Short, concise description of the idea
Have an option either for paid members or all to add streaming audio to their journal via use of a radioblog.
Full description of the idea
Using it's own developed code, or third party code/applications, LiveJournal could include the ability to have per-user media players for each journal (whether it be a paid-account, free, or otherwise specified). The options I have researched and found were to use a converter to convert a specified number of .mp3 format audio to .swf and play that way. URL for reference: http://www.radioblogclub.com/
- - entertainment for reading one's winded posts
- - a selectable tracklist of music that isn't corny MIDI format
- - personalized music, not just 'here's what we allow you'
- - listen to a track that perhaps the poster is/was listening to during the post
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- - server-side space and possibly resource intensive
- - with the size that LiveJournal is, bandwidth and backup of said resource could prove to be difficult and/or expensive.
- - bugs in the system and code itself could offset the journal system itself.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- - seperate media servers/services for said application(s)
- - inclusion into LiveJournal's beta picture service
- - community 'radio stations' that appeal to the different genres/markets/scenes
