LET'S PLAY MUZIIC!
"It’s really the first 100% free, legal method for listening to digital music," said the 15-year-old CTO. It comes pre-loaded with millions of tracks from YouTube.
Muziic Player is a new computer application which allows users to search for songs from a pre-filled music library containing millions of tracks. The free and legal music service is developed by best friends Mark Nelson and David Nelson, who happen to be father and son.
Muziic resembles a traditional media player, a program that plays music from a user’s collection of songs. While typical media players - such as Winamp or Windows Media Player - work only with a user's own music downloaded previously into the player’s media library, Muziic comes “pre-loaded” with millions of tracks from YouTube - undeniably the world’s largest database of music.
When users open the Muziic Player application, they will see (among other things) a search box where text can be entered. By simply typing the name of a song into Muziic Player, hundreds, often thousands of results can be played or added to a playlist with a single click.
“It’s really the first 100% free, legal method for listening to digital music,” said 15-year-old David Nelson, Muziic CTO / Co-Founder. “Typically, free music services are not completely legal; on the other hand, legal music services are not usually free. My dad and I set out to create Muziic, the music service that is both free and legal.”
YouTube holds contracts with Universal Music Group, Sony BMG and EMI. Through the usage of Google’s YouTube Content ID Recognition System, artists are paid royalties based on the number of plays their song receives. "Because of YouTube's contracts with the record labels, satisfaction can be reached for our listeners and the artists themselves," stated David.
The fact that Muziic embraces the music community is a major key to its success. "Every track someone listens to in the player has been uploaded by another YouTube user,” Mark Nelson, Muziic CEO / Co-Founder, said.
