Space Jammer is a crawler which shuffles through the artist-pages of MySpace and plays the music it finds there.
You can create favorite-lists and individual preferences for your music-search.
If you want to get more information about an artist or if you want to buy his record, you can vistit him at MySpace or start a search at Amazon, Musicload Google, or Wikipedia - directly out of Space Jammer
Space Jammer is bilingual, german an english. Depending on the systemlanguage it loads at programstart the fitting textpromts.
Space Jammer is freeware which means, it costs you nothing. It also means that you are allowed to copy or send it for private use to your friends. People or companies who want to offer Space Jammer on a compact disc or as download have to ask me before doing this. In the actual release state its not allowed to use Space Jammer in any commercial context.
Technically its not a player anyway. Technically its a browser. A very small one and one which can only browse the urls of MySpace's flashplayers.
Space Jammer itself doesn't load or cache the music it plays. If the flashplayers are doing this, Space Jammer has no influence on this cause they are products of MySpace. Sometimes they're producing errors when loading their music. Please, don't tell me. I can't do anything against this. The best than is to start Space Jammer again.
Next Artist After:
The flashplayers of the bands are a kind of "black boxes" for the Space Jammer. It doesn't knows anything about what the player is actually doing. Wether it is playing, which song it is playing, the length of the song - nothing! So the only way to change automatically to the next artist is to select a playtime, after which Space Jammer is skipping to the next band in the playlist.
Selecting a playlist
Space Jammer has two kinds of playlists. The MySpace playlist which contains the artists it found in the pages of MySpace Music and the favorite list, which contains the artists of a loaded favorite playlist. You can switch between this two lists when ever you like.
Choose the Browser for the Space Jammer
With this option you can choose the browser for the Space Jammer.
A fileselectbox will open. Search for the browser.exe (f.e C:/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe). Pressing 'OK' will safe the selected browser as the default browser for the Space Jammer.
The MySpace flashplayer is streaming its audiodata. That means, he is making a temporary download into the 'Temporary Internet Folder' and playing the musicfiles from there. After playing is done the player is not erasing the temporary files(!), so that the internet-cache is growing more and more.
With the "Erase"-option, Space Jammer deletes all audiofiles in the internet-cache.
With the "Move"-option you can move the audiofiles from the internet-cache into a different folder.
Generate New Playlist:
The heart of Space Jammer is the playlist. It includes the names of the artists it will play. To generate a playlist, you have to select one or more countrie(s) and one or more genre(s). You can also save the countries or genres you have choosen as individual settings.
At programstart Space Jammer is loading the last selections as startsettings. Generating a playlist could take some time, depending on the number of genres and countries. Whilst Space Jammer is generating the first playlist in the background, he is playing the startband.
You can copy a favorite list from "/Favorites/Presets" into the "/Favorites" folder and rename it "startband". Then Space Jammer takes the startband out of this list.
