    Running RoadRunner and Winamp

    Okay, I just download the 2-2 release and put everything under Program Files\RoadRunner\
    When launch RoadRunner, Winamp launch first on it own, then RR.
    Now I have 2 separate windows RR and Winamp.
    If I close winamp, RR is not close but music is also stop and RR audio control button don't do anything.

    Why is that?
    BTW, I am running Winamp v5.06

    RR uses Winamp to control/play music. Wianmp should run when starting RR and close when closing RR.. As long as your Winamp is not set to Always on top you won't have any issues with it in your car (it will stay behind and out of sight). If you wish to remove the winamp title from the taskbar, simply set it to be on the Systray Only (winamp preferences).

    I may add an option to hide winamp in the future, right now, this is better for development and doesn't interfere with the usage of the software. If I hide winamp and RR crashes, then you'd have to use Task Manager to close it, get it ?

    Also, I recommend Winamp 2.9x since it is faster to load... but winamp 5 should work fine..

    Guino, something maybe to mention in the Readme or the website... if you have Winamp Lite (say from the old MediaCar install) it seems that the Mixer/EQ does not function. Probably because of the "lite" functionality

    The full Winamp 2.9x fixed that in a jiffy.

    Cool, all work fine now. There maybe a little bug here and there, but at least the thing is working
    When I get some free time, I will be able to code something for the safety stuff such as DVD/Video/Vis disable when ebrake is not engage. Pause music or whatever currently play when ACC is OFF. Basically serial safety/legal stuff that also implemented in Frodoplayer.

    That is my point to get RR installed.

    I had some issues using winamp ver. 5. My winamp would start playing the song it stopped when i entered the video window, then i could stop the music by pressing "list" and when i selected the video, the music would start again. I assumed it was a problem on my end (someone WOULD have said something:P ) when it asks for the winamp path use the version of winamp that comes with mediacar
