Re: Virtual Recorder question

Gene
 

Record what, an Internet stream, something using a microphone or recording from something like a turntable?  Are you saying you don’t want JAWS to be heard in the recording and you want to do other things while recording?  We need details.  Also, what source setting are you using now for recording?  Are you using the what you hear setting?

I'd like to make a recording with Virtual Recorder in the background. I want to be recording and still use Jaws to work at the same time. Is this possible in VR and if so please post directions. Thanks, Norma

Re: Where does this pop up come from?

Do not call that phone number. And never ever ever ever never ever let them connect to your computer. They will try to Siskey it and you will never get your data back once that happens. They are usually scammers from New Delhi India. Please never fall for that.

Re: Creating play lists

Steven Johnson <saxmonger@...>
 

Thanks Thom. I didn't know that a playlist is just a text file consisting
of a list of URLs of songs on my local drives. This led me to discover that
I could generate a playlist from a folder with or without all of its
subfolders from the command line. I did this by doing the following:
1. Get to command prompt by doing Windows R and typing cmd followed by
enter
2. Navigate to the folder to be made into a playlist. In my case, I typed
h: and hit enter, followed by cd my music\jazz.
3. Then, I typed dir/on/b/s > playlist.txt followed by enter.
4. I type exit, and find playlist.txt at the bottom of my jazz folder. I
opened it up in Notepad, and removed the list of root folders at the very
top of the file. The finished product looks something like this.
H:\My Music\Jazz\Airmen of Note\Airmen of Note - Children of the Night - 02
- Oleo.mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Airmen of Note\Airmen of Note - Rocks in My Bed.mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Airmen of Note\Airmen of Note - Song of the Volga
Boatmen.mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Airmen of Note\Airmen of Note - The Anvil Chorus.mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Airmen of Note\Airmen of Note - The Glenn Miller Tradition
- 14 - All the Things You Are.mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Airmen of Note\Airmen of Note- My Funny Valentine (Vaughn
Nark).mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Al Di Meola - Kiss My Axe\Erotic Interlude (Interlude
#2).mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Al Di Meola - Kiss My Axe\Gigi's Playtime Rhyme (Interlude
#1).mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Al Di Meola - Kiss My Axe\Global Safari.mp3
H:\My Music\Jazz\Al Di Meola - Kiss My Axe\Interlude #3.mp3


5. I do ctrl S to save the text file, then I exit it and rename it
playlist.m3u.
6. Bingo, my Winamp opens it and plays my music. I hit the letter S in
Winamp to turn on shuffle, and I have random jazz for days.


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.

Rick

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.

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?

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

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.

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

Dear Friends,
In organizing the Music files, audio books and DVS Movie files I collected
over the past 7, 8, 9 years,  I realized I never did a "Disk Cleanup", on
these External single Terabyte Seagate Drives I have.
Should I do a "Disk Clean Up" on my 8, 9,  year old T - Drives?
They were almost full, so I copied 100 GB from Each to a 4 - Terabyte
External Drive
What should I expect to happen, How long would it take, Will it give me a
little more room, is a "Disk Clean up like a Defrag, will my T - Drives run
faster? is there anything I should be leery of ?
Thanking you in advance for your advice and assistance,
With best regards.
God Bless.
