Innovative Small mp3 Player BB Code

By:


This BB Code will allow users to have a small mp3 player in:
  • Posts in the forums
  • Signatures i.e. Song of the day/week etc.
  • anywhere you can use BB Code Tags

I found this while browsing: http://www.phpbb3bbcodes.com as I have some phpBB boards of my own and was tinkering as usual . It was rather simple to add as a BB Code to VBulletin and did not take much time to make it work in vB via the {param} tags etc!

Credit for the Code goes to phpbb3codes.com and the creator of the .swf player i.e. djgalix!

Time to install: 1-2 mins

Instructions:
  • Download the .zip and extract the SWF player
  • Upload the player_mp3.swf into your forum root folder
  • Add new BB code:

AdminCP --> Custom BB Codes --> Add New BB Code

Title: mp3
Tag: mp3
Replacement:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Use {option} = NO

*The Player .swf file HAS to be in your forums ROOT folder, this will make it NOT visible in AdminCP as that is another folder i.e. admincp folder BUT it will display FINE in the forums via FireFox and Internet Explorer! (Thanks for the catching that bug where it did not display joh!)

Now use the tags [mp3]Full Song URL Here![/mp3]

*Experienced Users can take the code replacement and hard code into forums where desired!

Ahh HostGator, I bet it's the mod securities they have enabled on your server, if you have had other problems (specifically with vBa CMPS or vBa Links etc) then you must have them disable the mod securities. This mod also will not work if you have DJ's AME Mod installed.

For some who cannot get the mod to work etc, it is usally the AME mod, a Mod Security enabled on your server per your host OR something in your .htaccess file.

If you have an htaccess file add this to it:


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

Replace the yoururl with your url, note I left the .com so if you are .net or .org change that, also leave the www as-is unless you have something setup like forums.yoursite.com etc etc.

Hope that helps some, and remember to always PM me if I do not reply promptly to your posts.

Not working for me... if I use a full http:// address the player does not show up. If I put the full URL in quotes, the player shows up but doesn't play. However, if I just use a relative path on my server, it seems to work just fine.

Any ideas?

Great idea for a hack, but can I legally play some song that i don't have copyrights too.. doesn't that just open up the door for legal issues? I really don't write songs very much LOL. So what could i play then?

See below, if you have the AME mod installed it will conflict and check your htaccess, if neither of those work PM me when you see this .

I've commented on this before and I too do not like illegal activities etc, you can use this at your own risk, I use songs that I have purchased online via Itunes and other online stores so I feel it is my right to play them but again think of it this way... if you find a url of a song perhaps off somewhere like beemp3.com and you find a DL link with a .mp3 extension just give that as the URL and guess what your just hotlinking to a song off another site, you won't be hosting one single song There's always more than one way to skin a cat! (I would never, LOVE cats )

No, unfortuantely there is not... I won't be silly and say use the volume control on your speakers ROFL but instead try this mod...

Use the search on here guys & gals

See directly below and PM me if nothing works!

AND FYI for everyone, HostGator uses many more mod securities than some other hosts so if your having multiple problems with this, or other modifications specifically vBa CMPS and vBa Links you should have them temp disable to test and confirm that is in fact the problem.

I can't get this to work in internet explorer. The player shows up fine but when you click play nothing plays. I know it's working because I use firefox and there are no problems there.

Also it is not my internet explorer as I tried with your demo and that works fine too.

EDIT: Got this working now.

AME installed = This will not play, at least that's what EVERYONE with the AME mod has told me in regards to this mod working and it won't but personally I would keep AME hands down vs just a MP3 player HOWEVER check the post above... ok wait here's the link, try this mp3 player and see if it will work with the AME mod, I use this one too and love it especially the volume control and description! http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=170794

Sure

You can WRAP the code with...


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

Example:


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

Where # is replaced by the forum ID you wish to display it in

And sigs... did you mean... Show this ONLY in signatures AND in a certain forum OR each different? - Let me know and I'll point you in the right direction with that too .
