    SlingPlayer Plugin

    SlingPlayer Update (10/15/10)

    Update/Change/Fix

    New SlingPlayer Skin (setup for DFX 4 or 5 but can be used with other skins as well)
    Changed/Fixed Remote Buttons
    Display Time
    Display Date
    Minimize SlingPlayer Button

    I have updated the SlingPlayer skin to match DFX but it can be used with other skins as well. I have also updated the "Remote" buttons as well. The buttons stop working so I had to change a few commands (Thanks to Mitch for his help).


    Instructions
    1. Make sure Slingplayer is setup to the default directory. Sling.exe will launch SlingPlayer and after 30 seconds will put the window in "Video Only" (no frame) and "Control" mode (quicker remote response) automatically.
    2. Make sure that your account is set to login automatically and you have run all updates.
    3. Place the Sling.exe file in default SlingPlayer directory
    4. Place the Skin and .png files in your /skinpath
    5. Setup a button for SlingPlayer (e.g. load;sling.skin;RUN;C:\Program Files\Sling Media\SlingPlayer\Sling.exe;SlingPlayer)

    NOTE: Window Name (SlingPlayer) can be different for your setup. Mine is set to "SlingPlayer - Navputer". So, when you setup your buttons, be sure to use the full window name (e.g. "ACTIVATE;SLINGPLAYER - Navputer||SENDKEY;^+{p}",""). This allows RR to activate that specific window; using only Slingplayer name may cause the remote not to work properly.

    Here are the remote button commands...


    Rewind symbol = Rewind
    Fast Forward symbol = Fast Forward
    Window Symbol = Video Mode Only (frame only)
    Gui = Show Program Guide
    List = SlingPlayer Options
    Exit = Close selection

    Select = Enter key/select
    Up Arrow = cursor up
    Left ArroW = Left cursor
    Right Arrow = Right cursor
    Down Arrow = Down cursor

    Pg Up = Page Up
    Menu = Remote Main Menu
    Info = Display Info
    Pg Down = Page Down
    Setup = Slingbox Directory
    Prev = Control Mode (quicker response for remote)
    Clear = Disconnect from Slingbox
    Enter = Enter key/Select
    Numbers 0-9 = Number press

    Channel - = Channel down
    Channel + = Channel Up
    Remote = Bring up Remote
    Power = Power on/off Slingbox




    Enjoy!

    Any replies....

    Is anyone using SlingPlayer with the carpc? If so, do you have it embedded in RR or using it as stand-alone app?

    Thanks for your comments...

    I use it as an external app in streetdeck and it automatically closes and opens streetdeck. Would probably work the same on RR.

    I think I did try to embed when working with RR a few months back and the problem was the auto remote on slingplayer. Controlling it in a smaller window was a bear. Think using the ext. app. is probably the best option.

    I have slingplayer but I use it outside of RR I have no idea how to begin to embed it but it sure would be nice to have it inside RR.

    It sucks right now because I have to switch back to RR before switching of my ignition so it goes in to hibernate if it were intergrated i could just turn the car off

    Any takers on making this happen?

    This is a great program and will be a nice add in RR. I spoke to Guino and right now slingmedia does not have a SDK out so, he wants to see if one will come out before looking at it as an option in the TV section of RR.

    Hurry up slingmedia.... or any one want to give this a shot?

    The window class is the issue since it grabs and holds the remote window on top.

    Hopefully a SDK will be out soon.

    Found Slingplayer Plugin but....

    Someone posted a slingplayer plugin using VLC here...http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...roup_id=189342

    It works fine but the beta2 file doesn't work(slow) and it has the buttons to change the channels. Hopefully, someone who is good with programming can make this work. This a big step forward. Also, check out the other downloads.

    Gee

    Has anyone got the Beta2 file working with Slingplayer? I got Beta1 file working fine. However, there are no buttons to change the channels.
