    Hey aychamo,

    Firstly, thanks for developing such a great front end, nice and simple and functional - love it! I just wanted to know - does AMP support streaming audio and video from an iPod? I keep all my media on my 60Gb and just wanted to be able to plug it in and play through the front end?

    yeah, I thought about that too, as my intel mac only has a 60 gig drive and I have about 40 gig of content to watch and play (music videos, movies and mp3's) So if there was some way for plug and play, and mount it as a drive for AMP to read from directly, that would be awesome! Also it would make keeping both the car mac and home mac sync issues simple!

    hi,

    i finally found out a way to feed audio into the visuals..

    get soundflower v1.2 (Universal) from http://www.cycling74.com

    with this you can route Quicktime or System audio output as the input which is used on some Quartz Composer (.qtz) visuals used in AMP...
    i swapped all the compositions currently used in AMP (the non audio-reacting ones) with my favourites...looks very nice, no noticable performance drop on P4 3.0 ghz (10.4.7 intel) and on G3 900 mhz (10.4.7 ppc).

    i want to make a 800x600 version now..ok?

    AMP VERSION 1.3 RELEASE
    ------------------------------

    Download: http://www.aychamo.com/amp/AMP.zip
    Source Code: http://www.aychamo.com/amp/AMPSource.zip
    Instructions: You should be able to copy it over and just start it up. If you notice any weird configuration problems, I would suggest nuking your entire ~/Library/Application Support/AMP directory (~ = your home folder). You should not have to re-import your music, pictures, or movies.

    Summary of Primary Changes:
    - Graphical "File-Open" for any "Open" buttons
    - Plugin Manager / App Launcher
    - "Colors" configuration option for the highlight bar (Thanks Raceer for the idea)
    - Show/Hide Mouse Cursor option
    - Tweaked some of the screens
    - Fixed all the previous mentioned bugs, with the pop-up "Now Playing" screen, etc
    - Wrote a new plugin example, more simple, sophisitcated..
    - I've been playing with this version for so long, you will notice other new things that I can't remember, or I did before I started using the changelog.txt

    - Fixed the bug associated with the music position slider in the above window

    - Removed included "MiscWindowAnimations.m" [too slow, thanks Apple!]
    - Changed the alpha of BezelBox to 0.90 (was 0.85)
    - Added an AMP Icon to the "About" window
    - Moved the segmented bar graphics for the volume up 1 pixel (in the vertical middle now)

    - Started using changelog.txt (lol)


    To-Do: I have a lot of things on my To-Do list.. But I want to keep them a bit of a surprise. I still have a few things up my sleeve

    Note: I was contacted in e-mail by someone interested in doing a XM radio plugin. So, hopefully that will pan out

    Note: I'M SURE THERE WILL BE BUGS! We've added a ton of stuff, a lot of code, and a lot of new logic, and replaced a lot of the old ****, etc. So if you notice bugs, PLEASE POST THEM ASAP!

    Okay, playing with the new version. very stable very nice!

    when I choose to import my music videos and pointed the file menu to the location, it found the videos, but, it calls the by the folder they are in ex backstreetboys/unknown album/ and the rest is unreadable because the file name is too long. Is there a way amp can read the tags and realize what is what? a movie from a music video?

    Also a suggestion, add a feature into disk utilities that says "use drive as primary source" allowing you to choose what drive (including an ipod)Amp will play the files from. Is that possible?

    Also on the visual using the rotating CD with art (my favorite) still a little clunky but only as it does the fliping action, otherwise it's very smooth and I love the glowing in the background!

    thanks for the great application!!!

    You mean it shows the folder name in the name of the movie, so the name of the video itself is unreadable due to it being so long a name? Good point. I suppose I should remove it listing what folder its in. Or perhaps I should make the movies like the file-open thing, where you just browse through the actual directory structurue? What do you guys think?

    Well, I definitly want to add "Play from iPod" capability. The problem is Apple doesn't give us an easy way to parse what is in the iPod. There isn't a nice "iTunes Music Library.xml" on the iPod (I wish there was!). There's a proprietary file in there, I think someone (gnat?) sent me source a while back to read it, so I'll check that out. I'd love to add "Play from iPod!" Like you would just plugin your iPod, and AMP would bring up a screen for it to browse around and play from it.

    Hmmm. It does that on my computer too. I thought it was just my comp cause I have so much **** open at once. I'll see what I can do in the quartz file and try to reduce the power it's taking. I'm still a pretty big idiot when it comes to quartz composer.

    Thank you man!

    BTW - if AMP *ever* crashes, please please tell me and tell me what happened that made it crash. I've only had it crash on me a few times, and it turned out it was due to a corrupted movie I was trying to play.

    I'd just prefer it to list the movie or video name. Going thru folder by folder and picking out every one of over 200 music videos would be a pain!

    I really wish AMP had a seperate Music Video selection that you could just look up music videos in it and also import it there. Or a way AMP could just tell itself hey this is a music video, without using the genre thing.

    thanks again!

    i love the plugins, I can add my touchkit program so that when my screen is acting up, I dont have to go and find it. VERY GOOD AND HELPFULL. way to go, i love it all. and that screen saver does the same for me as well.
