OSDBuffer

OSDBuffer

Description:OSDBuffer displays xPL osd.basic messages. It sits out of sight in your tray anpops up when it receives an osd.basic message. After the delay period specified in the message (or a default of 30 seconds if no delay specified), OSDBuffer hides itself. The main feature which led me to create this app is that it keeps a buffer of the last 10 messages received in case you missed something. It is skinnable in the sense that you can use your image as a frame.

Usage:To use it, just copy it to a directory and run it.  If you don't want to wait for the popup to go away, you can click anywhere on the message display area and OSDBuffer will hide.

To create a frame, the outer dimensions can be no larger than 350x100 pixels. The inner dimension needs to be 288x48 pixels. After creating your frame and saving it in PNG format, go to the OSDBuffer directory and rename OSDBuffer.png something else to save it. Then copy your new frame in and rename it OSDBuffer.png. I've included a few sample frames.
