[quote="dingdong":2237pgr2]Direct sound plays mp3s etc and I think, everything that wmp supports. The problem would come when trying to get the TV part of Media Center made in construct
I guess, but you could always use the execute exe option to simply load your proper tuner software anyway... I'm thinking more along the lines of video/music library system with customisable options like background, folder creation and deletion, changable icons and folder graphics... all things that are a royal pain in the ass with Vista Media Center... if you want to do something as simple as change the wallpaper it is a manual job, editing crap, etc.
Personally I don't use a TV tuner... that's what my TV is for... and this project would be more for personal use anyway, though I would obviously release it etc and at least try to add things that other people might find useful even if I don't.
So aside from Direct sound playing music, how would I go with videos using various codecs etc? Like I said, I haven't even really looked into it since I'm playing with other things in Construct right now... just thought I'd throw it out there in case anyone knows or it gives Ash/Rich some ideas.
