  • Funny bug- I embedded Internet explorer to music player!

    Right this is what happened (on home laptop)

    Had RR in background doing it thing- playing music with Milkdrop and thought to myself why not check for milkdrop updates

    so opened up IE--> google---> entered "winamp milkdrop" and pressed search

    Guess what?All by itself it kinda embedded (alt+ printscreen shows as same program!) the page (same window title maybe?)



    Tried changing the web page but then visualisation appears again- clicked cross on visualisation and IE re-appeared and now can play at will



    Funny and perhaps usefull?

    (incase anyone wonders- songs are from UK band Keane Hopes and Fears album)

    It's not really a bug it's cause thw IE window has the same name that it embeds

    it happens in mediacar 2

    I use to use it to surf the net and play games but having just 1 button for a program to embed is useless.

    It's why i changed to neo media centre as i can add any amount of programs

    I have seperate buttons for diff emulators like snes nes etc webbrowser and a few other tiny apps embedded.

    I'm sure RR will have the feature in the future

      RR has the option to load any application you want, from any screen, at any time, enbbeded or not.

            Hmm........

            RR or NMC

            I'll have to look into RR as i thought you only had cloned the Mediacar Design and haven't added any extra's in yet.

            Very fast work :P

                Who uses mappoint anymore lol

                I think i'll stick NMC for my default frontend and use RR on the composite screen in the back (dual screen setup )

                I do have 1 question do you use winamp to play the audio files?

                Also im guessing you use media player for the video player?

                Why i ask is I need to be able to output to a different soundcard in the back.

                With winamp i can change the audio output to soundcard 2 but with video I can't as i havent found anyway for video to be played through winamp while embedded etc.

                Thats the only problem i have

                I'm asking this as im at work and I can't search for the answer just give quick replys now and then before my other co-worker comes back to her desk

                  Wianmp=Yes (because it allows for plugins etc)
                  Windows Media Player=No (it sucks)
                  You should be able to select which card to output MP3 sound to in winamp preferences. For Video, you must not usethe built in player and change MPC's settings of sound output (it even supports SPDIF output). But once you make those changes, you must copy the settings from your mplayerc.ini into MPC.INI (RR's folder).
