media hive: web based media system

Category: Showcase

Media Hive is a web-based media/playlist management system with an emphasis on rich browser interfaces. The goal for the project is for it to also be a remote front-end for iTunes (estimated: month or so).

The system is skin-able (a la winamp) so you can tweak the players look and functionality via JavaScript and CSS.

The quick access bar is a very good idea. It is not well implemented though (took me quite a while to figure out hat it was doing and how it worked).

Looks promising but still very alpha.

Had a great time at The AJAX Experience.

In the presence of some amazing geeks…

every time i click on the bar at the top it takes about 10 seconds to load the results into the window and as far as i can see theres no loading animation to tell me its doing this. This lead me to click randomly and when one did load it would just carry on changing. Not a very good implemetation but a good idea I guess.

This is a great alternative to dragging my USB hard drive to work when I want to listen to my home mucic collection. Should work even better when I get fiber at home.

I don’t know what is going on, the page reloads completely new when I do some action like resort or moving a column. And the result is: nothing. Is this web 2.0? I feel a little bit taken for a ride. My browser: FF1.5

So, what’s that?

Thanks to everybody for taking the time to check out the media hive. I appreciate the feedback, and will try to address all of the comments here prior to the release of version 1.0. Please continue to share your thoughts. Cheers!
