ROSA Media Player 1.5: call for translators

Development process of the next release of ROSA Media Player has come to an end. Right now we are polishing some features and will release ROMP 1.5 very soon. What you will see in the ROMP 1.5?

  • First of all, we worked hard on the engine of ROMP and added possibility to use other engines. Thus, we added experimental support of MIDI with the help of wildmidi engine. 
  • Changed graphical theme - now it more corresponds to our requirements. 
  • Completely redesigned a "Settings" dialog. Now it is pretty simple and usable. 
  • Added support of IDv3 (2.4) tags in media files in UTF-8 encoding;
  • And last, but not least: we created a version of ROMP for ... Microsoft Windows! Yes, ROSA Media Player is a cross platform software now. But because it is first our version for Windows  it will be in "beta" status. Also some function of ROMP for GNU/Linux are not implemented  in Windows version now. Among them: screencasts and midi support.

Hi Denis,

Hello! I've added you to Indonesian team!

I've requested a Malay (ms_MY) team.

Any feedback on this software? I haven't tried downloading it yet and I'm waiting for it to go past the beta stage.
