Player interfase development
« on: April 11, 2017, 03:11:41 am »
Hello.

A client of me hosting their streaming radio with Centova has just asked me to do some improvements in their website, including updating the look and feel of the radio player. I need to study the case and send them an estimate. Is there anywhere where I can find how to interact with the streaming signal, be it with OHO or javascript/jQuery in order to deploy an interface?

Their site runs under a WordPress installation, so any already made player/widget would help as I could simply modify its code (HTML, CSS...) but I don't mind to start from scratch given some clear and precise tutorial/manual.

My client asked for a very basic player in a pop-up window with play/stop buttons, volume slider and 'now playing' text, + a list of the last 12 hours songs  in some other web page. I'm thinking of something closer to http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_6music for instance.

Any help, link to proper manual or sample of player would be more than welcome.

Have a nice day!

Thank you @Roger.

Anyway, I was looking fora a more configurable coded option and not such a graphical one. If you check the BBC sample I linked above you may see what I mean.

Thank you anyway.

Things like that usually aren't available for free.  It takes a lot of code to put something like that together and developers don't give it away for free.

Check out these players they also work with AAC+:

Thank you Dennis.

Never said I wanted it for free ;-) In any case what I really want is 'some kind of API' to build it myself and definitely not based on Flash but on HTML5 + CSS + jQuery/vanilla javascript. I ca code. I just don't know how to deal with the stream, e.g. how to call for the artist and song name in order to place it wherever and however I wish making use of PHP and/or javascript.

At some point I asked for 'a player' only in order to be able to hack it, recode, adapt and config it to my taste and needs.

Hope it gets more clear now. And again, thank you Dennis for the reply.
Have a nice day!

There so many ways to do this in a very simple way, special with workpress. Please check http://soundstorm-radio.com there you will find a example for a popup player. If you need more info i will help you more.

I think you are looking for some kind of JavaScript audio player library like jPlayer ( http://jplayer.org/ ) or SoundManager 2 ( http://www.schillmania.com/projects/soundmanager2/ ) so that you have an easy to use JavaScript API and configurable template for the GUI of the player.

Hi VaaChar.
That was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thanks a lot.

I'll give it a try and will post back if have any doubts about it.

Have a nice weekend you all.
