Music players for Gaia

This took me a while with playing around with music players to put them on Gaia and I got it worked out. So here it is:

to get the multi media player go to:

http://www.projectplaylist.com/

Then set up your playlist to what you would like. Once you have done that you need to get the code. Now I found that using the myspace code works BUT you only use a part of it. Example here is my myspace code (only use the part that I have in BOLD BLUE- you have to find this in your code):

<div style="text-align: center; margin-left: auto; visibility:visible; margin-right: auto; width:450;"><embed style="width:435px; visibility:visible; height:270px;"allowScriptAccess="never"src="http://www.playlistproject.net/mc/mp3player.swf?config=

http://www.playistproject.net/mc/config/config_black.xml&mywidth=435&myheight=270&file= http://www.playlistproject.net/loadplaylist.php?playlist=1234567" menu="false" quality="high" width="435" height="270" name="mp3player " wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" border="0"/><BR><a href=http://www.playlistproject.net><img src=http://www.playlistproject.net/mc/images/create_black.jpg border=0></a><a href=http://www.playlistproject.net/standalone/1234567target=_blank><img src=http://www.playlistproject.net/mc/images/launch_black.jpg border=0></a><a href=http://www.playlistproject.net/download/1234567><img src=http://www.playlistproject.net/mc/images/get_black.jpg border=0></a> </div>

OK I played around with my music player and found that if you do some simple changes you can take out the white on the sides. So here is what you need to change:

Look on your code for the mywidth=435&myheight=270

and change the numbers to:mywidth=480&myheight=360

Here is another tip from xShadow91x for profiles that have a smaller music player

[quote= xShadow91x on Gaia]

well i really like my profile and so i decided i was going to keep the music player small. but then i had an idea that instead of making my player bigger, that i would try making it smaller (so that i would be able to see the scroll bar for my songs). so i used the print screen button on my keyboard and copied the image of my screen into paint program. then i resized everything to find out how big the box that my profile allowed was. my profile happens to only allow a square with sides that are 192 pixels long. so i just used the number 192 for my width and height, and it worked out great! Laughing[/quote]


that will make the box bigger and take up the whole space on the media player

I need to stress that to get this to work have to put it in the MULTIMEDIA section. It will not work in any other area!

TIP: Here is a tip sent to me by Aznqtchick4 if you can not find your multi media section simply go here and you will be able to add it: http://www.gaiaonline.com/account/multimedia/

Also depending on what background layout you use will also determine the size of the media player. Some layouts will not let you change the width and height at all.

edit: OK I'm getting lots of questions from other Gaia people who read this that they can't find their media section. So if your having that problem please read trouble shooting below

 

To get the multi media click on the edit profile above and then on the right hand side of your profile (like half way down you should see the a box to view) click on the "contents" button then on you'll get a new box pop up and click the "+add" button for Media. That will give you the multimedia section. Now with your layout your music player will be smaller. It show up bigger on "classic" style layouts. Here is also a website that has layouts for Gaia - the classic ones (that show the player Tektek.org but if you use one of their layouts you will not be able to add your car or house to your profile (some show them on their profiles). The layout I currently use is a classic from that site.

 

OK so since I get hit up every day with kids and questions (like at least 10 a day) and since now project playlist now points to this forum for all BB Coding help and help with Gaia I figured I needed to do a trouble shooting section to this. Here are some of the most frequent questions I get:

Trouble Shooting:

Q: How come my music player is so small I changed the numbers but it now looks funny (it's not any bigger).

A: Some profiles will not let you make your player larger - regardless if you have changed the numbers. If you want it larger you may need to change your layout (background). The backgrounds I have found that work the best to get a larger player are ones from http://www.tektek.org/profiles/oldschool

Q: What if I like my layout but I want it bigger (and it won't)

A: Then keep your layout - enjoy the player (even though it's smaller) it will still play the same regardless!

Q: I'm asked this a lot: "I like your music ~ can I just use your code?"

A: No, this is my profile and my player you need to create your own!

Q: I want to update my music do I need to change my code?

A: No it will auto change as you update your profile on projectplaylist

Q: Do I have to set up a account with projectplaylist?

A: No you don't have to do anything but if you want the music on your profile then yes you do.

Q: Something is wrong with my player - it was working but now I'm getting a message on it saying it's down.

A: Well like all web sites they at times go down for regular maintenance - Don't panic!!! Give it a chance and it will come back (If you want to click on my profile you'll see mine will probably be down too). If it's down for more than a day then go back on http://www.projectplaylist.com/ you may have to redo your code (but this doesn't happen very often).

Q: But I don't have a MULTI MEDIA section on my profile

A: Some layouts call it only a MEDIA section - it's the same thing.  If you still cant find it then click here and it will take you to it:   http://www.gaiaonline.com/account/multimedia/

Q: I got it to work but now my YOU TUBE video is gone - why?

A: Gaia will only allow one thing in your MULTIMEDIA section - so basically you have to choose (sorry it's a Gaia thing)

Q: Can I put it in my "signature" or my "about me" section?

A: Nope it will ONLY work in the MULTIMEDIA section

Q: Your "smart" do you also know how to get gold? (yes I'm asked this all the time)

A: NO NO NO NO!!!!! I don't so don't ask!

Thank you so much. I've been constantly trying to get my player to work on Gaia. It finally worked thanks to your help.

Re: Music players for Gaia

Is there, but really small?  Try switching from "current" over to "classic" on the profile layout.  That should show the whole thing.

Re: Music players for Gaia

I noticed that too...

I also found out that 360 is a better height for the playlist... my last song was cut in half with the 367

Re: Music players for Gaia

on post note for those who actually want the good way to grab the myspace player code,(needs to be from a myspace music profile though, use mine to see www.myspace.com/crommetro and try)

go to view source
the in the edit menu goto find next
and in the search use this Parameter {embed src="http://lads.myspace.com/music/musicplayer.swf?n=
and that will take you to where the player coding is, thats how i found it, well after
countless hours of digging :) i felt so great after words though.

Re: Music players for Gaia

Hi CROM,

I decided it was in a bad taste to let the music player automatically start when this topic was opened - so you're missing a post.

If your intention was to show the actual code behind the player, please use the <code> and </code> tags.

On the bright side, I liked the music so much that I added it my profile and sent a PM to some "techno" aficionados.  So if you were marketing the music - you did well.

Cool

CROM.

You also need to remove this comment:

he CROM, check out my weekly broadcast on Radio-Clubbing, or listen to the first letkiss & hyydro track "paris50" on my space. I would be pleased about your comment (May 23rd)

From this profile:

http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=106098907 

It's requiring a log on from what appears to be a personal server owned by the commenter.
