I think we are all waiting for someone to create a new mp3 player for us. you will just have to camp the aftermarket software part of these forums like the rest of us and hope it happens!

I have to say this is exciting news!! I know that many people will be happy for this.

when will you be able to answer some questions about it? how will it handle video? blah blah blah all that good stuff!

You should let us know when its done! Get ready for some bandwidth to get used!

GREAT WORK!!!

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.

please feel free to send any questions or feature requests to [email address]

cheers,
jon

update: Mp3 Mixing/DJ application now under development: meshsystem >> MeshDJ - Mp3 Mixing Tool for Pearl

this is much much simpler to program so should be a quicker turnaround, due mid feb at the latest all being well.

Subscribing to this thread.

M3U support in the future by any chance? I'd rather make my playlists on my computer than click on each file to add to playlist.

I just want a bass boosting EQ. The Pearl sounds like crap now compared to my nano and I am really disappointed that I still have to carry around 2 devices.

Snap this is awesome!!!

OK, so some ideas I would love thrown in is gapless playback, and possibly a way of grabbing album art off the net for MP3's. M3U playlists would be hot, as well as the ability to play music by genre.

Would there be an option for easy skinning support? This would be awesome for those that like to create new skins and really customize the player... and I'd be so willing to drop some money on a REAL music player for my blackberry. EQ would be nice, but if it can't be done it can't be done. Not a deal breaker to me.

Visualizations would also be kind of cool, but I'm sure would be impractical. Just some extra bling. Yeah!

One of my biggest peeves with the BB MP3 player is that, once you have a folder playing, you cannot go back and Enqueue any more songs.

Hope the Mesh MP3 Player provides this option.
