Open Media Player is a full free open source rewrite of the stock mediaplayer.
While I started the project, my current free time slowed down updates a lot, so OMP is currently maintained by gidzzz.

All OMP info can be found on this wiki page http://wiki.maemo.org/Open_Media_Player

All existing MAFW-based apps will work fine with this, the stock widget will open this mediaplayer, media-im-status-updater will fetch metadata correctly, etc...

BT headsets (with buttons) should work fine (tested with a BH-503).

Once all bugs are fixed, this will probably make its way into the CSSU, but right now, it's a bit early.

Not sure if screenshots are necessary, it looks exactly like the stock player but with portrait mode

Entertainment view:


(tap the album to show the playlist, tap next to the control buttons (play, next, and prev) to toggle them.

Bug reports expected (lots of them) and are welcome.

Thanks to nicolai for the C++ MafwSource and MafwRenderer adapters.
Thanks to Venemo for the UI for the FMTX dialog (which is actually a rewrite, the stock one flips the player to landscape).
If you have jacekowski's fmtxd, feel free to kill the checks done (headphones etc...) in the UI, it's in settings.
Thanks to gidzzz for picking this up

Please note that this is an alpha release, the mediaplayer turned out to be a
bigger project than I expected



What's planned:
  • Playlist creator and editor (stock implementation sucks).

All existing MAFW-based apps will work fine with this, the stock widget will open this mediaplayer, media-im-status-updater will fetch metadata correctly, etc...
To "replace" the stock player (if you don't want to do that, use the script below).
Place the binary in /usr/local/bin/
Code:
nano /usr/share/dbus-1/services/com.nokia.mediaplayer.service
Change /usr/bin/mediaplayer to /usr/local/bin/mediaplayer, note that this will cause mime_open to stop working until implemented.

BT headsets (with buttons) should work fine (tested with a BH-503).

To use alongside the stock player (tapping the stock widget will open the stock player):
Place the binary in /usr/local/bin/

QML files are to be installed in /opt/mediaplayer/qml/
I usually update the mediaplayer whenever I add something, so here's a handy script to update it (or install it)
Code:
root
apt-get install wget #if you don't have it installed.
wget http://mohammadag.xceleo.org/public/maemo/install_mediaplayer.sh
chmod +x install_mediaplayer.sh
./install_mediaplayer.sh

Bug reports expected (lots of them) and are welcome.

new media player doesn't support home network right?
Want an icon in the menu? Run the script with --desktop-file (./install_mediaplayer --desktop-file). doesn't work
/bin/sh: ./install_mediaplayer: not found

UPnP? Not yet, no.
Code:
root
apt-get install wget #if you don't have it installed.
wget http://mohammadag.xceleo.org/public/maemo/install_mediaplayer.sh
chmod +x install_mediaplayer.sh
./install_mediaplayer.sh --desktop-file

just a suggestion,

may be a widget for homescreen be added where we can watch movies or any video files directly from homescreen...pause and can open it directly from homescreen, also having options for different sizes....if its possiable then this would be a great useful...

Yeah, right, sorry, rm install_mediaplayer.sh and rerun the steps.
