Avenged Sevenfold - Nightmare (Deluxe Version) iTunes LP, nightmare lyric video mod.


i just downloaded this Nightmare iTunesLP with itlp files in it, but i noticed that there's a nighmare lyric video inside the itlp folder but when i load the LP to iTunes the lyric video was nowhere to be found.
so i modified the files inside the itlp folder and make the lyric video appear under the video menu. here it goes...

the files need to be modified were:
videos.css inside the css folder
videos.html inside the view folder
data.js inside the controllers folder and
video.js also inside the controllers folder

first open up videos.css and find /buttonVideo02.png); } then add this line right after it
#videos #video3  { left:563px; top:573px;  background:url(../images/videos/buttonVideo03.png); }

close and save it

next open up videos.html and find and delete it but do not delete and

close and save it

open data.js find thumb02.png then add this line after it
" }
{ string: "Nightmare Lyric Video",  XID : "", src : "USWBV1000357_APR-178-23-1280-720.m4v", duration: '6:16', poster: "thumb03.png" }   

close and save it

finally open video.js and find              { selector : "#video2", action : function () { bookletController.playNonLibraryContent(appData.videos[1])} }, then add after it              { selector : "#video3", action : function () { bookletController.playNonLibraryContent(appData.videos[2])} },
close and save it

then add the LP to the library
note: if you already add the LP to the library, remove it then add it again. if you dont do this the changes you made wont have any effects.

and here's how to add the duration of the videos. it'll appear at the bottom right corner just below the video box.

the files need to be modified were:
videos.css and data.js

open up video.css and find #videos #duration {
change the left:520px to left:861px and top:500px to top:530px
close and save it

then open data.js
the goal in editing the data.js is to make the duration displays the real duration of the videos
{ string: "Nightmare Music Video",            XID : "Warner:isrc:USWBV1000362", src : "", duration: '6:16', poster: "thumb01.png" },
and change the duration to 6:08
{ string: "The Making Of Nightmare Music Video",  XID : "", src : "USWBV1000360_APR-178-23-1280-720.m4v", duration: '8:44', poster: "thumb02.png" }
change the duration to 9:38
close and save it.

remember modifying the *.css only applies when the LP is reloaded to the library.

pics are coming really soon...

TAG!!! why this things were so important....

ever wonder why your mp3s only shows the file names, or even worst it looks like this "artist - track01.mp3" or "track01.mp3" or "unknown artist - unknown song - unknown album"?
even when you had the files renamed the song info still wont shows up.
i'll tell you why, cos it's not properly tagged!!!
you need to tag you music files so that any media player would be able to recognize who sings it and what song that plays.
there were lots of information can be embeded on a tag, such as the artist, the song title, the album, the cover, the composer etc
when an mp3 is properly tagged it dont matter what the file names were, any media player will only display the information it reads from the tag.
tagging an mp3 or any other formats can be done with any tag editor software or any media player with tag editing support such as iTunes, winamp, foobar2000, musicmatch, jetaudio etc.
and not only mp3s can be tagged, there were other multimedia formats that support tagging such as m4a, flac, wma, musepack (thats all i know) even now some video files can be tagged to such as mp4 or m4v.
so for a better viewing and playing, tag your multimedia files with their proper respective informations.


okay now...ever since 4 days ago i started consolidating all of my music and video files with iTunes.
its not an easy task but i'm sure it'll be done in about a month or two.
it would take some time to copy 289GB of music files from one folder to another with a limit 2GB per copies.
why 2GB? cos i only had 2GB of free space.
also as of now all other i mean ALL OTHER music player were removed from my computer, i only use iTunes and foobar2000 as music player.
iTunes is set to handle m4a and mp3, as for all the lossless format i trusted foobar to play them.
why i choose the two of them?? iTunes has the ability to organize media files in outstanding way. no need to rename the files folders anymore cos iTunes will do that for you and don't forget the unicode support.
as for foobar2000, it has the ability to fix corrupted old vbr header on mp3s. old vbr header is those mp3 with vbr mode encodings prior from the standard v0, v1 and v2 so if you have any mp3 that have an insane song length where infact it wasn't that long, you should try fixing the vbr header using foobar2000. also it has an audio scrobbler for last.fm.
so i recommend iTunes and foobar2000 for those of you who like to listening to music and organize them.

back to consolidating......
