    How to load a new skin after "n" sec of idle?

    I want the audio_player skin to load a embbed vizualization skin after "n" sec of idel on the audio_player skin. Then once touch the visualization skin it will switch back to the normal audio_player skin. is this possible in RR?

    not possible currently, but a cool idea, kind of like a screen saver but could be used other ways, i would want to load a different screen that maybe was just a fullscreen speedo.
    Great idea !

    Thats a really good idea ... could be used for all sorts, maybe a choice of which screen to show depending on the screen you are currently in.

    It's possible to "time out" to the vis skin simply by setting a timer in flash that calls the skin using an fscommand. You could also configure the "n" sec in a txt file as I'm sure everyone will have a different preference.

    The problem, however, is going to be with the visualization itself. Currently, there is now way to put a button over a vis window so it would be impossible to have it switch back to the audio_player skin on "one-touch". Secondly, you would be limited to the AVS vis because most other visualizations such as Milkdrop require music, Thus if there is no music playing, RR will timeout to the vis skin and pop-up an error message. Sorry for the lengthy response..

    Flash is definitely an easy alternative here.. nothing to be displayed even.. but I have thought about adding a skin definition to allow a command to execute after so many seconds, with or without a "reset"... I Think Arathranar actually had done some work on that, and just didn't have time to post the changes..
