Some quick news and site updates to come. ~frankie
2014 is coming to a close. Here in the States, we kick off the holiday season with our Thanksgiving. Then the real holiday insanity begins!
Here at StreetJelly, we are most thankful for another wonderful year of growth. We are immensely grateful to all the musicians and viewers on the site that make it great. Thank you, Jellyfish!!!
This past month, we released a new design of StreetJelly. It’s more correct to say this was a “partial” release. We are not done making changes! The changes you see were mainly to the homepage, logo, branding, etc. Some of the old sections on the homepage: upcoming schedule, new members, friends of SJ, etc. appear to be missing. Don’t worry, they are coming back. We are currently working on getting these features back on the site with the new look. We will slowly trickle in these updates from time to time.
Next, we are also working on upgrading the broadcasting software to full mp4 (H.264 + AAC stereo) compatibility. This will allow the streaming to be playable on any device, specifically iPhones / iPads, without having to run a special Flash-converter browser like Photon or Puffin’. Broadcasting at full mp4 is also the precursor for deploying a true mobile app version of StreetJelly. Expect to see the mobile app by first or second quarter of 2015.
The rest of our (very long) To-Do list includes services to better promote our artists and viewing experience. On the short list will be affiliate programs and discounts for 3rd party musician services, a SJ store for musician merch, customizable broadcasting pages to set your econcert mood and vibe, and plenty more nifty ideas we have up our sleeves.
Thank you, again, StreetJelly community. Great things are still to come!
