The lighthouse was launched with the idea of offering high-quality, curated podcasts with an 8-month subscription. At the same time, it also has a free level of podcasts that are available around the web, just like Cloud, Apple Podcasts and other podcast applications. The company previously said it wanted to avoid advertising and become "Netflix on podcasts".
However, the free layer seems to have alienated podcast creators, as Spotify did with the cameramen. PodcastOne, which has a portfolio of 300 shows, publicly opposed it. "Because the focus of the shrine was promoted exclusively as a paid subscription model, we were surprised when we watched the free model they spoke negatively and competed against," said Executive President North Pattyz. "If they want to reach our audience to promote their website, then they should make it" unthinkable "and advertise in our podcasts as hundreds of other advertisers."
In the meantime, Joe Rogan's experience quoted licensing as the reason he asked to be removed from the light. "There was no license agreement or permission for Light to have Joe Rogan's experience on their platform, "said one representative Hot Hot News. "His representatives were surprised to see the show today and asked to be removed."
The lighthouse said it had used a proxy access tracker to accelerate streaming, rather than deprive audiences of data for the audience. Since then, he has made adjustments to how he processes the sound in an attempt to address the creator's complaints. She gave him the following statement on the edge:
Blesnava appreciates the feedback we received today about how our technology works. We've listened to you and want to explain what we did in response. To be absolutely clear: the lamp was never hosted or cached audio content for any open RSS podcast. We used the pass through the access purely, because we believed it would improve the performance and speed of our users when listening to audio files for public channels, especially from smaller hosts.
Now we see that this approach has caused some confusion. We talked to more hosting providers who suggested changes that we could make to clarify that the sound for public food is not hosted or cached by the shrine, and to ensure that hosts receive the data they are accustomed to. We've already implemented these changes for iOS and Android, and we are working to re-set the webpage settings.
It seemed to satisfy some creators, including the Exponent creator Ben Thompson, who wrote on Twitter "I have no problem with the business model of light." I just want to respect my content and food, and it is now. "Others said that the biggest issue is the lack of transparency in the part of Light."[I] we will probably add our play to the shrine if they have just requested, but instead I will make a request for removal " Twitter Thrilled creator of Tech podcast Aries Williams.
