Anyone use youtube to 'listen' to music

  1. titel self explanitory
  2. Not usually, if I'm online and want music (which is often) I use Pandora.
  3. I used to, then I discovered torrents :D
  4. As said above both Pandora and Last.FM are better for streaming music. But there was a short time where the only place to listen to Modest Mouse's then-unreleased track King Rat was to watch some shitty youtube video.
  5. I also torrent but sometimes just listening to a song on youtube can be more convenient.
  6. I like 2 keep my iTunes clean. Only Full Albums. If there is a song thats not on a released full album I just listen to it on Youtube.
  7. Yeah sometimes.

    I usually use it to find different songs from certain artists and then if I like it, read their page on wikipedia and see what their good albums were and dl a few.

    I guess I use it more for exploration than as a radio. :smoke:
  8. Ya, to show people tracks when your not home or their not home.
  9. Yes because sometimes its hard to find that certain song.

    Once I find it, I download it so I dont go back to youtube

  10. dude i do the same thing! I'm so neurotic about it, like I imagine it as my record collection, no single songs or albums missing cover art or anything like that.
  11. Only if i'm researching/discovering something new or the like. The audio quality is shit on youtube, so if I like what I hear I'll get a real copy of it or torrent it and then rock the fuck out. I think of youtube more as a little sampling rather than the real thing.
  12. Yeah. Unless I'm downloading music from torrents/etc that's all I've used for years. You even get a cute little music video to go along with it.:cool:
  13. Yeah, I have a program that converts youtube videos into mp3's. Really nifty, and works quickly.
  14. I would if every other search didn't include 100 live versions and 1000 shitty covers of the song I'm looking for.
  15. I do it every now and then (if I don't feel like downloading something), but I've been using project playlist for the past couple of years.
  16. I got one too. The quality is decent.
  17. if i listen to rock or something where quality really matters, i download it or play it on playlist, but usually youtube has a shitload of good rap thats hard to find

  18. Yeah I download them off youtube and put them on CD's. Can't even tell the difference between store bought and illegal.
  19. I use it to find new songs to get.
