[release]YouStream is a simple addon, which in simple terms plays music via YouTube. In more complex terms, you’ve got an invisible video playing in the background.
I was hoping to complete more of it before releasing, but my exams are starting very soon (This Wednesday, to be precise) , so I’ve decided to release early. This obviously means there is a lot more to come - to be improved on later. My exams finish in early June, so I’ll have time to work on it some more around then.
Stop talking, give me YouStream now!
You can just scroll down to the end of the thread if you want. It’s simple to use, if you can’t figure it out, you aren’t smart enough to own GMod.
So, HTML panels. I smell crashes.
Yes, IE is shitty and crashes people. Nothing I can do about it. I don’t want to include Chrome/bass support, because I’m lazy / can’t work on anything right now.
I want to add a song, how do I do it?
Just go into the YouStream menu, by typing “!stream” in the chat, or entering “youstream_menu” in the console.
See that little search bar above the HTML panel? Yeah, use that. The YouTube one doesn’t work, because Valve forgot to add support for anything decent in their HTML panel.
Once you’ve got a list of videos in the HTML panel, just click on the one you want. Then click “Save current URL”
Done, it should be added.
I think Flapadar has terrible taste in music
Ok, I skipped to the end of the thread. Give me YouStream.
Here’s a little video for you to watch while I upload it.
YouStream is broken. Download gShark instead.
I’m too lazy to download and test it to see what’s in it. Tell me now.
Retrieves song info automatically,
Enable/disable the dimming of background sounds,
Serverside streaming feature with permissions,
Chat commands with HUDPaint autofill,
Few other things.[/release]
[release]The mighty todo list:
Tidy up code. It’s a mess.
Internal commentery. I don’t need it myself, but incase people want to edit.
Playlists - actually use them.
Maybe use YouTube API instead of HTML panel for searching.
lrc parser. Incase people want to tie lyrics to a song
If lyrics have been attached, show them in the HUD.
Volume control for music[/release]
This should now work well, as it was fixed in the GMod update on 29/6/10
