Not Supported DB Changes  

I want to thank everyone who has supported the original release of this hack and for all the suggestions to make this hack even better
I have spent days on adding all these new features and would like to thank the people who have assisted me to get some of these function to work.

Its back after a long time

This hack will add a whole new dimention to your forums with a Jukebox

3 file edit
1 template edit
1 new db table
1 db table alteration

This hack uses and includes a copy of the [HIS] Hack Installer System (Build 3)
released by Link14716 and can be found here --> http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=71542
My thanks to Link for his one on one time in building the install files for the VB Jukebox

General Features

* The ability to play audio and movie formats - The script will detect both .mpg or .mpeg files and open the media player. If an audio format is played then the media player will stay invisable.

Admin Features

* Upload songs from your browser.
* Unlimited genres.
* Manual data entery for when the uploader fails or for large files.
* At a click will automaticly generate a new thread announcing a song in the jukebox.

* Usergroup permissions for:
--> 1) Who can listen to songs.
--> 2) Who can upload songs.
--> 3) Who can rate songs.

Front End Features

*Members can upload songs, these songs are not available in the jukebox until admin aproval (optional email notification available).
* Callapsable genres (only displays genres that have active songs in them).
* Members can rate songs.

Future Possible Functions

* members favs, this will allow members to add songs to their own favs list and if i can work it out i will try to make it so they can play their favs from start to finish.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR REMOTE SONG HOSTING

OPTION 1

In the admin options where it asks for the folder name enter the full path to the where the songs are stored eg "www.something.com/music folder" NO backslash after.
The Downside to this is that your members canrt upload or add songs to the jukebox and movie files will not work.

OPTION 2
In vb_jukebox.php find each instance of


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

replace with

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then enter the full url into the song file field for each song.

A Tutorial for manual install can be found here http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=76050

Please Click install

This hack will always be free however you can donate to [email protected]

Is it a change to the template or to the code?

I found this easy to do by changing this line of code in the JUKEBOX template:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

TO:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

BTW, I have installed this on two boards. 'Wish I could click the install button twice! Thanks, again.

A bit. All we want to have is that a member just give an url to any songfile on different servers. xxx.anywhere.org/test.mp3 or xxx.somewhere-else.com/test2.mp3 for example

Works ok Only we have to login in admin or mod cp and can only add an url if choosen 'manual data entry'

Now it would be ideal when members could do this to since there is an aproval by admins or mods to prevent troubles.

the permissions groups are located in the usergroup menu of your admin panel.

Expland the usergroup mane in the admin navigation and click on "Usergroup Manager" from there edit each usergroup setting the jukebox permissions that are listed near the bottom of the list


Done!

I'm set to members only.. not the "credits required" setting and im still getting minus plays.. it has to be something where they go over a certain ammount of plays, because I get over 200 to 500 plays per song..

Okay, I know we never seemed satisfied ... always asking for more :nervous: ... so, forgive my audacity, Trafix. But would there be any possibility of you adding the capacity for Flash files to be uploaded and played?

I know it's a whole different player. There is a hack by Erwin to display flash movies; however, it does not include an uploader for users. And the file extension must be truncated to drop the .SWF on all file names.

I think it would be a great addition to the Jukebox, so I hope you will consider it.
===========

On different issue regarding current video file extensions ... you said:

...we can include other file extensions if you need to.
how about .avi,.asf,.wmv,.mov?

Thanks!
