    Maybe he's been snatched up by a company and as part of his contract not allowed to talk on the boards anymore or develop MediaCar? Sureley no-one is too busy to pop on the boards once a week and post?

    Since he's licensed it to a hardware company, I'm sure he'll be making more developments

    But he hasn't has he - or if he has he hasn't made it available to MP3car users (not that he has any obligation to do so)

    I think it's fair to say MediaCar is dead - at least for the Car PC community. Long live Frodoplayer et al...

    Well, he says he will, at least that's what the other guy who managed to get in contact with him said. Anyway, any updates will probably be a long time coming considering what all the other (very many) apps are doing....

    Thumbs up

    hey all,

    Let's find all the programmers in Mediacar forum to start writting a new program?


    I'm a bit of a programmer myself, but has never done any applications that runs in windows, skinnable, has an installer and so on. However, I'm very interested in doing something like that and believe that i have the capabilities. I've been doing web applications for almost 3 years and developping multimedia games and presentations using Lingo (shockwave) as programming language. I have good graphic design skills and I understand programming quite well and don't think it would be hard to start writting a skinable program for windows. If you have some information about writting windows apps, could you please help me get started?

    What sort of languages I should consider?
    The development environment?
    A place for Resources?

    Mike

    btw , I'm currently teaching Multimedia in a TAFE college

    Good luck Mickey. I think that there are enough active projects around here to keep us all busy.

    I have to say that it took me while to switch to frodo player and i actually loaded up mediacar the other day and it reminded me how cool it was to have a real menu driven application with real embedding. MediaCar was buggy though and it took forever to load up the mixer (at least it had a mixer though.)

    Frodoplayer is my next choice because he is the most active developer here. Although some of the stuff frodo is working on like the integrated webserver is redicoulous but hey... it is his program and he can do what he wants with it. Frodo has done a real lot for this community.

    You won't find it so ridiculous when people and developers realize what they
    can do with it.
