I was wondering, are there anyone who would be interested in helping me make a J2ME media player? The main feature would be a plugin API which allows you to load new plugins for reading formats and tracks within archives.
I originally wanted to make a lightweight java version of foobar2000, but unfortunately the foobar source is not released T_T so I have no option but to design one from scratch.
I myself would probably not be of much use in the programming area, perhaps a bit in the design part, as I'm a designer. I know basic programming (Asm, C, Lua, PHP), but I still doubt I'd be of much use.
So far I haven't found a java media player that was free, open-source, and had support for adding support for new formats through plugins, or components. The list of supported formats for foobar2000 is impressive, and that's the main thing I'd like to see in this java media player, many formats, MP3 and WMA is just not enough, not to mention those two formats aren't among the best either.
Module formats (e.g. IT, MOD, S3M, XM), lossless formats (e.g. APE, FLAC, TTA, WAV), and lossy formats (e.g. MP3, MPC, OGG) would be favourable formats to begin with, that is, after the player itself is somewhat finished, and there would be time for components.
I'm not expecting much, that anyone would be willing to help, but I still feel very passionate about it, I just want a good player for my mobile phone. I'm sure there are Windows CE and Symbian applications out there that would be close to my desires, but still probably not free and with a plugin API, for many new future formats.
