  • An alternative way to use frodo

    I've always had a problem with the embedded song listing. It was always so small I could barely see a song let alone choose it. With the album and artist box the problem way only compounded. The new frodoplayer is so customizable, though, that I was able to almost completely change the way I use frodoplayer. The full screen vis mode is now what I use as the main player and the "main" screen is now just a full screen song browser and menu! UPDATE: I've made some progress on the skin. Let me know what you guys think.
    Thanks,
    Cobelli

Please read "MOCKUP", I do not expect anyone to like how it looks. I'm really only posting it because if anyone else is interested in this kind of layout there are probably some buttons I will need to add back (I don't use the volume controls). Anyway, let me know what you think. I've made it an actual skin for those that want to see it in practice. http://s11.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=6...65AE570D450562

        I have the same problem i have so many mp3s when i try and scroll on a 7 inch touchscreen i end up missing hundreds of songs.

        Is it just me why cant it be like this

        Artist down left hand side ,click on the artist and it opens out on the Right hand side with that artists songs without repeating the artist just the song name.

          If ya'll would actually open the settings menu and read, then you
          would find most of your answers.

                    Yeah you asked why it can't just have the artist on one side, and title on
                    the other. Well there is the option to have only titles displayed.

                    And by the way guys, clicking the scroll BUTTONS scrolls 1 item, hold it
                    down a couple seconds and it will skip a PAGE.

                        It's got good potential. I like it.

                          The problem is the more artist and tracks you have the more sensitive the slider will seem to be as it is traveling the same distance to cover more.

                          The only way i can scroll my 5000 ish artist is to put them in A to Z folders that way i only have 26 folders to scroll down.
                          Click on say A and all the artists in A then end up in the bottom bigger window and then i have say only 300 songs to scroll down.This way you have to set it back to artist - song and then if the artist has a long name you end up cutting the song title short becauseyou cant fit it all on the screen.

                              If i am the only person to suffer this then you dont need to do anything.

                              Would it work if you had one longer list as artist from top to bottom then you click on a artist and then that same list turns into that artists tracks.
