  • My changes to ME v1.7x

    I have been playing with the MediaEngine 1.7.7 source code, and have added a few features that I want for my needs.

    They are as follows:

    1. Ability to load *.ogg files, as well as include them in directory syncing
    2. Option to display Time Remaining or Time Elapsed
    3. Option to display Total Track Time
    4. Ability to resume playback of music files from the point you were last at (providing you Exit to main menu, won't work if you pull the power)
    5. Ability to choose whether to shut down, standby or hibernate the PC (when running 2k/XP)
    **Added 23/09/03**
    6. When browsing in Playlists, will return to the last selected directory, rather than the beginning of the list
    **Added 29/09/03**
    7. Update to #6, it will now go up a directory, rather than returning to the same directory
    8. Application no longer hangs when returning from External Application
    9. Visualisation button on MP3 screen now starts Vis
    10. Ext App button on MP3 screen opens up External app and leaves music playing


    Bugs I know about and that I've fixed
    **23/09/03**
    1. When selecting a new playlist it now starts playback from begining of song, not wherever the last saved position from last song was. Fixed
    2. When moving forwards in directory listing and not moving up/down it would crash. Fixed




    To set these options you should be able to simply the executable over the existing file (backing up just in case), and going to the Settings menu. From here, once you select the options, it will make the relevent sections in the settings.ini file. (You don't have to delete your existing settings file, which should make it an easy upgrade). You will find the Shutdown options in the Directories & Startup tab, and the rest in the Appearance tab.


    I have tested this on my production machine, and all seems to work as it should. The existing problem of exiting to the main menu from the playlist screen still exists, so that's nothing to do with my coding! If there are any more problems, please let me know, and I shall try my best to fix them.


    I hope this adds some more support and features to ME1.7x which will tide some of us over til the release of 2.0


    You can download the updated EXE file from http://www.my105e.com/carputer/MediaEngine.exe


    Enjoy!

        I don't think the whole thing is there. Its only 159kb when the regular ME .exe is 1.01mb.

            My apologies.

            Seems my FTP client timed out when uploading from my laptop.

            I have now uploaded it in it's full form, and should download as 1.02mb (as there's some extra code it's a touch bigger than CarComp's previous release)

                  Lemme know some file extensions you want to play, and I'll add support for those extensions, but whether it will actually play them, you'll have to find out for me


                  Julie, I will chuck the source code up when I've finished playing

                      .MOV is really the big one I would like.

                        From looking at the source code, integrating QuickTime support into Media Engine 1.7 would be quite a project...

                            One other thing...When scrolling through songs or movies, is it possible to have the highlighted bar stay in the middle of the list so it won't go all the way to the bottom of the screen? This way you can see the next few songs/movies in both directions.

                              AS far as i'm aware .mov (quicktime) is basically non-existant, there is no activex avaliable from apple for Win32 developers to use except for a NON-FREE one avaliable here http://www.skylark.ie/skylight/default.asp.

                              I have heaps of movie trailers (in .mov format) which i'd love to play in my CarPC, but i can't find a lot of info for implimenting mov playback in a windows app.
