Hi,

If you want to sync your light color to the current song you're playing, then check out this plugin I made.

https://github.com/TroyFernandes/MusicBee-Philips-Hue

I have a full writeup on the Github page including installation so check it out if you want to learn more. This is something I did as a personal project and its the first time I've ever made code with the intention of other people using it, so sorry if theres a few bugs. This is still a learning process for me.

If you do end up using it, let me know. I would like to know what you think. I plan on adding a feature to sync the beats to the lights, but we'll see how it goes.

Hello TRoJAnV,


i'm very excited trying get your plugin working :D
Unfortunately there seems to be a problem with it.

I'm currently using MB Version: 3.2.6582
and your plugin with Version: 1.1.0

As soon I pressed the Save button in the settings dialog I get the following error:


MusicBee v3.2.6582.38854 (Win6.3), 20 Jan 2018 19:12:

Obviously several times wrong path variables used by your plugin.
The paths are seem only be valid on YOUR system.
Your could you check this please?

Greetings

I put out a new version. v1.1.1. Did you try this version?

I made a mistake when saving the settings file and fixed it with this release. If it still dosen't work let me know. I'm not too sure what I would have to change in how the dll's are added as I was under the assumption they get compiled and outputted to the debug/release folder. I'm fairly new to C# so if you know the answer I would love to know.

Philips Hue 1.1.1

208/5000
It seems to be about
Just-In-Time Debugger
which must be enabled by Visual Studio, but nobody has said whether by code or enterprise
I am asking for help in this project, there is no green idea about Visual Studio

I moved your post to the plug-in's thread so the author might have a better chance of seeing it. But since he hasn't been on the forum since September of 2018, it would seem that this project has been abandoned.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 beta patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Check out the MusicBee Wiki.
