The Yahoo MediaShare Browser has integrated Magnatune's entire catalog into its browser.
As their page describes it: "This plugin lets you surf the web for music. Look for tracks using Yahoo! Audio Search from within YME, or listen to some of the most recently posted stuff on the net. Check out what's popular or access the Webjay playlist community and Magnatune. It's a great way to be exposed to new music online!"
Specifically, this means that if you download and install the Yahoo Music Engine and run it, and install the Web Media Browser, aseveral music sources now appear, including Magnatune and Webjay:
in each genre, you can now listen to music and make playlists. You can rank the songs you like for later revisiting.
All the music in the browser are our creative-commons licensed 128k mp3s, which sound nice, and also have Shannon's "you just heard..." message at the end.
All in all, this is a great way to listen to Magnatune's catalog, build playlists and organize your favorites. It's also nice because people who use this player to find music from other sources will now be exposed to Magnatune.
I received email from William White, the author of this plugin, a few weeks ago and pointed him to our API and XML data feeds which he used to integrate Magnatune's music into the plugin. This is a nice example of both Creative Commons and the open XML/MySQL data feed leading to wonderful results...
