I wrote a new article to Nokia Developer Wiki. This code example demonstrate how to take an image, record audio or video and save these captured media files to the Isolated Storage with the location information. These Interesting Places with media files can be later viewed and shared to the server side. This code example uses PHP server as a back end of this application. All captured media files are send 500 kB chucks with RestSharp and parsed together in the server side with PHP. This application is tested with 5 min recorded video (for example), then video file size was 55 MB and sent chucks count was more than 110. Sent was tested over normal cellular network and sending takes about 8 minutes. It worked really nice in Windows Phone 7 without Background Agents.
There are many Image Galleries available on web, but time to time I want to make one of me own. This time I used Flex, PHP and MySQL. I found one excellent Flex Component from Doug McCune - CoverFlow Component and created my Image Gallery Menu with it.
Selected gallery is displayed with own state in Flex, thumbnails and image information are displayed in bottom of the screen.
New galleries can be uploaded to server with Admin tool. Admin tool sends gallery information to PHP which adds gallery information to MySQL table. After gallery is initialized, all selected pictures will be send to server and thumbnails will be generated with PHP.
Here are sources and installation instructions:
1. MySQL tables
- create following tables
- if you change table names, edit PHP-files also
