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 />
i tried your software and it worked well, but i only have 1 comport (laptop) can it be used with a usb-serial adapter perhaps?
or what about a program to accept inputs on modem?
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.
How do you control the second winamp instance? The Shutdown controller software actually tells RR to pause / resume.
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:
