Default controling BSplayer with multimedia keyboards

Hi!

I'm using the latest SetPoint with my Logitech keyboard and would like to control BSplayer with it but SetPoint only supports players it knows, like media player or winamp. (SetPoint is the software for Logitech keyboards and mice)

Couldn't Bsplayer use the same controls like one of those two softwares? There could be an amulation option or something like that so that BSplayer can be controled with multimedia keyboards.

Default This works with SetPoint

In the SetPoint installation folder (Logitech's software that controls the mouse special features) locate a file named players.ini (the default path is c:\Program Files\Logitech\SetPoint)

Open the file with any text editor and add the lines that are in bold

#List of supported players

#list of 10" UI players (available on remote button)
[Players.IsRemote]
MDesktop=True
MediaCenter=True
MediaLife=True
WinDVD=True
PowerDVD=True
BSplayer=True

After, save the modified players.ini, close the Setpoint application and re-open it. Once the app is running go through the normal menu and choose to use BSPlayer Pro as for your Media Key.

This works perfectly with the default Key config for BSPlayer Pro. The only thing that does not seem to work consistently is the Media Key (it does not launch the app) but all the other buttons work as they are supposed to (play, pause, next track, prev track, fast forward and rewind)

If you find a way to make it launch de app as well let me know but I find it to be just a minor disadvatage as I always need to be near the PC to load the songs/videos I want to listen/watch before walking away and using the mouse as a remote.

Is this only for the mouse? Could it work with the keyboard as well?

If I understand correctly, in this line:
BSplayer=key,bsplayer.exe,BSplayer,BSplayer,xxx,X, C,V,Y,B,0,1,Bsplayer Pro
"C" is the command for "pause".
Now what if you put some keyboard shortcuts on keys like spacebar, left arrow, enter, or something like ALT+ENTER? How can I put this in the *.ini file?

Default you need winscan codes

Hi Grendizer,

Glad you asked because I hit my head against the wall for a couple of days on that question...

You understand correctly, C in this example is the Pause command... you can use any key or key combination in the ini file, if you can type the key (like space for example) simply do so

If you cannot type it (like a Esc, left arrow, Ctrl, etc) you need to use the winscan codes that the operating system provides - Please note this are not the BIOS scan codes-

You can see an example of this in the Seek and Rewind sections of the posted players.ini above.

If you don't know the winscan codes you can use a little program called keytest from download.com to figure them out (that's the one I used)

I hope it helps
