Hi everybody

 

I did once "again" what everyone is doing .. after myspace and facebook I made a Twitter profile ...

reason to this is the news article of James about the Twittercast who makes it possible to update every x-minutes the Twitter profile with the current song

 

I made a download at the shoutcast forum (link was written into James article)

I made a download of both scripts .. the short and the advanced version

In fact I only need the short script ... so "current song" and nothing else

I uploaded everything to my server ... and guess what ... It don't work !!

I can't even see the php pages ... Incredible

 

My question is easy :

Has anybody an operational script who works 100% ?

without it has to be re-written :helpsmilie:

 

The short way .. I'm a guy who is willing to succeed if I take the time to manage these things .. but if it don't works I smash it to the wall next to Me :surrender:

So I would be thankfull and pleased if anyone is able to help Me with this problem

 

Attached you'll find both rar files who has been downloaded by Me at the shoutcast forum

Thanks to all who can reach Me any help :kiss::rolling:

Hey GKR... Im at work at the mo, but yes I have got this working fine with very little changes. If you email or add me on msn I will send you how i did it when i get home tonight.

 

What we decided to also do was to make the updates have the listen link for people to use to automaticaly tune in without having to either remember it or find it on our main site

I agree 100% with you Fozzy

but its a going with the flow ..

In fact it was my idea to keep my profiles at myspace and facebook only and I wasn't interested to Twitter

However that tool (Twittercaster) got my attention and lets say .. I'm gonna give it a try ... If the exposure don't work out as it should do ... I still can stop my account ..

But things like that do need some time before any results can be seen

Lets say = to be continued :)

I think twitter is so crap its untrue how the hell can people get hooked on that crap ...

I can't imagine that it is a very good idea to update the song playing every time it changes. I thought about implementing a social network updating feature into StationEngine, but ruled it out based on the fact that it would be annoying to everyone who ever follow you on those sites. I doubt they want to see every song that you are playing.

depends how your station runs and how you use the show title. We dont change titles on every tune as our djs play live on vinyl decks and cdjs as well so we dont change title apart from on a show change as oppose to a tune change. Our shows are 1hr30min long so its not as frequent as how a lot of other stations work. So for us i works well as its frequent but not annoyingly so

A lot of thanks for sending Me your files, I made already a reply to your email account

But the thing still don't work ...

Hey GKR... MX (Malcs)

KRISISDnB.COM

I'm gonna put my Twitter account on "hold" .. and if it don't work out .. I guess I'm gonna use my time to manage other tools who do succeed :)

 

Anyway .. many thanks to MX aka Malcs for your input .. its much appreciated ! (Y)(Y)(Y)

 

To Fozzy :

Please don't over-react by seeing the word "Twitter" ...

In fact I do agree with you 100% x 100% .. but accept that some things has to be discovered .. even I'm against the setup of Twitter itself .. it still makes a lot of people moving and it got into a short amount of time a huge impact to people who are networking

To be honest .. thats what We also do as members to this forum and at places such as myspace, facebook and others

To Me and my project, MySpace made it possible to achieve some most important contacts into the world of music - and that profile is available to anyone ...

My profile at FaceBook is more or less a restricted network, with both national, international contacts and friends of Me ... 95% of those people are known by myself. My FaceBook has a lot of "real" and privat accounts of artists and that way We are getting in touch with eachother both on the www and into the real world

 

But ok .. subject of this topic was Twittercast and was not meant as topic to discuss Twitter itself :)

I was only in search for some help :rolling:

Twitter is just another way for me to contact people who dont have myspace or facebook. I find it crazy having a short character limit. But its what people go with these days and like GKREurope said, going with the flow! Twitter is actually attracting more people to BW than live.com searches. That says something on 'being up to date' with the latest tech.

 

Its totally up to you, nobody forces you to use it, i only use it to contact people i cant contact anywhere else :)

Big ups GKR !!! I was tearing my hair out a bit as well as i couldnt work out why it wasnt working for you. Glad you got it fixed.

 

As I said originally, its not that I like Twitter, as i DONT, but having an active presense on every social network site will get traffic coming my way

 

Twitter me at :

www.twitter.com/krisisdnb

 

(soz a bit of mindless spam there but had to be done!)

I downloaded the twittercast from the Winamp forum and I have one minor problem with it that I solved, sort of.

 

If I don't have the twittercast_multi.php page open then my twitter page doesn't get updated. So I keep the twittercast_multi.php page open. Now the guy that wrote the thing says I really don't need to do this but it won't work any other way. That's all I can suggest anybody try that's having difficulty with it.

Hi TrueHeart,

 

I wanna share with you the files who has been provided by KRISISDnB.COM

Only thing you have to do is :

- change username and pass (API.php file)

- into the other file you change your listen link aka location of your asx file (twittercast.php)

- make a "Command to run" on your server or pc and insert the complete URL of the location

for example www.name.domain/twitter/twittercast.php where you have uploaded both files + title.txt

I had also some major probs .. but it worked out very good

I couldn't manage it to work on a Win Server 2003 .. but Linux and other servers where your website is located works perfect

See the attached rar for all details

PS : ALL CREDITS go to KRISISDnB.COM .. so give him a +rep please !

Cheers for the support GKR, is appreciated!!

 

You helped me before with the wax file type which i really like so anything i can do to help people on here i will.

 

Get adding friends on twitter tho GKR !!! Not much point having status updates on there if nobody sees them !! Your in a better position for your station to appeal to a lot more people than mine as we are more an underground form of music but were already seeing hits on my site from twitter

Do you mean with this adding random people or specific ?

I don't know if people at twitter can be added by selection of region or interests

Untill now, since the install of the tool I'm receiving daily 3 untill 5 new followers aka notifications by email

Feedback is welcome (Y)

Get adding friends on twitter tho GKR
