- @Dais!: Thanks for the feedback. I have received some comments that I should have done this all in "HTML5" so that it would be accessible in all browsers on all platforms. Obviously, that sounds nice but it's not really plausible right now. The best I can do is go with the NaCl approach and make it as simple as possible to install (2 clicks from the player page and the music starts).
Wow, that updated VGM format looks fierce. Really, though, I just need to know 2 things: 1) Where can I find a bit of open source code that plays a format; and 2) Where can I find an organized archive of (preferably metadata-rich) chiptunes in that format?

- Umm, I think this is the latest source for vio2sf:
Hope this helps.

- @Knurek: Thanks! That looks like what I need.
Yay, I get to re-apply all my hacks and mods. But it will be worth it if the growing list of problematic Nintendo DS chiptunes gets fixed.

Umm, you don't seem to have all the Dreamcast games I've ripped, I wanted to give a listen to Dreamcast version of Shiren, and it doesn't seem to be there.
The rip is available here: Dreamcast Music Archive
Also, the site doesn't seem to like european accent characters. This set for instance:
You can't search by the composer name, Chris Hülsbeck and it does not display correctly in the site as well.

The Dreamcast situation: I got the entire DSF archive from ftp.modland.com (137 titles) and ran them through an automated process to add them to the site. However, my process rejected all but about 50 of them due to a severe lack of metadata.
Then I learned of dsf.joshw.info. I had a specific request for Skies of Arcadia. I tried to add that but found a bug in my automated process.
So it's on my list to get all the archives from dsf.joshw.info (I trust they have better metadata than modland?) and fix my import process.
And, yeah, you discovered my severe weakness regarding non-English languages and characters. :-)

- I'll tell you something you need to add.... fade out. All the tracks just play twice and end suddenly :P

- Site be dead, the registrar has suspended the domain.
- by MultimediaMike at 2:14 PM EDT on October 7, 2012
- Site be back, the registrar isn't tech savvy enough to notify domain holders when their domains are close to expiration.
Sorry for the downtime. The effort continues.
