Embedded MO3 into webpage instead of MID
« on: 31 Jul '02 - 15:44 »
For most of the time, I hate the webpage that embed a MID file because it's sound so different on different sound card.

MO3 was truelly a great idea (I've dream of it several years ago), though some of the musician retreat from it and change to MP3, but tracking is an art.

How about when going to a webpage and XMPLAY automatically fire up and play the embedded MO3?

It's great! No more sucking MID sound!

I don't know anything about browser plugins, but for someone who does know about that stuff, it should be pretty easy to make a MO3-supporting plugin with BASS :)

Now I'm change the .MID to .MO3, not as good sound quality as TIMIDITY but still great!

You can create an ActiveX control for Internet Explorer, but you need to get it digitally signed (using Microsoft Authenticode) so people can download it to their computer automatically via a self-installing CAB archive. You can bundle BASS.DLL within this CAB archive.

Digitally signing software can cost a lot of dollars if you are serious about it. Using standard setups nobody will be able to use your ActiveX control except if they manually download and install it (using regsvr32).
The hole point of this is for the ActiveX plug-in to be downloaded and installed when people visit your site (only after clicking a button of course).

A Mozilla compatible plug-in (Netscape, Firefox, Mozilla) can also be made (this is probably easier as the signing part isn't mandatory here).

- Give it to me baby! Aha! aha!

Yes, the expensive part is getting a code sigining certificate from one of the various certificate companies. The rest of it would be reasonably easy - just a small ActiveX wrapper for bass.dll, and use the BASS url functions to stream the MO3. A UI's not even needed.

Another possibility would be to write a DirectShow filter for MO3. That way all that's needed is to install that and then people can use whatever media player they like to play MO3 files/

There is a BASS based DirectShow filter available here...

I guess you still have the problem of delivering it to the end-user though.
