Windows 8 Media Player Concept by zainadeel Windows 8 Media Player Concept by zainadeel
picture speaks for itself..

but there is something i want to point out.
My idea is that when you search the startmenu for a song.. and click it..

the startmenu wont close. It will Transform into the Media Player.. and slide over the Media player icon on the superbar. and also the album art will replace the white background with a Expand effect...
this will all happen under 1 second at 60 frames per second. so the animation will be fluid and fast.. and the media player window can be dragged anywhere and stretched like now.

same with startmenu.

Nice concept, but don't ever hope that WMP will be simple and doesn't have advanced features... Still, you can hope that somebody will make it (not me as IDK how) ;)

actually this is the minimised version of WMP when we will mouseover the icon.

The actual player will stay hidden unless watching a video or doing something advanced :)

Ok :) But I think you can make it as a skin or modify small view ([link] , it's from Win 7 beta, but if you use Win 7, you should have seen it). And BTW, if it's only a mouseover picture, why does it have buttons? (You couldn't click them if you have to mouseover taskbar button to see that window at all...)

Awesome! But how would searching for "Mr. Brightside" come up with all those (some unrelated) Killers songs?

amm.. thats weird.
you have windows 7 right?

maybe its because i have all my music collection indexed for fast searching. Maybe indexing allows for this.

Very good.

One question, did you try the AIMP 2 or 3?
And another one, where I can get that nice bg?

Greetings.

That could be a pretty awesome feature :)
Perhaps someone could make it as an 3rd party application, i would use it for sure.

Ooo, I really wish this happens. There must be some sort of workaround to get this to work. PLEASE submit this to an MS dev person to get it in. Comment on WinDev blogs or MSDN or something.

Well, make sure to do it soon. I had mocked up something for WMP last year and sent it to the dev team during the beta phase for Win7. Steven Sinofsky sent me an email saying that it was too late to incorporate anything. This is a great innovation and it'd be shame not to see it out to fruition. Good luck! :)

I've sent you a note. Also, makes sure to send all your ideas together (since they all tie into the jumplist = program idea).

yes.. just need to refine it more and see how far i can take it for different applications so its something that can be scaled everywhere so its unified.. thanks alot for the NOTE :)

Nice, but is there going to be a main window for Media Player? And that would be the compact version? Or is that it?
Reply
:iconzainadeel:
zainadeel Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2011  Hobbyist Interface Designer
this is not the main window..
nor is this the compact version..
this is the MOUSE OVER view + the compact version..

so there is not compact version

either this.. or the MAIN big Window..
which can be activated with a button i forgot to add here..

and this is the window just like livepreview.. but instead of it having just 3controls and the miniwindow being something else.. this is combined and still can be dragged anywhere..

Wow, that was complicated. :P Well, your design. :P How do you make mockups? :/ Do you take a screenshot and then copy and paste parts to make different components or something?
