Jamming with the Yahoo! Music APIs

Are you a computer nerd? Do you like music?

I’m quite pleased to report that the hard working web-services team here at Yahoo! Music unleashed a very powerful new Music API upon the music-nerd community this week. This is the same API we used to build the Facebook Music Videos app, reported here some months ago, as well as much of the content at the Yahoo! Music website.

I’ve written a introductory tutorial for the Yahoo! Developer Network, which includes sample code for a bare-bones video browser, similar to the Facebook app, to help get you started.

This API will give outside developers access to Yahoo!’s enormous music database: you can present lists of popular artists, their discographies, similar artists, display stills from their videos and even play the music videos themselves.

Check it out!
