@BRTPOB, Thanks a lot for the feedback, i updated
foobar.py and fixed the authentication issue where missing username and password in configuration caused an error.
Regarding the entity card, could you please attache a screen shot? are you using lovelace UI? i’m asking since i havn’t yet given it a try (I dont use the UI much) and not sure what it looks like. i use the old large media player card and it shows the entity name, album art including the artist and title info with some media control buttons.
Re, the track info, this is fetched via HTTP using the foobar2000 foo_httpcontrol plugin.

This page provides more info about this and also explains what happens when a certain piece of info or metadata is missing.
You could try changing fields in
config file like
%album artist% or
%track artist% to experiment with it.
