foo_playlisthistory enables playlist history in foobar2000, similar to page history in browsers.

The component watches activated playlists and provides the user back and next buttons to navigate the playlist history.
Two commands are provided under the View/Recently activated playlists: Previous playlist and Next playlist.

From 0.1.4 onwards the component includes Restore last removed playlist command in the Edit menu.

Newest version: 0.1.6 / 2011-04-05

Requires foobar 1.1->

For more information, please see the Wiki page.

nice component but when i heard the name i had a different idea.
this provides a shortcut to focus to the previous playlist that was played.
kinda handy when you have many playlists.
but in the event of a playlist being replaced or deleted, it can't undo those changes.

could you possible make the component like the winamp plugin "Playlist Undo"?
that was pretty handy and i have been missing that in foobar.

@matav Yes, the component name might be a bit misleading but it will have to do for now. The playlist undo seems like an interesting feature but for now I'm not going to implement it. I recommend to look for foo_jesus which can automatically backup playlists (among other things). I know it's not the same thing but at least it might help in situations where you have accidentally removed a playlist.

Also note that you can recover replaced playlists using the 'standard' playlist undo functionality (Edit/Undo).

Actually, I just noticed that you can recover removed playlists using the standard "Playlist Manager" (DUI element). After deleting a playlist you can right-click the element and choose "Restore.../Name of the playlist". Unfortunately, it seems that this functionality is not available to keyboard shortcuts (nor there is "restore last removed playlist" command).


@all:
I'm going to bring 'after delete activate last used playlist' feature to the next version (first proposed in the thread linked by Robertina).
EDIT: New version released.


Thanks to all for your feedback, it's nice to hear that people find this useful!
