Hi again ^^

Rick, why not getting an account on DynDNS (or other) and coding the
Cookies with the static domain? This would be great for people who
won't allow Cookies permanently and freely (like me ^_^).

Of cource, than you have to set up your router/modem to renew the data
on DynDNS every (re)conect, or set up a planned task/CronTask to do this
in an automatical way.

Just a suggestion... ^^

Greetings, Chiaki

You're right, that's a good idea!

Links to youtube/nicovideo videos in song information.
This can be user submited links if you want.
Should be quite simple. If the songs in the database has ID's on them, you can create a separate database that deals with a list of what videos are with that song.

Here's a slight example of what i mean:
Code:
ID | Song
---+---------------
1  | Song1.mp3
2  | Song2.mp3
3  | Song3.mp3
4  | Song4.mp3


ID | Video
---+---------------
1  | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRug5KwKauw
1  | http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm982882
2  | http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm1142379
2  | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPS1J2YQKWg


This should be simple enough to implement.
on the song info, the video's can be a drop down list to save space on the page visualy with a "go" button that the user would click on to go to the video. If you do decide to add in user submitted links, dont forget to add in a button that says something along the lines of "Add a video" and a button that is along the lines of "Report video to administrators".

While our community is small, bringing next to zero trouble with any out of the blue videos, I think user submitted videos should not be allowed. (My opinion is loose, and wants to regret it)

Topping this with it "being simple enough to add", you're having to store all the songs as variables and then having to provide links. With a near amount of 3200 songs, this will be extremely tedious and boring. The alternative would be to add a function to "Search YouTube with This Artist And Song Name". There would be a very simple script that would replace the artist and song name with the one that is currently playing (or selected)

Now, at this point, this sounds very familiar of something else currently working right now too (But does not satisfy what the suggestion is asking).
The "Find Lyrics // encyclopaedia " when you select a song comes to mind. Meaning, if this script talked about above would go into effect, it would probably go here.

I've always thought it would be cool if there was a little box you could click below the chat box that would play a little "bing" sound, something quiet but noticable to tell theres an update on the yggdrasil shoutbox.

Also, to add some potential Alanet might like on his suggestion, there could just be a commentary spot on each song when you open it up to post videos (hint: youtube) or comment (which i know will just be "OMG I LUV THIS SONG!")
. While i think this function will never be used or just be a waste of memory and space, it's up to alanet if he likes it or not.

I think it's an interesting suggestion. I don't think it'd be all that hard to implement, really but I can think of some possible weaknesses:

* You'd have to watch out for crazy "Rickroll" video links (or worse)

* Youtube videos get deleted or pulled down on a regular basis, which would lead to dead links.

* Video links would encourage people to stop listening to the station and go listen to Youtube!

User-submitted links could also be used to point to lyrics and other info. I'd have to have a manageable number of users with power to do this, and keep an eye on them and take away privileges from anyone who misbehaves.

I've also long wanted to have a "keyword" feature where songs could be tagged with searchable keywords. Users might be given the ability to add those, too.

I'm sorta thinking about this.

Hi ^^

Quote:

Thats why only links to search results should be displayed. There's a large
number of dead and broken links on the net, so let's do our best to not
add any more dead links to the community :-)

I wont agree with this opinion. A radio station plays "endless", on youtube
you'll have to navigate manually from one video to the next. Also, if you
follow a link to youtube the video is showing in the browser, while the radio
station continues to play in Winamp or other non-browser software. Most
people wouldn't turn off Winamp just to watch a (mostly short) video.

Greetings, Chiaki~

Adding to this. Get enough music and you won't need to rely on others for listening pleasures.

i.e. get enough songs, stop streaming.

Better for the person overall, but hurts the radio station. When the radio station hosts links, thats kind of killing off the people who appreciate whats being offered to them (the stream). You can search for it your own, but if the station is offering the ability first-hand to silently kill itself, that's pretty saddening :(

I wouldn't say THAT. Watching music videos is different from listening to music. Sometimes it's fun to see the original artist singing the song, or to watch anime clips along with the music. There are often translated lyrics in the videos, also. And you don't download a collection of Youtube videos for listening to later. Well, unless you're HARDCORE.

That being said, I always turn off Winamp when watching Youtube videos, because otherwise there's two things playing at once, and that drives me nuts.

It would be nice to hear a 30-90sec sample (depending on the length of the song) from the songs on the song info page ^^
Offcourse its after when you can figure out the best way to rate/add to fav. the song on the info page :)
