Hello!

I'm using foobar2000 with the AMIP plugin and it's great, but I need more custom %s strings. On every song change a curl script updates my signature on various forums. I would like to upload a slightly different signature depending on the forum. Please can you provide more custom strings formats (like %1, %2 etc...) in the foobar2000 plugin? Thanks.

PS: it would be nice if the text area in the "Callbacks/Web Integration" section of the Java configurator took all the available space (height). Thanks.

You can construct your strings from the individual tags, refer to AMIP documentation for help.

I'll see what can I do with the window resize.

The problem with this method is that AMIP doesn't support as much tag formats as foobar. SPC, PSF, GBS, for example, are not read by AMIP.
foobar supports so much audio formats that it would be a waste not to make use of its tag reading capabilities, don't you think?

A solution for this problem may appear in AMIP 3.0 where you'll be able to map foobar variables to AMIP variables in foobar settings.

Another problem is that some special characters have different encodings depending on the forum. For example on one forum, this character ♪ has to be encoded as %26%239834%3B, and on another forum as %E2%99%AA. Mapping foobar variables to AMIP won't solve this. I think that having a few custom strings would be much more flexible.

By the way $uc() doesn't work with ♪ and capitalizes all other ones such as , , , etc...
