    Suggestions for the software/stuff I can't do!

    Ok this software looks the best potentially from wat i've seen, lets winamp do the work and does its job well. I'm gona put a phat list of stuff i can't do or the software can't do here. I hope its not taken as offensive, i'm just putting suggestions that I hope 2 see in the new version. Here goes:


    My trackname is shown at the top but thers no visualisation at the bottom. I think ther shud b so y isnt it ther?


    The track selection is excellent, with the folders, playlists and then the ability to put it all in 1. Its just like winamp and thats how it shud b, cuz they've spent years refining it. If shuffle and repeat cud b incorporated that wud b gr8 as well. One crucial feature I feel is missing is the 'j' feature wher u simply press j, type the first few letters of a track u want, scroll 2 the correct one and press enter. It offers very quick selection and is pretty much the best way I no 2 get ne song u want.

    Optional mouse integration could b a good idea for those who use a trackball/mouse.

    Finally, my video will play in winamp but not in the actual auto play screen (so effectively its not visible 2 the user). I dont no why this is but perhaps wen a video is selected it shud load the video in the main screen like an mp3 with the name at the top and then scroll the top bar upwards (to go complete full screen). Perhaps every time a mouse movement is detected (or button press like volume) the top bar could scroll down again. This is very similar to Window Media Player 9 (maybe that could/should be incorporated).

    Like I say I'm tryin 2 giv constructive criticism cuz I'd like 2 c this software reach its potential.

    Not many people keep a keyboard handy for seaching for songs...mostly incase of crash or bug failer they keep a "spare" in the trunk. Wold be very hard to type and drive at the same time but hell its not my program we will see what mag does!

    Mag built this program to suit his needs so in this case a mouse was not needed I agrree that a mouse would be cool but also hard to operate!

    I dont use the built-in video player insted I upgraded to winamp 2.91 and use winamp to play my video files just make sure you create a new play list with them in there so Auto play can see it

    Well I thank you for the input as I think mag will do the same but I do know that he is very busy ATM and cant do any programing on auto play (just look at the post count on the boars and you will see what I mean!) but when he does get back to it im sure it will be a kick *** update!
