Project Poptart - No more downloading. Listen to your music instantly
What is Project Poptart?
A few months ago I released Netflix Roulette and it was met with overwhelming positive results, I wanted to do something with music after its release; even going as far as to buy Tuneroulettes domain. But that one off project has become this.
Project Poptart is a multi-platform application I’ve been building over the last month on and off. The original purpose of the application was to give users quick access to current music that was popular, and to prevent the need of tedious soul searching to find something decent too listen to. Poptart remains true to its intention through its design
The end goal of Project Poptart is to deliver the ability to import your playlist from various sources such as Vimeo, Soundcloud, Groove shark and more, and too prevent the need of going to multiple sites to watch what you love.Beta 1.0
For the initial beta release the application will only support YouTube, local playlist, and other sites will be supported by at least version 1.3. The main purpose of starting with YouTube is that it’s core player,the interface of Poptart and given media providers is ever-changing, and requires repeated tested. The core spot light features for 1.0 are as follows
- Import YouTube playlist
- Build playlist based on single links
- Stream back videos in 1080p
- Import entire channels playlist
You’ll be able to stream back any videos you throw at it seamlessly in full HD, this on top of the ability to build custom playlist of all your favorite Tubers, Artist and Creators makes Project Poptart a worthwhile application to have installed.Planned Platforms
Project Poptart for this first release is making its way to Windows, Mac and Linux. Once the desktop version has reached completion in terms of features/functions, mobile versions will come officially to Android, IOS and Blackberry.What You Can Do
If you’re going to partake in this beta, and want to see this software grow, please do submit bug reports and suggestions here to keep track of everything.
Please note, I’m the only person working on this as of now. I’m no UX/UI designer, and I am terrible at anything art related. So if you wish to contribute art or UI advice, feel free!Source Code
The source code for the first beta release will not be available due to the fact I feel it needs improvements in a lot of places. Truthfully, I never intended to release this application to the public so I slacked a bit in code structure. Once it has been optimized, (hopefully by the next revision) it should be up on this same hub.Contributing

I’d like to thank https://popcorntime.io/ for making their site open source, without i’d probably never even put this out to the public. This is my first project I haven’t brought http://dmxt.org/portfolio/ on for so I was in dire need of a pretty site to make up for my otherwise ugly software.
