Rokker.fm is a new music streaming service powered by all the audio content on YouTube.Type in your search terms and click on the song you’re looking for. It’ll play in an iTunes-like interface while the source video from YouTube plays in the bottom-left corner.
When it works well, it works really well — we were able to find plenty of great-sounding album versions of offbeat and obscure music.
When it misses, it misses big. Remember that it pulls all its content from YouTube. A few songs on one album we searched for featured a real estate tour and a prank video.
When the Rokker team can implement a fix to ensure that only the appropriate album versions of songs will appear in search results, we’ll be instant fans.
