An API for Android?  OMG, if that could be done it would really be appreciated.

Unfortunately even though the Flex SDK is wonderful to work as a developer is really resource heavy on the phone, so it would be really forbidding on the low to mid range devices due to RAM and ROM requirements. I had to move to Native Android development where I have to familiarize my self since I have no previous experience developing for Android so that's the reason for the delay. Luckily I don't have to rework the plugin part or the Xml based protocol as they work fine so I just have to replicate the functionality on the native application. The native application seems to be really light on resources and I can also implement a few features I had in mind, like the option to lower the music volume on incoming call. Also I will try to implement the ability to change the song rating, since the android SDK has a rating control. The lowest targeted version will be Android 2.2 [API v8].

Looking great thus far! What's the name of the song playing in the video? I'm pretty sure that Finntoll is not the same artist as the artist playing :P

No the track playing is one of the free tracks youtube has for users (title:This House Is Funky 3 (30) Barrie Gledden, Kes Loy). I am not sure if I could use fintroll on a youtube video on due to copyright. 

Also new vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IfrZD96oZM with the playlist working :)

This is the only reason why I don't use MusicBee: The missing android remote control.

... but: I don't see a volume control in the layout... this is the function I use the most

-edit- oops.. found it... it's the big one! Very nice
I thought the volume slider is the song position locator.. this is much better!

Can I have it ? :)

on the video link the following comment was made by kelsos:
"actually there are some issues that have to be? resolved and some more work has to be done in the server - plugin part unfortunately I don't have much time to continue the development at the moments since it is exam period so I ll have to delay it for a while. "

This is really very impressive stuff.  Looking forward any available testing phase
