I'm using arduino buttons to play videos on the pc

04 Apr 2017, 14:08

I need help.

I'm using arduino buttons to play videos on the pc.
When I press a button on the Arduino it sends a letter to the serial port, this letter plays video through autohotkey.
I need to press a button to play a video, but even if I press another button nothing should happen until the first video follows the end.




Below the code used.

I'm waiting.
Thank you


a::

Run, C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\mpc-hc64.exe "C:\VIDEOS\youtuber1.mp4"
Sleep 5000
Process, close, mpc-hc64.exe ; Kill vlc and make sure it stays dead
Return

b::

Run, C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\mpc-hc64.exe "C:\VIDEOS\youtuber2.mp4"
Sleep, 8000
Process, close, mpc-hc64.exe ; Kill vlc and make sure it stays dead
Sleep, 100
Return

c::

Run, C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\mpc-hc64.exe "C:\VIDEOS\youtuber 3.mp4"
Sleep, 9000
Process, close, mpc-hc64.exe ; Kill vlc and make sure it stays dead
Sleep 1000
Return
