    Since it's still in the Alpha stages there is a lot more in the works. Will call for more screenshots as more features come into play.

    ok here it goes:

    Player
    OGG, Monkey's audio, & Flak support
    --Alpha 5 Release
    Play lists
    --for Beta Release
    "Grab-able" scroll bar
    --for Beta Release
    "Grab-able" progress bar
    --Alpha 5 Release
    "Grab-able" volume bar This may assist is the Mute/ATT request somewhere in here.
    --We will add this to the skin builder and users can make diff types of volume control
    Songs --> All, A, B, C..., then the songs under there. This will make for less scrolling... Or at least make them appear in alphabetical order.
    --Right now the song list is in Alphabetical order by filename, do you mean by song?
    Can the filenames when browsing scroll? Maybe all of them scroll together left to right to compensate for long filenames (Artist - Album - Track# - Title can make for some long filenames).
    --Not Decided
    Use of the Volume Normalization tag. The only player that I know that uses it is Media Monkey. This will prevent volume jumps between different songs/albums.
    --Researching implementation
    Browse Genre --> Artist, Album, and/or Title (for organization)
    --not sure what is being asked for… we have browse by artist album genre and song now
    Queuing of some sort , I like to find songs while one is playing and it would be cool to queue it for when the current song ends
    --same as play list
    Keep track of song playing and what time in the song even if MMC isn't closed properly (Example I pull the plug on the comp so it auto boots when power is restored)
    --Feature has been complete, just turned off at the moment
    Mouse scroll wheel support for track list scrolling
    --Beta Release
    Smart-browsing a la Windows XP. Puts number folders in the correct order.
    Now 7, Now 8, Now 9, Now 10, Now 11, Now 12 instead of Now 10, Now 11, Now 12, Now 7, Now 8, Now 9
    --Not sure yet
    Scroll more information at the top (selectable). Instead of just Song Title and Time, allow me to choose what I want it to show such as Artist, Album, Track #, Title, Year, Bit rate, Size (basically allow me to choose from any ID3v2 tags). And allow us to set the separator (, - <space> : ,etc). So if I really want it to scroll the following I can: Artist - Album - Track # - Title - Year - Bit rate - Size, blah blah blah.
    --Final Release
    Have the list box of songs not select the next song when you have scrolled off somewhere else
    --Alpha 5 Release
    dynamic media DB updates
    --Beta Release
    Mute or attenuator This would be better than holding the volume button to lower it. Mute/ATT is very useful when you see a cop coming down the road (I speak from experience). (Allow us to set the ATT percentage. 10% may not be enough for one person but too much for another.)
    --See, I’m not the only one Ben!!—Beta Release
    Ensure albums are shown in track order. Espically when browsing folders.
    ?? Elaborate


    Visualizations
    Take the Spectrum Analyzer off the Vis.[ There’s one or two vis that don't work properly. I think they are part of the Spec Anny in the top right corner. If it would go full screen like in the right hand corner than that would kick ***.
    --Beta Release
    Automatically go to Full screen Vis after X-minutes of not doing anything. (ie. playing an album or play list). Say after 5 minutes unless the user 'clicks' something but only while they are in the Music area. This way GPS or other tool won't be affected.
    --Not sure yet
    Allow the vis to change themselves but allow us to set the timeout between.
    --Not sure yet
    Vis selector doesn't need the arrows. Doesn't choose forward and backward of the vis available. Acts more like three randomize buttons. Or make it so it does select forward and backward in order.
    --Alpha Release 5—selector button has been omitted, now have one visual button and if you hold down on the visual itself it will change
    WinAmp Vis capability
    --Alpha Release 5


    General requests
    Video playback fix
    ?? Elaborate, Video plays fine
    Video: Give it its own button on the HOME screen. Perhaps allow us to organize your movies into appropriate folders for Music Videos, DVD Rips, PORN (<- saw someone mention that earlier). Almost like a Genre’s tab but this will be for videos. The only way that I think it can be done easily is to have the separated into appropriate folders.
    --Alpha Release 5 (Browse for video)
    Mini-Mode
    --Beta Release
    An animated icon when building media database. This way we know that MMC is in fact cataloging files and has not locked up. (Kind of like the Windows Copy/Move dialogs.)
    --Alpha Release 5
    Built in CD ripping to MP3
    --Final Release
    Built in DVD ripping to Divx
    --Final Release
    GPS, TV, XM, and DAB support[u] (for those in Europe)
    --Beta Release
    Remote control usage. Plugin based would be useful so people can make plugins for various remotes.
    --Beta Release
    ODB-II capability So we can show what our real car's computer is talking about. (Engine temp, RPMs, etc.
    --Final Release
    PC Diagnostics Support for motherboard sensors. If integrated with ODB-II I can monitor my car and carputer while the mp3 tag scrolls atop.
    --Not sure yet
    How about a password prompt to close MMC , this would limit access to a system. I have buddies that would fool around with Windows while I run in the quick-e-mart
    --Not sure yet
    The ability to embed apps and easily switch between them with the ability to overlay a customizable OSK to access the most common buttons in the external embedded app.
    --Beta Release


    Configuration
    Multiple media folders. This way MP3s are separated from videos.

    Built in configuration screens (settings)
    --Beta Release
    Ability to change the text size. Useful for people with larger screens so they can fit more information on the screen.
    --Beta Release
    Configurable resolution support for more screen resolutions , even if it just fills the screen with black. MMC could be used on a desktop for a jukebox. Password-protectable.
    --Beta Release

    How about localization? We'll be able to change the language in the menus by editing an .INI file?
    --Final Release (support for multiple languages)



    PIM
    Calendar, Planner, Organizer, phone/address book, to-do lists, tasks, alarms, stuff like that. Linking the address book and the GPS with a "Take Me There" function.
    --Final Release
    Voice-recorded memos
    --Final Release
    PDA-syncing
    --Final Release
    Internal phone support or connect with Phonecontrol
    --Beta Release??

    Status Update

    Just a quick status update for all of you waiting for the last alpha release. I have been working very hard on this release. I want it to be a huge leap forward. It will have XM support. A nice new screen layout for the Radio screen has been completed and we will need feedback on it.

    If you look under the Plug-in/Requests thread, Mike posted a relpy showing what features will make what release. Alph Release 5 will have a lot of things you all have been requesting for awhile. There are now two media folders. One for audio and one for video. Ogg is fixed and working very well now. Monkey Audio and Flac is being tested a lot and is going to be included.

    A lot more...

    Will keep you posted. The release was originally scheduled for tonight. Sadly it will not make tonights release. I will be trying for a Tues-Wed release.

    Thanks everyone.

    Most of the request that need more information are all from me:

    --Right now the song list is in Alphabetical order by filename, do you mean by song?
    Pretty much they way I would like to see it, when I hit Songs I see all my songs (which is cool). But if I'm looking for a song that begins with the letter 'R' then it's going to take a while to get to it. A grabbale scroll bar would help but what I'm thinking is this:

    When you first hit Songs you will see All, A, B, C... Hit All and it shows everything. Hit A and it shows just songs beginning with the letter A, and so on and so forth.

    ?? Elaborate
    Right now when you go into browse folders, the files in the folder are shown alphabetically. That means that they will not play in track order but instead alphabetical order. So I think MMC should read that track tags and show the files in that order.


    Quote Originally Posted by HybridMike

    --not sure what is being asked for… we have browse by artist album genre and song now
    When you Genre you see the Genres. Next you see all the songs in that Genre. I say that we should be able to browse under that Genre but Artist, Album, and/or Title. For example, I hit Genre > Rock > Artist (it shows me all the Rock Artists) > Album (shows me the Rock Albums for that Artist) > and then the songs in that album. Or I could hit Genre > Rock > Albums > and see all the Rock Albums.

    Now the reason that I ask for this feature is becuase when you have albums with various artists, these files are going to be sorted in the Genre alphabetically and there is no real organization to keep the songs with the album to play properly.


    Quote Originally Posted by HybridMike

    --same as play list
    Does this mean that playlists will be able to be made 'on the fly'. These are really two different things but accomplish the same effect. Playlists allow us to have a file that says what will be played. Queued allows me to pick the next songs (and videos) without having to create a specific playlist. Perhaps single click will add to the queue and double click will force playing now. And the ability to save the current mix to a file for later playing would be nice. Yeah, that would all work.

    Do you guys know the word 'no' or do you just choose not to use it? I drool at the list. You're alpha 5 could be better and most final releases.

    I think you should give up on a MMC and just build your own OS. It'd be easier to intigrate stuff
