HelixPlayer for Symbian v1.0

This is the first project in Helix Community that created the S60 Player GUI and ported Helix DNA Client to Symbian OS to produce a fully featured player on a Symbian device. This project is now closed for new development and while open to maintenace patches, it is mostly inactive. It servers as a foundation for subsequent versions of HelixPlayer for Symbian.

Helix DNA Client for Symbian v1.0 GUI


Helix DNA client is a modular architecture in which profiles can be specified to include any combination of needed features. However, to reduce the cost of testing, two profiles are envisioned at this time for this project:

  • Standard:
