I want to write a VB app to use a car player software since it has a directX control to meidaPlayer that plays almost every file I can think of. You might be thinking Media player sucks compared to WinAmp but it will allow easy file management with dasebase control along with quick program design. I plan on using serial communication using one Pic microcontoller to contol a standard 4X20 Hatichi LCD,with software control contrast using PWM, backlighting, IR Input, IR Output(to relay commands to radio deck),and autoshut down. Since the Pic will require too much prograrming to use a 16f84 I plan on using the new Flash pic that as built PWM, Serial comm, and plenity of extra I/O's. Using VB it will allow me easy communcation over a serial port without need for multiple plugins. I know how to write C++ code but have no idea on writing c++ windows dll for Winamp. I think VB will easier to manage and allow me to make a easier frontend on both the computer side and LCD side. While thats it, if you have any comments or ideas please reply.
