Seesu is a small software for various browsers that combines the vast music library and database with mp3 libraries on VKontakte and Soundcloud.

At its core, Seesu is a music player with integrated mp3 download capabilities. It is available as a widget for the Opera web browser and Apple dashboard, as well as an extension and app for Chrome.

A Firefox extension must have existed at one point or the other, as it is still linked on the project homepage. The Mozilla page however returns a page not found error.

The functionality of all versions of the app is similar: I'm using the Opera widget to explain the program's functionality.

When you start Seesu you see the following screen pop up.


You get a search form on top that you use to find bands, artists or songs. Below that are recommendations and loved tracks which are only displayed if you link your account to Seesu.

This is followed by a section that highlights what other Seesu users are currently listening to as well as country specific playlists and tags.

Depending on your selection you are either taken directly to the music player where you can play the selected song, an artists or band overview page where all albums and songs are listed on, or a category or group page listing multiple bands and artists.

Here you stumble upon the integration of Vkontakte for the first time, as the program recommends to log in to or to find better music files.

The vast music library of Vkontakte is used by Seesu Music once you link the account to the app. While it is recommended it is not necessary to login at all. You can use the core program features as an anonymous user or guest as well. You may however notice that several of the songs are cut at the 30 second mark. If you link the accounts you are more likely to find full songs.

The music player loads the next song in line automatically. One advantage over's radio feature is that you can play all songs of an individual artist as opposed to playing some songs of the artist and lots of songs from similar artists.

Mp3 downloads are only available if the full song is being played in the player. All download links point to Soundcloud for guest users. If you log into Vkontakte you may get download links from Vkontakte servers as well which increases the number of songs significantly.

The music player displays artist and song information taken from and videos which are embedded directly in the interface. The videos use YouTube as the provider.

Videos can often be used to play the full song if only the first 30 seconds are offered in the music player. Both the music player and video player stop playing if you click play anywhere on that page.

Individual song pages display tags, similar artists and albums

    Why not make use of the mplayer.conf?

    Huh, I have never even seen this “font cache” pane; videos play at once for me, using VLC & XP SP3.

    1. Martin said on August 1, 2010 at 3:39 pm

      Mike, in theory this should have only been displayed once to you, at the very first video that you played with VLC. The time this window is displayed depends largely on the number of fonts in your font directory.

        huh, I lucked out for a change?? Amazing!!
        Apparently VLC keeps this info through version updates, but I didn’t see this message after a fresh OS install about 8 weeks ago, & a new VLC.

      Great tip, thanks a lot Kishore.

    @Kishore, I’ll try your tips, but does this mean it will no longer show subtitles either?
    I do use subtitles, but the fontcache dialog box pops up (almost) everytime I play a file.

    Could this be related to the fonts I have installed? Or if I add/remove fonts to my system?

    I’ll try to do a fresh install also, if your tips does no work. I’ll post back here later…

    @ Javier, The trick i posted will show up subtitles too. If not,

  7. Kishore said on August 15, 2010 at 12:39 pm

    @ Javier, The trick i posted will show up subtitles too. If not,Dont worry, VLC is currently sorting out this issue and the next version will be out soon.

    No probs @ Martin !! Its my pleasure

    Try running LC with administrator privileges. That seemed to fix it for me

    I am using SMplayer 0.8.6 (64-bit) (Portable Edition) on Windows 7 x64. Even with the -nofontconfig parameter in place SMplayer still scans the fonts. Also, I have enabled normal subtitles and it is still scanning fonts before playing a video. Also, it does this every time the player opens a video after a system restart (only the fist video played).

    Does that mean that only instrumental versions of songs will be available for non-paying users?
