Okey-dokey, now comes the fun bit. Copy these files to your server.
You may want to also create an index file... excuse me.. You had f'ing
better create an index file that contains hrefs to these gcd
files. Send the URL to your phone however you deem appropriate.
On your phone, click on one of the links for the sound file. It'll
take a few seconds for the phone to actually fetch it (144K my ass)
and you'll probably see a warning about how this file is not safe to
download. Do it anyway. It's a sound file.
You'll then get one of the following:
- 406 Invalid Content: this means your browser didn't send
the hint file as a text/x-pcs-gcd
or the sound file as AddType
audio/vnd.qcelp. Check your .htaccess file, apache configuration,
etc. or frankly, you're SOL.
- File Size Mismatch: You goofed on the file size, go recheck
- Server Error: You either goofed the URL for the actual content
or the hint file. Go check'em
- Content Saved: Yay! Miracles really do happen! Since you
probably don't want to shop or use it right away (since either option
will take you off line or off the page with the other downloads, hit
the Back button and get the next one.
To play the file, go to the downloads section, ringtones and prepare
to annoy everyone around you. Just remember, regardless of how cute,
Cellphone rings are digital farts. They stop conversation all around
you, you're generally greeted with looks of distain, and people whisper
about how rude you are. At least now you can actually play them.
If you're interested in downloading MIDI files, or animated PNG or
JPGs, the process is pretty much the same. Just be sure to use the right
content type for the gcd file.
Oh, and since you made it down this far, here's a collection of evil
cell phone ringtones you can use.
