RNOInfoScreen: Music Player Front-End And Info Screen





RNOInfoScreen: Works as a front-end to various music and media players bydisplaying the "now playing" information with cover art images, and offers basic media control options for the user (play, pause, next, etc.).

Why? Because I listen to music on my MorphOS computers a lot and I wanted to have a fullscreen application to display the "now playing" information when I'm not otherwise utilising the computer screen.

I find myself, quite often, wondering what's currently playing when I listen to large random playlists, and my application offers this feature in an easy-to-view way, even from some distance away, so I don't have to drag my ass back to my computer.

Why not make it a full-blown player too? Because I'm not trying to re-invent the wheel. Everyone has their own favourite music players an characteristics
for different needs, this program just gives you an alternative way to use them.

Why has it such a generic name? This way I leave my options open, in case I expand it to display more than just music related information in the future.
