Media - Android Getting Rfid - Object-based Media

Ive read a recent post on this media player that uses physical objects to control media playback. It is based on radio frequency identification (rfid) that triggers various phone interactions when in the range of a wireless tag embedded inside a physical object.

Below is the cool video link:

Subsonic Free Web Based Media Stream App i couldn't believe that i did a search of this forum and didn't find a single thread dedicated to subsonic. Subsonic is a multi-platform (windows, mac, linux, etc. ), Open-source media streamer for playing music across a lan or the internet. It supports many features (check it out for yourself), but the most exciting for android users was the introduction of an android app with subsonic 3. 8 beta 1 released on october 2nd, 2009.

Sindre mehus (subsonic's developer) just released the final version of subsonic 3. 9 on february 12, 2010 along with a new version of the android client. And it just happens to have fixed almost all of the problems that i experienced on earlier versions.

For example, i have the latest version of subsonic installed as a java web application on a tomcat install on a windows home server box at home. Today while i was driving in my car, i launched the subsonic app on my nexus one and browsed to the ziggy stardust album in flac format on my whs at home. I played the album on the n1 subsonic client and subsonic at home transcoded the flac to 192 kbps mp3 (this is totally customizable for most every file format) which began playing on my n1 in about 10 seconds from the time i hit play.

This is over a 3g connection. The rest of the album, which had already been added to the playlist, quietly downloaded in the background which resulted in an interruption-free listening experience for the duration of my trip home. An awesome experience - one that i have been waiting a long time for. For someone who has lots of music in various formats and wants to play it streaming on-demand over 3g using your android device, subsonic is your answer.

Media - Sound Not Syncing After Conversion / Media Player For Wmv Video Files

Anyone know of a media player for wmv video files? I downloaded a video file (wmv) and converted it to mp4. The file played in the video player (froyo 2. 2), the only problem was the sound was delayed by 2 to 4 seconds behind the video.

Media - Using Droid X In Car

I am getting my droid x on thursday, and planning on buying the car dock, but i am not sure how to get the music from the phone to my car stereo. I have no luck with fm transmitters in my area, too few open channels, and no cassette tape to do that adapter. Does anyone have recommendations for car stereos i could buy that would connect to the droid x easily? Any that can do it wirelessly?

Media And 1013 Network Use

I've searched the forums, and there are no similar topics, so thought i'd ask!My battery seems to drain quick sometimes, so i checked spare parts to see if i could see anything suspicious. When i checked earlier, "media" was taking up the full bar of my network use. I'm not entirely sure what this media may be, as i haven't even used or looked at any media. I killed all the running/background tasks and checked again. Now it shows "1013" taking up all of the bar, followed by media, which at a rough guess would be 30%, which is then followed by "1010".

Could anyone say what media this might be? And what this 1013 is? It's been at the top of the list a few times that i have checked - and the entire bar being blue.

Tablet For Media, Viewing Videos

I'm looking for a tablet primarily for media, viewing videos, slowing off pictures, and reading websites, youtube, etc. The ability to read pdfs would be nice also. I'll probably move files to this using a minimicrowhatever sd card so the ability to accept 16/32 or larger would be great. I'd really like to avoid having to root the device unless i really have to.

Here is what i want:
• 7-ish inch screen (bigger would be great, but adds to the cost)
• able to play flv videos (i already have a lot of my videos in this format)
• must be fast enough to play videos smoothly
• must have a sd, micro-sd or other flash card expansion slot
• access to the android app store
• g-sensors
• android 2. 2 or better (for flash player)

Nice to have
• wifi
• high res screen
• usb port
• android 3. 0

Don't want:
• having to buy a cellular contract

Don't need (but don't care):
• camera
• web cam

Ok, here is where it gets a little harder, looking to spend $200-300. I can bump that up if the right device is more expensive.

Any recommendations?

Media - Where To Find Awesome Ringtone

I swear i have exhausted sites like zedge, myxer, mobile24, oringz, etc. A good example of what i'm looking for are rcp tones (rcp tones | ringtone design) but theyre not amazing really, and htc - htc e-club ringtones. I don't mind paying if they're awesome. I personally am not into music ringtones as in actual songs from bands etc. Can anyone give me some hints? Is it me or are these types of ringtones lacking?

There is some pretty good free webcam software out there called yawcam (yet another webcam software) i use it on my home pc and can view the streaming video from my samsung moment android phone. Works great!

Now. I use pdanet to teather my phone to my laptop and that works great as well. I want to use the laptop to run a moblie webcam but i cant get the cam to transmit to the web via the lappy and phone.

Media - Need Music Player That Fades Between Tracks

I've been messing about with my g1, and i noticed that i can have multiple music players running at the same time. Now, it's fairly cacophonous, but gave me the thoughts that this would mean that the phone should be capable of fading between tracks (like itunes or other media players do). This sort of thing is great when putting a play list together, so there's not the dead space between songs.

Anyway, does anyone know if there's a player that does it, or if it would be possible to add this functionality to the standard music player?
