thanks for listening.
There would be a way as MediaBox can now accept files on the command line (even while it's running you can e.g. enter "MediaBox /media/mmc1/music.mp3" to load that file into MediaBox).
So with some tweaking of Maemo's MIME type associations, MediaBox could be registered as default player for certain file types.

This is a task where you don't need any programming. Any volunteers?

This has the highest priority to be fixed.

I got the 9.11.10 update for n8x0. Very nice with potrait mode! pycage really does rock.

I do have a feature request. Would it be possible to add rotation commands to mediabox, so we wouldn't have to minimize mediabox to rotate? Also it would be neat if sliding out the keyboard to type in mediabox would cause it to automatically rotate to landscape. But these are just bells and wistles. Thhanks again for the great app!

I tried Mediabox a long time ago and could not get used to the UI but I'm trying out this latest version (N810) and it seems more accessible (to me) now. Nice work.

Will play around with it and some plug-ins - but what I mostly wanted to say is thank you for keeping Diablo users in mind.

EDIT: Some things I'd love to see added/changed after playing with Mediabox for a bit are;

a) Put the slider on the right side and not the left,

b) I love the widget but it is WAY big. Would it be possible to have a small/compact widget version without the CD image and the blank rows between the three actions. There's not much screen real-estate on the NITs

c) I wish I could adjust the volume level with the h/w keys from any screen when in Mediabox and not just on the screen where I can see the media being played,

d) Is the only way to change to portrait/landscape to go through the actions in advance-backlight?

e) Is it technically possible to make the UI on N8x0 activate icons by one tap instead of doubletaps (or as I often have to do 3-4 taps)? I would assume so as that is how the icons on the right side works.
This is probably my biggest pet-peeve with the UI

f) I manually selected a folder to index/scan for media. It had a number of sub-folders. Many of them had thumbnails, etc in them and I ended up with 20+ folders in the pictures folder. How do I remove folders from showing up when looking at local images (I can 'add to playlist' and 'put on shelf' but not 'remove from index')?

g) Lastly, something I'm not sure is Mediabox related as I seem to have this problem outside of it - I can not get any youtube videos to play. In Media box I tries setting the flash media player to osso, gstream and mplayer but none of them works and either nothings happens or I get a message 'Invalid Media'.

Yes, this will be possible once portrait mode is properly supported by the N8x0 version. Version 2010.09.11 seems to work well in portrait mode already if you enable it by hand, so it might get integrated soon.

The slider is on the left so that you can easily grab it on the edge of the screen without having to worry to hit other buttons. What's wrong with it being on the left?

I agree. Something along the size of the N900 media player widget would be nice. 412b is the man behind the widget.

Good point!

Currently yes, because portrait mode is not supported by the N8x0 version of MediaBox at the moment. But we're close to it!

Maybe I'm going to make this configurable. Actually the touchscreen of the N8x0 isn't sensitive enough to make single taps work well. To often you end up opening stuff instead of scrolling.
The N900 version defaults to single tapping because its touchscreen is excellent.

Removing particular files from the index is not yet implemented. You can clear the whole index, however.

Can you get YouTube to play on the N8x0 with any app, or maybe the problem lies elsewhere?

It is not always easy to select a single song/file/whatever because the frame around it seems to distract a click. The default select behaviour in a native Fremantle QT program seems to be easier.

There is compact layout for Maemo5 already, as soon as I finish porting to OS2008 there will be one too

Thanks for all the hard work! Loving the update for the N8XX.

Controlling the volume level with the h/w keys from any screen would be a great feature.

Thanks Again!
