Break-away player like 3.5 had

Postby awpti » Sun Feb 22, 2009 3:46 am

Between 3.5 to 3.6, the detachable player seems to have gone away.

This was an awesome feature and really needs to come back. It's irritating having to leave a full browser window open after I've finished setting up my playlist.

In 3.5, I'd start the player, click the Detach Player link and close the main Window.

Sometimes I'm just not in a place where downloading/installing WinAMP or any other external media player is a viable alternative.

What's the chances of that happening? Is it there and hidden?

It's possible, but it wouldn't work like the previous version. Since the previous player had full playlist support, and (I think) JWPlayer (the new web player) doesn't, it would have to just break out the frame as it is with text links as the playlist and the thin player at the top. It's totally possible though.

That would actually be perfect.

If I knew a stitch of Java, I'd probably just do it myself and submit a patch, but all I know is PHP. :>
