I'm not sure if this has been asked or already implemented, but is there iPod support?

Unfortunately, not yet :(

It's all good, it's only in Alpha. I tried it out and it's great. Good job so far, and good luck with the future development of Style Jukebox. :)

WOOOW! This is HUUUGE!! Finnaly something that maybe can beat Winamp. And the feature that is mostly important: QUEUE! CONGRATULATIONS MAN! I can't wait to see the final version! :woot:


Edit: OH MY GOSH! The way the cover art appears! It's freakin awesome! :o It makes me remember the Longhorn Concept days. :o

ok, i broke down and installed it, it is nice, very nice.

but it is using all of 120+ MB of ram.

this is why i dont use .net, it is a ram hog, always is.

however, i will agree, this is a VERY nice media player. it would probally work betterunder Win7 that it works under WinXP.

i just find it funny that when i have 512 of ram, when i run firefox and this along with other normal processes, my pc starts to get slow.

running only this app and firefox.

Anyhow, if you can reduce the ram usage amount by atleast 1/2, then this will be a major competitor for a free download to compete with MPC.

it's memory usage is alot less in vista, but i'm guessing its because vista handles WPF differently from XP thanks to the desktop composition engine.

given that this is going to be quite a full-fledged free Media Center of some sort, i'll say it's memory usage is acceptable.

Interesting comments. I think Johnny Alex need an applause for hard work and share the program and ideas with us. Don't think?

Here, with Windows 7, take 57MB of RAM on 64bit edition.

Edit.- Can you make the same icon in the tray as the ico of the shortcut desktop and integrates two icos of the tray in one menu?

The black & white ico is precious, combines with net, volume and security center of W7!!! Remember that have semi-transparency with dark lines and white tones each one.

Yeah sure. Only Min/Max/Close buttons are too big.

First, hi guys, I'm new around here. I'm one of Johnny Alex's best friends (I think :devil: ). I have been testing and using Style Jukebox since the first version and I am really proud he managed to make such a great app. He is opened to all opinions and really likes the critics so bring it on! Also if you like the app please recommend it to your friends and so on.

Edit.- Can you make the same icon in the tray as the ico of the shortcut desktop and integrates two icos of the tray in one menu?

That icon actualy is in system tray, I just think it's hidden from you on Windows 7. Works very well for me. I don't know about the two icos in one menu part :P

This is pretty trivial, but I can't seem to scroll horizontally with my wheel mouse.

And the player looks fantastic. Great job.

I am truly impressed with this. I hope you can add something like iTunes's album art view when I click on the album and it opens my list. I have a large music library so seeing them listed by song is quite hefty...

Awesome animations!

I like it. :D Style Jukebox will allow users to create and change skins.

Edit: You used my favorite songs. Thanks!

Are you going to add repeat 1 song? I find myself using your player more than WMP, but clicking the same song to make it repeat is a hassle .

It is available: check here http://www.stylejuke...up=audioconsole

Repeat button from audio console has 3 states: No Repeat, Repeat All or Repeat Current Track.

Thanks for your interest!

Style Jukebox is making rapid progress. I am lucky because I am one of Johnny's friends and I know what he is working on. I can tell you that it will be a major upgrade when he releases it.

P.S. Video support is coming!
