So Listening Room might not be free anymore.

Guh. I know it could just be a couple of cents, but that's still going to be a pain. Maybe it won't happen, though. Who knows.

Raising 50 grand from a fractured community of communities that doesn't fully exist yet, for a non-free service?

Dead in the water. A difficult task, to say the least.

"That said, the fact is that Listening Room involves streaming music over the Internet, and according to US copyright laws you need additional permission from the copyright holder to do that."

"Listening Room can operate under existing agreements for Internet radio broadcasting. This is called ?statutory licensing?, because it?s determined by law ? the same rules apply to everyone. I keep track of all the songs getting streamed, and pay the standard rates to licensing agencies. Copyright holders get paid, and Listening Room can operate without any fear of getting shut down. Yay!"

So Listening Room might run as a paid service / or on donations / ads / whatever you

Hakurei Reimu 10:59 PM
makes you wonder why is independent music growing so much

headcrabs 10:59 PM
indie companies grow so much because they don't fucking deal with the riaa crap

"So, for example, if you have 10 people in a room and everybody kicks in one credit, you can all listen to 10 songs. I?m still working on the exact figures, but each song credit will only cost a few cents. It?s super inexpensive, and I think the fact that people are paying for the entire room to hear a song is a good fit for the social vibe of Listening Room."

Bah stupid. If the copyright holders had their way they'd make it illegal to let someone else listen to your ipod.
He better just go on donations or banner ads. No audio ads or its done.

If you guys want an alternative to listening room, Mumuplayer does the job quite well.  The only catch is that the rooms are limited to 5 persons each.

So I found something to replace Listening Room.

It has all the features of Listening Room, plus support for YouTube videos. Only issue is that you have to have a Facebook account to be in the room, but that's easily remedied.

If you go up to the account option (top right) you can change your name to display as something else and remove the link to your facebook profile.

Also, there seems to be a problem with using Youtube links for uploading, it skips itself and the 10 or so songs following. So don't do that  :V

There were Firefox and Chrome users saying the site worked fine, although there were some uploading issues. YouTube songs play for a short while and then skip when they play at all. The chat can be laggy. But, when the songs upload, it works better than LR.

I tried playing a few Youtube songs. It worked perfectly for a few songs. Then it stopped in the middle of a song, skipped to the middle of another song far down the playlist, went backwards through the playlist, and cut off half the time from the songs that it played. So yeah...

Otherwise, the functionality looks good. I haven't had any problems with uploading songs directly from my library yet, non-English doesn't seem to be a problem. and it's nice that you can upload multiple songs in one go. The volume control is also a nice touch, and I like the progress bar.

It's annoying, but you can always create an alternate facebook account relatively quickly.

Hopefully they remove the "facebook only" part...but that suggestion's almost a year in the making.

Just wanted to provide a bit of background on why, at least for the moment, we've set up MixApp to require login via Facebook --

This was ultimately an issue of limited resources on our part. We needed a way to integrate social networking functionality quickly and easily, and for the many, many people who use Facebook regularly, a Facebook-based account provided the functionality we needed with relatively little software development effort -- so we see this as the best way to grow the MixApp community while we're getting off the ground.

To be sure, nothing is set in stone, and in the future I expect we'll integrate with Twitter, OpenID, OAuth, OpenSocial, and every other single sign on or social graph system with enough traction to make sense. However, given MixApp's friend-based nature this is a non-trivial development task compared to the simplicity of the Facebook-only setup, and for now we need to focus on more immediate goals.

For what it's worth, the rest of the MixApp team and I also have concerns about Facebook's attitude towards privacy and control, and we're eager to get the resources we need to give you a choice on this front.

If you'd like to know when we have a non-Facebook login option, please let me know (brahn at mixapp dot com), and I'll shoot you an email when we do. Until then, I really appreciate your patience as we try to get MixApp off the ground.

Last few days we've been successfully using the mixapp room without any major issues at all.
Even YT videos decided to work. Sometimes.

It's quite stable, and I don't even have to use Chrome for it, it's doing great on FF too.
