What happens when you crossbreed Last.FM with a custom YouTube search and the power of continuous VHX playback? You get the Music Video Genome - a phenomenal way to watch (or listen to) a ridiculous plethora of music with next to no effort. It’s incredible that Casey knocked this out in just a few days and even more pleasing how entertaining the results are.

"Pandora for Music Videos of the Day: The Music Video Genome, created by Casey Pugh during the 24-hour hackday.tv event, plays a personalized selection of music videos based on the artist you enter.

It’s similar to Pandora’s Music Genome Project, but it runs on Youtube, Last.fm and video sharing service VHX.

Pugh says one of the challenges of the project was filtering out “music videos” on YouTube that are actually just static images. The Genome includes a “not a music video” button you can click to flag any that made it through.”

TRY the Music Video Genome

FILED UNDER: MUSIC VIDEO GENOME

The Music Video Genome fills the video void left by MTV ages ago and improves upon it by offering up videos customized to your tastes, a la Pandora streaming radio

Created by developer Casey Pugh using the brand-new API from VHX alongside data from Last.FM, the browser-based program is elegant, easy on the eyes and a lot of fun. I love that the videos fill the entire browser window, play with a minimum of watermarks, without an obtrusive control panel and centers around all of the artists that I like the most. 

This is amazing.
