Seeqpod search and listen to music

Seeqpod offers two ways to find new and exciting music. The first is the so called PodCrawler which constantly displays songs that have been found and added to the database. From what I can tell they are crawling official band and company websites as well as podcasts and probably other websites as well.

If you click on the icon before the song title you add it to your playlist which can be saved, shared and embedded. Instead of trying out random finds you can also perform a search for an artist, band name or title and add those found to your playlist as well.

This means that is is relatively easy to build a large playlist with songs that you like and listen to them while online. The link to the song is displayed as well but not clickable by default.

There is however the possibility to use a program like Grab++ to grab the link and send it to a download manager such as Orbit downloader to download the song. I tested this method and it works perfectly.

Update: The Seeqpod website and music service is no longer available. The website returns a 404 not found error. It is not clear what caused the closure of the site.

We suggest you either use a free for all music site like Jamendo, which offers thousands of albums that you can download for free to your computer, or a music streaming service such as Spotify or Pandora Radio. While they require that you create an account first to use them, and may even run ads in between some of the songs, they are free to use unless you want to use the premium service options that they provide you with. If you do, you get an ad free listening experiment, mobile access and more for a price.

    The warning message about AAC streams when you load streams is because you don’t have the free Orban AAC/aacPlus Player Plugin installed.

      Justin, thanks for the information.

    does this support AAC ? or only mp3 streaming

      I’d say it supports all pls streams but I have not tried that so cannot verify it 100%.

    Thank you Martin for a most informative and viable solution (it allowed me to play streams from a Netherland internet radio station in my WMP)! Continued success to you!

    You must convert file.pls to file.m3u
    because file.pls open with winamp and file.m3u open with wmp.

    Hey, even i can do it, i stumbled through it and it works great! The only instruction advice i will add as i had to figure this out, when the wmp box opens that says save or open the bar on right says wmp click that drop down and select “open pls in wmp” once you do that it will work . Took me quite some time to discover that as i am no computer expert by any means. Having said that, previously i had downloaded codec packages and something about aac. None did any good. This rocks, i listen to a lot of internet radio and a number of them have dropped flash player and getting wmp to work had been a nightmare. So many thanks for this great solution to another problem that Micro-Hell will not even address. Peace- Out

    openplsinwmp came in a zip file. I unpacked it, and didn’t find anything that looks like an executable, and even the files in the “doc” folder were in a format windows didn’t recognize. I’m not stupid. you said it would open effortlessly. It didn’t. This a rabbit hole I don’t want to go down.
