Couldn't get it to do much of anything other then switch screens but the graphical work is incredible!! The interface reminds me of something from XBMC.
Not having winamp installed might explain why I couldn't get music to play. Its a shame you guys went that route...a built in media player would have been pretty cool.
Hmm, sounds also like the above mentioned problem.
CM tries to retrieve the installation-path of Winamp 2.9x from the registry.
If it finds it, it will launch the winamp.exe (and shuts it down after closing CM)
But if it can't find or launch Winamp, the playlist will always be empty.
Thats because CM's playlist is actually the Winamp playlist.
No winamp = No playlist data for CM.
I'll think of something to solve this... An automatic search doesn't work
for everyone, it seems.
It is planned, maybe I will go for it sooner. It depends on the requests I guess. (first one counted ;))

I think it would be about 10hrs to implement a plugin for one of each mentioned player.
Yes, I can confirm that. I don't even have Winamp installed. :)

Sorry to bother you guys with 'another' install..
Luckily it's a very known and lightweight player. But still...
I'll give developing an integrated audioplayer a higher priority,
but currently some other things and features will be implemented.
I've completed a new, and probably significant, build.
It contains optimizations and a different notification system to update the layers.
Some layers had their own update thread. I've replaced it with a different event system.
It solved winamp sound glitches, which might be encountered on slower (<1ghz) machines.
(due to excessive reading of the equalizer and volume data f.i.)
The script execution became more responsive too.
All good stuff..
It's worth it to replace the previous version with this build.
(use the link above to download,
version of the exe should be 126.96.36.1991)
i must say, this looks very promising. i went back and read most of the older posts, and i like that you've stayed commited to this for such a period of time. i'm in the proccess of pricing out a carpc for myself, so ill probably try throwing this on first to see all your hard work.
Thanks and yeah, it is a long running project meanwhile, but I promised that the project

Currently, we're very very happy with the framework, but it needed 3 rebuilds/redesigns
of CM and almost 1.5yrs practice to get to this point. (admitted, there were some periods
with less, or none, activity.. but still, much has been learned from the other implementations.. )
Go check it out when you have your CarPC, and share your experience!
I created a twitter account to keep you updated on the development.
