      Ok thanks for reply will try it when it would be out !


      Found some month ago also a VB prog from a site here in germany.

      It plays movies music etc .

      www.nickles.de ( nicklesvision)

      but it's not freeware and they wanna have 40 4 it . but everyone can download and try it - sometimes some nag screens in shareware - found cobra better even if nicklesvision looks better .
      but its in german and u need to read the help file - no mouse only keyboard or remote control.

      Reagrds

        Quite a few people on the forum have developed software that interfaces vb and flash to create a vb/flash fully skinnable interface. I'm one of them, although mine isn't finished yet

        The software I am writing is not going to be the next cobra, but will be 101% freeware, probably open source and definitly does not include more than basic faq style technical support as I'm a full time student who has a life outside mp3car (well I lie about the last part, but everything else is true... ) The benafits of using flash is you can create your own interface smoothly and easily, including what you want and where you want it. The app simply handles controlling winamp or windows media player (still working on dvd support...), while handling playlists for mp3's. You can link to any program on your carputer from anywhere in the flash file, while all the data about the file being played is available to your flash file through actionscript and variables.

        My software has no official release date, but I can tell you it hasn't even made alpha yet as I have only just finished exams. However it is working pretty damn well so far, and will be feature packed when finally released.

              I open-sourced my program just to answer that question. Look in the News section of my site for the link. www.dynamoeffects.com/impee3 I'm trying to keep my bandwidth low, so that's why I'm not just posting a direct link to the software.

              Also, these threads:

                Gutter, your system looks really good the software too. The only thing i can say is the wires in the trunk. But i can't get Impeeamp to run it keeps giving me: run-time error '9':
                Subscript out of range

                  Checkout the README_NOW.txt file that's dropped in the install directory. That error means that you didn't specify the correct path to your mp3 directory in the config.ini file, which is also in the install directory.

                  Let me know if you have any more problems.

                      None needed.

                      It's designed to be controlled with a numeric keypad.

                          Luckily I have a friend that knows a lot about these things, and I've started downloading the things that I need - as VB6 is over, I'll be starting fresh in VB.net, so it's all a learning experience!

                            I've never done anything in vb.net before - is it very different from vb6?? I was sent all the visual studio.net betas to test by microsoft but never got round to it...
