PHP music player controller 0.4
Feb 17, 2010
PHP music player controller (PMPC) is a script that allows navigation through your music directory, and the adding of albums or single songs into a playlist. The project also allows you to play, stop, pause, and go back and forth through the playlist.Apache needs to run as the same user that is running the music players. In other words, it probably needs to run as whatever your username is. This is a setting in /etc/httpd.conf . So, don't run this on a machine that's visible to the web, or make a user with really strict rules applying to them - so they can't run anything but an x session, desktop environment, and the music player, and can't touch much of anything but their home files.I guess I'd serve the pages out of the user's home directory if I was doing that.
If you know a better way to get this to work, please let me know. I don't profess to be an apache-configuration guru, and for all I know this method is really just dumb.If you're running apache as yourself, you'll need to change the session.save_path variable in your php.ini to something that you have write access to, or chmod the directory it's currently using.PS: If amarok or xmms was working fine for you before, let me know. I'll have a chance to test them, and code the support for them here in the next couple of days.What's New in This Release:· Huge improvements were made.· The appearance of the player interface was improved.· Amarok is now supported.· Directories with hyphens in their names should play correctly now.
