View Full Version : "Party mode" or skin?

On occasion I've brought out a laptop during a party and connected it to Slimserver so that people can browse and add songs to the playlist. It's always popular and a good way to show the capabilities off a bit.

The issue is that it is easy for people to accidentally (or intentionally) make changes to the settings, or wipe out an entire playlist while qeueing up their own selection.

Is there any kind of locked down mode, settings or perhaps a simple skin that would disallow that?

I seem to remember that Moose might be good for this kind of thing, but have never used it.

To protect from the accidental settings change:

Thanks Michael - that certainly fits the bill.

By the way - nice job on the slimremote software as well. I have it on my 8525 and it works like a charm!

Yup, Moose has a party mode. It works best with fullscreen mode and
the library embedded in the now playing window.

As well as the UI, you can use the command line paramaters to turn
party mode and fullscreen mode on.

The party mode's not 100% foolproof, but every little helps..

Suggestions/issues/ideas for improvements always welcome.
