One of my customers is "absolutely thrilled
" with PlayerPal. However, he is also "impatiently waiting for for 4.3" which is the next version. As he accurately observes, I last wrote about the delay to 4.3 seven months ago! Man, how time flies.
So here is the update. I spent too long on 4.3 and I ran out of time. Currently I am working on another project that will last (probably) until the end of July, at which point I can crack on with PlayerPal again.
I'm sorry for any disappointment the delay has caused. Rest assured it
is not abandoned. PlayerPal support is still at full strength. I love
working on PlayerPal but it's just not a living, so sometimes I have to
do other projects.
In hindsight I should have done a smaller release with localised changes. Everyone wants playlist support in all the skins. That would
not take long to do.
So what about now? Well, I will try and come up with an elegant way of getting playlist support to you (time permitting). Plus if you want to hack at it yourself you can check the PlayerPal SDK
(which is very alpha right now, but fine for you ASP.NET-ers).
Actually, if you want to get playlists in the PSP, this worked for one guy I emailed....
"Just copy the PlaylistsView.ascx file from the PDAClassic skin into the PSP skin folder. When you have done that try http://localhost:9999/default.aspx?view=PlaylistsView (from the PSP skin). You might want to add a link to this from the header of footer panel."
You can do something similar for BigBrowser. Obviously, I would like to do it in a nicer way for you.
