Description

Screenshot

The AudioCD plugin controlls the CDROM drive to play audio CDs. Because the DVB card is not controlled, one has to connect the drive with the internal LineIN input of the DVB card or of the sound card. Therefor one need the audio cable bundled with the CD drive or the motherboard.

Over the OSD the plugin shows the current Song and the quantity of songs on the CD.

A better alternative to this plugin is the MPlayer plugin.
