    PHP website with database

    I was thinking of making a php website layout so i could select out of different playlists using album covers or a mysql database with all the songs/playlist in it.

    Has anybody already tryed this ?

    Then you could also make a good search function in it and make just like you want it.

    If you plan on doing this on windows let me know. I have used Dreamweaver to make a html page with all the cd covers on my cd collection. Click on the cd and wham the playlist starts playing the tunes. Its a awesome idea for the computer iliterate, so they can play music. Also if you want to do this, but dont want all the bells and whisltes of IE rename the file extension to hta.
    example:

    musicpage.html -->rename it to-->musicpage.hta much better IMO

    its a possibility
    would just have to do a recursion loop through a directory with the mp3s
    granted theyre all sorted properly according to folders it should work
    would be no way to read the id3 tags, it would have to go by folder name and filename

    Why couldn't you read the ID3 tag? PHP can open the file and read it without a problem. In fact, there are plenty on prebuilt ones on google..

    id3 tags arent written in plain ascii
    you cant just open the file and read that info, youd need some sort of module to do it or pass it through some command line function
    for speed purposes too, it would be a much wiser option to identify by filename and folder name

    well i guess it is
    ill have to try that script
    i opened up an mp3 file in a text editor to see and theres is acutally some plain ascii text but its scattered about and not in a manner that is easy to read
    i guess all the script is doing is removing all the stuff besides that text and then organizing

    I can already read the complete dir and put all the data in a database.
    Now i also see that a lot of songs don't have any id info in it.
