I'm working on a niche website that allows users to upload recorded audio and interact with it in many of the typical ways (add to playlist, favorite, etc). The SoundCloud API would be a perfect backend for this, but they stopped allowing new apps a while ago. I haven't been able to find any other service that matches what they did. I could just store the files on AWS or GCP and stream from there but that adds a lot of complexity I'd hope I could get from a media management service. Does anyone know of good alternatives? Happy to pay for this service.
I did find these two related questions:
- Audio streaming service to broadcast songs and metadata
- What application allows server hosting of audio files and streaming
The former discusses mixcloud, which explicitly disallows audio streaming (see "audio streams" section), and the latter a server-side program that one can install to manage this. I'm looking for a hosted solution.
