Re: Big Bento Modern - final release v1.14

From original script (songinfo.maki):

string getBitrate ()
{
   string sit = strlower(getSongInfoText());
   if (sit != "")
   {
      string rtn;
      int searchresult;
      for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
         rtn = getToken(sit, " ", i);
         searchResult = strsearch(rtn, "kbps");
         if (searchResult>0) return StrMid(rtn, 0, searchResult);
      }
      return "";
   }
   else
   {
      return "";
   }
}


Sounds like a really complicated method since there is getPlayItemMetaDataString(bitrate) or getMetaDataString(String filename, bitrate), but I'm sure there's a reason for it..

Querying the current item for the information & then reverting to the above if there wasn't anything provided would probably be a better option. As most of the input plug-ins can return the bitrate (unless it's stream or a less commonly used 3rd party input plug-in).

First of all, thanks for the skin, its awesome!

I am really new to all of this and i noticed something weird...

When i try to show the notification with the global hotkey, it only works if the song has an album cover. When i disable album cover in general, it still only works on those songs with a cover. On song change it always shows the notification, regardless of the album cover. How can i fix this? ._.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it.What you mention is weird indeed, but I can imagine a possible solution, I'll check it out later. In the meantime can you test if Bento / Big Bento work as expected on this regard?

Interesting... I've made some tests and aparently is a wide spread Winamp bug, I replicated it on Big Bento, Winamp Modern, cPro skins, etc.

Have you ever seen this work in a skin? Which one?

Hi all ...... and what can i say...this Wacup project is incredible.

I'm a winamp user from the early years and still use it today.

I've been using the Big bento skin on the original winamp and i'm really impressed from what it became now. Super impressiv.

But i miss a few things, maybe someone can help me.

THis is my playing screen with big bento on the original winamp.   Its perfect except the small player..i can not set it on double size.  I just need a volume slider cause i play many oldies also so i want to play with the volume while playing music.
And i just need a playlist that stays long at the side so i can choose what i want to play next while enjoying the visuals in the middle pane of AVS.
see screenshot from the original big bento.....almost perfect.

Now with the new big bento for wacup..i like everything except i miss a dedicated slider for playing with the volume while playing music. And i have no idea how the get a 3 pane version like left side the shortcuts, middle pane the visualisation and right side the playlist.
top left the player, top right the info panel is perfect.

see screenshot

And how do i get The AVS visualisation istead of milkdrop.... AVS is so much better ;-)

Thx in advance

Hey Friend. Welcome to the project.
Two steps will get you all settled.
Picture 1: Click on the Skin Settings > Playlist > Turn Off Show Playlist Tab
Picture 2: Click on VIEW at the top
Check Playlist Editor
UnCheck Waveform Seeker

It definitely crashes more than Milkdrop so it wins on that count & is why it's not included with WACUP out of the box.

You can manually get the plug-in either from a 5.666 install or one of the archives online (e.g. visbot I believe has it).

Alternatively the next WACUP preview build (is already present in the recent beta builds) has an option to download a couple of versions of AVS (not the presets however) so you can hopefully find one that'll work correctly (or at least less likely to crash) compared to the others.

Wow..that was quick.

@Juanus : i just want the playlist...i don't want the media library. I always load my playlist with the + add tab at the bottom in playlist. ... so i just want 3 panes left the shortcuts (media library, playlist,video,  visualisation etc) then in the middle the visualisations or the playlist and in the left pane visualisation or playlist.  So a 3 pane windows with shortcuts, visualisation and playlist...nothing more ....is that possible?

@dro ...you are correct..it crashes more but i have all 2700+ presets for avs ;-) i think the clue will be to get the ones that work well ;-) i also have the 5.666 installed with several plugins. Tried to copy and paste the avs but that didin't worked;)
Yes a saw visbot a few days ago on a webiste somewhere..i have to look it up again..thx

still a few questions
-is there a way to get the lyricks automatic showing in wacup ...my daughter of eight is learning english for the first time:-)
-i also have a oldtimer with a cassette player..so i have a dedicated cassette deck to record them...do you now how i can normalise (same output audio volume) the volume level for all sonsgs so i can record a playlist.

Check my screenshot:

1. Click it to send the Playlist to the right side
2. This will set the visualizer for the main area (this whole area is the same as the Tabs in Bento, it's vertical instead of Horizontal)
3. You'll have to click this to have the volume pop-up and don't move your mouse outside of that region so it won't hide. Sadly that's your only option here, stick the pop-up opened is not possible at the moment.

Oh, you're basically expecting a new skin, that won't happen anytime soon (mainly the top-right part where you point out an EQ / Lyrics box). In the meantime you can get as close as you were with original Bento if you follow my instructions depicted on the screenshot of my previous message. Cheers!

Oh no, i'm expecting nothing...just curious if it was possible. I'm no programmer so i have no idea how easy or difficult it is to change a skin. For me Winamp is a player..not an organiser, so the stuff thats important to play songs and enjoy it have to be in the main screen like my screenshot.
Like you said : the original bento was the way i played music for years, but i like the look of the new modern version. You know...if you ask nothing, you will get nothing....etc ;-)

But Top Kudo's for the new modern version.
