    Default Radio Station

    What is the best way to go with a Radio Station? We want ads which a client can purchase, upload a banner and have start showing without our involvement, all from an admin page where they will create an account. Would like to have a header rotating banner, one on each side of the page (beyond a 800 viewport) and a footer rotating banner. We also want employee profiles, a blog, a streaming QT page or ten, and a few recorded video pages etc.

    Any ideas it html, php or cgi is better? What is available already that could be converted for use as a radio station? Had looked into just using Auction software, but renaming links accordingly. Unfortunately it limits flexibility. Any help would be most appreciated.

    "Better" is what you are most comfortable with. HTML/php/SQL will probably be what you need for this though.

    SQL Database will be needed to store all the things you want to save/show (banners, etc). The admin pages can be in php to post get and upload the images from the customers to the database and the main page can be php to pull from the database which banners/images/things to show.

    The rest is basic (for the most part) page making skills and can be done in a variety of ways.

    I doubt your going to find a turn-key solution for this, but I will look anyway.

    In addition to what Blizz said already, it would be hard to find an already made script for this with as much flexibility as you need. Your best bet would be to custom write this said script to suit your needs. For some basic advise/tutorials, check out the following sites:

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks! I didn't expect an out of the box solution to be available, but at least now I know which route to persue! If you hear of anything, it would be great to know, but I will get started with what you have advised, and see what I can come up with!

    Always remember, if you get stuck on any piece of coding you can always post here and get help.

    hey...I think it might be hard to find all that stuff in one package, but building on a streaming app and mixing in some ad management and stuff may be the ticket (as some people already indicated! ). You may find a few handy scripts on a site like Codango that you can team up to get the job done.

    I ran a quick search for some radio station stuff...looks like there may be plenty of stuff for the streaming aspect of your site. http://codango.com/php/fnc/search/?t...adio%20station. Theres also video managers, etc...all of that. This project will probably take some creativity and melding on your side, but hopefully you can find some good scripts to work from?

    Good luck! hope my advice is of some use to you?

    I think all the functions are in the following script:
