Just to clarify, this is pirating music, right?
increasing exposure is what the cool kids call it.
A writer acquaintance likes to say “Remember, people die of exposure.”
Yeah, the only explanation I can get on the site is “Enjoy music how you want to for free.” The Press Kit has only logos and the same screenshots from the homepage. Maybe the creator and submitter /u/codeusa can clear things up? :)
Judging by a link from that site to this one, it looks like it’s a media player built on top of the same author’s torrent search engine.
There will be official clarification in a few days.
Looks like a nice music player. Is it purely streaming via bittorrent, or can I point it at my local music library too?
It will play your local library.
This looks like a sharp music player, torrents aside. I just wonder if the fact that it uses torrents for streaming will cause people to stay away who might like it just for the local abilities. Either way, I’m at least looking forward to test-driving it.
P2P stuff is just for searching and streaming music (if it was found on BitTorrent), once something has streamed entirely, it plays from disk from that point. You can also disable p2p searching and choose to search over the few million websites we have indexed. So then you stream over HTTP, Both are fast, both have benefits over the other.
Impressive, is it node-webkit or electron?
Tomcat and JavaFX
I’m guessing their Github repository for the website is private (For the moment at least) but they also have an app.
