Jamendo’s new look

Jamendo has a new look, if you happen to recall the old one. Their blog describes the changes better than I can. A little more orange, a little more playback control up front, and a few improvements that I prefer — namely, the ability to download straight from HTTP instead of via torrent.

I do prefer torrents when I can use them, but I still can’t use them at home, so I’m a bit frustrated by that sometimes. Straight downloads are a huge boost for me (especially since I get phenomenal speeds just from HTTP). It looks like all my downloads are mp3 files right now; I’d prefer ogg just for peace of mind, but I’m not a purist. I’ll take what I can get. ;)

Green smilie for Jamendo! :mrgreen:

    I still like blue one better. The new one is a little bit harder on the eyes, and it lacks some of the consistancy that the other site. (Mainly I miss the side bar on the left when looking at stuff in a person’s profile.) And I can’t seem to find the “new album” notifications. (http://blue.jamendo.com/en/news/insert_username_here)

    On the other hand, the “Your starred albums” and “Jamendo player” pages are a big improvement.

    Maybe I’m missing something obvious, but I’m new to Jamendo, and when I click the download link for an album, the popup endlessly reloads, requeing me, never giving me a download link whatsoever. Help?

    I am not a real fan of the new color scheme, but aside from that the new design does have a more streamlined feel to it. I did notice that it does appear to be lacking some previous features though.. (e.g., I didn’t see the recommended albums list and http://ogg.jamendo.com/en/ just shows the main page now.)

    The availability of HTTP downloads is definitely a big plus even if they are only offering MP3s at the moment. That said.. I will be sticking to torrents until ogg is available via HTTP as well.

    @James: I’ve seen that too; I’m not sure why it happens, but I’m 99 percent sure it’s a bug of some sort. Maybe later I can drop a note to the Jamendo crew (you could do that too), mentioning that perpetual loop effect. It’s kind of comical really, since it sometimes pushes me back in the download queue. :roll:

    Hi ;)

    I’m one of the Jamendo developers, so I just feed back on this !

    We made a lot, of changes, a LOT I said :) a lot of new functionalities, new possibilities… download HTTP and the player are our major changements as well as our major issues :)

    We’re working a lot to fix all stuffs that are strange like the continuous reload of the popup when in download queue, or the non working player for some people …

    So just be patient, we’re downloading also and this popup is our main fix target :)

    See ya :)
