Finetune RIA : Evolution of the Mixtape!
Bling Blang! I have been itching to talk about this one. This is for the music lovers out there!
Take a look at the music player I have on the right>>>>
I have wanted to talk about this one for a little while now. This is probably my favourite project I have ever worked on to date. Not really a full RIA or anything, but probably one of the coolest widgets going on!
My friends, Legal Free Music is the topic. And as much as you can manage!
Here is a link to a blog that Gabor Vida here at Teknision prepared about the project:
So basically, we have worked with Finetune to create an embeddable audio player. these things can be embedded in any page anywhere as either an IFrame or just straight embed tags.
If you right click on the player you will get options that allow you to copy out the needed HTML.
Here is the player on my MySpace account
The current playlist is the one you see right away, but I have a few others, and you can check them out by clicking on the green member button in the top left.
So, most will say hey that's cool, nice interface and stuff, but Tone, your playlists suck!
Then I say, make your own BOI!
The player demoed here will be available early next week for anyone to embed in their own sites, MySpace accounts, etc everywhere! You will be able to get the embed code for your own playlists from the Finetune site, and stream all your favourite music for free.
I will be dropping a lot more about this project as it rolls out next week.! But hey, go and start making playlists now, no reason to wait!
Once you get into the site, you'll really enjoy it if you are a music fan. Everyone at our office uses the embedded player now, more than they use ITunes!
If anyone just can't wait to try it, If you let me know what your Finetune user name is, I can give you a temporary link for the player that will let you show your own playlists right now. Just drop a note in the comments with the details.
