Eat your heart out Napster

I just discovered SeeQPod the other day. In my considered opinion, this is the coolest thing to happen with music on the Internet since Napster (the original Napster, that is).

The clever minds at SeeQPod have developed technology that scours the interweb for audio files and allows you to search, find and play them in your browser. There's also a "discover" function that (presumably) finds music similar to your tastes based on the search term.

But one of the coolest things is that they've made the songs and playlists embedable, like a YouTube video (also linkable and emailable).

So I've done a quick playlist of some of my favorite songs for your listening pleasure and my playing around with the app.

Check it out and tell me if you think it's as cool as I do.

SeeqPod Music beta - Playable Search

Of course, since the music industry is trying to kill audio on the web (and commit industrial hara-kiri in the process), this service will probably be shut down by a-hole lawyers in a few months. So enjoy it while you can.

  1. Excellent find. Excellent playlist, too. I'll have Take Five in my head all day now...

  2. AH! That's PERFECT! It solves my little dilema brilliantly!

    I can post a song without the risk of getting bitch slapped by Greg Beck!

    Good work!

  3. That is a great find Emaw but what about your next post and the one after that. Your player will eventually get pushed off your front page. Then you will have to repost it.

    I am looking for a way to put the player on either side or even at the top just below the masthead.

  4. The D,

    It's pretty easy to change the width of the player. In the embed code, you just change the "width" variable to 250 (or whatever). Paste the embed code in a new sidebar item in your Blogger template and, like Taco Bell, you're good to go.

  5. emaw- Thanks! I actually did put it in my sidebar before I read your comment. Works great!

  6. Thank you for this, looks likes it's easier to use than project playlist!!! I might even try to put my podcast up using this thingy over the weekend.

    Pretty damn awesome emaw!!!

  7. greatness!

    Now bow down before my flawless playlists.

Your turn to riff...
