    Features for the best front end

    Hey, guys, before Ultra gets into a beta stage, I want to take any and all suggestions from anyone on how to make Freeway best fit your needs. Let me know, and I'll consider every one of them.

    I don't use Freeway, and I don't know what is already supported, but if these do become or already are available, I might switch!

    Graphical WiFi Hotspot finder. Like the Toshiba's have (ConfigFree - http://www.hanselman.com/blog/conten...configfree.jpg)

    Dual Monitor support. Most importantly, gps on 1 screen, and the rest on another.

    CD Ripping Function and CD Audio playback.

    Random playback feature for videos and music. And truly random with a seed and everything. Not like RR where you can predict the next song because it is always the same. Defeats the purpose of random.

    And I am sure I'll think of more later!

    Hey what about HORM support (or EWF)? So you don't do any writings to HDD, I know some files need to be written anyway, and for those you provide user-selectable location...
    And keep it fast

    Feature:
    Be able to toggle between 2 different winamp output plugins on the fly - by pressing a button onscreen.

    That would allow users to setup 1 plugin for normal audio playback, and another for gapless playback.
    When they listen to a mixtape/cd they turn on the Gapless playback button.

    The FreewayUltra runs the mPlayer. So there is no winamp...

    I'd like the audio and video screens to make accessing files through different routes really simple. The current freeway library and playlist setup is great but usb sticks and cds would make it better

    ie, buttons to take you to Playlists, Library, CD/DVD Player, USB Stick etc

    You can already access files off of a USB stick, etc., from the file browser. I was also thinking of adding an "import media" feature that would copy files from the USB stick to the hard drive. What do you think?

    If it could be told to just look in certain folders on the USB stick / HDD that would be a nice feature!
