    Uh, RR is based on Winamp, its not just something you can set in
    a config file.

    well put... WMP is not currently an option in RR.. it is something that we may add in the future (but not anytime soon). Right now winamp MUST be used for audio... Videos/DVD can be selected between a few options but WMP is not one of them.

    Winamp is good enough for audio. What I really miss is an embedded video screen. I don't want to watch video on full screen all the time. Is that possible? Mayby also the feature of playing audio/video in the same screen. (like Frodo) vis while playing audio, video while playing (music) videos.

    TheKingPlaza, you can use a skin that has Video embedded in an area. The iRunner skin does this. I'm actually doing this as well. I modded Zot's audio player skin and use the playlist area for video.

    Almost.. it still wants to break out to full screen. I want to push a button to see video full screen. Also can't figure out to get sound from all the speaker with this (video) player. Can I configure that?

    You have to set Auto Hide to false in RR.ini.

    However, I'm having problem with this, too. If I set it to false, there's no way to zoom to fullscreen right now. The latest version of RR supports the new command "HIDECONTROLS" which will hide the skin. However, the Video area still stays small. I can't send a key shortcut to mplayerc.exe either. I guess you or I could ask guino.

    greatest problem I expierence is the fact I can't get sound over all my speakers. Only the front jack gives me audio. On the other one is my rear/sub. (4:1)
