Default LCD PLugin

For some time I have been searching for a plugin that would give me LCD support for BSplayer.
I only found people with the same need so I decided to start coding myself.

I have now come to the point that I can say that the plugin is ready for beta testing.

The plugin is designed for HD44780 (20x2 or bigger) compatible displays only.
It will show the current playing title, current movie position and total playtime on the LCD.

There are still some bugs that need to be sorted, but in it's current state it's perfectly useable.

All feedback and sugestions are appreciated.

Enjoy,
Rafke P.

For the moment the plugin is available over here :

Fort,

Thank you for taking an interest, unfortunately this plugin is of no use to you.

This plugin is meant for people with LCD character displays.
A lot of people use their HTPCs as "mediaboxes" under their TV to watch movies. Now when watching a movie fullscreen you can't see how many time has already passed without toggling the fullscreen mode.

Now this plugin aims to do exactly that : show the current playing title and elapsed time on a HD44780 compatible character LCD display connected to the parallel port.

Kind regards,
Rafke P.
