# 1 Music Player
10-28-2010, 11:58 PM
Has anybody figured out how to use the in game music player. It is a neat idea so that you can listen to what you want and not have to minimize to change tracks/alter volume, but I can't get it to work. I have Winamp and have it set to Winamp in the Audio options. But I still get no options on the player. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't use Winamp, so this may not be overly helpful but I use the ingame music player control with iTunes and it seems to work quite well.

I have found though that it works much better if I have the music player (iTunes) opened prior to starting STO, not sure if that would help you or not.

Okay. I've figured it out. With winamp it's not really an in-game music player but more like an in-game control for winamp. I had to actually start winamp and select my playlist through there, then in-game I can skip track and control volume. Thank you to DogsBody and N_Danger.

You're not missing anything, thats the same control level you get if using itunes aswell (Play, pause, next / prev track). Would be nice to be able to select a play list but as its easy to alt-tab back to itunes to do it, its no big issue and they have more important things to worry about.

Glad you got it working anyway.
