amaroK Web Frontend
Audio
Score 79%
Description:

This allows users to access songs that are in the amaroK MySQL database from anywhere (with a little configuration of course).

NOTE: Do not try and install this from within amaroK's "Get New Scripts!" dialog! It is neither built nor packaged to be installed that way. It is to be installed on a PHP ready web server. As of now I have no intentions of ever making it usable through the amaroK "Get New Scripts!" dialog but this always has the potential to change in the future, although I highly doubt that it will ;)

I was getting a blank page so I added the following to the top of index.php "error_reporting(E_ALL);". Now when I go to the page I get the error message below and if I don't have the "error_reporting(E_ALL);" in I just get a blank page.


Notice: Undefined variable: errorreporting in /var/www/obsidianmusic/index.php on line 14

Can't seem to get any playback through Firefox or Safari. When I click on song simply tries to download 4k version of mp3 also not playable.

Can I access the stream from iTunes??

Thanks

i have an album called "Crossroads" its from Tracy Chapman... and i have an Album called "Crossroads" which is from Mind.In.A.Box ... so when i select the Album "Crossroads" i have the Songs from both Albums...

also Download doesnt work... is it because i have my MP3s in Subfolders?

... If you set it to show the album crossroads, it'll show any artist with an album by that name... add a php line to differentiate this by artist...

Also... check your download settings configuration... I've never had any problems using this.

The most complicated thing I found to do was changing the theme... a built in admin panel would be a nice update to this.

I can't seem to figure out a method to access my music that is spread over multiple directories. Anyone had any luck with this? symlinking it all together seems a bit too messy.

Cheers,

Hm I installed it and everything worked great, except that whenever I try to play anything amarok gives me errors about not being able to support the file type...

Nvr mind I just had to get the other download from your sourceforeg and it worked perfectly. By the way why do you have two available downloads?

There seems to be a problem displaying non-latin (eg. Japanese) text. It's coming out as mojibake (gibberish tob-bit characters)

When downloading a song from the web interface, the file is being saved with a "%20% "in the filename for each space. For example, "Artist A - Song Title.mp3" is being saved as "Artist%20%A%20%-%20%Song%20%Title.mp3". Is there any easy way to fix that? Possibily have it convert the spaces into underscores ("_")? Thanks in advance!

I installed the package on my web server and I have amarok storing all the information in mysql and I also edited globals.inc.php with the correct information but when I load the page all I get is an empty html page.. Any ideas?

yep, I got the same thing. Amarok works using mysql, the amarok web page is there, but no contents.

I suppose it might be a permissions problem?

could you provide more information for me? perhaps put this in index.php:

error_reporting(E_ALL);

this is an odd error i used to get in internet explorer because it didn't like but that was fixed long ago... hopefully this wont be an issue in 2.0 but i'd like some info on it to try and prevent it to the best of my ability.

cheers, and sorry for the inconvenience,

I dont know what happened but I added the above line and it worked. I havent tried to view the page in over a week so Im not sure if that line had anything to do with it or not. but it is working right now!

Tried it again - doesn't work. No output, nothing. A lot of warnings about missing indices and unknown variables but script will not give some output. I use php 5.0.4 with apache2, error reporting is set to full. No idea anymore and giving up.

I switched from SQLite to MySQL for just this type of functionality. You've saved me the effort of writing my own.

awesome, works well - i hope you plan to extend this to be able to download complete albums and playlists (maybe zip the contents). One small bug - downloading doesn't escape %20 etc back to a space, and i assume this holds for other cases as well. Thanks ryan, Seb

When I download it to try and install it, amarok says that there isn't an executable file in the package.

Is there something weird happening here?

Report

Thats because it isn't an install package.
Just extract it somewhere in the webroot of apache (you must have php installed too) to make it work :)

In addition to what wolph said:

Even though this script does show up in amaroK's "Get New Scripts!" dialog its not an installable script in that fasion. It's meant to be installed to a PHP ready web server like Apache with mod_php.

If you have any more obstructions from getting this installed please comment so the answers can be publicly viewed ;)

Cheers, and thanks for trying out my script!

So it shouldn't be called amaroK Script.. that's just confusing for users, isn't it? :)

Or make a wrapper kinda thing so it actually behaves like an amaroK Script.

Has anyone ported this to postgresql? I'm working on it and i don't know if it's worth the effort or not.

Thanks for this great frontend!!
