Hey, I’m designing a new audio player that will be using FMOD 4, once it comes out of course. I wanted to ask a favor of you all to give me some name recommendations, since I’ve changed the GUI I wanted to change the name, something that sounds good! Currently, I have titled it as ePlayer, which is not going to be its final name, it was just something that quickly thought of. Thanks for the help!
Here’s a link to the first build, just the GUI, so that you can see what the new GUI looks like:

Hey, very nice.
But, what’s wrong with Dynamic Media Player? or ePlayer at that?
Oh, here’s a good name for it: Du hast mich spieluhr 😆 just kidding.
How about: MOD Core
or maybe: Tonic Player (you can call it ‘TP’ for short )
I do have one question though. How did you create your graphics.
My media player needs a makeover, but I can’t make anything good.
(I lack certain required graphical skills)
Well, good luck,
nice job so far
P.S. My Createtivity is just as bad as my drwaing! (and spelling)

[size=150:11y3qngp][b:11y3qngp]McFly Media Player[/b:11y3qngp][/size:11y3qngp]
[size=75:11y3qngp][i:11y3qngp]The media player that is so advanced they haven’t written the API for it yet.[/i:11y3qngp][/size:11y3qngp]
– Plays the top ten hits from next year!
– Support for MP6 files and WM18!
– Downloads and plays the songs you want before you know you want them!
Great Scott! That API would require at least [b:363jdnfm]one point twenty one jigawatts[/b:363jdnfm] of coding power to bring it into existence! It’s lucky Firelight Technologies is running dual-delorean development systems overclocked to 88 mebibits per googolbyte!
If they make skins, we will come. 😀
Hehe, yeah, maybe I’ll just leave it at ePlayer, I’m not sure, but I wanted to change the name, the old name, Dynamic Media Player, was too long and it didnt really sound very catchy.
Nci: to tell you the truth the only program that I’ve used for graphics has been Microsoft Paint hehe, just a few effects from Microsoft Photo editor, thats basically it.
Heh, yeah, a media player spoofed off of Back to the future. I could make a skin that looks like a Delorean! lol
Anyways, thanks for the input!
yeah well, i know I simply need to download the visual basic runtime files for that to fix. Though a lot of people don’t know that or are just to lazy to do that.
I think it would be better to include that file in the main directory.
The GUI looks nice. I like the way the playlist, equilizer and those buttons the are in the player. Those gray edges though could use some work in my opinion.
As for the name, I think ePlayer is fine. I don’t think I will be able to help you with a better name, I can’t even find a good name for my own player:P

Yeah, I was really impressed with myself when I built those eq and playlist forms in. I really hadn’t wanted to use subclassing at first because of the problems with subclassing and the VB IDE, but it was the only real way that I could move multiple forms together without delay. I think it was worth it since it makes my program look more professional hehe. The skinning system is going to be revamped once I have all of the functionality that I want, so the end user will be able to fully customize the interface, getting rid of that gray stuff.
