Recommendations requested

Postby yzpmpgq » Sat Aug 10, 2013 1:28 pm

I have a wedding for my daughter at our house in 1 month. I already have speakers in the yard running off a PC (used for Halloween, Christmas, etc), BUT since I am the one walking her down the "isle", I need to design a simple interface on my touchscreen for someone to use. Press 1 button for this song, 1 button for this one, etc and then a way to control the volume. Any suggestions?

By the way, I already run the music and sounds off a client PC and everything is ML4...

Give someone an iPad and a scene with two buttons. "Play this" then "Play that" with a volume slider and mute button off to the side.

That is what i had in mind, but haven't found a simple command to launch a specific song. Do I have to use the MusicLobby|AppendTrackNext~{{music_selectedalbum_track1_trackid_{{clientname}}}}~{{music_activesource_{{clientname}}}} type command and define what those variables are?

I was hoping for a simple MusicLobby|Play~songname or something similar.

Use

MusicLobby|AppendTrackPlay~<<TrackID>>~<<MusicZone>>

You can get the trackid by looking at the server variables being created when you browse the album the song lives in. Once you know that then the command becomes

MusicLobby|AppendTrackPlay~12345~1

Look in the Musiclobby MLServer variables and find the playlist that you want. It will have a number associated with it. Use that number along with, MusicLobby|AppendPlaylistNext~5~1, where in this example 5 is the playlist id number and the 1 is the Musiclobby zone.

Hope this helps.
