    Good job Frodo.

    But i have a question about Album Art.

    It says in your manual:

    "How to add album art or album info to Videos, etc.

    ART:

    In the same directory as the file, copy a jpg file there
    with the same name of the file plus .jpg

    Example:

    Video = D:\The Matrix.avi
    Video Art = D:\The Matrix.avi.jpg"

    So let's see if I got this straight, for every song I have to have a jpg file with the same name, or is there something obvious that I'm missing?



    You can have the art embedded into the file for mp3s.
    For any other type, and videos you can have filename + jpg
    or "album.jpg" in the folder.

    nice job!

    single press playing on list would be better for touch screen

    Not gonna happen. You can select an item and push play if you have difficulty.

    Double tap add to queue

    How about a double tap instead, and how about adding to queue rather than playing immediately? How about an Add to Queue button that you could toggle this feature on and off with. The lack of this feature in any software is the only thing that is stopping me starting my own carpc project. Let me know what you think?
    Other than that, from my point of ignorance, all the programs out there seem very impressive. Nice work frodo

    It is very annoying to have to double tap/click on the little video box to maximize to full screen every time a new video starts. Can't it just keep playing the playlist of videos without exiting fullscreen?

    Another request - for when a single tap/click is made in full screen mode (video or visulazation) a small contorl bar with back/next and volume, etc to come up, so one musn't exit full screen to change songs or volume.

    One more tiny thing - the scroll bar, th way it scrolls, annoys me like crazy - I dont' know quite why, but I want it to act like the exploer scroll bar. Plus it sorts names backwards (z on top and a on bottom) - can we have options to fix these things (or at least the names)?

    Other than those two (and tiny scroll bar annoyment ^^) - I find this app to be MUCH more stable than any other one I've tried for my car, including but not limited to Media engine, Media Car, CarBox, Mobile Media center, and G-Net Digital Dash. Definitly my favorite!! I just need to be able to play videos perfect now and I'm all set !

    Thanks Frodo! Keep up the good work and watch out for my donation (as soon as I get my paypal account working with my new bank card ><)!

    OOH! One more big thing: the browse directory thing, I use that exclusively for the music, and I jsut noticed videos don't show up in there ><! I have waay to many videos to just string them into one list like frodoplayer does. Can you have them show up in the directory browser please? (this ism ore important than the other stuff, it hinders my video playing allot cuz I have to go into settings to change folders ) thanks again

    So my request is this: I want to rip a bunch of DVDs to my hard drive. Then I want a list of the HDD-stored DVDs in FP. When I pick the movie to watch, it should launch WinDVD or whatever passing the path to the VIDEO_TS folder on the command line.

    Someone suggested this would work in WMP already, but my WMP doesn't seem to play VOBs from the hard disk. Is it just me?
    WMP 10 beta played vobs from the hard drive fine. I'm pretty sure 9 does too. (don't install WMP10 it frezzes up too much and is a pain to get rid of!) You just need to make the vobs open with WMP. Though I don't think it will play the whole movie through if oyu jsut click on one vob- oyu need to add them all to a playlist and have it play them back in order.

    Edit: Maybe it is just that you haevn;t actually ripped hte dvd's? You can't jsut copy a dvd to the hard drive, you must use a program with DeCSS or DeDRMS to rip it and get rid of the copy protection and macrovision and whatnot. Try Smartripper. If your doing this and WMP won't play em' back anyway I'm outta ideas then ^^.

    Just make use of DVDx . Though integrating it would be cool, I don't think the car would be powered up long enough for the dvd to rip, plus it's going to be pretty boring ^_^. DVDx takes ~1-2 houirs to copy a dvd to divx 5 on my 3.2ghz pc with 1gb ram. My EPIA V10000 board would take HOURS if not days .

    Agreed. Allot of my files are Japanese and it makes finding some music pretty hard . It jsut makes most of them into nonsense.

    A queue would be cool, like the playlist building on an iPod (adding to the On the go playlist). I still have my ipod in there until a good program can handle all my mp3's comes out. Add unicode and a good queue and you might see the ipod on eBay .
