I have made a SqueezeCenter skin that is optimized for the screen resolution 640*360, which is what the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and Nokia N97 mobile phones have.

The skin is based entirely on the iPeng plugin, which is a plugin and skin for Iphone. I have just adjusted for the larger screen resolution of the Nokia phones.

There are still some quirks and possible bugs to fix for the skin, but I think it works better than the original iPeng on the Nokia phones.

 

Install instructions :

1. Download and install the original iPeng plugin for SqueezeCenter, you can find it here.

2. Download my modified iPeng skin as tar.gz file or as zip file.

3. Go to the "Plugins/iPeng/HTML" directory, and move/rename the iPeng directory to "iPeng.org".

4. Unzip the modified iPeng skin, which will overwrite the existing iPeng skin. The downloaded file should be unzipped in the "Plugins/iPeng/HTML" directory.

4. Restart your SqueezeCenter

5. Point you mobile phone to "http://whatever/iPeng", and enjoy.

 

Things I want to improve

1. Name the skin "nokia5800", so that you can have both the iPeng and the nokia skin present for the iPeng plugin.

2. Fix the bug where the "Back" link in the upper left corner on the "Now playing" screen does not work.

3. Fix the problems with the main menu items on the main screen, these currently just makes some blue menu items with no text appear. The same problem appear when I test in Firefox on my pc.
