There were certain criteria we felt were lacking in the way people search and consume their multimedia contents, thus giving us the impetus in building the current Solayo.
The idea, that ability for users to search contents from as many source providers as possible isn’t yet prevalent was intriguing to us. Why can’t a user search for i.e. ‘Michael jackson or Oasis’ and get results from providers such as: Youtube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp etc., at the same time?
Not only will this allow users to have expanded results from different sources, but they will also be getting varieties of results that weren’t available to them before, i.e. a Beyonce song available on SoundCloud wouldn’t necessarily be available on Youtube or other sites. This is because sounds/songs on Soundcloud are mainly uploaded by the content creator thus not making them widely available on other sites.
The fragmentation of multimedia contents across the web wasn’t the only problem we wanted to fix but also the way people watch/listen to them. By providing an ‘all purpose’ media player, users will not only be able to search contents from varieties of sites but also consume them uninterruptedly and seamlessly.
The media player will allow users to play both video and audio content with the combination of creating and saving as many playlists as possible. This will allow users to access and enjoy their saved media whenever the like.
On Solayo users will be able to ‘search and consume on the go’; what this entails is a platform where users can search for a content, play the content and whilst it’s playing, the capability for searching for more content to consume without any interruption to one currently playing is available.
We would continue to improve on Solayo and user feedbacks are greatly appreciated. We hope you like what we’re providing so far. In case of queries, please feel free to get in touch via our feedback or contact us section.
