All you need is columns ui and some simple coding found in the help page I believe for that particular foobar.

You're welcome... wait, there are other ways to make a remote for Foobar. Run foobar with /help at the end and you get commands for playing foobar.

You could make shortcuts, and then put them in quicklaunch and stuff.

abyssal: for the GSM foobar you'll have to use foo_looks and collumns_ui (foo_looks doesnt run with foobar 0.9x tho)

the foobar on the first shot is even just the default_ui I think ...you'll have a similar look right after installing it, just change the colors and the placement of the visualisation toolbar et voila!

yeah man. its wasnt GSM foobar specifically i was talking about. i was asking about how to get a remote like that for foobar but Pyro cleared everything up. And i think i got it know.I definitely like foobar better than winamp now. it was a great switch.but thanks for the help.all i did was install columns ui and reshacked the icon out as well as made some buttons. whew

foo_looks is a skinnable plugin for Foobar (0.8.3), which controls it, much like the top part of a Winamp skin, where the regular Foobar (playlist) is more like Winamp's bottom part.

Nice link. Sometimes you need the older version of apps.

Currently I can't remember with FB 0.8.3. I really want that bar spectrum! If anyone has a link or has the plugin to do that in old FB I might kill or it.

Stigf :

go to preferences - select columns ui in the explorer tree - then click on the Layout tab. This is where you add toolbars,buttons,panels, and the spectrum analyser. Look at the splitter type you have, for having the spectrum at the bottom you need it to be a vertical splitter. then from there, right-click on the vertical splitter on the layout order and go to insert panel. Then go to visualizations and select the spectrum analyser. Then you should see it at the bottom and then apply.

does this help? if you still have trouble just message me.

Get columns ui and choose hide status bar. Or go to title formatting and delete the information in the status bar even.

Try visiting Neowin's customizing foobar section, or hydrogenaudio forums.
