New Music Video Jukebox, TubeRadio.fm Fires Up the Tubes to Present Online October 15, 2009Posted by David W. King in Uncategorized.
TubeRadio.fm is a web application that looks and feels like a music player where users can quickly find, listen to, and build playlists of their favorite artists’ music, powered by the world’s largest online music library. TubeRadio makes it easy to find songs, official music videos, live performances, bootlegs, rare recordings, in other words any of the millions of videos available on YouTube, all for free and with nothing to install.
TubeRadio comes with several built-in tools that help the user automatically find music. By entering an artist’s name into the Discography Search, users are presented with the complete list of releases by that artist. Users can choose from the list and with a single click a video is automatically found for each track on every selected album. The key difference between Youtube, where one can already create playlists of videos, is that TubeRadio is built from the ground up to look and feel like a music player, while also providing additional information for each video as it’s playing, including lyrics and information on the artist, as well as track and album list, and similar artists. Creating and adding to playlists is simplified, and all of your music videos are easily and automatically catalogued. As Google Docs is to Microsoft Word, TubeRadio is to iTunes or WinAmp,” said Rogerio Mota, TubeRadio co-founder and lead designer.
TubeRadio also incorporates a number of social networking features. Each user has a profile which lists their playlists, their frequently played artists and videos. “The possibilities with sharing playlists is exciting. You could share a ‘mixed tape’ that changes from time to time with friends. If you’re into video blogging, your subscribers immediately see all the new videos you put up. The idea for TubeRadio came to be as an observation of how YouTube is being used for music listening. “My friend Helga doesn’t have much music,” said Rogerio Mota. “When she has friends over, she plays music from a number of YouTube videos she bookmarked on her laptop.”
