Venture to the realm of Westfall

Its been a while since i have posted anything, so i thought i would. To everyone downloading phpVideo, I hope you are enjoying it. I am sorry however, that I have not released a new version in a while. Noisewater has me busy working on a new MVC Framework for php called “Westfall”, for use with our socialware applications. It has been interesting in planning this machine out.

This starting in the wake of the launch of Vooaroo (which, if you would like an invite, just shoot me an email: wcope(at)noisewater(dot)net and I will slide one to you) so planning a very complex MVC while debugging and working on Vooaroo has not left much time for phpVideo, but alas dont give up on me yet, Im still working with some friends to develop a C program + php extension for video conversion instead of relying on FFMpeg. I will leave the link to phpVideo download on the left column.

Oh, and for anyone that acually downloaded and/or used Ink templating, Im sorry but development (or lack there of) on that project will be discontinued 😦 Westfall will be using a completely rebuilt templating system, so I will no longer have time nor interest in developing Ink any further.

Thanks to all the readers of my blog, I will try to start posting my tutorials and articles more often. You can see all my C# tutorials at

Take Care,

phpVideo Release 0.1 beta

Today I have finished phpVideo version 0.1 beta. there is an example of how to use it in the zip file. Also this project uses the BSD license.

You can download it here: phpVideo version 0.1 beta

Required for this to use is:
Flash Video Player

notice: This is a beta release, so there will most likely be bugs. If so please just email me. Also the restriction of what video formats you can convert are based on the restrictions/version of ffmpeg you have.

I am interested in making this a project that will continued to be developed If you are interested please send me an email.Thank you, and I hope you enjoy!

Life takes a turn

Well its been a while since i have wrote anything. Im going to try to keep up and write more. I am currently working on a couple of projects. Over the holidaze, i took a break from programming.

1st UltrasoundOk, down to my “Life takes a turn.” I should posted this a while back, but time is limited. I have found out that I am going to be a father, yes my first kid is on the way and me and my wife are more then excited about it. I have lost my office to make room for a bedroom for the little person. We dont know the sex yet, we will find out January 15th.

On another note, I am close to releasing my phpVideo script, it lets you make youtube-style sites. Hopefully it will be done soon, and when it is I will add an entry to announce its release and also a brief intro on how to use it.

Building a Social Network

A few months ago a friend and I begin down a path that so many have traveled down before, developing a social network. We could of never of expected the task that we put in-front of us. We begin as sort of a joke, the sites name was a made up word “Vooaroo” pronounced: VOO – A – ROO, sounds kinda like a futuristic, robot kangaroo. Then we begin to build an interface, making it as simple as possible with as much “Web 2.0” stuff as we could find. Adding all the basic features and even a couple that had not been done before.

A few month of tears, and we had a basic concept running and kind of working. We asked our wives, friends, and co-workers to take a look, and this is were things started getting more serious. Everyone loved it, they loved our design, concepts and easy-of-use factor. had taken shape and was now a 2nd full time job for development.

As we started developing more and more attention came, but not a lot – just enough :), and then we were approached by a company that had caught wind and wanted to see about joining us in a sort-of partnership to help us get this boat floating.

Noisewater was formed, a company devoted to Internet social software development, and we entered in talks with the unmentioned company and discussed details that we cannot mention, fun huh?

So now we are in the final stretch of developing this network, which we have made a strict 6 invites per member only rule, and are excited to see what the future holds.

Of course we have more ideas for more social projects, I mean we have to, its all the rage!

This is very exciting to me because I have never been apart of something that has the chance to be as big as this project, it will be interesting how the story unfolds and what direction we go from here.

Code Coping

This section will be dedicated to my programming ventures, tutorials, and whatever else code related. There are a lot of languages out there, and even more frameworks. I am going to try to stick to what i know best. A few languages I would like to write about are C#, PHP, Javascript and Ruby, just to name a few. I will, most likely, focus on web application development but I would also like to venture into the realm of desktop application development too. Since graphics are a very important part of either of the previously stated platforms, web and desktop, I will also discuss graphics design and layout, as I see it :). Thanks for reading.
