AOL Radio 4.0

At the end of December we launched a new AOL Radio. Instead of being based on a pop up window that contains a flash player, the new radio is all javascript and HTML. In fact the player is such an improvement both usability wise as well as from a data mining point of view, I may now be able to add support to AIM MusicLink finally. If you navigate to http://radioplayer.aol.com, and have Firebug installed, you will be able to view how you can capture current playing song data like artist, title, and album via DIV tags. This opens up the possibility to writing a song logger for AOL Radio, just like the one I wrote for the Mac last year. You can view the code I wrote for the AOL Radio on Mac here.

  1. I’m glad the performance is much snappier, but the design itself is still lacking.

    Why do my presets have numbers instead of station names?

    Why don’t XM stations have the channel IDs?

    Where’s my skins?
