  • controlling winamp volume

    i had this working a couple of years ago, but with a v4 and the mdx i have no idea where to start.

    i started the ninja wizard.
    said i had one analogue port, and no digital outs.

    i have a skin with a single box.

    what settings do i need to change to control winamp?

    Do you want to control winamp or RoadRunner?

    All you have to do to control winamp is add a display button and change its down vote option to send keystroke.

      i am using winamp through road runner.

      my ideal would be to be able to control the windows (xp) master volume, is this possible?



      before i blow up another brain, a couple of quick questions on the wiring.

      i now have a v4 brain (previously had v3) looking at it it looks like there is a jumper to run it off 12v dc input, or 5v usb. is this true? is there any documentation on this. is it just a matter of moving the jumper? what are the pros and cons?


      analogue inputs.
      they seem to be marks up as +,-,AN.
      if i want to detect a digital switch do i jusrt connect a swicth between + and AN?
      if i want to detect an analogue reading from a potentiometer, do i just connect the potentiomemter to + and AN? ( if i measure the resistance of the potentiomemter i get between 0 and 1)
      I have another output on the pot that goes in reverse, 1 to 0 do i just ignore this or does this connect to -?)


      thanks.

        ok ignore all of the above i have a mdx skin that now displays the "volume" voltage. and also displays the voltage of the digital buttons that i want to ffwd, play, rewind in roadrunner/winamp.

        so i guess i need to put in the logic.

        can anyone point me in the right direction from here?

          hello again!

          right i've got it firing a "b" to ffwd winamp when i press my digital button. but it fires too quickly. as i press it it sends 3-4 "b's" so skips 4 tracks.

          how do i slow down the repeat rate?

            also, it only seems to work when winamp has focus... is this s setting?


            edit:
            it only seems to work when i have a screen i can type into.

            eg if i have the forum open in IE it doesn't work.
            if i have this screen "reply to thread" it does....

              Change the minimum vote time higher. Also turn auto-averaging off so the input doesnt "float" when nothing is pressed.

                You are probably using "send key to foreground". You need to use send key, and then enter the info for winamp's window frame.

                  hi thanks for your replies.

                  i'll have a rummage tonight for the minimum vote time. that sounds like it'll do the trick.

                  I am quite certain i used the "send key" rather than "send key to foreground" i found some old threads that said that i just needed to put "winamp" into the target ID. i left all the other fields blank, is this correct.

                    In the logic section where you draw out the functions, you can select it there. Each logic block can be different as well, so one button can be X seconds, another can be Y seconds, and etc.

                    That is true for older winamp. At the time, RoadRunner was suggested to use version 2.95, and that is what the program was setup for. If you are using the new version, you may have to use the target icon to select the window. After you choose send key, a little target appears, click that, and then a window pops up. Drag the target icon to winamp's window and it should capture most of the info it needs. I dont use anything but 2.95 in classic skin mode, so I don't know the details on what should popup.

                    Also I want to thank you for actually using the forums and searching. It really helps out a lot.

                      yep, i'm using winamp 2.95 (this too was on an old post). I'll have a good play tonight to see what's what.

                      i'll give the dragging of the target a go. will it matter that i am developing on my home pc, rather than my carputer?

                        It shouldnt matter assuming you have the same software.

                          same software (winamp 2.95, roadrunner etc), but one is on XP, one on vista. i presume this won't be an issue.

                            If you are using Vista you have to run it in Administrator mode. (Right click run as admin). Just being an admin on the computer is NOT enough.

                              hello, at home now.

                              i am in the logic diagrams, i have a timer (alarm clock item) that sets the dTime. is this the minumum vote time?
