    Added support of animated gif today. Now i have to find a cool logo that spin for my car.

    Thinking about extending that for button/indicator with an optional external gif.

    Skinner post your request/idea on that.

    That's true. But i want to have artists dream about it so i could see how they want to implement it, so i could make it works the way they want.

    I'm not a fan of that. Peharps because on a touch screen we don't often use mouse over. Just clic on a button, but why not.

    I did my homework :
    Button now support optional multiple animated gif.

    B,292,533,98,69,"PLAY",
    X,POWER,"Play_Start.gif"
    X,NORMAL,"Play_Idle.gif"
    X,SELECT,"Play_Down.gif"
    X,OVER,"Play_MouseOver.gif"
    X,IN,"Play_GoIn.gif"
    X,OUT,"Play_GoOut.gif"

    As i'm not a graphist i don't have any demo of this, i just use some random gif to do my test. (all graphist are welcome).
    For more information on this new feature check the skin page on my website.

    Combine Audio & Video...

    Hi enitalp,

    Awesome work here! I have been using RR for a bit over a year now and while I love it and the impact it has had on the FrontEnd scene, I have to agree that a full re-write was probably in order. I had always thought using MPlayer rather than Winamp/MPC would be a good way to go, but don't have the time to re-develop my own FE (I'm a VB6/VB.NET developer).

    One request... with the same engine (MPlayer) being used for both audio and video.. could they be combined? So I would envision it working like this: you have a single playlist... if the file is an MP3, it plays like usual, with a [VIS] button to show/hide the visualizations (which themselves would work like the current video does... plays where the playlist would be initally, then after X seconds goes full screen... I love this!). If it were a video file, it would autmatically switch to the "VIS" mode, but of course playing the video rather than visualisations.

    I ask this because I would love to be able to have a mixture of MP3's and AVI/MPEG/Whatever music video clips (I have quite a lot)... the 'wow' factor when you can have music playing with cool visualizations switch over to a the video clip of the next song and then back to visualizations for the next song is pretty high!

    With RR this was not really possible because the playlist was being handled by Winamp, not actually by RR, and they use two different engines for music/video playback, but with EniCar using MPlayer for both, this should not be too hard...

    Just a pipe-line suggestion!

    You mention that source code is available to those that ask for it. I would like to have a copy of the source. I am a C++, C# programmer and would love to tinker. I have already started developing a C# version of a front end that will load RR skins, activate the buttons, play media and a few other features. There are some things being done such as plug-ins that I have never had experience with. Would be great to learn and maybe contribute as time and experience permits.

    Eni,

    I like this FE very much because it's compact and fast (I'm using an AMD Geode LX SBC for my CarPC). RR is very slow on this limited hardware. Do you ever consider splitting up the coding work? I'm fairly capable in C/C++ (lot's of low-level embedded experience) and would be willing to help out here & there if you've got source code posted anywhere.

    Also, since mplayer supports AAC files (.M4A) right out of the box, is it possible to allow EniCar to play these files too? Right now, EniCar does not show these files in the audio browser.

    Cheers,
    MPR.
