I have a suggestion for a new plugin option for BuddyPress – MediaPress Profile Playlist
The idea is that on the profile page of each site member there is a widget that is hidden when they fist join. But as they add audio and or video files to their gallery, then this widget becomes visible and by clicking on it they can configure a playlist that plays whenever their profile is viewed.
There should probably also be a menu item called playlist to alert them to the feature, clicking on it would take them to a playlist editor, allowing them to upload audio (and video) into their profile galleries and adding them to their playlist.
A similar item could be made to play playlists on specific web pages, such as the sites homepage, either via widget or shortcode.
Thinking about it, there could be three different playlist widgets, one for audio, one for a slideshow and another for video. I think such a feature would be a big boost to social sites looking to offer profile customisation options to users.
The key features of this plugin are as follows:
It is designed to appear in the users profile page.
It allows users to add their own media to it, to allow them to customise their own profile.
I don’t think mpp featured media does that, I don’t think any plugins do that, the closest I’ve seen was Buddypress Profile Widgets (if I remember the name correctly), which I don’t think is supported anymore.
