TuneGenie Patent Converts Websites into Media Players
|RADIO ONLINE | Wednesday, September 12, 2018|
TuneGenie, a provider of music content and media players for media sites, has received a U.S. patent for its technology which converts websites, (mobile and desktop) into media players, eliminating the need for third party pop-out media players. When installed into any website, audio and/or video content plays directly from the site versus transferring them off site to a third party pop-out player. Audiences remain on-site, giving broadcasters full control of how their online content is consumed and ultimately measured.
TuneGenie's technology can be added to any website, as it takes about a minute and requires no advanced technology skills. It brings functionality traditionally found in iOS and Android apps to desktop and mobile browsers. It also enables continuous playback of audio and/or video while changing site pages, and also eliminates the problem of overlapping media play.
TuneGenie Founder/CEO Jeffrey Specter commented, "Media sites have become audio and video menus, giving the audience the power to choose content. But forcing the audience to navigate multiple media players across desktop and mobile is a bad experience; a silent content barrier. It causes audiences to get frustrated and walk away from the content. TuneGenie removes the barriers, no more confusing and overlapping players. Podcasts, videos and streams can now all be easily played. This patent makes it easier for us to distribute the platform to all."
