Anywhere.FM

Online radio has been running into a few licensing snags here and there lately, and it’s really unfortunate to see the situation get this ugly. We all love to listen to music, but it’s sometimes difficult to define what you can and cannot do with it. The Napster debacle, DRM, and countless other music copyright matters have been made public over the past few years, but for us, we just want to listen to our personal library of music whether we’re at home, out and about with an iPod, or on the Internet. Anywhere.FM is making it possible to keep your music online and listen to it at will.

You already know what you like, so why not listen to what you like? With Anywhere.FM, you can upload your music collection and listen to it through an attractive online interface that resembles iTunes. The playback process is fantastic, and it works just as good as a regular desktop application would. To show how complete it is, there’s even a visualizer. The site will also enable you to find out what your friends and other members of the community are listening to from their personal libraries. Thanks to the power of the Internet, your music library goes where you go.

    Wow… Very cool way to share music. If I am in an online game, my friends and I can listen to the same cool tunes. if you want to see what I am uploading (to kill those pesky monsters by) check out: anywhere.fm/dtdude)

    Tried Anywhere.FM today. Choose 20 songs to be uploaded. Progress showed all 20 songs accepted and archived, yet I ended up with only 7 songs in my list. These 7 work fine to listen to. What happened to the other 13 songs? Is there some sort of copyright infringement here. If so, then the site is useless.

    Sounds very interesting!

    Although, even though you are uploading your songs to be listened to, IF the number of listeners can affect quality,

    With jetCast your connection speed and processor affects how many can listen at one time. I think the same is true of other broadcast programs, with your computer doing the broadcasting. With “AnyWhere FM” you are uploading to a web site which intern is rebroadcasting.

    Also even though jukebox with Qnext allows you to listen to your music from any where, OR send a link to anyone using the latest Windows, MAC or Linux software, to listen to your music (their only needing a broswer.)

    You are limited by music formats, and your computer and Qnext needs to be running. With AnyWhere FM you are only dependent on the web site.

    So, I’ve got a batch of CD’s ripped to my computer and then synced to my MP3 player, so i can listen to them pretty much wherever i am, one way or another. So now i should put them on the web so i can listen to them when all i have to work with is somebody else’s computer? Not sure i see the point.
