Guys,
Just wanted to see what you think would be the best while having PC in the car connected to the car stereo via this adapter.
I can see 3 options so far:

Existing WinAmp plugin:
Code:
Have predefined list of playlists you have to place on a removable or fixed disks
Remembers playing track for every disk
Restarts playing at the track it was playing before shutdown
Advanced PyCar plugin with smart playlists
Code:
Removable disk can be recognized either through label or checksum
If disk was played before, import saved playlists from fixed drive, otherwise import from the removable disk
If disk has no playlists- create playlists from all tracks on a disk
Supports only 4 playlists, buttons 5 and 6 are reserved for a special purpose
When button 6 is pressed once, it adds current track to a playlist 5 (favourites)
When button 6 is pressed twice, it adds current directory to a playlist 5
When playlist is playing and its number is pressed twice, removes the current track from playlist
When switch over to a next or prev track beeps one if track number >100 , twice if >200 etc
When disk is removed, remove all inserted playlists from playlists, stop any playing playlist and switch back to playslist that was playing before
Voice prompt aka PhatNoise
Code:
Removable disk can be recognized either through label or checksum
When disk inserted, restarts playing at the very last track played for the disk if available
If disk has no playlists- allow browse by directories/files
Every button have its own meaning:
    1-5 select up to 5 playlists, directories or tracks
    6 switch between modes: playlists, directories, videos, genres*, atrists*, albums* ( *when applicable )
    Playlists mode:
         voice says active playlist name
         When pressed < or > select the prev/next playlist and say its name, all other playlists are shifted up or down
         If pressed 1-5 once just select the playlist and say it name, selected playlist become active
         If pressed 1 twice starts playing the active playlist from the position it's been playing the last if available
    Directory mode:
         voice says active directory name
         When pressed < or > select the prev/next directory and say its name, all other directories are shifted up or down
         If pressed 1-5 once select the directory and say its name, selected directory become active
         If pressed 1 twice:
            If directory has other directories, process continues
            If only tracks are left, start playing the first track in the active directory

Please choose which behavior you like best so I can address that.
I really appreciate any feedback or ideas you might have as well.
Thank you,
Dmitry/

Would it be possible to have a plugin that sends configurable keystrokes? Like that one could control much of the software one would want... Wink

It can be done, but still you have write that custom behavior anyway.
But I got the idea.
Thanks.

Hi

I need a WindowsMediaPlayer-plugin or a plugin that sends keystrokes for the Car2PC-MBUS-Adapter. I think a keystroke sending plugin itīs the best because that can control all CarPC-software and more. Very Happy

Thomas

WMP plugin is pretty much ready.
As of keystroke plugin, it could be good idea, but then the information displayed on car stereo won't be accurate anymore. Which is a big disadvantage in many cases.
Even though it will also be released in couple of weeks.
