The XEON Mp3 Player for vBulletin 3.6.X




http://www.digitalport.co.uk/images/xeonplayer_beta.jpg

Design: Syrus XL Media 2003-2007
Coding Update: vBmotion.com (http://www.vbmotion.com)

Demo: www.digitalport.co.uk (http://www.digitalport.co.uk) (Click Entertainment>XEON Mp3 Player)

Important: Supported only on Digital Port UK (http://www.digitalport.co.uk)

Update Rev: 4.0.1 - Navbar code updated to work with vBadvanced CMPS outside the forum directory.
Updated Rev: 4.0.0 - All known bugs fixed in AdminCP, these include the Approve Mp3 issue and the Edit Mp3 problem.
Added: 21/04/07 - XEON Player in vB Custom Page Instructions.zip
Demo: http://www.digitalport.co.uk/digital/misc.php?do=page&template=Xeon

Version: 3.6.0 coding (Major UPDATE) *see below
Version: 3.5.1 coding (Product XML file updated)
Version: 3.0 XEON Player (Shuffle disabled) *Player Only Package* added.

Fully compatible and tested on vBulletin 3.6.0, 3.7 and up.

No example tracks are included in this version.

*IMPORTANT: About version 3.6!!*
If you have installed this modification prior to the latest version 3.6, it is recommended that you update to the latest version 3.6 immediately. Older versions contain a Security Hole in the admin section. All database errors have been fixed, special thanks to Code Monkey.

External Data Pull
This modification is designed to pull data from internal and external servers. Check that you enter full urls to pull external data or the modification will fail to read.

Features:
Can hold upto 500 mp3 tracks (5 playlists with 100 tracks in each)
Automatically cuts off access to playlists if 100 tracks are reached
All track data held in database
Volume & Pan(balance) Controls
Add mp3's through AdminCP or via Popup
PM system notifcation of new tracks submitted
Edit/Delete/Approve/Deny tracks via AdminCP
Usergroup Permissions for adding tracks and viewing of player
Multi-functional display on mp3 player
WOL Enabled - see who's using the mp3 player
Stream and Buffer parameters per track
Track pre-loading on displayThis version is not compatible with the XML driven vbMp3 Player I released awhile ago (you may uninstall or leave in, as this version uses renamed files). The player, and all code have been changed, and now fully utilizes the vBulletin AdminCP for settings, mp3 playlist management, usergroup permissions.

Known Issues:
None

UPDATING:
Overwrite all files with the new package XEON Mp3 Player v4.0.0
Import the Product XML file using the vBulletin Product Manager. Go to Mp3 Player Management and update settings and Save.

Template edit:
(required on new install or upgrade, unless you have installed other products from us.).
In the headinclude template -
Find:
<script type="text/javascript" src="clientscript/vbulletin_global.js?v=$vboptions[simpleversion]"></script>
Above add:
<script type="text/javascript" src="clientscript/flashobject.js"></script>If this line of code already exists then DO NOT ADD IT!

End of Update


MAIN INSTALLATION

Installation:
Upload the contents of the ‘Upload folder’ to your forum root. Import the ‘product-mp3player.xml’ file via ‘Plugins & Products’ – Manage Products – Import Product in your AdminCP. Press F5 or refresh your browser window to view the Mp3 Player Management menu. Once you install this version make sure you Update the MP3 Management settings and click SAVE, failure to do so will result in an error if you enable the custom PM notification system.

Template Edits:
These edits are based on the default vBulletin style, you may need to change if you have a custom style.


AdminCP -> Styles & Templates -> Navigation / Breadcrumb Templates -> navbar

Find:

<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="calendar.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[calendar]</a></td>
After add:

<!-- Mp3 Player Launch -->
<if condition="$show['member']">
<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="javascript:NewWindow=window.open('$vboptions/mp3playerindex.php?do=viewmp3playerpopup','newWin','width=500,height=500,left=0, top=0, toolbar=No,location=No,scrollbars=1,status=No,resizable=No,fullscreen=No');
NewWindow.focus(); void(0);">vbMp3 Player</a></td>
</if>
<!-- End Mp3 Player Launch -->
Now, navigate to AdminCP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager – adjust usergroups permissions as required. Default is all usergroups have no access.

You now have the vbMp3 XEON player installed!

[B]Update notifications can only be sent out if you have clicked 'INSTALL'.

More players will available shortly.

Enjoy!

I got a question, my templates are different due to the fact that I have a custom template... how would I configure this so it displays the mp3 player as a popup? This is in my header:

<td width="70" height="22" align="left" valign="top"><a href="xeon.htm?s=$session[sessionhash]"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/tren_z_header_vbplayer.gif" width="70" height="22" alt="" border="0" /></a></td>

Its tren_z style, half of the stuff in the navbar and half in the header and I dont know how to code it :(

Yes, it will take time to convert the XML version urls into this version, however this version is more secure and no XML files exist. The player is populated using just a single PHP file, that cannot be read directly from a browser.:)

All playlists will hold 100 tracks, after which point the system will stop anymore adding of tracks. Just a fail-safe really.

Hi Syrus... thanks for all your hard work.

My question is about adding MP3 URL's... my music is in 4 folders on my server... does it require the FULL URL (with http://) or will it accept "/forum/music/playlist1.mp3"?

I have nearly 300 songs to add..LOL :)

It may work with a relative url, thats one thing I have not tried yet. Flash can be 'funny' with some relative urls, but it does work on occassions depending on the location of the main flash file. Worth a try though, if thats how you have them entered in the old XML files.

300..wow! Alot of work, to do manually!:ermm:

It uses the full URL with http://

And yes, lots of work to do. I'm just leaving the old one intact until I have time to do the adds in the AdminCP. It's all good. :squareeyed:

Thanks, but the image seems to drop out of place... www.chasm-online.com. Perhaps that is normal? Thanks for the great support!

It doesnt seem to care to work on my portal vbacmps:

Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required './global.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/lib/php') in /home/chasmonl/public_html/mp3playerindex.php on line 33

Thats the error I get :( I believe my paths are right

Hi,

I look into launching the player from an image in the navbar.

As for the player working in the vBa CMPS, it doesn't use a straight forward method. I will post the vBa center module, probably tomorrow as an addon. The 'mp3playerindex.php cannot be accessed directly it requires a 'do' in the url, this will vary depending on the required function.

Here's a demo (http://www.digitalport.co.uk/vb36/index.php?styleid=1) I used to test it in a vBa CMPS center block.

At the moment, the player is not coded to stream a radio station. This might be an addition we may implement in the Commercial Premium version, which also supports video as well as mp3 streaming. ;)

Ah right..

The link would need to changeover in vBa CMPS, this is due to your vBa CMPS being installed outside the forum root. The actual 'call' url from the forum root to the popup is 'mp3playerindex.php?do=viewmp3playerpopup'. The popup is using a vBulletin template, which is nothing like the old XML version.

So, what you would need is the navbar code to change from when launched in the forum, to when its launched in the CMPS. I will go into this change-over sequence when I release the vBa CMPS block, there will be a few options available to code it correctly to your forum.

If I am understanding this right... I changed the template edit, adding theforum
to the call...

like this...

'/theforum/mp3playerindex.php?do=viewmp3playerpopup'


Works fine from the CMPS page for me. I am using an extremepixels style also, although you'd never recognize it!! LOL

There are major differences between the old XML version and this full vBulletin integration.

Changes since the original vbMp3 Player

Fully compatible with the 'vBulletin Product System'
Use database population as opposed to XML (more secure)
Uses Usergroup permissions (2 options per usergroup)
Settings for playlist Mp3 Management
Mp3's can now be moderated via AdminCP
Add/Delete Mp3's in the AdminCP
Approve/Deny new Mp3's (uploaded via members)
Enable/Disable PM system (used for informing you of new Mp3's added)
100 track 'forced' per playlist (preventing an unstable issue)


As for mp3 players crashing vBulletin, I've never heard of it...:confused: I can't see how this would happen.

Currently, in this package I have only included one player, but there are variations that I plan to add - these will include:

AutoStart Enabled
Shuffle Enabled

Shuffle Disabled

Yesterday, I had a busy day and didn't have time to compile the required new players. But they will follow.:)

What does this "mass populating the player" mean?

The ability to add more than one URL for the MP3's at a time. I have over 300 songs, and adding them is somewhat tedious when it has to be done one at a time. Copy, paste, add name, lather, rinse, repeat. LOL

But this hack is well worth it, in my humble opinion. :rambo:

22 Oct 2006, 13:03
What does this "mass populating the player" mean?

Basically, if you had the previous version installed which used XML files to populate the player. then this is an option to convert them to use the vbulletin database. All the urls and track data needs to be inserted into this version manually, one at a time.

So, 'mass populating' can be done by using a SQL query, by entering all the tracks into a notepad document, and then copy and paste this data into either the AdminCP - SQL Query or directly into your database using phpMyAdmin.

For SQL queries to be done in vBulletin you need to enable this feature in the includes/config.php file.

I got 3 of the 5 playlists done before my eyes just would not stay open last night (or I should say this morning LOL)

I wondered about doing it through the database, but I barely feel comfortable with code... I don't mess with the database unless I absolutely have to. I am the only admin and yes I can run queries, I just don't so I don't break something. :up:

We can incorporate playlist naming, but this will probably be released in an update. As it would require code and internal player code modifications.

Or are you refering to the names it shows in vBulletin? If this is the case, it's not that hard to change, but the player buttons would also require changes.

For those interested, I have created a little PERL shell script to create the playlist SQL insert statement automatically.

Here u go. You do need to know PERL to run it :)

1. Create the file list

LIST.txt needs to be in this format
file1.mp3
file2.mp3
file3.mp3

you can do a dir or ls (in unix) and save the list to LIST.txt (or whatever)


2. Create a Perl script . Name it what you like i.e. list.pl


------------ cut here ------------------
#!D:/xampp/perl/bin/perl.exe #update this to the location of your perl executable #!/usr/bin/perl or whatever

# Open file
$data_file="LIST.txt";

my $url = "http://yourmp3_files_URL/";

open(FILE, $data_file) || die("Could not open file!");

@raw_data=<FILE>;

close (FILE);


# Data stored in VB this way
#Playlist 1 = 'vb_mp3playlist'
#Playlist 2 = 'vb_mp3playlist1'
#Playlist 3 = 'vb_mp3playlist2'
#Playlist 4 = 'vb_mp3playlist3'
#Playlist 5 = 'vb_mp3playlist4'

# Insert rows like this
#INSERT INTO `vb_mp3playlist` VALUES (1, 'mp3 1 url goes here', 'true', 1, 'artist and song number 1 goes here', 1);
#INSERT INTO `vb_mp3playlist` VALUES (2, 'mp3 2 url goes here', 'true', 1, 'artist and song number 2 goes here', 1);
#INSERT INTO `vb_mp3playlist` VALUES (3, 'mp3 3 url goes here', 'true', 1, 'artist and song number 3 goes here', 1);

my $i = 0; # or whatever you want the list to start at
foreach $line (@raw_data)
{
chop($line);
#Split name and extension
($w_name,$temp)=split(/\./,$line);

#build full url
my $mp3url= $url . $line;

#build songname
my $songname = $w_name;

#insert statement
print "INSERT INTO vb_mp3playlist VALUES ($i, '$mp3url', 'true', 1, '$songname', 1);\n";

$i++;

}

exit (0);
--------------------- cut here ---------------


3. Run scrit and pipe the results

list.pl > list.txt


4. Run the the SQL


5. Voila!

aaaah, its in the code for the navbar u mean.......

I am wanting to add a link within a post as for me, its for a special feature on the site so people can access it from the link I give in a post...... :)

So I would put CLICK HERE to play mp3 player. that will then open the popup player :)

Hi Bandare,

Yeah, that was the code I was referring too.

Placing a link in a post, would require HTML to be enabled in the forum, since it requires the navbar code to be changed.

If you need to know the code let me know.

Another Admin installed this and didn't Update first, I tried to uninstall it(after telling him to read the instructions first or don't do it) and reinstalled it. It still won't update now, still gives the redirect error.

Any way to fix this?

Uninstall the product from Products & Plugins first, then you will need to edit the database using phpMyAdmin and 'Drop' the mp3player settings table. This is the only table left after doing the Product uninstall, so all previous settings will be deleted.

This will clear all the modfication from the system. So, by doing a fresh install you will need to first 'Update' the settings in Mp3 Player Management. If you don't update first then then error cache is not cleared, which causes the error.

Hope that helps!

logged back in
reinstalled the product
update the settings after refresh
still get the redirect error.

any ideas?

22 Oct 2006, 19:03
Do you mean the 'mp3player_cp_redirect' once settings are saved? This is not an error, its listed under 'Known Issues' and refers to a missing phrase. I will be updating the package in a few days and this missing phrase will be added.

It will still function correctly, its just vbulletin stating that a phrase is missing, not defined.

If that's what you are referring too?

Sorry, I forgot about this post!:o

Right, I will modifying the code and the vbMp3 Player (ipod 'lookalike') very soon. Due to the way the vbMp3 functions, it requires changes to the main files of this new version.

I do have another mini-player (The 'Pico' Player) which will function the same as the XEON with multiple playlists, yet everything is very small, but this is in early development stages.

So, yes there is a few new players that will be released, including the 'vbE-
Center' (a mp3 and video player combined!).;)

This is really strange. When I first installed this hack, everything seems to work just fine but then, a few minutes later while I was adding some more songs to the MP3 player, it seems that it doesn't wanna work no more! Don't ask me how or why 'cause I've no idea.

Here take a look for yourself:
http://www.finalfantasyforums.net/mp3playerindex.php?do=viewmp3playerpopup

Note that you must be a member inorder to view the player. As you can see, the song doesn't even stream or plays it. It says the URL address to that song but it doesn't load or at least, says the title of that song. Do you have any idea what's going on? Is it because I have the songs uploaded in a sub-folder (which would be: http://www.finalfantasyforums.net/jukebox/adventchildren/opening.mp3).

Also, in case you haven't noticed, I think I've managed to find a few bugs:

-While adding a quote or multi quotes (such as: ' "), it should give you a mySQL page error. (See below.)
-Accessing the "http://www.yourdomain.com/mp3playerindex.php" page gives you a blank, white page.
-After editting the settings for the player, it gives me this error "Could not find phrase 'mp3player_cp_redirect'.".
-And finally, after adding a song/mp3 via the ACP, each time when you edit that song you will notice that the "Approve MP3" option automatically checks to "No" when it's supposed to say "Yes". It's kinda a pain in the ass to edit every song and set it to "Yes" inorder to get the song working in the player.

how does the buffer number work?????

syrus.xl
22 Oct 2006, 22:17
@Snake: I will get my co-author to look into these issues. Strange, we've never had a problem like that during testing. The missing redirect phrase in the AdminCP is noted in Known Issues.

how does the buffer number work?????

The buffer works like this:

The player has default settings, namely Stream set to 'True' and Buffer set to '5'. Note: If the Stream is set to 'False' on a track, the buffer will be useless.

This is how it works:
For the Buffer to function, Streaming must be set to true. If Stream is set to 'False' then the player will download the entire track before playing it.

With Stream set to 'True', a buffer value can be entered which overrides the default value held within the player.

The Buffer is measured in seconds, it is the delay required before a track starts to play. For example, if the Buffer is set to '5' then the player will only start playing once it has downloaded at least the first 5 seconds of the track.

Basically, you set it higher if your server is slow loading, or an external server is running slow. Normally, if you host the mp3's on your own server, then the buffer can be set quite low. Setting the Buffer to '1' will mean it will play a track, virtually instantly.

The problem with the phrase will not affect the performance of this modification, it is only a definition missing for the 'mp3player_cp_redirect' in the AdminCP, and is listed under Known Issues and will be fixed shortly.

Thank you, that would be great as the other server is hardly used and is perfect for storage.

Heres another dumb question, is it possible to have more than 5 playlists? So instead of 5 of 100 you could have 10 of say 20. Thinking that members could submit their own playlists and have the option of listening to a specific playlist instead of having it on to go through all tracks on one play list. I have some long time good active members and it would be a bonus for them to have the ability to have their own play list. Just wondering?

The current player (Xeon) is only designed for 5 playlists, the internal player coding sets various parameter for tracks per playlist. Hence, it cannot be just changed, to 10 or 20 buttons - it would require major alterations to the database for playlist control and settings. Virtually all the current files would require updating.

We also have planned the 'vbE-Center', this will be a commercial project since it will be able to play mp3's, stream radio and have a sliding screen for video viewing. This is a huge project, and will have many features never seen before. We already have the video side working, and planning the radio stream next. It also allows uploading of videos.:cool:

If the flash movie is not showing it can be one of two things:

1. The xeon_mp3_beta.swf file is not in the root of your forum directory

or

2. The flashobject.js is not in the root of the forum directory

The popup template calls the flashobject.js file to invoke the main swf, therefore if either are missing or not readable, then it will fail to load.

Also, note you have Usergroup permissions set correctly, and the Mp3 Player Management is set to 'On'. More than likely it will be one of the aforementioned files.

Brilliant thanks, Syrus. Working fine on my site and looking forward to the fixes. Also keen on seeing the video, paid, version. Let me know, please.

For Boss 302, I don't know if it helps but there are a couple of tips here: first, if you have all your mp3s in a file on your server, you can in fact use a relative url. So, no need for the http:// myforum.com/forums ... or whatever. Try using [ ./mp3/musicfilename.mp3 ] without the brackets, of course. And the full stop (point) before the first forward slash is essential.

The second tip: highlight each mp3 file name, copy it and paste into the loader after you insert ./mp3/ . That way, you make no mistakes and don't need to insert %20 in blank spaces and so on. It also ensures you get the mp3 name, whatever it may be, correct. Naturally, you can insert whatever you like for the band/singer and the track name that you want to appear on the player's playlist.

Oh, one last thing. Make sure there are no quotes or apostrophes in your mp3 file name or you'll get a database error message about syntax. Syrus is fixing this, I understand - but it's easy to remove them and everything then works just fine.

Hope that helps.

Yeah sure, will annouce it when near completion. Obviously, we cannot advertise it vbulletin.org.

The vbFLV Player uses a scrolling system where the user can choose video clips, from a small menu which can hold short descriptions and small thumbnails of videos available. Basically, it uses very similar coding to the current modification on this thread, but able to display video and audio compared to just mp3's.

The vbE-Center will be a major breakthrough though - that we are hoping to use mp3's, video, 'live' radio and tv..:cool: But along way off yet.

I am still having issues while using this hack. I have even informed syrus, gave him info to my site to fix but still never heard a word from him again. :(

Biggles, you might be able to help me out here?

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1102264&postcount=62

Sorry, Snake.. I was hoping to have a new admin.php file which I was going to use earlier. However, my co-auhor went offline early. I will look into it tomrrow morning, first thing, before work. I still have all the login details, etc. So I'll try again.

If your around I may need access to the database to do a manual fix, but I'll see how it goes tomorrow.

I apologise for the delay.

Syrus, yes please. Let me know when you launch either or both of these video versions. Incidentally, it's great to know you're just up the road from me (I'm just south of Bristol near Cheddar). This Player is great. I've had your hack working since the first version. You're a star!

Snake, I'm not a coder's bootlace (retired airline pilot) but your problems seem to be unique in some respects. Not so in others. The 'MySQL' database error to which you refer is the one caused by syntax as I advised Boss 302. That's easy - take out any quotes (double or single) and any apostrophes. Look out for "I've" or "can't" or whatever and remove them.

I'll have a shot at some of these too, which you stated as follows:

-While adding a quote or multi quotes (such as: ' "), it should give you a mySQL page error. (See below.)
-Accessing the "http://www.yourdomain.com/mp3playerindex.php" page gives you a blank, white page.
-After editting the settings for the player, it gives me this error "Could not find phrase 'mp3player_cp_redirect'.".
-And finally, after adding a song/mp3 via the ACP, each time when you edit that song you will notice that the "Approve MP3" option automatically checks to "No" when it's supposed to say "Yes". It's kinda a pain in the ass to edit every song and set it to "Yes" inorder to get the song working in the player.

The first I've dealt with above. The second - try uploading the mp3playerindex.php file to your forum root again. It may have been corrupted during initial install. The third - it's been dealt with by Syrus for about three or four members. It is due to missing code BUT will not affect the player's operation. The code will be fixed by Syrus shortly.

Now the last. I had the same problem. Another similar snag is that if you use the buffer and set the buffer period to anything, say 5 or 10 seconds, you have to go back and check the box again when you return to approve. That is to say, once you've put in the track and its name (where you cannot approve or reject because the option's just not there until you click 'ADD') you MUST return via 'edit' on the playlist to approve AND to reset the buffer period. If you don't do this, nothing shows up on the playlist.

As for white pages, may I ask if you are running vBSEO? If so, I may have another clue for you.

I can confirm this is working on 3.5.4. Note however that there's still an issue with adding MP3's from AdminCP, so this is a general bug.

If you add MP3's via the jukebox itself - it's fine. The AdminCP options redirect also needs adjusting.

Hi,

At present Flash is unable to stream such formats, it cant even use midi. Unless when the new version comes out from Adobe, then we can't make anything to support unrecognized formats.

There are numerous reasons why this approach was abandoned.

1. PHP upload restrictions on hosts normally set uploads via http using PHP to 2Mb. Some hosts allow the use of using a php.ini file to override this, but many don't.

2. If someone uploaded copyrighted material onto a server in a country where storing mp3's and streaming is illegal, you would be in violation of local laws.

3. Bandwidth would be high due to uploading and then streaming of one mp3 would be in effect doubling the mp3 usage. Not everyone has large bandwdith limits.

Since all this was considered before the design, it seemed an idea using links would be more useful.

Just a quick note on 3.5.4 compatibility. I'm not entirely sure why, but some songs just won't play after upload, even when submitted via the jukebox. You get the same issue as if you'd added them from the jukebox, i.e. title is there, but it just doesn't want to play.

Is that a multiple navbar hack, or have you just coded a new navbar into the template? Either way because you are using a customized style, the table class would need to be changed to whatever your navbar class is.

Hi Biggles,

There seems to be a problem relating to vbSEO (I have never used this, so I wouldn't know of the issue). All testing is done on 'virgin' vBulletin installs with no addons.

vbSEO is rewriting the popup url and doubling the 'do' url, which is why a 'white page' is showing since the PHP file does not handle the 'do' call twice, only once for any function.

If you have vbSEO and know of a fix, please post your idea.

Thanks.

Awesome hack, works great. :) Got a bit confused by a blank white page for a long time, before figuring out that, er, I hadn't turned it on. Ahem.

One question that relates to the style of the thing - it looks fantastic, and it's very pretty, but I've got a couple of members who need accessibility considerations due to partial blindness. The colours are a bit hard to distinguish for them. Is it possible to have a skin selector with a more visible style available to people who need higher contrast graphics?

A 'skin' isn't available with this version due to the way it was designed. Skin selectors need to have alot of code redone, since the player would need to be changed to accomodate this feature. The AdminCP would require an upload function to be added, to add new skins.

This feature will be added to the Premium Commercial version, presently in development stages at the moment.

If you noticed this modification was released as a 'beta' version, therefore its subject to change with peoples comments taken into consideration.

I was working on a 'flash' float window... however, this would auto-shut on a page change. A popup is difficult to match the vBulletin style, is becoming harder to achieve, since most new browsers have the url showing. Normally, this could be stopped using js - but with IE 7 and Opera 9 it still shows.

The popup template is changing, all it will show is the actual player and nothing else.

Probably, have something new soon... and all 'bugs' fixed.;)

Hi,

What does 'And so that it runs all by itself ????' mean? Are you referring to a version of the player that will autoStart upon page load?

If thats the case, then I would need to re-code and compile a new version of the player itself, because that function can only be controlled by flash not PHP coding.

That sounds like some 'td' tags are incorrectly set. The js code is only set to popup the player, not adjust any width or height dimensions.

... yes, I'm running on vBSEO as you can see. It that a problem or something I wonder? Well, Snake (and for Syrus too in response to his request for a fix), it can be a problem as follows:

My server had a PHP Memory Limit of 8MB, which I understand is fairly generous (some hosts allow only 2MB). But it was not enough to properly run vBSEO, as they themselves know because they advise a memory limit of 32MB. I ran vBSEO just fine for a few days but then things went a little haywire. One of the snags was 'white paging' on a 'do' command. The problem was resolved by modifying the ini.php - indirectly - my host ended up doing it for me, thank goodness.

Whether or not a low memory limit was causing Snake's white paging problem is uncertain without knowing more about his server limits.

I would emphasise that vBSEO is a favourite mod of mine and I value it greatly. But it does definitely need a PHP memory limit of 32 MB to run without snags. It occurred to me when I read Snake's white paging problem that his memory limit could be the problem rather than it being caused by the vbMP3Player - which has to be my second favourite mod. It's great, Syrus, thank you. My members use it all the time and think it is fantastic.

I hope this post will also explain my earlier post to the others who report no problem with vBSEO. It would depend, I think, on the PHP memory limit imposed by your host - but it can easily be resolved by having the limit lifted to 32 MB.

Sorry for the delay in responding - been very busy sorting out things on a brand new site being set up by my far better half.

Best wishes

Hi Hammondfra

I had a quick look to see if anyone answered you. Didn't see anything [but my eyes are not what they once used to be :) ].

I think you are trying to upload using the vBulletin Plugin system. If so, try uploading where you should be - in the Product system. This fantastic Player is not a plugin but a product. If you try to upload a product via plugin, you will get that error message you have reported.

Ah right..

Try adding a Navbar Replacement to your CMPS.

AdminCP -> vba CMPS -> Default Settings -> Navbar Replacements
Add mp3playerindex.php to the list

Click Save

Strangely, I still get that error, is it in the code you gave me perhaps? Everything looks perfectly fine!

myspace doesn't allow javascript calls on any profiles, therefore the call code wouldn't work. There is a workaround code, but note this may cause excessive sql queries, if someone else viewed your page source on your profile, to find the hosting server, and the code started getting posted around myspace.

Due to the embed code that myspace will only allow, you would have to use the 'old' embed tag method, which now shows 'white' bounding boxes around any embedded page objects.

I can write the code if you wish... but its something I wouldn't recommend.

That is the XML driven version, which was first released as the vbMp3 Player. Details for that block can be found here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1068038&postcount=2).

That player hasn't been updated to use the vBulletin database, it maybe released at a later date, but nothing is planned yet.

There is a known bug in a single playlist only capable of holding 100 tracks per playlist, however this was fixed using a conditional in this version. The other bug with the player, relates to having only one song in a playlist - this causes the playlist, to loop in the actionscript which in turn causes an unstable script error.

Yes... there must be at least 2 songs in playlist for the player to remain stable. The playlist is there for adding many songs, this bug was originally found in the first release using XML feeds, but since then most player bugs have been fixed by using PHP to control the player within its own limits.

By the time I have the vbE-Center ready, I hope to have all these bugs fixed in the main console, which is already in development stages.;)

Well, Snake (and for Syrus too in response to his request for a fix), it can be a problem as follows:

My server had a PHP Memory Limit of 8MB, which I understand is fairly generous (some hosts allow only 2MB). But it was not enough to properly run vBSEO, as they themselves know because they advise a memory limit of 32MB. I ran vBSEO just fine for a few days but then things went a little haywire. One of the snags was 'white paging' on a 'do' command. The problem was resolved by modifying the ini.php - indirectly - my host ended up doing it for me, thank goodness.

Whether or not a low memory limit was causing Snake's white paging problem is uncertain without knowing more about his server limits.

I would emphasise that vBSEO is a favourite mod of mine and I value it greatly. But it does definitely need a PHP memory limit of 32 MB to run without snags. It occurred to me when I read Snake's white paging problem that his memory limit could be the problem rather than it being caused by the vbMP3Player - which has to be my second favourite mod. It's great, Syrus, thank you. My members use it all the time and think it is fantastic.

I hope this post will also explain my earlier post to the others who report no problem with vBSEO. It would depend, I think, on the PHP memory limit imposed by your host - but it can easily be resolved by having the limit lifted to 32 MB.

Sorry for the delay in responding - been very busy sorting out things on a brand new site being set up by my far better half.

Best wishes

Biggles :D

Thanks Biggles!

I know vBSEO can cause problems with some modifcations - and I've been informed by some users that the 'ioncube' version runs better than the 'Zend' version.

I might invest in vBSEO in the future, once I've released a few more mods, and got rid of all the little bugs from this version.

It seems the player goes into a actionscript loop with only one song in any playlist. I have now found a fix for this and will add a new player later today.

However, the fix means disabling the 'Shuffle' feature, which is why the script becomes unresponsive, due to trying to shuffle a single track.

Physically, its not possible to randomize a single track.

So, later today I'll release a version which will not autoStart or shuffle tracks, with details why.

All mp3 urls should not contain spaces. Either use no space or an underscore instead. Another problem is quotes, however this will be fixed in the main code update.

You need to put in the admin id number and there admin name when you have done so the error will go.

There is only one problem with this, if we code it to work on the vBa Advanced system to work inside the Forum 'root' and your portal is setup outside the root it would cause a database error. Unless, the block template is edited correctly.

By default all addons are coded for the CMPS installation in the root, the main modiifcation uses a js call that must always point to the forum root, not outside.

There are many flash-based mp3 players around the net, all with various features. The features you have described are already in development, image upload, etc. If you look back at the XML version, released in September this year, you'll see there's alot planned. As for skinned players, this is also been mentioned before, by uploading a skin via the AdminCP.

Obviously, some features will only be available in a commercial version - but this free one is still in its 'beta' stage, therefore some of the extras haven't yet been added, and a few bugs need fixing. But things like adding a single track at a time, has already changed. Once, we have all the small bugs fixed, it will be released as a full release and out of the 'beta' stage.

When you see releases like the forthcoming vbE-Center, then you may understand why modifications like this mp3 player are just the start of a number of 'imaginative' projects, we release. We already have a video, mp3, tv and radio project in development, which may also incorporate google and youTube.

Hi,

That is the way the player is interpreting the mp3 track data, I will check the code, and ammend ASAP.

There is an ipod skin, but not yet released for this version since it requires major changes in the code. It will be released at a later date, once this version is taken out of its beta stage.

That file cannot be accessed directly, it must be followed by a function or it will just show a white page. If the player is showing 'undefined' this either refers to no songs available from the playlist or you have not set the Usergroup Permissions correctly.

I don't have a donations button on the here, since I am working on a new modification which is a pure flash donation modification. At the moment, its running a barebones system, but it is fully 'live' you can see it working here (http://www.digitalport.co.uk/paypal3D.html).

As you will see, its purely cosmetic created in Flash, but hides all the normal details like email address used, etc. You'll probably notice it says the document is paypal3D.html... - this is something I'm working on - a 3D Check that sends directly to Paypal with username details, etc.

The check is actually 'live' and fully working with Paypal - therefore don't enter an amount and confirm unless you wish to do so.;)

Eventually this will become a vBulletin addon, at the moment its just a flash based donation system that opens up many other possibilities like shopping carts, etc. Just where it goes! :)

Hi Chris-777,

Yeah, thats one way of using this, using an iframe as opposed to the popup system. This was only adopted so people could carry on listening to music while surfing your website. The update will probably have a dfferent approach since we are thinking of adding a dropdown menu system with a popup, and an 'Add Tracks' link (multiple track adding).

Now, the big question - as for uploading mp3's from your desktop, this feature maybe incorporated in the paid version, but it will only work if your host supports php.ini override - what we have here is a 'bottle-neck' - am 'upload' feature can be added, but normal PHP restrictions only allow 2Mb of data, unless your host has this setup differently or you can change it using a php.ini file upto a maximum of 50Mb. It will be a feature that I'll add, but it will be 'host' dependent. Other details like bandwidth would also need to be considered.

No urls should be entered in a web url or it will cause problems. You should either delete spaces or replace them with an underscore, which is the correct way of entering urls.

Yes, some browsers will read it with spaces, but it is not a standard that is acceptable to all browsers. A space in IE will be changed to '%20' without the quotes, which is the equivilent of a space in another browser.

Flash cannot read spaces in urls imported into it either, what you'll find is you end up causing problems. Flash can read '%20' as a space, but not an actual space. It also varies on the flash version being used by the browser, not all browsers have the ability to read spaces.

So, you end up with 3 options.. use am underscore, no space at all or replace all spaces with %20 (but that looks messy).

Thanks very much for the quick reply. My site's for musicians to submit MP3s to, and many of them just don't have hosting. I've been using Cole's long-since-abandoned jukebox mod for the time being, and yours is just a lot nicer.

Is there a way right now to drop the playlists out and just have one master list? That, and being able to restrict the amount of MP3s uploaded/added by usergroup is really all I'd need for now to get this pushed out to my general masses.

Great mod all around and definitely looking forward to new versions. Like I said above, if you offer a premium version with more features, I'm all about it. :D

For the sake of testing stuff, here's what it looks like in an iframe using webtemplates. Rather sleek I must say, especially without the iframe border (left in so you can see it):

http://www.sevenstring.org/chris/mp3player_vbo.jpg

It looks nice for playing, but as you can see, when you go to add mp3s, there's a small issue (heheh) of two navbars. I think iframe might not work since there's no real way to tell the parent frame to switch within an iframe.

http://www.sevenstring.org/chris/mp3player_vbo2.jpg

Also, once you submit an MP3, there's no way to get back to the original screen from this screen here (simple edit, but you might want to plug that in):

http://www.sevenstring.org/chris/mp3player_vbo3.jpg

I'm just super-psyched to see a solid mp3/jukebox mod out for vB, I've been drooling over something like this for quite some time. :D

If it's not a silly question, is there a good way to just have the flash module centered in a page, navbars and all? I haven't had a ton of time to play with the URL but it'd be slick to be able to get this out of a webtemplate/iframe and just have it sit by itself with a normal header/navbar/footer.

Thanks very much for the quick reply. My site's for musicians to submit MP3s to, and many of them just don't have hosting. I've been using Cole's long-since-abandoned jukebox mod for the time being, and yours is just a lot nicer.

Is there a way right now to drop the playlists out and just have one master list? That, and being able to restrict the amount of MP3s uploaded/added by usergroup is really all I'd need for now to get this pushed out to my general masses.

Great mod all around and definitely looking forward to new versions. Like I said above, if you offer a premium version with more features, I'm all about it. :D

Currently, this would require major re-coding of the player, vb templates, and php files - since they are set to accept 5 playlists. The player wouldn't be too hard to adjust, but the php and vb templates, and admin side would require major re-work. especially allowing uploading through vBulletin.

The playlists are created by using just one php file, but the mp3 player adds extra commands depending on playlist required, however this could be changed, setting a default parameter within the player.

For the sake of testing stuff, here's what it looks like in an iframe using webtemplates. Rather sleek I must say, especially without the iframe border (left in so you can see it):

It looks nice for playing, but as you can see, when you go to add mp3s, there's a small issue (heheh) of two navbars. I think iframe might not work since there's no real way to tell the parent frame to switch within an iframe.

Also, once you submit an MP3, there's no way to get back to the original screen from this screen here (simple edit, but you might want to plug that in):

It's a simple case of just putting the player on a page, however it could be done by just creating a new vbulletin page with header and footer includes. I'll have a look tomorrow at coding a single page with the player embedded. Haven't got time now, its quite late in the UK...lol ;)

Heheh, no worries. If you're at all interested in doing a paid, branded version of this for my site, shoot me a PM and we can discuss. :D

xeon.htm is referring to a previous version of this modification. This version use no HTML - its all php and vbulletin templates, therefore the file you have referenced is not part of this modification.

That is listed as a 'Known Issue' - it's just a phrase missing from the AdminCP - nothing major, it doesn't affect functional settings. Bear in mind this is a 'beta' version, so we are listing problems and fixing them at the same time, so a new release will be available soon.

Any old data which you had saved in any plylist.xml file will need to be converted/entered manually now through the AdminCP MP3 Management System. The old XML system is not compatible with this new version, it has had many new enhancements/features added.

There's 2 ways - either directly via the Mp3 Management System in your AdminCP or via the popup (which requires the navbar edit listed in first post).

The modification is designed to allow internal or external mp3's to be linked. So you can use an external server, or just place them in a directory on your website, as long as you enter the full address to the mp3 file.

It's quite versatile, in this respect.:)

kool, and it be nice to be able to change the name of playlist to whatever we want

Agreed, looking forward to that as well. Otherwise nice mod...I'll have to run it on the dev server for awhile as I have some concerns about server load on a pretty large forum.

Hope to heck it pans out as my members would like this hack.

This is an issue due to any mp3 track title having either a single or double quote in the title. An update will soon be available which fixes this problem.

Hi Stavs16,

Because you are using a custom style - the navbar link would not go in your navbar template. It is more than likely to be in your header template. You need to find where your Calendar 'call' code is situated.

If you can give me the name of the style I maybe able to tell you where the code is.
:)

Hi there

Syrus is right if you are using a style other than vbulletins you would find the navbar links in the template called header

And would like some thing like this

<center>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td width="48" valign="top" background="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/border_left_bg.gif"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/border_left.gif" width="48" height="251"></td>
<td>

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td bgcolor="#000000"><div align="left"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/header_banner.jpg" width="707" height="175"></div></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td background="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/header_banner_under_bg.gif"><div align="left"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/header_banner_under.jpg" width="676" height="44"></div></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" background="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_bg.gif">
<tr>
<td width="151"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_left.gif" width="151" height="39"></td>
<td><div align="center"><a href="index.php"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_home.gif" width="55" height="39" border="0"></a></div></td>
<td><div align="center"><a href="usercp.php"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_usercp.gif" width="75" height="39" border="0"></a></div></td>
<td><div align="center"><a href="register.php"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_register.gif" width="88" height="39" border="0"></a></div></td>
<td><div align="center"><a href="calendar.php"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_calendar.gif" width="92" height="39" border="0"></a></div></td>
<td><div align="center"><a href="search.php"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_search.gif" width="80" height="39" border="0"></a></div></td>
<td width="151"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_right.gif" width="151" height="39"></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td height="24" background="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/links_under.gif">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>



<!-- content table -->
$spacer_open
$_phpinclude_output

then you would find

<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="calendar.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[calendar]</a></td>

then add after

<!—Mp3 Player Launch -->
<if condition="$show['member']">
<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="javascript:NewWindow=window.open('mp3playerindex.php?do=viewmp3playerpopup','new Win','width=500,height=500,left=0,top=0, toolbar=No,location=No,scrollbars=1,status=No,resizable=No,fullscreen=No');
NewWindow.focus(); void(0);">vbMp3 Player</a></td>
</if>
<!—End Mp3 Player Launch -->

hope this helps you
