snk4ever and xamindar, thanks again for the testfiles!

I think most of the character encoding problems should be fixed now that the new tagging library (TagLib) is incorporated. At least all of the test files I received were displayed okay.
Besides, the initial scanning of audio files that are not already in the database should be a lot faster now. According to my quick tests the scanning of 3300 audio files took only 2 minutes - compared to 12 minutes when solely relying on MPlayer for the metadata-scanning. Pretty cool.

A new release should be out soon.

Yay, Can't wait to test it out! I must admit, I am sick of the sharp music player. While it does most of what I need, it is SSLLLOOOOOWWWW. Every time I turn on my Zaurus it tells me "o machi kudasai!" while it does whatever it dos.

Hehe, soon for Angstrom and OpenEmbedded...

The recipe is almost ready, one or to patch files still pending but that is a matter of minutes (hopefully).

Looks great on Angstrom also...

Any volunteer to check it into the OE repository ?

The recipe and patches are ready to be checked in. However I am looking for someone to check it into OE as I do not have write access to the monotone repository.

Looks great, although one might have to tweak the fonts a bit in the skins.ini file.

First off, amazing. I love the player. I have been awaiting this anxiously since antikx announced it on his site neigh one year ago.

I have a feature request for future releases. I would love to see the ability to switch to a gui with big buttons that control the simple functions of the player (ie next, back, volume, fastfwd, fastbkwd) much like the old sharp player. So, theoretically, if I was using it as a car mp3 player I wouldn't really need to look at the screen, searching for a button... had too many accidents to know they aren't fun.

I really hope this doesn't come off as ungreatful, I think this player is awsome and I appreciate the time and work you have put into it.

Thanks!

Thanks a lot for your feedbacks! I really appreciate it.
I hope to have the new release out this weekend if everything goes as planned.
Quite a lot of bugfixes and enhancements. Especially the video playback got some special treatment. smile.gif

Fushnchupsh, good idea. I was toying with the idea of extending the PlayInfo screen quite a bit. Bigger buttons could go there. Perhaps gestures too... However, this is a few releases away.
In the meantime you could either modify the skin for bigger buttons or just use the keyboard instead. I'm using my C3200 for audio playback in my car (in this cradle). Actually it is one of the few reason I'm developing Quasar. And controlling Quasar via keyboard works very well and IMO isn't nearly as distracting as soft-buttons on the display.

actually, after I posted this, I set up my c3200 in the car and quasar works beautifully as is. I mean, bigger buttons would be neat, but I am toying with some other more....integrated ideas wink.gif... Now if I could only bring myself to put the dremel to my beloved pt cruiser's dash haha

Thanks for all of your hard work!

Most people do not have a fully fledged Z cradle for their cars and PDA cradles are not designed to have the keyboard open.
So the standard setup propably is to use the clamshell devices in PDA mode without keyboard and here a pure touchscreen interaction is extremely helpful.

Nobody seemed to be interested to check the recipie into OE currently- I did not get any response.
So here is the ipk file, built for aklta and Angstrom, though it should also run on C3xxx devices.
May it be of any use.

You didn't attach the recipes to your mail and you didn't attach them to bugzilla. It's very hard for us to check things in we don't have access to.

I installed the latest version available at your website but it doesn't display the Asian nor French caracters...
Is it coming in a later version or should it be available now ?

No, unfortunately the new version 0.9 isn't out yet. I've been too busy with other stuff. Hopefully tonight or sometime tomorrow...
Version 0.85 uses the old tagging library which has the Unicode quirks.
