Re: Suggestion for the UI

All right,

I gave it a shot and I thought it would be best to not work alone, so I created this thread: EarApe: a community-fueled prototype

EarApe: a community-fueled prototype

Hello everyone, As I explained here , I personally think the MM UI is not that great. Just an opinion, don't get angry. So I thought I'd create a prototype for research. It's called EarApe and is based on the Mozilla platform. Ultimately, this prototype shall be presented to the MM dev team as some ...

Re: Suggestion for the UI

Ok, so it's been a while and I forgot to share the results of my experiments. I went with mozilla's application development platform (Notepad + XULRunner) but I quit after two weeks: the prototype I got resembled Foobar2000 it too many aspects. I then tried Foobar for a few other weeks, as well as Z...

Re: Various griefs with MM [with suggestions!]

I wanted to add that Clementine has one-click album art retrieval. I've asked the owners of two album-art sharing websites: albumartexchange.com and album-art.net if they would be interested in some kind of partnership with MM. One didn't answer and the other says that he is already examining severa...

Re: Various griefs with MM [with suggestions!]

Let's settle the matter : ) -If nobody wants my dynamic columns, FINE. Same goes for color... - Lack of swiftliness mustn't be mistaken for control. The global idea behind my remarks is that the MM-experience, though awesome, is not always/globally smooth, imho. If skins can't do what you're looking...

Re: Suggestion for the UI

@lowlander Well as I said, it's just organizing, rather than adding or removing. Everything stays accessible through the menu. In terms of workflow I guess it would be similar to the "bookmark toolbar + tabs" combo in Firefox: you have your items ( bookmarks / functions ) and you open the ones you n...

Re: Various griefs with MM [with suggestions!]

@lowlander "I want to be in control" is hardly an argument, unless you're a Gentoo user. You're right about the bugs. I have tried so many different versions of MM in the last months, though; I can't keep track of what is a recent bug and what isn't anymore. I'll look at the lists at Mantis. Now ( a...

Suggestion for the UI

Hi everyone, The average number of items in a menu and in the settings tree show that MM is a full-featured tool that has grown up a lot. Options are added so you end up with something that is powerful, but not a bliss.The purpose of the following is to end up with a soft that's tidy and feels reall...

Various griefs with MM [with suggestions!]

Hi everyone, for the record, I use MM4 without a skin ( and have used MM3 for a long time ). Here is a list of the things that sometimes make me hate MM almost as much as I love it. UI & Window - Somehow, WinSplit Revolution doesn't work with MM ( or rather, the opposite : ) ). The bug it produces i...

Old mistranslation in the french installer

Hi all,
when you use french at installation,
"Enable full skinning (override Windows System theme)"
has been translated to
"Autoriser les skins complètes (surcharge l'apparence système de Windows)"
when it should be
"Utiliser les thèmes MediaMonkey (au lieu du thème Windows)"
