If you want to play any of your MM playlist in Scheduled time you need to do this:
1. Make sure that you have Windows Scripting Host 5.6+ installed (Available for both Win9x and WinXP/NT/2000)
2. Download and extract somewhere on your hard disk http://solair.eunet.rs/~zorical/win_sch ... cripts.zip
(There is two versions of same script in archive, one normal that starts from first track and one that starts randomized)
3. Installed and started MediaMonkey
4. Some Playlists in MediaMonkey Playlist Tree node
If you have all of above you can continue with using/instalation steps.
1. Locate Playlist you wanna play in designated time and Copy its name to clipboard
2. Open Windows Scheduled Tasks
3. Start new Scheduled Task
4. Locate one script either Normal or randomized one as program that will be executed on designated time.
5. Add "CScript.exe" before script name separated with space from full script Filename*
6. Add Playlist name copied in step one at the end of line (note: Playlist name must be in Parenthals and separated with space from full script filename)*
7. Set other sheduled task values
8. Save Scheduled task
9. if you were done above steps right everything should work
10. repeat steps as many times as you want to set as many as you want Scheduled tasks
Note: Step 6 can be repeted if you want to play multiple playlists at once.
* - As some novice users may do not understand what exactly needs to be done they better look at example below and try to repeat steps based on look of examples.
Examples (each line contains one example, assuming that archive is extracted in "c:\MMTasks").
------ Examples ------
cscript "c:\MMTasks\Play Playlists From Start.vbs" "Top 100"
cscript "c:\MMTasks\Play Playlists From Start.vbs" "Ballads" "Top Ballads"
cscript "c:\MMTasks\Play Playlists From Start.vbs" "Monitored" "Never Played" "Newly Added"
cscript "c:\MMTasks\Play Playlists Randomized.vbs" "Top 100"
cscript "c:\MMTasks\Play Playlists Randomized.vbs" "Ballads" "Top Ballads"
cscript "c:\MMTasks\Play Playlists Randomized.vbs" "Monitored" "Never Played" "Newly Added"
------ Examples ------
If you wanna check your syntax you can always use Windows RUN command and if script is executed than you can use it in Windows scheduler.
Both of those scripts are scanned and do not contain any virus or any other malware or spyware or addware. Prior to releasing.
