We are using multiple instances of SAM Broadcaster PRO since several years for our webradio channels. SAM Broadcaster CLOUD seems to be a serious alternative to our current, expensive and highly maintenance-intensive "hardware" solution. During past days we did a proof of concept and came to the conclusion that the play-out side of SAMBC CLOUD meets our requirements (in particular auto-crossfades). Unfortunately, there is a big gap on web development/integration side.
Current SAMBC Pro setup is deeply integrated into our website. As the interactivity of our radio station is part of our main concept, we are relying on custom integration of SAMBC CLOUD with our website. The easiest way for web developers surely would be an official API (direct DB access would be a temporary workaround) with below options...
- Song library listing & search
- Now playing
- Recently played songs
- Sending song request (e.g. based on SongID like in SAMBC Pro)
Is Spacial willing picking up such an API to the to-do's? We would be very happy if so and we are looking forward to support you as tester.
Thank you in advance for letting us know what you are thinking about it.
Best regards from Germany
