Yahoo! LAUNCHcast - Watch Music Videos Online

One of the coolest website that I’ve discovered would have to be one called ‘LaunchCast’ which has been bought to us by Yahoo, powered by CBS Radio – seemingly, out of nowhere came this excellent website which allows you to favorite Yahoo! and CBS Radio stations pick from hundreds of music videos, MP3’s and artist interviews no matter where you are all completely free of charge and for a change this is accessible completely legally.

As I really don’t know where to start with this website, we are looking at the music videos section which immediately presents you with a long list of artists or you can search and quickly find the artist you’re looking for. Once you’ve found you’re desired artist, the site is a list of music videos that it has in its comprehensive database for you to view at completely free of charge. To fully take advantage of this area of the site it would be advisable to have broadband connection installed as on such as each video takes around 4 seconds to load up then plays at high quality and completely stammer free until the end; something you can not be achieved with a 56k modem.

This is all very fine if you know that you want to watch and have nothing else to do than sit down and watch a music video but what if your concentration is needed for something else and you just would like a bit of background music? This is where the LaunchCast online radio station comes in – You simply decide what kind of music you like listening to and Yahoo customizes a station specifically for you which then sits in the background playing away while you continue working.

By specifying musical genres that appeal to you, the station can be sure that you are not up to 30 minutes worth of Gareth Gates “Spirit in the Sky’ per day that a certain local station would impose on you. I think we all know what station I'm talking about.

On the whole, the songs are fresh, varied and the interruptions for ads are few and far between and even at this point in writing the article I’ve already heard three songs that I’ve never heard before and that were absolutely fantastic – It really is a great way to discover new music. If a track does come on that I really can’t stand then just click on ‘next’ and the station will skip it and to avoid having to do this too often you will be asked to rate each track accordingly so that the radio station can get a feel for what music you like and what doesn’t.

Other areas of the site include the artist information page where you can check out news, photos and interviews as well as downloading selections of their music on to your hard disk for future listening when you’re disconnected from the Internet. Launch not supports only established artists but also does its bit for supporting emerging artists by another to offer every month on the website so that you can view their music videos, listen to their singles and having a look into where they’ve come from and what has influenced their entry in to the music business all from the one side.

Finally, it is very unusual that I am so impressed by a site so if you do one thing today, make that you check out Launch specially if you have a broadband connection. Although areas of the site would work well on a standard internet connection, I think that waiting for everything to loads up would become a slightly boring process. Much in the same way that the quality of Sky has pushed the majority of the people towards getting digital TV, if demanding content like this keeps appearing on the Internet then it’s only a matter of time before most people are pushed towards installing Broadband in their homes for fear of being left behind.
