PlaySound for WM

Here is an example of how big XDA-Developers is, a useful application created by XDA member thx1200 is simply lost on our forums, so we decided to bring it back despite it has been over 5 months since its been published.

If you need to play a sound and vibrate your Windows Mobile phone in a script-like setting, this application will be useful for you. PlaySound will work on WM 5 and up on touch and non touch screens. The developer mentions there won´t be any updates, but if you need more features feel free to use the source and compile your own as he included the full source code.

[App][Apr 24 2010] PlaySound – Command line sound player / vibrate for scripting

Description
I had a need to play a sound and vibrate my phone in a script-like setting (specifically, actions in the amazing Rhodium Keyboard Controller app). I couldn’t find a simple app to let me do this. So I wrote one! It took about 10 minutes. :-) I now share this with you because I’m sure somebody else has had the same need.

To Use
1. Copy the PlaySound.exe file somewhere, like \Windows.
2. In your script or LNK, use command line arguments to tell it what to do. A single command line argument means that you are specifying a path to a sound to play. It will only play WAV files (sorry if you want WMA or MP3 etc you will need to convert). If you specify two arguments, it means you want to vibrate the phone. The first argument is the LED index of the vibrate (usually 1), and the second is length of time to vibrate in milliseconds.
3. If you do not specify command line arguments, or specify invalid ones (wrong path, negative number, etc.), it will fail without any notice (run, then immediately quit). This app will not tell you when something goes wrong.

Examples
Play the loudest.wav sound in \Windows
playsound.exe \windows\loudest.wav

Vibrate a Touch Pro 2 for half a second
playsound.exe 1 500

You can find more information in the application thread.
