Won't this merely hasten Muxtape's demise?

Everything good eventually dies. Might as well make sure its corpse is pretty and young.

This just reminded me of how awesome audiogalaxy was and made me pissed off at the RIAA again.

This is a thing of beauty. You have done a good thing this day.

Awesome. Now I just have to think of what I want to search for.

You still can't download the mp3 files from an individual muxtape, though - right?

Not without using GreaseMonkey.

Here's the Greasemonkey script for downloading from Muxtape.

You did it, Korou. You made me cry a little.
Thank you!

After combining the greasemonkey script and the muxfind, my jaw has dropped on the floor. Now, I just need to find someone that has busdriver's "Unemployed Black Astronaut"

Sweet Jesus, who's paying for all this fucking bandwidth? They're using Amazon S3, of which the storage is NOT CHEAP.. with no ads. (thanks for the greasemonkey link)

This is a great way around the Muxtape TOS. I can imagine the formation of Muxtape rings in which 20 members of a release group host one file from an album each so that the whole thing is downloadable.

(no value judgments about the morality or economics of piracy made.)

Yeeaaaaah boi! Greasemonkey yyeeeeaaah

Am I missing something? MuxFind tells me I can only search for the name or url of a tape, so finding individual songs by artist or title is out. Hell, I tried searching for a Muxtape I made myself and it didn't find that.

Crap, they just changed it to only search for the name or url of a tape, before I got the damn greasy monkey thing working. Crap, crap, crap, crap. Yes, before about an hour ago you could search for an artist name or song name. Obviously, the CAD letter arrived.

So how did it work? Did it just spider muxtape? Seems like the kind of thing a p2p distributed directory is made for.

Wow, they are quick. Back to doing things the hard way.

This is the message I got:

Sorry!

I'm afraid there's not going to be any more keyword searches.
At least for now - because of the obvious legal issues.


What exactly ARE the legal issues here? I mean, if the site is searchable what's wrong with showing the results of such a search?

I was sad, but /<-R/\D1C\/S, god of copyright infringement, saw fit to release a Battlestar Galactica preair to make up for the loss of muxfind.

Aaaaaaand we're back. Game on, everyone!

what are you all so excited about? How is a mixtape so much more excitng than a playlist ?

Here's a nice alternate interface.

Searching appears to be back to normal.
