I dont need it to download the track it already on my db.

The download button, copies the track to the download folder in E-touch. That button should be visible on the play options screen if it is enabled. They will then be able to just copy that one folder to their device.

This was going to be used to enable users to download the track to their phone via bluetooth but I never added the bluetooth part.

Yeah that is already included, you can download the track, it will download into the etouch directory under downloads or something like that, then you can set up a batch file to copy everything across when you want to, but you have to trigger the batch file by yourself.

Yeah I just want them to scrool thru the jukebox and instead of pressing add to queue they will press a button to send file to a folder.  Then they will only have to copy the folder over insteadcof searching thru the db.

There is the function to download to folder which will be skin dependant, as in if a skinner has removed that function. It will download to that the download folder and be available when someone next wants that track.

I am not sure if this is what you need or not?

You could also use a batch file, to move and copy things across, either that or set up network locations, as to where each persons files are, or indeed create different user accounts.

Hey guys my daughters are coping musing to there devices and one says to me 'this is hard looking for each mp3 and transfering it to a folder and then coping it to  thier device'.  Can etouch do this on its own?  I know way back it had a 'burn to cd' button.  Can that button be use to send files to a folder?  Would be nice.. :beer

It is possible if the sites in question would allow it via their API.

What you are suggesting is not possible, it is just a jukebox, it would not divert to another site etc to play the music.

General Discussion / Innovative Jukebox Idea for Indie / Unsigned artists

I realize I'm going to need to get into software development to make this possible. For the time being, I'm willing to run this jukebox software on a windows tablet that I can hand to people at a bar. I specifically curate independent music from unsigned artists with their knowledge that I'm doing that. This means of course, I just need their permission to play their music.

I want to make it, however, in such a way where the ETouch Jukebox software can function like the user and playback the tracks. The Jukebox software will promote and display the tracks I've selected to spotlight but when someone wants to listen to the track when the customer selects the track, the jukebox software pulls up the Bandcamp, SoundCloud, Spotify or whatever link is available to play the track after purchasing it. This would work especially well for Bandcamp where there is limited free listens before there is unlimited access to pay for the track. Payment would go straight to the artist right then and there.

I can run etouch on a pentium d which is an old computer, but ideally you want as good as you can afford really.

Are you going to use it as a dedicated jukebox, or are you going to be running other programs on it?

I think that I have my main juke on a g4200 chip or something like that, dedicated sound card and it works fine.

An older computer can run a lot better with an SSD drive in, when I first brought my pentium D for my office computer, it was slow as hell, add an SSD and dedicated graphics and it brings a new lease of life to the computer.

Operating system is also an issue. People are using this on XP but using it offline, simply because XP is no longer catered for in relation to virus and backdoor protection. I personally use Windows 7 on 3 out of 4 of my machines, my jukebox, office and home cinema, I was running 7 on my gaming PC, but I put windows 10 on, because I wanted to try xbox one and windows 10 together for anywhere gaming.

I was a beta tester for 10, and I still would not recomend it, but it is going to be the safest operating system to use come 2020 when 7 stops getting virus updates.

I have used and tested on all of my systems and I have the following

A pentium D, works fine, a g2400 odd processor, which I think is my jukebox, an i3 processor and also an i5 processor.

In my office PC I have 4 gigs of ram, and in the others, I think that everything is eight gigs of ram. Three PCs have dedicated graphics, but my jukebox is onboard graphics.

All of us have different set ups, so no one set up is correct, but parts are cheap as chips when people build new systems, I usually buy the best that I can afford to future proof.

A good i3 and 8 gigs of ram and you would have no problems, dedicated graphics maybe, dedicated sound card with a tos link.

The tos link really makes a jukebox sound a hell of a lot better, hdmi does not cut it when it comes to audio, unless you spend hundreds of pounds on cables, my HDMI were in the 30's and they sound nowhere as good as my tos cable, the sound literally bounces across the room.

Anyway shall stop waffling, but wanted to add an update, as I am bored and not tired yet.

Regards

Mark
