    The skin will work for anything at that aspect ratio.
    The only thing you will have to adjust is font sizes.
    I could have made them scale as well, but an
    over-whelming majority said they wanted literal font
    sizes. And it's way too much code to change now


    (and SOMETIMES a list or label may need a "nudge"
    but it does scale, just part of the list is dependent
    on font size, it's hard to explain, but you'll only have
    to do it once, and if your lucky, someone will have
    already scaled the skin for you )

If you want to go this way and require info, the guy who made it is surely interested into helping out...
    I will look into this, but it might have to wait for a service release as to
    not delay this thing any longer.

    I fully agree - this is really an addon, the main use of the software is within the touchscreen. I would like this feature only for when using another program on top of the player: GPS or something.

    Can't wait to use the application as fullscreen touchscreen player - keep us updated.

    Frodo I have been thinking... instead of sending info for girder to use it, you could simply have an option or plugin to send the title and other info to a HD44780 standard LCD...

    The HD44780 codes are open, its passing to the parallel port.


    just a suggestion of an addon after release.

    Also, will the player able to pass to a minimized mode for when using the navigational system? Some minimalistic "stay on top" skin, or something.

    frodo,
    I've been thinking about writing my own software, but I really don't have THAT much time to put into it. So my second option (for software that caters to my needs) is to help out with another project.

    I have extensive experience with vb6 and a ridiculous amount of pre-written code from stuff I've made for my htpc.

    Please email or IM me if you're interested.

    Yes it has that option, and the mini is skinnable.
