Toshiba Folio Media Player
Recently I got my hands on a ROM coming from the Toshiba Folio Android tablet. Of course I wanted to checkout the applications that are coming with the device.
Only impressive thing I found is the Toshiba Media Player. It provides access to music, videos, photos, podcasts on your SD-card and as well access to your media home server (if you know how to set it up.
The integrated music player updates your songs automatically with the album covers and its quite successful with finding the correct pictures.
You scroll through artists, albums, songs and create your playlists. Just the things that all other media players offer as well.
I found no possibility to import playlists
your music has to be all in the same folder on your
SD card, no subfolders possible.
Of course there is a widget for your homescreen:
The video player part scans your SDcard for exisiting videos and movies and shows them in a list with a small thumbnail. The quality of the replay is ok, but nothing special. Couldn’t test if it support 1080p, as I have no such videos.
Picture viewer / slide show
The slide show doesn’t have many features, basically the only thing you can change is the speed, transitions are selected automatically.
The podcasts needs to be setup from your PC/Mac. I didn’t try this, as I am not a podcast fan.
Home Media Server
Anyway, you can download the player from my download page and
try it by yourself. Just copy the file to your SD-card and install it from there.
