At the moment, OM will run under linux, but the media player plugin for linux is not finished, and thus the functionality is limited. The framework supports radio, so all that is needed to get HD radio working would be to write a plugin for the hardware to communicate to the framework.
The release above is for windows, and it works well.
OM looks promising. Just loaded on to my Acer Aspire One with WinXP. Graphics are a little slow. Weather works, media works. Waiting on the next version with playlist and volume control and maybe other player plugins (not so important). The Garmin plugin would also be nice.
If I was capable and had all the tools, I would try to make some plugin but my coding ability is limited to some basic PHP really.
Keep up the good work.
I loaded this up on my Win7 desktop tonight to play with it.
For some reason it started in caps lock mode where I needed to make entries in text for setting.
Google contacts will not work no matter how much I massage it.
It took me a while to figure out how to scroll the music! I don't get what the ALL in the blue circle is for.
No matter what I enter in Data Settings the weather just shows question marks and N/A
Can't play any video at all yet (I tried) You state in the documentation that it can play anything media player can play. I think the word "music" needs to be specified there or it could create frustration for some.
The default skin leaves something to be desired. All of the glow stuff every where make it look out of focus and busy.
Once I figured out how to scroll, I see the basics of flick scrolling present.
It seems snappy.. of course I am running this on an overclocked Quad core graphics machine so it should.
From what I've read, this has come far quickly.
Not that you should be honored or anything but I am looking at doing a skin for it if I can squeeze it into my life. A default skin should be clean, easy to see and consistent throughout. Remember... what people see first may drive them to either give up early or fight through.
Please... don't take all my criticisms as bashing. I couldn't code something like this if a Russian woman had my nutsack in a pair of rusty vicegrips. So I have respect for that alone.
skins...some people like some styles, some like others, eventually there will be plenty to choose from.
I did choose Google as the provider since my Droid has me all Googled out. Perhaps an uninstall/reinstall is called for to verify this.
Once I get comfy with this on my desktop, I'll try dumping it on my Samsung UMPC (mobile... uhhh mobile player) and see how that goes. I want to see if I can get iGo GPS working in it. All I really need out of my mobile system is Audio/Video/Pics/GPS and I am happy as long as it works.
Ok, just removed and reinstalled.
Once the main install is complete the little window pops up asking for plugin selection. I clicked everything with Google in it and OMDebug. It said everything successfully installed yet the window remains open and it says "Installing Package" beneath the choices. I am assuming it's actually done though. This window should either close or change the "Download and Install" button to "Close Window" or something like that.
When you enter passwords, the field will not take numerical input from the keyboard. I have to use the screen to put numbers in.
Seems OM has remember the data from my last install and still nothing for contacts nor weather as the attached shows. Unless it really is going to be "Sunny with a chance of question marks." and the "N/A" stands for "No Answer" Of course with the accuracy of your average weather man, this screen is fitting.
I've re-entered my info 4 or 5 times now to make sure it was accurate.
Were also working on having plugin browsing and installation all done from within OM so its an easy touch screen friendly process (another first ).
If the reinstall doesnt fix it, it might be the internet detection isn't detecting an internet connection. Sometimes its the windows firewall being overprotective...sometimes it may just be a higher then expected latency (something that should be fixed in the next release).
