Windows Media Player - Controlling Playback Speed


#1

I’m using WIN32OLE to control Windows Media Player. I want to be able
to change the playback rate. My code is:

require ‘win32ole’
song = “some_song.wma”
player = WIN32OLE.new(‘WMPlayer.OCX’)
player.OpenPlayer(song)
player.settings.Rate = 0.5

The “Player.settings.Rate = 0.5” seems to have no effect on the playback
speed.

If I do

print player.settings.isAvailable(‘Rate’), “\n”

it returns “true”, so this method should be available.

Can anyone help?
