Hulu gets into the music video biz -- one artist at a time

While YouTube, MTV, Vevo, MySpace, and other online video sites compete for the title of "Hulu for music videos," it looks like Hulu is hoping to get in on the action itself. Hulu has made a name for itself as a destination site for professionally produced TV shows and movies. Sure, it's only available in the US, and it doesn't have nearly as many TV episodes or movies as you can find from your...

Blinkx launches a mediocre music search engine

Online video site Blinkx is branching out into music with the launch of Blinkx Music Beta, a search engine for online music videos. The front page is simple enough. You're greeted with a search box, a list of top artists, and the ability to click a letter to see results starting with A through Z. You can search for artists, albums, or songs. Unfortunately, the search index is pretty sparse....

Blip.fm adds YouTube videos

Last week "twitter for music" service Blip.fm announced that most of its music would be streaming from imeem. This week, the company added YouTube music videos, which not only greatly expands Blip.fm's music library, it also gives users a reason to hang out on the web site rather than using third party clients like Blipster. Well, a tleast until someone develops a good desktop client that will...

YouTube partners with Universal to launch music video service

YouTube is already home to more music videos than probably any other site on the internet. But YouTube and Universal Music Group have announced plans to launch a new site, called Vevo, which will be dedicated exlusively to music videos. Vevo will be an advertising supported site, and the goal is to generate more money from views of professionally produced music videos than music studios like...

Muziic media player streams audio from YouTube - for now

Muziic is one of the most interesting desktop media players I've seen in a long time. Too bad it probably won't last. The site looks a lot like your average iTunes/Winamp/Songbird style music player. It lets you create playlists, search your library, and browse by category. But here's what sets Muziic apart from the crowd: The music isn't stored on your computer. The application's music library...

Google quietly deals with YouTube audio copyright violations

YouTube has been removing videos that violate copyright for a while. But now it looks like Google is taking a new approach toward some videos by removing only the audio tracks. I guess the idea is that some people upload fan-made videos featuring copyrighted music tracks. The company can leave the videos online while removing the music that was uploaded without the content owner's permission....

MiniTube Winamp plugin adds YouTube videos to your playlist

MiniTube is a plugin for WinAmp that attempts to find music videos from YouTube for every song in your playlist. Here's how it's supposed to work: A song starts to play, and MiniTube will automatically find the best music video available for the song and start playing it. That's the theory anyway. But the actual practice is a bit shakier. That's because MiniTube just grabs the first video it can...

MTV Music: Hulu for music videos, or too little too late?

MTV launched a new music video hub today at MTVMusic.com. And it looks remarkably like online video site Hulu. Except instead of hosting hundreds of movies and TV shows, the site hosts thousands of music videos. The site has a nice mix of new and older videos. You can watch videos on the site or embed them on another web page. And you can watch in full screen. There's also a handy "similar...

Search YouTube for music by artist, album with Jogli

We'll let you in on a little secret: There are a ton of music videos and live performances on YouTube. What? You knew that? Well, then you also probably know how hard it can be to find every song on an album and play it in order. YouTube is really designed for searching for videos one at a time. But Jogli helps organize the mess. Jogli is basically a search engine and music video player. Search...

PluggedIn: High quality music videos from popular artists

There are plenty of music videos on popular video sharing sites like YouTube. Some of them were even uploaded by content owners who had the rights to the videos. But many aren't, and there's always a chance that music video you bookmarked yesterday could be pulled down tomorrow. PluggedIn is a new music video site that doesn't have that problem because are all posted with the cooperation of 3...

Painful collection of Google-themed music videos

NetworkWorld has put together a collection of songs about Google. For the most part, they're not particularly good. But most are somewhat funny, whether they were supposed to be or not. And in case you were wondering, here are a few words that (sort of) rhyme with Google: Poodle Strudle Fuedel Noodle Caboodle OK, we acknowledge, most of those words don't actually rhyme with Google....

MyStrands: Create your own music video channel

MyStrands.tv is sort of like Pandora or Last.fm for music videos. All you do is enter an artist or genre and MyStrands will start playing music videos it thinks you'll like. What makes MyStrands different from those other services is that MyStrands content comes entirely from YouTube. As such, it's not clear whether all of the videos are 100% legal. In fact, we're going to go out on a limb and...

FIQL TV lets you create, watch and share music video playlists

Online music community site FIQL is launching a new service today called FIQL TV. While FIQL has been around since 2005, its business model has sort of limited growth. The service lets you create and import music playlists. You can share those playlists with other users. There's just one problem: it was kind of a hassle for anyone to actually use those playlists to listen to music. The site...
