    Use Seeqpod to download music, no app install (except Operamini)

    Could not find anything on this so I thought you might be interested.

    And since I overdid some linking back to my own site today, I'll put the instructions here out of goodwill. :)

    Everyone should use this knowledge legally.

    Install Opera Mini browser. Does not work in IE for me, I used Opera mini 3, not tested on version 4.

    Navigate to www.seeqpod.com/m

    Use the site to locate the music you are interested in or you could set up a playlist on your desktop and navigate to that.

    Select the song desired.

    It will download to your Q

    anything that is mp3 so i'm sure its not all legal, most is not. the main site works on the idea that the song plays in the browser so you don't posess the file.

    its a user's own personal ethics issue at this point like any p2p filesharing.

    No clue about whether it's legal or not, but out of curiousity I tried it. With PIE you are able to download any song...from hundreds...right to your SD.

    Nice find when I clicked on a song with Opera Mine it downloaded in PIE so I tried that and worked fine for me. Nice site streams on the PC and downloads on the mobile version.
    Got a few songs today and don't seem to have to register to download. Slow on 1x, of course, but fine with EVDO or when Activesynced to my PC and using it's connection.

    I can't navigate on PIE but you are right in that the download happens through PIE.

    Anyway, all good.

    Try a couple of the search fields and hit your center button to get to enter the data and search might work. It took a little playing with to get it but I finally was able to find some artists. I first scrolled through favorite artists but there are more available through search.

    yea..pretty cool! If you go to http://www.seeqpod.com/ on your pc and sign up, you can make and save multiple playlists. Then on your Q goto http://www.seeqpod.com/m and lookup/download your playlists under your username. Your username is the first part of your email address you gave.

    When I hit play on on song on the Q it just asks if I want to download. The only problem I had is it filled up my device memory and I had to keep moving the songs to my card. Probably a way around it in PIE's options or something. After each song downloads it starts playing in WMP.

    ps. maybe too much coffee
