    AFK Fest 2010 - Control Carputer Winamp with iDevice

    Embed this video



    Rob Wray, from mp3Car, looks into a solution for controlling massive amounts of music on your carputer. One great feature of using winamp for your music system is that there is an iPhone app called iAmpRemote which allows you to control winamp via an AdHoc connection. So you just need your windows computer to broadcast a signal, have your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch connected to it, and now you have a wireless remote.

    Adriel's carputer screen is installed into a custom bezel over the factory dash, running from an opus computer.

    60,000 songs is about 6 months (166 days) of continuous playback... That's 240 gigs worth of music?

    I'm surprised that none of the frontends can handle that...

    thats my car!! yayaya!

    yea its the reason i use winamp, it handles it flawlessly.

    only "issue" is it takes about 2mins to load that many songs into a playlist. but its cool.

    I also use winamp cuz i can control it via my iDevice.

    I have a collection of 113,000 songs that OM handles easily. I would imagine CF could handle 60,000 its probably more for the iDevice control. On that note, there are apps for winamp, wmp, vlc and generic windows control so you really don't have to use winamp with that size collection its just a personal preference.
