    Great music channel! I have set up VA & Astra to play the radio stream at my command using VLC.

      Are you using Voidflake's HCS Radio Pack commands? Or did you make your own?

          I rolled my own, but that is because I had voice control already setup for my media player

            Can't get voidflakes Radio Pack to work on my system yet so mine is own rolled too. I tend to be quite picky abut what style of music I want whilst playing the game so just one or two channels for me is just fine.

              Just seen this post, and have to mention I have been messing about getting Radio to work myself. Tips and tricks please throw them in my direction.

              I done the following and works, but I am sure you guys have done better.


              1. Downloaded TapinRadio(free) at http://www.raimersoft.com/tapinradio.aspx

              2. Used 'Run Application' command in Voice Attack.

              3. Terminate with 'Close' command in Voice Attack.


              Just make sure TapinRadio App has in 'Preferences' AutoMatically Start Playback *Enabled*




              End.

                Only issue I seem to have is that when I initiate the Radio app in Elite, windows then switches tasks to the Radio app placing Elite in the task bar....

                  Open the app first and then use media keys/playlists to open up/play music files.

                  This is not a "Voice Attack" problem specifically, but more of an issue with how windows deals with apps opening when others are already open/in focus.

                  You might be able to get around it if you run Elite Dangerous in "full screen borderless" mode. Whilst you might still get the app jumping up in the middle of the screen, at least it isn't force minimzing Elite.

                    Thanks Gangrel,
                    Maybe if I can find an app that will load directly into task bar instead, would that avoid the task switching ?

                      Yes that can do it... although if you are only listening to one stream, you can just open your media player/playlist before you load up Elite and then just use media keys as shortcuts (for next/previous/stop/pause/volume up/volume down). And as most media players accept global hotkeys, they won't even be brought to the front.

                      However, if you need any form of input (ie typing in a name/phrase) then as it stands right now, VA will bring that to the front.

                      For me, I just keep my media player open and then just hit next track/previous track as needed. The media player stays hidden away with no worries.

                        Once you get your radio app working I found the best place to import it is into the profile switch .vap

                        That way if you add other packs you dont have to worry about setting it all up again.
