  • FreeICE v2.0 alpha 1 coming soon...

    Many thanks to MP3car for giving me my own forum....

    FreeICE v2.0 is an all new Frontend. I lost the source the v1 and since vb6 is now no more, its time for an update I thought.

    Alpha 1 release will contain the basic media player which will play all audio/video files
    Alpha 2 release will contain navigation embedding (need to know which one is the most popular)
    Alpha 3 release will contain radio (Silabs as that's all I have at the moment)
    Alpha 4 release will contain gallery / file copy / settings screen and other bits
    Alpha 5 ....

    Things I'm thinking about adding...
    Find my mates, locates your friends live on gps (live tracking)
    Enforcers plugin's
    Dab radio (need a unit to play with)
    Phone bluetooth headset support
    SWF Widgets on main screen

    It's coded in backend with Flash frontend. It's completely skinable in flash (swishmax is what I use) and I will be releasing 'how to skin' videos soon. In my eyes it's just as easy.. if not easier to skin than RR!

    I'm currently just finalising the media player at the moment and expect an alpha release to be within the next week... keep watch :-)

    more to come...
