Host Your Own Music Playlist with Opentape
Aug 28, 2008 @ 08:45:20

With the demise of the muxtape service, a new option has popped up - the ability to run your own version with a PHP application called OpenTape. Lifehacker has posted a guide to getting this software set up and working.

Beloved music playlist hosting service Muxtape's gone offline to "sort out a problem with the RIAA," but if you've got some web server space, you can host, stream, and share your own digital music mixes Muxtape-style with newly-launched PHP web application Opentape.

It's not a direct copy, but it's pretty close (and pretty easy to get up and running). It'd PHP5 only, so if you're still living in the past and only have PHP4, you're out of luck. Their guide shows a sample installation on a Windows machine, but its not much of a stretch to follow along on a unix-based machine. You'll also need the curl extension to get some parts of it working - it's not required, though. They have a work-around for that too.

Where Are The Good Development Tools For PHP, Part II
May 14, 2007 @ 07:48:00

In a follow up to a previous post, Chris Hartjes asks once again "where are the good development tools for PHP?" This time, though, he thinks he's found just the tool he was looking for:

Cal Evans over at the Zend Developer Zone gave me a heads-up that he would be posting a tutorial on using Flex and PHP. I believe my exact words to him after about 10 minutes of playing with it was "this is FUCKING cool!". Which it definitely is.

He talks about what he needed to get started and how his first experience with creating an application went - a simple app up and running (from install to a finished app) in about 30 minutes.

For more information on Adobe's Flex, check out their website at Flex.org.

Podcast player in Flash! PHP Script to Convert RSS to XSPF
Apr 25, 2006 @ 07:31:10

m. norway has found way to combine the popular XSPF web music player Flash application with the flexibility of RSS feeds via a simple PHP script.

I like the flashbased XSPF mp3 player. I had planned to rewrite the flashcode so that it could read rss with enclosures instead, but I liked the possibility to have unique pictures on each track, and I wanted to check out the XSPF format.

So I wrote a PHP script that uses DOMXML and xpath to convert an existing rss to xspf, it even have a search function of sorts.

He shows an example of the script that convers the RSS feed into a tracklist that the Flash mp3 player can understand. I also like his idea of using del.icio.us to roll a "make your own podcast" kind of thing with the RSS output from your links.
