PostPosted: Wed Apr 06, 2005 11:08 pm    Post subject: Download voicemail, encode to MP3, and enqueue in Winamp Reply with quote Back to top

Works great for me. Anyone interested? Smile

I set up three e-mail accounts on my domain, one for Vonage to send the WAVs to, and two for that account to forward to (since Vonage only sends to one). The reason I wanted two accounts receiving VM is so my wife at home and I at work each receive all VMs.

The script is scheduled in Windows to run every five minutes. The one at home gets VM from one e-mail account, the one on my work machine from the other. These accounts are retreived via POP3, and I'm using JMAIL from DIMAC to do this (The Pro version is needed, or an equivalent control from someone else to do POP3). I also use the console LAME encoder for the MP3 work (free).

For each e-mail from Vonage, the script downloads the attachment, encodes it as an MP3 (I still can't believe Vonage doesn't give users an option for receiving VM in MP3 form), deletes the original WAV, gives the MP3 a name that exposes the calling number, date, and time (it'd do the caller's name where possible if Vonage would provide that in the e-mail as they do in the Web UI), and adds the MP3 to an M3U playlist. It then deletes the e-mail from the mail server. After doing this for each e-mail, the script finishes by enqueueing the M3U playlist in Winamp. I don't think WMP understands M3U playlists (which, when you think about it, is almost unimaginably stupid, given the format of an M3U).

When voicemail comes in, Winamp pops up with the message in the playlist editor. After listening to the message, I remove it from the editor; it's still in the file system folder. New messages overwrite the M3U I enqueue, so future messages only add themselves, not the whole folder's collection (which I delete at will, or rename to better describe them (actually I entitle them in the file's properties, and add the title column to that folder's view). It doesn't affect my normal music queue, except to add the VMs at the end.

What's been striking about this has been its reliability, ease of use, and utter invisibility. All in just 43 lines of VBS qickly cobbled together.

Again, anyone interested? Smile

Sounds similiar to using Rexx to poll POP3 server, bladeenc to create MP3, and then rename and copy to "private" web server directory, cgi script takes care of selective deletions, marking who "read" ....ah listened to ... them, etc..... Any "authorized" and "authenticated" user can pull and handle any message from the "queue", or pass a normal html link to another "user" to hand off the message to somebody else. ...can go back an re-listen to messages again and again... cron job to purge otherwise undeleted messages after 14 days.

More than one way to skin a cat.... however your 43 LOC is impressive.... But what happens when a MP3 pops into Winamp while you've stepped away but left things streaming? Does it play and nobody hears it?

Yeah, presently it plays right away. But only on my machine at work if nothing's playing (if something's playing, it merely enqueues). At home, it enqueues, pops up and sits there quietly. Different Winamp versions, but odd anyway.

Pretty good example yourself, sir!

DANGITALL!

I have everything working now with a free POP3 widget (which means this would be free for everyone), except deleting the e-mail on the server! Aaaargh!

Not giving up.

PostPosted: Sun Apr 10, 2005 1:32 am    Post subject: Anyone care to write a Winamp plugin? ;-) Reply with quote Back to top

Update:

Since Vonage STILL isn't sending out callers' names in voicemail e-mails (aaargh!), the script now scrapes Google for that information, where possible. Then it uses a CDDB DLL to write ID3 tags to the MP3, so that the sender's name and phone number appear in WinAmp (number, date and time are the Title, caller is the Artist). It also parks their full address in the ID3 comments tag.

I'm getting a bit far from Joe User's experience (I'm using the Gracenote SDK's control for the CDDB tag writing, and I'm still using JMAIL), but if I could just get this bloomin' free POP3 control to work for the delete function http://snipurl.com/dx7a it would be easy for anyone to use.

Dang.

One thing I'm realizing -- a WinAmp plugin would be very, very cool about now.

As I use Rexx and Rexx sockets (and don't use Windoze), I don't understand what roadblock you might be getting . All you need to do after you log into the pop server (you've done the USER and PASS commands) is to remember the message numbers from the LIST command and when you are done just do a DELE on the ones you pulled. You already got the message number from the LIST in order to do the RETR anyway, so what's the delete problem? A bug in the canned library you're using? Rolling your own read routine isn't that hard. When in doubt, just telnet to your mail server and issue the raw commands yourself (but be careful as the long uue encoded attachments aren't pretty in telnet <g>, so just do a TOP to get a few lines.
Good luck

I could probably telnet to my own account (a friend is hosting me), but I'd like this to work with any POP3-accessible account, such as gmail. And yes, you intuited correctly that the control I'm using has a busted delete function. Actually, the control I'm personally using is fine (JMail's pro version, from Dimac) -- but again, I'm trying to get something 'free" working, so anyone could use it. If ANYONE can get a delete to work with this sucker, let me know how: --> http://snipurl.com/dx7a

My code has mushroomed, meanwhile -- and there's no end in sight. It's getting ridiculous. I wanted to execute arbitrary actions against items in the WinAmp playlist, so I installed ActiveWinamp, a great scripting host for the app. I figured I'd add a way to allow user input of names for numbers not identified on the Google scrape, so that future calls could do a lookup there. Then I realized I might as well add all scrape data to the lookup as well, obviating scrapes on prior callers. Another right-click action from Winamp will be to call them back; that one's simple enough.

BTW, one great thing about using either the HTTP or Click2Call method -- it helps me find that danged cordless![url][/url]

I think gmail and other http based mail interfaces are a different animal rather than the more traditional POP3 mail servers supported by many ISP's. Anyway, I don't see gmail.google.com responding at all on the standard pop3 port of 110 even tho they mention "Free automatic forwarding and POP3 access"

For my part, I'm looking forward to the day when I can point my MXC record at google. Since I'm the patriarch of my entire family's e-mail, this will be very cool. Wink

Ah, I see ... gmail requires SSL. My ISP doesn't implement pop3s .. which really means any sniffer can see all my traiffic. Now I see your advantage of redirecting your mail exchange record. But the smtp traffic is still going to have the messages in the clear. On the other hand, I've often used iptrace to capture net traffic for debugging and ssl makes that much more difficult.
