    Embed a winamp plugin?

    I'm trying to gain access to DFX for minamp plugin while in RR so i figured to try to embed it - but how??

    I read the two FAQ on embedding but both call for the app to be launched with an .exe. In an old thread i read, Guino said it was easy (to him ofcourse ) to do it and it would work just like embedding a visualization but didn't elaborate or give an example - so i'm lost.

    DFX for winamp starts minimized when winamp starts and the class name is DFX_WINDOW_2006 (if i read it correctly in wininspector).

    I just don't understand how to launch it with a button without a .exe

    Would appreciate a nodge in the right direction. Thanks

    DFX (not to be confused with the DigitalFX skin) is a winamp plugin that starts along with winamp. It is a digital enhancer/eq.

    It starts minimized so there is no way to get to it while RR is taking up the whole screen.

    Here is what it look like..

    Ok...spoon feeding time...

    1. Create a screen for this to be embeded in(having a app defined area)
    2. pick a button in the skin somewhere and use this code to load the screen that you setup in step 1

    "Load;<name of skin file here(step 1) >;;;DFX 8 Winamp"

    3. Well-la...
    4. Enjoy!

    If you don't make it to step 4, you messed up somewhere, b/c it works on my desktop...

    But can you close it without closing winamp? Or does it just remain embedded until the next full shutdown as I do with Winamp Media Library and Winamp Video. (I use the library for shoutcast and sometimes I want to be able to listen to video while doing other things without interruption)

    Uh...ya, just exit that screen. If you exit that screen using the "close" cmd then it closes just the plugin and WA continues to run, or either using "ESC" or just going to another screen just hides the plugin till you go back to that screen...

    FYI, if you do use the "CLOSE" cmd, you also get a window telling you that the plugin will continue to process the sound

    If anyone here hasn't tried that DFX plugin, it's great for enhancing the quality of internet audio streams.

    Needless to say IT WORKED! Amazing how this kind a stuff is obvious to you experts; i never would have thought to use those 3 semicolons. Thanks (again)
