It was over eight years ago when I wrote application last time. Since then I had my hands in countless programs, libraries etc. but never wrote something new from scratch. Until recently…

Some time ago Mickey Lauer [presented his module player for iPhone]( I like the idea and started thinking about creating such one for my devices. After some discussions about [Modland music collection]( with him I started coding.

To make things as simple as possible I used Qt framework with Phonon for playing (GStreamer modplug plugin underneath). Current version maybe is not so beauty but it is usable and works fine. Application will be GPL — I used code from Qt demos, read random snippets of code from other programs etc.

Things already implemented:

– playing local modules
– fetching modules from modland archive
– author/song selection
– playing next song on song end (with looping on author)
– seeking
– volume change (will probably get removed from UI)

Things to do:

– error handling (especially fetching related)
– download progressbar
– playing counters
– favorites
– playlists
– small screen usability (stacked windows/tabs)
– and others…
