    Something the iPhone is missing is internet music streaming. A web application called SeeqPod addresses lets you listen to music files publicly available on the internet. Point your iPhone to and start clickin'.

    I just fail to see the need to stream music on iPhone. If you can't be satisfied with the music you have on your iPhone from iTunes, you um should examine your life. Ha, plus I'd bet that many iPhone users still have iPods (as I do), so if you are really in need of that much music you could carry both. With that said, I guess that is kinda cool that they made an iPhone interface. I just won't be using it.

    Actual streaming of radio though would be sweet. I listen to podcasts that also stream live and if I could listen to that, that would be cool.

    That's exactly what I was going to post about. I listen to several streaming radio stations, and if they making it possible for the iPhone to join that revolution, then I'd be so happy. I don't have an iPhone yet, but when I do I'd like to have this functionality.

    A great app!

    Wow, what a wonderful app, with such a nice interface, and surprisingly fast when loading all of that data!

    On a side note, has anyone seen that new iPhone dictionary web app @ ? I've never heard of them, but they do have an extremely clean interface as well!

    Pretty useful for home use, and songs can be downloaded to your computer fine...

    I can see legal issues on the horizon.

    yeah... they seem to sidestep this issue, as they are a search engine essentially. You can find the same files on Google... just not in a nice iPhone interface.

    Actually, they probably are on good ground here... as isps/search engines aren't generally held responsible for these things... but they also usually aren't focusing the search so specifically.

    That's actually the most salient point. --Namely, whether they are specifically and willfully ENCOURAGING piracy. This is similar to and Both of these websites acquired, yet no longer offer public services (WebJay as of the end of last month).
    If SeekPod is going out of their way to list artists like "John Legend" or "Madonna", and indexing everything in categories, etc... sounds like its an open and shut case, and a far cry from them making an effort to have users NOT link to unauthorized songs. I really think the DMCA take-down notice approach only goes SO far, and if something is willfull, I'd imagine they'd go from cease-and-desist to lawsuit real quick.

    Just my thought.

    Say a friend or someone tells you about a new song or band and you want to check it out. Wah-lah. Not something I would use to go in and listen to music often on.

    Maybe we can copy the whole Code for the /seeqpod/iphone onto our own server and use it that way.. just a thought...? if someone can get the source it'll be perfect!!

    Sounds a little more complicated than a single script. Looks like they're actively cataloging and categorizing from the Internet at large. Either they're actively compiling metadata from other search engines, and/or doing it all themselves (finding the open .mp3 listings, etc). Who knows, but its certainly not simple and NOT done in realt-time (they have a large cumulative index).

    Stream Music to your Mobile Phone

    Cool app indeed!

    Not a search engine, but you can also try (registration to create an account is free), upload legally acquired mp3 files in Music album (or Videos or Pictures) and stream them to any rtsp compatible operator / mobile phone. When used on a mobile phone, identify yourself with login/pass provided at registration, then go to music, click on icon, it will ask for a 3gp encoding once. (in low quality at this time) and then stream it to your mobile.

    dont' know if this can work on iPhone...

    The site is in french but easy to understand (Charger stands for Upload).

    Still in beta, enhancements and English version coming soon.

    why are you guys complaining about edge speeds and this service?? i just got back in kansas city from a roadtrip to chicago for a wedding this weekend and had this bad boy plugged into my girlfriend's car. most of the way through illinois i only had to wait a minute or two for the song to buffer and in missouri it was nearly instantaneous...only 10-15 seconds before the song was ready to go. my girlfriend was amazed that she could request any song she wanted on the fly in the middle of nowhere. it worked beautifully, we were so amazed. i love it. my experience with edge has been much better then expected. wifi at home also works well with this but drains the battery quicker. songs load in 1-2 seconds on wifi. amazing!!

    I'd heard about Seeqpod on a radio tech show. I checked it out on my Mac-mini. I listened to some three Manilows and five Beatles tunes. Several of the Beatles songs ended abruptly mid-song. The selection wasn't particularly extensive for Manilow, too.

    When I linked via this article, I noticed it said the site was specifically for iPhone users. Ah hah! I am guessing Seeqpod is preferring to work for iPhone users and will catch up later with computer users. Curious differentiation.
