Pocket player 3 - Media player - awesome today plugin

So, I've spent the last 2-3 days looking for a media player that has a good today plugin.. HTC home spoiled me in that regard, but I don't use it anymore, and it seems as though nobody has been able to extract just the media tab from it (correct me if I'm wrong and I'll save some money!!)

The fruits of my search? I stumbled on to this little gem today.

http://www.conduits.com/products/player/default.asp


So far, I really dig it. It's got a nice feel to it, very userfriendly, skinnable, etc... Best of all, it's got an awesome today plugin, and it's not super memory hungry (According to the HTC memory manager, it takes about 3-5% of your available memory)...


Here are some screen shots:




From what I've found so far, here are some pros and cons:

Pros:
Today plugin. This trumps any today plugin I've found for WMP or HTC Audio (feel free to correct me if there's a good one)

I love the directory structure.. very simple navigation of your music.

Bluetooth hasn't skipped or paused once... WMP skips incessantly for me.

Fairly easy on the memory.


Cons:

It's not free!

For some reason, can't minimize by using End key or Ok key, like most programs (this was working. I might have messed it up with the WMP plugin)

Task manager doesn't fully close program because of "alert" screen. (I'm sure this can be disabled)

Small buttons make one handed operation hard (only really should be a major issue on first setup.. IE shuffle/repeat buttons)



To set up Bluetooth AVRCP functionality you need an easy mod... Copy the attached plugin (just the DLL, unzip it first!!!) into the root folder of PP3, and then do the following:

1. Click menu/more/options, then navigate to the plugins directory.

2. Click "conduits WM plugin adapter" and then click configure on the pop-up menu

3. under load WMP plugins, make sure there's a check in the box labeled "Play/pause workaround" under each of the headings.

4. Click ok, exit PP3 and restart, and your bluetooth controls should work flawlessly.

(thanks to the XDA-wiki for this solution)

Re: Pocket player 3 - Media player - awesome today plugin

this seems like a real winner.. how does it handle video for you? maybe a replacement for TCPMP?

It does fine with WMV files, but I can't seem to find any codec support.

I'm emailing their support to find out if there's any way to get divx working.

Looks fantastic!

How's the video playback quality? I could use a new media player...

Re: Pocket player 3 - Media player - awesome today plugin

Got an email back from their tech support.. They don't currently support any of the major video codecs (which is weird, because they have a couple audio codecs i've never heard of), but according to the girl who emailed me, they plan to release codec support in a future version.

In short, it's a great audio player, but it's lacking in video support.

Re: Pocket player 3 - Media player - awesome today plugin

I think I'll hold off until they fix video support. I might work on making a vista skin in the meantime... lol

Thanks!

I basically feel the same way... I'm not paying 20 bucks for it given the lack of video support.

Re: Pocket player 3 - Media player - awesome today plugin

I have been using Conduits Pocket Player since like June and it is far and away the best media player IMO. I dont watch much video so I can speak to that but for audio the EQ is awesome and the features are great.

Nice player, seems to be better than Pocket Music which i use.

Does the today plug actually work, on PM you click it and it just started the player program and doesnt just start playing music?
