music lobby server variables -> mlhsplugin

Postby jackpod » Sat Sep 06, 2008 10:51 pm

I used to have this working, until I had to do a server upgrade, got everything else working, but forgot to get the variables from J River before the reformat.

What I had/want is artist, album and song title sent thru mlhsplugin to variables in Homeseer, I then take those strings and send them to my betabrite signs.

Its been a long 6 weeks re-ripping my 1300 cd collection (done finally) long story, but I had my database backed up, when I imported, I lost all my album directory structure, all I had was a single long list of 16,177 titles.

So does anyone have the command syntax on how to send the Music lobby server variables to HS. Thats the problem with such a good solid program as MainLobby, once you set it up, you forget what you did because you don't have to mess with it

Thanks

Jack

Jack I assume you are wanting to display the current playing song? If so, then in the MusicLobbyServer Plugin (in j river), put a MLServeCmd in the On song change field. That can be an MLHSPlugin command with the <<Artist>>..

This is described in the MusicLobby wiki.
