MusicBee API / Re: API - NowPlayingList Size
« on: December 13, 2020, 12:53:04 PM »
Thanks for your help, in the end I used the following code which initial fiddling around seems to work and keeps the tracks being the current playing position in check;

                      // Keep Queue trimmed down
                                while (mbApiInterface.NowPlayingList_GetCurrentIndex() > 5)

All the best

MusicBee API / API - NowPlayingList Size
« on: December 12, 2020, 09:15:34 PM »

I'm adding tracks and trying to limit the size of the NowPlayingList to remove older played tracks.

I had a look at mbApiInterface.NowPlayingList_IsAnyPriorTracks() but this just return true/false and I can't seem to find a function to return the size of the list?

Thanks in advance

MusicBee API / MusicBeePlugin.Plugin.MetaDataType Playcount?
« on: June 03, 2017, 12:30:16 AM »

I'm looking to pull a track's playcount metadata from the library for a given track.  However I couldn't find a playcount for MusicBeePlugin.Plugin.MetaDataType

Is it exposed, or can I pull it via some other means?

Perfect thank you just what I needed! :) 

TheaterMode / PlayerBar Button Size
« on: June 01, 2017, 11:59:13 PM »

Is it possible to change the size of the PlayerBar Play/FFwd buttons etc?  I plan to use MusicBee in a car on a roadtrip and trying to press the buttons when they are only 1cm in a moving car might be a challenge :)

<element type="PlayerBar" extras="ProgressBar" x="3" y="10" width="250" height="50" bdr="230,20,20,20" bg="230,20,20,20" fg="245,245,245" fg2="200,200,200" ></element>

Changing the width/height only makes the bar itself bigger and not the scaling of the buttons?


MusicBee API / Re: Importing data into MusicBee

Thanks for your help.  I did a proof of concept and managed to craft an iTunes XML file that MusicBee accepted and updated the library, so just in the process of writing a quick C# program to do the conversation of my source XML file to a suitable importable format.

Thanks for the steer :)

MusicBee API / Importing data into MusicBee
« on: May 21, 2017, 09:51:28 PM »

I have a ton of playcount and track rating that I can export to an xml file.  I would like to import this into MusicBee but it looks to be using a bespoke format? and not for example a sqlite database?  I was hoping for a simple column I could have matched and imported  ;D

Any suggestions on how to import the data?


MusicBee API / AddMenuItem - Creating sub-menus
« on: May 20, 2017, 02:57:13 PM »

How do I create a menu with sub-menu items?

This works (as per the docs)
            mbApiInterface.MB_AddMenuItem("mnuTools/xx", "hello", menuClicked);

This doesn't work;
            mbApiInterface.MB_AddMenuItem("mnuTools/xx/aa", "hello", menuClicked);
            mbApiInterface.MB_AddMenuItem("mnuTools/xx/aa/", "hello", menuClicked);

I want to create about three menu items, so it makes sense for them to be sub-items

Thanks in advance

Beyond MusicBee / Re: Video Player which supports media library
« on: May 05, 2017, 12:29:11 PM »
It depends which options you install, if you do a custom install you can remove the TV components.  Plus in the configuration you can disable a lot of things you don't need.

It's pretty configurable, so I have mine only pulling metadata when its paused and not playing content so that will also help.

Further details here on min. specs;

Good Luck

Might be a bit heavy for your requirements.  But I use Team Mediaportal (1.x branch) with StreamedMP skin, MovingPictures plugin and TVSeries plugin.  They provide the metadata and also keep track of which movies and TV episodes you have watched.

Lots to fiddle with there :)
