Tips, tricks and modification by Chris Benjaminsen.

Hi there good people of modaco.

Ok this is my first post on this forum, sorry for not posting these tips and tricks before. But I?ve bean kind of busy the last 2 weeks.

Okay the boring stuff first.

About 3 weeks ago my colleagues and I got a smart phone each as a bonus (Wahoo) anyway we work with development of internet applications so we are quite used to customising different systems. And therefore most of us had made our own home screens before we ever used the phone to make a call. This post is a collection of tips and tricks we have found (maybe found again haven?t read the entire forum).

It's not the entire collection, just the stuff we could remember off the top of our heads at 5am in the morning.

Anyway lets get it on!

Extensive information about the current status of the phone.

Can be found by doing the following.

1 ? Start all Explorer.

2 ? Select SmartPhone (or what ever you called your phone)

3 ? Select menu >> 1 File >> 5 Properties

Now you have an menu item called Info containing 3 items

1 Power

2 Memory

3 General

General is most interesting as it displays the phones current IP (yep the phone have an IP and can be pinged, now who writes the web server?)

Play list in media player.

As some of you have noticed the media player on the phone does NOT have a play list function! This is extremely irritating as the media player then starts movie files when you use it as an mp3 player.

The media player does not support normal play lists, but what I discovered is that it support ordinary .asx files (these files are used for streaming video). and as you might have guessed you are able to make multiple entries in an asx file, and therefore you can use these as an play list.

The asx syntax is quite easy, and does basically use a xml syntax.

Example:

<asx version="3">


<entry><ref href = "mymusicnr1.wma"/></entry>


<entry><ref href = "mymusicnr2.wma"/></entry>


</asx>
In this example the music files has to be located in the same dir as the .asx file, but you can use direct paths. To use the play list all you have to do is locate the file in your ALL-explorer or Internet explore, and run it. Then in the menu item Select you only have the files written in the play list. Start menu folders. To make the phones start menu easy to navigate it?s a good idea to create folders for your shortcuts, this is done easily by opening the folder IPSMWindowsStart Menu on your phone and just create the folders you want. And thereafter move the shortcuts around as you want. In the folder IPSMWindowsStart Menu you can also delete the shortcuts you do not want. Own shortcuts. Shortcuts can be used in the start menu, or on the homescreen using the shortcut plugin.
    • 1 - Locate the file or application using your windows explorer. 2 - Right click on the file and select Create Shortcut. 3 - Rename the Shortcut to something that makes sense.
      • To use this in your startmenu all you need to do is copy the shortcut to the IPSMWindowsStart Menu folder. To use this on your homescreen you need to use the shortcut object described below.
Small customised icons. One of the things I really wanted when I god the phone was an easy to navigate and simple look on my home screen. And to achieve this I needed a small icon bar, instead of the large icon bar. Sadly the customised icon bar does not support the icon-size property. The last item bar gives me that opportunity but I did only want 3 icons and in a specific order. The solution was the shortcut object {A1536C57-6AC2-4c31-9542-B144B0E9D076} here you are able to make custom links. This plug in makes a 16x16px icon if there is a text assigned to it and the height is set to 20. I for once did not want any text besides the icon. Solution one. The object which is used by the shortcut object support an icon property where you assign the number if the icon you want, sadly after trying around 1000 numbers I only found a few 16x16px icons 16x16px icon list:
    • 0 = Internet explorer. 61 = Paper 62 = Soccer ball 63 = Theatre masks 64 = Red Soccer and yellow arrow 65 = Paper and smiley bubble 66 = Image and music node 71 = Red paper 72 = Red Soccer ball 73 = Weather icon (Cloud with sun behind) 74 = Car 75 = Pice of paper 3z folded 82 = Home with ball behind (internet explorer home) 92 = Spanner 101 = Brown MSN (2 buddies) 102 = 2 curved arrows (hotsync)
Example:
<plugin clsid="{A1536C57-6AC2-4c31-9542-B144B0E9D076}" name="orangeh" height="36">


	<format state="selected" bgcolor="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHT"/>


	<shortcut icon="0" action="http://smartphone.orange.dk"/>


	<shortcut icon="65" action="IPSMWindowsStart MenuContacts.lnk"/>


</plugin>
Solution two. This solution I like the best. As mentioned the shortcut plugin will use a 16x16px large icon if there is some text assigned to the icon. So by putting the ASCII letter ALT + 255 in the you get a small icon. The selection color will look a little strange but it?s a small price to pay for a better home screen. Example:
<plugin clsid="{A1536C57-6AC2-4c31-9542-B144B0E9D076}" name="myicons" height="20" x="2" group="ieo">  


	<format state="selected" bgcolor="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHT"/>  


	<background b-border-width="0"/>  


	<shortcut width="18" action="IPSMWindowsStart MenuWMPlayer.lnk">  


  <text> </text>  


	</shortcut>  


	<shortcut width="18" action="IPSMWindowsStart MenuInternet Explorer.lnk">  


  <text> </text>  


	</shortcut>  


	<shortcut width="18" action="IPSMWindowsStart MenuInbox.lnk">  


  <text> </text>  


	</shortcut>  


</plugin>
Media player skinning: Simple skinning: Replacing the files disabled.gif, pushed.gif and wmplayer.gif in the windows directory can change the graphical appearance. This is done to make the media skin fit into your own home screen and color scheme design. I?ve made a few simple skins just for you! (click to download) mediaplayer-cleargreen.gifmediaplayer-green.gifmediaplayer-pink.gifmediaplayer-yellow.gifmediapleyer-blue.gifmedieplayer-red.gif Advanced skinning: Ohh yeah baby! What all your people have wanted is a larger screen resolution, sadly I cannot give you full screen (yet, working on it) but I can give you a little step in the right direction! I give you in harmony with DFeKT (our local Über-gfx guy) the advanced media player skin witch give a screen resolution on your movies on 176x132px. Just click the image to download mediaplayer-advanced.gif I will not write how this is done, as I would just be repeating information that can be found here http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default....ml/wmpcesdk.asp NOTE that all changes to the media player will be overwritten when you reboot the telephone, so it?s a god idea to have a copy of your media player skin on your storage card in order to restore while your on the run. Best video format. A lot about the media format has been posted in here, and I must say I disagree on most configurations. I have tried every configuration posted, and all of them causes large amounts of lagging on the phone. So I did my own research converting around 150 times before I had a quality I liked and had a minimum of lagging, within the confines of the limited storage space on most phones. First of all I use windows media converter witch can be downloaded here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsme...wm7/encoder.asp Settings:
    • Maximum bit rate: 70kB Audio: Codec: Windows media audio V8 Format: 20kbps, 22kHz, mono (use 8kbps, 11kHz, mono if there is no or little music in the file) Video Windows Media MPEG-4 Video V3 176 x 132 Frame rate: 8 Key frame interval: 2 Buffer size: Default (3)
      • As you might notice I do not use a windows media video codec, because a lot of tests have shown that it lags more then the MPEG4 format. Another thing is the screen resolution; you might notice its larger then the standard. Scroll up and find media player skinning for the explanation. If you have a better setting for converting let me know I will be happy to know! Example of this encoding can be downloaded here

Quality work Chris and the rest of Q-Rious.

Just a quick note, liked your compression set-up for vid on the phone, wasn't that dissimilar to my own settings bar the codecs used. I tried yur settings and the ones I had been using, yours still came out better but found a vast improvement on the old settings I was using just because of the screen size increase, so in general good job all round, or as the barley pickers would say 'proper job'. :D

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your very long, very useful post!

A couple of questions about encoding video clips:

1) I used windows media converter, but I dont see how you can set the Maximum bit rate - how do I set this?

2) I get a sliding scale from 0 to 100 with "smoother motion" at 0 and "clearer images" at 100. Where do I set this?

3) I converted a 23 minute video clip of Phoenix nights and got it down to 24MB. Any ideas how I can make this even smaller?

Thanks for any help,

Andrew

Sweet Jesus of Nazareth! I'd be really interested in this - any chance of sharing that when you've reduced the size a bit?

:D

Great post Chris. I now have a screen that looks lovely - the plug-ins work a treat.

Can you expand a bit on the asx files as a WMP playlist? I'm not sure if i should be trying to edit a .asx file that already exists somewhere, or whether I should be trying to create a new one. And where do i put the .asx file? I'm using a storage card.

Thanks for any help.

Hi there Andrew, just finished an article about converting video to the smartphone. Gives you all the anwsers.

Execpt the size matter, anyway when you change the bitrate the size of the file changes, at 70k as i prefere you shuld be able to store arround 30min of video in 176x132 on 15mb space :D

are you looking through a PC?? or all-explorer? coz if you are doing it through usbcradle then you might need to fo to folder settings (PC Windows) and make sure it shows hidden files and system files. that should unhide them.

Just tried the media player skin. Works great I love the extra resolution. The only thing to resolve now is how to make it stay between reboots. Maybe someone could come up with script to copy it back to the windows directory on startup. Could not be a new application as that needs signing. Anyone got any ideas how to do it using built it apps.

I tried copying it using All-Explorer but it cant do it. It wont manually let me delete the default .skn file in Windows/ This means that if I was out and my phone locked then I wouldn't be able to watch a film at the larger size. Anyone know how to copy these files?

Cheers,

Andrew

I have managed to create .ASX file and it works a treat on my PC, had no time to test on spv yet, but think should work.

I was wondering if there's a way to specify in an .ASX file position of track where it should start playing. I.e. I want to put a live set on a memcard and create, say, 7 .ASX files each linking to a different start time in track.

That would in effect split it into tracks 'virtually', without a need to split the files into 7 files... you know what i mean

This could be a solution to long films, if possible to do......
