Might already be a function (or something I can do elsewhere) but is there a possible way to get CoolPlayer working with MultiMedia keyboards (MSoft Keyboard standard should be okay).. IE - so you can use Play/Pause, Forward Track, Back Track, and stop??

Other then that - Coolplayer is awesome - it is great sounding, wonderful to work with - stable on my WinXP, and really is nice to see it only uses so LITTLE amount of memory when running! smiling smiley (and processor useage is darn low also - great!!)

Regards

I third this, its the only major absence I feel using this player instead of winamp.

P.S. I think 2.03 is better than 2.04 or 2.05, 2.03 is more stable (for me).

Gxcad,

I've been trying to reach you for a while now.....
- What are these stability problems that you are having? (so that I can fix them!)

On the Multimedia keyboard note..... I am going to "borrow" my nextdoor neighbor's keyboard this weekend and I'll take a look at adding it (no promises though!)

Thanks MarcusO - I'm trying to find the specifications for the Microsoft multimedia standard commands. Most keyboards should follow that standard for their number basic settings (play, track forward, track prev, stop, and pause) - If I find them I will post link on here. Winamp, and Microsoft Media Player use these standards - I believe SOnique does also.

If keyboard support doesn't happen, use Girder. I've got an infrared remote control hooked up to Coolplayer with it, it's definately worth the trouble I went to. Go to girder.nl and have a look. If it seems like something worth trying, leave a note and I'll send you a little config file I made.
