Help Please, I'm a newbie

Post by Truscott » Thu Jul 02, 2020 1:25 pm

I'm running Android 10 on my galaxy S10+, and have copied a script (from MM) saved as fwdrevbuttons.vbs.
But, I've no idea what to do now. If I go to MediaMonkey on my phone, I see only 2 folders, 'artworks' and 'files'. In 'files' there are 3 files (nomedia mmstore and storageinfo)

I'd be grateful if somebody could point me in the right direction. In the past 50+ years I've written many programs, but I'm a complete newbie at scripts. I've looked at "Introduction to scripting", but even, "Auto-scripts are located in the Scripts\Auto folder and its OnStartup method is executed when MediaMonkey starts." confuses me. Do I create a scripts\auto folder somewhere? I've no idea what "OnStartup" means.

I'm willing to spend time on this, but I'd like a push in the right direction. Maybe, "coding for idiots" or something like that ??

Thanks, John Owen

Scripts only work on MediaMonkey on Windows, not on MediaMonkey for Android.

Thank you, Lowlander

The search continues for a media player that has a 30 second (for example) forward/back buttons. They're handy when I'm listening to an audiobook
