The Volume Lock plugin was added, and version numbers for other plugins were checked and updated.

(let me know if I have missed some updated plugin)

I noticed your start post mentions 2.1.0, and the download link does indeed retrieve 2.1.0.
But on GitHub I see 2.1.1.
Is that a stable release? If so, the start post should probably be modified?

We were wondering if this perhaps would not better be moved to the plugins board.
(and making it sticky)

- a couple of descriptions were improved (reworded)
- the KaraokeShow plugin was removed from the list
  (several users reported it malfunctioning—confirmed by me testing it myself today—and it also seems to have been abandoned by the creator)
- the topic title for this thread was changed (from saying only 'plugins' to it saying 'plugins & extensions')

I wouldn't want to lose the word 'plugin' since they are the majority of the list, and people will perform searches on that word.
Perhaps:  MusicBee plugins and extensions repository

At this point, It might be a good idea to define exactly what is meant by "plugin" in the context of the repository, which has gone beyond just what would normally be placed in the MusicBee/Plugins directory, or be present in the Add-Ons/Plugins section of the website.
That's a valid observation.
In my mind things that deserve a place in this list are pieces of software/code that extend the funcionality of MusicBee.

While you are correct that e.g. fpcalc and bass_aac will not be called plugins in the narrower meaning of the word, they do extend MusicBee's functionality.
- fpcalc adds the feature of recognising songs by their sound signature
- bass_aac adds the possibilty to play hi-res aac files
  edit: well, hi-res is a vague term. To be more specific: I think that the bass_aac dll allows to play 96kHz files while Windows' (MusicBee's) default aac codec won't play them?

So in that sense I believe they are valid and useful to be present in this list.

If we would have agreement on this, maybe the name 'plugin repository' should be changed to something that has a wider coverage?
Something that covers and describes plugins, addons, extensions and whatnot?

edit:
the topic name was changed to include the lovely vague 'extensions'.

@sveakul:

I have added bass_aac.dll to the list.
Let me know if you think there are other dll's by un4seen that deserve a place in the list?

One more for edit, fpcalc.exe is not by Steven but created by Lukáš Lalinský.  Latest release is 1.5.1 (2021-12-23) and the binary resides inside the Chromaprint packages here: https://github.com/acoustid/chromaprint/releases .
Thanks sveakul, the name of the original creator was changed.
But I think it's best to leave the link linking to the forum page for fpcalc.
People will probably be confused when the link for fpcalc leads to a webpage about Chromaprint. And there is no room in the table to explain that.

edit:
As some sort of compromise: you can now click on the name of Lukáš Lalinský and it will lead to his GitHub page regarding Chromaprint.

bass_dts.dll is "for real" and allows playback of DTS files.  Steven is not the "developer" however (https://github.com/sophie-gilbert/BASS_DTS).
Thanks sveakul!
Bass_DTS hss been added.

The responses (over PMs) have been positive, so I guess this repository is here to stay.

Updates:

- Several dates and weblinks were corrected or updated.

- Some plugins were removed since they seem to have been abandoned.
  Let me know if you believe they are still functioning and useful:
  • Web Browser/ Mp3 Blog File Scanner by Steven
  • Ghost tracks by e-motiv
  • GMT Manager by Davidblkx
  • ON AIR for Skype by boroda
  • Skype Now Playing by kelsos

- I found two plugins by Steven here of which I am not sure if they are currently still working or useful.
  Could somebody say something about them? Are they actual and functioning and should they be added to the repository?:
  • SnarlConnector
  • bass_dts

- One plugin was removed since the download for it gets blocked by Google saying it contains a virus:
  QQ Lyrics by mslxl  (for a Chinese lyrics provider)


edit:
Two plugins by CharlieJiang were briefly removed from-,  and now restored to the repository.
He promptly responded and investigated a virus alert trigger issue and has convinced me that the plugins are safe, and the virus warnings were not valid.



but obviously:
Always use your own methods and good judgement for checking plugins for viruses!
MusicBee is not, nor can be responsible for plugins by other parties.

About this plugins repository

Thoughts

To be honest I am not completely sure if it is a good idea to have this repository added, since there is already a forum board for  Plugins, as well as a MusicBee Add-ons section on MusicBee's website.
So having this third repository might complicate things further in keeping information such as available plugins, their version numbers, still operational or not, etc. updated and synchronised.

Therefore this can be considered an experiment.
If it proves to fail its objectives or doesn't get much support it can always be deleted far as I am concerned.



Objective

The objective is not to present a complete list of all plugins that have ever been released.
The objective is to list plugins that are currently working to satisfaction for many users.

edit:
The scope has been widened from only 'plugins', to other extensions/software/code that adds useful functionality to MusicBee.


Some of the plugins will not work (anymore) in all situations or for all devices, or have not been maintained for a very long time, but as long as they work for a substantial amount of users they deserve to be in the list.


Following this train of thought, plugins that don't need to (shouldn't) be in this list:
  • plugins that are failing to work for a majority of users due to the absence of further maintanace
  • older plugins that still work, but have been surpassed by newer and improved plugins doing the same thing
  • plugins that are causing serious issues


ToDo's / Maintanance
  • add missing plugins
  • remove malfunctioning plugins
  • check version numbers and 'last updated' dates *
  • review plugin descriptions
  • review the choice and names of plugin categories
* Many of the currently listed version numbers and dates are incorrect.

The reason being that the website plugins page for many plugins (incorrectly) states v1.0 as the version. Also the version numbers and dates are often not updated by the creator of the plugin.
Sometimes current and reliable info can be found on the forum pages, sometimes on the website, and sometimes on sites like GitHub.
So it will take some time and detective work to find out the correct information and correct the current errors.

edit:
I changed all plugins by Steven from v1.0 to ?
It's better to have no information than bad information.



Any help with all this is appreciated!
