Bandster for phpBB back in development

Post by juliekate » Fri Nov 25, 2005 7:13 pm

Hi all,

After about a year hiatus, and ripping down my Bandster music mod, I've decided to reopen it due to some schedule changes and offers of help.

Currently I have one site administrator who will keep the board running during development and one tester/junior coder.

I'm writing to see if there are any people out there interested in also helping. I currently need the following:

- Lead Developer Mentor. As I'm not exactly a professional, but have spent many hours developing and working in phpBB, I would like someone(s) to perhaps be receptive to me emailing/pming questions about running a development team. Things like CVS organization, team organization, anything and everything you can recommend to help things go smoothly with several coders on one project.

- Development help. People to assist with plug-in modules for Bandster and general security, code fat-trimming and troubleshooting.

I have long loved the phpBB community and the help I've found here. Thanks to you guys, I've come farther in developing than I ever would have alone.

Since there doesn't seem to be any active music mods for phpBB I would like to do the best job possible in having at least one alternative for the community.

If you ever have any suggestions for me, books, links, bla bla, please send them to me.

Official development page is [SPAM].

Thanks guys :) Looking forward to getting back into this awesome community.

Kate

Yeah cfmanager used to run Music Online Mod but I think he's abandoned it. I don't know of any other music mods so I figured I should keep developing this one. I've been out of phpbb for over a year so I've a lot to catch up on with mod writing, but suddenly I find myself with time on my hands :)

Fine. :)
BTW.. you asked..

probably because you should open a DEV/ALPHA Topic into the MODs DEV Forum with a direct download link for it.. i guess. ;)

OH!! LOL :oops:

Thanks for the heads up. I had one in there but it'd been locked for abandonment last year. Appreciated!

Awesome! welcome back!! I look forward to this. will you be adding RealAudio? there are a couple mods out there including cfmanager's old one that used outdated RealAudio code. that's why it never worked in the first place. and is probably one of the reasons you did not use RA in Bandster.

Well I hope this helps... it's an updated version of RealAudio's code.
I use it in a mod that streams live TV stations. it works alone side with WMA too. video or song.

Hi Peter! Thanks ;)

Right now we're using Windows Media Player and I'm contemplating adding a flash player as an option. Real Audio is also nice but I've had problems streaming video using Firefox. RA also requires it to be installed (correct??) in order to work. Flash is light, works with php, and can handle video, audio and any other parameters I wanna slap in there. The odds of people having flash in there are much higher than RA.

Also, I think development stopped on Foing and I've always loved their flash player. Maybe the best of both worlds?

Please keep non-coding related discussion in your Bandster MOD thread. This forum is for coding help and the like. Thanks. :wink:

This thread went off-topic anyway; also, I don't think it'd be proper to allow threads announcing that the MOD author is continuing development (why not just create a new thread or bump the one, either of which is in MODs in Development?)... so, I'm locking this for now.

Once any of you have actual specific coding questions, feel free to create your new thread for it. :wink:
