How to activate the disabled music module...
If you want to use or test the music module of CenterStage you have to activate it inside the skin.

PLEASE NOTICE THAT THE MUSIC MODULE IS VERY SLOW AND CAN FREEZE IN CASE YOU HAVE BIG ITUNES LIBRARIES!

1) Open the CenterStage application bundle (right click -> show package content)
2) Go to Content / Skins / alphablack.skin /
3) Open the file skin.xml with a text editor
4) Go to line "<CSSkinModuleInfo name="MusicPlayer" modulePath="musicplayer.skinmodule" default="true" inmenu="false">"
5) Change ' inmenu="false" ' to ' inmenu="true" '
6) Save it

With your next start of CenterStage the music module will be shown in the main menu.

If you use a different skin than alphablack you have to do the same inside your skin.
