If there is a consistant signature (first few bytes of every file) youcan at least do a check for that with the new code I checked in a fewdays ago.
> Unfortunately, this means I've left myself open security wise - this> seems to be an issue with GetID3, however.Please explain how you see this...I think I know what you mean...he means he has to shut getID3 off completely to get it to work whichmeans there is zero verification of *any* file being uploaded, whichis true until you do what I suggest above.
>> 2 big requests> -uploading of media via http URL, to include the youtube kidsYes, this is very important...having a link to media that is not on theserver. This works behind the scenes I believe (Victor?), so hopefullyits not hard to make external paths easy to use.It works for *streaming* -- that is, we redirect M3U files to pointsomewhere else and it is easy to do this for video streaming files aswell (I forget the file extension of the M3U-like equivalent forvideo)
There is some code tucked away in several places that assume thephysical file is living on the server. The biggest problem is that youwould have absolutely no control over the physical file, so activeactions like replacing, renaming, tag stamping (of the ID3 variety)including licensing and passive ones like gathering information aboutthe files size, bitrate properties, etc. would all have to be disabledin the user interface. One of the many consequences of not having thisinformation is that users can't search on any file format infomation.
Overall the huge issue is sync'ing -- someone deletes, moves orrenames the physical file but ccHost doesn't know about it orvisa-versa.
> -Uploading of a batch of clips at the same timeHmmm...I haven't tried to do this actually, but looks like there is asupport for an archive.Brett deals with videos we really he's taking about importing a bunchof stuff. I think this is the same thing you asked about the otherday.
> -Thumbnails!I'm working on this in the form of a new file browser btw...so we canhave something akin to a file manager like nautilus, the mac finder orwindows (icon view, thumbnail view, list view, etc)He's talking about extracting thumbnails from videos here, not shrinking images.
