ngTunes prototype - audio playlists 2011-04-11 14:21:32 Reply

Despite not being an active part of the Newgrounds community, I have often used the audio portal to find legal music for my video's (and games). Recently I have also started to use it as the best legal source for instrumental music, but missed a playlist feature extremely much (and didn't want to download half of Newgrounds), so as a native geek I decided to make myself a playlist function... which grew into a playlist app... which is starting to grow into a full featured music app :P

Getting to the point, ngTunes is a prototype which ONLY WORKS IN CHROME (ideally in mac, functional on windows/linux as well, but not as beautiful). You can try it out over here and I attached a screenshot.

As far as I am concerned I am done with it, because it fits my personal requirements, if however u guys could convince me that u would really like it (I honestly don't know what u guys will think :S ) (*hint* *hint* donation/chipin form :P) I will probably at least make it cross browser and make :) Oh well, just thought I would drop that out into the open :) So what do u guys think? (Right now it updates the list only once a day, as it's a fairly intensive task)

Wow, that is awesome man. Good job.

I have no use for it, sadly, but I do appreciate the great technical skills displayed.

Well done.

Wow, should have seen that app earlier I guess :P, but by now I like my own app better (especially because I tend to switch operating systems quite often :P). But reminded me of some cool stuff I want to add sometime (author and download links, shuffle and repeat), as they are all fairly really simple, but I am simply quite lazy XD

@Both: Yeah I tried it in both opera and firefox as well, but in firefox the input[type=range] slider thing at the top isn't yet implemented (well... I tried a script which should have automatically solved that, but didn't do it well enough) and with opera... I had a problem with the sound... hmm... interesting, because if u claim it did work than getting it to work in 11.10+ shouldn't be too hard. Dunno.

And thx for all the compliments :)

How out of place I feel here as a lvl 1 (*bragging mode on* for the record, on kongregate I am lvl 45 *bragging mode off*)

This is fantastic! If you widened the compatibility and made it downloadable that would be even better! As early posts go, this was a great one!


Your opinion is wrong.

Downloadable as a stand alone app, because depending on your operating system you can already get pretty close to that and once I get it to work neatly in firefox that would be possible on every OS using mozilla prism. Oh well, I dont really see the point nowadays anymore of stand alone apps over web apps... especially for apps which need internet connectivity either way.

there's nothing that makes this stand out from the already functional ng audio portal besides playlists by genre

Hmm, it's not like he couldn't simply say a word and have one of his developers build a far superior version in a week or so :P and on top of that without the limitations I am facing (can't read id3 data without a artificial parser, I can't read equalizer visualization data, etc. ) XD

Almost didn't click the link just cause I didn't want to open Chrome to use it. Then I read it works in Firefox, so I tried and it's pretty good.
Bookmarked it, and I'll probably use it fairly often. Much better than those shitty flash NG radio things.

UPDATE : In the bottom left you will now find a shuffle button, I have a number of other buttons planned as well :P, but this was the first step. During the upgrade it was possible some of you got a 404 error, though I doubt anybody experienced that. Hmm... what's there to add... shuffle through different genres is of course not possible and I solved a bug where now the playlist will restart at the beginning if it reaches the end (btw, is there anybody who often reaches the end and would really like more songs to be available in every genre?)

Aside of that, I am sincerely suprised that you guys are ok with how it looks in firefox... because I would call that anything except esthetically functional... oh well, it's a pity/odd that I can't edit the opening post, cause I counted on that being possible. Oh well, as I said in the beginning for now I am just continuing developing in chrome except something convinces me to change my mind ;P.

Ok... I hate double posting, but wanted to share with you that there is now a notifier option, screenshot attached below, it can be toggled form the bottom left (from a svg-based interface *jaj*).

You should work with some of the audio mods and see what they think of your project

I would have no clue at all where to look for them :P , but it might be interesting to drop them a line if u - or somebody else - could point in the right direction.

Will be uploading a new version with repeat as an option as well, sometime today probably, will post a message once I get there.

Added the promised loop feature, but I... hmm... fear there is an ugly bug somewhere which sometimes causes problems (although normally everything is fine). Oh well, enjoy the update.

Interesting. I've tried those flash games that organize the NG Audio Portal into something easier to sift through, but her you made a web applet which is lighter (can't say it's as shiny, but it suits my needs well) and it doesn't require five seconds of load-time. Excellent work, man!

Not as shiny the way it looks in most browsers? Or not as shiny as it looks in the screenshots and chromium on mac (were I build it on :P)? Cause as far as I am concerned it looks awesome :P
