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]

Redirecting...



ERROR: The file is too big or you did not include a filename

Click here if your browser does not automatically redirect you.


fix that and i will love you forever. or atleast tell me how to fix it. is it in PHP's settings ? i run my own webserver so i got all the files

also multiple uploads or multiple add boxes in admincp would make this 10X better also

questions...

Wow read it all... but I didnt see answer for these questions or they were not clear to me... Please some one answer these for me.
the new updated file... can it...
protect folders (I dont want pepole downloading the mp3 files)
pagenation (you know page one page two)
what is the upload limit from the browser. I need to know. It is the only real reason for me to install it.
can users have a (radio station) like my own list. (play random or in order with in this list if it is possable)
can the player go thru random list or catagories. (keep playing)

I have installed wimpy on a customers site. I would like to know if I can use this instead of windowsmedia player.
Yes I know you do not know what it is or studdied it. but it takes a commandline. like winpy.php?www.somwhere.com/themp3.mp3
so if I got the line that goes to windowsmediaplayer this will make the site VERY powerfull since the site has it own custom player almost like lauch.yahoo.com but better.

Thank you.

I have a unique situation, and I'd like to know how to implement my system configuration on this hack.

I have the forum servers behind a load-balancer. I have a separate server dedicated to emai, chat and music. That server is outside the load-balancer. I want to put the music (ALL music, not just midis) on the music server directly, and refernce them from the JB hack. I want users to be able to upload songs directly to the music server as well.

Can I do that, and if so how?

Thanks!

EDIT: My other server has it's own URL, like:

http://Server2.myDomain.com

Can't figure out...admins and mods can give an url with "Change to manual data entry." to a mp3 elsewhere but how to let members do that. Great would be a swift access to a data entry for this for adjustable usergroups.

you could use one of the remote hosting option but then your members cant upload

How about this:

Members upload the files to a "temp" directory on the database server. Then I run a CRON job every hour to copy new uploads over to the other server automatically, and delete them from the database server.

Can your hack be set to ONLY look to the second server to play, but allow upload to the primary server (as normal)?

trafix,

Have you heard from the admins how (or if) they plan to correct the vote tallies for those of us who voted for Jukebox for Hack of the Month, but now appear to have their votes credited to a different hack?

Hey T, how can I add a extra column to the table where all the songs are... I want a "Purchase" feature linking to amazon or some where you can purchase the artists CD... go check out what I've done.. http://bb.hiphop.org/vb_jukebox.php

Also is there anyway to prevent users from listening to songs, before they have a certain amount of posts....



PS: You got my vote for HotM February, everyone else that's got support and runs the mod needs to vote aswell, this jukebox has proven to be a very reliable and viewer friendly accepted feature at my site and I'm sure others aswell... so yeah vote
