  • A multimedia toolkit app.

    Im not sure if you folks already know about this program. In any case, i used to use it a long time ago to make my first simple interface for an mp3car project. I ran across the old link and thought id post it here...

    Its a pretty powerful toolkit, you can make a number of different graphical menus/application launchers/standalone audio-mp3 player interface etc. Im guessing that some may find this app to be quite nifty!

    Yeah I used it too a couple years ago to make a graphical interface for a CD. The software is great, it never dawned on me to use it for a carputer interface! If I wasn't using Cobra I would give it a try. M.A.V.I.C. System

      THis app is pretty damn cool. I have been debating on creating something until C4 becomes available but kept putting it off. I downloaded this software and within 10 minutes , I created a 'generic" front end to control DVD,TV,GPS,CD,etc. All I have to say is that this app kicks major a$$....THANKS!!!

        you can also try Auto Play Menu Studio

        It's great and has lots of options.

                For $300 that auto play menu from indigo rose is a bit unreasonible for this application I think..

                The $40 they want for the Multimedia Builder is a bit more reasonible.. plus you get to try it out first.

                Any body try using this? I'm trying to make a decent mp3 player in it with a better play list system.. not too much luck so far.

                mp3car system is currently FUBAR and finances do not allow for a correction of that situation

                  I am

                  I plan on using MB as a front end basically. Attached is a rough sketch of what I've come up with so far.

                        oh ya, i used to have Gravity auto PC, but don't anymore. Just never changed it.

                          hey has anyone here actually build their car pc software with this ..??

                          looks like a nice .. software

                          Just wondering how you make it load DVD?

                            im not sure if u can actually play a dvd with it... but you can launch dvd apps etc.

                            the software is pretty good at being an mp3/audio player, and doing menu screens with buttons etc.

                            There are also a lot of 3rd party plugins that give u ability to make a video player out of it aswell...

                            I doubt ppl realise the full potential of this app to make a sweet graphical car pc interface.
