Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on March 29, 2004, 10:23:48 AM
Ok folks, I have a new MP3 dvb available of all of you who like to play MP3 and wave files from your computer, but don't like that window media player window and best of all, it uses very limited system resources, only 1.2MB of memory on average. (Winamp uses 26MB, Windows Media Player uses 16MB)
A simple toolbar menu is loaded in AutoCAD, then you simply select the play button to select a file to play, pause to pause the file in play, and stop to stop it completely.

It can be downloaded here (http://theswamp.org/lilly.pond/KEB/CadAMP/CadAMP.zip)

Feedback please.....

Very nice Keith!!  :dood: I've been trying to make my work computer more of a "workstation" and not a "jump-between-programs" station.  I didn't know Win-Amp took up more resources than Media Player did, either.  If I had one suggestion, it would be for a search bar, or something similar.  Awesome, nonetheless  :twisted:

Maybe... just maybe.... I can implement something of that nature.... We'll see...
Lets see how many other people use it...

I al looking at making it play Winamp playlists (B4S) and entire folders, also, I am looking at the possibility of rewind and fast forward ... rather like a skip ahead and/or skip back... but I don't want to get it too GUI heavy since that will significantly increase the memory requirements.

This is sweeeet, Keith!
Works a treat, as our friends 'cross the pond would say.....
The scan/ffwd/rev option would be cool too, but not if it's gonna get top-heavy.

Well,  if you want to know the truth, it can also be used in Microstation....Excel, Word, and ANY VBA enabled program....You just need to export the DVB to a BAS file then import it into the VBA enabled application.

Now that is better isn't it.....

You can now create sound events using mp3 files in any VBA enabled application...just by using the MCI command calls.

I loaded it up at work today and I must say it's very nice. A playlist of sorts would be nice as would looping (when a song ends it restarts it). Maybe even an option to set modemacro to the current song playing?

If you want any help with any of this let me know. You've already done the hard part and the rest should be pretty easy.
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on March 30, 2004, 04:53:43 PM
I actually thought of the modemacro thing. It will be pretty easy to implement, I also have figured out for the most part, the ability to adjust the location of the file playing.. by either moving a slider forward or reverse. I am having a bit of difficulty setting the slider position, and I would like to set a timer to move it while it is still visible, but I don't want the slider control to be visible always, this would create overhead, and I don't want overhead.

So essentially I have retrieved the length of the file in milliseconds, retrieved the current position in the file, divided the current position by the length (to get a percentage done) then multiplied it by 100 (to get a whole number)...
Then attempted to set that value to the slider control... but no go...
I may have to set it in the slider initialization stages...
I also set the changed event of the slider to close the form. That way there is no buttons to press. I also need a timer so if the user does not change the slider, it disappears. This could be a variable the user can set to display it for say 5 or 10 seconds... I see alot of other possibilities, but I have to take it slowly...since I am essentially doing it in free time (which is a premium).

If you could create a macro function to parse a b4s file (xml on steriods) that would return an array of the file names (and paths) that would be great.
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: TR on March 30, 2004, 07:19:05 PM
I'll work on that macro tomorrow at lunch if I have time.
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on March 31, 2004, 12:01:38 AM
Ok, to keep everyone up to date on this... tonight I added the following.....
Popup slider control, to position the song at any location
Modemacro showing the current file playing...
Midi support
I am still working on a bug introduced by the length extraction of a MP3 file. It seems the length reported and the length assigned by the timer is not the same. I was presumtuous perhaps to think that the timer milliseconds would correspond to the MP3 milliseconds returned.
I also have to add the modemacro resetting if the user closes the current file, and to kill the timer in that case as well.

As soon as I get a b4s module I will make it loop through the list of files..
Preferrably it will be a function returning the list of songs (with paths) as an array to the calling function.

I was able to find this by accident today, maybe it might help somewhere.

Code: [Select]

Post by: Keith™ on March 31, 2004, 03:32:57 PM
Another issue is whether you are using VB6 or VB5. If you have VB5 then you will need to make a few modifications to the code.

Namely, you will need to replace all occurences of

AddressOf

with

MyAddressOf

and enclose the argument in quotes.
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: TR on April 01, 2004, 12:16:39 AM
Keith:

Here's the deal: I honestly don't know how to create a function that returns an array (unless you can assign an array to a function that's supposed to return a string(I've never tried)), so the best thing I can do is return a string that you'd need to run the split() function on. If this is acceptable let me know.

Also, I don't know where you're getting .b4s files from. I have winamp 5 and the only playlist formats it supports are .m3u and .pls (which seem fairly easy to parse). Is a .b4s file a windows media player playlist? If so, could you upload one to the lilypad so I can take a look at it?
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on April 01, 2004, 08:04:25 AM
It is a winamp 4 playlist
The file is xml so the parsing should probably be about the same.

I would expect that you can create a string array then return that string, but you would need to test it to be sure.
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: TR on April 06, 2004, 06:04:24 PM
Keith:

I still don't have a .b4s file to work with but here are two functions I created to read a .m3u and a .pls and return the songs in an array. The .bas file can be downloaded here (http://theswamp.org/lilly.pond/riley/ModPlaylist.bas).

the m3u function:
Code: [Select]

'This function reads the contents of a WinAMP m3u file and returns the
'file paths in an array
Public Function ParseM3U(M3UFile As String) As String()
Dim M3ULine As String
Dim M3USongs() As String
ReDim M3USongs(0) As String
Open M3UFile For Input As #1
Do While Not EOF(1)
Input #1, M3ULine
If Left(M3ULine, 1) = Chr(92) Then
    If M3USongs(0) = Null Then
        M3USongs(0) = M3ULine
    Else:
        ReDim Preserve M3USongs(LBound(M3USongs) To UBound(M3USongs) + 1) As String
        M3USongs(UBound(M3USongs)) = M3ULine
    End If
End If
Loop
Close #1
ParseM3U = M3USongs
End Function


the pls function:
Code: [Select]

'This function reads the contents of a WinAMP pls file and returns the
'file paths in an array
Public Function parsePLS(PLSFile As String) As String()
Dim PLSLine As String
Dim PLSLineStripped As String
Dim PLSSongs() As String
Dim I As Integer
ReDim PLSSongs(0) As String
Open PLSFile For Input As #1
Do While Not EOF(1)
Input #1, PLSLine
If LCase(Left(PLSLine, 4)) = "file" Then
    Do While Right(Left(PLSLine, I), 1) <> Chr(61)
        I = I + 1
    Loop
    PLSLineStripped = Right(PLSLine, Len(PLSLine) - I)
    If PLSSongs(0) = Null Then
        PLSSongs(0) = PLSLineStripped
    Else:
        ReDim Preserve PLSSongs(LBound(PLSSongs) To UBound(PLSSongs) + 1) As String
        PLSSongs(UBound(PLSSongs)) = PLSLineStripped
    End If
End If
Loop
Close #1
parsePLS = PLSSongs
End Function


Post a .b4s file to the lilly pond and I'll work on it.


Also, you need to revise the code so the seekbar doesn't show unless a mp3 is playing. Showing it without a song playing crashes my AutoCAD instantly. Something like this should work.

Code: [Select]

Sub StopMP3()
 Dim dwreturn As Long
 Dim Ret As String * 128
  dwreturn = mciSendString("close all", 0&, 0&, 0&)

 If dwreturn <> 0 Then
  mciGetErrorString dwreturn, Ret, 128
  MsgBox Ret, vbCritical
 End If
 ClearModeMacro
 PlayStatus = "stop"
End Sub


Code: [Select]

Sub SeekMP3Form()
If Not PlayStatus = vbNullString and Not PlayStatus = "stop" Then
   RetVal = TimerModule.TimerSetup(6000)
   SeekMP3.Show
End If
End Sub
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on April 06, 2004, 06:18:42 PM
Good enough... did you test the code above for the seekbar?
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: TR on April 06, 2004, 07:38:22 PM
I typed that out from here without testing. It should work though.
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on April 06, 2004, 09:03:14 PM
I thought about that and I figured I should make it a bit more foolproof... I added a bit of code to check the status of the player, if it was still playing, it would display, but if it had stopped, then it would not display. This would prevent a user from selecting the button after the song had finished.

I have managed to add multiple file support via selection of multiple files, but it does not work without VB6. I am working on a solution for VB5, but it might not come as readily.

I also have added a skip to next or previous file if there is more than 1 file in the playlist.

I am preparing to add the PlayList mod as I type... give me a few minutes and I will upload the latest version.
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on April 06, 2004, 10:08:30 PM
I am having some trouble getting it to read the M3U file correctly.

I noticed the code searches for a ackslash as the first character of the line where the file name is. Unfortunately all of the M3U files I have are as such:

Quote from: Collection.m3u

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:230,Unknown Artist - Footsteps of Decisive Battle
Mp3\Lunar Eternal Blue - Footsteps of Decisive Battle.mp3
#EXTINF:288,Unknown Artist - The Last Battle
Mp3\Lunar Eternal Blue - Zopha vs. Lucia - The Last Battle.mp3
#EXTINF:210,Hitoshi Sakimoto - Battle on the Bridge
Mp3\Final Fantasy Tactics - Battle on the Bridge.mp3
#EXTINF:142,Lunar Eternal Blue - Field Toward Tomorrow
Mp3\Lunar Eternal Blue - Field Toward Tomorrow.mp3
#EXTINF:131,Soul Blade - The Edge of Soul
Mp3\Soul Blade - The Edge of Soul.mp3
#EXTINF:153,Unknown Artist - Whitendon Theme
Mp3\Anachronox - Whitendon.mp3
#EXTINF:436,Cirque Du Soleil - High Bar
Mp3\High Bar.mp3


Quote from: Winamp.m3u

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:234,Unknown Artist - Untitled
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Lux Aeterna.mp3
#EXTINF:234,Unknown Artist - Untitled
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Lux Aeterna.mp3
#EXTINF:234,Unknown Artist - Untitled
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Lux Aeterna.mp3
#EXTINF:234,Unknown Artist - Untitled
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Lux Aeterna.mp3
#EXTINF:234,Unknown Artist - Untitled
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Lux Aeterna.mp3
#EXTINF:234,Unknown Artist - Untitled
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Lux Aeterna.mp3
#EXTINF:234,Unknown Artist - Untitled
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Lux Aeterna.mp3


Now one explicitly has the path while the other has the inferred path.

I have no pls files to check.

I will look at it more closely tomorrow.

Tim, I uploaded the 3 pertinent files to your folder on the lilly pond. Download them and check them out. I have still not fixed the M3U and PLS thing yet.
Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: TR on April 06, 2004, 11:33:25 PM
What the hell. You would think that with different versions of winamp they would at least keep the m3u format the same (I was reading a m3u file generated by winamp5). I guess I'll have to revise those functions to be able to read all the possible formats of m3u files.  :(

I'll take a look at it as soon as I get a chance.

Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on October 19, 2004, 01:09:41 PM
I think you can simply add the WMA filter to the file search window. The media player dll is what is used to manage the files, so I don't think the format will be a problem.

Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Keith™ on October 20, 2004, 08:20:00 AM
You will have to do it programmatically, the window will not accept any file type except those listed in the combo box, even if you change the filter.

            "Windows Media (*.wma)" & Chr(0) & "*.wma" & Chr(0) & _


In the PlayFile sub add this to the Select Case

Title: CadAMP Windowless MP3 player for AutoCAD
Post by: Twitch on January 17, 2005, 12:18:26 AM
Is anyone still working on this program?  If so let me know.  I've taken a look a the the code and think I have a few things to help out.

For example, change the line where modemacro is set in the MP3 basic module to the two lines below to only show the filename, not the full path:

Code: [Select]
 FileName = Mid(FileName, InStrRev(FileName, "\") + 1, Len(FileName) - InStrRev(FileName, "\") - 4)
  ThisDrawing.SetVariable "ModeMacro", "CADAmp: " & FileName

If nobody else is working on it, I would be happy to add in playlist and multi-play functionality.

you may not have all of the VBA files installed. Do a search on your computer for that file. If you find it then you have to register the file. If you don't find it, then you don't have that version of VBA installed. You can usually find the file available for download on the web. It would need to be put in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VBA

*edit*

The file can normally be found on the installation CD for Office 97 and AutoCAD 2000.

If your AutoCAD program is 2002+ you may have VB6 installed.. in that case, you should replace all instances of MyAddressOf to AddressOf and the VBA332.dll will not be needed.

This problem most often occurs when the VBA332.dll is deleted or uninstalled.

Dan, what version of AutoCAD are you using? I know t-bear could never get it working right...he is on 2004

Also what version of Windows?

Strangely enough it works for me on 2004 ..

Try this ...
In TimerModule change the file VBA332.dll to the entire path and see if that fixes the problem.

Well, it seems that this has gotten quite a bit of attention, some good some bad ... all helpful in development.

What I am considering is further development of this program. Of course the caveat is that if no one uses it (or will use it) then I won't waste my time to improve it.
... and make it more compatable with AutoCAD 2004+

So a show of hands would be great ... should I develop it further ... should I abandon it ... or should I just leave well enough alone ...

Great prog. If it could play a palylist without a promt for each track, then it would be all I could ask for. Runs fine on 2005.

Right now the program only plays MP3, WAV, and MIDI files .... if you burn your MP3 files to CD as MP3s, you can play them.

Update:

The following CadAMP program plays in AutoCAD 2004 (will not work in 2000-2) and support multiple files.

The code has not been updated in a long time, but it "should" work as long as you have VBA installed.

Download the file from above and place in the path of AutoCAD, then load the CadAMP menu and CadAMP dvb. You should be able to simply play files from the toolbar.
