“Complementing SGplayer’s existing embeddable configuration, version 3.2 offers a new full-page layout mode that provides additional ways for radio broadcasters and content producers to connect with their audiences and monetize their live streams and podcasts,” the company stated.
SGplayer is based on HTML-5 and is hosted by StreamGuys. The company says content providers can incorporate it into their websites to present live streams and on-demand content.
“SGplayer 3.2’s newly-redesigned, responsive user interface delivers attractive, customizable listening experiences on desktop and mobile devices while making it even easier for consumers to find and access relevant content. Tight integration with StreamGuys’ SGrewind time-shifting technology allows listeners to pause, resume, and rewind live streams or jump back to the beginning of a recently-streamed show through a scrollable and searchable program guide.”
Features include new engagement buttons and podcast subscription signups through RSS feeds or third-party platforms such as Spotify and Apple Podcasts. A Share button lets listeners share player links for favoritecontent.
The company says the search functionality has been enhanced and that new monetization features enhance its support for dynamic advertising insertion.
