Turns down the volume when the phone rings.

Turns down the volume when the phone rings.

Turns down Winamp's or Windows' volume when the phone rings. Uses any modem assigned to a COM port. Additional options to pause or stop Winamp, and pop up message.

Only opens the modem port when Winamp is playing. So if you use your modem for other purposes, just pause or stop Winamp before you try to connect.

New in 1.1!: Display caller ID info in the popup window. Should support more modems, even USB modems. Other bug fixes.

For more information, see the About box from the config window.

WinampRING - Turns down the volume when the phone rings.

Staff review

Nifty phone plugin

Makes things easy when you are listening to music and answering phones. Good amount of customization available to set the volume levels, etc.


Works great - I was having problems at first till I tried a different modem. Now I can crank up the tunes and not worry about missing a phone call because I can't hear it. Highly recommended and worth finding a modem to work with this plug in. I believe the modem I was using was defective so I cannot say if it would have worked with it or not had it not been defective. I am now using a Conexant D850 56K V.9x DFVc with it. I am also using the Winamp Web Interface plug in with this plug in so I can start the tunes back up while on another computer. Great plug in combo . - March 10, 2007 by Al Morrissette

If only! - Looks like a good plug-in but it would be better if it could be used with a wider range of modems, mine is connected via USB so I can't use it. Hope somethin can be done about it in the future! - June 25, 2005 by x x

Awesome! - Ever have to run to the computer to turn the music down before you answer the phone? Well, no more of that! Works as advertised, easy installation and simple interface. - November 1, 2004 by Brian Morachis

WoW! This is what I was looking for!!! - This is great! I can play my MP3's loud on my computer and when the phone rings it automatically decreases the volume so I don't have to run over! This works great, and it's easy to setup... finally making use of the telephone modem in my computer. Nice interface with easy to understand options. - October 27, 2004 by Dan Brock
