 New OSD
  04.05.05 11:00 by 0R0B0R0S
Bravo! for the new version. It really does seem to run a lot more smoother.

I must say however that the newer OSD is usable (contrary to what many other users have been saying) but they are difficult to use because the slides are so small, and I especially appreciated the larger volume slide on the side.

I'll be looking out for your new version, and see how you work out this problem for many users!

Have you thought about the possibilty of creating implementing ASX creation, with the possibility of playing parts of a video (setting the start and stop points)?
Just an idea!
