Plugin Idea: Copy track info shortcut?

Post by doc » Tue Oct 20, 2015 12:18 am

Hey, I was wondering if you'd consider adding a 'now playing' keyboard shortcut, ideally something 'themable' like Foobar2000. You've got all the data already in the 'Inspector' window; it'd then just be a matter of copying the info into the clipboard.

Users could then choose the format of this information, for example:
%A - Album Artist
%a - Track Artist
%t - Track title
%n - Track number
%e - Time Elapsed
%r - Time Remaining
%l - Track Length
%y - Track Year
%Y - Album Year
%f - Format
%b - Bitrate

So maybe I'd want:

Now Playing: %A - %t (%Y) [%f %b]

...which would paste as:

Now Playing: Weezer - El Scorcho (1992) [FLAC 24-bit/96Khz]

or:

Now Playing: %A - %t [%e/%l]

which would paste as:

Now Playing: Weezer - El Scorcho [2:03/4:03]

It's a little silly, but I keep wanting to just quickly share what I'm listening to in various chat apps, so the idea of just doing command-option-n or something to spit this out would be great.

I'd like to bump this and offer a bounty of $100 USD if anyone is willing to write a plugin or update the app to support it. Thanks for a great audio player!
