Development - (fb2k) / KEF LS50W on/off button
Last post by thelampire -
Hi Fellow Enthusiasts!

I have recently acquired a set of KEF LS50w speakers. i figured out how to use the UPNP/DLNA mediarenderer output to use them. It can also control the volume and mute the speakers. I found out that it is relatively easy to switch them on with few python commands through the TCP/IP protocol.
I would like to do the following:
- Have a special button in foobar2000 which would turn on my speakers to wifi
- Have another button which would turn off my speakers
Both would be doing the same but sending different tcp/ip messages.

Would there be a way to program a new module/ special button for this purpose?

The python script is the following:
from socket import *

host = ''
port = 50001

with socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM) as s:
    s.connect((host, port))
    MESSAGE = bytes([0x53, 0x30, 0x81, 0x12, 0x82]) #WIFI
    #MESSAGE = bytes([0x53,0x30,0x81,0x9b,0x0b]) #TURN off

Going to make a wide leap here, and ask if maybe they were adding Monkey.fb2k-component to a playlist somehow, instead of, you know, just opening it with Explorer and letting the file type association take over.

Yes. There aren't a whole lot of VST instruments that support more than basic General MIDI, and a whole lot that don't even support that.

Can you play other file formats? Have you been able to play those files in the past? The latest Monkey's Audio decoder continues to work normally on this version of the player.

is there any chance that you can add a custom default option in the context menu besides "Send to current playlist", "Add to...", etc?
Added there standard foobar2000 context menu (in 3.4 beta 5). You may configure foo_run for your purpose. Actions from that menu cannot be set to be performed by double click, but you can configure keyboard shortcut via foobar2000 preferences.
:ooo thank you so, SO MUCH!! I finally made it work with the beta! AND! from the "Search on Site" menu, just like I wanted! ~with the help of the shortcut, haha;D~

I appreciate so much that you took your time to do this.... I know that you probably are busy doing other things:(... so, thank you.... it really means a lot...

Spoke too soon. It seems that different albums (or perhaps track data) are more susceptible than others. I'll take another look at it sometime -- probably something simple -- but for now I'll just enjoy it best O can.

(Il Barbiere di Siviglia with Vittorio Gui/Alva/de los Angeles is doing it a lot -- three or four times not halfway through the first disc; it's mostly short tracks. Other albums I've had on I've had no problems with. Might that help with a possible diagnosis?)

(Files the first time were 320kbps MP3; now they're 128kbps Opus. May have had some FLAC in there early on; if I did I noticed no diffemcd.)

There is no point. The "Secret Sauce" is for using an internal library directly. The S-YXG50 is only available as a VST instrument, so it must be used through the VST interface.

I could make the SysEx initialization a global thing, but it would only benefit VST instruments, the Roland synthesizer, and BASSMIDI. And BASSMIDI's handling of the various standards is very limited.
