    Yonu had the same problem. Which version of vlc have you installed. The plugin doesn't work with the latest version. I haven't had time to update it yet.

    The latest version that I know it works with is 0.8.6i.

    This plugin sounds like it might just be the ticket to solve my need for simultaneous playback and control of music and video on different monitors.

    And Freedom Ultimate looks like a great skin... but I can't seem to find where to download it? It's so frustrating trying to play catchup on all these skin and app developments months after that fact...

    Can anyone hook me up with the FU skin? Thanks kindly in advance.

    try post 35 of this thread if you want the vlc skin. If you mean to find all of FU then I'm not sure

    OK, I managed to find a copy of FU, and tried to follow everything in post 35, but I'm not getting much joy here. Coupla quick questions, if you don't mind, as I review all the steps again.

    1. In your setup, in which you were using VLC on a second monitor, you used the standalone, not the embedded options, right?
    2. At what point should VLC.exe be invoked? I've installed the right version, and followed the directions, but I'm not seeing VLC load at all.
    3. How do I get to the videobrowserArt screen?
    4. Theoretically, when all is said and done, I should (might?) be able to output video (plus sound) to a second monitor and still output music and control navigation on a second sound card, right?

    Thanks much.

    [EDIT: OK, please forgive the newbishness of these questions, I've only been playing with RR for a week.

    I take it menu.txt is supposed to outline all the different options I can scroll through from the menu with the up/down arrows. I also take it that an option called DVDPlaylist is supposed to show up and take me to the videobrowserArt screen. Well, for some reason, nothing after &mainbut15=Files is showing up, it just goes back to Audio again. Is there some trick to accessing a fourth menu page?]

    Yes it was standalone.
    I have a button that starts vlc from rr but it runs standalone. Use this &mainbut15=VlcDVD@icons\dvd.png@RUN;C:\program files\carputer\road runner\rrvlc.exe;",""&
    In theory you could just add rrvlc to the startup folder. If rr isn't started rrvlc will automatically start it.
    The dvdplaylist button should show you video art. What do you see? post screenshot.
    Yes. I run two screens in the back of my car with video for the kids and have a touchscreen in the front running GPS and music. You have to set winamp to a different sound card or use the sound card settings in rrvlc but never tested that properly.

    Thanks for the input, lambosprit. Looks like I have a larger problem -- see my edit above. I can't seem to get any additions to my menu.txt to show up. I guess I need to bone up on a lot of RR fundamentals...

    Just so you know menu.txt is only for FU. Its not a RR skin thing.

    Probably you haven't set the number of menuscreens correctly. Look at the top of the file and you'll see &numberofmenus=x& where x is the number of screens.

    this tells you how many screens of 5 buttons you can see so I suspect yours is set to three. Mine is set to 5

    Thanks. Actually there wasn't any &numberofmenus=x& in there at all. I added &numberofmenus=4&, but it's still not taking effect (still can't see anything after 15). Here's what my menu.txt looks like:

    &mixerlines=1@5@6@7@8&
    &numberofmenus=4&
    &mainbut1=Audio@icons\audio.png@AUDIO&
    &mainbut2=Video@icons\video.png@VIDEO&
    &mainbut3=Radio@icons\radio.png@RADIO&
    &mainbut4=DVD@icons\dvd.png@Dvd&
    &mainbut5=Gps@icons\gps.png@GPS&
    &mainbut6=Web@icons\web.png@LOAD;webrowser.skin;Fr eeWeb;$skinpath$\FreeWeb.exe;FreeWeb&
    &mainbut7=Games@icons\games.png@LOAD;game.skin;gam es;$skinpath$\games.EXE;Gameloader&
    &mainbut8=Pictures@icons\pictures.png@pics&
    &mainbut9=Notes@icons\notes.png@LOAD;notes.skin &
    &mainbut10=Weather@icons\weather.png@weather&
    &mainbut11=Calc@icons\calc.png@Load;calc.skin&
    &mainbut12=Apps@icons\apps.png@launch&
    &mainbut13=Status@icons\settings.png@LOAD;status.s kin&
    &mainbut14=Phone@icons\phone.png@LOAD;freefone.ski n;FreeFone;$skinpath$\FreeFone.EXE;FreeFone&
    &mainbut15=Files@icons\files.png@LOAD;filemanager. skin;filemanager;$skinpath$\filemanager.EXE;FileMa nager&
    &mainbut16=DVDPlaylist@icons\files.png@LOAD;video_ browser1.skin&
    &mainbut17=VlcDVD@icons\dvd.png@RUN;C:\Program Files\RideRunner\rrvlc.exe;",""&

    [Edit: After perusing through the Freedom worklog, I found some mention of this "numberofmenus" thing being related to a later release of Freedom. I probably have an older version, and unfortunately what I have is the only one I could find. If anybody out there is willing to email me a newer version, it would make my day

    OK, so I am making some progress Still not quite there yet though

    Running rrvlc.exe directly loads vlc and starts the file hardcoded in RRvlc.m3u.

    And my menu is displaying properly now. Video_browser1 shows up nicely, with video cover art and everything. Choosing a file, however, loads the winamp video player, despite the fact that I have added

    &DVDplayer=VLC&
    &DVDPATH=C:\Video\&

    to my skin.ini file.

    Obviously, I am overlooking something simple.

    Also, what settings/changes are supposed to send vlc to the second monitor?
