Unlike other programs where the users share files with each other, MP3jam use Youtube videos to nourish their songs database. Extracting the audio from the video, and allowing users to download it.
This type of software is convenient if you have a large collection of Music CDs and do not want to convert them to MP3. With this software we will be able to find a song, artist or album, and download the songs in an organized way.
The quality of the songs is good. The usual download quality is 256 Kbps, being able to reach a quality of 320 kbps.
The program's interface is very clean and simple. The main screen consists of a search engine and the list of songs found. If we are looking for an artist, it will display the artist's albums along with the album's songs. In this way we can quickly download an entire album.
We can also use this program as a music player. So we just need to find the artist we want to listen and press the “play” button of the first song. The song will be played, and when finished, the player will continue with the next song.
Not only we can search by artist or album, but also we can search for generic keywords like dubstep, pop, rock, etc.
The program also allows us to browse different musical styles as: classical, electronic, hip-hop, indie, jazz, metal, pop, r&b and rock. When e click on any of these musical styles, it will appear a list of artists and we listen their music.
Another way to navigate through different musical styles is to use the categories offered by the program. Among others, the categories we can explore are: relax, summer, vintage, sport, night driving, partying, etc. Once we clicked on the some of the categories, we have access to a playlist composed of songs from various artists.
Browsing for a musical genre and by category, both are available in the main screen of the program, which is the the first screen that appears once we open the program. To return to the main screen, we must select the tab “Search & amp; Downloads” and we must remove the text box search term.
