neat!

That looks great. I tried to add something but don't think it took. Already running late this morning though so know time to fool with it.

it's really glitchy but once they get this worked out it could be ilx with music.

how kind of you to allow ilxor to dj your day

Algerian Goalkeeper, Friday, 14 January 2011 15:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

maybe it's about not uploading more than two or three songs at a time?

clearly this is meant for me to DJ everyone's day, right?

it seems to be crazy glitchy, but the potential is awesome.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 14 January 2011 15:12 (3 years ago) Permalink

it's gonna need constant pruning and attention; i think certain tracks stick in its craw and you need to remove them as they come up.

i did a refresh and it didn;t work and then i opened it in another window and that didn't work and then i made a cup of tea and that really worked but it didn't have any cake with it so that part was good rather than great

so, are we supposed to upload mp3s to it ?
if so, then surely this is open to the same kind of troubles as muxtape ?

mark e, Friday, 14 January 2011 15:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

has anyone upped songs you like yet? I couldnt get in the room, it just froze everytime and im on firefox

Algerian Goalkeeper, Friday, 14 January 2011 15:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

several people have upped stuff! feel free to try creating a different room and posting link here if you wanna.
you're not uploading the mp3s per se, you're streaming them just to your room. you can't replay.

From the novel "Spinster Dinner" (forksclovetofu), Friday, 14 January 2011 15:44 (3 years ago) Permalink

what stuff you liked has been upped? Did ilxor up some metal?

Algerian Goalkeeper, Friday, 14 January 2011 15:58 (3 years ago) Permalink

it pulls your mp3 info including the album cover and then the album cover appears as a record, which spins.

aw it's not doing the spinning album covers for me

tempted up upload Mouldy Old Dough by Earl Brutus - but concnered this would allow the track to be 'leaked' ?

okay, so if the record is totally black, it won't load the song. If it's got a picture on it, it's fine. If there's gray on the record, that's the playtime.

this doesn't allow direct downloads though does it? it's just streaming? it'd be more comparable to internet radio then, or someone running a shoutcast server, which i don't know the legality of.

yeah.
i realised once i got a room up and running and started playing around.
going to try and figure out which album artwork is going to be fun to watch spinning.

I guess "Listo Medellin" didn't play then since I shut my PC off when I left for work.

wch is okay because I forgot I only like about 1/3 of that song a lot and the rest is kind of weird.

re: turntable.fm

Can't remember if it was mentioned here or not, but I just posted this in another place and thought I'd reiterate here.

I've played around on turntable.fm a little bit and, while it has some cool aspects, it turns the experience into more of a contest or game than I'm comfortable with. I'd rather just hang with people I know and play tunes instead of voting things up or down. Also, the chat portion of turntable.fm is deemphasized in favor of some totally dumb "virtual club" setting which looks like an 8 year-old's video game. No thanks.

this is all true but I like that it automatically rotates among the room DJs so your tracks are shuffled better

also if you just create a small room and have a few people in there it's just hanging with people you know playing tunes

dmr, Monday, 27 June 2011 22:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

i.e. you don't have to bother with the voting business

also like that it sends you an email if one of the "DJs" you're "following" logs on

dmr, Monday, 27 June 2011 22:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

so you can know if any friends are on

dmr, Monday, 27 June 2011 22:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

Your positives register with me, but I still think the format/layout is really non-conducive to a good time.

Alpaca Lips (Johnny Fever), Monday, 27 June 2011 22:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

it definitely looks corny. the avatars are like Wii characters.

dmr, Monday, 27 June 2011 22:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh yeah forgot I also like that you can search and play tracks from a database. I can't really upload anything from work so I could only use outloud as a listener

turntable.fm, front page:

We're very sorry, but while we would love to let you in and rock out with us, we need to currently restrict turntable access to only the United States due to licensing constraints.

We are working very hard to try and get you in as soon as possible.

mike t-diva, Tuesday, 28 June 2011 09:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

That settles it, I guess? I think Outloud has worked really nicely, with few of the problems Listening Room had. It's a pity you have to use you a Twitter/FB account to log in, but you can just create a fake Twitter account like I did. I don't see any need to use another site at the moment.
