One of the killer features of Songbird is that when you view web pages with MP3s, it presents a very easy way for you to download the songs. I noticed on my last.fm home page that there were a few free MP3s available for download, so I decided to test this out.
I went to the Birdhouse because that seemed to be the way to type in an address to go to.
Then I put in the URL for last.fm and logged in. BAM! The interface changed to the following:
As you can see, all of the tracks listed as “free MP3” are now listed in the bottom pane with a “download” button after it. Then all I had to do was click on the download button. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
Step 1: Open Songbird
Step 2: Navigate to web page with links to MP3s
Step 3: Download them
By default the songs are downloaded to the My Music folder. I changed that to a “Songbird” folder so I could easily find them and put them into the folder structure I use “Artist->Album”.
Awesome job on that front! Many kudos to the Songbird Dev team.
