|Minneapolis, MN (July 14,
J. River MEDIA CENTER 10.0 software, a multimedia
application for organizing and playing digital music, photo and
video files, has added internal support for music services to enable
the purchase of downloads and physical CDs. The PC based software
integrates Audiolunchbox.com, a popular music download site, and
CDBaby.com, a service that allows music fans to sample and purchase
physical CDs. Both services offer an extensive catalog of
independent artists. |
“Media Center includes all the tools needed for digital music fans
to build and maintain their own collections. Now we have made it
possible for them to access superior music services without having
to leave the application,” explained Nikolay Sokratov, CTO at J.
River. “Users can enjoy content from a selection of services without
being locked into subscriptions or having to jump between multiple
media players to organize and play their music.”
Morgan Harris, CEO of Audio Lunchbox, said, "We're excited to be
joining forces with J. River and feel that there is great synergy
between the J. River Media Center and Audio Lunchbox. The interface
is easy to use and supports Ogg Vorbis, which will be an added
benefit to our users."
Derek Sivers, President of CD Baby, said, "I've always loved Media
Center. Like CD Baby, it tries harder to meet the needs of its
users. People who really care about music appreciate the amazing
features inside of it, and these same music fans are the ones that
love CD Baby's special catalog of the best new independent music.
We're proud to be affiliated with it."
The opt-in music services are presented in a non-intrusive way, and
provide a seamless experience for the Media Center user by playing
sample streams through MC, and placing purchased downloads
automatically into the Media Library. More services are scheduled
