    TouchRadio - QT5-based UI

    I hope that the original author (jf02) won't mind me posting this here - but I thought it might interest a few here.
    It is a portable UI for touch screens - aimed initially at Raspberry PI users. I know that there are other ways to do it but I thought this looked interesting as the first(?) QT-based interface.

    Hi Paul!

    As I said on the RaspberryPi forum, I'm glad you shared my post on this forum!

    I don't know if there are other similar (QT) interfaces, but I didn't find any that met my requirements.

    You said that there are other ways to do it. What do you mean? You think that I choose a strange way to realize my project? I would be interested in your opinion!

    Thanks

    Hello JF,

    Other ways include:
    SqueezePlay (from Slimdevices/Logitech) that provides the interface on the Squeezebox Touch and is run on a number of other devices with touchscreens - e.g. The O2 Joggler/Openpeak device

    JiveLite I don't think this has a touch interface - but (if I understood correctly) can/will be controlled via HDMI CEC (the TV remote)

    Yes, you are right, other projects exists, and work well. But I wanted an UI designed for touchscreen, which I couldn't find, that's why I started programming Touchradio.

    I don't know JiveLite, I'll have a look at it.

    See also this posting on RPi forum where someone has JiveLite working on RPi with a USB touch screen.
