I'm building a thick client player using the ActiveX control and the SDK. I've seen functions for playing, pausing, and stopping the playback but no functions for skipping to the next/previous song in a playlist or skipping to a specific song. I see that the functionality is built into the control, however I would perfer to use my own controls to manage the playback if possible (so they match the style of the rest of the application).

Are the functions used to skip to different files in the playlist available? If not please add that to your list of suggestions for the next version.

Thanks

There is a method of the ActiveX for getting whole playlist content - so you can build your own GUI for displaying the playlist and then you have full control for such things as "skip to next" etc.

I've seen and successfully used the get_PlayListContent function, but looking in the ActiveX.html I don't see any functions for skipping songs. Besides play, pause and stop the only thing I've can find is Seek which just changes position in the media currently playing.

Can you provide me the names of the functions I need or direct me to where I can find the information in the SDK documentation?

Thanks

Dawned on me after I hit submit. What you meant was I could take full control over playing the playlist by manually requesting the next song when the current one was finished, instead of requesting the server play the full playlist. Right?

Yes.

You call PlayPlaylist only once, actually to get it's content.
You display its content in your own GUI.
Then you only play individual items according to your GUI - you can do your "Next", "Previous" etc buttons.
