Hi Andreas,

I got your last email too, strange.

Hi all,
I have managed in the last days to make CDPlayer work with libcdio and
friends, at least in a rudimentary manner.
Currently I encounter different problems:
- interrupted data streams, i.e. the player stops playing after a couple
of minutes
- the display being not in sync with the actual playing
- most probably others I have not come across, yet

Why do I port this here? Mainly for two reasons:

1. I am using the Cnthiune output module system. This way I do not have
to duplicate this code. CDPlayer simply loads the *.output modules from
Cynthiune's bundle folder and uses them.

This is cool Since we are "fixing" those modules, I hope you can benefit of those and their portability. The drawback is that they are still a bit rudimentary.

2. For the time being, I at least will not try to integrate that into
Cynthiune. Mainly, because I have no time, but I am also lacking a good
idea of how to integrate that into Cynthiune's GUI.
I also need CDPlayer's services (for Burn and an auto-mounting/-playing
helper I have written). So, replacing CDPlayer by Cynthiune would be too
much effort for me.
I think it is perfectly fine to have the two application separate for the time being. This allows us to refine Cynthiune to be more mature independently. I would not like to make Cynthiune a "monstrum" which burns cd's and other things. Although in the future thinking about burning MP3's and ripping Sharing code and finding a way to integrate them in the future with services or playlists without merging the applications might make sense though.

If someone wants to have a look, you find it on <> (project gsburn)
in the CVS.
Downloading now.
As noted, it is still a way from being ready for release, but may serve
as proof of concept.

Thanks for your attention.

Thanks for your work.
