Muziic Adds VEVO Videos Without As Many Ads

(UPDATED) VEVO and YouTube may soon close a loophole in their shared API which Muziic used  to grab their videos. "VEVO does not authorize, condone or otherwise endorse, in any way whatsoever, the actions of Muziic which involve our licensed music videos or registered trademarks." the company said in a statement.

Online music hub Muziic, created by teenager David Nelson & his father Mark, has added video content from VEVO. As it does with YouTube, Muziic works to improve on VEVO's limitations. For example, unlike on, there are no video "pre-roll" advertisements.

Aside from providing solutions to some of  the technical issues associated with, Muziic adds it own playlist management, search, internet radio, "MuziicMix" crossfading, and social networking features.
While the website itself will not be available globally until 2010, Muziic streams much of VEVO's content globally now.

Performing a search for "Lady Gaga" on Muziic returns several songs and albums as well as content from VEVO that can be streamed anywhere in the world. The new VEVO tab on returns artist channels sorted by popularity or alphabetical order.

  1. How long until he either gets a C&D, or Vevo fixes the holes? It will be interesting to watch…

  2. It might be interesting to know how big a role “teenager David Nelson” played in building the site. The important thing to take away from this is that this sort of thing is EASY. Shawn Fanning was not a genius, just a college kid. With the exceptions of DVD Jon and Bram Cohen (BitTorrent), I don’t think any of the developers of file sharing platforms & other tools for infringement were geniuses.
    The personal computer, the Internet and the Web are simply a collection of tools for making and transmitting copies, and assembling the tinkertoys is like A-B-C.
    When it was steam engine time, the steam engine got invented. It is now copying time. The ideas are inherent in the computer and network technology which glues the world together.
