Hey guys. A few weeks ago I wanted a way to listen to sequential songs on here, as well as an easier way to discover random new tunes. So I made a ChipMusic web app.

The beta is available here: https://chipmusic.fm (latest Chrome, Opera or Firefox needed, for now)

I hope this was OK. I was mostly just scratching my own itch and I'm hoping I didn't step on any toes in the process. This wouldn't have been able to get off the ground at all if this site didn't have such an amazingly complete RSS feed, or songs licensed under CC. You guys all rule. smile

I'll write a blog post later about how I made it if anyone's interested in that. Mostly just vanilla JS and Firebase.

If you find any problems please post ITT. It's a bit janky right now but has all the basic features. If you use Chrome on Android you can install it to your homescreen for a better experience, too.

Thanks!

I like it smile

Very cool idea. I approve. big_smile

Thanks guys! smile

Defiantly neat, thanks!

I don't want to sound mean but I don't really like the music player/browsing here on cm.o... which is exactly the reason why I dig this so much! Great work, I'm going to listen to a lot of rare gems

this is the best

it should be on the site proper! I'd even put forward the idea that it's the default music listening widget when people visit, with the option to access the expanded grid version

I dig it. Maybe add an automatically starting next song function, instead of having to press play.  I still like the cmo style, because of most recent at top, and search function, but this other way is really cool. Options are nice.

Thanks so much guys! Your posts are super encouraging. big_smile

It does on desktop, but mobile browsers have a restriction around it.

But I have a workaround that's almost ready that will get around it. heart

hey this is a really great idea! my tunes aren't creative commons (yet) but please include them! smile

This is great!  Needs autoplay, and volume controls.  Maybe a way to keep the volume of all the songs similar automatically, like the smart sound feature on tvs?

it would be cool to show the title and artist of the current tune in the window/tab title too

Thanks for all the feedback guys!

Protip: there are keyboard shortcuts. Shift+D to download, ← to skip back, Space to play/pause, → to skip forward, Shift+L to like, and V to view the current song on ChipMusic.org.

Changes coming this weekend when I can work on this some more:

- Next song autoplay on mobile (desktop already does)
- Better queuing behavior
- Ability to un-like songs from the dialog
- Ability to play liked songs and songs in history right from the dialog
- Song title and artist in the tab title
- Clearer offline state

Some future things I want do to:

- Notifications with media controls
- Dark theme
- Playlists
- Automatically store certain playlists and liked songs offline
- Apps for all da OSes
- Optional full-page visualizer
- Updating the URL with the current song for easy sharing

Once again thank you for all the comments. I'm super excited people like this and are using it. smile

Unfortunately I don't think I can filter special cases like this... I also don't have it setup to sync changes to old songs... sad

ah ok! so it should work if i remove them and re-submit under the new license?

i've been using this and it's great! discovered some great tunes and artists i wasn't aware of previously smile

If you make them CC here I can manually make that change on CM.fm for you, no need to resubmit if you don't want. smile

So happy to hear it's been useful for you. big_smile

oh, it looks like there is no way to change the licensing to a song that's already been submitted sad maybe a mod can help? if not it's no big deal to resubmit. thanks smile
