Looking for track transition logger

Post by Owyn » Tue Dec 23, 2008 7:23 am

Looking for a short script to log Track Played, Track Advance and Track Start events to a log file.
Needs most accurate time stamps available.

Nothing fancy. Can run until MM exits.

Have not used this section of the API yet or I would give it a try myself.

Worked fine. I made some minor changes but that was trivial once I had your script to start with.
I checked the Wiki and could not see any event available for Play Complete. Oh well.

Code: Select all

' MediaMonkey3 Script
' LogPlays.vbs
Option Explicit
    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
    Sub OnStartUp()
        Script.RegisterEvent SDB, "OnPlay", "OnPlay"
        Script.RegisterEvent SDB, "OnStop", "OnStop"
        Script.RegisterEvent SDB, "OnPause", "OnPause"
        Script.RegisterEvent SDB, "OnSeek", "OnSeek"
        Log "***Started***"
    End Sub

    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
    Sub OnPlay()
        Log "Play"
    End Sub

    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
    Sub OnPause()
        Log "Pause"
    End Sub

    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
    Sub OnStop()
        Log "Stop"
    End Sub

    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
    Sub OnSeek()
        Log "Seek"
    End Sub

    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
    Sub Log(sText)
        Dim oLogFile
        Dim dTime

        Set oLogFile = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").OpenTextFile _
                (Script.ScriptPath & ".log", 8, True)
        dTime = Timer
        oLogFile.WriteLine Now & Mid(FormatNumber(dTime - Int(dTime), 3), 2) _
                & " - " & sText & " - " & SDB.Player.CurrentSong.Path
        oLogFile.Close
    End Sub
Appreciate the appending to the log. I sometimes keep the log open during testing and edit in notes about the test. e.g.

Code: Select all

Noticed that I am getting duplicate OnPlay events. DIIK.

Thanks again for the help.

You've registered two OnPlay events, that's why you're getting two log entries for it. If in the OnPlay function you store the current track then when the next one fires you can run any code you want to on the previous track (to simulate a OnPlayComplete).
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.
All the code for my website and scripts is safely backed up immediately and for free using Dropbox.

The old cut/copy and smash trick. Should have looked for the obvious.
Only excuse is insomniac testing.

Edit: Fixed. The second OnPlay back to OnStop

The reason I was looking for real Play complete was to specifically correlate DebugView, Procmon, Last.fm, etc. logs to specific events.

This time format with AM/PM is not very nice if you want to store milliseconds. It should be better if you switch to 24 hours time format. Or delete Mid(FormatNumber(dTime - Int(dTime), 3), 2) to remove milliseconds from a log.

Yeah. I had made a mental note to fix that. (Now an actual note).

FYI: Here is an example of how I used the script.
