Skreemr – MP3 Search to Replace Seeqpod

Seeqpod, best known as the free “playable” music search engine, had become immensely popular in the iPhone/iPod Touch world, namely because it actually worked. Users typed in a song, and got exactly what they asked for. Those with jailbroken iPods and iPhones eventually found a way, using a program called dTunes and a Safari plugin allowing them to download media, to save music from the site directly to their devices. After Seeqpod was shut down, for obvious legal technicalities involving music distribution, hundreds of piraters were displaced, roaming the internet for new ways to download mp3’s. Many people switched to BeeMP3, the shoddy and malnourished excuse for an MP3 search engine, and thats fine. For most people. I decided to dig a little farther, to see if there was anything that could replace the marvelous Seeqpod. What did I find? Skreemr.com

Skreemr, in a nutshell, is exactly like every other music search engine, but with  MUCH more content. I’ve noticed songs I can’t find on BeeMP3 or on Fl4sh.com often times are found quickly in Skreemr. Best yet, you can download the MP3 files you find onto your jailbroken iPod (using dTunes and the safari plugin), just like you could with Seeqpod.

One last thing worth mentioning is that Skreemr.com uses something called “Audiorank,” which automatically sorts your results by the best audio qualities. I really, really appreciate this feature, because I hate listening to songs that just sound terrible. I mix music in my spare time, and poor quality really gets to me. So if you want at least decent quality, I strongly recommend trying out Skreemr.com.

    Does anyone know much about the legal issues surrounding sites like skreemr?

    From what I understand, skreemr is legal because it collects music to listen to and download, from sources like blogs, rather than actually hosting it. Since skreemr is not posting the music they can't be held responsible for who listens to, downloads or posts it, but what about the people are are posting it?

    People post music to their blogs that is easy to download for free. Is this legal? Why or why not?

    Thanks,

      To be honest, 90% of the time, its totally illegal. The thought, however, is
      that if you aren't hosting it on your own server space, its not your
      responsibility. Its akin to, say, knowing where a bunch of crack is hidden,
      and telling people, but you personally having nothing to do with the crack,
      nor how it got there. Bad analogy? Yes. Makes sense? I sure hope so.
