For some reason I have -1 listeners hahahaha. Also it's constantly sending me notifications that I have 0 listeners (I'm not streaming). Is this a known issue?
this is very cool and works flawlessly. However, I am a bit concerned that I would be breaking the law by streaming my spotify..
@bopfger thanks for your feedback, it's much appreciated! You do not stream your Spotify directly by using Twinjack. We listen to what you play and stream the same to your listeners, through Youtube.
@jacob_funch @bopfger - Love the idea but I think that's still frowned up legally by the rights holders. Maybe under Section 8 of the Spotify Terms & Conditions? " Copying, reproducing, “ripping”, recording, or making available to the public any part of the Spotify Services or content delivered to you via the Spotify Services, or otherwise any making use of the Spotify Service which is not expressly permitted under these Terms;"
@timjahn @bopfger I'm not sure it violates anything because the title / artist of the music you're playing is public anyway via Spotify's profile stream. So if they're replaying the music on youtube (which, in an ideal world is an additional source of revenue and outlet for publicity for the creator), the artist doesn't lose out. Of course, youtube isn't perfect, but the burden falls on youtube to enforce copyright rules
@jacob_funch if I could, I would give you a second upvote. Great solution using Youtube!.. love it. @bopfger
@cwrichardkim @bopfger - They're broadcasting the music that you're streaming from your Spotify account onto YouTube. I'm not a lawyer or anything, but I imagine that's similar to public performance?
Thanks for the great feedback guys, please keep it coming! We definitely felt the Product Hunt effect on our servers today, but we should be ready for massive traffic now. We have an early beta of a mobile app, and will be looking for beta testers soon. Until then you can actually run the web version and lock your phone and it will even tell you who's playing on the iOS lock screen (although it seems you have to manually close Safari when you're done)
You're in an office and someone plays music. Everyone can hear it. Why isn’t it that simple online? For us personally, we rarely have a chance to listen to music together. Morten is in California, an 11 hours flight away from me and the rest of his friends in Denmark. And that's why we built Twinjack.
