foo_queuecontents enables the user to edit and view queue contents through an ui element. Both the Default User Interface (DUI) and Columns User Interface (CUI/uie) are supported. As a legacy option, queue contents can also be viewed and edited by a special queue playlist, which is updated automatically with queue contents.

Newest version: 0.5.1 / 2012-03-11

For more information, please see the Wiki page.

QUOTE (krzyszcz @ Feb 24 2010, 14:38) *
In playlists tab I have "My music", *Browser*, "Filter Results" (from Columns UI) and Queue (by foo_queuecontents) and none of them is a queue.

Well, that's your fault. Make a playlist containing the songs you want to play. If you don't want to play "My music" or "Filter Results", then don't play them! Only the songs you want to play (in queue) should be added to your playlist.

And if "My music" contains all of the music in your library, then STOP DOING THAT! Cramming all of your music into a playlist is the "iTunes" way of doing things. You can't choose to do things the "iTunes" way, and then complain that foobar isn't doing it the "Winamp" way.

QUOTE (krzyszcz @ Feb 24 2010, 14:38) *
Queue is a list of all songs waiting to be played. And how can it be impossible with foobar, which is so configurable and has so many plugins available, while in Winamp it is an onboard functionality.

How is what you're asking for any different than a playlist? If you double click on a song in a playlist, the rest of the songs in that playlist are the "list of songs waiting to be played". Why are you making this so much more difficult than it needs to be?



QUOTE (krzyszcz @ Feb 24 2010, 15:04) *
I don't want to change anything about the way I search songs and arrange their playback. I just want a panel, that would be able to show in a particular moment everything that foobar will play since that moment, unless I change something.

Look, I get it, you used to use Winamp (or some other player), and now you're trying to turn foobar2000 into Winamp. I used Winamp for about 10 years or so before switching to foobar. I know that Winamp uses a "Playlist Editor" component to display the now playing. Trust me when I say that what you're asking for makes no sense in the context of what foobar does. If you're truly unwilling to "change anything about the way I search for songs and arrange their playback", then foobar evidently is not for you. Switch to a player that does it the way you want. However, if you choose to give it a chance (as I did), I can almost guarantee you'll look back at this thread and realize how ridiculous this request is.

QUOTE (krzyszcz @ Feb 24 2010, 15:04) *
As you probably realized - those elements, that would be shown in this panel, don't necessarily belong to the same playlist.

WHY? Why do you want to play multiple songs in a queue and specifically NOT put them on the same playlist? How does that make any sense?

QUOTE (krzyszcz @ Feb 24 2010, 15:04) *
And I really don't know why you understand the word 'queue' as a playlist generated by "add to playback queue" context menu option. Queue are all the songs that foobar is set to play and their order. They are waiting for playback in a ...queue.

Once again, you're mistaken. A "queue" IS specifically those songs in which the user has selected "add to playback queue". The "songs that foobar is set to play and their order" is a PLAYLIST! The playlist is the list of songs playing / waiting to be played. As I've said before, you're making this WAY more difficult than it needs to be.

@ krzyszcz: the only reason I can imagine, why you want the queue the way you describe it, is: to get a preview of whatīs played next if you play your library in shuffle or random mode, and eventually want to edit that. Anything else makes no sense and is neither wanted nor needed, if you understand the principle behind foobar. The queue here is definitely only to send additional or better from you defined tracks to the playback, nothing more. And to watch anything YOU added you have the Queue playlist, and thatīs enough.
