Music Spider – MSpider.net aims to help many different types of music lovers to explore music; one user can explore music of different regions or types, another might be curious to hear music related to an artist that he/she enjoys and another may want to generate a jukebox to play background music at the office. Because the music is located on youTube this creates an opportunity to find a wide range of results (interviews, live events, singles etc.). Users create stations to store their compilations and can share stations with their ‘friends’ by posting links on their facebook timeline.
APIs used include: YouTube, LastFM, FacebookGraph. More at our Music Spider profile.
