    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

    note: if you have hard times in english, PM me. I'm from Québec and always willing to write in french.

    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

    Regards

    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.
