Have you ever wanted to control your media player with your voice? Well now you can! With today’s Macro of the Day, you can say things like “Play Hotel California”, or “Play The Eagles”, or, “Play Genre Rock”, and even “Play something by The Eagles”.

Today’s macro is one of the first Macros I created when we were developing WSR Macros, and I’ve tweaked it off and on for the last couple years. It’s currently in really good shape, and demonstrates some neat concepts like clarification, using named states, Jscript, and for the first time, it demonstrates the wmpMediaControl, wmpMediaPlay, and wmpMediaItems XML elements from the WSR Macro schema.

Let’s take a look at the first command in the macro, and the one I use the most:

<command>

    <listenFor>play ?the artist [Artists]</listenFor>
    <listenFor>play ?the band [Artists]</listenFor>
    <listenFor>play ?the group [Artists]</listenFor>

    <setTextFeedback>Playing Artist {[*Artist]}</setTextFeedback>
    <wmpMediaControl command="pause"/>
    <disambiguate title="Which artist do you want to play?" prompt="Choose an Artist" timeout="25" propname="Artist"/>

    <setState name="playMediaTypeName" value="Artist"/>
    <setState name="playMediaTypeValue" value="{[*Artist]}"/>
    <setState name="playMediaAttrName" value="WM/AlbumArtist"/>
    <setState name="playMediaAttrValue" value="{[Artist]}"/>
    <emulateRecognition>Play what I asked for</emulateRecognition>

</command>

This command listens for a few different ways to say “Play the artist [artist]”. When that, or one if it’s alternatives is recognized, the macro set’s the text feedback, tells the Media Player to pause, and then prompts the user if necessary to clarify (or disambiguate as we say inside the Speech group). After which, it sets a few named states to keep track of the last verbal request, and then emulates “Play what I asked for”.

“Rob, why are you doing that?” … good question. The first reason is to demonstrate how you can sequence macros together. You’ll see with the other commands for albums and tracks, that they all do some very similar things. By using named states, we can in effect make a voice based sub-routine. The added bonus is that I can also say “Play what I asked for”, and the last media play command will be performed.

Let’s look at the Play what I asked for command:

<command>

    <listenFor>Play what I asked for ?again</listenFor>

    <wmpMediaControl command="pause"/>
    <setTextFeedback speak="true">Playing {[playMediaTypeName]} {[playMediaTypeValue]}</setTextFeedback>
    <wmpMediaPlay attrname="{[playMediaAttrName]}" attrvalue="{[playMediaAttrValue]}"/>

</command>

This command simply pauses the media player, set’s the text feedback to say what it’s about to play, and then it starts playing what was asked for. There are two parts to wmpMediaPlay element is that enable you to tell the media player what to play. You can think of these two as a name and value pair. You can tell it to play an artist (“WM/AlbumArtist”) named The Eagles (“The Eagles”). The first is called the attribute name, and the second is the attribute value. You can learn more about what’s available by looking at the documentation on MSDN for the Windows Media Player SDK.

Let’s see how the Play Album command is similar to the Play Artist.

<command>

    <listenFor>play ?the album ?named [Albums]</listenFor>
    <listenFor>play ?the C D ?named [Albums]</listenFor>
    <listenFor>play ?the [Albums] C D</listenFor>
    <listenFor>play ?the [Albums] album</listenFor>

    <setTextFeedback>Playing Album {[*Album]}</setTextFeedback>
    <wmpMediaControl command="pause"/>
    <disambiguate title="Which album do you want to play?" prompt="Choose an Album" timeout="25" propname="Album"/>

    <setState name="playMediaTypeName" value="Album"/>
    <setState name="playMediaTypeValue" value="{[*Album]}"/>
    <setState name="playMediaAttrName" value="WM/AlbumTitle"/>
    <setState name="playMediaAttrValue" value="{[Album]}"/>
    <emulateRecognition>Play what I asked for</emulateRecognition>

</command>

As you can see, it’s very similar to the Play Artist command. In fact, the only real differences are that what we listen for is slightly different, the prompts are slightly different, and the attribute that we tell the mediaPlayerPlay element to play (via the named states) is different.

Now both of these top level commands that use the Play what I asked for command to actually do the work also are referring to other “rules”. How do those get defined? Good question. The Answer: With the wmpMediaItems element. Let’s look at both of those for Artist and Albums:

<wmpMediaItems
    name="Artists"
    propname="Artist"
    attrname="WM/AlbumArtist"
      />

<wmpMediaItems
    name="Albums"
    propname="Album"
    attrname="WM/AlbumTitle"
      />

That’s it. It’s that simple. In fact, these elements will actually pay attention to changes in the media library and they’ll automatically update themselves with the new artists and albums. This could have been done with Jscript and the Media Player OCX, but since I really wanted this to work super well, I just went ahead and included it directly in the schema.

There are a lot of other commands in this macro, but instead of telling you all the details, I’m going to leave it for discussion in the comments…

One of my favorite commands here is the “Play something by [artist]” command. Try it out. See if you can see how it works.
