    Like I said in my previous post, i've had this idea in my head for a while now so I am really looking forward to what comes out of it!

    The idea I was having was that something like a front-end wouldn't need to know things like:

    - Sound card type
    - User settings on volume
    - other applications that are running (and may need to be turned down)

    but can rather just call FrodoComm and say (important message, "message") and frodocomm just does what it needs to? (say, based on the importance of message, turns everything else down (or off) and displays/reads aloud the message?)

    Man I am looking forward to what comes out of this!

    *This is the moment where the masked, black suited guy jumps on stage*

    For all of you who need a kind of vision what this could mean for developers and users likewise, just look at the picture.

    Every box you see there is a module on the FrodoComm network. They all may communicate with each other, but they don't have to.

    Advantage for the developer:
    You'll have neat, lean modules that are easy to manage and support.

    Advantage for the user:
    You can build your own system by integrating new modules.


    Before you ask, no, they are not available yet.

    zorro good explaination, so is frodocomm the frontend that calls all the modules? the thing i dont get is that frodoplayer and RR for example already have most of the "modules" correct?so you wouldnt need a mp3 player plugin,dvd player, etc.. For example some one could just make a EQ. plugin for frodoplayer and it would look like the EQ was embedded in FP

    So basiclly anyone can add[module] whatever they want to FP and it would look/work like it did if frodo did it on his own

    It's just a vision of things to come... this doesn't depict the present

    Its not a Frontend. A frontend is what you see. Its more of a backbone. If you put that CDRipper pluigin that Guino has been working on on the network, then all apps would be able to use it. But, there has to be an app to use it. Frodocomm itself won't do anything with it.
