Use FrodoPlayer as Your Car PC Frontend

FrodoPlayer is one of the most popular car PC applications, because it integrates almost every conceivable feature (and has a cool name).

FrodoPlayer started out as a way for me to tie together the many functions I wanted in a car PC. When I began my car PC project, there weren’t as many programs for use with car computers and VGA touchscreens as there are now. A lot of the functions I needed just weren’t easy or safe to use in a car environment, especially for drivers. I started out with a very basic media player that played only MP3s. Compare that to what FrodoPlayer is today: a system that supports music, video, DVD, CD audio, “smart” and regular playlists, XM radio, FM radio, GPS, reversing cameras, file syncing, picture slideshows, remote control, web-based control, skinning and customization, external applications, video lockout for safety and legal reasons, and ties in with external applications written specifically for the car PC market. Believe it or not, even more features are in the works, and all the existing features are constantly being improved.
