Music Search

Seeqpod is billed as 'playable search'. Interface is very simple, with a search entry box with 'search' and 'discover' buttons. You are also presented with a list of 'PodLists', which really means playlists. Here's the usual query set with the 'search' button pressed.

  • David Bowie Low.

  • David Bowie "Heroes".

  • David Bowie lodger.

  • Iggy Pop lust for life.

  • David Bowie the man who sold the world.

  • David Bowie hunky dory.

  • David Bowie Aladdin Sane.

  • David Bowie ziggy stardust.

Doesn't allow me to link to the searches, so you'll need to type them in yourself.

The search comes back with 'PodCrawler' (not clear what generated these), search (number of items) and Discoveries (number of items).

Search items include songs, video and playlists it appears to me. You can link and embed:

Playlists can be embeded as well:

Searching with song titles brings back better results e.g. 'Heroes' gives a better set than 'low'.

You can choose which sources you want to see on the search list (although it is not clear what all the options mean).

Discovery button seems to bring back anything.

I quite like the interface, its very useful and you can move around easily on it when search is complete.
