How would you go about creating a streaming service similar to beatstars.com or airbit.com ? I’m VERY ignorant to web dev and have just bought a course on Udemy to learn some very basic PHP, as my current setup is with WordPress. However, I’m not sure if there are better options than what I am using. I’m already in the hole with this setup and REALLY need some advice as far as which platform I should use. I am currently on WordPress with loads of plugins and tons of edits done by various web devs, but I’m in need of CONSTANT support, and would really be interested in migrating platforms if there are better solutions out there. My WordPress backend and frontend are both extremely slow, so I’d like to know if there are other solutions available. I’ve done tons of research on this topic, but WordPress was the best solution I could come up with. What are your guys’ thoughts?
Key features of the site:
– Membership Site With Account Page
– Music Streaming & Downloading (with download variations)
– Realtime Audio Analyzer & Player
– Advanced Search (Genre, Artist, Song, etc.)
– Stripe & PayPal Checkout
– Favorites/Add To Favorites
I’ve shown everything below on my current live website, but I am wondering how you’d go about doing this yourself. I’m tired of spending money on web developers as I’d really just want to be all of my financial efforts towards advertising and marketing. Any advice would really be appreciated.
