Mefi Music Standalone Player Script December 3, 2007 7:56 AM   Subscribe

In response to this thread: A little GreaseMonkey script to pop-out all the flash players (that use playlists) into new tabs/windows. Enjoy!

I know this doesn't address the bigger flash bug problem, but certainly helps with browsing the comments on songs without cutting the audio. It works on any page where there are the larger XML-based players.

Hey potch, a little help. I went to the page, clicked on the "install this script" button and the page turned into a page of "code". Then I tried using MeMu and nothing different happened. I'm sure I'm missing something. Could you help me a little bit with this?

micayetoca: Do you have GreaseMonkey installed, and is it enabled?

Ooooooooh, I see, sorry potch, I'll get GreaseMonkey.

Doesn't seem to really do anything for me. I'm unclear on what it's actually supposed to do.

tehloki: Look under the right side (under Stream the RSS feed). You'll see a little flash player which can be popped out.

I'm looking for an excuse to build more functionality into this script.

Current ideas:
-Temporary, session based playlist built into a poppable player
-'Enqueue' option on each song post supporting the above player
-AJAXalicious adding to your playlists (to cut down on page loads, and thus, music interruptions)

Any little music ponies people just can't live without?

Oh boy, I would love it if it was easier to add songs to playlists. The feature feels kind of clunky right now I'd love to be able to quickly add a few songs to a playlist and then just listen through (for example, a quick playlist of all the new songs on the front page).

Also, is there a place to see and search everyone's playlists? Or does one have to go to a song page, hope it's playlisted, and then click on those playlists?

Thanks for doing all this, potch.
