Listen, MetaFilter, 'tis the season and all that, so get yourself over to MetaFilter Music (you know, that subsite you never go to) and check out the absolutely wonderful little Hawaiian Christmas ditty that your fellow Mefier chococat
posted, OK? It's called Mele Kalikimaka
and it's big fun and just all kindsa damn good and full of holiday cheer and slippery guitars.

Can we move the music player to the top of Mefimusic posts that exploit the "more inside" function. This has bothered me for years really. Recent feedback has confirmed that this confuses the heck out of people. [more inside]

This is a honkin' big pony but bear with me.
It would be REALLY nice if we could make music posts using embedded soundcloud links, much as we can embed YouTube and Vimeo links. [more inside]

Some of the music players on mefi music have a strange grey bit where the line goes when play is clicked and don't play when I click play. [more inside]

Let's hear it for MetaFilter Music
: 5,000+ posts and going strong. I love all of you, from the fine musicians to the devoted commenters and playlisters, to the mods who coded and managed it, to the thousands* of record label execs who've found their next pop star lurking in the shadows here. Here's to another 5,000 posts, then another 5,000, then after that we can re-evaluate. Sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who's ever contributed, commented, made a playlist, listened to a tune, or even planned to and hasn't gotten around to it.
See within for some fun MeFi Music links, and a little bit of a primer on how to get your feet wet in our warm little musical community!

From this distance it's hard to tell whether it's a pony or a stallion: making AAC files uploadable to MeFiMusic? [more inside]

A while back, I tried to set my Flashgot Firefox plug-in to download all of the files with the address music.metafilter.com/music/*.mp3
, only to find that FlashGot doesn't like wildcards, only ranges (i.e. [a-z], [1...1000], etc.). But I really would like to have a quick easy way to suck all of this music onto my iPod. Dear AskMeTa, [more inside]

So, you have to be a member to download songs from Mefi Music? IS that really fair?

I'm having a problem posting a music to MeFi music. It's an MP3, under 3 MB. I'm getting this error message after a few minutes:
The MIME type of the uploaded file "audio/mpg" was not accepted by the server. Only files of type "audio/mpeg, audio/x-mpeg, audio/mpeg3, audio/x-mp3" can be uploaded. Verify that you are uploading a file of the appropriate type.

Inspired by a comment in the thread for chococat's very excellent song "In The Rain" I was wondering, for those of us with access to campus radio stations, is there a way to broadcast some of the tunes from MeFi Music? Is it basically a matter of contacting the original poster and asking them for permission?

Is anything ever going to happen again with metafilter music
? There are a lot of musicians on this site, and I'm pretty sure that a lot of people are unaware of it.
Also, when is the metafilter projects site going to launch?

It's here! MetaFilter Music
I've uploaded most of the files people have sent me (I'll be adding more all day today). Lots of great stuff already. Electronica, rock, folk, it's all there. It uses the Andromeda
streaming/download server which lets you download songs, stream folders/songs, and lets you make playlists on the fly.
Oh, I also added a new MetaTalk category
to discuss music.metafilter.com-related stuff here.
