  • Input Devicefor Winamp

    Hi,
    I'm trying to complete project of Jukebox with PC inside working with Winamp, Standard LCD and Keyboard input.

    I'm searching for Winamp opening file according to a button switched, for example, if i want "Let it Be" i have to press 1, if i want "tutti frutti", i have to press 2, and that way for 50 Songs (means that i have to press 1 and 0 for son number ten).


    Please help me because i have no solution, or it's possible to try other playing software.


    Thanks

    Sounds like a job for a small VB app to me...

        Oliver.

        If I get it right, you want pushbuttons to interact with winamp.

        you can relatively easily interface 15 buttons/comport to winamp

        try this guide

          I had a Winamp plugin which did EXACTLY what you wanted, waaay back when I had V1 of my Carputer...

          Basically, all you needed was the numpad from a keyboard, and you could control everything. Press 8/2 for volume, 7/9 for searching through the track by 5 seconds, 1/3 for skipping 10 tracks at a time, 4/6 for prev/next track, 5 for play/pause, 0 for stop, - for shuffle on/off, and then use + then type the playlist number, then + again for it to change to that song, ie +628+


          I'll see if I can dig it up...it also is used to control a HD44780 based character LCD, if i remember correctly!

                You seems to understand what i need, but the problem is that i want to choose by entering a "code" , for example to have the fifth song i want to push 5, for the ten's one i want to press 1 and 0.
                This is for being in the same configuration as olds jukebox where you choose your song on a panel.
                I can use other software if you know one working with LCD HD...., let me know

                Thanks in advance

                  From that..I reckon you're gonna either have to:

                  Find a Winamp plugin that does that (proved not so successful)
                  Write a Winamp plugin that does that
                  Write a program which can take the input from a numpad and push that to Winamp.
                  Panic!


                  Good luck!!

                    There is a plugin for Winamp that will let you choose a track based on its position in a playlist. The downside is that you will have to have a printout of the list with you to find a song.

                    Basically, you hit the + key, type the number, then hit + again, and off it goes. I think I have it here if you're interested. I also have that plugin that drives an LCD character display and gives keypad control too.

                      Thanks for info, i tried to find it on winamp site but i don't succeed.
                      Please give me plugins name in order to stop this boring research for pleasure.


                      Thanks

                          What a pain in the ***! I could imagine looking over at my girlfriend and asking, " hun, can you play some <insert band name here>?" And her going into the glove box, instead of pulling out a CDCase, she pulls out a printout of my playlist.

                            Yes, I agree it is a pain, but how else could you do song selection with only the keypad? There is another plugin that turns the keypad into like a phone's keypad, so you hit 1 multiple times, through A then B then C then 1 again, hit + to move next etc. Now THAT'S a pain in the ***!

                            Better yet, create a master playlist, set Winamp to shuffle, and let it roll. Nuff said.

                              That's the one I was using, and described above

                              That was an awesome little plugin, everything being controlled by just a numpad
