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

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:

And by search bar, I meant to skip thru the song, just to clarify...

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.

Beautiful man!!!! It is nice to see something like this, integrated into CAD finally. I like the idea of the playlist and multi file idea. Besides that, I am dumbfounded still.

Nice, I'll have to load it up at work tomorrow and check it out. Winamp5 is bloat city.

p.s.....The dvb file isn't locked is it? I'd like to take a look at the source.

I never knew there was a market for AutoCAD mp3 players.  :D

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.
