Feature Request: DVD/Movie playing while in GPS mode
I would love to have this feature enable. The movie/dvd is playing in the background while GPS is showing (like you are currently in video browser mode).
Basically what I want is if I am in video/dvd mode, and if I click on any other option (menu/gps/apps/mixer .... you name it), don't auto switch to audio mode. Just treat it as I am currently in video_browser.skin.
Also this feature can be turn on/off. If on it works like my request. If off, it works as it is now.
I have 2nd monitor setup for back seat. I was able to use video overlay/full screen feature in nVidia/nView (dual mode). By using this feature, I was able to play movie/dvd in RR and full screen on the 2nd monitor. Now instead of showing movie in the front(VGA) monitor, I want GPS instead. In the mean time, I just have to run iG stand alone and maximize instead of embeded.
I make a quick scan thru the code trying to modify, but I can't make an EXE to test cuz I don't have mappoint installed. Comment mappoint out is a nightmare. Do the audio/video feature control by these variables (AudioOn, VideoOn, XMOn, SirusOn ... ?)
I hope that this feature is also usable to others who request dual screen support.
Yes, RoadRunner has dual monitor support
Let see my rusty VB skill is still usable ;)
Base on 03-06-06 code. I was able to keep video playing while navigating around roadrunner, Including GPS (except any audio player radio, xm, sirus, audio)
Know problem: Embeded apps and switch skin.
- Embeded app: Video seem to stay on top, you have to select RR from task bar again to avoid "black frame" around embeded app.
- switch skin: While video playing, switch skin cause it to stop
Hopefully I will iron out those bug over the weekend.
BTW, I need someone to host the file (514K).
