OiNKPlus is a media enhancer and artist discovery add-on for Firefox, that works in collaboration with many music trackers (and other select BT sites). The added OiNKPlus info cleverly coalesces within the supported website for seamless integration on the .torrent download page - and it even works with The Pirate Bay and mininova. Below is a look at the before and after examples on What.cd and mininova.org:

Beta release, lag problems fixed, new sites supported

Interesting times lately: A lot of users reported lags while browsing their torrent sites with OiNKPlus enabled. This finally has been fixed. A lot of users report smooth browsing behavior now, caching had to disabled for this. Thanks everyone, especially lhnz for the feedback.

The new beta release, which will become the final version, if no new bugs are reported, has quite a few fixes and supports a bunch of new sites, see the details:

  • support for SceneTorrents, SoftMp3.org, KrayTracker, arenabg.com, MetalTorrents, TheMusik.org, WeLoveMusique, ViPv2.org
  • a link to PureVolume
  • updated IP addresses of trackers, welcome to Sweden!
  • What.cd support fixed
  • other minor fixes

Installation - it's just a few clicks

it doesn't work for me either.
any suggestions?

Indieana said...

@racketeer66, gemby

My webspace provider has some problems (500 Internal Server Error), this is why the Last.fm and MySpace flash players are not loading. They are embedded in a container flash app that would be loaded from my webspace to increase privacy, but this fails at the moment. I hope the problem will be fixed soon. Stay tuned.

it works fine now, thanks!

@joel

Yeah, you're right I "forgot" it. Actually, it's also a fuzzy science, since I don't have an account on #i.t , unfortunately invites were closed the last time somebody offered one to me. All I have is some sourcecode snippets from the details page of #i.t and so on, so I would have to write the rules offline. It would be far more easier, if I had an account. That's another reason #i.t didn't make it into this release. However, there's a skilled guy over on #i.t, who made an early adoption of OiNKPlus for #i.t, so maybe that's still documented somehwhere on the forums.
Once I have an invite for #i.t writing the rules is a matter of minutes. Honestly, I'm quite saturated with my music desires through the various sites I'm a member of, so I won't even use an account over there (back in the days, I had an #i.t account that I lost due to inactivity). If you, or somebody else want me to port it as soon as possible, you could also temporarily give me your credentials, change your password first, for that site and let me log in. That's all I can offer for now. My email is indieana@mailpuppy.com

is there any chance of a version compatible with safari / GreaseKit? I'd be grateful forever

Well, I don't have access to any Safari installation. I personally run Linux and ran OS X from an VMWare virtual appliance, but that was so bloody slow, that I couldn't even think of using this as a base for a Safari port/adoption. If there is any other way of getting a Safari instance on a Linux box, I would at least try.

Ted said...

What about the windows version? I don't know much about the similarities and differences between the osx and windows versions, but I'll assume they're similar under the hood... could you run that under WINE in linux?

this wiki article ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safari_(web_browser) ) says it's been done, but that the GUI and other graphic elements don't render properly... I'm not sure how much is necessary to port the script... Then there's the issue of running GreaseKit in the windows version of safari, and all of that inside of wine.. I didn't find anything on google, and don't have access to an unlocked windows machine... I'd say it's worth a shot though... This would make my day, and I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one

Indieana said...

@ted
I have access to a Windows machine, where Safari would run on, but as much as I understood Greasekit requires SIMBL, which itself requires a Mac.

I'm aware that O+ is much appreciated for Safari. Nobody of my friends owns a Mac that I could borrow, though.

Ted said...

I realize its slightly outrageous to suggest, but what about the osx86 project? I've read articles recently that say its become a relatively painless process installing leopard on a non apple machine.. Both waffles and what have images available.. Is this something youve ever considered? If youve never used os x or even leopard, I highly recommend you try it out

Indieana said...

Nice hint. I will look into that. Of course, this may take a while. Well, I got a first donation and I'm in a good mood&motivated, but I also have to write some exams at University right now.
If you want to send me an email I could keep you updated more easily. indieana@mailpuppy.com

I think that it is quite useful to get that kind of information when you need it and it is amazing that it is implemented in the browser.
