I have read youtube terms and I will contact youtube with all the information. Chomeless or not, its not allowed to play audio from Youtube without fully displaying Youtube player at the same time, and its minimum required size.
Oh God. MSP is not playing audio is playing the video , you can see the video on the left and you can scrub it, change volume etc prety much everything you can do with a youtube video. This is why they expose the API. Anyway we are going nowhere with this. Feel free to contact whoever you want I know that what I did is ok, if youtube says is not I will find a solution.
Best regards. Tibi – FWD.
On mobile you are even playing Youtube without visible player at all.
Ok I have noted your complaintand I am working on a plan to rectify this.
It is prohibited to separate audio from video and play only audio while video player is hidden from view and does not meet required minimum size.
7. separate, isolate, or modify the audio or video components of any YouTube audiovisual content made available as part of, or in connection with, YouTube API Services.
8. promote separately the audio or video components of any YouTube audiovisual content made available as part of, or in connection with, the YouTube API Services;
Embedded players must have a viewport that is at least 200px by 200px. If the player displays controls, it must be large enough to fully display the controls without shrinking the viewport below the minimum size. We recommend 16:9 players be at least 480 pixels wide and 270 pixels tall.
Noted! I will look int this.
The only problem that I see is the youtube player size other then that everything is in order and even the player size is questionable considering that I am using custom controls, but like I said I will look into it.
Best regards. Tibi – FWD
Currently this is not possible but I am working on an update now and I will add this feature, it has been requested a few times.
Can the proxy script and/or “proxyPath_str” be overwritten? The library’s XML path appears to be hard-coded to “%mainFolderPath%proxy.php”. I don’t use PHP and am using a URLRewrite rule so that it accesses the correct JSON (not XML) API endpoint. I would prefer not to advertise PHP in the URL. Is this possible?
Either way the XML file is parsed via the code based on what is retrieved from the php script so is not an easy change so to do what you want some code modifications are required, the open source code is included and this opperation is made in the FWDMSPData.js code under the loadXML method, you can try to implement your logic there.
In a future version, could you add the ability to override the default path & filename to the proxy file? Not every developer or environment uses PHP or knows how to add a rewrite rule. I’ve written a better proxy script (using a different web application language) that uses caching so that background CURL web requests aren’t fired each time the playlist is requested.
I just noticed that I’ll have to add a URLRewrite rule for “sendmail.php” so that I can use different scripting language Please add an override URLs for downloader.php and proxyfolder.php too. (I tend to store static file resources (JS/CSS/JPG/PNG) in a sub-directory with long EXPIRE headers and prefer that all API-type scripts to not be stored in the same location.) Thanks.
NOTE: I’m not asking you to rewrite the PHP scripts… just add options to override the default location and filename for non-PHP environments. I’d rewrite it myself, but when you add new features, I’d have to backport all of my modifications to comply with your changes and would prefer not to have to do that with each library update. Thanks.
Yes I understand what you mean and yes I will do this asap. I am glad that you found a solution for your project.
I consider my workaround a “hack” because scanners will parse the PHP URLs on the web pages and launch PHP vulnerability exploits against my non-PHP application environment.
I’m creating a XML Playlist (which is actually returned as a JSON object) using only YouTube URLs. As a result, none of the “data-buy-url” parameters in the XML file are detected and displayed as “purchase” links. Is this a bug/oversight? Thanks.
Yes this is interesting. XML should work like the other types but it is possible to be a bug considering how many features this player has.
Please send me an email at email@example.com.
I noticed that most third-party references in the JS lib are all non-SSL. The hostname “api.official.fm” doesn’t exist regardless of protocol. (Their Twitter account hasn’t been active since 2015.) I believe that all HTTP references can be updated to use SSL without impacting any functionality. Is there any reason to not use SSL?
I think official.fm website is offline but I will leave it part of the player , maybe they will decide to add it back. About the SSL please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me more details.
I like the options you are adding. Keep it up.
On my webpage, I’m using the jQuery MagnificPopUp plugin. The player has a z-index of 2147483647 and I’m not able to have the lightbox display above the player. The lightbox is responsive and I’m worried that content may be covered by the player. There aren’t any classes or IDs in the DIVs that are generated, so it’s difficult to add CSS overrides. What’s the best method to override the player’s z-index? Thanks.
The z-index is hardcoded directly in the code, I will try to add this in the constructor so that it can be modified.
Help! I am getting ‘error loading official.fm url!’ error on the homepage of our website: http://motivmusic.com. It should be loading this SoundCloud playlist: https://soundcloud.com/motivmusicteam/sets/showcase
This was working fine until a few weeks ago and I haven’t changed anything. I just upgraded to latest versions 4.1 (from 3.7) and it has not fixed the problem.
I have also emailed email@example.com
Soundcloud changed the API and I had to update the code in order to work. Please download and install the latest version, it will work fine also there are a few extra features added.
Thanks Tibi, when I try to install the latest version by uploading the fwdvp.zip file, I get the following:
“Destination folder already exists. /home/peterr56/public_html/wp-content/plugins/fwduvp/
Plugin install failed.”
I don’t want to lose all my skin customizations.. Can you help?
First uninstall the current plugin, then install the latest version, you will not lose your skin customizations.
Thanks Tibi, I was able to re-install the latest version of FWD Mp3 Sticky Player v4.1. but the problem is still there..
It also installed FWD Ultimate Video Player v4.2, but I presume that is NOT what I need for playing a Soundcloud playlist?
Please try to clear the browser cache to make sure is not loading the old js file. As for UVP no it will not matter is a different products it has nothing to do with Soundcloud.
I don’t know if you saw it but I have a limited bundle with all my plugins with 95% discount, in case you are interested you can see it here https://codecanyon.net/item/fwd-mega-bundle/19117054
Hi Tibi, I have fully cleared all caches. This problem is not limited to my computer. You will see the problem for for yourself at http://motivmusic.com
What other info can I give you to help get this sorted? I’m happy to provide you backend access to my Wordpress install if it will help.
I’ve just looked in your website source and still the old js files. Please send me admin and pass at firstname.lastname@example.org I will do this for you.
details sent. many thanks
Hi Tibi, just letting you know that the plugin is still not working. Same error as before. Thanks.
I think you have updated the old plugin again that is the only answer. Please send me again admin and pass I will reinstall it gain.
For those who want to buy the sticky grid I’ve done a version of it since it was super requested. Please see it at http://www.webdesign-flash.ro/p/uavsg/
This is so hard. It claims it is easy to install but what you send out is so confussing. Why did i have to pick the player at purchase then get several differant things that make it harder. Then your directions or so not clear on what to do. I hope your customer service support is better than your product examples
How do I actually edit the color of the player using HEX color? Where do i go to edit it? What code do i use? I went to the CCS section of the plugin and changed the color and nothing changed at all
There are three parameters. The first enable the HEX / CSS feature, the second and third are the normal and selected color. Please note that this feature dose not work local it has to be tested online also for better results set the skinPath to “hex_dark” or “hex_white”, this are skins optimized for this feature. All this is explained in the documentation..
Hi, first of all: Amazing Player! Quick question: I am using Easy Digital Downloads (Standard Autio Player) to sell music; Is there any way to connect the audio preview to your player? If no, do you offer customization work?
I am not sure what you mean with your question. Please be more specific.
Sorry I am using the theme marketify and EDD to sell music. If you hit the play button of an item, you get an audio preview with the standard audio player. I did then install your plugin and added manually each audio file.
My question: is there any chance to “connect” your audio player with the standard audio player. So when you hit play, the track is played in your audio player.
e.g.: https://marketify-demos.astoundify.com/classic/products/innovation/ – you click play and your player hits the music
I see now. Yes it is possible using the API you can actually play an mp3 file based on id and playlist id. It requires some minimal code but is not difficult and all the API methods are explained in the documentation.
