Coming off a recent $625,000 seed investment from Lars Langusch of Holzbrink Venures, Berlin-based music tech startup Musicplayr has just ended its closed beta period. The free, cross-platform service allows users to create an online music profile by collecting music links from YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo, Dailymotion and music blogs, allowing them to organize and play songs from multiple Internet sources as a sharable playlist.

"This is the first open version of Musicplayr," says Stefan Vosskötter, founder and CEO. "We will continue to respond to user feedback, and are currently working on two major features. Firstly, Musicplayr will become a self-organizing service that uses the latest audio fingerprint technology."
This song recognition technology provides the user with track and artist details.
"Secondly," Vosskötter adds, "the implementation of this technology will make it possible to launch our iPhone app that can identify a song and store it directly onto a user’s music profile."
Musicplayr currently users tag tracks (indie, folk), but the company is planning a Gracenote integration for music identification. A paid version will likely be added.
