PHP streaming




hi all,

i am trying to create a PHP application which will stream music on intranet. now the real problem i m facing here is straming music. if i m directly clicking over the link of the song , it gets downloaded. again if i am creating a playlist on the server side and try to play on client side, it is again downloading. but i want it to stream.

mp3blaster, hands down the BEST MP3/OGG player I've found.

As for the PHP deal, have you heard of netjuke? That might be something you wanna look into as it'll save you the work since it's all done for you www.freshmeat.net

Cool

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Xing, check out freshmeat:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/2url/
http://freshmeat.net/projects/agatha/
http://freshmeat.net/projects/ample/

And so on. www.freshmeat.net is a great place to find a lot of applications in Linux.

Streaming technology programmers : HELP

Dear MasterC,

different posts behave differently and yours is totally different than others.. i did not know that it will but me in todays posting and that is why i posted a new thread.. i did not have any particular intentions to flood ur board with my name.. and i do not think it is right to draw conclusions of ur own... i really was not aware of rules..

Thanks for those freshmeat links.. i am looking into them and 1 has already failed.. there are not many suporting documents abt how to use them.. but never mind, i m trying...

i ask help from those programmers who have ever worked on streaming and have successfully implemented it...

u can delete streaming troubles-2 posting..

thnx

I agree. Different posts = more ideas. That is why you want to pick the most relevant forum to place your thread in, get the most valuable replies to your post. I understand your intentions were not malicious, and that you were simply wanting a larger opinion from the masses. Drawing my own conclusions is natural, unless of course I'm not human (which sometimes I wonder ).

Yeah, some of those links I've been checking out myself. I've also been reading on IceCast and it is capable of streaming more than just Ogg's, it's current main focus does seem to be on ogg's and I see how you could draw the conclusion (see?) that it's only about ogg's.

If it's a programmers point of view you want, then the programming forum would have been most appropriate. If it's software End Users point of view you'd like (sounds more like it) then this forum was more appropriate IMHO.

And we don't usually delete threads around here, they usually end up locked, but not deleted.



No worries buddy, just keeping the forums tidy, doing the best I can to answer questions, and give the 'all in all' best linux experience I can to all the members I can.



Have fun Linuxin!

That's why you have to pick the MOST suitable forum for your post. If no other forum seems suitable, then Linux - General is the place to post.

So it's really deciding what is MOST important. Realizing of course that usually programmers stop by here, and that Software End users stop by Programming, always helps you too.

Cool
