A few requests
« on: February 06, 2006, 04:28:22 am »
Hey Salmon King,

Love your work! Got a couple of nice to haves:

I'm using a LCD screen and will be running 1024x768. There is quite a bit of real-estate used for the song information.
 
I was wondering if it were possible to have extra visualizations instead of having so much empty room?
 
I'd love to display both the spectrum and album cover.


Also, would it be possible to connect up to an internet radio station using shoutcast or something similar? I'd love to listen to smoothjazz.com on my jukebox, although I know it's then not a jukebox per se. Maybe have an album as a radio station or something, and it won't stop playing until next is selected or clear.


Lastly, with the tracklist, if genres are used, the track numbers aren't really useful. Can artist - title be displayed here instead? I know then you would not be able to fit as many tracks in the space but it makes more sense when using genres.


Cheers

The only problem here is that I am currently working on a touch screen keypad that it taking up that space!  When I've finished that, I'll look at what other options I can present.

Sorry, but I don't see this happening.

You do have the option to show just the track names in that list (only shows 5 from memory), not sure there'd be room to add artist in there as well.....

Cheers,

SK - I'd like to second the request for two items in current song display.  I don't have a touchscreen, maybe the touchscreen keypad could be an "option" only for touchscreen users.  Having both Album Art and VUMeter display would be awesome.

Thanks again for all your efforts....and sorry about my other post...I need to learn to read all the other posts before I start one...

THANKS.

I have an 18" touchscreen LCD running at 1024 x 768 and if you increase the font sizze of the songs then it fills up that space nicely and elimiates the error of people selecting the wrong song.
