Lala Playlist Widget

October 21, 2008

In a couple of separate recent posts about web music services, I noted that I like Lala, and that the Grooveshark widget uses the Clearspring platform to work on the widget-wary

Well, it turns out that Lala has a widget that uses Clearspring, including the still-not-documented clearspring_widget shortcode. Here’s a playlist with the first few tracks I added to my Lala collection.

    I am also an Andrew W, so good to meet you!

    I’m a Grooveshark employee and am interested– which widget do you prefer? Lala or Grooveshark?

    I’m not looking for bias, I’m just trying to see how we can improve.

    My fellow Andrew W. I deliberately refrained from stating a preference, but since you ask…
    I have to say that I prefer the Lala widget. I like the look of it better (although I didn’t spend much time with the Grooveshark options for color, etc.).
    More important, the Lala widget works, whereas the Grooveshark widget keeps on losing track of the song I created it to play!

  4. […] Web services with javascript widgets can make those widgets available to bloggers. For example, the music service Lala has done this. […]

    I posted a playlist in both lala and imeem to compare them.

    I think Imeem still has the best platform, and allows more streams, but cool to try both side by side

    Hey there… I know I’m late to the party here, but I’d really like to use the LaLa widget on my wordpress blog, but I’m not sure I understand how to do so based on this post. Can you help?

    Chris, thanks for the comments and for the link to your blog. Sorry I didn’t get to this earlier today.

  11. […] my Reno-inspired playlist. I was going to embed the playlist in this post, as I’ve done with other Lala playlists in other posts, but for technical reasons, I won’t do so […]
