Make your own music video channel

If you’re sick and  tired of not being able to watch all the music videos you can handle, Tim Bormans has the solution for you.  He’s scripted a little mashup between Last.fm and YouTube that will try to match music videos with your Last.fm listening tastes.

All you have to do is head over to the site (try clicking here) and enter a Last.fm username.  If you’re looking to try it out, feel free to enter ours (4080records).

It’s definitely not a perfect fit, for example, when you do enter our username, you get all kinds of dope hip hop, but somehow they slipped in a couple of Gwen Stefani videos that I don’t quite understand.  So unless my boy fu-quon has some explaining to do, I think the script isn’t quite perfect.

It’s also possible for you to just search for an artist and just get served up with a continuous playlist of their videos.  Not bad.

Free music via YouTube

Lifehacker has again pointed out a pretty awesome technique for getting music.  YouTube has long been a source of pretty solid music and often it can be from some pretty unknown artists.

You can also find some pretty mainstream tracks if you are interested.  Just head on over to YouTube, find the video of your choice, then copy and paste the link to that video.

Go on over to FlvTo, paste the link and voila.  Free mp3.

Not that we endorse any kind of piracy, but it’s definitely the only way to get your hands on some of the original tracks on YouTube, that haven’t been released in any form.  Still, we wholeheartedly believe you should support the artists you like, so just keep that in mind.
