Thanks for these new improvements Audiosoft. The songlist displays faster, that's a good thing!

Thanks Audiosoft! Looks good

In the last update thread I asked "Also I sent you an e-mail about 2-3 weeks ago I believe. Have you received it? Thanks" and never got a response.

rllercstr7,

Thats a good idea for keyboard control but unfortunately the only way to use the songlist and album list with keyboard is by using <- and ->.

Can you map keys on remote to focus the different sections?

Keyboard Shortcuts:

1 Focus Playlist
2 Focus Song List/Homepage
F6 Focus Album List

When you start with F6 you can then use <- -> and enter on the remote to select an album and then use <- -> to use the songlist without having to press 2

Yeah I have been playing around with it for quite a while and it works ok if I just program the right and left action to the up and down buttons on the remote. I also do have buttons setup to switch the focus between the different windows of eJukebox (song list, artist list, etc). There are just some quirks that prevent it from actually being used, such as when pressing the up and down arrow in the artist list it scrolls through multiple names making it very hard to select the one that you want and also the inability to move the letter slider with the arrows. In the song list there is no way to use the play now function as the highlighted part only goes down the middle column to add it to the que. Thank you for the reply :D

Well the artistlist currently has no keyboard selection support besides jumping to a letter so that would be tough.
To play the song highlighted in the songlist you can use CTRL+Q instead of Enter.

I do like the 'arrows only' idea ... I will see what I can do to get it closer to that.

I agree with rlailey, this is one feature I have been hanging out for. I know its nit picking but it would be great if you could create a video border consistent with your new EJ skin, at the moment itís a light blue it would be cool if it was a dark blue, grey or black.

The only problem Iíve encountered with the latest build is with your new option to play ejukebox internally & in particular with the Volume Logic plug-in for windows media player. Iíve always used it with winamp & in my opinion itís essential if you want your mp3s to play at a consistent volume. I would like to play my eJukebox with the windows media player (internal) setting on; however when doing so Volume Logic (Iím trialing the windows media player version) simply doesnít respond. The problem seems to be that it doesnít recognize that the media player is in use.

Iíve tested the media player internal option with other plug-ins that I donít normally use, such as; SRS Audio Sandbox and it works fine.

I would appreciate if you could find a solution to this problem; in the meantime I will have to continue using winamp.

Keep up the great work!

Of course I like the video

Audiosoft,
I love that you support WMP, and our Video Jukebox works with it, but, the video plays only on the playlist. I use a two monitor in dual veiw setup with eJ on the left and a whole screen video on the right. I can drag the video window over to the video monitor, and expand it so it is full screen, but on the next song change, it goes back across to the eJ window and fits itself in the play list. Can I stop that? I want the video to stay full screen on the second monitor track after track.

It works fine in winamp, stays full screen and everything.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Don

Dyno Don,

For the next update I will make it so the window stays the same position (does not take it out of fullscreen) when you play videos back to back.

Fantastic

I will wait and quit trying, thanks!

With winamp in our video jukebox, we start eJ, it starts winamp but no video, we click winamp once in the tray and it returns the video window, over in the second monitor. We then double click the video to make it full screen. Options in the video panel in winamp allow you to "not close the window after" and that keeps it full screen and on monitor two. Being able to use WMP directly and not try to get winamp to play all these different formats will be wonderful.

Are you planning on adding a feature that detects videos (or ALL files in a given directory)? Currently we have to add the videos one at a time to the playing winamp window to get eJ to "see it" and add it to the db. We may not be able to add by dragging in WMP. An option to add every file (regardless of extension) when adding new songs would be great!

Thanks!

yes! now that eJukebox can use WMP for video I plan to add the ability to drag videos files directly to the eJukebox playlist to import them for the next update....possibly also adding a checkbox option to the database updater to search for .avi, .mpg, .wmv video files.

I wonder...do you think it would be better if the video showed up over the now playing cover? I think I could make it totally hide the video border and titlebar until you mouse over the video so it looks seemless and is the same size as the cover.

An option for either?

I don't run it that way, but I think I would rather see what is next and not the static cover.

And thanks again, Audiosoft, for addressing our concerns!

This will be great... (instead of adding a list of accepted extensions, why not all? Let us decide what to have in the directory eJ searches in). Just my 2 cents

edit: But I guess some folks have info files and such in there too, maybe not the best idea. Let me know if you would like a list of extensions we have here.

Audiosoft, Personally I agree I think that would be great to show the videos over the now playing cover. Even if I wonder if the square shape is the best for videos? Maybe a rectangle would be possible? But I must confess that I don't use very often eJukebox for video, so maybe Dyno Don will be more perspicacious on that..

I use two large monitors, side by side. The left has a full screen eJ running. The left has full screen music videos playing. There is no video in the eJ side, all the video is on the right.
My video card (nvidia Geforce 6600) has twin outputs. The DVI goes to a standard PC monitor on the left, the Component output goes to the TV on the right. They call it dualveiw. Instead of clone you have two separate screens pannable by the mouse.

OK well I will try to get the video over the cover. So far I have added the video drag and drop support for .mpg, avi and .wmv. Also it now works good so that the window does not resize and does not leave fullscreen when viewing videos back to back.

Dyno Don, I would apreciate that list of extensions you have that actually are playable with the internal WMP player.

Also...when you right click the ejukebox wmp video and set it to fullscreen it goes to the right monitor without a problem for you right?

With the right decoders installed in windows, we play:
.MPG (VCD, SVCD, DVD, etc)
.avi
.wmv
.m2v
.mpeg

Hmm, less than I thought. By far mostly mpg with only a few of the last two.

No, it doesn't. When first started the player window is so small all you can see is the blank title bar. And it is hidden behind eJ. I grab it and resize it up so I can see it and move it to the right. I then right click and make it full screen. When the song ends it snaps back into the playlist window. If I right click that and choose full screen it goes full screen in the left covering everything. The right screen has nothing. It needs not to come back to eJ. I can deal with the first move and resze. We have been doing that for years with winamp. But if it goes away from the big screen we have nothing. I should also add the video is split to three or more monitors in my gameroom so when they go back to wallpaper, you know :) .

Just a question Dyno Don: Concerning wmp and videos, don't you experience problems with DRM?

wmp even locks some of my mp3s!! :( Luckily Winamp exists.. :)

It would be a problem if our files had that on them.

We create almost all of them ourselves.

OK.. thanks Dyno Don.

If Audiosoft improves eJukebox for videos, I think I will be tempted by music videos too..

Give this ejukebox.exe a try.

-updates the internal video player video window so that it shows up borderless over the now playing cover
-allows you to drop video files from explorer onto the eJukebox playlist to add them.
-click the video to show the window border and you can move or resize it.
-go full screen by right clicking or double clicking the video when using Vista

it will still say 4.53 on the splash screen but it should have the updated video features

do you like being able to move and resize the window?
or should it only show the video over the now playing cover (when not fullscreen)? let me know what you think

It works!

Audiosoft,
I had to mess around with the Video Cards Control panel a bit, but I got the video to stay full size on the left screen. Even after song changes. As a bonus I also have a movable resizable window with the video in it too. I can have both or make it so small you can't see it. I do have a few problems tho. The video is squished a bit and some don't play. Both of these are my problems, not the eJ. I will get it right, but wanted to share it is working pretty good. I will update later after I try some more things.

Thanks!

Audiosoft, I realizes you are concentrating most of your efforts on the video playback feature and Iím grateful for the progress youíve made in this area, however, I was just wondering if you had any plans on fixing Volume Logic plug-in incompatibility issue for a future build?
