Step 2b: Registry Hacks for my must have apps

Posted by reydiodj, Mar 3 2006, 08:25 PM in K-JAM/MDA BKA: HTC Wizard

Yesterday I posted about my must-have apps that I have to have in Main Memory. Now I want to post a couple of Registry hacks that I use to enhance my usage of them.

#1. Enable MS Voice Command activation from BT headset

This is a great tip posted by rilot at xda-developers.com that works on both the Wizard and the JASJAR:

Install Voice Command to the default location.
Fire up a registry editor
Modify the string marked "path" from the default \Windows\SDDialer.exe to \Program Files\Voice Command\VoiceCMD.exe

Now, when you press your BT headset connect button, MS Voice command will fire up and take commands through the headset. It's reponses will be played through the headset too.

#2. Using The Core Pocket Media Player to replace Windows Media

Obtained from the HTC Wizard blog as well as seen on the orb.com forums, this hack makes TCPMP the standard application for streams instead of Windows Media Player which, in my experience has had a harder time streaming video and playlists.

- Associate TCPMP with Windows Media (.asx) in the TCPMP configuration (Options > Settings > Select Page > File Associations)

- Use a Registry Editor to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\Rai\:WMPLAYER
- In the String Value 1, replace wmplayer.exe with the path to TCPMP (“\Program Files\TCPMP\player.exe” when you have TCPMP installed in main memory, “\Storage Card\Program Files\TCPMP\player.exe” when you have TCPMP installed on your memory card). Include the quotes!

If you refer to the link above regarding this hack, they mention also that if you tend to prefer TCPMP, you can associate it with more or even all media types.
