Staff review

Winamp mute for phone rings

You need to record a wav file of your phone ringing and put it in the correct directory for this to work. Useful plug-in, although, it's really not that hard to manually mute speakers when the phone rings...and you have to leave your microphone on at all times to make this work.


Good concept - It's a good concept, but could you make it pause instead of mute? - October 18, 2003 by Michael Heath

Brillent - Very nice, brillent concept. It would be better if you could get the modem to pick it up instead of the mic. Is there any support for 2 phone, say a mobileand a home phone? Keep up the good work. - October 12, 2001 by Giles Cotterill

hmmm - i gotta agree with the staff review on this one... It's a cool idea. Something that would be neat though...have the plugin detect a ring at the modem. things to keep in mind regarding that.... If you use dialup internet, you would either need a seperate modem to detect the ring, or you would have to be on broadband internet (i.e., DSL, Cable Modem, LAN), so that your modem would be free. about expanding on your program, and making it voice-controlled. you record your voice "play", "stop", etc....i think you get the idea, just a more extensive version of what youre doing now... - October 4, 2001 by Cameron Miller
