Millions of songs on your website

January 25th, 2010


Medianet (http://www.mndigital.com/) offers website owners an easy way to add music content to their pages with many different widgets. Medianet calls them “Web Components”.

Song of the Day

The Song of the Day widget allows your readers to experience a different song each day. They have the ability to listen and purchase music without having to leave your site. (JavaScript)

Most of Medianet’s “Web Components” are geared towards websites with musical content. The widgets have the ability to deliver music that is directly related to the content on your site.
I would assume that if you were to write a post about Rage Against The Machine, the “Web Components” would then deliver Rage Against The Machine music and possibly music related to that group.

Media Charts

Relevant Media Search

Media Explorer

There are seven “Web Components” available from Medianet. Some simply create links in your content to a JavaScript page that provides more information about the selected artist. Other widgets provide detailed stories about an artist with links to purchase their music.

MediaNet’s Web Components provide the simple, quickest and easiest way to add engaging digital content to your website. Take advantage of MediaNet’s trusted MN Open technology platform, a library of 7 million songs and music videos and a feature-rich set of components to keep your users on your site.

With MediaNet’s Web Components, all you have to do to is choose your configuration and then copy and paste small code snippets, without any coding experience, to dynamically display music content wherever you put them on your site.

Check out Medianet. They offer far more musical solutions than I can cover in this post.

Soundcloud widgets…rock!

January 15th, 2010


I’m sure you have heard of SoundCloud by now. Its the perfect music sharing service without the “Eye Patch”.

This video explains SoundCloud perfectly. (I love her voice!)

SoundCloud: The Tour from SoundCloud on Vimeo.

SoundCloud has some pretty cool widgets available.

Just like the name. It is a bare bones, playable music link. There are also options available to “short code” add this to WordPress.


This widget is more suited to the blog sidebar. The widget offers links to info, sharing and ability to purchase tracks. There are volume controls and simple song stats as well.

This here is the showcase of the SoundCloud widgets. All the features of the “Expressionist” widget above, plus the ability to comment at any point on the track, right in the widget. I put an image in place, but I am also putting the live widget below so you can try it out and see.
