It was participated in the Neo Spring Coding Compo 2008 (PSP Applications).

Compatibility

It works the best on the Slim PSP.

Known issues On Phat PSP the images "jump" when the application sets the CPU Speed. Unsure why the bug is not present on the Slim.

Changelog

v2.5

  • It saves the cover art images loaded from ID3 Tags to the covers folder for faster loading. So it needs a very long time (~2s for one mp3) to load at the first time, but then it is very fast (1/2 s for one mp3).
  • Removed known bugs.

v2.0

  • Compatible with Slim and Fat.
  • Now read the IDv3 tags.
  • Added pause function.
  • Able to load the images contained in the labels and also from the covers folder (as described in version 1.0)
  • Fixed the bug due to the non-existence of images.
  • Added "Stop" function.
  • Now with continuous playback.
  • Now the .mp3 files are loaded from ms0:/MUSIC.
  • Plays at 69 MHz.
