My daughter as part of a 7th grade project wants to build , what I am calling a computer jukebox. She plans to use a touch screen moniter and a computer that is about 5 yearrs old but has never been used, don't know anything about it yet as it is a freebie from grandma. I have a hard drive with some 1800 songs on it she wants to borrow songs from. I have several questions that I need help with in just thinking about starting this project.
Would the audio output of a computer be enough to run 2 speakers for this?
What else would I need to make this work?
What kind of programs are available to pick songs and play them, 1 selection at a time or multiple selections, playback options?
Can I go from the audio outlet on the computer to the auxiliary input on my Sherwood receiver as a way of controlling volume?
These are just some random questions as I am looking for any help, advice or knowledge on starting with this. Would really appreciate hearing from anyone who has done something like this or knows about something like this that could get me going in the right direction. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
