Audio MP3 Flash Player

Recommended Posts

Hello community,
based on the freely available flash mp3 player (http://flash-mp3-player.net) I set a module, which creates a field to store mp3-audio files in the backend and an audio player in the frontend.

mp3 files can be added by drag and drop. The audio player is configurable in module settings. (Size, colors, display of buttons, volume control, etc.)

About third party Code

How to install

download the 2 Files:
http://flash-mp3-player.net/players/maxi/download/
http://flash-mp3-player.net/medias/player_mp3_maxi.swf
http://flash-mp3-player.net/players/multi/download/
http://flash-mp3-player.net/medias/player_mp3_multi.swf

Download from github the module, unzip, copy module and the 2 swf Files in a folder /Audio_MP3/ and add the folder to your /site/modules/ directory.

Click *check for new modules* in ProcessWire Admin Modules screen. Click *install* for the module labeled: "Audio_MP3".

Now you will be on the module config screen. Please make note of the config options and set as you want.


How to use

Add the Audio field to your Template in Setup > Templates.
Add the following code to the template file
to get the title list:

$modules->Audio_MP3->player['title'];
 

to get the player:

$modules->Audio_MP3->player['code'];
 



Create a page using the Template.

Drag and drop mp3 or mp3.zip files in the audio field in the Page-Edit-Area.


How it works

If you store just one File in the Page-Edit-Area the Maxi-Player will be loaded. For 2 or more files the Module will switch to Multi-Player. If you want an alternative title, you can put it in the Description-field of the Audio Field, which is visible after the file upload.


Module Configuration

- width: Forces the video width.
- height: Forces the video height. //only Maxi-Player only one file stored
- volume: The initial volume, between 0 and 200. By default set to 50
- showstop: 1 to show the STOP button.
- showinfo: 1 to show the INFO button.
- showvolume: 1 to show the VOLUME button.
- showloading: 'alway','never','autohide') to show the LOADING bar// By default set to 'alway'
- showinfo: 1 to show the INFO button.
- buttonwidth: The buttons width. By default set to 30.
- volumewidth: The width of the VOLUME button. By default set to 30.
- volumeheight: The height of the VOLUME button. By default set to 10
- loadingcolor: The color of loading bar in hex format without #//default: ffff75
- sliderovercolor: Hover color of the bar in hex format without #
- buttonovercolor: Hover color of buttons in hex format without #

feel free to add more configuration options to the module. More information here:

Hi Kixe, sorry not much time, (will look at it later)

//for example: 
wire()->addHookProperty("Page::player", null, "PageHookPlayer");

function PageHookPlayer($param) {
   // your code
   if('code'==$param) {
      // show player ...
}

don't know if you can use it like $page->player['code'], but you can use it like $page->player('code').

@ horst
Thank you for your help, will try out later. Have still to learn more OOP and the PW's Api.

@ kongondo & horst
Thanks. Had a look at Horst's  audio profile. Well done, looks nice.

I prefer the flash-mp3-player before using Yahoos and Google players, because it is more simple in layout and can be adaptet very individual to customer pages.

Like discribed in the helloworld.module of ryan I put the following code to the module:

   public function init() {
        $this->addHookProperty('Page::player', $this, 'render');
    }

    protected function render() {
        $embedCode = "... code ..."  
        $titles = " ... code ..."
        $event->return = array('code'=>$embedCode, 'title'=>$titles);
    }

 

and that in the template

echo $page->player['code'];

 

But still doesn't work. What is wrong here?

wow that's great. I'll try to help out when i get more time.

I was trying to turn this one into a plugin:

http://tympanus.net/codrops/2012/12/04/responsive-touch-friendly-audio-player/

it's really nice and html5, but the problem is that html5 audio isn't quite there yet...

so then i ended up using soundmanager2 which is super reliable (and in mass use now on sites like soundcloud) – it's cross platform and does hybrid html5 and flash; Since i'm doing mostly responsive design, doesn't make so much sense for me to do flash only; but i'll look at this module and see if it can be modded for a different player;

one reason why i didn't bother making a module is because it's easy to setup the template to output the desired markup for any given player, but then you also have to remember to include all the scripts and stylesheets and when applicable the flash objects etc,, so i can see a module being a good thing to house everything, and make it easier to re-use in different sites.

it would be good to eventually have audio modules for Soundmanager2, jPlayer, and maybe mediaelement.js; the latter 2 support video;

got it:

public function init() {
   $this->addHookProperty('Page::player', $this, 'render');
}

protected function render($event) {
   $page = $event->object;
   $embedCode = "... code ..." 
   $titles = " ... code ..."
   $event->return = array('code'=>$embedCode, 'title'=>$titles);
}

Hi Kixe,

the Local Audio Files MP3-DB isn't meant to be a Player. The only reason why there is the YahooPlayer in it, is to show some of the possible functionallity of the DB and because it could be embedded with only one line of code. (lazy me)

The Local Audio Files MP3-DB was created to manage your MP3-Collection and let you import hundreds or thousands songs at once, and read the ID3-Tags to build the DB. It gives you some comprehensive tools to assist in building forms and playlists and that like. But all frontend stuff, including Player embedding has to be done by your self. So if you have some time you may want have a closer look to it and may be than you find it useful to setup your Audio MP3 Flash Player on top of it. (This was my intention when writing it) :)

Anyway, nice to see other audio related work here!

Welcome motionmindz,

you have two install options:
1) Go to setup/Modules Manager (if module: 'Modules Manager' is installed) and click 'refresh', then choose from the list 'Flash MP3 Player' and click 'install'.Done.

2) conventional install (choosed by you?)

Check if all the following files exists under the path: site/modules/Audio_MP3/

Audio_MP3.module
player_mp3_maxi.swf
player_mp3_multi.swf

Check if you have file-access to these files?

Go to: admin/modules , click 'Check for New Modules', select from the list (under the headline 'Audio') 'Audio MP3', click install. Done.

Tell me if the problem still exists.

hi kixe,

i have problems to get the template-codes to work. 1st i see is that the moduleInfo shows version 101 where it should be 102, isn't it? ---> ah, ok, forget this. got version 1.02 from git, it's not linked on module sites download.

while $page->player['title']; outputs the file-name or description ok, the $page->player['code'] does nothing. I get no errors, only notices for the undefined $titles and $string vars. am i doing anything wrong?

thanks for looking into it,

martin

Same thing here Martin, is this a bug? Did you find out how to fix this? If so please share. Thanks.

This Module was one of the first modules I have written for PW. By myself I didn't use the module since a long time. Now I integrate Audioplayer normally with html5 audio tag and beautify it using the following 2 Javascript Libraries.
http://mediaelementjs.com/
https://github.com/johndyer/mediaelement/
or
https://kolber.github.io/audiojs/

But if you like it, I pushed an update (v1.2.0) to github and the modules directory and tested it under 3.0.x without problems. :)

Please read instructions, create a template file like:

// template file
echo $page->player['code'];

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Basic Usage

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      FieldtypeConfigForm.zip
      Edit: 14. August 2018. please delete/uninstall previously downloaded zip

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
