    Smile Awesome, amazing, incredible indie rock comp inside!

    Okay, so a lot of you will be very familiar with most of the songs here but hey, it's a good listen with nice flow and all you have to do is click your mouse a few times. Actually I made it for a friend who says she has a difficult time finding new music she likes. Sure, I could have just sent her a CD-R but I wanted to try the ysi thingy. It's twenty tracks at a CD-R friendly length of 79:49 and in wma lossless format so if you wanted to create an audio CD copy it should sound identical to a normal .wav sourced disc. Mac users, sorry, but aren't you used to being left in the dark anyway?

    It's 493MB and will be up until 3/1 (or 25 downloads). I'm not going to test it myself just in case there are twentyfive people who want to snag it yikes, I hope it works now.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks, Slosher...

    Hey, I resemble that remark!

    Anyway, Mac users can download and listen using the free Windows Media Player. I can't figure out a way to convert and burn (for free anyway) to an audio CD however. Maybe someone else knows how to convert FROM .wma to something else on a mac. Nice way to share a comp! Would it kill you to use a universal format? FLAC?

    Listening in progress...

    Gee, it took about an hour to download, and I'm on high speed. What's up with that?

    Files are being moved to my iPod as I type. Thanks Sloshy!

    Did you make a CD out of it first. AFAIK iTunes doesn't know what wma lossless is.

    My Roku Soundbridges work great with WMP10. To get them to speak FLAC I need third party software like Slim Server or TVersity and I don't like the interface with either of those. I guess I could have used Apple lossless but not everyone wants Quicktime on their PC.

    Jim, cool. I'll have to check out that plug in. Thanks.

    Not yet, but the original files are still on my hard drive. I'm leaving on vacation on Sunday. By tranferring it to my iPod I can take it with me and listen to it on the plane.

    Your comp has also acted as a reminder that I should throw some Wilco on my iPod before we leave. Thanks.

    The wma plugin didn't work as well as the flac. The flac is seemless and the wma seemed to take forever to burn. I just finally had to leave, but it's ready now!

    My download went very fast, about 15 minutes.

    Tracklist would be *****in'

    thanks again,
    jc

    But how does that prevent you from posting FLAC files to Yousendit? I can play WMA files on the computer but to hear it on the big rig I'd have to download dbPoweramp or whatever it's called and convert WMA to WAV and....and.....WAAAAAAHHHHH!!!

    Convert it to an audio CD with Windows Media Player and then listen to it on the big rig. Shouldn't take more than five minutes.

    Whatta bunch of whiners. Sheesh!

    Oh man, I'm hosed anyway. It won't let me throw the link into my download manager that I use because I'm on dial up. Local bastiches won't put in another DSL repeater down the alley for one guy (me) that's a couple hundred feet too far.

    I think I'll protest by walking across the creek and lying down naked in front of my city councilman's house.

    I'll let ya know how it turns out...

    Way cool Slosh, but why did I go over 80 minutes...

    and have to do an overburn when you claim it's only 79:49? I got 80:12, so whatever. It worked flawlessly and was pretty quick with my high-speed cable access. This is so much cooler than mailing a comp, but you need to create a nice cover with all the tracks and e-mail it to us to complete the task at hand.

    Did you set up your preferences for no pause between tracks?

    I dunno.

    Why would I want to listen on Windows Media Player? I burned it to CD. I see the track names but no bands associated with it.

    The service around here is really starting to blow. (emoticon missing!)

    Well, If you had a wireless music player like my Roku M1000 and M500 you would want to use WMP. I get the track names, artists, and album title info on the Rokus' displays.

    In my bedroom I have what I believe may be the very first CD player with CD-Text support (a Sony circa 1997). It will also only display the song title. It does tell you the artist but only for the whole CD, not for individual tracks. My friend has a newer Yamaha CD player that gives you artist info for individual tracks.

    Nero and CD Text Manager and HACP all give you the complete CD-Text info as well.

    Took me 32 minutes to download...yup, it was a big file.
    Only scanned the first 3 seconds of all the songs to see if they worked...no problems.

    SLOSH RULES!!!

    This YSI thing has some serious possibilities...wonder how long until the record companies put an end to a really great idea.

    It can be any kind of file so I think it's not going to be shut down any time soon but I'm sure the record companies and movie studios are none too pleased with it.

    I'm just glad it finally worked. I had to upload it three times before it took.

    you didn't mention that in your instructions. I will try to forgive you for not being clear, but only if you send that custom cover I suggested in my response.
