Otter is a native Android music player for Funkwhale, native to both Android (developed in Kotlin) and to Funkwhale (uses its native API instead of Subsonic).

You can get help and discuss Otter on Matrix on #otter:matrix.org.

Would be great if they set up a way to pay a monthly price and have the money get distributed to the artists you stream. http://www.mediachain.io/ was going to make it possible for a distributed Spotify where all profits go to the artists but Spotify bought them and looks like they stopped development =\

Because of course they did.

Why do companies have to buy up and ruin everything

How exactly does funkwhale work? Their site didn’t quite clear it up for me. You upload music to your instance and anyone can access it? Is this piracy (fine, but just to clarify)?

I think this was made more complicated than it needs to be. They say your music can be public or private, and they say not to use it for piracy:

If the content is under an open license (like Creative Commons licenses), it’s usually fine to upload it in a public library

If you are uploading content purchased from other platforms or stores, you should upload it in a private library

If you’re playing music in a public venue, you do need to pay a licensing fee for that in most jurisdictions.

Like I said, the site wasn’t entirely clear to me. Let’s say I upload mp3’s I bought (that is, they aren’t public domain or CC) to a pod. Can all federated instances access those files?
