I think I finally figured out how to handle large file uploads.   So this means that I'm going to be totally rewriting the Music & Artists page and the Share Music post message page.   You'll upload your mixes directly to lolli.org and they'll be hosted and streamed from here.

Seems like that'll be quite a space hog and bandwidth consumer. I would imagine people will take advantage of it a lot. Out of curiosity, did you figure something out to make it work well as is, or is it kind of just a "throw more resources at it" kind of problem?

Thanks for the work!

Allowing users to upload large files is a hurdle in the .net world.   Users are either forced to write an HTTPHandler or a HTTPModule.   Microsoft has released a new AJAX Toolkit File Uploader control.

http://www.asp.net/AJAX/AjaxControlToolkit/Samples/AsyncFileUpload/AsyncFileUpload.aspx

It basically allows the user to upload a file into their Session and then it's saved to the server.    I have reserved space on a new server just to host and stream mixes.    All of the stream-able mixes on lolli are currently hosted there and it's working out well.   The new server has a medium trust environment, so that means I couldn't write a large file uploader using a HTTPHandler or a HTTPModule.   This AsyncFileUpload control allows me to.

I'm going to be accepting up to 200 meg mixes.   The bandwidth from hosting and streaming these mixes will not affect lolli because they're hosted on a seperate server.

There are a few downsides to using this object:
- There isn't a progress bar.   You have to wait.
- Once you start the upload, you can't stop it.

I think these are minor inconveniences for the ability gained.

Ok guys, I'm almost done!   I finished the file uploader code yesterday.   Users can upload up to 200MB mixes.    I'm now converting all current music & artists to the new system.    The current method of adding your music has been shut down just now.   I'll reopen it after I'm done converting current Music & Artists.

Is it going to stay the same where we can upload our links in the music and artists section so we can keep track of our downloads on our personal hosts, or are you doing away with that and having a strictly lolli player?

there should be a lolli.org monthly mix. Every month just have a different dj do a mix for the site, kinda like the essential mix on radio 1.

no, you upload to lolli.  It's hosted on lolli and both streamed and downloaded from lolli.

I'll be adding a lolli music player to whomever's profiles what it.   For the DJs uploading music, you'll have a special tab listing everything you've uploaded.

That actually would be cool.  Have the tracklisting and stuff on the main page of lolli for a month.  That would be totally up to Rich tho.  I wouldn't really want to go with a voting system or anything like that.

Thanks Mitch.  Everything is stream-able now.   I'm still working on a main Artists page.    Be sure to checkout the "Music Charts" page though.

Each time I try to post my mix everything seems to go well untill after the upload from my computer it sends me back to the "Step 1" page.  After a second attempt I get an error message that the file I've uploaded already exhists on your server.  I can't seem to get to the "Artist Info" or step three.  I'm sure it's me doing something wrong but I still need help.

Thanks!

Is your filesize under 200 meg and in .mp3 format?

Also, you need javascript fully enabled for this website.   If you have some type of javascript blocking, the uploader page will not work.

I just noticed that some of you guys haven't been able to the see the "My Music" link to the left.  I just fixed this.   Use the My Music page to edit your artist info and mix info.

I'm building an Artists page right now.   But if you click on any of the artist names on the Mixes webpage, you'll be taken to your that DJ's profile.
