Your Music on the Wii, PS3, Windows Mobile and More!



My vision for MP3tunes is that your music library will play at every electronic location in your life. You won't have to remember to lug your music around -- instead your Music Locker will automatically be wherever you are. That's a big vision and MP3tunes can't do this alone so we sponsored a $10,000 contest asking developers to help us get your music to every device or service. Below we're announcing the first half of the contest winners. While the developers win the cash prizes, music fans win too because now you have more places than ever to listen to your MP3tunes Music Locker.

MP3tunes on the Wii



Product: WiiTunes
Developer
: Rodney Powers

MP3tunes for Eclipse



Eclipse Plugin
Developer:
Aldo Bongio
Description: Coders often get the best work done when motivated by the favorite tunes. For those who use the Java development environment Eclipse they now have a plug-in to browse and listen to their music to maximize their productivity.
Setup Instructions

Thanks to our creative developer community you can play your music on more machines and more places than any locker system in the world. Sony has a music store called Connect but your purchases won't play on the Sony Playstation consoles. Microsoft sells songs in their Zune store which won't work with their own Windows Mobile devices. But your MP3tunes Music Locker works on those devices and potentially every device in the world. This is the power of using a standard audio format (MP3) and publishing an open API which we invite every developer to use. I hope you will try out some of these great new ways to listen to your music from your Locker.
