J.River Media Center
Anyone here use this. Man its IMO the best damn player there is. Im in the process now of uninstalling all my players, mmjb,winamp,etc. This thing does everything. And looks like would be a great foundation to build a frontend for (M.E) hint, hint
Looks pretty cool. DLing now to check it out.

I finally sat down and started messing with this app...
THIS THING ROCKS!!! You can customize an entire full screen Visualization. Including album cover art, EQ bars, spectrum anilizers, Text from ID tags, track times, etc.
I havn't gone thru all the options but I am very impressed from what I have seen so far.
Also, you can browse mp3s by album cover art by DIR., genre, year, albums. It plays movies. All the popular formats including .mov, divx, all the MS formats, and DVDs. I am still looking into it more but for $40 this doesn't seem that bad. It does slide shows with pics., with a TV tuner card you can watch and record TV, and it syncs with media devices.The only things it needs are GPS and radio. but I don't see the GPS thing happening.
I think it could be setup for Girder pretty easy. I need to look into this a little more...
Yes it does rock!
I have yet to find anything about it i dont like or any kind of deal breaker that would make me say damn, if it only did this or didnt do that.
I does work with girder too, go to the link in my second post on in this thread, the netremote app, it controls media center from any pc or pda and also works with girder to control it, so you can have a remote control that sends IR or RF to girder and girder controls netremote which controls media center. The way media center is setup, if you look in the settings it has an area just for remote control of the app etc. It was totaly made with this in mind which is good, makes it easier to do what you want. GPS and FM tuner is all that is missing , and your right i dont see GPS comeing, but this app would be great to build a front end for. After further looking into netremote, i think it may not even need a front end. Netremotes PC version is skinable so basicly you may be able to just skin netremote which is made to control mediacenter, and netremote will still work on a the same pc that has mediacenter installed. Need to look into it more.
Just stumbled onto this thread and forum while researching touch screens for automobiles. Great resource.
I wrote an application that uses J River's software in the back end. The software was designed with touch screens in mind. I'm wondering though if the buttons need to be even larger for car applications and/or a customized version suitable for 7" screens.
J River's software is very powerful and has a lot of punch to it.
