Experiments and deejay mixes
Posted/Last Updated 17 Apr 2021 10:33

I have been experimenting with some different things on the station. Right now, you'll hear some deejay mixes we put together. By 'some', I mean a lot of them.

Hope you enjoy as we continue making tweaks!

Re-evaluating YouTube
Posted/Last Updated 08 Mar 2021 12:10

Hello! I'm working on some behind-the-scenes stuff for RXDIO that I hope I can tell you about sometime in the coming months. These are long-term projects that I feel would be too speculative if I were to post about them right now.

In other news...

I've been less than pleased with the YouTube stream. It goes down a lot and it goes almost always unused. Far more people are watching the video stream from the private server, which is much healthier anyway. With that said, I've removed YouTube from the "Also Available On..." list on the main page, and put it a bit deeper on the "listen" page with a notation.

It's also kinda nice to step a bit further away from the video near-monopoly.

The whole purpose of using YT was as a discovery tool for the RXDIO video stream. That has not happened, even a little bit. Many, many, many more people are finding it organically on Roku.

Playlists now available, and new music notes
Posted/Last Updated 23 Feb 2021 20:30

Hello, and hope your February is going well so far!

Our playlist is now available by using the drop-down breadcrumb menu, using the footer menu, or by going directly to https://rxdio.com/Playlist.

Also, I've been messing around with the music a bit. First off, I added a few exclusive tracks with a trance feel to them. Secondly, I'm experimenting with using some excellent music from outside artists who use the Creative Commons Attribution license. Projects I'm dropping in include glaciære, Stevia Sphere, Delete The Cube, Lee Rosevere, Soft and Furious, Paternoster Poetry, pine voc, and Anonymous 420. Trying to get a feel for how they sound next to the exclusive content over the next few days. If they sound good, I'll keep them in!

Hope you enjoy the enhancements!
