    that would make sense, instead of always displaying the same image...

    I'll look into it.

    Minimize button and temperature monitor

    First one is probably easy. It would be nice to have an easy way to minimize frodoplayer. The other one may be more difficult but it seems that a lot of people would probably like to be able to see real time displays of PC temperatures. It can get pretty hot in a car glove compartment and trunk.
    This little utility is great: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
    Maybe there would be some way to integrate it in.

    Thanks for creating such a great program.

    I second that. I am planning to connect temperature sensor, used to measure outside temp, onto I2C bus connector on my Epia-M and if there is chance to have this information (or any I2C/SMB info selected) shown on display just like date/time... I can even imagine situation to connect door sensors onto I2C conversion IO and have popup window when doors are open. These voice alerts are annoying as hell.

    Frodo did Mini-Mode get larger with 1.03?
    Cool, v1.0.4 now remembers which way the text was scrolling in Mini-Mode.

    I noticed one thing with the safe-volume resume:

    If you were playing the music loud, say at 75% and you exit the app and then re-launch it, it will use safe-volume resume where it slowly goes back to 75%.
    Can you add some code to make it sense If the main volume is changed during the safe-volume resume time, then disable safe-volume.

    Cause it will keep going up to 75% and you will have to keeping fighting it to bring the volume down. Right now, the easy manual fix is to mute the player and wait, or bring the volume past the last remembered spot and then back low again then un-mute. - But that defeats the purpose of safe-volume resume.

    all you have to do to stop it is press volume up or down.

    It works with the mouse/touchscreen button, but I use a Griffin Powermate and it changes the volume and the % reads and it keeps fighting it. I guess a IR remote would do the same thing?

    I guess it stops on the button action, but not by reading the volume change.

    Virtual keyboard controls

    Hey

    It would be nice if you add a control to the virtual keyboard (in search function) with the directional keys (up, down, left right) and then a push button i.e Enter.
    That way you could use a remote control to control it all.
    Just like in media engine.
    Sorry for my bad english.

    Jesper

    First let me say thanks for adding all my requested features in 1.0.4
    I just noticed that FrodoPlayer will not include *.m4a media when updating the database. These files are easily supported by windows mediaplayer after installing 3vix. Can you add support for it? Better yet, can you add an editable extension list?
