The XEON Mp3 Player for vBulletin 3.6.X






Design: Syrus XL Media 2003-2007
Coding Update: vBmotion.com

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

Important: Supported only on Digital Port 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...&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 display
This 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:

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


Above add:


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

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:

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

After add:

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

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!

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

More players will available shortly.

Enjoy!

pardon my ignorance but i installed everything properly and it works fine in vb 3.6.4, but when i did the cmps install, i can't get it to do anything but what it says below:

The template code uses the supplied flashobject.js to call the xeon flash player, this fixes the issue with view the player in Internet Explorer 6.0 and above. There is some text in the code “Warning!!! To view this vbMp3 Player please enable JavaScript and Flash! “, this will only display if a person views your site with javascript and flash disabled. You can change this line of text to what you would like to display to visitors. The flashobject.js file will detect if the person has javascript and flash enabled, and will either display the text or the mp3 player automatically

anyone have any tips?

I'm assuming you have the vBa CMPS installed outside your forum 'ROOT', therefore the paths will be incorrect.

There are 2 file calls in the CMPS coding, namely flashobject.js and the xeon_mp3_beta.swf - if you prepend both these files with the full url, then that should fix this problem.

Installed and playing songs fine.... only thing is it doesnt show any more than 10 songs in each playlist for me - and there are 30 or more?
Anyone help me there with that?
Also - not sure if its a bug, but if you drag the play position seek bar to more than 1/2 way, it moves straight on to the next song in the playlist...
A very nice mod - the members love it

That's something I've not come across before... But I'll run a few tests.

Make sure all your mp3's do not have varying bitrates - this causes problems within flash files, from tracks not playing at correct speeds to seek bar acting abnormally.

hehe - that would be right - if something can happen to me and no else, it surely will! LOL ....seems to be my own "murphy's law"

The different bit rates thing is difficult to avoid, our forum is a "private" one therefore I dont have 'Approve New Mp3 Added' on.... how would I check the bitrate info of the songs linked to ??
thanks again - great support too cheers

PS latest vBulletin® Version 3.6.4 running .....

hehe... and I thought I was the only one with my own 'Murphys Law'

I'll look up a few free utilities that do this, some allow you to change the bitrate. However, mp3 bitrates cannot be changed server-side - unless there's a script out there I haven't seen yet. lol

I'll check back on this tomorrow, 2am here in the UK and I need some sleep.

Support should be a priority on any modifcation! Well, mine anyway!

Is it possible put a limit on who uploads what?

Example: I only want each user to be able to upload 1 MP3. When they upload a 2nd one .. it overwrites the 1st. So .. each user can have their favorite MP3 of the moment uploaded to the player. (and .. hopefully .. it will display the username beside the song or something)

If its not possible right now .. will it be possible in the near future?

Just to let you know mate - fixed the probs of not displaying more than 10 - it appears some of the songs added which have "character accents" in the names also does strange things
I did see the single/double quotes thing are a known bug, so I know you'll be looking at issues of filtering input anyway, hope this helps a little along the way.
heres some of the ones that were causing probs.
(as if blank spaces werent bad enough!)

/07%20-%20Estoy%20Aqu%ed.mp3', 'true', 0, 'Shakira,Estoy Aquí.', 1);
/06%20-%20Inevitable.mp3', 'true', 0, 'Shakira, Inevitable', 1);
/05%20-%20Ciega,%20Sordomuda.mp3', 'true', 0, 'Shakira, Ciega,Sordomuda', 1);
/04%20-%20Moscas%20en%20la%20Casa.mp3', 'true', 0, 'Shakira,MoscasenlaCasa.', 1);
/03%20-%20D%f3nde%20Est%e1n%20Los%20Ladrones.mp3', 'true', 0, 'Shakira,DóndeEstánLosLadrones', 1);
/02%20-%20Si%20te%20Vas.mp3', 'true', 0, 'Shakira,Si-te-Vas', 1);

fixing this also seemed to stop the glitch of jumping to next track if the seek bar was dragged along past halfway..

Anyway - just thought I'd post this in case it helps with your debugging
cheers syrus

This was mentioned in a previous post - I need to update the main post. Flash doesn't parse the urls correctly if they contain 'white space' so it gets converted, which causes many problems.

Nothing is ever easy! Thanks anyway, Kiwi!

Wow this looks really nice and id love to try and use this.


ok... it seems i am the only one having trouble. I think i installed and uploaded correctly. I uploaded the MP3 and set the URL as
http://www.xxxxx.com/mp3/song1.mp3, and it plays correctly if i browse that page using firefox.

I think the player is getting a feed because it does say Song 2- Blur on the player, but it doesnt play anything. It says Total in PlayList 11) and the clock doenst move from 00:00.

The .mp3 works fine on my windows media player as well.

Heres the setting im playing it at.
MP3 ID---URL---------------------------------Streat-Buffer -----
1 http://www.xxxxxxxx.com/mp3/song1.mp3 True ----0----- Song 2 - Blur 1


Would anybody have a slightest clue what i have overlooked?

ok. It didnt work last night. I woke up this morning without changing a thing, and its working now.

But now, the problem is that the track is playing maybe 50% faster than it should. Would i just have to reupload the song?

This is a sign that the mp3 bitrate is of an incorrect value, and flash cannot read it correctly, therefore it will play it wrong - majority of the times this will be the speed.

For mp3's to work correctly, I would suggest a 128k bitrate for all tracks. Lower than this will become noticeable on playback. With a 128k bitrate, most mp3's tend to be around 3-5Mb in size.
