External Tools + Foobar2000

by Biggus_Dickus » Sat Jul 11, 2020 3:42 pm

Hi,
I'd like to send selected songs from MediaMonkey to foobar2000 and play them immediately.
I had set up external tools long time ago and it worked. But I've forgotten parameters and won't get it again.
Can annyone help?`

If you played the desired file beforehand, MM has locked the file for editing.
In MM, play another file briefly and stop again.

Die Parameter sind für die Einzelbearbeitung OK.
Falls sie den gewünschten file vorher abgespielt haben, hat MM den File zur Bearbeitung gesperrt.
Spielen sie in MM einen anderen File kurz an und stoppen wieder.

Hi all,

Please pardon my ignorance on this...I try to understand how the parameters work, but it's confusing to me. I used to have this parameter set correctly, but after a reinstall of MM, I am at a loss and need some help.

I wish to have a selected track open into my external editor (SoundForge). Currently the editor opens, but the track does not load and I end up having to drag it over or use File > Open. I get an error in SoundForge "Warning: an error occurred when opening one or more files. The file could not be opened. Make sure that the file exists and that you have access to the file/folder."

I have the parameter "%O:" and "Run it once" selected. What other parameter do I need to include to ensure the file is loaded into the editor? Or is it a permission issue?

Thank you!

Problem with a script: ExternalTools.VBS

by Edgar » Thu Oct 10, 2019 10:30 pm

I wanted to change an option (Library> Tags & Playlists> "Update tags when editing properties" checkbox). It was checked and I wanted to remove the check. I did so then clicked on the "OK" button and got this:
Image
(just in case you can't see the image, here's the text:)
Error #-2147418113 - SongsDB.SDBUIDropDown
Control " has no parent window
File: "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto\ExternalTools.vbs", Line: 666, Column: 4

BTW, I closed Options then reopened it and the check had been removed as I wanted.

Simple, just use %W as the parameter, and voila it worked.

One can disregard this post.

Hello,

Some years ago I was using your tool to launch a pdf viewer that took the filename out of the songs table (from a custom field in Songs) and it worked great.

Because of a reinstall on a new computer I've completely forgotten how I did this. I installed version 1.4 but the associated documentation on how to use this has disappeared from the web (and this forum).

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

You need to rescan files into MMW

using Advanced Renamer program with MM

by MrJamesEMcBride » Fri Mar 09, 2018 8:53 am

Hello,
I am a new MM user, and I figured out how to send a list of filenames to a filename editor to work on them. After I have manipulated the filenames, I need MM to reflect the changes made to the filenames, which it doesnt now. How can I accomplish that?

Thanks in advance

outline of problem
I have been able to place an podcast rss style feed of youtube address into the mediamonkey database.

So i have looked and found the ExternalTools script. i have found on the internet youtube-dl as a parameter the the link to the youtube webpage and downloads the video.
Need to clarify
In the mediamonkey podcast list of episodes there is a list of youtube web pages ie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQiG2dfXd0 ( example link) in the path section

useing the ExternalTools script I seem not to work on paths that are SHOWING GREYOUT in the database.
i have tryed
C:\monkey\youtube-dl.exe
parameter %P

(error expecting script event. Invaliad procedure call or argument)

this is the comand line that works

Code: Select all

c:\youtube-dl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQiG2dfXd0 ( example link)


Any ideas or what have i missed ?????
thanks kevin

Register to MM's Mediamonkey.registry (a file in MM portable folder), read about it here under description.
According to the status in the Mantis report (link), that manual reg. issue Peke was referring to should be fixed now, as I didn't have to deal with
it when installing.

However, there is another issue involving "Line 20" that can pop up when you try to install. Look for the words "Line 20"
somewhere on the error message. If that happens, follow Zephyr's instructions
above and it should work. Notes after reading through Zephyr's post, you only need notepad (Win Accessories)
or notepad++ to read a .vbs file (just click on it). Depending on the Archiver you use, it may not rename the .zip back to .mmip directly
from the interface of the Archiver. Just try to rename it and if it creates the file into the destination folder with .zip still on the end of it,
just manually change it back to .mmip from explorer.
