There’s no shortage of places to find music video on the web: YouTube, Vimeo, AOL and a host of other sites. The problem is that this music video is on YouTube, Vimeo, AOL and a host of other sites.
What if there was one place you could go to find all the Internet’s music videos in one place? What if that place allowed searching for video by artist, source and even date? And what if it offered additional artist-specific material like a compendum of news involving that performer?
Yesterday, I got a demonstration of an absolutely freakin’ remarkable site called RockPeaks. The tag line is “Music Video Done Right”–and believe me, they’ve got it right.
Coded in HMTL5, it works across all devices. Video is aggregated from dozens of sources and then presented in a clear and easy-to-use way. Users earn points for making recommenations and writing reviews.
As a research tool, it’s amazing. As something for the music fan–jeezus, you could be here a while. Give RockPeaks a look. Registration is free and it’s a snap to navigate.
But again, don’t blame me if the day disappears on you. I started poking around at 9:30 last night and the next thing I knew, it was midnight.
