Wow ! I often thought about if something like this would be possible with DX. Well, it is. What about a DJ player with 2 decks ?

Hi Vad_M this is thorough and easy to use! Lot's of buttons and options to check out. The media library looks good. The equalizer is a fantastic addition. Excellent work.

Outstanding Work! The best DX Media player yet!

Just FYI...The "My Stations" under "Internet Radio" is labeled as "My Stantions". No biggy, just wanted to notify for a future update.

Again...Nicely Done!

Jeez, Vlad...this is the most impressive gadget I've seen. I'm stunned.

Is there a way to view the library by artist instead of album name? I've got waaaay too many albums to remember the names of all of them

The 'Clear List', 'Move Item Up', 'Remove Selected' and 'Move Item Down' buttons don't seem to be doing anything. The window title says 'Playlist is Opened...'

Building the database missed any album comprised of only .mp3 files. My music folder is arranged: /music/artist/album. All the albums with .wma files were found. I tried deleting the database and starting over, 'rebuild database' and 'Add to Database', but none of those worked. The album would load into the player and play, the the album doesn't show up in the album listing. I'm going to try re-tagging them with Media Monkey see if that helps.

If you need anymore information I will be glad to help you anyway I can. This is a most amazing player

Vad_m my very good friend,

This is an amazing gadget, without a doubt your best work to date. As a programmer, i cant even begin to imagine how long this took.
You are a MASTER here, even if your title doesnt show it, you are without a doubt the best DX programmer around. You do things with DX that the rest of us have never done, or even tried.

Hi Friends, I have a serious problem with my internet connection last time so I can't answer you in good time by this reason .

To all: Big Thanks! I'm very glad that you have not found a serious bugs in this gadget yet . However I'll be waiting for your messages about.

To jlaj1989: The beta version was finished a several months ago. However I don't want to send it here yet because I must add a lot of powerful and useful functions into SD Desktop. I want that this application worked better.

To Carl[c242]: This is very good idea and I'm really can do this. But I don't understand what I need do for this. May be you can give me more details by e-mail? What is '2 decks' and how such player must work?

To KiloKrash: This is because the word "station" is write with letter "n" in Russian. I have forgot to erase it when translated the names of menu items... I'll correct this much soon.

To Werewolf:
1. It seems that I have understood... Its need to put the Name of Artist before Album (i.e. 'artist - album') to browse the Media Library. Is this right?
2. This Media Player always create the automatic virtual Playlists when it play any Media Files (*.wpl to play URL or a single files and *.m3u to play the Media Folders content). By this reason you see the message "playlist is opened".
But you can't use the options 'Move up', 'Clear list', etc... in this case. These options will be available only if you will work with your own 'static' Playlists which you will create, save and open as a PLAYLISTS. There is a special 'edit control' to work with Media Playlists (not with files or folders).
3. This is very strange that you have told about *.wma files. These both formats (*.mp3 and *.wma) has the equal priorities into the Player... I'm sorry but I have only 10 *.wma files on my Library (The Crystal Method - Tweekend) so I didn't see the situation you told about. I'll try to correct this.
The list of Albums which you can see in the 'File' menu is automatically extracted from your Windows Media Library (its not created by the Media Player). So check please is there all of Albums which you can't find are already added and available in your Windows Media Library.
However I can make a script which will create the own list of Albums inwardly the Media Player. Let me know if this have a sense and I'll try to add it into the Player much quickly.

To RomanDA: Hmmm... I'm very modest person... And I'm not a programmer...
I just love DesktopX and don't want to see any applications which created without Stardock Technology on my desktop. For example I have used two Players (Windows Media and WinAmp) to play my music collection for a long time. But all of skins which I have downloaded had not beautiful corners with ugly tines. Why? Because there are not a DesktopX objects!
Herewith I have tired to use these players alternately. So I decided to create my own player which will work as a Windows Media and as a WinAmp simultaneously. As well as which will support one of Stardock Object Media Playlists (*.pls). Then I began work... May tell you on a big secret that I have worked with this nearly 3.5 months total. This is much long but my desktop is cleared from any Non DesktopX applications and I'm really happy when look on it now.

sorry... My internet connection bug... I have removed the double message.
Comment #13 Monday, December 4, 2006 7:27 AM
IS there anyway i can test it now?
Comment #14 Monday, December 4, 2006 8:44 AM
To jlaj1989: Not yet. Sorry but there is not a whole gadget which can work by itself...

Vad : The Problem ist You would need 2 decks being able to play 2 different songs independent from each other.
Comment #17 Tuesday, December 5, 2006 10:10 AM
To Carl[c242]: It seems to me I know how to make this... Apropos I need to add crossfade between these two tracks. Ok. I'll try to realize this much soon.
Comment #18 Tuesday, December 5, 2006 11:05 PM
You may be modest, but you are also wrong. Anyone who can make something this magnificent IS definitely a programmer!
Comment #19 Monday, March 12, 2007 6:51 PM

Very impressed. It's not only beautiful it does it all!!

One request. Make the edges sticky so that the other components will move with it when it's dragged around the desktop!!

I do seem to be having difficulty getting access to creating a new radio play list. I'm not at all sure where to look at this point in finding where to input the needed info. I got the radio to play by putting an address in the Play URL area and that's OK but what will happen to it when I shut down and reboot tomorrow am?? Usually there are text files that can be hand edited but I'm not finding any on the system. So I can only guess they are hidden very well or the info is written to the exe file??

Anyway, great player. Hope you continue on with it. I sent you a little note by the way. Hope you got it.

All the best

Richard ~
