    Sure, it uses the plugin (and is based on his carwings skin sample) from this thread. Just unrar the skin files into the dfx4 folder. The zip file has the obd-ii skin and the rest of the dfx4 skin files that needed updating like the video player fix and the skins that used the i-list that were broken. I didn't bother skinning the on screen keyboard part of the odb skin as I never use it .. so its still carwings style. One of these days maybe.

    It would be nice to see something like this built into DFX 5.

    Haha it almost feels like one of those cheesy 1950's segments where the dad leans over to little timmy and says one day men will fly to the moon. Except insert will have DFX5.

    Ha. I am convinced it's a marketing ploy wrapped up in an international conspiracy. Nasa wants DFX 5 to pimp out the space shuttle.

    Hmm, I'm horrible at painting, that plan might backfire a bit.

    Try to select a music folder instead a music file and then hit the "play selected"

I know this has been a mis-conception for some users, so I might look into user option(s) as to how the cmd is processed.
    Awesome! Thanks guys!

    Embedding streaming video

    Slightly off-topic but it does apply to use in this skin.

    I stream video from my house using Windows Media Encoder using a simple web interface to kick off encoding from a channel using predefined settings with various bitrates. I can then watch the video using Winamp, WMP, or Media Player Classic, and probably others.

    I want to easily start up the player from within DFX4.0. Winamp doesn't always show the video, so using it I'd have to send a key sequence to start the video window and then embed it. Could use WMP by starting and embedding it, but it's not the best choice due to size of the window. Using Media Player classic, I can start and embed it and then pass keys to it, and it should work okay. I was thinking I'd use the TV skin and reprogram the buttons to control the player.

    But since the video browser/player skin also uses Media Player Classic, I was wondering if it would be possible to pass a command to it to open a URL instead of a file and just use the video player skin to do this? The URL will always be the same. But since the bitrate will be lower I'm not sure I want it full screen.

    Any other ideas or suggestions welcome. Thanks!

    So this might interest this crowd. I've been trying to make a better weather interface. I think i finally succeeded.

    Lots to do, I have to add the gmap controls back, and i have a version that can take the xml lat and long from a file. So say you're driving have it point and center the map on you, with weather and traffic.
