Finally! Almost a year after the first mentioning of my new media player for the Sharp Zaurus, Iím today officially releasing the Quasar Media Player for SharpROM- and pdaXrom-based distributions.
For more details please visit the projectís homepage: http://katastrophos.net/quasar

An SL-6000 user here (default Sharp rom). Quasar is absolutely beautiful!! It is also about 30 seconds faster opening than Zplayer. (Zplayer is really slow opening, about 40 seconds.) It plays music files very nicely and created a playlist for both music and video. Very nice indeed.

For other SL-6000 users information, the mplayer settings I used are:

-vo fbdev -fbmode qvga -vm -vop rotate=1

I have only one issue with this. If I view a video, then close the video, the screen does not redraw properly. Parts of the screen remain blank. Rotating the screen and then rotating it back fixes the problem. Zplayer did not have this problem, so there must be some useful code somewhere in there that affects this.

Kino2 also had this problem and I seem to recall a Qcop call (or lack thereof) being suspected as the cause. However, I am not a programmer, so I don't know. Another contributing factor may be our lack of an updated video driver for the SL-6000.

I have submitted a bug report also to:http://trac.katastrophos.net/quasar/newticket

Keep up the good work, and thanks a million!!
