MPlayer for Kindle 4 Touch

Hello,
I was bored I can't use my Kindle 4 Touch to her to my favourite Online Radio Stations.
So I made a menu for yifanlu's GUI Launcher for Kindle Touch to control MPlayer from this thread:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=119851

You need of course a Jailbreak and installed yifanlu's GUI Launcher for Kindle Touch.

Just download, extract and copy the folder "mplayer" to your Kindle's "extensions" folder.
(Like: ""x:\extensions\mplayer\menu.json")

You can use the GUI Launcher to control MPlayer:
- play playlist (edit the "playlist" file with notepad to edit streaming URLs)
- play all music in "/music" folder
- shuffle play all music in "/music" folder
- pause, stop, prev, next, mute, volume up, volume down

Next I want to figure out:
- how to make a better menu
- how to access MPlayer settings faster (in case of too loud music)
- how to display current played song at the display.

Question: is it possible to get a home button double click event?


EDIT:
-Volume setting in "VOLUME" does not get read at next start
(music always starts at 100% volume so I had to set "-af volume=-15"

EDIT2: Where is my attachment gone? -ReAdded

Hey,
for now, I can send a status text to the display with: eips x y "$MPlayerTitle"

there was a landscape hack with javascript in mp3:


Is it possible to do something similar, like a own menu to control mplayer / volume?
Because menu -> Launcher -> MPlayer -> volume is so a long way ...
Any ideas?

Still working on this thing.
ToDo:
- Show Status text (on title change) with eips x y "text"
- Get song status from mplayer in command line (any ideas?)
- MPlayer starts everytime on 100% volume (bug?) (any ideas?)

I think messing with the home button is a UX convention taboo.

Does your "edit the playlist file" mean users can select specific MP3 files from a menu display of all the MP3 files?

I have a large number of MP3 files audio books. The current Kindle Touch MP3 player only allows sequential play of the audio books, and I have to scroll thru a lot of files to get to the audio book that I want. I can not view all my MP3 files from the KT, and have to USB connect to the PC to view from the PC. Also, when I exit and return to the MP3 player, it starts back to the original first MP3 file, and not the last played MP3 file to pick up where I left off. If you can add these 2 functions, that would be a great time saver. Thanks.

This compilation has disabled radio functionality of mplayer. It would be good to recompile it again with radio feature added.

try playing for example:
Code:
mplayer -radio channels=104.4-Sibir,103.9-Maximum

I installed this and I really love the idea. But I was wondering it anyone has tried the shuffle functionality of this? Every time I try to shuffle my mp3s, my kindle will freeze up and I have to reboot. Has anyone else experienced this?

I've noticed that it doesn't freeze up when I'm navigating the home screen/ebook folders or using the browser, but only when I open a book and try to read.

So, which FM radio module do you plan to solder into your kindle to USE that function after recompiling it?

I don't know how to run strace on the application. Can it be run locally on the computer I used to compile mpg123 or do I need to install something on the Kindle? I tried to use gdb but I don't know where to start looking.

Thanks for your help!
