VIP Support Aersia + Foobar2000

    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has found out a way to play Aersia through foobar rather than through the browser?

    It's definitely possible, it can add internet locations and stream from them. You'd just need to set up some sort of script to find all the audio files and throw them into a playlist. I might do it if I'm not too lazy in the next few days.

    Of course you could always just download all of them if you don't care about streaming.

    I know this is an old thread, but I post in it anyways. I made the playlist file for VIP. The input source file is from vip.aersia.net/roster.xml.

    Download output.pls on MEGA

    You can use this playlist with VLC and Winamp.

    While I made this list, I notice that the XML is not valid. To make it valid do this:

    • Change "&" on titles to "&"
    • Change "&" on all location URLs to "%26"
    • There is an incomplete location end tag, somewhere. :p
    • Change "© & ℗" to "(c)"

    In case someone want to rebuild the list, here is the python code I used.

    Track parser.py (open)
    Code:
    #!/usr/local/bin/python2.7
        
    from xml.dom import minidom
    xmldoc = minidom.parse('roster.xml')
    tracklist = xmldoc.getElementsByTagName('track') 
    counter = 0
    outputFile=""
    outputFile += "[playlist]\n"
    outputFile += "NumberOfEntries=%d\n" % len(tracklist)
    for s in tracklist :
        counter = counter + 1
        locationURL = (s.getElementsByTagName("location")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue)
        creator = (s.getElementsByTagName("creator")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue)
        title = (s.getElementsByTagName("title")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue)
        outputFile += ("File%d=%s\n" % (counter,locationURL))
        outputFile += ("Title%d=%s - %s\n" % (counter,creator,title))
    # print outputFile
    file = open("output.pls", "w")
    file.write(outputFile)
    file.close()

    It just occurred to me that PLS files are just text files. Pretty damn slick. I might just make something that will automatically create a PLS file server-side, then people could just load that up directly.

    Thats going to be cool, Cats.

    I was thinking about adding the playlist to https://code.google.com/p/navi-x/. It's a playlist online manager for streaming media. Unfortunateley the service is down, because they are moving to new servers. A drawback about navi-x is that they use their own playlist format.

    PLX example.plx (open)
    Code:
    version=1

    The playlists are explored through a plugin on XBMC. You could configure if the playlist is public or private(just for your IP).

    Goodbye!

    Oh yeah, I remember XBMC when I was trying to find out if it worked with Chromecast. I forgot what the answer was, because I discovered I didn't really need either of them.

    Navi-X looks like a fancy way to get the playlist across all devices. The only question is: Is it possible to import the playlist automatically from the server? If not, it would create extra steps of logging into the site itself and uploading the playlist manually every time there's an update. That would be a total bummer.

    Many thanks to copper for doing most of the work on this one, but I thought it would be nice to automate the entire process. As long as you have python installed, this will create the latest playlist file.

    Updated track parser.py (open)

    # convert to roster-fix.xml
    filein = open("roster.xml", "r")
    fileout = open("roster-fix.xml", "w")
    outputFile = ""
    outputFile += filein.readline()
    outputFile += filein.readline()
    outputFile += filein.readline()
    while filein.readline():
        line1 = filein.readline()
        creator = filein.readline()
        creator = creator.replace("&", "&")
        title = filein.readline()
        title = title.replace("© & ℗", "(c)")
        title = title.replace("&", "&")
        location = filein.readline()
