Virtual DJ 8 TCP control interface

Post by michilson » Fri May 27, 2016 6:14 pm

Hello guys,

This is amazing software and I suggest it to everyone. I can not say enough good things about all your hard work.

Here's a feature I'd love to see.

I am a Mobile DJ and I currently Run Virtual DJ 8.

I'd love to see a Plugin for the DJ software that connects to QLC+ Via TCP

The overall goal is to set Commands with Cuepoints in a Music track so that as the song plays it generates commands that allow cues, buttons, or sequences to be turned on and off or indexed to the next cue.

Freestyler (lighting software from denmark) has this feature. Maybe you can look at there implementation and get some ideas as to how this might be accomplished.

I know this is a huge request but I think it would be very useful integration into other command based systems as well to have a TCP command system available.

Thanks guys! I will gladly test bed anything you come up with to help. I wish I knew coding better to be part of the development team.

I don't think the freestyler protocol is going to be implemented anytime soon. There are more important things (like qlc+5).

Qlc+ accepts midi, osc, dmx, artnet, websockets so maybe you can find a way how to connect vdj to it.

Mixxxx, another dj sw can send midi to qlc+ as there was a discusssion about sending beats (there's a howto in github wiki).

edit: added links

What Jano said, and also: where are the specifications of the VDJ TCP protocol that I can examine ?

In fact, it's a Freestyler protocol. The specification is called "Sendmessage and TCP.pdf" and it is supposed to be included in FS installation.

I've found something here: http://documents.mx/documents/sendmessa ... tcpip.html

VDJ plugin is here: http://www.virtualdj.com/addons/15834/freestyler.html It seems that it requires some kind of licence, so it may be hard to test without one
(it's possible that free registration is enough for that).
