Online radio web app for listening to Youtube and Soundcloud audio with others


The goal of this project was to create an online radio for people to listen to Youtube and Soundcloud music together. The inspiration for thiscame from lifting with friends at the gym and wanting some type of free cross-platform service for listening to music/mixes together at a synchronizedrate. I decided that the easiest way to create this radio was to make the front-end a responsive web app. I made the back-end with express.
