PromoDJ players ceased to work

1
Kdg (talkcontribs)

Just to note that PromoDJ player doesn't work now, though it used to work in the past. A blank space is displayed where the player should be. Tried in Firefox and Chrome. Example: 2013-07-06 - Andrey Pushkarev @ The Opening of All4DJ Store

When do you use "@" or "-"? (Radio Show, Promo Mix)

I have three case where the use or not.

1. * 2017-04-16 - Tomy DeClerque - My Chart (April Promo Mix)

2. * 2017-05-11 - Armin van Buuren, David Gravell - A State Of Trance 813

3. * 2017-05-09 - Elyte @ Soul Clap Records Show, The Lot Radio played Live Every show

some NTS Radio sets. Please tell when to use and when not ... ? What is the difference?

MDB (talkcontribs)

@ is used when the show is live, i.e. the DJs are all in the studio and it's broadcasted live.

Promo mixes are recorded and spread later.

2 hour radio show where both hours a commercially released mix is played.

Not sure how to properly add it. Instead of usual 2 hour Drum & Bass session on kiss 100, DJ Craze ‎– United DJs Of America Vol. 16 - DJ Craze - The Nexxsound (Link) is played (repeated) both hours. They've added voiceovers i.e "You're checking out my sound DJ Craze on Kiss 100" and towards the end "If you enjoyed what you just heard go pick up The Nexxsound"

date is 2001-03-26.

MDB (talkcontribs)

Add the Mix CD as mix page.

Add the radio show as repeat of the Mix CD page.

Arne90 (talkcontribs)

Ok I added it.

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

I have a problem with nullrefer ex. ttp://nullrefer.com/?mixcloud.com/aboveandbeyond/ on MixesDB site. site with junk software! Ignore and or change anything?

audiomack players

MDB (talkcontribs)

We added audiomack as new player.

Clicking the x button doesn't work for some reason, but if you click on the area where the play button is located on the left, the layer will disappear.

MDB (talkcontribs)

Yep. Quite crappy, but every new player is welcome Smilie - smile.png

Live mix pages count

2
Caffeine205 (talkcontribs)

Is there any way you could show an actual live count of all the mix pages at the top of the main page instead of 20X,000+ etc? I don't have an actual real reason for this suggestion other than it's easier than checking the Stats page whenever I get curious, lol. Plus, I just think it looks cooler.

MDB (talkcontribs)

We had that before. But together with other stats it saves some db hits and the page loads faster.

The start page is the most important of all and must load as qquick as possible.

Live stats can be viewed on MixesDB:Stats tho (as you might know).

Bulk/Batch editing sites

Hi,

after all the Hulkshare player links were deleted I am uploading my stuff to archive.org. So I have to add 1100+ player links on 1100+ pages. Smilie - blink.gif I there any way to automate this? Or I could provide you a list with the links and MDBBot could add those player links?

MDB (talkcontribs)

Without a reference to the mix page (url or ID), that could only be done manually.

Note that archive.org is not really hosting stuff forever. I have seen a few going down so we had to remove them here.

Mail me your list and I will see Smilie - thumbsup.gif mailto:mixesdb@gmail.com

Buggy short URLs for artist pages

13
Nelfox5 (talkcontribs)

I'm having a minor issue when linking short URLs to artist pages. Some unwanted codes show up. For example this link "mixesdb.com/?318992" shows


|dplcache=catImagesAvalon_EmersonisMobile0isAdv1min201702062226v1 |namespace=File |categorymatch=Avalon_Emerson |ordermethod=firstedit |order=descending |count=8 |mode=userformat

|resultsheader= Images Recently added: (3 total)(Explore)

|resultsfooter=

|format=«gallery widths="180px" heights="180px"»\n,\n%PAGE%¦ ²{ImageUsageLink¦%TITLE%}²,,\n«/gallery»

|eliminate=all


above the "Mixes" section. Am I the only one experiencing this? Smilie - ahhh.gif

MDB (talkcontribs)

Thanks, that wasn't tested well enough for categories as the short URL was no intended to be used there.

Will fix it later. Quick fix: Hiding everything except "Mixes" on such category URLs.

Nelfox5 (talkcontribs)

I don't know if it's related but I'm getting blank gaps in the player sections:

imgur.com/PQcfAYG imgur.com/coMuRdj

Any clue?

MDB (talkcontribs)

Still? Which browser and OS do you use?

Nelfox5 (talkcontribs)

Yes but it seems to be related to posters/covers/flyers embedded in the mix pages. Blanks stop at the bottom of the images like on the links I posted above. I don't see these blanks on pages not displaying an image.

I'm using Firefox 53.0 on macOS 10.12.4.

MDB (talkcontribs)

It's the dynmaic player width space that is calculated. I addeed some extra px. Please reload (CMD+Shift+R). Fixed?

Nelfox5 (talkcontribs)

Yep, all good now! Smilie - listen.gif

Nelfox5 (talkcontribs)

Erf, blanks made a comeback for some reason Smilie - ahhh.gif

Nelfox5 (talkcontribs)

Absolutely not related but copy-paste tracklists are not displayed anymore on junodownload Smilie - ahhh.gif Smilie - ahhh.gif

MDB (talkcontribs)

There's a bug in the latest Greasemonkey update. See here.

MDB (talkcontribs)

Oh, that's unrelated. Thanks, fixed! Click to update

Nelfox5 (talkcontribs)

Sorry, didn't see the discussion about the Greasemonkey bug. Unfortunately the script update didn't fix the problem for me :/ Hopefully they'll fix Greasemonkey soon. Any idea why the player blanks came back?

MDB (talkcontribs)

If you have Greasemonkey 3.11 you have to use the old version as described.

YouTube players for tracks

MDB (talkcontribs)

Tracklists now come with YouTube players Smilie - listen.gif

A red YouTube icon means there's a toggable player. A grey icon means there was no proper match and you click to search the track on YouTube.

MDB (talkcontribs)

In the preferences you can now set the second at which the video should start (default 45).

MDB (talkcontribs)

New default video start is 100 seconds.

Nelfox5 (talkcontribs)

Great addition! Smilie - joy.gif I see my suggestion didn't fall on deaf ears Smilie - whistle.gif

MDB (talkcontribs)

Users and visitors can now update YouTube IDs on tracks:

Tracklist YouTube players - edit.png

The changes are tracked for patrolling, but atm I patrol them myself. If it gets used a lot I may add a patrolling page for mods.

MDB (talkcontribs)

We added autoplay now. Play a YouTube track video and when it finished, the next unopened track with a YouTube player will start to play.

In autoplay mode the default start duration for the next track is 0 (for a better listening experience). When you click on another YouTube track individually, it will use your user pref or the default 100 again.
