Foobar2000 Plugin Adds Windows 7 Shell Integration

Windows 7 only: We've already shown you how to add Jump Lists to Winamp, use them in iTunes 9, and now there's a plugin that adds full support for Jump Lists and taskbar controls in foobar2000.

Installing the plugin requires simply unpacking the zip file to the components folder inside your foobar2000 installation directory and restarting the player—the controls should show up immediately by hovering your mouse over the taskbar button or accessing the Jump List with the context menu.

There are also a number of configurable options found in the preferences panel, allowing you to disable certain context menu items or disable Aero Peek when using the thumbnail view. It's a slick addition, and in our testing, works extremely well. The foobar2000 Windows 7 shell integration plugin is a free download for Windows 7 users only. Thanks, Juliana Peña!

    Foobar2k has always been a personal favourite. If you're not using it and don't mind spending 30 minutes customising and perfecting every part of it, it will really pay off.

      Ever since i found foobar, other media players just dont cut the mustard. It has never crashed on me, or even become unresponsive, and has never been a hinderance to other running apps... *glares at iTunes*
