Karaoke file wont play
« on: October 28, 2012, 08:17:35 AM »
Hi Guys,

Just installed Karaoke Jukebox but carn't seem to play any files even the dummy files? The program counts down then nothing.
Videobox works fine on the same PC, running Windows XP and have installed net framework and karaoke codec etc.

Thanks for any help.

Well after a full reinstall of of XP and Karaoke Jukebox I still had the same problem. The program would count down for the 20 seconds but not play any sound or show the words.

In the end I double clicked on a .cdg file and windows media player pop up with a message saying "This file has an extension that is not recognized by windows" I just clicked "don't show this extension again" and then the file started to play with windows media player. I then retried Karaoke Jukebox and it now seems to be working fine.

The only thing now I would like to see is an option to go from videobox to Karaoke Jukebox and back without have to shutdown each program.

Yes I did install all three items before I installed Karaokebox.

That looks like what i'm looking for only think is there is no shut down button in party mode will have to bind a button to a i-pac. (Alt and F4)

One thing i noticed from your video, whats that pop up that comes up when you press the shutdown button on simpletouchFE?

Cheers.
