    OH YES!

    Been waiting for this post since you gave me the teaser in IRC!

    BIG :THX: - even before trying it! (The vid was very convincing).

    Sucks to be in Denmark though :(

    We're always the last ones getting access to gems like Hulu, Spotify etc (if ever).

    Looks fantastic!

    I would love to have integration with Last.fm too (scrobbling for all and streaming for paid subscribers).
    Also collecting and playing local files and adding them to the play queue would be great.
    It would also be nice to be able to add & update playlists at the provider (this would of course be limited to the songs available from each provider).

    Re: Rockstar Beta 1.0 - the ultimate online music plugin (Spotify&Grooveshark)

    Looks really great - But plugin "already" exists!?.

    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...k-plugin-stream-music-version-v0-5-1-a-84678/
    Downloads - mpgrooveshark - Project Hosting on Google Code

    This do use the tinysong API, but i know that Cul8er are working on a Grooveshark API integration - May I suggest you to contact him for further Co-op? -No need for 2 x Grooveshark plugin.

    Have some suggestions for your Interface.

    1)Although the name is Short and easy, the "Headline" does not say much about the "content". What about changing it to a more informative name (Musicstream, Online Music, Soundstreamer etc)

    2)From the Video I can see a LOT of menu navigation - For Non-Mediaportal users, the menu navigation/Layout can be confusing and slow.
    May i suggest creating a split screen for Serch function+ Playlist view? (Maybe take a look at MPGrooveshark plugin).

    But please contact Cul8er regarding the further Rockstar/MPGrooveshark development - Maybe he will join your nice project.

    Re: Rockstar Beta 1.0 - the ultimate online music plugin (Spotify&Grooveshark)

    Hi,

    This look great. Nice work. If this plugin supports Grooveshark and is released I think I will discontinue the MPGrooveshark plugin. No need to have both. MPGrooveshar only uses the tinysong API and this limits thing alot (the positive is that you do not need an account ;) ).

    I'll be happy to create skin files for the x-factor and CLR skins. If you want it included from the day of release, please PM with a link to a "beta" version, othervise I create the skinfiles after the release.

    best regards
    cul8er
