Just wanted to show people it's coming along nicely.
So far this works:
MP3 player, without winamp, but uses winamp input/output plugins
DVD using mswebdvd control
Video using windows media player control 6.4 (some people don't like 9 )
Play by directory is all that is implemented so far.
fullscreen modes for video and dvd, working on one for mp3
external apps support with extracted icons & user configurable
shuffle play for vid & mp3
working on a lot of other crap, trying to get a beta out,
i would call this a pre-alpha
Note, the blue buttons in the pic above are not mine, they came from a skin from mediaengine named bigwheels by some guy named mike. They won't be in the finished product because I don't have permission to use them. If these are your buttons and you are offended by my screenshot I will remove it, I just needed some buttons for testing.
