Who wants a new Media Library?
by HellRZR
20 Jun 2011 13:50

Good morning all,

I am presenting using 8WayRun.Com - Media Library. As you are all aware this is a great mod and a great asset to any website unfortunately the developer has left the mod and the VB community as well.

So I took it upon myself to find a developer (Lancerforhire) who would be interested in making a new version of this mod.

Lancerforhiore has done private work for me and I can attest to his professionalism and the way he supports his mods.

Of course this WILL NOT be free, it requires me to find 15 people who are willing to invest 50 dollars each.

Benefits:

New version of the mod, with new functionality and supported!
We will release the mod after its developed to the general community.

If you are interested, reply here, I will send you a PM and let you know where you can Paypal your contribution. You will only send your money once we have all the 15 people we need.

Any takers?

I'm all for paying for a similar mod to the 8WayRun.Com - Media Library mod and I already sent a PM to Lancerforhire. What I'm not willing to do is pay for something sight unseen, which I think is being requested here. Am I wrong (I hope that I am)?

All I am looking for is commitment from 15 people, of course Lancerforhire will want some kind of payment prior to starting the project, and I am sure you agree that this is the norm.

The development progress will be visible on a second forum so it will be pretty "hands on" :). I typically use a certain escrow service for projects like this but the requests are usually from one person or company, not 15.

At any rate, we are assembling in a private forum to map out the mod before anything happens; we just need to gather the 15 contributors first. This is going to be an interactive development process, not just click "Send Payment" and wait. :p

I agree with you but I also know that some payment should be made before hand, it's simply a better logistics approach to the project.

Please right me down as I have also contacted Lancerforhire via pm. I agree that is the norm. I am willing to give 50% before hand and the other 50% upon completion.

One question I have is to what extent will this new modification be like 8way media library? Will we be able to transfer all the videos we have now in Media Library? Along with all the playlists and such?

One suggestion I have is to gather ideas to add to this script. Media Library is a good script but it is incomplete in some areas. Will there be a chance to add new features or simply rewrite media Library?

We (our other co-founder and I) have been gathering for some time a "layout" if you will of what a video script should be. We have been studying different script from different sites and gathered all the best features from all of them. Will we be able to participate these studies to perhaps include them in the new script? I feel we all have a better chance of producing something extraordinary if we all pitch in and contribute.

pm sent Lancerforhire :)

Thus far, we have 5 people who are interested, we need 10 more.

Sounds good to me, specially the interactive bit, can't wait to see what we all come up with. :)

P.S.: We should have a list on the first post of the people who are interested so we can all keep count. Just saying so we can all help move this along and be on the same page.

HellRZR 20 Jun 2011 22:27

Lancer can you provide me the names of the people we have thus far, I will update the first post as requested.

Count me as one of the 15.

Lancerforhire & HellRZR you know I am in and would be happy to pay, it is a steal at that price

Sorry I was unclear about this previously; I quoted this like a regular project; the 15 contributions of $50 are for creating a brand new, stable media library mod with the same features. The new mod will clearly have optimizations, performance improvements, and of course and a script to transfer over the media data from the old mod.

Any features past that will require more time/labor on my part than the initial quote and will have to be paid for separately; I want to make sure everyone is clear on that. I am still supporting the modification for free in regards to bug fixes and vB updates, which is the reason we are doing this in the first place. When I say the committee is mapping out the mod (in the context of no more than the initial contributions of $50), I mean mapping within the existing feature set like minor improvements, "move X over there", "change this to X", etc.

Understood. Thank you for the clarification, we're looking forward to the project.

List update in the first post.

@lancerforhire - Thanks for clearing this up, the last thing we need is misinformation.
