I made a shutdowncontroller for the comport awhile ago:
Maybe you can use that?
I am looking for software that could monitor a usb gamepad buttons (something like joytokey).
As an example, button 1 is connected to the ignition, when ignition is turned off, switch is closed, button 1 sends a global hotkey to winamp and winamp pauses or closes, then if ignition is turned on, button is released and winamp resumes.
A timer may be another option, so it shuts down in 5-30 minutes of inactivity.
Any idea where i could find or how i could make software like that?<br /><br />
ok, i bought a usb to serial adapter, i made the circuit and after an hour of ripping hair out, got it working (problem with addon pcmcia usb card, hooked it directly to onboard usb, works now)
I have it connected to my remote wire on my deck so it pauses winamp with my stereo.
I really like the winamp pause feature
I also use a second winamp install for video output for the headrest screen for my son to watch movies while we drive, which i renamed to winvid.exe for uice controls to not confuse them.
I was wondering if you had a way i could modify it as it would be nice to pause the other winamp, divx or any other media that may be playing at the time.
i don't actually use a frontend, i do everything through explorer as i have a remote control and wireless keyboard/mouse in my sunvisor. is there any way for me to change what application it pauses?
I added commands in the inifile to be able to control other software you can find latest version on the same location, also added a readmefile for the configuration file:
