Iíve only recently joined, having picked up a custom made digital jukebox on the Ďbay, so I was rather hoping to say Ďhelloí. There looks to be more than sufficient help already here to get me up-tp-speed, so thanks to everyone involved. Loving the program, which has a reassuring old-school feel.

Hello Brian and Chris,

Thank you for your work and support.
DWJUKEBOX was and is a great program.
It is a pity that it will not be further developed.

Best regards
Peter

what a shame Brian but sadly see were your coming from

do love this program

I started digital jukeboxes' about 15 years ago and seen some changes myself I don't do digital streaming myself not for me I like the hands on approach with buttons and large touch screens

sadly streaming apps seems to be killing windows based jukebox systems for the home

maybe someone could come along and rescue this sight and update dw juke and give it a fresh coat of paint

I love dw jukebox drawn me away from album based programs love the old meets new tech idea

This is feeling like the end of the road for my time with DWJukebox.

1.  My primary desktop computer drive just died.  I have some old backups on an external drive, but likely won't set up another computer with DWJukebox.
2.  My new iPhone 8 Plus has 256 gb of memory and holds my entire music library, has bluetooth, and I can ask Siri to play anything I have on it.
3.  I've created several skins but my hobby hours are now more devoted now to my other hobby of vintage radios.  I don't see myself creating anything new at this point.
4.  I just don't have the space or even the reason anymore to build a dedicated jukebox.  No parties at the house, and with my phone and bluetooth I can play music in any room I choose to, or have my Amazon Echo's play it.

It would be different if we still had a community here of people encouraging each other and sharing their work.  At least a little different.  But that's no longer the case. 

So, this isn't my final post, but it's probably pretty close.  Right now I'm raising my Jack Daniels in a toast to all the fun I've had with this program (not 'app') over the past what, 15 years?  Cheers.  <clink>  There was never another program like it, and now there certainly will never be. 

Chris, if you're out there (and I see you logged on August 20th....), thanks again for the work you put into this and for keeping the forum and program webpages up for as long as you have.  Hopefully, you've had some enjoyment seeing how others have used your work in their homes.  The YouTube videos alone show how this program has been enjoyed by people around the world.

TTFN,

Brian

General Discussion / Visualization software
« Last post by dermbrian on August 09, 2018, 03:35:43 PM »
I recently discovered a Windows Store app called Kauna, designed for Windows 10.  It includes a lot of unique music visualizations and has an option for microphone input to sense the music.  My favorite option so far is "Bars 3D".  I keep wishing that developers add a "Color Organ" visualization, replicating that 1970's classic light box.  I made that suggestion to the developer in my review, and also asked that they add an option to stop spinning the Bars 3D visualization.  Why do they all have to be in motion or going through tunnels.....let the music frequencies and beat be represented more faithfully.

So....although DWJukebox does not play nice with other programs, a lot of us have an old laptop or tablet lying around that could be dedicated to running just the visualization software in a jukebox cabinet.

If you have any interest in the idea, you should check out that app in the Store.

Now to clean up some spam again....

Has anyone ever been able to get a 5 digit 7 segment display to work with the software and if so how??
So here is my jukebox project I have an old nsm festival jukebox that I want to convert but I donít want to loose the functionality of the original parts. Iíve thought of an Arduino for the inputs on the buttons as they are a multi plexed and this is also true with the display,  but itís the output value from the software that is tricky
I would love to have the track number shown in the original display and might be even nice to see the credits listed as well.
Any help would be appreciated
Cheers Blair
