request for a skip-without-crossfade button

Post by wallstreetwalker »

hey,

i would very much like a script which would show a button or something to skip (go to the next song) without crossfading.

i 'm using sqrsoft advanced crossfading, sometimes i want a song to fade out when i click skip, but sometimes i just want it to stop immediately and start the next song.

i would also like the same with stop (with or without fading out)

here is how i think it could be done (i'm not sure if stop can be done like this)

i've set sqrsoft so that
when skipping it crossfades, but
on seeking it doesn't.
so if i skip and move the timeslider just a second (seek), crossfading stops.

could this be implemented in a script and made to a button ?

dunno about stop thoo.

i don't think this can be done by configuring sqsrsoft or MM so, please help

is anyone else interested in this?

you want a script to end sqrcrossfade at the click of a button, then move the song in seek mode for so many seconds then play the song again and turn on the sqrcrossfade back on?

and you want the same script to do the stop button the same way?

is that correct?

onclick = stop crossfade plugin, move timeline of song in seek mode for 15 seconds, start playing song and turn cross fade plugin back on.

how the rest of the code would work i don't know. unless you add a form button in to the mix and have it stop the cross fade but how would you turn on and off a plugin?

it could be done that way to, if it is possible to disable the crossfade plugin with a script.

but here is how i do it now:

i click 'next track', crossfading starts, now i move the timeslider like one second and crossfading stops (because crossfade on seek is disabled) so the songs starts playing immediately (in stead of having a crossfade).

i was wondering if this could be automatisized :-? (skip and move slider one second).

but ofcourse something more complex would be nice as well.
like:
1)disable crossfading
2) skip
3) enable crossfading again

dunno what would be the easiest way

This all hinges on whether you can switch the crossfading off, which surely depends on how you've set the crossfading up?

I'm not too familiar with the SQRSoft, but I think you can set skip to next track seperatly. So I think you can take the crossfading out of it. I advice you to check the website for help (don't know if it has any) and play with the configuration.

This simple 2 lines script does exactly what you do manually:

NextSongWithoutCrossfade.vbs (for in the Scripts folder)

Code: Select all

Sub NextSongWithoutCrossfade

    SDB.Player.Next
    SDB.Player.PlaybackTime = 0

End Sub

Entry for Scripts.ini:

Code: Select all

[NextSongWithoutCrossfade]
FileName=NextSongWithoutCrossfade.vbs
ProcName=NextSongWithoutCrossfade
Order=15
DisplayName=NextSongWithoutCrossfade
Description=NextSongWithoutCrossfade
Language=VBScript
ScriptType=0

What DirectSound crossfading playback does when the script (or the manual workaround) is started (both things at the same time):
- currently playing song fades out
- next song starts playback immediately (at the full volume)
However, I just want to say that "crossfade on play" and "crossfade on pause/stop" must be enabled, and "crossfade on seek" must be disabled.


What SQRSoft crossfading playback does when the script (or the manual workaround) is started (both things at the same time):
- currently playing song stops immediately (volume 0)
- next song starts playback immediately (at the full volume)

Conclusion: this workaround only works with SQRSoft crossfading. On DirectSound crossfading, it only works partially.

Sorry, you wanted a button. The following code will add a new "play next song" button to the standard toolbar.


NextSongWithoutCrossfade.vbs (for the Scripts/Auto folder)

Code: Select all

Sub OnStartup 

    SDB.UI.AddMenuItemSep SDB.UI.Menu_TbStandard, 0, 0
	
    Dim TBItem : Set TBItem = SDB.UI.AddMenuItem(SDB.UI.Menu_TbStandard, 0, 0) 
    TBItem.Caption = "Next Song Without Crossfade"
    TBItem.OnClickFunc = "NextSongWithoutCrossfade" 
    TBItem.UseScript = Script.ScriptPath 
    TBItem.IconIndex = 4

End Sub 




Sub NextSongWithoutCrossfade(TBItem)

    SDB.Player.Next
    SDB.Player.PlaybackTime = 0

End Sub
Cheers

Yes, adding

Code: Select all

TBItem.ShortCut = "Ctrl+B"
behind "TBItem.IconIndex = 4" should do the trick.

I say should because there were problems with shortcut keys some time ago. I don't know if it works now.

If it doesn't work, then use the following:


NextSongWithoutCrossfade.vbs (for in the Scripts\Auto folder)

Code: Select all

Sub OnStartup 

    SDB.UI.AddMenuItemSep SDB.UI.Menu_TbStandard, 0, 0 
    
    Dim TBItem : Set TBItem = SDB.UI.AddMenuItem(SDB.UI.Menu_TbStandard, 0, 0) 
    TBItem.Caption = "Next Song Without Crossfade" 
    TBItem.OnClickFunc = "NextSongWithoutCrossfade" 
    TBItem.UseScript = Script.ScriptPath 
    TBItem.IconIndex = 4 

End Sub 




Sub NextSongWithoutCrossfade(TBItem) 

    Call NextSongWithoutCrossfade_DoIt

End Sub



Sub NextSongWithoutCrossfade_DoIt

    SDB.Player.Next 
    SDB.Player.PlaybackTime = 0 

End Sub
Entry for Scripts.ini:

Code: Select all

[NextSongWithoutCrossfade] 
FileName=Auto\NextSongWithoutCrossfade.vbs 
ProcName=NextSongWithoutCrossfade_DoIt 
Order=15 
DisplayName=NextSongWithoutCrossfade 
Description=NextSongWithoutCrossfade
Shortcut=Ctrl+B 
Language=VBScript 
ScriptType=0

Code: Select all

Sub OnStartup 

    SDB.UI.AddMenuItemSep SDB.UI.Menu_TbStandard, 0, 0 
    
    Dim TBItem : Set TBItem = SDB.UI.AddMenuItem(SDB.UI.Menu_TbStandard, 0, 0) 
    TBItem.Caption = "Stop Crossfade" 
    TBItem.OnClickFunc = "StopCrossfade" 
    TBItem.UseScript = Script.ScriptPath 
    TBItem.IconIndex = 4 

End Sub 


Sub StopCrossfade(TBItem) 
 
    SDB.Player.PlaybackTime = 0 

End Sub

I love the MediaMonkey player, but it bugged me that the beginning of the next track always plays over the end of the last track. This feature is called "crossfading," but it was not clear to me how to adjust it. Here's the path to the crossfading settings...
Tools | Options | Output plug-ins | MediaMonkey DirectSound output | Configure
OR to turn crossfading off entirely, go to the Play menu and uncheck the option Crossfade.
