Equestrian Beats

We all love it, otherwise it's unlikely you'd be here. Talk about the show and the fanbase surrounding it. Brony music discussions encouraged.

I would have liked support and help like this when I was working on a similar site weeks before this got posted...

Complete waste of my time and money. Thanks a bunch guys.

sorry man, did you communicate this out to people before you began working on it? Sorry if you duplicated your efforts. :(

I started uploading stuff to Eqbeats for additional storage and because now there is a partnership with Celestia Radio. So if you upload to Eqbeats it should submit directly to Celestia Radio and create an entry for you there.

Hopefully we'll get more detail like what amount of traffic we are getting or amount of downloads (similar to soundcloud). Adding pics to tracks is a nice benfit now for the plain white backgrounds. Free storage and streaming for many pony artists is always better than something like mediafire for hosting. Then again I hope the people running this have expected the costs associated with this new site.

Dude, sorry about stealing the spotlight and all that.
If you mind my criticism though, you should have made sure you had a working website before you bought a domain and server. I'd rather end up with a half finished thing than with a half finished thing and useless, expensive equipment.

To be honest, we didn't really know where we were going with this, we just coded away, until it turned out to be decent, and only then we decided to get a domain and started spreading the word.

Suggestion noted.

Remember, if your favourite/dream feature isn't there yet, it probably means it hasn't been asked for enough yet, so feel free to pester us with it until we add it. We're always looking to add features, but we can't guess what you want unless you tell us.

DJ Pon-3 wrote:I hope the people running this have expected the costs associated with this new site.

We have. They're lower than I expected, actually.


Anyway, what do you ponies think of the new player things on the homepage and track listings? Aren't they swell?

Ok I uploaded 2 tracks today (both Evdog remixes) and both only allow about 1 min of streaming but download fine and in their entirety. Is there a site issue going on?

Tried re-uploading the first 1 and the same thing occurred so not a fluke.

What do you mean, does it stop after a minute, or does it just show song length as only a minute? The latter is a known problem, it should go back to normal as soon as you reload the page or click play.

They look normal to me anyway.

Edit: Fixed. There shouldn't be anymore broken track lengths.

Edit again: Just to make it clear, no need to reupload anything. It was merely a cosmetic issue.

Yay! I feel significant :D

BTW, for the people that don't know, WINTER RAP OFF, the competition that I started, is run on Equestrian Beats, so needless to say, I support the site.

Wowowowow, I like this idea alot! But the website design kinda makes me vomit, but that's because I'm so used to soundcloud. I guess I'll use this alongside my soundcloud! I don't want to give up on my souncloud just yet, so... Yeah c:

But seriously, this was a really great idea.

yeah once the feeback / traffic views / favoriting can HOPEFULLY be included in future updates this will make site much nicer. I hope that is in the works. For now its nice to have free hosting and streaming as an alternative /backup to soundcloud (which truthfully right now is far superior). Hope the gap between closes.

Err.... I must have missed the upgrade memo. Now we can connect Youtube to EQBeats? :o

So, if I allow the connection, it will basically make Youtube videos out of ALL the tracks I have uploaded, automatically (And without my consent)? Even the unpublished ones?

Don't get me wrong, I'm liking this idea! I just want to clarify how much control I have over my connection. :)

Whoops, forgot to post an update here.

So, yeah, youtube integration. Basically that saves you the hassle of uploading the same thing twice. More details here.

EDIT: also, playlists. Those were long due.

Whoa no, of course not, that would be rude. Nothing gets uploaded until you actually ask for it to be.

When you link your account, you'll get a button like this : Image on each of your tracks. This will bring you to a preview page like this one where you can check that everything looks fine. Only when you click the continue button will the video be encoded and uploaded to YouTube.

you can upload whatever you want....

if the admins do come around they are going to have address the fact that artists cannot delete comments on their pages and right now there's a few bots having a fun time on a lot of people's pages. :(

Anything as long as it's music and it's yours.

(We have had several people uploading random tracks from other people, so I'm playing it safe.)

Yep, working on anti-spam measures right now.

Alright, I added a simple protection against dumb bots (which, from the comments' contents, is the case of all the bots we have had), I will be putting up more elaborate barriers later.

Stats have been on our mind for a while now. No promises, but they might pop up sooner or later.

About PMs, what's wrong with email? (Genuine quesion, I would like to know why everyone seems to dislike or ignore email.)

Well it certainly is a way to buypass having to creat a pm system (which could be difficult) that said i get so many messages via email which are all notification vs contact from other people VIA email that most people rarely use it that way tbh. also keep in mind that people can comb eqbeats for visible email address and do the backhanded "add as a contact" maneuver on youtube (by adding them as contacts on their gmail) to get people to check out their stuff (which i find is almost ALWAYS non-pony) or other spam msgs. I'm not sure how others feel about visible email addresses but personally I'm not wild about them...

Lunar this is a general thread about Eqbeats. It's not a place to dump your own music. Please use the music section and your own threads as this is pretty off-topic/spammy.
