Hello Reader! 🙂
This is in continuation to one of my previous blogpost where in I wrote a script to play random songs in background using the Powershell console.
Though there are already some Windows Media player automation scripts available in the commmunity, but I was looking for something that easy as “Single cmdlet” and provides easy controls like Shuffle, Loop, Stop. Hence I wrote this script.
I’ve included few more functionalities to the script which are following
PLAY IN BACKGROUND :
Plays all music in background on a hidden Windows Media Player Instance and you can continue with your work.
MUSIC CONTROL :
Enables you to Control your music from the Shell no need to switch windows, by providing options like Shuffle, Loop and Stop
NEXT TRACK NOTIFICATION
You get Notified by a Information balloon in bottom right corner of your screen whenever a new track starts playing.
CACHES DIRECTORY LOCATION:
Function caches information of last accessed directory so that you don’t have to provide Music directory every time you run the function
INFORMATION AND USER PREFERENCES:
Provides Information like Total Songs, Total Play duration, and Mode chosen by the user in the PowerShell console itself.
SUPPORT SWITCH ALIASES:
All Music control switches support Aliases for all those lazy people out there 😛 😉
HOW IT WORKS (The Core Logic):
Following is the Script for your reference
HOW TO RUN :

Hoping you’ll find it useful in your day to day use! 🙂
