Introduction: Control Winamp From Nintendo DS Browser

Picture of Control Winamp From Nintendo DS Browser

Here is a quick and easy way to use your Nintendo DS Browser to control Winamp.

-I have updated the skin to version 1.01, which now includes a search page. This search page is similar to the library browser page, but doesn't load your entire library at start.

Step 1: Download and Install Browseamp

First off, I assume you are running Winamp. If not, go grab it.

You will need to get the Browseamp plugin for Winamp. You can use the installer linked from this page, or look for the newest version here or here

Next, install browseamp.

Step 2: Download and Add DS Browser Skin

Download attached ZIP file, which contains the DS Browser skin.

Navigate to your Winamp home directory. Then enter the plugins dir, and finally browseamp.

You should now be faces with a path similar to "C:\Program Files\Winamp\Plugins\Browseamp\".

The Zip contains a folder named "DS Browser Skin". Extract this file into the browseamp directory.

Step 3: Configure Browseamp

Open Winamp, then enter preferences.

Navigate to the Plugins>General Purpose submenu.

Select Browseamp, then Configure.

Start the server on port 80, take note of the displayed ip address under Info.

Now, go to the skins tab, and from the drop down menu, select DS Browser Skin.

Step 4: Connect With Your DS and Have Fun

Ensure that the computer running browseamp has no firewall or similar measure that will block incoming requests. Also, be sure the DS is connecting to the same network this computer resides on.

Enter the previous noted IP address into your DS Browser and connect.

Switch to SSR mode.

The page that loads should be identical to the one shown in this photo.

I'm not quite sure what this instructable is about.

kerbose (author)jamnoopers2007-07-29

Use the DS web browser to connect to a control server running on port 80 of your home computer.

jamnoopers (author)kerbose2007-08-10

looks like it has something to do with music? is it so that you can play music through the ds browser?

kerbose (author)jamnoopers2007-08-10

...I am sorry if English is not your first language... As stated, it CONTROLS Winamp... Winamp is a media player. This allows you to remotely control Winamp. So, you use your DS to control what your computer plays. This is great for people who have media systems wired in their homes.

Darkshot (author)kerbose2007-09-29

so.......its a remote for your media center? hmmmmmmmmmmmmm so basicly you could just load up your say umm..brothers winamp and put it on your ds and then when you wait to see if hes listening to music change the music? get back me me >:D

kerbose (author)Darkshot2007-09-30

Darkshot (author)kerbose2007-09-30

kerbose (author)Invader Grim2007-07-26

Yea, its a web browser that lets you surf the net over wifi connections with the DS.

kerbose (author)2007-06-30

Not that I have seen, and I don't have a Wii to test one, but if you go to browseamp's site, you can get some skins as starting points, then go from there

ongissim (author)2007-06-30

Is there a skin for the Wii?
