View Full Version : Prototype of Album art on the squeezebox

I did a prototype of album art on the Squeezebox for the contest.
Unfortunately I ran out of time. What I got done was a shell script that
used the PBM tools to produce the frames to display on the Squeezebox. I
then ran into problems getting Perl installed and working, alas. Thus my
dreams of owning one of the new graphic Squeezeboxes were crushed.

Anyway, I've put a couple of samples up on my web page at
http://www.thecolleys.net/Squeezebox
also known as...
http://thecolleys.ewok.homelinux.net/Squeezebox/index.html

If anyone wants the shell scripts, drop me a note and I'll send them to
you.

Paul,

This is great! Join us over on the developer list to try to enlist
some help in getting this working. I think it would make a great
plugin...
