Most people these days have hundreds, if not thousands of songs stored in your computers. If this is your case, you you are starting to worry about the sheer size of your collection,or are experiencing problems finding tracks among all the clutter, then you need to get hold of a program like this one, called Yahoo! Music Jukebox. As the name may suggest to you, Yahoo! Music Jukebox combines audio track extraction, theme creation in RealAudio and MP3, and a high quality player. You can compress audio tracks directly to MP3 rapidly, without the need to create a WAV file in between.
In Yahoo! Music Jukebox you can subscribe to Yahoo!'s streaming service, create your own playlists, transfer music to portable devices and USB drives and rip CDs to various formats like WAV, MP3 and WMV. You can then burn tracks to new CDs.
But it doesn't stop there, because with Yahoo! Music Jukebox you can also use a number of plugins to add functionalities and features to the program, all of which are available from Yahoo's website. And if you're feeling adventurous you can even create your own plugins and skins!
