Well, I've been looking in the market and elsewhere for a cool music player but I think most of the options are terrible. Either they are:
1. too dark, eg. winamp
2. too small, not optimized for a 1024x600 screen. Winamp again, which looks terrible, the dithering background makes it unusable, plus, no video.
3. No gesture support for some.
Ideally, I'd like one music+video combo, but it seems that you'd have to have two different ones.
Also, it would be great to have the ability to stream from my regular carputer to access storage (I have a 640GB media disk there). But I wouldn't like to choose a folder for that, it should be seamlessly (eg. by playlist).
Here's the list I'm considering:
The latest Nook Color Gingerbread Phiremod 6.3 includes the new google music app with 3D scrolling through album art, which is nice, but no gesture support.
I really, really like Laucher 7, too bad it's portrait only.
Where I can find google's car dock? the official one? All I can find is a car widget and a very dark car dock (basically it's all black with white fonts, it will turn the display into a mirror!)
I checked your suggestion, not sure it's available now.
Right now I'm using Power amp, there is a white skin for it, but it's kind of bland, and there's no gesture support (edit: I'm wrong there is support for swipes). This one:
Best Video Player so far has to be Act 1. Some Features:
I really like that there are zones in the screen where you touch and you can scrub back and forth while viewing videos (kind of) - so don't need to slide your finger in a teeny tiny scroll bar, you can tap to pause, no buttons (why? it's a touch screen!); slide finger on the sides for volume control, etc.Playlists (with random play)
Thumbnails (only on devices with Android 2.0 or newer)
Video zoom options (aspect, full, custom)
SRT subtitle support
Bookmarks (up to 20 for each video)
Home screen shortcuts to videos and playlists
Play in the background while you run other apps or turn off the screen
On-screen clock, timer, and battery meter
Seeking by seekbar, screen gestures, trackball, and D-pad
Screen brightness and button brightness controls (buttons on Froyo only)
Resume points remembered for all your videos
Video sorting and grouping options
Lots of shortcuts, conveniences, and configurations
Plus support for playlists is great for music videos/short cartoons (they're short, you don't want to chose everyone of them), etc. Also, the play in the background feature is great for music videos, you may not want to watch the whole thing anyway, you can browse or check something else without interrupting the music.
I tried Mobo, YX, many others, they maybe support more file types, but I like the gallery as a launcher, so I have to use mp4/m4v file formats or it won't show. Plus, H264 files are smaller and more efficient anyway.
I do like to have a 3D launcher with thumbnails, like the gallery, only more organized.
One thing I can't stand on Android: apps that have to show file extensions and useless folders (not media only)...WTF...Geeky, but...c'mon. I'm don't want to look like I'm logged as a developer when I'm watching silly videos (or my 6 year old). Btw, I can now have a shortcut on my home screen to resume playing the last video played. Awesome, I'm sure kids will love that.
Does it support .flac?

I'm still a fan of mortplayer for music. You can scrobble your tracks with lastfm, you can customize the display such as colors, transparency, background and even car mode. You can configure it to auto play upon connection to your headset (which is detected as the same if you are using A2DP). It shows the track names not the extensions and you can have playlists, configure the playback (e.g. shuffle, repeat, etc). Plus it rotates with your device. In any case this is what I have been using on phone for over a year and I am still using on my tablet in my car.
