pupRadio and pupTelly

It seems like just about every day I visit the forum and there is some new exciting project started!

pupRadio and pupTelly is an example, created by 01micko:

Puppy 431 has Pstreamvid created by trio:

One thing I was wondering, trio modified his script to work specifically with Gxine 0.5.9, but my Quirky has Gxine 0.5.904.

What about pupRadio/pupTelly, is it happy with either version of Gxine? Of course, your script can read the version of Gxine by

gxine --help | grep '^gxine ' | cut -f 2 -d ' '

...and then behave accordingly.

To be honest Barry I didn't test it with gxine-0.5.904. I think 4.2.1 has 904 and I happen to have it on my HD so I'll give it a spin and report back... although I noticed you rolled gxine back to 0.5.9 in Quirky. Part of my focus here is to keep it as small as possible, but still keep the users happy, and to have some fun expanding my bash skills.
BTW, I didn't have any luck with quirky and my ati radeon 9200 pro, xorg works but I can't set the correct res for my widescreen, only 'vesa' driver is loaded, in other puppies it's 'radeon' but It wouldn't work, but I didn't spend much time trying to solve it either. I'll check back on that when Q-002 is out.
Cheers and season's greetings.

gxine and pupRadio
I think that trio said there is a difference in how you get them to go full-screen.

Ahh yes! The fullscreen bug in 904. Quirky-001 wouldn't get me online (wireless, 2 cards, don't know if it is reported), and 421 has 903 but I found ppa422 which has 904. Radio works fine but fullscreen video doesn't work. I think trio's workaround was to open a in a window based on the user's screensize.

I put a workaround in pupRadio/Telly for gxine-0.5.904 which opens it in the default window. There is a note in the gui to toggle fullscreen with F. Thanks for the code snippet. For all other players including gxine-0.5.9 it opens a video in fullscreen. Since you dropped 904 I didn't spend a great deal of time on supporting it (or code ;) )
I also added support for xine making it compatible with Boxpup and Boxpuppeee, only a few bytes of code.
