Hey guys, it's been a long time since I posted...great to be back.
{technically i wasnt away....... Laughing }

I have a prob with a particular script that I need for my site, it's a media player, but the shuffle option keeps messing up I think, and the play button wont work Neutral

Here's the script: I'll be glad if anyone can help me

<object id="darkplayer" codeBase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701"
type="application/x-oleobject" height="0" standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..." width="0"
<param NAME VALUE>
<param NAME="ShowControls" VALUE="0">
<param NAME="ShowStatusBar" VALUE="0">
<param NAME="ShowDisplay" VALUE="0">
<param NAME="DefaultFrame" VALUE="Slide">
<param NAME="Autostart" VALUE="1">
<param NAME="Loop" VALUE="True">
<form name="blueplayer">
<select style="FONT-SIZE: 8pt; BACKGROUND:#d2d2d2; WIDTH: 115; COLOR: #0000ff; font-face: arial; height:25;"
name="playlist" size="1">
<option value="0">SONG TITLE 1</option>
<option value="1">Jay-Z+Linkin Park: Numb/Encore</option>
<option value="2">Jay-Z+Linkin Park: H to the Izzo</option>
<option value="3">Jay-Z+Linkin Park: Points of Authority/99 Problems/One Step Closer</option>
<option value="4">The Killers: Mr. Brightside</option>
<option value="5">50 Cent: In Da Club</option>
<option value="6">Linkin Park: Runaway</option>
<option value="7">Kryptonite</option>
<option value="8">Green Day: American Idiot</option>
<option value="9">Green Day: Boulevard of Broken Dreams</option>
<input TYPE="BUTTON" NAME="darkplay" VALUE="play" OnClick="play(document.forms['blueplayer'].playlist);">
<input TYPE="BUTTON" NAME="darkpause" VALUE="pause" OnClick="document.darkplayer.pause(); playstate=2;">
<input TYPE="BUTTON" NAME="darkstop" VALUE="stop" OnClick="document.darkplayer.stop(); playstate=2;"></p>

<script language="JavaScript">
var playstate = 1;
shuffle = 1;
songs=new Array();

if (shuffle == 1) {
var randsg = Math.floor(Math.random()*songs.length);
document.darkplayer.FileName = songs[randsg];
document.darkplayer.scr = songs[randsg];
document.forms['blueplayer'].playlist.options['randsg'].selected = true;
function play(list) {
if (playstate == 2) {
} else {
var snum = list.options[list.selectedIndex].value;
document.darkplayer.FileName = songs[snum];
document.darkplayer.scr = songs[snum];
playstate = 1;
Could you give a link to see that in action? Oh, and you need to reupload your avatar.
Ok, i'll do that soon

Look at bottom of the board and you'll see a selection box with Song Title 1 as a choice with others, but it wont work. Sad
Well, you're right that it doesn't work. Very Happy
Any ideas, guys?
no clue, but i'd think a flash media player would be easier and better....
Actually, using a plugin for Quicktime or Windows Media Player, and then embedding the media into the page would be the best and easiest way to do it...
But then would it have a shuffle ability?
This thingy I have is suposedly supposed to shuffle the songs, but it doesn't work...

However, I'd still like to know how I would be able to do what you mentioned Smile
Yeah, that would make it that you could either only play one song or only play them all in a specific order.
Kerm...this is what i've been trying to do...but i suck at Javascript...
Oh, this is the kind of thing you meant?? I was imagining something much different for what you were talking about. Smile

but its also the least flexible.

An example of a flash player would be something like this: http://www.kllrnohj.com/mp3player/music/ - it uses a .xml file to store playist/song info/location, and allows for multiple playlists.

The best part, tho, is that it is extremely cross-platform compatible. Embedded media doesn't like to work right for me in linux (i have tried several distros/media players - never works right), but i can get flash to work just fine
Yeah, even Firefox in win32 doesn't render some embedded media.
how the heck did u do that???
Huh? How did I do what? I didn't do anything... Smile
I was talking 2 Kllrnohj... Laughing
Ah, yeah, that was pretty awesome...

google....sshh Wink

actually its a block module for PHP-Nuke, i merely ripped off the php dependant stuff, and slightly recoded the flash file (yes, i know how to bypass "protected" .swf movie restrictions)

if you want it, just lemme know and i'll post a download for it (it was released under GNU GPL originally, so it would still be legal to redistribute)
plz...will u post it for download...but how do u get the XML?
the xml file is included, along with a readme (it is fairly self explanitory)

i am in way over my head with XML...
