Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum for posting, but i've been reading threads on this site for a few months now.. seems like a decent place to get info... so, hello everyone! My name's Will, (musical moniker on soundcloud / fb etc is StrangeFlow, i make electronic music, funk, hip hop, etc... ) ..I'm 25, I'm in Lansing , Michigan, my hometown (but still have residency in NorCal, where Im trying to get back to in a few months) I have some experience programming but i'm sure not as much as some of the experts on here :)

i dont know if it's bad etiquette to post a question in my first thread but i have a good question that hasn't been able to get resolved, and I figured someone on here might have some good advice..

Does anyone on here use soundcloud? they have a really nifty timed-comments bar, you can check it out on any soundcloud music page... Ive started seeing it on vimeo recently, I think it's something thats starting to catch on. Anyway,, I had an idea for a website, but the thing is, it would require a timed-comments bar. But.. my problem is, since I'm not as much of an expert as some of the people on here, what would it take to program it? I'm learning some C#, and I heard it would be that or php.. but.. I don't know.. any advice on that timed comments thing?

Any good points in the right direction would be extremely appreciated! Thanks everyone! I look forward to posting more in the future on this forum, and I'll gladly offer any of my advice on topics I am knowledgable. :)

Well, I don't use 'soundcloud' and have no idea what it is.
Therefore, I have no idea what a timed-comments bar is.
:o
Can you provide a link to what you are talking about as I don't have a clue yet!
:confused:

yea..

soundcloud.com/strangeflow , there's a bunch of tracks you can click play and listen to, you can see the waveform, and as the track scrolls along, there are comments on the bottom of the track. that's the timed comments thing im talking about.

i want to figure out what direction to go to try and code something similiar to this. ive started seeing it pop up on video sites too now.. viddler is one, i think vimeo (might) be using it, but i might be remembering that one wrong. the point is, what language should i use? any help in coding? any help whatsoever, you know? what should i do? because i have an idea to employ this type of thing into a website im building, but it would be slightly different, and not for an mp3, but i dont know how to start tbh.

even if the comments are stationary, and not timed, that would be fine too if i could get help on that because that would really help me getting into the the right direction for my project,

any help is reall appreciated!

I might take a crack at it, but I'm not sure what you want - are you going to reconstruct the entire player, or use the one embedded from the other site and you just want to be able to add comments?
