it is almost here.
it is almost now.
our own Khmer media player.
i am almost done releasing the first alpha version.
with so many media players in the market today, it is almost impossible to beat a product such as Microsoft Media Player which can handle all kind of file formats.
and best of all, it’s free.
first design will not contained Angkor picture or the like.
however, all Khmer folks will recognize that it is targeted for Khmer computer users.
program will be able to run on all computer on this planet. that means, Windows, Linux, Unix, Apple, O/S, BSD. program will be able to play all kind of audio and video formats.
-RealNetwork (RA & RN)
-WMV (might have problem with Microsoft license agreement)
-other formats may be supported later…i have to have permission first
current nasty bug crashes the system if video goes full screen and come back to small screen. this is one nasty bug.
the software will expect to be released first quarter of 2002. remember folks, i’m doing this on my spare time. so, it might be sooner or later. :p
keep your toes cross.
and of course, the software is free.
who interested in alpha test the software?

Are you gonna make a Khmer Windows XP too?:DDecember 26, 2001 at 1:46 am #8930

[b]Are you gonna make a Khmer Windows XP too?:D[/b]
not quite as complex. :p
wellllllll, since i posted several hours ago, i got all the bugs killed!!!
now, it’s moving on to the “real” Khmer graphic interface.
that’s the good news.
the bad news is that i want to add more functionalities.
that means more coding and more debugging…and of course, more time involved.
the new additional objective of the software will
allow user to convert files to any supported format listed on original post.
example, user can convert song on CD to mp3.
convert movie to internet streaming format or larger format such as DiVx, AVI or video CD.
the challenging part for myself is to animate the Khmer graphic.
the little neat thing of the software is that when you launch the program, i want the graphic of nicely dress traditional dancer to say, “jom reap soor”.
i will have to program for all the languages that i can speak but also randomly selected the language each time you launch the program.
so, it won’t be jom reap soor for 50,000 times.
that will be major annoying.
so, at one launch, the dancer might speak Khmer.
next launch might speak French.
next launch might speak Indonesian.
next launch might speak Vietnamese, etc.
because i am not a female, i have to record my voice and change the tone to make it sound like a female.
wait wait wait…ok, this is not a transvesite software!! :p

every single code typed up by me.
this version that i’m developing has no skin capability.
however, it won’t be the same boring rectangular view.
