Developer description

Qbox indexes the entire music inventories of the major social networking sites, including MySpace, YouTube and Bebo, making it easy for users to search, organize, share, and listen to the entire streamable catalog of free and legally available online music – all through a single, easy-to-use point of access, the Qplayer. Qplayer works essentially as an online remote control for all available music in various social networks, offering seamless and continuous playback of music from various social sites.
Social networking sites have become a leading destination for music discovery and consumption. Today, more than 50 million unique users visit MySpace and Bebo to search for and listen to music every month. In turn, forward-looking artists, both indie and big act, have embraced the Web as a crucial channel through which they cultivate and engage their fans. For example, more than 3 million artists have made available over 20 million songs for free streaming on various social networking sites.
Unlike the file-based music download paradigm, in the ‘always-connected’ world of social network music, communication among artists and fans is the essence of the user’s experience. At Qbox, we enable such interaction between fans and musicians by facilitating the discovery and streaming of all the music available across the social Web, using innovative technologies such as our Emotional Link music recommendation engine, which leverages the musician friend lists on MySpace, and Link-2-Music, which converts any webpage into a streaming music service.
It’s never been easier to listen to your favorite music and discover new music on multiple social networks. Welcome to Qbox, the social network music destination.
