    Voodoo Voice and MediaCar

    Do these two work together. I am under the impression that they don't becasue i installed Voodoo Voice 2.0 into the Plugin directory of MediaCar. Then i Run Winamp 5 in the root MediaCar directory and when i try to configure the plugin nothing happens.

    Any help?

    Well I guess i answered my own question. I installed the Voodoo Voice plugin in both the MediaCar winamp and a stand alone version of winamps plugin directory.

    The plugin installs correctly but when you go to configure it, nothing happens so i assume that it doesn't work. If anyone has gotten this to work let me know

    This is a very cool plug in!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to dig into it. I was already starting to check into ViaVoice ( i already own a copy..) For those that don't know it is a plug in for winamp that you can control by speaking. Here is the web site.

    OK. I tried it and it works great! When you install it you must specify a different install directory than the default. Media Car installs into the Program files directory by default so if you have not changed it, the install path will be..... C:\Program Files\MediaCar\Plugins
    I tried the version 1 but I am running XP and the 2.0 worked better. I am having a little trouble with the voice command "play something by <artist>" I may have to do a little voice training.

    I will have to try it in the truck now. I have a lot of back ground noise so it my not work in there.

    Here are a few of the voice commands from the documentation.

    begin play
    stop play
    next song
    switch to The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist
    play something by The Avalanches
    set volume 60 percent

    Wow... You got it to work...

    Let me tell you what happens when i install it and maybe you can help me.

    *I download the plugin
    *I install under the C:\Program Files\MediaCar\Plugins
    *I open up winamp (double click on winamp.exe in the media car directory)
    *I go to configure the plugin by Options-->Preferences-->Plugins-->General Pourpose. I highlight the Voodoo Voice plugin
    *I click on the configure button

    Nothing happnens???

    How do you configure it? How do you do the voice training?

    Where did i go wrong? Is there something else that i have to install? Can anyone help?

    if you installed version 2 there is nothing you can configure in the plug- in only version 1 does that. It looks like Kevin, the guy that coded this, quit working on the project about mid 2002. if you want to adjust the speech recognition settings, just goto the speech icon in the control panel. if you want to tweak the commands, edit this file in note pad:
    C:\Program Files\MediaCar\Plugins\Voodoo Voice\Default\default.psn

    Below is a samle of the text in the file. for examlpe if you want the computer to respond to another name, just adjust "WakeupCmd computer"
    to what you want, and save it. then restart media car.
    if you want to call the computer Jonny the make it read.

    WakeupCmd jonny


    PHP Code:
    Name        Default
    Description    Default Voodoo Voice personality
    Directory    
    default

    WakeupCmd    computer
    BEGIN
        WAKEUP
        PLAYWAV wakeup
    .wav
    END

    Command        begin play
    BEGIN
        PLAY
        RANDOM
            PLAYWAV goize1
    .wav
            PLAYWAV goize2
    .wav
        END
        SLEEP
    END

    well I CAN get the "switch to <song>" and the "play something by <artist>" to work. But only in winamp and not MediaCar. these 2 commands only work on what is currently in the play list. I wish I was better at programing so I could figure it out!

    I figured out how to get the "switch to <song> and "play something by <artist>" to work in both MediaCar and Media Engine. Let me know if you want to know how. It is SO FREAKIN' COOL!!!!

    Would anyone be interested if I expanded this app to control other things in MediaCar? Things like "open XM Radio" or "Open Navigation". I am not sure that I can pull it off, but I feel like I should contribute to all the hard work going on here.
