After a few years of posting videos all over the place I realized that I could feed that into fraktus.com, or simly into a blog.
So I installed blog.fraktus.com, follow me there to know what music I am currently listening, what problems I try to resolve in my code, or where am I travelling lattely...
I released ghostss.com. my entry to the Nine Inch Nails' Ghosts Film Festival.
It's a web site that host a video remixing application. The user can select a few settings and the web site can render them as standard flv files.
At WWDC 2008 I started thinking about an automatic music video clip builder that would use the music of NIN Ghosts.
During the few days of rest of the summer I started thinking about embedding a video renderer on a web server and making it available through an xml file and a few php scripts. I started prototyping tat with success.
While I was at the WWDC 2007 I realized that the Flickr download from eXo was broken! The Flickr API has changed and I had to change the code that generate the wed address of pictures to fix the problem. Anyway there is a new version 1.2.4 that fixes the problem.
A new music track is only, Heavy Moon, please go to the Music tab abd listen to it, it's a very cool track done with a lot of Metasynth processing.
The Guitar loops are made by Serge Devadder, thanks for helping me on this Serge!
The visualizer has been registered on MacUpdate, I hope it will not cause too much hits on the Flickr database because they could close my API key.
I still need to implement a decent cache system in order to minimize the impact on the bandwidth.
The reason of the slow update is the fact that I lost my mother and it was not easy to handle.
Using pictures in the visualizer by sending query to flickr is done, try the version 1.2 on the download page.
It was quiet easy to implement and it's fun to see those pictures comming on the screen releated to the keywords of the music you are listening.
A beta version for Mac Intel is available on the download page, after some tests I will publish it on the download web sites.
A feedback form has been added, it's an easy way to send your comments.
eXo has been compiled for Mac Intel, I am currently beta testing it with some users.
4 december : I finally made it, the eXo visualizer has reached 1.0 and is available as a plugin for iTunes running Mac OS X.
Dreamhost did offer a 80% reduction for the first 888 person registering to their service, so I did jump and now my site is hosted on their servers.
Everything is going fine, working on releasing the version 1.0 of eXo.
Did add better streaming of my videos.
