I have made my own online SID player. It uses Jürgen Wothke's WebSid emulator and can also play digi tunes. You can browse all of HVSC #68 with it.

Check out my blog post for more information:

Yep, that and CGSC. But it's not impossible to support SID tunes not in HVSC (the "Exotic" folder is exactly that).

I've thought about making a "New at CSDb" folder, but I would have to do something clever to sync when tunes does eventually appear in HVSC. I had something preliminary with physical custom folders at one point, but I wasn't entirely satisfied with how it worked internally, and eventually that was replaced by the playlist system instead.

Another problem with new tunes at CSDb is that new SID entries does not always come as a .sid file; sometimes only as a .prg/.d64, and I honestly CBA to also rip those that are not. I'm more than busy enough on the DeepSID coding side as it is. =)

I may still return to the idea later, though.

Just for clarification, as this matter is never clear enough for everyone: If a tune is new, the .sid will eventually be in HVSC (if it was possible to rip it of course, otherwise, do your part and send them to us at hvsc@c64.org anytime, thanks), but the CSDb entries DO NOT EVER need a .sid file added as download. CSDb stores the actual C64 executables. After the HVSC update, the link to the .sid files used will be linked in the entries.
If an entry is added of a .sid file as download, it's just a nice plus, still not required.

Also big kudos to JCH/Chordian for DeepSID. I use it pretty much daily – the level of integration with other services (Remix, HVSC, CSDb, Disqus etc.) plus playlists is just mindblowing. And zero ADs!
It's an amazing discovery tool for me, especially the latest tagging feature (that we could never get here on CSDb, sigh).

SOASC links are unavailable recently. Some temporary reworking? :)

Sometimes SOASC downloads are down for extended periods of time for no reason given at the web site itself. I guess, maintenance stuff?

That's the reason I added that SOASC uptime status in the top of DeepSID, because that happens once in a while.

I'll ask them what's going on.

SOASC is maybe/probably running on some local computer accessible via dynamic dns address. It would be best to put on some cheap cloud and funded by donations.

Can you please display more info on the SID? Right now there's a small blue bar which you have to hover over to get the load address/size.

It would be nice to have info like in VSID, the basic stuff from the SID header.

Sure, I could add a sundry tab with tech info. Noted.

There's is an extra shortcut already available now, though. In the CSDb tab, if you are in the list of release thumbnails (else go BACK) click the top right external link icon to open the CSDb SID page. It has some tech info.

JCH, I see in your update blog that from 8th of November the old version of the websid player ought to be used on mobile devices. When I tried to day on my Moto G6 it was still choppy as hell. Then I tried some tunes in Hermits player (which worked without hickups before), but the output also had those mini gaps (less than websid player, though) but still enough to mangle the music real badly. I'm using the latest Firefox 68.1 browser on Android.

I've actually activated older and faster versions of the WebSid emulator on the 6th and 7th of September, but it's possible you may need to clear the browser cache. (I know my iPhone Safari is terribly stubborn about that.)

If it's a general problem that persists I'll have a look at it.
