Re: Archos A5 IT full screen support for APKs

Hi, thanks for your answer. I also tried <uses-permission android:name="archos.permission.FULLSCREEN" /> but the app does not turn off the softkeys. Here you can find my very simple hello-world-app (as Eclipse project): http://test.janjonas.net/fullscreen.zip ok, so it seems you need to use: <uses-...

Re: Ac3 plugin now for money ??

@JasonF: Thanks, but I don't see Archos charging for a plug-in pack (that actually shipped with our units) to also play MP3, MPEG4, WMV, WMA, or any of the other formats also covered by FFmpeg with similar grey legal status. Dolbi is the company holding the rights for AC3, and they charge a license...

Re: Ac3 plugin now for money ??

Could you maybe also work on making it cheaper? The price for the codec pack seems pretty steep when there are other video players on the market that can play most or all of those formats for cheaper (namely vPlayer, which is free). do you see vPlayer listed as being licensed at the Dolby website? ...

Re: Losing files on the micro SD card

as a temporary workaround, you can put a file named ".nomedia" in the sdcard root folder, that seems to prevent the lost files it seems, we are still investigating what happens. So to make this work, do I just name some random file ".nomedia" (i.e. a folder) and place it in the root folder of the S...

Re: SSID Broadcasting

If you do not want to broadcast your SSID is there any way to connect to your router from the Archos 101? hiding your SSID does not make your wifi more secure, the opposite is the case: http://blogs.technet.com/b/networking/archive/2008/02/08/non-broadcast-wireless-ssids-why-hidden-wireless-network...
