  • questions concerning cd playing

    Hi everyone,
    a question:
    Is there a way for RR to be aware that a cd is inside the player. I know there are two indicators that state about inserting or removing a media, but if I turn on computer with a cd already inserted... How can RR be aware of it?

    Second: When I insert a cd, I can add the tracks to the current playlist, but when I remove it, the tracks stay on the playlist. Is there a way to remove them as I remove the cd? Like a way to remove from playlist all tracks that doesn't exist using "exist;path+filename" indicator for instance.

    Thanck you in advance for your answers.
    Kind regards
    Fabien.

        There are a couple new events in RR, that were added about maybe... 6-8 months ago or so, cant remember when exactly hehe.

        "ONMEDIAINSERT" Fires when a DVD/CD is inserted into the MediaDrive
        "ONMEDIAREMOVED" Fired when the DVD/CD is removed from the MediaDrive

        You can put those commands in the Exectbl.ini to fire something when a disk is inserted for instance.

        "ONMEDIAINSERT","load;PlayCDChoices.skin"

        When a Disk is inserted, you can then determine the type of disk with the following variable:

        "mediatypeinserted" - used by "ONMEDIAINSERT" event, 0 = unknown, 1 = dvd, 2 = audio CD

        Based on that variable, you can set different events to load either the DVD skin, Music skin ect....

          First, I would like RR to be aware of a cd already being in the player.

          But what I mainly want to do is remove the cd items from the playlist when the cd is removed.
          I know I could make a custom list with the files on the cd and then remove them by comparing them to my playlist, but it's a lot of code for a simple task.
          So what I would like is to be able to remove the missing files when the cd is removed.
          I managed this with this code: "ACTIVATE;Winamp||SENDKEY;%{Del}". But if winamp's main window (the player) is selected, it doesn't work. So I need to be able to activate winamp's playlist window.
          I actually moved this thread in the skin forum.

          Thanks a lot for the reply anyway.
