native CUE sheet support

Post by GZoSt » Thu May 29, 2008 11:15 am

I have been considering switching from my current player, 1by1, to MediaMonkey for a while. Whenever I'm almost ready, I come across a new mix CD in one file with a cue-sheet.
After some tries I got a handler plug-in to work, but this is not really a satisfactory solution, since my hotkeys for next/previous track don't work with this.
How come something as powerful as MediaMonkey doesn't handle this native and in a satifactory fashion? 1by1, at around 100KB total player size manages well enough...

Was the plugin my "Cue Reader" script? I know it's not ideal, and that native support should be added, but if you have any suggestions for improvement to my script I'd be happy to take a look (except the hotkey thing unfortunately, I don't think there's anything I can do about that!). :)

cue reader script

Post by GZoSt » Sat Jun 07, 2008 12:18 pm

Yes, it is your script - and first of all thank you for providing this, as well as your entire repository of scripts!
The script is fine as it is - displays the titles, enables direct access of any of them - there really isn't more that it could do as a script. The problem is just that - it is not a part of the program, not integrated with the hotkeys, the library etc., so nothing that you can do about it.
The only thing that could be fixed is this annoying active-X warning that comes up every time I start the script.

I'm wondering if there any way to implement representing of image+cue like a series of separate tracks with Winamp API. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with it so can anyone say something about?

Sorry for my English

Have you tried Almighty Cue Lord script? I think it's doing it.
Skins for MediaMonkey: Cafe, Carbon, Helium, Spotify, Zekton. [ Wiki Zone ].

Thanks! That's much better. But it still hasn't media library support so my question is actual yet. I realize that it's much deeper integration add trying to find out is it technically possible.

I'm adding vote for this wish. The cue support in the library is, in my opinion, the only missing feature in the MediaMonkey. Otherwise it's just perfect.
Actually I've found this as I was searching web whether there is anything new with cues in MM so that I could start to use it again.
Cue support as that in foobar2000 would be quite sufficient...

I would disagree with you, as I for example always prefer separated tracks, while crossfading again can make them whole.

Back in 2000 I've created my first CUESheet Reader/Editor in order to burn CDs. Even standard is straightforward trust me if we want to implement it correctly into MMW library structure it is way too complicated and risky. So until any major changes in MM happen (like MM5) and some basic handling (those behind the scene) is improved we are better this way than making things much more unstable.
