here's how it looks on itch.io
basically you upload the exported zip to itch and set it to "this file will be played in the browser"
then you can upload a zip with higher quality audio and make that purchasable
got the source code uploaded to the military industrial website: https://github.com/blackle/blamscamp
I made the itch.io link public so there's a smaller chance that it will disappear https://blackle.itch.io/titled-songs
a little roadmap in order of importance:
- importing of previously exported zips for editing
- bulk import of mp3 files, with data automatically populated by ID3 tags
- built-in mp3 re-encoder to give the option of reducing audio quality for public listening
- make the player work good on mobile when embedded on itch.io
made a video explaining how to use it, and best practices I found to make it look as good as possible on the store page :>
@SuricrasiaOnline Less "public domain programming" and more "one shark" in this case, but cheers for making it and making it freely available!
@easrng yeah, on itch it requires a fixed width unfortunately. allegedly dynamic sizing only works for unity projects
@SuricrasiaOnline Also the entire track name should be a link to play, not just the play/pause button.
@joe if selling on itch.io, you can upload a zip file that contains lossless files, which a person gets access to after payment. though also according to caniuse you should be able to add flac already and it should work on most browsers. haven't tested tho
@SuricrasiaOnline unrelated but looking forward to more music! didn't expect to enjoy these so much :)
@SuricrasiaOnline if I wouldn't work for a company I'd actually start my own Bandcamp with Blackjack and Hookers. I already know how to detect copyrighted music.
@koyuchan I've taken to saying "without blackjack and hookers". Very fitting considering Epic's business model (loot boxes, i.e. gambling).
@SuricrasiaOnline this is awesome, i'd honestly forgotten that things besides games were on itch, but having a familliar interface for it like this really makes it seem like a good alternative
@SuricrasiaOnline holy fuckin shit, i didn't even think about selling my music on itch, and now this? thanks!
@SuricrasiaOnline no that's impossible, you can't make anything good with vanilla js! im reporting you to the licensing board for programmers.
(no joke, i plan to self host some music on my website, and was looking for something just like this. thank you, thank you)
@SuricrasiaOnline i've been thinking about m3u or making a more modern replacement of it. because i like the idea of offline playlists.
what do you think of this
@lainduck I wonder if you can put a data URL in an m3u file
