    Development update

    As I said previously, I will start working on Freeway again over Thanksgiving break. I plan on fixing a few DVD bugs and adding the ability to switch skins from within the program.

    I'm starting a new project, however. I'm taking a stab at completely recording Freeway in C# to make it even faster than it is already, codenamed CCFRU. Same functionality, skin compatibility, etc. Let me know what you guys think about that.

    You should consider mplayer for your backend if you really want speed and intergration. Currently there is no GUI for the windows version, its all command line but it should be easy to integrate. Its open source and it will play any file thrown at it. There is a fork in the roadrunner project called 'enicar' (in these forums) that is using mplayer backend and its hella fast

    Just a thought. I really like the idea of a solid C frontend. Keep up the great work oeri

    That would be great... DVD playback has been poor in my trials so far.

    You can expect mplayer utilization in the first C# build. Much faster and more reliable.

    Very glad to hear this! I've been using mplayer on linux for years and its a rock solid lightweight genuine media player. Winamp works but mplayer just rocks. Looking foward to your future development.

    Quick update -- here's a screenshot of Freeway Ultra in C# goodness -- not too much different looking, huh? I've finished the media screen so far.
