Neuros and MediaFly are jointly sponsoring a contract to integrate the Mediafly Media Channel service into the Neuros OSD. This bounty pays $2,000 on full completion, as described below. If you are interested in applying, send an email to bounties at neurostechnology.com and describe your level of experience in a few sentences. We hope to assign a bounty winner by early September.
For those of you who don't know Mediafly, their free service will allow OSD users to access tons of audio and video media and podcasts for free via personalized channels. These same channels can also be synced to your mobile player (e.g. iPod, Sansa, Zen, iPhone, and more) in the future - so that you have the same channels at home on your Neuros OSD and on the go.
This is a great bounty for anyone who:
* Wants to see/hear free shows, such as podcasts, on the OSD
* Is interested in honing their Qt GUI and OSD platform development skills
* Has free time and wants to make some spare cash
To complete this contract, you will need to:
1.) Integrate a SOAP library into the OSD.
2.) Implement the Mediafly API via SOAP.
3.) Build the UI in Qt. This should be based on the UI design.
4.) Tie the UI to the media player and SOAP libraries.
This contract pays USD$1,000 upon successful completion of the blue section of the UI design, and another USD$1,000 upon successful completion of the green and gray sections of the UI design. Your code must be released under a compatible open-source license (e.g. GPLv2).
We'd love to hear from you!
Note: if you don't have an OSD but feel your are qualified, feel free to apply! We'll give the hardware to the right candidate.
