Soundcloud next track/previous track not working
When trying to use the soundcloud remote the forward and back buttons only seek forwards and back. I've tried using both the next track function and the seek forward function but both just skip ahead a few seconds, they don't actually go to the next track.
Yeah for me too. This definitely used to work. I think it must be something on the code of the website.
Pushing shift+right on the keyboard will go to next track, and that is what the UR remote does, but it works on the keyboard and not on the remote.
I tried using Eventghost to send shift+right, the same problem occurred. I dont know how to explain it, but the website's code must be such that it doesn't accept a coded version of that input. I cant remember the example but I have come across this once before for a keyboard combination shortcut..
I also tried replacing remote's code with two seperate buttons:
<button text="Hold Shift" onHold="shift_hold" onUp="shift_release" /> <button text="Right" onTap="right" />
This doesnt work either.
Ok have a workaround.
I noticed that Soundcloud does accept shift+right from UR if the numlock key is off.
I changed the code in the remote to turn numpad off, hit shift+right (or left for previous track), then turn numpad on again.
--@help Previous track actions.previous = function() keyboard.stroke("numlock"); keyboard.stroke("shift", "left"); keyboard.stroke("numlock"); end --@help Next track actions.next = function() keyboard.stroke("numlock"); keyboard.stroke("shift", "right"); keyboard.stroke("numlock"); end
You can replace the existing text in your remote with this.
Or if you like you can download full replacement here. Added benefit there is I added a "Loop This Track" button that was written into the remote.lua file, but was not into the layout.xml. Tapping it is like typing "shift+L" on your keyboard in Soundcloud, which doesn't look like it does anything, but it repeats the currently playing song/mix.
If you have any trouble editing/installing, you can see: https://www.unifiedremote.com/tutorials/how-to-install-a-custom-remote
Or post back here :)
If you use Soundcloud a bit, "Watch" this topic too, hoping to get this knocked over in next couple of weeks.
Hi Nathan, new install here and didn't work - I just turned off NumLock on the Win machine and was good :)
Would be great if the 'Like' button showed if it was on or off... I have to guess at whether I've previously liked something or not, but then run the risk of unLiking something I really actually love (!) ;-)
The button would have to get feedback from Soundcloud website - definitely not an easy fix, but possibly tying in with the topic I recommended to Watch in my previous post (just realised it's been a long "couple of weeks" woops..)
I presume you're not able to see the Like heart on the website while you're using the remote?
I'll definitely have a tinker in the next few days..
