    FreeICE v1 Frontend New Version out..

    [UPDATED]

    Current version 1.5
    GRAB HERE


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Well since the forums decided to date my last post as 2001 and mess the order of them up I have now reposted the thread and want to inform you of a new release :-)

    Well I have taken the plunge and started coding my own frontend.. It so far does music / video / gps / silabs radio / calc ... its coming along quite fast.

    All the development work is being done over on www.digital-car.co.uk which are UK carpc forums... I will however switch it to my FreeDrive forums once its into beta stages.

    It is a windows media player based frontend written in VB6 with a flash front.

    I am trying to make it out of the box as much as possible.

    Here are a couple of screenshots













    grab it from... 0.8 Version (10th Jan 08)
    HERE

    HOW TO INSTALL

    READ THE MANUAL

    I have been doing daily updates over on digitalcar..

    hope you like it so far..

    Skully :-)

    Mate, its coming along great. I am using it every day and loving it. Just a thought which may be biast... are you going to add a small button that hides the vis and cd cover on the playlist page (only for music, not video). This will allow for bigger fonts...no? Just thinking of those with smaller screens running 640x480.

    if not i really dont care, just a thought.

    I've finally decided on my FE - FreeICE! woohoo

    Another thought "always on top' feature. So if other things open they don't open on top of freeice...possible?

    Not sure if you'll be interested, but I've been working for the last 9 months on an audio management application with built in media player - made up of separate components.

    The GUI (static), Media Player base (non-GUI) and Media Library (non-GUI) based on my two years worth of experience of the PhatBox (dedicated in-car audio hardware).

    Of particular interest may be the audio player which allows you to send an enitre library of playlists to it and the media player will play back through ALL the playlists one after the other. It uses a native library and therefore NOT dependent on WinAMP / Media Player and supports CDA, WMA, MP3, WAV, MP4, AAC, M4A, FLAC, OGG and AAC.

    Also available is a native Visualization library with WinAMP and Sonique visualization support. I need to update it for WMP Vizualization support which I think is now possible.

    Head over to www.phathackmm.com to see how I've used these libraries together for my application PhatHack Media Manager (a WIP)

    I figured I'd get in touch, as I'm looking for a FE that has truly integrated solutions and this looks like the start of something I'd like to be a part of!

    FYI:

    The components are written in VB.NET 2005, can't remember if I added COM extensibility but obviously this is easy to do. I also have 11 years commercial VB6 experience. So anything I can help with, let me know!

    I tried various updates on flash but no good result. I also have the same problem with FU that I really like a lot on my desktop but is unusable on carpc! Do you have some suggestion/link to try to solve this issue?

    Get a decent board is really the only answer.. stay away from the unichrome graphics chip as there crap at 2d.(jetway boards etc). you could also try reducing your hardware acceleration by one block (in your screen / settings bit) might help, has done in a few cases.
