    For the mean time can I still use this version, even do it doesn't have all the new features , on my pre with 2.1?
    The homebrew version won't work on webOS 2.0 or later. The webOS media indexer (used to access the music library) is very different in webOS 2.x vs. webOS 1.x.

    Do you mean you can't buy any paid apps?

    Can someone provide this app's "App ID" for me?

    I can't find it in Internalz, after looking through the list a few times, I'm starting to get a headache.

    The app id of the homebrew version is com.palm.app.mprbeta. You can make any changes you want on your device, but please don't distribute those changes publicly.

    Thank you. Great work btw. The reason I am removing the splash screen is because I like my device to be as generic as possible.

    That's fine. I actually intended to dynamically change the splash background based upon the app's wallpaper, but there's a bug in webOS 2.0 that prevents me from doing it. Once webOS 2.1 is propogated to all existing 2.0 devices, I'll see if the bug is fixed and try to implement that feature (in the app catalog version of course).

    Thats right, I can only download free apps from the app catalog which I hate because there are so many apps I want and can't get.

    Or my only route is to wait for paypal support.

    I have the samle problem here in Switzerland and it drives me nuts, since I really would like to buy Remix...:-(

    On another note: I really like the new Auto-Playlists, but one thing that bugs me is, that a lot of sounds from my installed games get also included in those playlists. Is there any way to exclude those sounds and only have the songs?

    Hopefully HP starts offering paid apps to more countries/regions in the world.

    I haven't come across any games that have sounds visible to the webOS media library. It's up to the game developers to make sure they don't store their sounds on the /media/internal partition in a visible folder. I'm not sure why they would ever do that. Which game is doing this?

    No, there's not going to be a way for me exclude these types of sounds if certain game developers are doing this. My app gets a list of all audio found by the webOS media indexer. It doesn't know the difference between a song and a game sound. The only audio files on /media/internal that are ignored are ones marked as ringtones and ones stored in hidden folders (beginning with a period).

    It's possible they want to make it easy for users to change the sounds used in the game, or to theme them somehow.

    Maybe you could have an option to have the auto-playlist and shuffle features ignore files with a duration of less than 10 seconds or 30 seconds or something? I've seen that option in PC-based media players.

    If a game developer wants to store audio files on /media/internal for whatever reason, they should be storing them in a hidden folder (starting with a period). That way all music apps (not just mine) will ignore those files. Not doing that is irresponsible. I'd love to see an example of one of these games so I can ask the developer what they were thinking!

    Even if I took the time to implement some type of duration filtering like you're suggesting, that doesn't help other webOS users who don't use my app. The fact is most webOS users probably use the built-in music app and thus would still have this issue.

    Therefore it's not my app that should be "fixed", it's the games/apps storing audio files on /media/internal in visible folders that need to be fixed. I also store audio files on /media/internal for my karaoke feature but I do so in a hidden folder so the karaoke sessions do not show up in the music library.

    Judged by the filenames (which also show in the song listing) it must be a car racing game. Since I had several installed, I'm not really sure if which one, but my guess is Need for Speed Undercover. Most of the filenames start with something like "sfx_game_collision_front...". Guess I'll have to hunt those files down and delete them one by one...:-(

    They're probably all stored within the same folder. I'd browse the folders found on /media/internal and find the one storing the files and delete the whole thing (assuming you don't use the game anymore of course).

    I doubt it's Need for Speed Undercover because I used to have that game and I don't remember ever having this issue. Unless they started storing the audio files on /media/internal in a later update (after I deleted the app).

    Forgive me if this has already been asked... For those of us with a hacked 2.1.0 on a Pre (masked as 1.4.5) can you create a 2.x lite version that claims to be for 1.4.5? Otherwise, we don't see it in the store. Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Ah! Looking forward to it!

    Thanks for the tip. Is there an app that lets me do this directly from my phone (like internalz on 1.4.5) or do I have to connetct to the computer to delete the folder?

    Internalz will allow you to delete files on your device; however previously there were reports that audio files deleted with Internalz would still show up in the music apps because the webOS media indexer never knew about the deletions. I'm not sure if that's still an issue, but if your goal is to remove the audio files from being listed in my app, it's probably safer to delete the files/folder on your computer.
