PAW - MP3 Player

The next version of PAW (0.56) will feature a MP3 player.

PAW - MP3 Player

The information used by the player is extracted from the Android device's media database. The coverart will be presented by using the jCoverflip jQuery plugin.
For playback the very lightweight (9k) Flash MP3 Player is used.

For those of you who want to try a preview of the player or/and want to have a look at the xhtml source you'll find the download at the end of the post.
Just extract the ZIP file to the root of your SDCard (/sdcard). After that you should find a new entry MP3 Player in the Media menu.

Have fun...

APK Upload and Installation

After reading this post at XDA Developers I would like to show how APK installation can easily be done with PAW Server without the need of an Internet connection.

PAW Content Sharing - Send to Android

With the new Content Sharing functions this is very easy and can be done in four simple steps:
  1. Go to the System > Share Content menu entry.
  2. Select the APK file for upload.
  3. Select the Use Open URI radio button.
  4. Press the Send Data button.
Now the installation process should start automatically on your Android Device :)

Note: The standard file upload size is 2 MB. This can be changed in the server settings to any size.
