Question #1: Why don’t you have the ability to select songs from a request list?
Answer: We originally had a request system in place but it was something I made using bits of code from several applications and while the result was a functional request system it was buggy… very buggy. Sometimes it would be fine and then the next week or so it would crash on a constant basis. Many of our original fans remember that =( We may revisit that again depending on how well the re-launch goes.
Question #2: Why dont’t we use HTML5 instead of Flash since we can’t use Flash on our iOS devices.
Answer: While that is something I’ve looked into the main issue is the HTML5 scripts / applications that are current for streaming with Shoutcast simply aren’t up to par with the Flash ones. I’m a pretty huge Android person so I can relate since you can’t use Flash on Google’s Jelly Bean (4.1.x) unless you sideload it using an browser that supports it, which of course not everyone is going to do. However that is why we provide the stream links so you can still stream to iTunes, Winamp, Real Audio or any player that supports *.m3u or *.pls files. As those HTML5 applications develop and mature we’ll look into them again or when I find someone who wants to re-code the entire engine.
Question #3: Are you in direct competition with out Video Game Music stations like Rainwave.cc?
Answer: No, simply No! While we’re not the same people or don’t even reach out to each other our goals are the same and that’s to provide streams of Video Game Music for the masses. Sure I’d like it if we got the majority of the listeners but as long as their’s a choose out there it’s a win/win for everyone.
Question #4: Do you get paid for this?
Answer: Nope, I do this for free, I ask nothing in return. I may start a donation drive to help upgrade / hire a coder for that HTML 5 project but no I ask nothing in return. This 100% free for the fans!
