The visual window can be stretched, but it makes the visual look icky. Maybe there could be a full-screen switch (like Alt- Enter in Windows Media Player) that could display the visual at its intended size and simply black out the rest of the screen??
I was talking about resolution, yes the size of the window can be changed but the resolution stays the same leading to chunky graphics. Which would still occur regardless of fullscreen or not. The resolution and the failure of some vis's to be flexible enough to handle any res', is the reason XMPlay does'nt support a user definable resolution.
One more suggestion, in sonique you can configure some of the vis's by clicking on the screen (honto's phase is one, spec 'n hopp is another) can this be reproduced?
Nope, XMPlay does not support configuration this way *yet*. If you feeling good you can always edit their vis config file manually, at least for the time being.
-I'd like an auto playlist option, where playlists are automatically created or updated from defined directories... possibly updated with the pressing of an update button.
-I'd like it to feed off of an external playlist editor too, with the same feature as above.
A release of xmplay will incorporate DDE commands (I think? Heh sure Ian will tell me if I'm talking bollocks), so an external prog could tell XMPlay to open a generated playlist. Inbuilt by-directory playlist generation would doubtfully be used by everyone, but a little external app to generate them for you and update as required could be possible.
-If used in conjunction with a larger playlist front-end, it would be nice to be able to minimize the player to the system tray.
*Mental note, finish writing FAQ*
-I don't know if it's available now, but I'd like every single command option (including configuration of plugins if it's possible) to have keyboard commands. This is for enabling XMPlayer with Girder (a remote control software).
-It would be neat if one could try different mp3-decoders via plugins, and not only be "stuck" with one that could be outdated if you for some strange reason find it impossible to keep spending a good portion of your life developing the next version.
That many shortcuts would be a bit of overkill, for most part all the controls that you would change frequently already have shortcuts.
If you want more it may be best for you to say which bit you want shortcuts for, this would save making shortcuts that absolutely noone is interested in (Perhaps a poll?)
The thing about mp3 is that sooner or later its gonna be killed off by a bigger better format, so I would worry too much about XMPlay engine stagnating while new mp3 surprises pop up.
