Re: Programming a Track Switch in Itunes or other Media Player
Well, as I said there's two basic approaches:
- The "proper" way, where you find the API / library that goes alongside your player and then write the appropriate plugin
- The "cheat" way, where you set a scheduled task to emulate the (prone to change) keyboard shortcuts that will start your selected song.
I'll say now - if you've never done any programming then either way is probablya tall order, and I don't know of any player with this sort of functionality built in! Your best bet if you want to research it may be to look into controlling windows media player with .NET (I'm not really a .NET guy so I don't know how feasible that'd be, but it strikes me as the sort of thing that Microsoft would provide a way to do.) But again, simple as it seems it's not going to be a 5 minute learning process and a 2 second job!
