    Thumbs up Beta test the latest mediaPlayer: last.fm supported :)

    Advertisement



    Dear Supporters, some news for you:
    There is a beta of our new version available for public access from:
    OTA: http://www.dollars5.com/QA1/mediaPlayer.jad
    Desktop Install: http://www.dollars5.com/QA1/mediaPlayer.zip

    The following are the improvements:
    1] Added Last.fm scrobbling (Let the world know what song you listen at present - more details from Last.fm – The Social Music Revolution site)
    2] Added Last.fm radio player (listen to tracks as you wish - search by tag or artist and stream the songs - make sure you have very good bandwidth and set the radio buffer level to a larger value - it is very high bandwidth streaming)
    3] Added support for side volume control keys
    4] Added 'Auto detect' audio path - some good news for Bt users (adjustable from settings screen)
    5] Improved Internet Radio streaming
    6] Wall paper changing (adjustable from settings screen)
    7] Seek audio/video support
    8] Auto detect new codecs as supported by the device platform (preparation for the possible WMA support)
    9] Battery/Signal level
    10] Auto Start playlist on startup (adjustable from settings screen)
    11] Auto Stop at duration or at low/set battery level (adjustable from settings screen)
    12] Improved Crossfade (adjustable from settings screen)
    13] Forward and rewind for videos by percentage set in settings

    There is some bad news for the XM Radio and Sirius fans - both seems to stream in WMV format which is not supported at present by RIM Platform at present - we are working on alternatives that will allow us to stream the satellite radios without violating their Terms of Service (we could transcode at our server and re-broadcast - but that violates the TOS of Sirius and XM - also puts a load on our servers )

    A few more secret features to be announced sooner - so stay tuned. We really would appreciate your feedback on the features and suggestions to improve further.

    Re: Beta test the latest mediaPlayer: last.fm supported :)

    Thanks for reporting - we by default try to handshake with Last.fm servers - hence the problems. If you have configured the Last.fm details - it should not happen - also try disabling the Scrobble check box in the settings screen.

    Have forwarded this issue to the developers and should be fixed sooner.

    Regards.

    Can you retry after closing the player and starting again - this is mainly due to network problem or due to erro in communication with Last.fm

    Re: Beta test the latest mediaPlayer: last.fm supported :)

    How to use the playlist organizer, here are the instructions:
    1] Launch Playlist Manager (menu option or second icon in the bottom toolbar)
    2] Select a playlist where you want to organize th songs
    3] hit Menu and select Move option - so now the Move mode is enabled
    4] Scroll to a song that you want to move to other location, while you have focus - click the trackball once on that song.
    5] Now scroll to the location where you want the selected song to be placed, click th trackball again to reposition.
    6] Repeat the steps by enabling the move mode for individual songs and move them as needed

    This feature is a basic implementation - we would love to hear from you on how to improve it (we are planning to indicate the move mode via UI icon and to highlight the selected song) - more feedback would really be appreciated.

    How to use the new Seek feature (usefull when trying to play long podcasts or larger videos, also when fast forward fails - at times):

    1] While a song is being played, Hit menu
    2] Select Seek to launch the seek dialog (the total media duration will be dispalyed in the dialog for your peruse)
    3] Set the desired mins and seconds (make sure it is within the total media duration)
    4] Hit ok to seek at the desired time.

    I will also compile more instructions on using the new features and will keep this thread updated.

    Thanks for your interest and kind support. Looking forward to hear on the new features and also your kind suggestions to improve the mediaPlayer
