Jamendo is a music community where artists share their music with the rest of the community. Users can download and play the songs without having to pay money to do so.

The service has an index of more than 200000 tracks to chose from, and the social networking elements like tagging and reviewing make it easy to discover new and interesting music. Users who want to give back can support artists in numerous ways including donations, sharing or becoming a fan.

Jamendo Pro is not a service to make end users pay for extra services at Jamendo. It is a service for businesses, shops and projects to save big on performance rights fees. To be more precise: Jamendo does not charge any performance right fees and the prices to play Jamendo music in a project or location are considerably lower than those of performance rights organizations.

A Jamendo Pro store license for a store with 1001 sq. meters would produce yearly costs of 288€ while it would cost £495.50 in the United Kingdom when using conventional music licenses.

Jamendo has partnered up with several recognized brands such as Ducati, Yves Rocher, Skoda or tv channels like Arte or France 2.

original music from over 60 countries
- pop, jazz, lounge, electro, classical and more

a competitive offer:
- from 3 euros for music synchronization on a video
- from 96 euros a year for background music for a public place
- no fees to pay to performance rights organizations!
artists on Jamendo PRO are not members of any of these organizations

an acclaimed, simple and quick service:
- purchase online with our Jamendo PRO interface
- enjoy immediate use of the music
- delivery of an internationally recognized certificate guaranteeing you have paid all the rights to use the music

Jamendo Pro can be an interesting offer for businesses, shops and projects that would like to cut down on their music license costs.

You can play any song on the Jamendo website before you grab a license. This allows you to preview the offering, and find suitable songs for your projects.

Update: Jamendo Pro is now called Jamendo Licensing. Pricing starts at €4.99 per month for stores with less than 50m², and €19.99 per month for a store between 401m² and 1000m².

    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

    1. Martin Brinkmann said on December 1, 2011 at 1:43 am

      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.
