  • BLMediaPlayer and HSTouch

    I bought this plugin some time ago - particularly for its ability to play music to remote speaker clients - works great.

    Checking thru the finished update requests I saw a number of them relating to cover art in HSTouch. I am assuming others have this working. It would be really useful if somebody could post some instructions and related files etc. Thanks


    PS: Since many new users will be discovering these plugins, it might be useful for someone to clarify the differences between this plugin and BLMusic - why would a user choose one or the other.

    The main differences are

    BLMediaPlayer
    Does NOT do cover art
    Is playlist based for music selections

    BLMusic
    Does cover art nicely
    Is folder/directory based for adding music to a queue to be played. (does not do playlists)

      BLMediaPlayer works with the Windows Media Player library you have setup on your computer.
      BLMusic allows the user to play music using a folder structure library on a hard drive.

      I am sure others who use them both with chime in. I do not use either of them

        It would be great if you could toggle the controls like mute/unmute, or play/stop/resume/pause for those of us trying to use this in HSTouch.

          Doing that in HSTouch with simple events tied to buttons.
