Short Instruction to the Play2Text tool

This tool waits for changes in the current histroy file and writes the last line of the history file into a .TXT or .HTML file.
You will have to set the path, name and type of the file the tool should create. This is done clicking on the button next to the "Save file to" textbox.
Depending of the file type chosen, the big text field in the middle of the program will populate with different data.

This data depends on the chosen operation mode BASIC or ADVANCED.


BASIC Mode:
----------------------------------

The basic mode just provides a singe tag called %track%.
This is a variable name that will hold the file name stored in the history.


Example:

You can write something like this to the textbox:

Now playing on Awsome.FM: %track%
Mixed by YourDJName

after the tool writes the infos to the file it will look like this:

Now playing on Awsome.FM: Safri Duo - Played-A-Live
Mixed by YourDJName

The Basic mode only uses the infos stored in the history file. That is just the filepath of the track. Meaning if your filepath is not well formated and looks like this

3-jean-claude-ades-i-begin-to-wonder-2008-felguk-radio-edit

it will write exactly this to the file.
For the info to get written the variable name has to be %track%


ADVANCED Mode:
---------------------------------

This one will try to read your VDJ databases meaning it will read the actual tags of the track.
You can currently choose between these variables:

%artist%
%title%
%remix%


This mode might not work all the time because VDJ might lock the database and prevents Play2Text to read the database.


Once started the tool will continue to listen for changes to the history file and update the output file until it is getting closed.

First, why didn't I get an email notification if someone wrote into this topic? I did subscribe the topic.


Now... sure it would be a better solution but, sadly, I really don't have the time to start learning all the VDJ related C++ stuff.

If you are willing to feel free to try it. If I can be of any assistance I'll try to help you.
