hi folks,

the htc audiomanager didnt work well for me, so i made a skin for the built-in media player based on the new htc touch dialer-pad.

Screens showing Portrait and Landscape Mode as well as Video Playback.

On second thought a blue rectangle - longitudinal would also be good to match the blue background. Also perhaps a faint grey groove would look better than the white line. These skins are not as easy as they look, done some myself in the past so i can appreciate it.

thnx for comments :)

ill during the day redisign the surface a lil, correct and change something in graphics

also landscape is sure in my mind

the slider is a lil uninspired :p - im thinking about different places to put or alternative appearance, and im thinking about how to keep him usable with fingertouch or not :) as ff and rw is also possible by d-pad

about the blue color... its given by design of htc touch, i also removed in that dialpad the gray effect on last-call screen to keep design clear :p

will see how far ill go today :))

Try a basic landscape first - in my experience media player does not change skin automatically in landscape mode except the default skin. You have to goto landscape view first then change the skin. It will only work on auto if you overwrite default skin in \windows. Most skins i have seen do not include landscape view because of this. Prove me wrong if you can :) Just thought i might save you alot of work.
