Blog Video Tag Creator

Keeping my flash video organized is quite a lot of chore for me. From inserting an entry into the database, finding the album cover art and upload it to Flickr and lastly put the lyric of the song into my blog.

Putting the lyric into the blog itself is quite tedious, especially creating the top part of the entry where it shows the thumbnail of the album, artist, song title and album name. Furthermore, it is a repetitive task that I get sick of doing.

Actually, this is what I’m talking about

So, I fire up Visual C#, and start designing mini application that will automate this process. And walla, I have the code generator already. This should make the job of adding a new lyric to the blog really easy.

Anyway, all the values are pulled from the database. Meaning, I add the entry into the database. The new video will be available in my Flash Video Player, and the entry will also visible here for me to generate the HTML code. How I love automation, and how now I started to love Visual C#.

But would it be nice if the video is displayed here too. Lets extend this application a little. C# WebBrowser control. Lovely!!. Just what I need to display the video here.

Lovely. Now I have standalone player for all my flash videos. This may not concern others, but the thing that i want to tell is, how free I am today at office. LOL. Just for today though…
