I find explicable joy in the social experience of listening to music together. One weekend I threw together a PoC with Mediasoup + socket.io and I was amazed how easy it was to get started.

In my very amateur testing, I was able to observe < 100ms of de-sync between 7 different devices, each on a different network. I'm still not too happy about the exact implementation so I'm hoping having some experienced eyes on the project could guide me in the right direction.

I've checked out your profile and uplause, it looks like you're also making an onlyfans for india? Not sure what the value add is.

We get that comparison a lot, which is fair considering OnlyFans is what comes to mind when you think “exclusive content” for a lot of folks.

We’ve been in conversation with > 150 local creators and the requirement isn’t just another paywalled Instagram. What about the ability to book a 1-on-1 consultation with a French tutor, along with integrated video calls on the same platform? What about the ability to sell courses? As it stands today, each requirement calls for adding another platform/tool to your dashboard, which in turn piles on its own fixed costs. In time, we plan to cater to a few select feature sets and do it well, all with simple, transparent pricing.

If OnlyFans/Patreon exist, what’s our value add? From what I can tell, neither of those platforms allow payments apart from Credit Cards (for context, fewer than 3% Indians have a Credit Card), neither caters to the language barrier and neither has regional pricing ($5/mo is a lot here!). Above all, their revenue cut is higher than it needs to be (18% for Patreon, 20% for OnlyFans).

We’ve been hard at work on developing these, so the marketing website has been a bit neglected. We should have an improved version up soon, that explains what we focus on a lot better.
