Winamp plugin ? or maybe other idea to solve it
I have a problem which the solution i came up with , is pretty hard to implement [at least for me, as i have no knowledge in it].
It goes like this:
I'm building a KIOSK mounted computer with touch.. now unfortunely that wall lacks a tunnel to the main audio receiver. Meaning i cant connect it to the room's speakers! thus making it useless except for head phones..
Theres a Multimedia computer connected to the Receiver [which is connected to the room's speakers] and is also connected to the network, like the kiosk.
I'm going to put Media Engine on the kiosk as a FE, it uses Winamp as the sound player [also for movies/video clips i think] now the idea i came up with is that a plugin for it will be written that all it does is Send VIA LAN commands to other computer on the NETWORK that will do the playing for it.
It should work even if you foreward/rewind,pause,mute etc...
If you have a different idea or so please let me know as im clueless...
some notes to be said:
a) The KIOSK plays all the songs/vids/etc.. off a Server in the network
b) The Multimedia computer ISNT the KIOSK's screen or has any connection with.
c) A drawing of the room and its important periphrals is attached for your convinience..
I know its complicated but theres no way to pass a coax\even 9 mm cable to the kiosk from the other points! thats why the solution has to be creative
welp i've found the perfecut plugin but still got a problem!
the plugin [there's only one that does this thing to my amazement] is
WWW.NetSync by lars werner [stopped developing it]
the problem is this plugin works only with a premade playlist that is loaded to winamp rather than dynamic one that Media engine [my front end] uses...
so i mailed him but still ... clue less DAMN!
