Newbie software help
Hey people just need your opinion on what software i should use on my mp3 car player. I have fully setup windows and its all running sweet with winamp the only problem is that my lcd is only 5 inches and it is hard as too see what is going on in windows and winamp etc. Should i keep using windows and winamp or should i use something like cobra.
Re: Newbie software help
try change the res as low as you can, and run winamp in double-size mode, ctrl + d
you can also change the size of the text in the playlist
Do you know VB? If so, then write it! Not too difficult to control Media Player and use Winamp playlists, with any interface or feature set you want.
Player: Pentium 166MMX, Amptron 598LMR MB w/onboard Sound, Video, LAN, 10.2 Gig Fujitsu Laptop HD, Arise 865 DC-DC Converter, Lexan Case, Custom Software w/Voice Interface, MS Access Based Playlists
Car: 1986 Mazda RX-7 Turbo (highly modded), 1978 RX-7 Beater (Dead, parting out), 2001 Honda Insight
"If one more body-kitted, cut-spring-lowered, farty-exhausted Civic revs on me at an intersection, I swear I'm going to get out of my car and cram their ridiculous double-decker aluminium wing firmly up their rump."
I have used vb before but i cant write my own programs with it cause i am **** lol. Do you think i should just use winamp or cobra.
Why dont you just increase the font size in Winamp?????
Its in the options menu.
Yeah good idea but how can i also make the whole of windows font bigger do i have to do it like 1 by 1 in the aperance tab under the display properties in win 98.
Its ok i fixed it all up last night. Windows and winamp are running sweet on my lcd.
Have you tried playing with winamp 3? The skins are a lot more customisable (if that's a word) & I'm 95% sure someone here is making a 640X480 skin for it. Might be what your after.
And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?

Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)
Thanks a lot man i may have a bit of a fiddle around with it
Im currently coding my own MP3 Player for my soon-to-be-setup and at the present time Im looking at the 5" NESA TFT LCD screen too, for which Im making the player for.
So when I finish coding it.. You could grab a copy and see how it looks on the TFT screen.. I would be interested to see whether it may appear too small on the screen or not..
At the moment.. Im just fixing up coding and improving it.. but its near the testing on a TFT stage.. except I havent done any graphics for it as its still in the coding/layout/planning stages. :P
