Topic: Ruby with WMP
I'm trying to use a Rails app to connect to Windows Media Player to get the currently playing media settings.
So far, all I've got is that I need to connect to WMP using the Ruby WIN32OLE extension.
Now, when I try to connect to an already running instance of Windows Media Player using.
@mp = WIN32OLE.connect('WMPlayer.OCX')
It shows me:
OLE server `WMPlayer.OCX' not running
HRESULT error code:0x800401e3
Plus I also have no idea about what operations are available to me, I haven't been able to find good documentation on the WIN32OLE extension, especially for WMP.
This link is pretty helpful on playlist management but still no information on currently playing media: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/script layer.mspx
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance and happy holidays!
