[PLUGIN] Windows Media Prevent-Lock Plugin
This is a plugin for Windows Media Player that will prevent the device from locking while playing media.
I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time, and have found nothing so I finally wrote one myself. I like my phone to lock after about 5 minutes for security purposes, but I also use it as my media player in my car, and typing the password in while driving every time I want to change songs gets real tiring… Took a while to finally figure out how to write a WMP mobile plugin, the MSDN documentation is horribly outdated; I could only find information on how to do it in VS2003, which didn’t work on 2008.
You can find more information in the application thread.
