This is MP3 only. I've not looked at video at all, i'm a musician so getting a nice mp3 player is my main concern, video may come later depending on time constraints.
Version 1 will be pretty sparse but still nicer than the default pearl player. Once the first stable release is out future versions will have loads more features including the ability to mix and layer tracks like you would on vinyl turntables (no pitch control though of course
i might release a mixing application seperately, bare bones without playlists, just two sets of controls and two file explorers).
the ability to ffwd/rew through a track might be missing from the first release. shuffle might have to wait as well - it all depends how quickly the remaining bugs get resolved.
am also working on incorporating scrobbling features for integration with Last.fm – The Social Music Revolution
- this might have to wait for a future release too.
i'm keen to get this stable and out there being used asap - the 8800 is due in a few months so i want to be able to port the code and have a release ready for that device as soon as it's released.
