Mp3 doorbell

I'm trying to hook up a relay to the wires leading to a broken door chime in a way that when the button is pressed it causes the mp3 player to play an audio clip. what I need help on is the speaker, what I would like, is to have the speaker turn on when the button is pressed and to stay on for 5 or so seconds after the button is released. How would I do that?

Xvid & MP3

These two seems to be the most popular video "backup" codecs on the internet (if you know what I mean). Since I started playing the pirate game on the internet, I always wanted to transcode all my video files using these two. Over the past two years, I have probably wasted several gigabytes of Google's bandwidth in a frustrating and tiring search to find an easy way to do this. If anyone have found one or a nice compact free program, please please come forward and help a brother out. If you know a why to do so with VLC, it would be da boom.

MP3 books to ZUNE

I just got a Zune, I like to listen to recorded books while I work, which is reasonably easy to do with the Zune interface software and most books on CD. THE PROBLEM is books recorded as MP3 files. Strangely enough here is an "MP3 Player" that cannot handle MP3 data directly... At least this is my experience so far. Placing a MP3 recorded book CD in the drive and while I CAN listen to it on the laptop using Zune's Software interface. Trying to transfer the files to the Zune unit creates error files that are unusable and so far I have not been able to remove from the Zune. Admittedly I'm a newbe to the Zune but have been using computers since the Atari 800 came out too many years ago for me to admit to...ANY help would be appreciated. Possibly there's something I just have not found as yet.

power pack for battery powered mp3?

I am wondering if its easily possible to convert a mp3 that runs on AAA to mains via a power pack, which we all seem to have plenty of laying around. i realise that the AAA battery is 1.5v or there abouts while the closest spare power pack i have is 4.0v dc / 350mA will it work, or is it possible to further step down so it would be suitable ? via electonics - or do i need to find a powerpack that matchs a AAA battery voltage. i was going to wire this to the battery terminals ... or am i just looking for trouble? lol

What sort of mp3 output quality would a radio station be? (Please) Answered

My car stereo chews up the cd's - pretty much because the shock absorbers are rubbish. Way to go, Chevrolet... So I got a car fm transmitter that plays mp3s - and it's great stuff. Yay! (and cheaper than new shocks, too!) However, I want to cram as many mp3s on the player as I can (it's only 4gb) so I'm going to convert my mp3s to a lower quality. I guess as I'm happy with  records on the car radio then I reckon I don't really need cd-quality mp3s. (I can listen to hi-fi at home ;-) I did a quick Google, but found no answer to my question - what sort of mp3 output quality would a radio station be? I'm happy to reduce the frequency sampling as well as the bit-rate. Many thanks guys.

Cheap way to make an arduino play multiple sounds (MP3/WAV)?

First off, I know that doing this straight forward is not possible. The are a few ways I think I can do this. The main one I'm looking at is to have a MP3/WAV board hooked up to a speaker. I'll have two setups, one that is set to have three sounds (start, stop, fire, and only one of those three sounds would play at a time) and the second setup would have an alarm (this would have to play at the same time as the fire sound).  The issue I'm running into now is that I would like to have this all on the same PCB, as I plan to make a barebone arduino.  I'm sure there are better ways to do this, or that someone has a schematic to make just the sound board. Either will work. Thanks in advance!

9V battery and LM7805 power a audio AMP failled? Answered

Hi,All I use a 9V battery to pass power through a LM7805 to an arduino pro mini,a MP3 module,it works fine.later i am not satisfied with the low voice of the speaker,then i added an Amplifier module.the AMP module is a PAM8403-5V(could be USB powered),but the speaker produce weird sound.  it seemed the PWR was not enough,so i added an extra 5V supply to the PAM8403 module,this time it sounds fine. But i don't wnat to use two PWR sounces to power them.cause it will be bulky,is the 9v battery OK to power them all?or maybe i should use two LM7805s,one for arduino and MP3 module,and another for the PAM8403 module.

Button Activated MP3 Player

I need to buy or build a device to play a single song in MP3 format on the push of a button, similar to one of those used in stuffed animals or greeting cards. I need to be able to hook it up to a small external speaker to make it a little louder. I a building a Nickelodeon Guts trophy for a friend of mine and would like to put this device in the base with a button on the top or front to play the theme song. Any ideas how I can go about buying or building something like this? I'm on a shoestring budget here, and not terribly handy with electronics, so I really need some advice.

push button mp3 player?

Hey. I was hoping somebody could help me with an idea i have for a costume. I'm making a costume for Tony Stark from Iron Man 3, with the headset. I can make the headset, but I wanted to add something to it. I want to be able to put a small device that will play sounds (JARVIS quotes) when you push a button. What I'm envisioning is something like you see in some toys. It has multiple sounds, but one button. It plays through one sound effect when you push the button, the next one the next time you push it, and so on. I've seen ones that will do a sound for each button with multiple buttons, but that's not really what I want. One button, multiple sounds, and it cycles through them. Thanks.

MP3 player - Car Unit Help?

OK, here's the deal. My truck's stereo finally kicked the bucket and now I have no way to play tunes. The old unit had an aux input, which was the only thing I really used (to play my MP3 player). I'd like to make a small, simple unit that just has a jack, power switch, and volume control I could mount in my truck that would run off of 12V and power 4 existing speakers (8 ohm). After looking around at other Instructables, I realized that I don't really know much about amps. I think I could wire one up, however, if I had a diagram. I have a couple of LM386N's laying around I could use, if I knew how... So, could someone please help me out on how to make an amp for this? And any other helpful info? Thanks a lot!

Why did my MP3 player die?

I have a philips 1 gig MP3 player that has stopped working. When the power button is pressed nothing happens. When I plug it into the computer (win XP) I get the beep that indicates the computer is noticing something at the port but the computer does not register it as a device or a drive. In the past when I plugged it in the player would light up and show that the battery was charging now, nothing. I have tried it on a different computer and also opened it and disconnected the internal battery and then reconnected it- no luck. Also I tried the reset button - no luck. any ideas?

how to make an audio system out of a old radio?

For my birthday i once got a radio kit to make your own radio. It's very basic. It consists out of batteries, speaker, amplifier, preamplifier (series of risistors and stuff), detector, am tuner and fm tuner. It also has an volume control integrated. (see pictures) As I am only 16 years old and not very familiar with electronics I need some help for the next thing. I am very interested in everything that has to do with technical stuff. So I was wondering if I could elimate the fm and am tuner out of this circuit and turn it into a mp3-player speaker. Is this possible? If so, could anyone tell me how?
