Make album

This topic is about feature from playlist context menu Youtube Source Make album.

This functional is intended for the cases when the video contains whole album. Using info from MusicBrainz it is possible to split the video to album tracks (similar to cuesheets).

In simple case click Search button » select album » click Finish. By clicking Next button you can also edit generated cuesheet which will be used for this album.

Albums list has additional columns (right click on the list header).

Only a single release can be selected in albums list. If it is multi-disk release then there can be selected multiple disks within it. This is necessary when one video is represented by multi-disk release (example for this video).

In tracks list can be edited title and offset of each track. Editing track offsets here in some cases is more convenient than manual cuesheet editing (example).

Requirements and limitations

To make it work, %cuesheet% tag field should not be marked as spam in LargeFieldsConfig.txt file from foobar2000 application data directory.

Furthermore, field size limit should be large enough to keep the cuesheet. Component will show appropriate warning if this is not so.

Original playlist item should be kept anywhere in the playlists or you will get error Unsupported format or corrupted file at playback start.

Video should be seekable or you will get error Object is not seekable at playback start.
