Downloading Music!

by: Mike Yeager

MP3 technology was the catalyst to one of the biggest revolutions in the media business in nearly 30 years. When cassette tapes became popular in the late 1970's and early 1980's, the music industry did the now-familiar Chicken Little dance about its way of life being destroyed. The industry quickly co-opted that threat, turning albums on cassettes into a very lucrative business. In the mid-80's, CDs promised superior quality at lower prices, but we wound up only getting the better quality. Consumers never got the promised price break—album prices continued to climb. Those chickens would come home to roost soon enough.

It's taken the music industry the better part of ten years to finally devise some legal alternatives to the P2P file-sharing networks, and now there are well over a dozen online music services legally offering a wide range of genres to satisfy most musical palettes. Aside from one service's downloads being three cents cheaper than the next, what sets them apart? Which one gives you most flexibility about how you enjoy your music? And which one really gives you the most of what you want for your money?

by: Mansi gupta

In this age of computer technology access and manipulation of information at any point of time and in any form has become absolutely common. With invention of CD, Camcorder, MP3, digital cameras and many more gizmos like them access to audio and video files have become a commonplace affair for most of us. Everyone just expect that if one has any sound track or any video clip they must be able to play and view it every time and at all places. But the problem is that these many diversified instruments each have their own format for storing the various audio and video clips.

It’s not certain that the audio CD that produced excellent sounds in the MP3 would perform equally well on the home theater system at the house. Problems eventually arise when you eagerly switch on the computer to view some of the pictures recorded on the handy cam or when you want to listen to some rare and favorite sound track on the computer. After all the endeavor to attach the cords and devices you find that all the efforts was to only find the computer display a message that it did not support the format in which information was supplied to it and hence could not do anything with the audio or video. Believe me its very frustrating when such incidents happen. Usually one has to just sit back, get frustrated with the technology and miss their very rare favorite sound track. One desperately wishes that if they had some thing in this world that could change the format of the file and make the file work on the device they had.

Blaze media pro is a perfect solution to all these problems and now you don’t have to miss viewing your much-loved pictures and hearing to the best of tracks just because the format in which they were stored was different.

It’s easy to follow steps enables even a novice to easily handle all the technicalities involved in the process.

Now each time one requires a different type of format exchanging they have to rush and mess with another device. Blaze media pro brings an end to all these hurdles in the way to universal access of information. It offers an one stop venue for all the your digital requirements.

Free Music Video Downloads

by: Jeff Schuman

Listening to all of your favorite songs whenever you want is always exciting. No more having to wait for it to be played on the radio or have to go out and buy the whole CD for just one particular song. When you can download all of your favorite songs for free it just makes it that much better. What if you could download the music videos to all of your favorite songs for free and add to the excitement every time you listen to the song? In this article I’ll discuss some of the best places to find free music video downloads and why some free music video download sites are better than others.

As mentioned in a previous article I wrote, Music Video Downloads, not all sites are going to be capable of good quality free music video downloads. Some are going to allow you to preview the first 30 seconds of a song, while other sites allow
you to watch only one song, then you must become a member to view more. However, there are sites out there that allow you to download good quality videos for free.

One of the bigger downsides to free video downloads, though, is that most places only allow you to watch the video and not save it to a file to view laer. Yes, you can view it anytime you want by simply clicking on the video and having it load in about
15 seconds. However, if there is a certain list of songs you would like to observe, then you’ll have to search through the site to find them as oppose to having them all saved in a

Another downside to free music video downloads is the fact that most sites contain only popular artists and songs, so the unknown bands may be harder to find videos for. This is not to say that the selection is small, but it is limited to more of
the current hot hits.

One of the better sites that I have found for downloading music videos for free is www.artistdirect.com. Once you get to the home page at the top is a button for movies and videos, this is where you will find all of the free music video downloads. On
this page you will find the top music videos for various categories such as hip-hop, pop, rock, and so on. Plus they have the top 5 music videos currently, with a button away from getting the top 600 music videos. I have found this site to be
very quick and efficient with downloading videos, but as mentioned earlier you are only capable of viewing the videos and can not save them to a library or folder.

One of the more common and well known sites to find free music video downloads is at www.mtv.com. For this site they have it set up with six different categories that you can click on. As you click on one of the categories it brings up the top six
videos under that category currently, then you are able to browse all the videos for that category if you please. Or to make things easier, they have a place where you can simply search for a specific video.

I have listed two of the more popular sites to find free music video downloads, and two of the easier sites to search through. If you were to conduct a search for free music video download sites on google, there are about 131 million different sites or
pages connected to this phrase. So as you can see there are several different places to look for the videos, it’s just up to you to find them. The two I have provided would be good ones to start at, but feel free to broaden your horizon and begin
searching for the sites to find your favorite music videos for free.
