Opinions on my music player
Anyway, sick of getting nowhere, instead of making the time to make it perfect and integrated, (which depends on at least 4 other modules and the whole architecture being done and redone), I decided to whip out a rudimentary version for playing music. There's a reason for so much blank space up top BTW
A good six or seven hours and I've got a working version. It's Perl using SDL bindings. XMMS is being controlled remotely by the app.
Some things as you will note are missing (time remaining, EQ,etc), they're coming just not yet. I've also got to clean up the animation manager to speed it up, add some bells and whistles, pretty up the volume controls. Like I said, I punted this one out the door.
Also need better support for gesturing, but for the most part after playing with it, I'm pretty happy with how it works. I love the duality of all the buttons. (Fwd = FWD & Next, etc), seems like the right size for touching.
Now I just have to throw it on the carpc.
The title is a tentative one, BTW :)
Here's a pic and a video.
