Take the music world of YouTube and optimize access to that music world using an innovative and user-friendly interface and you have Muziic. This is exactly what a father and son team developed that has not only created a flurry of controversy, but has literally opened up an entire world of music, from top artist, that can be streamed across the internet to your PC (or mobile device). The father and son team describe Muziic as the world’s first YouTube-compliant music video service based on YouTube’s open API. Muziic launched February 25th, 2009
Muziic is a true multi-platform service that allows you to stream virtually any song or music video on-demand, build custom playlists, tune-in to thousands of internet radio stations and browse high quality music content – anytime, anywhere.
By signing up (for FREE) to Muziic you have option of using their web based web player or you can download the desktop player. In my case, I simply use the web interface.
With Muziic you can load, customize and save playlists that you can revisit anytime from anywhere. You have access to song lyrics, music videos, internet radio stations, albums, artists, and can even do some karaoke.
