LIVE 'Now Playing' Hack
Mod Version: 1.00, by N!ck (Member) N!ck is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2008 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 6
Released: 26 Oct 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

What it does:
With this hack, users can globally update what song they are playing at a particular time. All they need to do is click a button at the top of your forum and a little window pops up where they can update the song title and artist (very convenient for surfing your forums or even another site!). The song title and artist are displayed next to each of their posts and in their profile IF they have updated it less than 15 minutes ago (we don't want a live script to be not current!).

Current version: 1.0.1b

Enjoy! Screenshots will follow.

it IS live! look at the hack title
it just happens that i made it show in the postbit / getinfo templates because those are the only logical places i could think of. it IS live, though.

New Version: 1.0.1b

This fixes some problems with apostrophes. To upgrade, remove the code from steps 3 and 4, then reapply these steps and replace nowplaying.php with the updated one included in the zip.

Kind of a pain to update this thing every 2-3 minutes....Nice idea, but too much work for me.

That would be awesome if Winamp would update it, but I would think that it would require a dB access, and update too many times per minute or so...

Not if you made WA3 just query a script every time the song is over...and that's usually like 3-4 minutes per song so it's not that bad really.

But I suck at WA3 plugins

this is actually what i had in mind, but i can't do Winamp plugins - period. i'm too stoopid. whoever can accomplish this is a real american hero.

it would need to access the following url:
http://url.of.your/forums/nowplaying.php?title=SONG_TITLE&artist=ARTIST
SONG_TITLE and ARTIST, of course, would be replaced with url-encoded song title and artist.

the load would be quite minimal (updating at the end of each song, of course!), and this would, as an added bonus, keep track of people who are online even when they aren't on your site.

what i envision is a plugin that uses the winamp mini-browser to keep open and update the page. it would LOOK just like normal (meaning it would appear you've filled in the form), but it would automatically update the information (obviously) by opening the page with different query strings.

anyway, good luck to anyone who's ballsy enough to try this.
