    The other question i have is playlists. I have added my music directory and am able to browse my music and play songs on an individual basis, but haven't been able to add music to a playlist. For example, i click a song and it plays, if i click the 'next' icon on the music bar doesn't go to the next song, i guess it thinks there's only that one song in the playlist. I'm sure i'm just missing something.
    I think I can answer these:
    Volume control is waiting on the graphics. At the moment, there is no real playlist support, but is on the list for 0.7. If you want to add more than one song to play, just click and hold on a Album or Artist, and they will all play.

    ws6vert answered this one for me. The features are all implemented in the framework but the graphics for the skin haven't quite caught up.

    I don't have access to any radio hardware at the moment so that's been put on hold. Radio support is done if someone wants to create a plugin for it though. When I get the time i'll probably add an HD Radio plugin based on malcom2073's work and a HQCT plugin based on the public driver.

    Oh yes, one more question. When i import my music into openmobile, does the built in music database organize the music into albums for you? The reason i ask is currently i don't have by music organized my albums. I have my music organized first by Genre, Artist. Under the artist i have all songs for that artist, so i don't have any of my music sorted by albums, but when i import my music in i can see they get organized by all artists,albums. Make sense?
    I'm not sure I understand what you meant here but i'll give it a shot. If your talking about openMobile actually re-arranging your files then no we don't do that. If your talking about how the data is organized in the internal database, its really any way you want. It stores it in a high speed format but it can be displayed by album, artist, genre, etc. It reads the data straight out of the ID3 tags and falls back to reading file names only if the tags don't exist. If you meant that you wanted to see it displayed sorted by genre, well yea thats something the current media skin doesn't do but its entirely possible and should be included in the new skin if someone doesn't beat me to it.

    So does everything work under linux? Also, are there any radio plugins available for HD radio modules or does someone need to write a plugin?

    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.

    Promising

    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.

    The bad:

    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.

    Positive:
    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.

    It should easily toggle between caps and lower case...but good call well fix that so that it starts up in lower case.

    When you installed OM theres a configuration dialog that pops up letting you select which plugins to install. Did you install a weather data provider? (either yahoo or google at the moment) Without that, theres nothing grabbing the weather for the framework.

    Neither do I to be honest Its just part of the skin design, but ill have to look back and see why it was drawn that way.

    See above comments about the weather data provider. You again need one for google contacts.

    We do play video and music.....video just wasn't implement in the default skin before 0.6 was released. You'll see both video and dvd support in 0.7.

    Well thats the good thing about skins...some people like some styles, some like others, eventually there will be plenty to choose from.

    Hey we love criticisms...the only way this front end gets better is by feedback from out users.

    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.

    It was actually just completed the day before release (we wanted to be the first front end with a full app store). Theres a few things well be changing in the next release to make it more user friendly (including the automatic closing when done).

    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).
