As I've said in other thread I have a dream of a perfect audioplayer for our devices.
Currently I use Quasar (interface for mplayer). It has a lot of unnecessary features and it's a bit baggy, other players I've tried do not seems to be perfect.
Is anyone interested? What I want right now is to propose and discuss:
- features
- decide what base to use (mplayer or what?)
- language (qt, or so)
- interface (colour, scrolling etc)

I can design the interface, make a pixmaps and push some ideas.

But again first of all... Is anyone interested?

Hey Kroll.

There is so much there with Xmms, perhaps you should give it a revisit.

There are even thousands of skins for this if you search for Winamp themes.

If you really insist on starting your own, here's a couple of name suggestions...

Ingénue
AF Player (audio frequency)
or name it after your girlfriend. I'm sure that she'll think that would be hot.

By the way Kroll, I wasn't trying to shoot down your idea, but Xmms can be customized like crazy plus it already has all of the audio features most people would like (eq, skinning, playing internet radio, flac support, cover viewer, etc.)

Not only that, some of the skins are awesome.



Just trying to save you from getting a new headache.

If you are encountering bugs in Quasar, please file a bug over at http://trac.katastrophos.net/quasar/report/1

Also, if you have any other input, please drop me a line.
That would definitely help to improve things in the new version that I am currently developing.

Here is a pretty old preview featuring a prototype of the new interface: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ePoF...ature=youtu.be

Thanks!

oh snap! That skin for Xmms looks like a Winamp skin! I absolutely <3 Winamp and I would love a Winamp port (with the exact same features) for N810/N900.. with some features added/modified of course. I already have some ideas in mind, and I'm willing to show them to a developer.

Not using Qt may be preferable as not everyone have cloned maemo to SD yet.

And using mplayer as backend could allow for interaction with a2dp.

It is a Winamp skin.

Some of my favorites are:
http://www.1001skins.com/skin_details.html?skin_id=3645
http://www.1001skins.com/skin_details.html?skin_id=2756
http://www.1001skins.com/skin_details.html?skin_id=2038
http://www.1001skins.com/skin_details.html?skin_id=2904
http://www.1001skins.com/skin_details.html?skin_id=2900
http://www.1001skins.com/skin_details.html?skin_id=765
and the one I like the most
http://www.1001skins.com/skin_details.html?skin_id=2754

But hey, I don't want to derail this thread any more so I'll stop right here.

Best of luck with whatever you decide Kroll.

@Addison
Thanks, bro. It is very nice of you but the one thing I got during 2 and a half years using my n810 is: Desktop application is for desktop PC.
IMO all skins you've posted are unsuitable for tablet. Look at our screens, we need something neat and clear.
Do not want to hurt you, man. Sorry If I did
By the way, you should try AIMP instead of Winamp. I use it about 6 or 7 years and it is much better then Winamp.

@evilJazz
Oh so you are developer of Quasar? So thank you very much!
Unfortunatelly I don't know how to report about bugs (I saw the link u've posted but I still can't understand what to do) but I can send you a PM or post it here.

I would be interested in another media player.

I would like to see an interface similar to the N900 player which is clean, simple and to the point.
One of the key and best things about the N900 player is the "one-touch" random play from the whole library.

Otherwise reuse the interface from the current maemo4 player, but "pretty" it up slightly with album art.
