make xmms play CD automatically


Hello all,

Anyone knows how to make xmms start playing a CD when you insert it?

I'm running fedora.

Thanks!

for me the CDPlayer plugin came with the package (I'm using Fedora). Apparently you need an audio cable connecting your CDROM to the sound card if you're using Analog play mode (to check, go to preferences, and edit the configuration for the CD Audio Player plugin).

Too lazy to install the cable, I used Digial audio extraction instead of Analog, and it works fine

To play a cd simply right click xmms, choose play directory, and browse your way to the cdrom.

I don't know about automatically...

Thanks guys! CD's playin'. I didnt like KsCD!

BUT, KsCD did just have an option "play automatically" or some such, which started the player as soon as a cd was inserted.

It had to be in the taskbar all the time though - not the best solution.

Autoplay would need to be done at the kernel/file system level wouldnt it?

Don't know about your cd-rom drive, but mine has the two buttons on its face for play/next track/scan forward and stop/eject. That works for me.

Ok I researched it again

First, set up xmms to play a CD whenever you type the command:
xmms -p /media
Here's how:
http://facilities.cs.utexas.edu/htdo...ultimedia.html

Now go to Control Center, Periphals, Storage Media
Click add
Under Edit service, change icon to speaker )))
change name to "Play in Xmms"
Under Available medium types, click on Audio CD
Click the arrow button to have it show up under "Display service for"
In the command box, type "xmms -p /media %u"
click ok
hit apply
insert a CD and choose "Play in Xmms"
if it works, re-insert CD and choose always use this action

presto!

I do something similar for Xine and DVD playback.
