Sujet Indicator for CPU usage
preferably via a textzone element, then we can use it very easy in a skin.
Now I have to open my taskmonitor each time to do that.
Can this be implemented in a future update

The CPU monitor could not advice you in advance. When it's overbusy it's too late to avoid a freezing sound. And if you want to see the CPU monitor you can switch directly with task manager with alt+tab.
That's only my point of view.

it could be an option has to put on the skin
if you don't use it , its ok
but il somebody need it , il can be on an skin
it is the progrest.
Why the sampler
Why the Video

Let me add the bitrate, and timecode quality (%) (like final scracth) as skin elements too.

and the CPU temp.

also its gonna use up more cpu process just telling you what its using.... i would just get a 3rd party program for the temp and cpu usage and run it whenever you want to that would be more helpful than overloading virtualdj's software with un-dj/vj or even kj related features the software is already a superb value compare to the others that can do videos and karaoke as well as dj....and they have no cpu usage indicator and oh yeah there also alot more money

some DJ are against the progrest
like who just mix on Vinils, the said "CD and PC are just for kids and dummy"
but who want the progrest need new tools. The CPU indicator is not an impressive tools, but we play music on an PC and the PC have an CPU.
Its like the Buffer Indicator on an CD Player , it is not necessary, but it is useful, you can know how long the Song need to be loaded, and if the CD are in good condition or in poorly readable condition,
With an CPU Indicator you can know if an video are to heavy on the CPU ....

I know very well that when you are on 100% CPU it is maybe too late to do something.
I said maybe, as you can close the video window, look for non video file for the next song ...
but main reason of my request is like DJ Zim Zimma and a few others also tried to explain before.
When system is at 100% then there is for a small period no reaction on the mouse, then you get nervous as you are in the search for the next song and you start clicking around and then cause finally a shutdown/error etc...
At that moment they only thing you can do is yell into the mike "Sorry folks i'm using Virtual DJ" and
cross your fingers that no one in the public is shouting back "Buy a faster PC" (don't take this sentence too serious, it's only a joke but also an expression for my frustration when VDJ hangs due to usage of video.
As I stated before, this is a very easy to be implemented functionality and when it is skinnable everybody can use it at free choice.
You love it, you skin it - you hate it well ... hide it (everybody happy)
Video is fun but demands a lot of your harware resources and if they are on the limit like mine (P4 2.4G with 1GB RAM) i consider my request as resonable.
If it is not worth to implement this functionality, fine by me but please adjust the "recommended specifications" as for usage with video they are not correct.
