  • ISX playlists for Home entertainment.

    Mar 19, 2014 02:34 PM|kolvadw|LINK

    I am using IIS Media Services on a server in my home for home entertainment and automation purposes.  I've created a web site that controls my house and one of the pages is a list of .ISX playlists for my media.  Selecting a list plays the music throughout the house via a Media player .ASP object embedded on the web page.

    My questions are:

    1) is there anyway to include the album art with an ISX playlist?  While the audio comes through fine, would really like to add the album art if possilbe, even if that was just playing a set of .jpg images for the covers while the .mpgs were playing.

    2) is there anyway to randomize the playlist?  Having a playlist with 20 entries is great, but not so great when they play in the same order all the time.

    thanks for your help,

    Hi,

    You can try extending Web Playlists through Custom Providers. For more information, you can refer here
