CD/MP3 Windows Player to display TIMECODE

Posted on 2011-05-06
Last Modified: 2013-11-17
For a musical concert performance, we need a PC-based player application that has a mode that displays the timecode as large as possible.

we've tried Windows Media player, but it's small and hard to see at a glance (by the conductor)
we've tried MAGNIFIER but cannot find a combination of settings that would not follow the cursor and leave the "excerpted" (cropped) timecode stable while the PC-operator plays/pauses/changes tracks during the performance.
we'd rather not involve our editing software since it's large (and dangerous for mishaps during performance)

any suggestions for players to display LARGE (on the order of 1") timecode numbers?

    try windows media player -- but add a skin that shows what you are looking for.... a large view of the time code

    thanks:  but do you know of a specific one, we did look around, but maybe didn't find the right skin?  they all seem to be just various graphic/coolness design alternatives as opposed to functional.  I do realize that my usage is unusual/rare/obscure!

    I understand you are trying to get the largest time code you can...

    If you are using windows media player 9 there is one from called Alienware ALXMorph.... or the Batman Begins

    If you are using windows media player 10
    WMP 10 Reloaded

    There are different skins for each version of Windows Media player.
    Which version are you using?
