i know this player has been posted here before, but this new version allows you to create resized skins, so it could (theoretically) be used as a front-end/full screen media player. the skinning is done with a color-coded "map" that is incredibly easy to work with. you could easily make a map for existing carputer front-end skins.

skinners, please check the skin development info here. i played with it briefly, doubling the size of the original skin and map, and it worked. the buttons came out a bit flaky, but i probably missed something in my rushed effort. here are the base skin files

it seems to be a good solid player, with support for popular audio/video formats. on my pc, it uses very little resources.. comparable with winamp 2.x.
