ViralFM is a decentralised web radio that continues to play when you are offline.
The application emulates the workings of a Top100 radio station by downloading Free Music songs from the internet and putting them into heavy rotation from which it plays songs in random order. Like in a radio station the user doesn't have a lot of control over the playback, but can skip a song or drop it from rotation altogether. If a song is dropped the app will automatically try to download new songs, so that you don't run out of music.
I wrote it mostly for myself, since I am really enjoying Free Music, that is music that I am allowed to download and share with my friends, and there is a lot of great music out there. Unfortunately finding the music I really like is a lot of work, which is why I decided to write this little program to streamline the process.
There is an issue tracker on codeberg and you can find me on mastodon: firstname.lastname@example.org
The idea is to automatically share the songs you don't totally dislike on social media, so that other users can pick up popular songs from their friends or internet-friends. Until this minimal viral product is implemented, all you get is a music player that plays music you didn't ask for.
