Re[2]: text files in playlist

To add some more fun to this, the text viewer code could also be used
to view comments and other information in the ID3v2 tags. Maybe we
could also (on the recorder here) make a little picture viewer to view
the embedded pictures? (or pictures on the drive)


JR> Hi folks,

JR> Firstly, *excellent* work on rockbox. I've been reading this list for
JR> the last 6 months or so, and now use rockbox all the time on my Archos.
JR> I would like to get some time to contribute (being an embedded s/w
JR> engineer by trade), but I've been somewhat distracted recently.

JR> Anyhow, a feature I would like to see, and think I might have a go at
JR> implementing, is a text file viewer. I have quite a few text files on
JR> my Archos, each of which gives details on an artist or recording (eg
JR> year, biog, etc). The original firmware allows you to view these text
JR> files, so I could read interesting info about what I'm listening to.

JR> Would anyone else be interested in this functionality?

JR> Regards,
JR> Jon
