Mixtube: YouTube mixtapes
September 23, 2008 5:28 PM   Subscribe

Mixtube allows users to create online playlists of songs on YouTube, and play those assembled by others. Both mixing and playing have a nice simple interface. Here's one I took a few minutes to make.

YouTube already has play list creation, it will cycle through a list of songs. But this is nice for sharing play lists in a central place, and I assume no need to log in to YouTube. Playlists are important to re-assemble classical music broken into parts because of length.

It looks almost exactly like (now defunct) Muxtape. Any relationship, or did they just rip off the design?

Just for personal use there's also YouPlayer (in firefox that is)

mrgrimm: Their about page says they used opentape's (open source) code.

Now I can actually do stuff (which is to say "browse the internets") while my babies watch Sesame Street on my lap.

The playlist creation link above is kind of old (for doing it on YT itself). The Help is more up-to-date: Playlists (it's been made simpler).

I'm guessing that using YouTube clips allows them to sidestep any copyright issue. After all, is YouTube's fault if there are problems in that area.

Haha! Yeah, maybe I'll start using this for FPPs.

Very nice idea!

I created a quick playlist here.

Hopefully this will be successful...if not...well, then it won't be alone in the deadpool startups.
