Browser Based Audio/Video/Picture Player With Search Capabilities
When someone logs into their account at MyPod, they will immediately be brought to their media player where they can search their home media collection. There will be a dynamic search bar where as the user types, the list will automatically refresh with the corresponding query. Furthermore, there will be a bar on the left that the user can specify whether they want to view their images, music, video,
or playlists currently being broadcasted to their MyPod account. When an option is finally chosen, the right side of the screen will list all of the files available for access including their metadata, as
appropriate, such as title, album, artist, and so on. Then, when a file is chosen, the appropriate method for presenting the file will appear on the website in place of the list of files. Finally, the beauty of MyPod is that the media player can then be minimized within the web browser, while running, where all that remains is simply Google's homepage and a control bar for MyPod docked to the bottom of the user's web browser.
Lets say there are three computers:
Computer 1 has all of a particular user's media files stored on it (music, video, and/or images).
Computer 2 is the computer the user is currently accessing [url removed, login to view] with.
Computer 3 sets up a stream from Computer 1 to Computer 2. Computer 3 should never need to actually store or stream any of the user's files.
MyPod will basically be a web-based iTunes that can be minimized, while still running, to the Google homepage.
The program must be graphically pleasant and without any bugs. Please email me with any questions.
