How can I know how many times a song has been played from my widget?
To get insights about your player widget, it has to be related to an Application ID so that we’re able to know where the data is coming from.
You can create your Application ID by following these steps:
- Go to http://developers.deezer.com
- Login with your Deezer credentials
- Go to “My Apps”
- Click on “Create my application”
- Fill in the form with basic information about your widget
What’s the difference between a playlist and a radio ?
Playlists and radios are both sets of tracks you can listen to thanks to the Deezer player. Radios have to comply with DMCA rules:
- 5 track skips per hour (skips = pressing the next button to change the current track),
- no interaction = no change in the track order,
- limited number of tracks from a same artist, etc.
On the contrary, you can listen to the tracks you want with a playlist, in the order you like.
However, since rights management rules do not apply the same way on playlists and radios, users have to be logged in as Deezer Premium+ users to be able to listen to full-tracks in a playlist. If not, they’ll be limited to 30 seconds previews.
Is there a way to provide full-track access to my playlist without prompting users to log in?
No. The only way to have full-track access for anyone is to use a radio.
How can I create a radio channel or a playlist?
To create your own radio, please contact the ad sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org. They’ll evaluate the cost and you’ll be able send them the set of tracks you want or a playlist ID they’ll convert to a radio.
To create a playlist, you can:
- use the Deezer API. With the API, you can programmatically create, update (or rename), reorder, add/remove tracks to a playlist (http://developers.deezer.com/api/actions-post)
- do it manually on www.deezer.com.
