Editors' Review


Whether you need a dose of funny baby videos or want to check out that depressing cell phone commercial, YouTube usually has it all. This includes thousands of songs. YouTube Music Player, a Mozilla Firefox add-on, allows you to search the YouTube music video database and create playlists using them. This add-on is great for listening to a YouTube playlist while you are away from your computer. However, don't expect smooth sailing when you are surfing the Web or doing any other computer work.

After restarting Firefox, a red play button will appear in the right-hand corner of your Web browser's status bar. To create a playlist, go to the new "YouTube Player" tab in the browser menu and select "search." A selection of songs will appear at the left-hand side of your browser. Panning over a song will allow you to preview the video before you select it for your playlist. When you have selected your songs, click the red play button and the song's respective music video will pop up. You have the option of watching it in full-screen, small-screen, or hiding it in your tool bar. The pop-up video will include forward and back buttons, as well as repeat and shuffle buttons to navigate through your playlist. Forward and back buttons will also appear in your status bar while the playlist is streaming.

YouTube Music Player is a great idea; creating a song/video playlist is much more useful than having to constantly click through YouTube archives. Unfortunately, that is all this add-on is, an idea. Though the songs play perfectly, the video playback is slow and frustrating to watch. Not only is the video slow, Firefox itself becomes substantially slower than when the playlist is paused.

Enjoy listening to YouTube-based music video playlists, just don't try watching them.

"What a pain in the A$$!"

It's nice - when you are finally able to create a playlist - to be able to listen to a string of music off of youtube.


To search for music and create a playlist is waaay too time consuming.


This program is clumsily made, without much thought to the user. Each song has to be searched individually, then you have to start over losing all the ground work you made on your first search. They need to make the search window stay open until you are finished creating a playlist. If that isn't frustrating enough, MOST of the time a song is selected, it gives you the WRONG SONG! Then you START OVER - FROM THE BEGINNING. That's about as far as I could go with it before uninstalling. I'll stick with paying for Itunes for now. I guess I just don't have the patience for this ridiculous program.

Well, I was going to update my review with a positive spin by saying that it may be worth the trouble to create a playlist for the ability to play consecutive songs, but since they deleted the program from my computer (which is disconcerting in itself) because of my review I will stick to my original review and say it is DEFINITELY not worth the trouble, and now additionally concerning is the privacy aspect of the program.
