Hi everyone !
This new free and open source package allows you to publish on the Web
your contest audio recordings done with Win-Test v4.
Once setup, anyone will be able to search in your log and listen to his
(her) QSOs, if audio was recorded at that time.
The requirements are :
- Win-Test 4.3.0 or better
- One .wt4 log and its associated audio recording(s)
- Web hosting space (available space must be at least the size of the
mp3 file(s) + 1MB)
- PHP must be available on the hosting space (No mySQL database required)
- Minimal knowledge on web hosting and FTP usage
1/ In Win-Test, export timestamps in a file (Contextual menu of the
recorder window). Use the raw format. All the mp3 related to this
contest log must be present in the log directory when exporting the
2/ Unzip locally the wtQsoPlayer.zip package
3/ Modify the wtQsoPlayer.php file to fit your configuration :
Lines 21 to 23 : Enter your callsign, the contest name and its year
Lines 57 to 61 : Enter the subdirectory path where the mp3 files will be
stored into, the subdirectory path where the mp3 clips will be
temporarily stored, and the name of the timestamps file (see 1/).
Lines 72 to 77 : Available band(s) for this contest
Line 84 : Available mode(s) for this contest
4/ Once done, transfer *all* .php files to your hosting space, in an
appropriate directory (I used /wtQsoPlayer but yours can be named
5/ Create the clips files subdir (under the 4/ directory) (see line 58)
6/ Create the mp3 files subdir (under the 4/ directory) (see line 57)
7/ Transfer *all* the mp3 files into this last subdirectory
8/ Transfer also the timestamps file into this same directory
9/ You can also transfer a picture of your QSL in the root directory (it
must be named qsl.jpg)
To sum up (with the current settings) :
To restrict the access to the subdirectories from the Web, you can
create empty index.html files and store them into those subdirs.
You can also use an index.html or index.php file in the "root" directory
to disallow the access to the search before the deadline date of log
submission (see below).
To access the search :
Note : To respect the contesting ethics it is advised to publish your
data and mp3 file _AFTER_ the deadline of the log submission. It means
that CQWW SSB 2009 files can be online from today, and CQWW CW 2009
files should be online only after January 15.
The extracted clips are totally compatible with the mp3 standard, and
their ID3 tags are automatically filled. It means you can save and
replay them locally.
This package is totally open. It has been written quickly, the errors
processing is minimal, and it can certainly be optimized. I'm sure that
some talented coders who use Win-Test will be able to improve it (to
allow several searches in different contests for example) and/or design
nicer pages (CSS gurus welcome !). Feel free to submit and share your
work with the community !
As a demonstration, you can currently listen to your QSOs with FY5KE (if
available) during the CQWW SSB 2009 at http://f6fvy.free.fr/wtQsoPlayer/
