I’ve been quietly hacking away at my local videoDB installation and added some wonderful new features to the elegant template. All changes have now been committed to CVS and are available for testing.
Our site has lately been subject to misuse.
Especially the demo installation has been abused to place spam. In fact, about every 5 to 10 seconds, a new spam entry has been created in the database. I’ve taken measures to prevent this and hope the demo system is usable again. Please report any new problems here.
After upgrading demo site to PHP5, the youTube search is now publicly available for testing. To evaluate, drill down to a single movie and click the “Show trailers” link.
Upgraded videoDB demo to current CVS version. Contains new multi-user code that should fix some of the open issues. Generally, we should see some performance increases and more secure, better maintainable code.
Demo no longer requires login but can now be accessed as anonymous user.
To see all the latest features, make sure you’re using the “elegant” template. Currently “elegant” is the only ajax-enabled tempalte providing all functionality.
