  • How to make MP3 button launch external app?

    I'm sure this is simple but I have no idea how to do it..

    How can I make the MP3 button in media car launch an external audio app - winamp for example? I don't want to use the embedded mp3 player.

    Thanks

    For your information, It's winamp who is used as engine by Mediacar for the MP3 player !

    You will find it into the Mediacar folder.

      Thanks for the reply - yeah I know it uses Winamp but itembeds it's use into the program. I was looking for more flexibility being able to specify the use of a fully external program. Nice job on the software though, a nicely rounded package with especially nice video tools - love the forced ratios options.

          Why dont you configure the GPS to launch an external program and point it to your mp3 player executable (4am, media player, or whatever external app you want). Then change the "GPS" skin/button to match you ext app! Worked for me. Simple yet effective...ugly, but deadly...

            Ahhh nice solution.

            Didn't think of that, but decided to go with Media Console instead which works well for my particular needs.
