Clickable ratings#


The behaviour of clickable ratings depend on the presence of foo_playcount. When installed, Playback Statistics will be used. Without it, RATING tags are written to your files.


The features described below require component version 3.4.23 or later.


  • Variable height group headers with album art. Right click the header bar or scrollbar to change options/turn off grouping.
  • Cover art or custom image as background supported (including a blur effect).
  • Smooth scrolling.
  • Change colours and fonts in foobar2000 Preferences > Display > DefaultUI or ColumsUI.
  • Alternatively, you can configure independent custom colours from the right click menu.
  • You can also enable dynamic colours extracted from the front cover of the playing item.
  • Use Ctrl+T to toggle the info bar.
  • Use Ctrl + mouse wheel to zoom.
  • Use Ctrl+C, Ctrl+X, Ctrl+V to copy/cut/paste using the Windows Clipboard. Clipboard contents can now be pasted in Windows Explorer.
  • Playlist search behaves similarly to the native foobar2000 playlist search where matching items are highlighted in the playlist. Press F3 to jump to the next result.


  • This is very basic and is in no way equivalent to a proper playlist viewer.
