Hi guys, this is my first article/tutorial on the forums. We are going to build a FULLY functional mediaplayer, and we are going to do it using Delphi (object pascal code) Some of you might be thinking "oh man this is soo hard" well the fact is that there's no easier programming language than Delphi's. With it you can do everything and no need for lots of lines of coding. OK anyways....let's get into the point. So what are the features of our mediaplayer?
1 - Ability to play audio files (almost any extension)
2 - Save playlists.
3 - Open playlists.
4 - Time displaying and many others.
Uhh...well I was thinking in posting the whole thing here but that will take a lot of space and it will just make it annoying, so instead just go here:
There's the complete article, step by step. Easy as a cake
Just to point out a few more things, I am currently working on new features for the mediaplayer. So we don't have to use winamp or mediaplayer classic anymore. You can use you OWN! mediaplayer, named as you want, it's yours.
Features coming on the next release:
1 - Separate window to play videos
2 - Transparency on the windows (like winamp)
3 - Scale on your windows.
4 - Display filename, more complex and professional way of doing it.
5 - ID3 Tag information (also for .wmv and .asf and .ogg files)
6 - Fully skin supported (it's going to have it's own skin engine)
7 - Live stream support (audio and video)
8 - A small client with it
(in case you want to say something to the people watching your stream
9 - And many many more......
Please tell me what do you think of the current tutorial and your ideas to include on the next release. All the feeback will be greetly appreciated. Thanks and have fun with it!.
