Thanks gentlemen.

I must just have been unlucky on that particular day then, especially in the previewing of several files I wanted to buy.

Situation was as follows:

1: Some music files would preview quickly, so I could make an informed selection about the music I was trying to buy ( Album names and tracks are not always the same in the US as they are in the UK ), so listening before buying is pretty imperative.

2: On certain tracks ( I can't recall which ones, but I'm fairly sure I recall trying to find Sonic Reducer, by the Dead Boys ), the preview would not work at all, no sound, no loading of track into audio preview and so...no sale.

I run ADSL at a fairly constant 5 1/2 MBPS download rate, through a dedicated line, with five or six individual computers connected via router to a 54g wireless net. It may have been a bad day for Tiscali, but I can't retrospectively measure that, obviously.

The non loading preview ( audio preview...sounds wrong, but you know what I mean...pre-audition maybe? ) seemed to work fine if I was trying to listen to more mainstream music, Katy Perry, that sort of thing, but as soon as I tried listening to other, less commonly listened to music, such as the DB record noted above, the pre-audition seemed to be non functional.

Which is why I thought legal P2P, with fewer hosts equating to slower stream or non connection in the pre-audition.

Thanks for the clarification.

On a slightly different note, I've acquired a few tracks now, and one of the things I find vaguely annoying is the way the mix maker page is laid out, with two scrolling boxes positioned one above the other on the screen.

I use a variety of computer monitors at home, ranging from a 15.4" laptop to a twin 24" set up on my gaming rig.

It is, due to the way the page is laid out, impossible to see both the mix being created and the tracks contained in one's library AT THE SAME TIME.

This makes it difficult for a blind old bat like me to know what it is that I have already added to the mix as I am scrolling through the library, as I am having to constantly scroll up and down and flick between two boxes to view progress.

Would it not be better to position the two boxes side by side, so that users can see both things at once?

I rather think it would make the user experience far more friendly than it currently stands.

Your thoughts?

MM

Whilst I'm here sitting in my bath robe, skipping Mass with a cup of particularly good coffee and smoking a cigarette, I was wondering if it would be possible for the music store to add tracks from some of the following artists:

The Jam

Prince Buster

The Skatalites ( in fact ANYTHING from the Trojan or Top Deck catalogs would be good, guys, some of us like Ska, you know !!! )

I haven't found any Bauhaus either, I think one track from Siouxsie and the Banshees, one track from the Beat ( English Beat in the US ), no Pulp, no Television, no Richard Hell and the Voidoids.....no Smiths for God's sake!

No Thirteenth Floor Elevators, no Love, the list goes on and on.

Not that I have anything against Katy Perry ( I DID ask Santa to deliver her, lightly oiled and wrapped in a red bow, for my main Christmas present, but no such luck....I'd been SUCH a good girl too.... ), but please fellas.... there are some really serious omissions here.

Thank you in advance.

MM

Quote from the music catalog search:

Notice to our Music users.
IMVU is adding new artists and tracks every day! If you don't see what you're looking for, make sure to check back later.


Maybe it should be changed to "If you see something you want buy it NOW". Where did the Nickelback go? And the Jason Mraz? And the Secondhand Serenade? I could go on but you get the idea. Please bring back our music.

I'm unable to connect to the music store to search for music, purchase from my wishlist, nor can I edit my playlists. I've reset all my caches, rebooted, and made sure all my updates were current. Is there anything I'm missing on my part to correct the problem since others are having no issues that I've talked to.

thread I posted in the bug report forum.

And I KNOW this has been mentioned SO many times....but for crying out loud...Get somebody to verify the integrity of the music tracks...I'm getting more and more disenfranchised with the whole thing because so many of the tracks are either missing portions of the beginning...or cutting out WAY early at the end. And I mean by almost a full minute of the song.

If you can't at least do that...then get associated with another provider...Maybe Yahoo music, or Rhapsody. At least you know when you purchase the music from their sites, you're getting a full version of the song.

Can you say bend over and enjoy the ride??? It is all thats been happening!!! They have changed it so much to get all the money and credits for themselves and then you get a nice little piece of nothing!!! And to top it off they delete messages like this one to hide any complaints!!! Soon there will be only the music a few from imvu like that tries to influence the music we hear. And anything that works well in the older versions will never play again and everyone who has derived music will be out all the money and credits they invested in imvu to have something they liked at the beginning but are slowly being driven away to invest their money in something that works better . So enjoy the time while you can!!!

Hey Para of course your post will post will dissapear as its a complaining post and as everyone knows if you don't "toe the party line" you are stamped on and silenced.
I don't like the music store either and I won't update to later versions because I want what I already have to play for me.

(This was also posted in another area)

Alright. Last week, I wishlisted a few items from the music store. I go back yesterday to buy them, and found them gone. Entire -albums- have disappeared. What gives?

I have songs that I can play that I bought, but the albums are no longer there or the track is no longer available to resell. Example:

Metallica - I have 'Wherever I May Roam' from the Metallica (Black) Album, but now it's not there in the music store.
Nickelback - I have 'Something In Your Mouth' and 'Figured You Out', and now there's -no- Nickelback in the music store catalogue.
Disturbed - I had tracks from the Indestructible album wishlisted, and now there are only 5 songs available in the music store.

What's the deal?

You are part of what is called .......you can buy music but only what we say you can..... in other words communism or censorship!! you chose to upgrade to their wishes and that is the price you pay. try going back to 401 and get it from other devs,, but remember to try it before you buy it and it will work better for you
