Idea: Resonate Downloader

Supporting Resonate.is is something which could be interesting that I would love to code up myself, if the API opens up.


It's a streaming co-operative (co-ops are cool) built around the Mycelia blockchain that aims to compensate artists more fairly. Sort of Tidal, but for smaller artists. Listeners can become co-operative members meaning they get a collective say in the appointment of leaders.

Their biggest difference is "stream to own".

https://resonate.is/manifesto/

It works differently to most streaming services, you stream a song and after 9 listens you own the track and can download a zip of the tracks you own. It's that part that could integrate with Moode, selecting to import your paid for library. Having a UI to select which albums you wish to download to the SDCARD folder, that sort of thing (and having limits so as not to impact service). You could build up the 9 plays in their UI. If it can gain traction this would be getting in on the lower floors of that journey.

Of course, this is a tough change to make in the industry and could be rebooted several times.

How does the moOde project get compensated?

@Tim Curtis I'm not sure if your reply was tongue in cheek or not? Would the project need to be compensated? Is the project compensated when playing other commercial streaming services? I'd never heard of Resonate before but IMO it seems like a good idea, shame I can't find much music I listen to.

Commercial Music Service API's are not free. They charge annual license fees and require NDA's which are generally not compatible with Open Source licenses. If the companies that owned these API's allowed the moOde project to implement them and embed the Music Services into moOde player who will pay the annual license fees?

Btw, the "casting" protocols for example Airplay, Spotify Connect, SlimProto, Bluetooth etc., or the UPnP client for MPD (upmpdci) used in moOde are in a legal gray area wrt licensing and permission to use in Open Source players. Ultimately, the companies that own the protocols control their destiny. They could shut them down at any time and even litigate the projects that redistribute them :-0
