Ouch! Good you found it.

(Off-topic: Did you ever try to put an animated image on a page? I've tried it but it kept rebooting on me.)

(not tested but I'm not surprised that it doesn't work, even a @@variable defined in a page doesn't work in another !)

I finally modified the playback controls, they now appears on top left corner of the screen, like an overlay, it looks better.

I will put online a new video preview tomorrow or the day after, then i will release the prerelease at the end of the week.

For now, the design is very simple, perhaps not very sexy... Then I will need your opinions to improve the mod (glossy glossy effect ?) and after that it will be the final (before next  ;)) release.

Actually, it's 65.417% finished !  ;D

New video preview added : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRnSDGYQSEA

As you can see, some changes have been made. I have to move some items in the playback screen (title and timer), and maybe change the color of selected option (not very readable depending on the bg).

Everything is almost ready (exceptiing the visual kb to be skinned later), a few small adjustments to make...

I will put online the prerelease in 1-2 day(s).

There's still some "problems" : vertical and horizontal scrolling in main screen aren't always well displayed.

Screens in the preview (from what I remember !) : main screen, music in list mode and music playback, photos in thumbnail mode and slideshow, videos in thumbnail mode and movie playback.

Prerelease available (english) : http://wdtv.free.fr/dl/minimalistic%20%5b1.02.11%5d/

Known problems and to be improved for final version :

- vertical and horizontal scrollings in the main screen aren't always smooth (I tried to play with 'duration' parameter in xml file, without success, i think gfx are too big)
- difficult to know which usb device is selected when ejecting because there's no select frame
- for the same reason, difficult to know which usb device is selected when media library is OFF
- some screens aren't very sexy (list mode,...) : need to be modified in next release (glossy effect ?)
- titlebar in video/photo playback don't look nice when the bg isn't full screen or depending on the colors in bg => will be replaced by something not transparent
- option icons aren't well readable depending on the bg => will be modified (for example, orange color when selected)
- virtual keyboard not yet skinned

Thx in advance for your opinions...

You did a great job lilibabe! Thank you so much for your OSD! It is amazing as it is now and will be perfect once the issues you noted are corrected! Am sure that you will come up with more improvements that I never considered though!

works fine with the laurentG app.    I think the main text could actually be a little smaller.  It seems just too big, my GF walked past it and made a joke that I must have eyesight problems.  Still I love the style. Very Zune HD

Poor girls, they have little choice !  :)

My gf wondered why I do all that and what it is the purpose... all she wants is to see a movie !

I often hear, when powering on the WDTV, "you've still changed the UI ?"  ::)

love the look of this. it is the only thing on my pendrive and for some reason when watching movie i get to end with credits and hit back button and the screen goes back, but my movie keeps playing.  this happened with 2 different ones, one iso and one avi.  on the first one i actually turned off the wdtv and could still hear the sound coming through my speakers!!  how? i have no idea.  anyway, i had to reboot to get movie to stop.  if it goes to the end of the movie/file it won't let you play anything else, it says unable to load file. i guess it thinks the movie is still playing.  very weird.
