    I have a very small fixed drive, so ALL of my mp3s are on CD/DVD. I would like to see better support for mp3s on discs e.g:

    - abililty to assign the DVD root dir. as the music DB dir. and have the DB rebuilt upon disc insertion
    - a "directory" mode for the CD as well as the hard drive.
    - playlist maker support for CD/DVDs.


    cheers.

    Lightbulb Mini Mini Mode

    I finally got a GPS installed (Colpilot 7) and have discovered that the mini frodo window is just too big when another application is running. I have tried to move it everywhere but without any luck. It always obscures a good portion of the screen. I have it rolled up where it is just the title bar. The only place it sort of works is at the bottom sitting on top of the windows task bar. But with this location I have to move it up eveytime I need to get to the controls. I have tried moving the task bar to the top of the screen but Copilot doesnt play nice with it in that configuration.

    Would it be possible to either do something similiar to this virtual keyboard: virtual Keyboard 1.0

    Maybe you could add a button to the mini mode that puts a frodo icon placed on the top left of the screen and hides the mini mode. MiniMini Mode . Clicking that shows the mini frodoplayer. The icon would always stay on top and its position could be controlled via an INI file.

    The other option would be to be to add a setting to the INI file that alters the direction of the rollup. Instead of the mini window being located below the titlebar it would popup above the titlebar.

    sounds like your talking about docking the skin, i think wmp supports this in the MS version with skins

    Nope. Frodplayer has its own mini display mode that I believe is not related to WMP. Correct me if I'm wrong Kevin.

    The Mini-Mode is skinable I think.
    You can change the size somehow.

    Th problem is if I give it an ultrasmall skin it becomes unusable. That is why an onscreen icon like the Virtual Keyboards would be extremely useful. There would basically be 3 Frodoplayer modes. Full Screen, Mini Mode, and Always on top ICON.

    You are right wkolodny, i was just speaking about the functionality you want being the same as docking a skin in wmp.

    Personally, (this may just be me) i would like to just have a minimize to the taskbar button on the main screen. If i want to change the song, ill just maximize frodoplayer and change it. Cant do two things at once anyway so no real point (for me that is) in using the mini mode. I know for others that use GPS and stuff they need to see its a usefull feature.

    I agree. Minimize functionality would help in many situations unless you are dealing with another full screen app like Copilot.

    I couldn't find anyone else making this suggestion... but with the new scroll bars, where you can just tap the up or down arrow and the thing will scroll... any way to make it so that you can just hold it down, and it'll scroll slowly at first. Then it'll slow get faster and faster?

    Right now it seems that you have to just keep tapping the up arrow if you want to scroll up. For a touchscreen user in the car, that can get annoying.

    Thanks
