Hi again Product Hunt! 🎉 Harmony is a simple music player allowing you to play music from your different services (SoundCloud, Spotify, Google Play Music, Deezer, The Hype Machine, YouTube, Reddit & your local files) in the same app. I built it being tired of having my music in different places and because of the lack of minimal desktop players for these services. Harmony has come a long way since it first appeared on Product Hunt last year. Here are the most important changes: - Harmony isn't open-source anymore: it's now on a license model similar to Sublime Text - New plugins: YouTube, Reddit, Deezer & Hype Machine 🎶 - New built-in themes: Dark, Arc & Vibrancy (on Mac OS) - You can add/remove tracks from playlists (playlist creation coming soon) - Third-parties themes & plugins are now possible 🚀 - Replaced Coverflow by a simpler coverview - Ability to pin app to the menubar, or show controls only - Global search: you can now search the cloud ☁️ - Far better usability (on Mac OS especially) - Faster & improved responsiveness - A lot of bugs fixed For future versions, my focus will be on improving the UX and the plugin system. Also, would you like to be able to see/modify the playing queue ? That’s something a lot of players do but I’m not sure if it would be really necessary and would bloat the UI. If you enjoy Harmony & would like to buy a license to support the development (and remove the pop-up), I'll be offering until 20/08 a discounted price of $29 instead of $39 for a lifetime license with this link: https://getharmony.xyz/buy?coupo... As a side note, I'm well aware of the current break of YouTube's ToS by not showing the video when playing its audio, and to not end up like Streamus ☠, fixing this is on my todo list! Looking forward to your feedback! 😃 Vincent.

@vincelwt this is super slick

@gopietz Happy that you like it!

@vincelwt can you remove hype machine from the list of supported services? thanks

@vincelwt to clarify, while i appreciate that you were thinking of us while making this app, there isn't much value for us to have this running, nor for the user who listens to the tracks with the context entirely removed. the stuff we do is more than just a playlist. A good way to listen via an OS X app is with Plug: https://www.producthunt.com/post...
Vincent LMaker@vincelwt · serial maker, nucleus.sh
@fascinated Interesting request, could you elaborate more on the stuff that would be needed to make this working ?

I see Petit Biscuit in the gallery. Nice choice, @vincelwt. He recently came to SF but I couldn't make it. 😞
Vincent LMaker@vincelwt · serial maker, nucleus.sh
@rrhoover Thanks! He is indeed very good on live 😉 you should try again next time he comes
Cool idea. Sonos integration / spotify connect is probably are tough feature request? :)
Vincent LMaker@vincelwt · serial maker, nucleus.sh
@jvdmeij Thanks! At the moment I would say almost impossible for Spotify Connect, but maybe a Sonos integration could be made via a plugin, maybe using this API ? https://github.com/jishi/node-so... That would be complicated for me as I don't have any Sonos system 😕
@vincelwt That would be awesome, and yes, I understand the issues with not having a sonos :o

Been looking for something better for SoundCloud/Youtube so I can use media controls. Looks like I found it. Thanks!
Vincent LMaker@vincelwt · serial maker, nucleus.sh
@brockazure Nice thanks :)

Why have I only just discovered this?! Just installed it for Windows. Lightweight, setup was a breeze and works really well. Great job, love it! This on iPhone would kill it, especially for listening to my several YouTube playlists.

@leandrobthomas Haha thanks :P
