QUOTE (musikomaniak @ May 3 2014, 08:34) *
With Youtube track manager : "Search for similar artist / Open artist and similar artists" search results are quite good. Best than with "same artist station" of Youtube Radio.
My idiot question of the day: why do you call it "Youtube RADIO"?
For me radio is ...a radio station. I'm confused in my playlists of web/stream radios and youtube radios.


Well your problem is only that you don't like menu.
Both script works in same way, i think that now with latest: 'Youtube Track Manager' , there are no differences for 'similar artist' and 'genre'.
You can rename in menu "same artist station" with "Search for similar artist" or whatever you like, on line: 592,593.
I can also add ex.> ''Open Madona and similar artist..'' , as it is done in 'YT Track Manager'.

Only difference is that Wilb script has Album Manager, which can also be added(but i will not do this, because Wilb already did that).


Question: Why do you call it "Youtube Radio"?
Well, because it is Radio, not something else.
It's based on ''Last.fm Youtube Radio'' , and it works in same way.
So this should be called: 'last.fm Radio' or 'Youtube Radio'.
You can rename this, with your own name, - call it whatever you like..

@mire777
Yeah, I know all about the removal of api services, especially the full biography from lastfm. But at least for now the api's work with YouTube Track Manager and there is a choice of two. There is always the option of using html if they cease to work.

Echonest is now owned by Spotify. Following the aquisition by Spotify, Napster & Rdio removed their support. So I guess much of the echonest data now no doubt comes from Spotify users. Echonest say nothing is going to change with regard to availability of the api but we will have to wait and see.

The html method is not immune from failing either. I get biographies and album reviews from allmusic by an html method, and every time allmusic change the format of the web page the script breaks and has to be changed... But for now we have a choice of a number of working methods for you tube track management. I am happy for YouTube Track Manager to be on the first post of the page if the mods allow the change. To make YouTube Track Manager compatible with wsh panel mod 1.4.2 I think the changes are much the same as before - although there are more AppendTo menu items that would need to be changed to the old style - but YouTube Track Manager is still in beta and so there may be bug fixes to come.

@Mire777, I made search tests with the same artist, with different results. Your script is on my installed foobar and WilB's script is on a portable version.

Anyway, there are not many people posting here.

About radio...my confusion could be because I don't use last.fm. Its'not a problem smile.gif

I could rename, but I'll have to remember to rename again everytime you update smile.gif

Deezer, Echonest, Jango, last.fm and Rhapsody all seem to use radio
Pandora, Rdio and Slacker seem to call them stations
Spotify seems to use artist radio

So I don't currently have anything better to suggest since use of the terms radio or station are pretty standard ways used to describe artist and similar artist and genre type music playback by a number of well-known sources. Even though it is a little confusing compared with traditional radio. So I guess "radio" now has a new meaning...

Yes i agree..
All this (Deezer, Echonest, Jango, Pandora) are ''radio'', but your own personal radio, where you can chose what to listen by: genre,artist or some way of recommendation.
Today, you have your personal 'radio', and this is future in real meaning word - 'radio'.

Seems that YouTube also trying to become 'Radio'. It have biography, similar artist, recommendation metod, genre, playlists, lyrics.. etc..
All goes in that way that youtube become radio..
In a few years, they probably will.

So great is that we already now have 'Youtube Radio' in foobar.
Any other name for this - will be inapropriate.

"Seems that YouTube also trying to become 'Radio'"...... It seems its almost here already. Last.fm stopped there normal radio streaming service a few days ago in the face of competition. There new radio streaming player is in beta and plays music from youtube. Quote from last.fm: "On 26 March 2014, Last.fm announced they would be discontinuing their streaming radio service on 28 April. In a statement, the site said the decision was made in order to "focus on improving scrobbling and recommendations"." Further quote from another source: "Last.fm said it will continue to deliver personalized music to its listeners ... The difference is the music will not come from its own servers. Instead, music will be piped in from YouTube and VEVO onto the new player.The company, owned by CBS Interactive, struck a similar deal late January to plug into Spotify as a source. These two arrangements allow Last.fm to avoid paying music licensing fees while still delivering streaming music to its users."

For me, simple lady not very intelligent, radio means web radio /streaming radio. I choose radios for classical music, jazz, pop or news.
About Youtube Radio, for me it would be easier to call it Youtube music.
Today, I'm trying to have a new skin and make test on a foobar portable version where I have only the foo_Youtube component. It is more easy, no need for panels, buttons and scripts to find artists songs, concerts... biggrin.gif
Surely I miss important things.

Well with foo_youtube only, you cant find similar artist, you cant have recommendation what to listen.. So i prefer Youtube Radio. It works perfect. My playlist is always updated with new top artist and songs.. No need to go on web, and search what is new in music industry, or to type and search which new artist or songs exists. My script will inform me if something new appear... This is better way, i have all in one...
