Due to high volume of PMs request for support, plus it's unwise to repeat an answer over and over in different PMs therefore, please note :
  • In-Topic Support priority is given to Everyone who has installed
  • Private Message Support is given only to Contributors, Helpers, Donators and Beta Test Volunteers
Introduction
This is the SEO friendly yet Advanced AJAX powered Musicbox by DnP Network™. It is found by Silveryhat in the late 2008 and early 2009. The original version was first use way back in the '06 or '07 with limited functions and no ajax support. A serious upgrade and rebuilding have been made few weeks ago for this release. Main goal was to make it faster and compatible with all vBulletin forums. This project is the hard work of Silveryhat and DnP Administrator of DnP Network™, we wish to bring the best to the vB community.



DnP Instant! Musicbox is free for non-commercial, non-profit use. Otherwise, please read the Notice at the end of this post.
Requirements
  • Host supports AJAX
  • Administrator skill level MUST be intermediate, for you must know what you are doing. 70% of the issues was because Admin does not have a clue of the host configuration and what the notice tries to tell them when a problem occurs. Also the other 20% is because Admin does not read the 2-Step Installation Guide carefully. I will not give support for such situations.
  • vBulletin from 3.5.x to 3.8.x
Simplified 2-Step Installation :
1. Upload all files and folders under the "upload" folder to your forum root.

2. Run forum_root/install_dnp_musicbox.php to setup new tables to your database. This little friendly webpage is also AJAX supported. Delete it after you have finished installing the data.



[Note] : For Unix host, please make sure the folder you have uploaded the musicbox content to is CHMOD to 666 or 777 (writable) if you receive a permission error during installation.
And, That's all for the installation step!

IF you have installed successfully :
Read HOW-TO & F.A.Q
Mark as Installed for Support - Vote for it.
Nominate for MOTM.
Was the Installation Process easy ?
Customizations :
  • Now proceed to AdminCP » DnP Musicbox Options to add new categories, artists (optional), and albums (optional).
  • Use the Configuration Editor from Musicbox Homepage » Administrator's Quick Panel to customize the your personal musicbox !
There is no manual template change needed, unless you would want a musicbox link to show on navigation bar, too.

Access forum_root/music.php to start your musicbox!

Brief

Member's Instant! Musicbox:
These are great boards that have supported the development of DnP Instant! Musicbox. Some of them has donated money or purchased the branding-free license which greatly encourages further growth of the musicbox itself. I appreciate your kindness and I hope your forum will extend to its best.

All Updates and History log

Notice: Default theme of musicbox and images are properties of DnP Network™, they should not be used any where else but the musicbox without permission. DnP Instant! Musicbox Copyright notice is not to be removed without a purchase of branding-free version else your domain and forum will be reported to Piracy Report.

Paid Request & Branding-free License:
Paid request is optional and available up to demand, because a few of us would want to extend the musicbox ability to another level. Click here to check out what is available.

Media Copyrights Infringement :
Please do not abuse the use of musicbox to create an illegal source of music. It's all your responsibility when it comes to these matters.

Please be aware : For every Modification, there are always bugs somewhere that the author have not yet found them himself. The same gravity applies for DnP Instant! Musicbox. Though I have manage to solve all the issues before anyone notices, there is still a great chance it's not perfectly bug free. Even vBulletin itself. I urge any kind souls who will contribute their time and effort, will help me improve it for every coming version. Bug reports, Ideas, Feedbacks are truly welcomed.

Update : From weekly to monthly per patch. Depend on requests, feedbacks and amount of bugs found.

2-Step Upgrade:
1. Upload all files and folders under the "upload" folder to your forum root.

2. Run forum_root/install_dnp_musicbox.php to upgrade tables. Current data will not be lost, only new columns are installed.

[Note] : For Unix host, please make sure the folder you have uploaded the musicbox content to is CHMOD to 666 or 777 (writable) if you receive a permission error during installation.
(..did I just copy almost exactly the two steps of installation here ._. )
Additional Plugins (varied authors) :
  1. Comment Block on Forum Home Index plugin (free)
  2. Who's Online Plugin for DnP Instant! Musicbox (free)
  3. DnP Instant! Musicbox's AJAX New Thread on Forum Home Index
  4. Media Block on Forum Home for DnP Instant! Musicbox (Display music list on your forum homepage - Simple version - Free)
  5. Posting Multiple Media Plugin (Quick way to post multiple media to musicbox database $1)
  6. DnP Instant! Box and Playlist on Forum Index (Display music list on your forum homepage - Advanced version - $5)
  7. Branding-Free License Purchase (Remove copyright line at bottom of page and allow the commercial use - $1)

Enjoy!

Bottom line - About Search Engines, Do they really crawl the content?:
Try this or this for examples.
My site rank is not high enough to beat other big sites, so I would narrow down the search to show that google does see the content of Musicbox.
Keyword : Leaving on a jet plane dnp or Honest Graduation Song dnp, as well as Baby I would dnp.
Here is the site search where it displays everything Google has gathered from the Musicbox : allinurl:silveryhat.com/delynie/music.php

Hello,

The Musicbox Setting Editor /music.php?do=editsettings does not update my settings after a fresh installation.

My forum is installed on domain root, and I have checked all files/folders and CHMOD 777 correctly.

Any help?

Did you guys miss this part o.o ?



The old buttons are replaced by the new instant guide. It should has every information you need to post a proper media link.

Though your second URL is the correct one SSG.D, let me know if you have found that feature in the ss above.

To sebil : I need to take a look of your board

I guess you missed an explanation or I forgot to post it here. Put "music/ngheplaylist.gif" in the setting editor and you're done

This step will take care of the situation, just follow loosely

The musicbox has the built in option to define admin group. For the First time and only first time you need to do this if your default admin group is not 6.
Download the DnPMusicbox_Settings.php from your server, open and find

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

Change 6 to your admin group id. Save and reupload to your server. From now on you can use the Configurations editor and never have to repeat this step again. Unless you change the admin group again .

Minor mistake, not sure if it's been mentioned: "Album" in the ACP is typed "ALbum".

It's not a big deal. I almost didn't mention it, but I figured I'd give you a heads up.

(v1.0.4)


Also, you should go through it with IE... not everything shows up correctly. (Try uploading a song and you'll see.)

Also, Tried 4 youtube videos, and only 2 will upload. I don't know what the issue is since i did all 4 the same. Tried a myspace video and it accepted it, but won't play.

A proper link to add for youtube is like this :http://www.youtube.com/v/CwyhpIlGs4g
That means you must click Send sample to URL box, then the code at the end.
