    Slingbox/Slingplayer plugin?

    Has anyone thought of coding one? (I would do it if I weren't a dimwit )

    I wish some1 would make one also. I mean you can add it as an app, but it sucks to have it open up in its own external window.

    Plus it would be nice to have nice big finger-friendly buttons as well.

    Your right about that. Sling Player does have a UMPC Skin, but even with that its still hard to press buttons. If you want my opinion, all you clever programmers, is do not base your plugin on the Sling Player for PC, but base it on the Sling Player for mobile phones. It has a standard remote, unlike the PC version that uses a direct picture of the remote for that device. The mobile version has a generic remote, which could easily be made to have big buttons for Car PC users.

    I did not make a Plugin, but I just added the Slingplayer as an Application. I have it set to full screen mode and have it set to auto connect to last Slingbox and it works great.

    Only problem I have is I have a wireless remote but the number buttons do not press numbers on the PC. Anyone know how I can edit the settings on the remote or in windows so when I press 1 on the remote it types in the number 1.

    Here is the remote I have.

    Is the Sling Player embeded inside Centrafuse though? Thats why we want a plug-in. I hate having to close out Sling Player then hitting X on the screen CF pops up also.

    I am also willing to pay too. Im worried though that creating a plugin now would be pointless. Sling Box is getting ready to launch a new player, if they havent already done so. I remember reading about a tool for CF that can grab and list the window information so you can embed programs into CF. Does that program still exist? I have a few other programs I would like to try (Gens Sega Emulator) and a few more. I dont know how to manually go about getting window info.

    I would be ok with embedding with the exception of channel number buttons and channel preset buttons. Those are too small in the player software. The play/stop button is nice and big and finger-friendly so that's ok.

    If they are coming out with a new one, even better, we'd base the plugin off the latest, no? I'll bet their SDK won't change much from the current version anyway.
