David The Cloud Player

It started as a one-day-hack for Eric needing a playlist feature for a party. Then a couple of weeks back we decided to turn it into something a bit more real. And after a few weekends and some late nights in deep code mode we yesterday reached something we dare to call 1.0. We present to you, The Cloud Player:

The Cloud Player is a web-based music player that let’s you…

  • Find and play all tracks from SoundCloud
  • Save playlists to your Google Account
  • Make smart playlists based on genre, BPM, etc
  • Share your ready-made playlists with your friends
  • Collaborate in making the best playlists ever

It is built by me, Henrik, and Eric using Google App Engine, Python, jQuery, SoundManager 2, Crystal and of course the SoundCloud API. Do you want to contribute? Go ahead and fork from GitHub!

    looking forward to playing with it.

    Searching (for my tracks, at least) does not return all tracks. In my case, it returns 2 out of 9. Bug?

    Otherwise, kudos for keeping it simple and getting stuff out there quick. I like it!

    This project is off to a great start – very impressive.

    Here’s my wish list:

    I’d love to be able to provide a link on Synthtopia that would open up Cloud Player, with Playlists that I’ve selected of music by Synthtopia readers. Is there anyway playlists could be passed as URL parameters, or something like that?

    Also, it looks like search may not finding everything.

    Finally – it would be great to let listeners to rate the tracks within the player.

    Thanks for creating this – I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops.

    synthhead: Thanks!

    For now you can only pass one playlist at a time as a parameter. So you have to put in multiple links on your end.

    To speed things up we have scoped the search a bit. If you want to find all tracks by an artists we recommend a smart playlist.

    Rating isn’t something we have planned for now. We will rather follow the hotness of tracks over at SoundCloud.

    hi,
    the player lists audio files that are supposed to be for private use only. I did a search with my own log name and it listed my private files. so, in just a few seconds i was listening to a song that i wasn`t supposed to listen to… anyone could be doing it. i guess it wasn`t supposed to do that. so I though
    I should point that just in case…of course it`s version 1 and you will fix that in the near future, otherwise I think the whole thing of (pro) collaboration and sharing is pointless. anyway , other that that the player is really nice and usefull to find and gather the public files.good work.

    hey titcho,

    there is an explanation for you seeing your own private tracks on the cloud player. And this is simply because you were logged in to SoundCloud on that browser and that you have access to those private tracks. I’ve verified this by logging out of SC and trying to find private tracks, maybe you want to do the same?

    Hope this sheds some light over the problem.

    Cheers
    Henrik
