The video giant is the second largest search engine for the Web, a practically endless treasure trove for TV clips of all types, and unsurprisingly, heaven for music video promoters and fans. A cool site called YouTify (YouTube + Spotify) launched last month to tap this resource, letting you build your own playlists, search for your own music, and pretty much make the Web your jukebox. Even if you don’t want to watch the videos, the music alone is great.
Every link plays the music video in the bottom left corner of your browser (like iTunes does in its music player) and has the option to expand to your full screen. You can also right-click and go to the YouTube video directly. While that’s fun, what’s even better is when you search for your favorite music. If a band has ever made a music video worth playing, it’s on YouTube. You can create and save playlists, and search playlists across the network. The great part of that is instead of recreating the playlists for each artist, it’s possible they already exist somewhere. Searching an artist name can turn up dozens of playlists, each with dozens of videos already there.
