Getting a sound to play on alarm

Post by kennbr34 » Tue Sep 04, 2018 6:20 am

Okay well I had hacked in a fix for this

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=27129

But since Chrome upgraded from that version to 68.blahblahblah it no longer works. Apparently they're implementing a whole new API.

I suppose my other recourse would be to make a script that will play a soundfile on my system and get it to trigger on an event? I thought there was an option for that, but then Google'ing for it, I just found a bunch of references to a FAQ page that seems to not exist.

This is the best I can find and I don't really understand how it would help with this situation.

So I can use OPT_TRIGGERS and zmtriggers.pl, but then I have to write an entire control script to tell it when to stop and record?

Can't I just have a script that launches when an event is triggered so that I can simply put

Code: Select all

play somefile.wav
Or the equivalent in there and get an audible warning with an event has triggered?
