View Full Version : "Pause" Item Playlist Wish
21st December 2000, 02:11
I wish there was a way you could insert a "Pause" item into the Winamp playlist. It seems pretty silly that right now we have to actually insert blank mp3's into the playlist in order to get the intended effect. It would be nice if this "Pause" item had a configurable length, so that you could insert a different-length pause in-between different mp3's in your list, based on how much pause time they already had at the end of the file.

I've checked that thread, it points you to general plugins
that do pause between every song in the playlist.
What would be less conveniet for simple uses but more
flexible, is to have an ability to insert a specified pause
into a _specific_ place in the playlist. Wolosoft Juke has
this ability but we were talking about Winamp. The ideal
solution would be an pause input plugin, so that you insert
something like `pause://3.14' into the playlist and get a
3.14 secs of pause.
There is no such plugin currently (somebody, write?) but
you might hack one with the better Line-In plugin 1.0 by
You plug nothing into your Line In, or better, you change
the recording volume in the volume control to 0 (and maybe
the recording source, though I don't see why).
Then you insert `linein://srate=8,bps=8,nch=1,time=3.14'
(I added the sound format options to consume minimal CPU).
BTW, you mention blank MP3's, it sounds much simpler to me
to create empty WAV's if you go this way.
