LastFM and the 605 Wifi?

Hi can anyone tell me if this flash version of Last.FM player works with the 605 WiFi? (Or perhaps the official last FM flash based player works?). http://www.onlinelastfmplayer.com/player/ If so that would be awsome and would seal the deal on me buying one, as I have always wanted a portable last.f...

My Perfect/Dream PMP.

Well even though Archos are far ahead of the game in the PMP world, somehow in my experience they always still manage to disappoint. (Predominantly in the field of add on accessories). They always come up with great hardware - but let themselves and everyone else down by their insistence in both ove...

I just wish they would make a camera attachment for ordinary folks so they could take some nice video if they were abroad on vacation - instead of these sports/perve type 'helmet cams.' Why do the camera models of the Archos line always have to suck the most, have the fewest features and the lowest ...

Well bravo for the source code is all I can say. Now Archos are complying with the GPL most of my objections have evaporated. Most I guess - but not all. Firstly I agree that it should be perfectly possible to allow users to safely run their own applications in a protected user space or 'sandpit' th...

Yeah well I'll take anything that works - given that blanket WiFi coverage isn't the norm ATM anyway - so whether transcoding is done on one of my spare PC's or whether it is done naively on-board the device isn't all that important to me - providing the required networking standards and software su...

Well I hope your optimism bares fruit Charbax. I however will adopt a wait and see approach. I don't see why Archos are so silent on all of these features that you appear to be so excited about. I would be a lot more confident if at least they were giving some clear indications of what their plans a...

Well UPNP is actually more of a standard than is SAMBA. It is also much undervalued and much misunderstood - particularly by users. (Although it is as I said a widely applied industry standard). It is also much more widely supported than is SAMBA, specifically because it offers the possibility of li...

No Java, no Flash/YouTube/Google Video, no UPNP? You know I so much want to support Archos - but these are basic features. I wouldn't mind moving on to a network capable device, as this would be a natural progression from the 4100, 5100, 7100 and 504 players that I have owned. I know you are optimis...

Well you can do all of that on a PSP with TVersity. (Not the touch screen - but Google Video, YouTube and just about any other source too). You don't need location free - and providing the 604/704 is UPNP compatable it should work. Of course as I said, as I don't own a 604 I can't tell if it is UPNP...

Your WebServer seems very unreliable. Do you have any screenshots - and also are you planning on working on support for the 504/604/704 Davinci series?

These already run Linux - although Archos has proved extremely unresponsive about allowing access to the firmware.

Well I don't know about mobile devices - but the PSP does support flash - although I don't know if it is compliant with YouTube etc. However, for you guys that are stuck with the 604 WiFi for now and it's not so very useful WiFi features, you should probably check out TVersity: http://www.tversity.c...

Man 80GB... that sounds like it might be using one of the iPod 1.8 inch drives - which also means that anything bigger is also unlikely. It has better resolution though (full widescreen 800 X 480) but the disk capacity is a let down. Having said which maybe I'm wrong - I mean there's an 80GB 504, is...

Well for me the lack of homebrew support is also a bit of a killer. I'm thinking of getting a PSP exactly because of this. Not because I want to play games - which I am unlikely to ever do (I must be getting old as I never play games any more) but because there is such a vibrant and healthy hombrew ...

Cool, but no longer pocketable, and if it costs as much as a crappy laptop computer, then I think I'd be better off with that. It's pretty certain that it will cost more than a crappy laptop computer. But hey it depends on your needs. People would have said that the AV7100 wasn't transportable. But...

Well on account of the fact that I have just bought a 42 inch High Definition (1900 x 1200) LCD TV, the resolution on the Archos player isn't so hot anymore for my needs. So high definition support would certainly be a boon. It wouldn't take much. I mean the hardware that Archos are using now is alr...

Well I just hope Archos doesn't do as it often does and disappoint. My predictions, going on past experience, is that it will either have a huge screen, but poor resolution/image quality, will have good features, but a sucky/tiny amount of hard drive space, a potential for a great deal of expandabil...
