Feature Request: Apple Music support

Post by SirMaster » Wed Jun 16, 2021 8:33 pm

Looks like Apple has a MusicKit API that says this:

"MusicKit lets users play Apple Music and their local music library from your app or website. When users provide permission to access their Apple Music account, they can use your app or website to create playlists, add songs to their library, and play any of the millions of songs in the Apple Music catalog. If your app detects that the user is not yet an Apple Music member, you can offer a trial membership from within your app."

This would be amazing if Apple Music could be added as a source to Neutron.

The benefit to this would of course be being able to use Neutron's powerful PEQ with Apple's full catalog of music, and now Apple Music is all available in Lossless (for a decent price too) which seems like a great fit for Neutron.

So let's generalize this: Neutron as a client for closed streaming services like apple, amazon, spotify, youtube. And it seems that apple would like other apps to do that and makes it easy for them.

On one hand, it looks like Apple is ready to cooperate with other companies and their products to facilitate integration, but on the other hand, it sounds like your player then enters a form of "feudal relation" with Apple and its programs...
