Hi. Love you're K-Steel stuff. Probably have everyone. Not trying to upset anyone, but is it possible to make a media player with Winamp or Musicmatch. I , for some reason, am not that crazy about WMP9. Just a suggestion. Keep up the superb work. Love it. Peace. Hippie

Comment #3 Sunday, August 29, 2004 9:36 PM
That's one of my fav suites
Comment #4 Monday, August 30, 2004 12:46 PM
Very nice!

Just a couple more objects, and I'll can cover every bit of my desktop with some kind of K-TEK thingie LOL

Beautiful work, as always!

This is the best media player object I've seen yet. I'd love to see a widget of this.
Comment #6 Tuesday, August 31, 2004 3:00 AM
K-TEK is sure one of the best suite of the year !!!BRAVO!!!
Comment #7 Tuesday, August 31, 2004 4:21 PM
my nortan antivirus detected a {malicious} script what gives
Comment #8 Tuesday, August 31, 2004 5:33 PM
Thanks to everyone who commented who isn't annoyed

musicman1126 - you can take my word for it that there is nothing malicious about the script in this object and enable it in your norton av config...or...not, I guess
Xav73 - thx alot
Frogboy - widget coming up, just adding some widget specific functionality like systray tooltip info...
Aleatoric - surely now with the tabbed dock background you can stretch that out to cover your entire desktop in one go
Cheers BoXXi
4letterword - your wish is my command...er...well, within reason of course
danillo - hehe, thanks alot
truebruno - not quite everything, but as soon as I get it to walk the dog and fetch the shopping I will update asap
Hipppie - not sure about musicmatch, but I may try a simple winamp skin. By simple I mean WA 2

Awesome work Tiggz!
Love it...!

How about adding the album cover display?
Comment #10 Wednesday, September 01, 2004 3:30 AM
Have you thought of adding an alarm clock function to the media player
Comment #11 Friday, September 03, 2004 6:23 AM
dragonkiss - yeah I like that idea, maybe in a future update
DigitalCHET - whilst vbscript allows a great deal of access to the functionality of wmp there are some things it apparently can't do, or if it can I couldn't find it despite a long time trawling through the windows tech libraries. An example is visualisations, I wanted to add the ability to cycle thru or choose visualisations. At the moment it just uses the visualisation last in use by wmp proper. However, I will continue my tireless research!
Comment #12 Friday, September 10, 2004 12:24 PM
I bow in your presence, This is the best media player object I've seen and the same goes for the rest of your stuff.
BUT where are the Amber & Green Face plates to match your other K-Tek objects? or am I just missing it? hehe (Also thanks for keeping it FREE) Your work Rockz.
Comment #13 Friday, September 10, 2004 1:49 PM
yikes, I've been rumbled LOL
hopefully I can add the colour switching in an update
Comment #14 Friday, September 24, 2004 10:32 PM
Awesome work man, is there a way to make the playlist display longer though? I hate having to scroll through 200 songs when only 10 show up at a time
Comment #15 Saturday, September 25, 2004 7:15 PM
Yeah Jaxer - in fact I was thinking of making the playlist part resizeable in an update. I use this object (or rather the widget version) as my media player of choice, so anything to make it more user friendly stands a reasonable chance of making it into an update...at some point
Comment #16 Monday, September 27, 2004 12:13 PM
Mine too man, I've always been a winamp guy myself, but I also like having everything I need/want/use incorporated into my DX themes. Since not all of the winamp controls work anymore, I've switched to your media player. It's easier than using WMP 10 (maybe I'm dumb, but it's hard as hell for me to navigate and do stuff with it, anything I accomplish is usually an accident)

Plus I can make it look anyway I want it to

Comment #17 Monday, September 27, 2004 4:07 PM
excellent tweakage Jaxer

This object has so many features built into it that if (when!) I make more media players I will almost certainly start off with this one as a base. One of the only downsides I cans ee is that you can't rregister it with windows to make mp3s open up automatically in it, which is why I added the drag and drop thingy. I generally use drag and drop whatever media player I'm using anyway, I'm just an explorer man I suppose, so using this object is not a big step for me. What might be quite nice is the ability to add bookmarks so that you can quickly open up explorer to defined folders for dragging and dropping music files. Also the playlist functions can be extended a bit.
Comment #18 Sunday, November 28, 2004 5:49 PM
This is a great object but I've been getting an error every time I try to load a playlist from the dropdown
Line: 131
(not available)
anybody else getting this error
Comment #19 Wednesday, December 29, 2004 10:47 PM
Yes...there is a bug in the lstPlaylist script. After that line place an "On Error Resume Next" statement. That hopefully will fix it, as it did for me. The actual problem was that I had a playlist in my WMP "My Playlists" that had been removed from the destination it was pointing to. The script bombed because it tried to access the .Name property on a nonexistant object. You should check all your playlists to make sure they are valid.

On another subject, I am running into what appears to be another bug in that the volume control slider seems to "jump out of its track". I can move it above the slider track, way to the right beyond the slider track, etc. Not sure what to do about that one yet. Have not investigated it.

Question for Tiggs:

Any reason why sending a "Command executed" from another object to the wmp_pb_back or wmp_pb_forward objects results in double execution (that is to say, the next or previous command being executed twice by the player)?
