foobar2000

Skip Track

By: Case

Allows you to skip tracks that match a specified search query. By default the component will skip all files with RATING set to 1. The query is configured in Preferences -> Tools -> Skip Track.

Starting from version 1.5 time expressions are supported. For example to skip all bad or recently played files you can use the following query: %rating% IS 1 OR %last_played% DURING LAST 8 HOURS

Skip query also offers $rand() field to generate random number from 0 to 2^32-1. %playlist_name% returns the name of the playlist where the current file is played from. And %playback_order% returns the playback order name.

The component also offers functionality to skip only parts of a track. To utilize the partial skipping set a tag field SKIP with timecodes that you want skipped. For example SKIP=0:00:00-0:01:25 (or simply SKIP=-0:01:25) to skip the first 85 seconds.

This version is for foobar2000 v1.4+. Older version for foobar2000 v1.1+ can be found on the home page.

Current version: 1.28, released on 2020-06-22

Change log:

  • Changed behavior with "Repeat (track)" playback order. Now manually selecting a skippable track will allow the track to play once but not continue looping.

Works with foobar2000 v1.4 alpha and newer
