foo Flow by radecke foo Flow by radecke
IMPORTANT: use this version of foobar: [link]
it won't work with newer versions


How to install my theme

First you need to copy all the files from the archive foo_flow.rar to your foobar2000 directory (i recommend to use a fresh installation). After that you need to get the font "Calibri" which i can't provide because of the copyright. But Calibri comes with some Microsoft products like Vista, Office 2007 or the free PowerPoint Viewer 2007. Then you need to download the other fonts: [link]

Go to Preferences -> Display and choose Panels UI as the User Interface Module and then go to Panels UI and select flow.pui as the default layout.

Now you need to configure foo_run for the cover downloader to work. Go to the Preferences and set it up like on the screenshot: [link]
If you're using Windows Vista 64 the path has to look like this: "C:/Program Files '('x86')'/foobar2000/...". Notice the apostrophes around the brackets.
After you have done that you can run the Albumart Downloader by clicking the third button from the left (The Albumart Downloader and the plugin foo_uie_queuemanager need Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 to be installed). A new window should open and a search with the currently playing album should start, looking for the cover.

Go to the Preferences again and set the Lyric show plugin up like on this screenshot: [link]

To use the Quicksearch you need to import your music collection to the database. You can do this in the Preferences under Media Library by adding your music folder. After that you have to scan these folders by clicking on the second button from the left. Everytime you add new music to your folder you have to rescan the Media Library so that it can be found using the search panel. From now on you just need to enter the album, the artist, or the song you want to listen to and it appears in a new playlist. Set the background color of the quicksearch plugin to 40-40-40 and the fontcolor to 255-255-255. Also apply this color scheme to the queue manager and set the font to calibri, size 8.

If you can't set flow.pui as the layout it usually helps to deinstall foobar2000 and to delete the whole foobar folder. After that just install it again, unzip my theme and it should work.

If the playlist doesn't look like on the screenshot it might help to make a rightclick on it and go to Sort / Group by -> Artist / Date / Album

Anybody having problems with this i have prepared a zip with all the stuff you need as best i know. I had a working copy of this and just took captures of lyric show panels and also the syntax for a an install on windows 7 64bit and i also installed it on windows 10 64bit.

I managed to get streamripper and cover downloader working fine. Just follow some of the instructions and copy and paste the syntax for the best skin ever.

Any question feel free. This is none of my work this skin, just trying to help people get the skin back due to radecke's website resources being down.

If the coverdownloader doesn't work by clicking on the actual button then right click the cover and do run covers and it'll definitely work.

Hey there, Rad.

Is there any remote chance you might want to eventually try to update it, in order to work with foobar 1.1.10? That would be sooooo awesome... :)

I just have to say, this is an awesome skin~ Good job! =)

I only have one problem. It won't show my album art. Most of my files already have the art embedded in it; and for some reason, the player doesn't show it. I tried everything I could think of, and nothing works. Coverdownload also doesn't work. A response would be appreciated. Thanks again for the skin! :3

The only thing that would make this skin better would be having it remember it's location for the full and miniplayer modes, so I could switch between them more fluidly.

thank you and great work once again...

p/s: there's a bug in 0.95 version where i cant Ctrl+A(select all) and hit "delete" but i changed to 0.94 and it works fine... it isn't really a big problem though since this skin is just... i'm speechless you get what i mean? xD

that's because there are no hotkeys set after you install 0.9.5
but you can set them in the preferences under general -> keaboard shortcuts

Of course I had to do a clean install of foobar, but that seems to be the norm when using a new layout.

Great freakin job. :thumbsup:

I can't get the album art to work for the life of me. 95+% of my music already has embedded artwork, which it doesn't ready. I copied the image for creating the Coverdownload button, and it still doesn't work. !help! :-)

This is an awesome piece of work man, and even with the problems I'm having, it's still top notch. Out of curiosity, why didn't you just export the coverdownload script to an xml and put that in the rar file for everybody to import? Just curious.

Perhaps it's because you are not using the right font? Did you download the fonts .zip?

What plugin (or code) do you use to show the next album? I've been looking for something like that. :)

radecke Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2007  Hobbyist Interface Designer
i don't use a plugin. i coded it myself in panels ui (except for the %cwb_next_user1% and %cwb_next_user2% variables from cwb_hooks)

here's the code:

$if($stricmp(%album%,%cwb_next_user1%),,
$puts(slash,$strrchr(%cwb_next_user2%,\))
$imageabs2(75,75,,,,,$eval(%_width%-160),210,$substr(%cwb_next_user2%,1,$eval($get(slash)-1))/folder.jpg,nokeepaspect)
)

%cwb_next_user1% is set to %album%
%cwb_next_user2% is set to %path%
