hi,
the speak feature works fine... but iŽd like it to say the titel of the track currently played in winamp (or maybe some other media player...)
is there some way to get this as a variable from winamp or something like that?

thanksi

Hallo,
All You need is DVDSpy plugin from http://girderplugins.sourceforge.net/DVDSpy/
It generates events on Winamp (and other players) actions.
One of them is song title played sent as pld1 to girder.

hey,
thanks so far....
it triggers the speak command every time a new song is played... and really says the title

but what i actually want to do is to trigger the speak command with remote...
i tried it with [pld1] but the variable doesnt seem to be available out of the triggered tree

any ideas?

you will need to save the title to a variable using a simple lua script:

WinampTitle=pld1
then you can use the speak command and put in [WinampTitle]
