MessageSujet: Help me understand some basic concepts   Sam 12 Aoû 2006 - 3:33

Hey there fellow bunny owners,

I just received my violet nabaztag thingy and I seem to have finally figured out how to register on this all-French version of PHPBB. So far, so good.

I've been reading over the API docs and had some success with having my Internet radio station (Boot Liquor Radio) announce each track as it is played. But, I'm having a problem with a couple of concepts regarding this innovative beast. These concepts include...

-- Does the text to speech capability occur on Nabaztag's server, then is shipped as an MP3 to the device for playback?

-- Is there a way to send longer chunks of text than what you could pass in a URL (which is, of course, an HTTP GET). Is there a way to POST longer bits of text to the API in order to send full RSS feeds (without using the service).

-- What is the Nabcast parameter used for in the API?

-- Is there a way to send a text to speech (tts), via the API, that gets played once and "vanishes" without the person needing to push the button on the device?

-- Any way to get more volume out of this thing? Yes, I've moved the switch to the loudest position. Some voices are unusable due to their very low volume. Anyone try to interface the speaker output with the line-in on their computer?

Thanks,
Roy

Hey, welcome here.
This forum is very 'frenchy', it's not easy to have a fully english version of it. We will be happy to introduce u an english nabaztag forum, who want to create it ?

that's it (it's not MP3 format).


Citation :

Not for now, it's limited by HTTP GET. maybe later with POST support.

Citation :

If u created a Nabcast, u can feed it with the API.

-- Is there a way to send a text to speech (tts), via the API, that gets played once and "vanishes" without the person needing to push the button on the device?
'Play and vanish' no but u can use a very short TTL.

Some did it : http://nabaztag.forumactif.fr/ftopic439.Tuning-NabazTag-II.htm

I hope it will help you.
(sorry for my so bad english)

Thanks for the quick response to my various questions.

I actually have lots of experience installing and running bulletin board systems (which is why I was able to guess my way through the PHPBB menus here). I would be more than happy to get an English one started. Would this be something on the Nabaztag site, or are you suggesting I start my own somewhere else?

Also, with the 45 second audio limit, how are longer RSS feeds processed? Are they kept under the 45 second limit, or broken up into chunks?

Hey...

We do our best to give a response as quick as possible yellownabzsmile .

This forum is unofficial, and totaly independant from Violet.
We have nevertheless privileged relations with Violet. Nabztag Team read the forum and takes part in discussions.
I think you should start your own forum with your own server.
Of course, We'd be happy to promote it here and to work together.

The 45s limit is for all audio files included RSS conerverted in audio, the text may be troncated.

Okay, I'm willing to take a stab at hosting an English focused website for Nabaztag discussions. I'm still working on installing my preferred BBS software, but should be close to complete by the time you read this.

Hello, that's a great idea bootliquor. I just got back from a week's pause from Violet, and will announce your website on the Nabazta(blo)g.

Great, thanks Marvel. I would appreciaet the promotion since it will otherwise be pretty quiet with just me there.

I have some ideas for a FAQ and other details on my own work with Nabaztag to try to get it off the ground. I might also write yet another set of PHP tools for general manipulation of Nabaztag.

You're welcome. Your ideas sound interesting, I'll follow up ! I should post today, or at the latest tomorrow about your website. I hope many come and connect, it should happen anyhow, pretty soon, when Nabaztag is launched in the
US in stores.

Great.

I think the Nabaztag is a cool device, with limitless possibilities for interesting and creative implementations. The thin instruction manual that comes with it only hints at its capabilities.

I plan to work on the server implementation too, once time permits.
