Re: Creating play lists

Thom Spittle
 

Hi everyone,
I have watched this thread and seen some good advice on playlist. I just
wanted to add my 2 cents worth.
A playlist is a text file with a list of song paths.
For example, here is a path to Tim McGraw, "Live Like You Were Dying"
"F:\Music\T\Tim McGraw\Greatest Hits Volume 2 (2006)\Tim McGraw - Greatest
Hits Volume 2 (2006)\01 - Live Like You Were Dying.mp3"

If I had the path to my favorite songs in a notepad text file, then saved it
but changed the txt extension to M3U, it would then be a playlist that
winamp and itunes, or windows media player could recognize.

I hope this helps anybody's understanding of what a playlist file is all
about.

Take care,
Thom

Hi Steven,
Here are the steps I have been using for the past 18 years, and have had no
problems There are other ways of doing this, this is just the one I prefer,
and it may seem lengthy, but there is actually more verbiage than actions.

Creating a playlist for Winamp:

Winamp should be set as the default audio player, and configured properly in
order for these steps to work.
These steps were written using Winamp 5.623 on Windows 7 and Jaws 2019, and
should work fine as long as the following requirements are met:
1. Winamp is the default player.
2. Winamp is configured to show Winamp actions in the context menu.
3. Files in the playlist are not moved from their location when the playlist
was created.
4. If files are on an external drive, that drive will need to be connected
and turned on before Winamp starts in order for it to find the files.

1. Select the files you want to be in the playlist, and then press the
applications key, or shift F10 to open the context menu.
2. From the list of available options, select "encue in Winamp", and press
enter.
3. Repeat the steps above , until you have your playlist complete.
Once you have completed your playlist, start Winamp to make sure the files
play.

4. Next, open the run dialogue, and type a period, and press enter.
This will open your user folder.
5. Select app data, and press enter to open it.
By default, the app data folder is hidden, so you will have to make it show
to access it.
6. Select "roaming", and press enter.
7. Select the Winamp folder and open it.
8. Select the "winamp.m3u file, and press the F2 key to rename the file,
giving it a name suitable for your playlist.
9. At this point, you can simply cut the file from the folder, and place it
on your Desktop, Start Menu, or the root of the "C" drive, or leave it where
it is, and create a shortcut to it.
Removing this file from Winamp will not cause any problems, since a new one
is created when Winamp starts.
10. You can follow these steps to create as many playlists as you wish You
can copy the file path below , replacing the "User Name", with the name of
your folder, to get directly to the Winamp folder.

Windows XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Winamp

Windows Vista &Windows 7:

C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Winamp This should also work with Windows
10, although I haven't been able to get Winamp to work correctly on my
system yet.

HTH,
Rick

Once again, here's how playlists can be created simply using Winamp.

Creating Playlists using Winamp

This has already been answered, but for convenience just answering it again
(there are several different ways of doing most things on computers). This
process has worked with XP, 7, 8 and 10.

There are simple ways of creating playlist files (.M3U, .PLS, etc.) within
Winamp alone (without having to install anything extra) and here are the
directions below:

1. Open up Winamp.
2. Within the Winamp Playlist Editor tab we'll call it (Alt+E) which is
where you have all of your chosen tracks. To choose individual tracks to add
to this list, just highlight/select whatever tracks on your machine or other
drives that you are wanting to add to the playlist, use your applications
key (Shift+F10) 3. Then press E for Enqueue in Winamp. Do this with whatever
tracks, albums, folders that have anything you are wanting to add to the
playlist that you are interested in creating.
4. When finished adding all you desire to add, go to the Winamp Playlist
Editor tab like before (probably only needing to Control+Tab to it if focus
is not already there) You can arrow up and down to check out what you've
placed within the playlist use the keystroke Control+S to save the playlist
you've put together. Name and save it wherever you prefer. It can be moved
anywhere on the machine, it's just the files within this playlist you've put
together can't be moved for them to continue to work with the playlist
itself.

Re: Dear Friends, Should I do a "Disk Clean Up" on my 8, 9, year old External T - Drives?

Gene
 

In general, except for one possible case, I doubt that doing a cleanup would accomplish anything. the purpose is to remove files that accumulate that don't do anything but waste space.  The operating system isn't on the external disks and you aren't running files on them.  You should have either no or almost no useless files if you just use it for storage.  One thing I don't know about is something like System Restore keeping a record of what is on your drive.  I see no point in that, and, if it is monitoring your drive, you might save room, I'm not sure how much, by stopping monitoring.  If the old file is left, that keeps information about the drive, you might save room, but I don't know how much, if you remove the file. 
 
But others who know more may comment on that.

accessible DVD player for a friend?

Michael Amaro
 

Hello Listers,
 
A friend of mine, is looking for the following accessible DVD player.  His message follows:
 
        I am looking for an accessible DVD player and know this list contains many people with diverse experiences. I know there are many accessible models including Phillips—the brand I am most interested in. The question I am asking is; do any of the accessible models you know about speak the dvd title information while navigating the dvd menu. I have a model where the buttons speak but what I need is title information. I don’t expect the actual title name to speak but something like “Title 1”, “Title 2”, etc. I would appreciate any information you might have.
 
Thanks

Re: merge mp3 files

Thanks. The reason I don't care to use GoldWave is that I believe that it re-encodes the file while it does its work. When encoding a lossy file, more audio data will be lost. Unless this is somehow changed, that's my understanding how an audio editor, such as GoldWave handles mp3 files.

Subject: [TechTalk] Creating play lists


I would like to be able to create a play list that would play a large amount
of music in Winamp, but I don't have the foggiest idea how to even get
started creating one. I want to actually make a play list, not just tell
Winamp to play a folder. Anyone have any JAWS oriented tutorials on
creating playlists, or recommendations for a decent, accessible playlist
editor?

This sounds like an issue with the station. I'm assuming it's in your favorites. Have you tried deleting it and then searching for it again?

merge mp3 files

Kwork
 

I'm looking for a windows program to merge mp3 files together. I know there are programs that will do it without compromising audio quality, which is already lossy. If anyone knows of one that is accessible, please let me know. Thanks.

Re: my laptop battery

around the same spot where the previous older switches are located. I
suggest, if you just can't manage to locate them, you may even seek
some sighted assistance. i checked with her as well & she confirmed,
she indeed is using that model.

Hi,

my wife is using this model & i guess, i have taken out its battery a
few times. There are 2 thin switches located below the laptop. Request
you to loook for them.

As to where you may be able to find the replacement, i guess, any of
the online stores should be able to supply you the battery.

i guess, i am not wrong about my observations.

thank you,

Bharat.

Does anyone have any experience with this model as far as the battery is
concerned? I'm about to call Lenovo but thought I'd ask first.

Thanks.

Hi Jeff,
 
Do you need to have File Explorer in a particular view setting to make this keystroke work?  I ask because I have my view setting in list view and this keystroke doesn't tell me anything.  Thanks much.

Or, press insert tab while pointing a drive in file explorer, if using JAWS.

Yo Bro,
 
Try the following for each drive to get the properties of the drive:
1. Open Computer / your list of drives by pressing, Windows key + E, or press enter on the, Computer, icon on the desktop.
 
2. Down arrow to select / highlight the 1st drive you want to get the properties of and press, Alt + Enter, to open properties, or open the context menu by pressing the applications key, arrowing up to, Properties, and pressing enter.
 
3. Give the drive a couple of seconds to populate / load the data.  Now route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor with the keystroke, Insert + Numpad minus / Jaws cursor key and down arrow to get the results.  You'll hear, Used Space, so listen closely to what Jaws is saying because you'll hear a long number that is the number of bytes, then you'll hear the number of GB used.
 
4. Down arrow again to hear, Free Space, and again just like step 3 you'll hear the long number and then the number of GB that is free space.
 
5. use  the same steps from above on each external drive.

 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Dear Friends,
I am organizing all my Data files, using 3 different external T - Drives and
2 other drives I have in 2 different computers.  I have a lot of music,
books and movies, and want all this Data backed up on at least 2 different
drives in case one drive fails.
I need to know the best, fastest and simplest way to see how much space is
on my drives, used spaced and available space, so I can distribute the data
more  or less equally on all the different drives.
Can some one please give me the key stroke to see the space on a drive, and
thanking you in advance.
With best regards.
God Bless.

Hi,

If I upload a video I recorded to fb, could I download it to my computer?

Yes, so if I uploaded it, I would have a copy right?

What I am saying is I recorded my kids via fb live and uploaded it to fb, but it’s not giving me the option to download it.

 

Thank you,

Sincerely,

Kimsan Song
