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!
“You could be sitting taking lunch
The news will hit you like a punch
It’s only Tuesday”
We’re back with another mini addition to the Cloud–Digg support! You can now “digg” tunes in the share-box:
and, voila, it’s dugg!
We just launched a tiny but very useful feature on SoundCloud for the weekend. If you click the Share-button for any track you can now post it complete with the SoundCloud widget to MySpace in about two clicks. Simply click the “Share on MySpace”-link and select where you’d like to post it on MySpace (Your blog, About Me, etc) and click post. Kazam, the track is now on MySpace!
