This fixes the problem the Airclick had with Winamp...there was no way to configure it to work with anything other than iTunes, Powerpoint, or Windows Media Player. Once you start it, it will work similar to the iPod solutions people have mentioned, but you don't need the silent track if you don't want it. Play/Pause button. This starts or stops a track. Next/Forward button. Goes to the next track. Previous/Rewind button. Goes back one track. Volume Up and Down buttons work as you'd expect. You can configure Winamp to stop playing a track and fade it out, instead of just cutting it off. Open the Preferences (Ctrl - P) and select "Output" under "Plugins." Then, highlight "Direct Sound Output" and click the Configure button. Click the Fading tab in the popup window. Highlight "on pause/stop" and check the "Enabled" box. Then check the "Use custom fade time" box, because the default fade time is way too short. Try setting it to 1000 milliseconds and see how you like it; 1500 may be a bit better. The other option to set in Winamp is the "Manual playlist advance." Usually, you load up Winamp with a set of tracks you want to listen to, hit Play, and it goes through them. However, in our case, we usually want to play one track and then have Winamp stop and wait for us to start the next track. So, open the Preferences, highlight "Playlist" (near the top of the Preferences) and look for "Manual Playlist Advance" and check the box. Now, when a song gets to the end, Winamp will stop and not go to the next song. To trigger the next cue, hit the Next/Forward button and the Play button. You can also interrupt a song that's playing and jump to the start of the next one, just hit the Next button. So, this plug-in for the Airclick and Winamp works similar to the remote I use. The main differences are that you can't redefine the buttons and the Airclick is a bit cheap...it only works up to about 60 feet (the KeyRF goes much farther and has an antenna on the receiver that you can extend), and sometimes I find that the button presses just don't get recognized. The other thing is that the plugin doesn't move the highlight bar in Winamp, so you can't easily tell at a distance what track is playing. Jeff [/quote]
