Media Gallery/Streaming Page

#1 » Post by Nyeriah » 31 Jan 2016 04:53

As some may know from my in-game announcements, I have started working yesterday on a "media gallery" page for us. Even thought it wasn't really planned for the soon future, it's something that crossed our mind several times already and we've acknowledged it as something that would be extremely beneficial to our server.

Sharing images:
- Images would still need to be uploaded off-site but we'd be offering a way to keep them linked to one place and easily shareable to visitors checking our server out. Additionally, we're likely to be implementing a tag at forums to display full albums from our gallery.

Sharing videos:
- The same fashion as sharing images. We're likely to be adding promotional videos to the "featured content" section of the gallery's landing page.

Sharing stream sessions:
- We'll be supporting Twitch and YouTube live stream sessions. To start a session you just need to register at the gallery's landing page.

Now, now, most things aren't working still but what works so far is:

- Registration of profiles
- Theather mode once clicking the panel behind the featured content image (which will also probably be used everywhere else as well)

I have already started working on the streaming page per se, arnis has also helped me fetching some base to be worked on that I'll be trying to implement. So far the stream page can be accessed at http://www.truewow.org/Media?session

Which leads me to the question which motivated this topic: would it be easier to access the streams by the streamer's name or by the session ID? Notice that I'll be also scripting the "closed session" option, which are sessions that can only be accessed by using the streamer's session key code.

From my point of view, I believe it'd be easier to share them by the channel/streamer's name, but on the other hand sharing it by ID is more practical from the development point of view, but not a big deal either way.

Note that what you see now is merely a skeleton and many things may yet change until release http://www.truewow.org/Media

Sharing by channel/streamer's name is by far the easier option from a users PoV, but then we'd start running into some complaints about how inactive users have taken channel/stream names that people desire, so I'd recommend the id system :D

Well that's not exactly our problem, they can't two twitch/youtube channels with the same name can they? :P

I've went with channel name, so now if you try to access the link I provided above without a streamer name it'll give you an error page. For now the only working one's http://www.truewow.org/Media?session=arnis5

Yeah, there surely is a lot of things to do :P

New!
1) Scripted fetching channel data from Twitch (It'll properly display the offline image if the channel is offline or can't be found) ex. http://www.truewow.org/Media?session=test (no further details yet)
2) Theater mode on stream page scripted
3) Any stream should be available now as long as the profile has been registered

The page is back up, but it may still look like crap in the new theme. I'll finish it when I get the time, other priorities for now.
