I came upon this idea that there is now a media player which now only serves its purpose as music player. This "media player" could be however expanded to include for example videos, e-books, internet radios, maybe even streaming services like spotify, netflix etc.

Although the idea about a large "media player" is possibly a bit problematic in "developer aspect" it could be quite nice if it could be actually implemented somehow (For example possibility for developers do co-develop different sections of media player app).

All-in-one Jolla media player would help to make using different services and apps from one place instead of multiple separate apps.

The media player does support internet radio (at least via .m3u playlists, I haven't tried .pls). I think I've heard about it supporting video playback as well, but I haven't tried that myself.

should also able to play stream iptv/ipradio with DVB codec H.264 AVC part10 and radio with codec AACplus :-) example: rtp://@ http://www.radioswisspop.ch/live/aacp.m3u

The idea is that all media could be accessed from one app which would be called something like "Jolla media player" to give an example. From this "Jolla media player" you could choose the media you like to open (For example internet radio).

The selected media would open in separate "app" to homescreen so that the cover features of the "app" could be used for that specific media.

When closing current "app" it could be opened again from this "Jolla media player"

This is just to be considered a "raw" idea but if you like this kind of "Jolla media player" idea, feel free to suggest how it could be improved even better.

Like the stock player present in the N900 :) I think it was meant to be a versatile player from the start, that why it is named media player, and why you have to go to gallery to be able to play videos.

The idea about all-in-one solution in single media player is nice, but it would perhaps require more intensive co-operation between individuals and Jolla developers to achieve this reasonably. If this could be eventually possible to implement in Jolla, it would very nice indeed.
