    looks good a great comprimise!

    yeah I'll give it some more thought, maybe that would be the way to do it.. but I guess it would be nice if Amp could just tell what the video is...

    The visual pop-up looks great. I am going on vacation for a week and can't wait to see how much progress is made in that period of time. Going to Cornerstone music festival.

    Anyway, I am not sure about the "x" button... would it be easier to "double-tap" the screen? I am not sure because I still don't have my xenarc in 800 x 480, but I will when I get back, and if no one else has put pictures up. I will.

    Hey guys,

    Just a quick note. For those of you who can't get your computers into 800x480, and are stuck in 800x600, I have found a way to put the visiualizations, movies, etc, into "full screen" [meaning take up whatever space you give it, instead of the typical 800x480] The UI itself will still be in 800x480, but some of the other stuff will be fullscreen.

    This is good news

    I was browsing http://web.mac.com/francoborgo/iWeb/.../Software.html and found a program called Display ConfigX(http://www.3dexpress.de/) and it has an option to change your screen resolution. I just have my normal computer with me now and I dont want to try it on this one. If anyone else wants to try and change thier screen to 800x480 you can try it out

    Just a quick note of what will be in the next version (I have a test tomorrow, so I'm not doing anything else on it today, but I should release the new version tomorrow in the evening (at least in my time zone):

    1. Clock Tastefully done
    2. The "visuals" pop-up window, this lets you control music from the visual window, without breaking out back to the music list. Also, in this view, it's optional if you want the view to fade out after a few seconds (leaving you back at the visual), or to remain permanently on screen. If you choose permanent on screen, you can still click the album art to get rid of the screen.
    3. iTunes visuals (note: it "works", but none of the visuals I have in iTunes show anything because iTunes isn't playing the music, but perhaps someone has visuals that aren't dependent on that)
    4. Optional to stretch visuals, etc, to full screen (for whatever reason)

    - The four above things are all "optional" from the new configuration menu.

    - Also, you won't have to manually delete your AMP.plist file anymore, but in an upgrade it will wipe all of your changes (which means you'll have to spend that whole minute to reconfigure it!)

    - Pending: Optional prevention of importing of certain playlists (ie, Library, Party Shuffle, Pod Casts, Purchased, Recently Added, Top 25 Most Played)
    - Pending: Playlist item view (lol)
    - Pending: radioSHARK favorites (lol, lol, lol)

    - Also, I was sitting in a boring neurology lecture, thinking about the best way to do the clock, and it dawned on me that I had completely skipped over a better way to programatically implement a lot of stuff in AMP. I had a short lunch today and replaced a few chunks a code, which should reduce overhead in certain areas by 1/2 to 2/3. Also it allowed me to remove a bunch of crap, so it's less to keep organized, etc.

    - And, as I'm typing this on AMP's web browser, I realize that it needs a way to pop-up the music controls, like the one in the visual view as mentioned above.

    Keep your eyes out tomorrow,
    Aychamo

    Hey this is great work.

    Ive been using it for a few days now and i am very impressed, thought i would have to wait a long for something like this to be produced.

    Even though i dont like to critisize, you did ask for feed back. There are some small issues:

    I run a 7" lilliput and when running at 800*600 its not full screen. I have a mac mini G4 and wont let me adjust to 800*480. The only other thing is that the volume control range is limited it seems the difference in volume between low and high isn't much.

    Oh is it possible to intergrate an equaliser or even the presets, or even just treble and bass, as i like different settings for different music.

    I think the work you have put into this is superb. A guy in a Golf Gti saw the visuals running on the screen while in traffic the other day, he was like "whoa!, what is that?", i then proceeded to show him the rest of AMP on the touchsreen and he said " where can i get one?" i said you cant buy them, you'll have to make it yourself, he was like oh and drove off. But everyone ive shown the carputer to wants one and they thimk AMP is very easy to use.

    Keep up the good work, its pure quality.

    Cheers
    nick

    Hey Nick!

    Thanks for the kind words. Volume control on Mac's seems somewhat limited. It really just adjusts the system volume. I'll see what I can do about amplifying it through the media interface Apple supplies to developers. I've only ever tested AMP on my PowerBook (and it's speakers suck!).

    Regarding the resolution. AMP is designed specifically for 800x480, so I don't think the interface will ever stretch to fit on 800x600. *However*, I'm releasing a version of AMP later today that will stretch both visuals and movies to fit the full screen (of 800x600, all resolutions.) And, the new version has a "visuals music control" so that you can control your music from within the visual via a little pop-up screen. So, on your 800x600 system, you can have the visuals full screen and still control music, etc.

    Have you looked at any of the articles on getting your Mac to show 800x480? I'm starting to get a little worried I won't be able to get mine into 800x480, lol!

    Let me know how it works out with the new version, later today!

    Thanks
    Aychamo
