Option to purchase songs from VDS?
« on: March 08, 2016, 11:35:55 AM »
I have noticed in some of the competitors that there is an option to purchase songs from sights like select-a-track and an option to have your karaoke cloud account accessed from the software. Can this be added to the search section where you can search not only on your hard drive but the cloud and possibly purchase songs from sights like select-a-track and buykaraokedownloads.com?

I did request that from Justin a couple of years ago.  The problem is that some of these companies are being squeezed by the lawyers and have to stop selling in the US.  The latest, this past weekend was Tricesoft's store (http://www.karaokedownloads.ca).  I know this store was integrated into some karaoke software which is now not available.   I still had credits there (which, according to the site I can be refunded).  Select-a-track won't let you purchase songs if you're in the US.  I think buykaraokedownloads.com still let's you purchase songs , but my understanding is that they don't have an API which VDJ would need to hook into (all the above stores above had APIs).  If you're outside the US, you're probably ok but I'm not sure if Justin is going to spend the time programming, if he can't even test it.  Also, when I looked into Karaoke Cloud, when it was being offered and I read the documentation of the API, my understanding is that their API would scan your local files to find existing karaoke files...maybe it's not being done maliciously but after having some publishers going around and suing people, I'd be very weary of anything that scans my local files. I did have to settle out of court with one of them, even though I wasn't doing anything illegal (my lawyer said it would more expensive to go to court than to settle -basically a nuisance lawsuit).  So I've now backtracked into getting a store integrated.  Obviously it's up to Justin, but personally I would not want it.

Select-a-tack still allows downloads in US. It is incorporated into software some KJs I know are using.

The site is actually up, but it's restricted to us in US and Canada.  As most of these other karaoke sites...

Here's another one.  They used to be The Karaoke Channel but now they go by Stingray.
