I have been giving this some thought recently, and thought that I would toss this into the community for input. I have mentioned before that I use a big playlist in my shop, several hundred songs and videos on eternal shuffle. I used to use Winamp, but that sort of went away. Right now, I am using Foobar2000, but it has drawbacks. It has a boring interface, and is limited in the formats it will play. What do is keep the playlist on a pc in the office, and use the monitors in other spaces like a second monitor, showing the video if available. Since switching to foobar2000, I don’t get to do the video part. does anyone know of a better player?
Also, what would be nice is the ability to play preferred or newer songs slightly more often than the rest of them. I was thinking about this today. I put a couple of new albums on the playlist this morning, and none of the songs got played today. Either the newer ones could play more often, or the user could assign some numerical value to favorite songs.
The other thing I was thinking about is that it would be nice to have the extra monitors revert to the security cameras if a motion sensor was tripped. that is why those monitors were installed. I can probably figure out how to do that, if I give it enough thought.
thanks in advance for taking time to read or respond to what is probably a frivolous request.
