Editors' review

We always like to start our software reviews with a brief description of what a given program is or does, but in the case of Ejukebox, we're not entirely sure. It's true that it's a media player, and that it seems to integrate the user's music library with music videos from YouTube. But the program's design is so confusing that it's hard to really get a coherent idea of what's going on.

Ejukebox's interface has a certain sleekness to it, leading the user to think at first glance that it may be well made. But the program quickly yields a confusing assortment of buttons and sliders, and navigation is anything but intuitive. The first time we ran the program it asked us if we wanted to scan our computer for audio files; we agreed, but it took us a while to figure out what became of them after that. As far as we can tell, the program then creates a playlist that contains your songs as well as YouTube videos? We think? There's a menu that lists musical artists alphabetically, although we have no idea where these musicians came from; they weren't in our library. Users can click on each musician to view YouTube videos, and can also do a search for musical acts that aren't listed. Aggravating the program's confusing design was the fact that it has no Help file; there's a link to an online forum, but no actual instructions. Overall, we found Ejukebox way too confusing to be of much use.

Ejukebox has a 15-day trial period. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We do not recommend this program.

    "Or Maybe Not"

    April 18, 2010   |   By stellar711

    Version: EJukebox 5.05

    Pros

    Don't see many other packages out like this

    Cons

    Clunky application

    Summary

    Honestly, the developers are asking a premium for this application but it's a fairly clunky app. I mean, the settings windows don't even look 'standard'..it's a strange custom menu system that I haven't seen on other applications. The manual is buried away at the forums and people seem thanksful for it, even though it looks fairly odd too... I installed this on win7 and it didn't even install an 'uninstall' in the start menu, or even show up in my add/remove programs (programs and settings). Finally tracked the uninstall down in the root of the install directory after my system was continuously hanging after putting it in 'memory mode'. I love the idea of this, but I'm not sure it's deserving of any more praise than it got in this review...

    "Editor should take another look"

    February 20, 2010   |   By audiosoft

    Version: EJukebox 5.05

    Pros

    If you import a large music collection and give it a few days then the interface really shines. Large album collections are what EJukebox is designed for. HD Youtube with the pre-buffer for the next video is nice...but is just an added feature.

    Cons

    RE: Editor
    If you need a manual to figure out the advanced features there is one available for download at audiosoft.net/forum
    Also to get rid of the extra artists just change the select box at the top of the artist list to ALL instead of ALL +Demo.

    Summary

    The EJukebox interface combines the audio visual power of Windows Media Player, Direct Show, Winamp, Shoutcast Internet Radio, HD Youtube videos and Internet Explorer for Pop-up free browsing

    "If you have a music collection, you'll love this!"

    August 02, 2007   |   By Hackencrash

    Version: eJukebox 4.8

    Pros

    This software has it all - an interface for parties, a cover art auto download thingy, a CD ripper that actually gets the MP3 tags right, a front-end to Winamp so you can use Milkdrop - the best visualisation ever, a thingy so that your IPAQ can drive it and show album covers - hey I've run out of space in this review...

    Cons

    Sometimes, if you post something on the forum - it may take a few hours before you get a response.

    "Tried them all - still the best"

    August 02, 2007

    Version: eJukebox 4.8

    Pros

    My entire CD collection makes up about 18,000 songs so I needed a program that can easily handle large collections, but also be user-friendly. I've been using eJukebox for several years now, and after a couple of years, bought a second copy for a jukebox machine I built.

    In the past, I've tried out other applications similar to eJukebox. I have tested easily over 50 jukebox apps and have never found anything to replace it.

    Cons

    I have no complaints, but if I did, I would just post them to the forum and they would be handled quickly. Support is A+++
