,2) AUDIO$char(10)
$if(%title%,    TITLE "%title%"$char(10),)
$if(%artist%,    PERFORMER "%artist%"$char(10),)
   INDEX 01 00:00:00


Select all the tracks, right-click and choose "Copy names" (or press Ctrl+C), then paste into a new text file and save as <name>.cue.

Edit: updated copy code - now correctly uses the FILE type (MP3, AIFF, or WAVE)

Now the only thing we really need is an ambitious developer willing to dedicate some days of work (I'm sure it won't take longer since it should be trivial work) to this project ... wink.gif

Cool idea, didn't make that up myself before smile.gif The plugin in question therefore definitely has to provide a mechanism for "one-file"-cuesheets only.
