Use foobar tools within Mp3tag?


#1

I've searched the forum and couldn't find anything specific to my needs. Please forgive me if I missed something obvious.

I like to use the file verification components that can be added into foobar: Verify Integrity/Rebuild MP3 Stream/Fix VBR MP3 Header...

However, in order to use them, I have to open foobar, drag the files into foobar, then right-click, etc. etc.

Is there any way to call these utilities from within Mp3tag using the Tools options?

Thanks!

Should be possible with Run Command / foo_runcmd:

See this excerpt from my tools.ini ...

[#33]
MTTOOLSNAME=foobar2000 fix VBR header
MTTOOLSPARAM='/hide /runcmd-files\u003d"Utilities/Fix VBR MP3 header..." "'%_path%'"'
MTTOOLSPATH=C:\\\\Programme\\\\foobar2000\\\\foobar2000.exe
MTTOOLSINST=1

[#34]
MTTOOLSNAME=foobar2000 Rebuild MP3 Stream
MTTOOLSPARAM='/hide /runcmd-files\u003d"Utilities/Rebuild MP3 stream" "'%_path%'"'
MTTOOLSPATH=C:\\\\Programme\\\\foobar2000\\\\foobar2000.exe
MTTOOLSINST=1

[#35]
MTTOOLSNAME=foobar2000 Prepare for ReplayGain
MTTOOLSPARAM='/add "'%_path%'"'
MTTOOLSPATH=C:\\\\Programme\\\\foobar2000\\\\foobar2000.exe
MTTOOLSINST=1

Adding Volume Leveling to MP3Tag

Thanks! I changed the path so it matches but I get this error when it runs:

"unknown commandline parameter: /runcmd-files=Utilities/Rebuild MP3 stream"

same thing for the other one.

Here is what I have in my INI now:

[#01]
MTTOOLSNAME=foobar2000 fix VBR header
MTTOOLSPARAM='/hide /runcmd-files\u003d"Utilities/Fix VBR MP3 header..." "'%_path%'"'
MTTOOLSPATH=C:\\Program Files\\foobar2000\\foobar2000.exe
MTTOOLSINST=1

[#02]
MTTOOLSNAME=foobar2000 Rebuild MP3 Stream
MTTOOLSPARAM='/hide /runcmd-files\u003d"Utilities/Rebuild MP3 stream" "'%_path%'"'
MTTOOLSPATH=C:\\Program Files\\foobar2000\\foobar2000.exe
MTTOOLSINST=1

Running either one actually starts playing the file in foobar.

Actually, is there some other component I need to add to foobar to make this happen?

Maybe there is something wrong with the entries in the tools.ini?
Copy the given examples as is into the tools.ini, adapt the file path to your need.
Try again.

The runcmd tool uses the foobar menu names.
Maybe your foobar version runs another language?
And the menu dialog entries have another spelling?
I don't know if that would be of any matter, but it should be checked too.

Hey - my syntax/spelling was fine - I was missing the "foo_runcmd" component.
Everything runs fine now. Thanks again for all your help!
