    i'd be very interested in hearing about this ... let me know what you find.

    i was thinking it'd be great to hookup one of the voice command packages so i could enter GPS destinations without the keyboard ... etc.

    OK, you guys double check the procedure for me to make sure I covered all my bases. If it looks good I will make a new post so everyone will know what it is.

    1. First click Here to download VooDoo Voice. Warning! It is large, 46.5MB.
    2. Make sure MediaCar is installed and working.
    3. Run the VVoice20Alpha.msi file you downloaded.
    4. Change the install location to “C:\Program Files\MediaCar\Plugins\”
    5. continue the install with the defaults.
    6. Click close when it is finished.


    At this point most all the voice commands will work in MediaCar. But to get the “switch to <song>” and “play something by <artist>” command to work takes some strange tweaks.

    Unfortunately this problem is a conflict with how VooDoo Voice finds a song and how MediaCar Stores them when it shuts down. But, heres how to get around it.

    Warning! This is only good until you close MediaCar. Then you have to do step 5 below again.

    Hopefully we can work on the app and get this corrected.

    Basically Voodoo voice must have a full and matching .M3U play list in the MediaCar directory. Here how to do it.

    1. Open your regular full version winamp. Add any song to the play list that you may want to hear ( I just selected all of them) Then save the playlist as winamp.M3U to the directory that your mp3s are located in so you can find the file when browsing your MP3’s in MediaCar.

    2. Open the MediaCar Setup Utility and be sure to set the Auto Launch Module to Audio. It will not work completely if this is not enabled.

    3. when you click OK in MediaCar setup it should open MediaCar > Click List to browse the MP3’s > Click the down arrow until you see winamp.m3u in the list. Double click the file to launch it and listen.

    4. Click Exit in the player window, Then Exit in the main window to close MediaCar.

    5. Then copy the Winamp.m3u file you saved in the mp3 directory and over write the one in the C:\Program Files\MediaCar directory. Start MediaCar and it should go right to the mp3 player, load a huge song list, and respond to the song name related commands!


    Here is a list of the commands:

    computer - use this to get the PC to listen to you. Can be changed to anything
    begin play
    stop play
    next song
    previous song
    switch to <song>
    what is this?
    increase volume
    decrease volume
    set volume <percent> percent
    mute
    play something by <artist>
    something else
    go back to that last one

    Which version of Winamp does Voodoo VOice work on? I can't find any specifications on the guys website... all I know is that I tested it out on Winamp 5.01 and Winamp 2.91 and it doesn't work with either version...

    It works with any version from 2.x up. Check your mic setup. there is a mic setup wizard in the control panel that will help you configure it. also be sure you are starting the correct instance of Winamp. if you installed voodoo voice in the default location "C:\Program Files\Winamp\" then you must start winamp from that directory.

    This program is so damn badass. Anyone know how to just say a phrase and it plays a specific wav? Also, I know this program is very limited, but is there another software out there that will do something similar?

    You mean like after you say "computer" it plays that funny computer blippy sound, you are wanting to change it to another sound? or do you mean you want it to go play a certain song like "switch to Slayer - Hell Awaits"

    checkout this thread.
    if you want a different voice on the responces after your commands, I put a zip fill with a UK english voice responces in there. Just overwrite the ones on your pc. When you wake it up it will say "Yes Sir?" and other cool stuff. I named mine "Niles"

    Im referring to just saying something and it responds with a speified command.
    LIke if I said "Rick james" it would say "This is rick james ***** hahahaa". Only cause I specified the command. I dont want it to do Anything but play a wave that I specifiy to a pre-specified command. Seems as if the code wants it to run a command.

    Is there any way to disable the wakeup command so you can just talk without saying it all the time?
