Customers can connect to the PlayCDG Online using any standard web browser. For example, a customer with an iPhone or iPad can connect using the Safari browser. A customer with Android phone or tablet can connect to the player using the Google Chrome. When connected, the customers can search, reserve, and play the songs in the PlayCDG Online.

Having a web server, the PlayCDG Online can simultaneously play and stream the audio video outputs. That is, it will play through TVs and speakers as before in traditional ways and at the same time stream the audio and video to the customers’ phones and tablets. The phones and tablets can then play the music and lyrics from their own screens and speakers becoming mini karaoke players you can carry to everywhere, i.e., upstairs, outdoors, pool decks, etc.

The PlayCDG Online can record each and every customer’s singing from the start to the end of a show. It would then automatically parse and upload the recording into the server for customer download. Imagine the customers’ delight when they can enjoy listening to their own singing instantly using their phones or tablets.

The PlayCDG Online also comes with subscriptions services from song suppliers, such as Party Tyme and Karaoke Cloud. Fully licensed, the songs will be updated automatically and daily making sure you have the newest and latest songs. The songs will play seamlessly together with your own collections.

E-Songbook is a device such as a phone or a tablet that connects to a karaoke player to select, reserve, and play the songs. Until now however, the E-Songbook required an app to connect to a karaoke player. And since the app was hardware specific, a different karaoke player or a different phone or tablet required a different app. This complexity discouraged customers from using their phones and tablets and led to the karaoke hosts providing E-Songbooks that are pre-installed with apps.

The E-Songbooks were also prone to connection failure, delays, and incompatibility. The connection failure came from non-standard app designs. The delays came from increasing contents. The incompatibility came from exploding varieties of new phones and tablets in the market.

The built-in web server of the PlayCDG Online solves the problems above. The devices can now connect to the player using standardized web browsers such as Apple Safari, Google Chrome, or MS Edge. Apps are no longer required. The connection is built upon the worldwide TCP/IP standard protocol, is fast and efficient, and supports all models of phones and tablets.

The Customer Interface that appears when a phone or tablet connects to the PlayCDG Online is as follows.

Customer Interface

It has the controls to search, reserve, play the songs, and also to change the pitch, tempo, and voice cancel. The controls are selectable in the privilege settings.

With the ease of connecting, there comes also the savings. The hosts no longer need to prepare the E-Songbooks. The customers can now use their phones or tablets with ease. The savings will continue as the hosts also do not need to replace the E-Songbooks that are dropped or drowned.

Through the option setting, PlayCDG Online also provides multiple privilege levels through which the customers can connect to the player. The lowest is to browse the song list but without the privilege to reserve or play the songs. The highest is to have all controls which is usually assigned to the hosts. All can connect to the player at the same time and enjoy the karaoke within their different privilege levels.


A karaoke player typically plays the audio and video through the HDMI, VGA, or RCA outputs of the player. The lyrics show on a TV and the music sounds through the speakers.

PlayCDG Online with a built-in web server however can stream the audio and video outputs at the same time as it plays. That is, it can stream the music and lyrics to the phones and tablets that are connected in a network. The phones and tablets will then play the music and lyrics using their own screens and speakers becoming mini portable karaoke players.

With streaming, the customers connected to PlayCDG Online are not tied to a center TV or a main stage. They are free to move around carrying the lyrics and music from their own phones and tablets. They can enjoy the karaoke anywhere, i.e., outdoor, pool side, on deck, etc.

Online Karaoke

PlayCDG Online also allows customer to connect using Internet rather than a local network. This enables the customers from far away locations to join together online, for example, families and friends who are apart across the states.
