MTV Puts "Vintage" Music Videos Online
"For all of you haters out there griping about how MTV doesn't play music videos anymore, here's something to calm the waters. Check out MTV's new website, MTVMusic.com -- our new online catalog that finally opens up MTV's massive music video archive.
While MTV.com has always been a source for the latest music videos, MTVMusic.com offers up a more in-depth library, including over 16,000 videos, 'Unplugged' performances and exclusive MTV concert footage. And if a video you’re looking for isn't there yet, check back regularly as more and more vids are added daily."
In addition to letting users reminisce about the salad days of their youth, the site also includes a social networking aspect as well, integrating MTV Networks' own Flux Media platform. Users can post comments on the video pages, rate videos, and add links to their favorite video pages on a variety of social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter.
As with other video sites, you can see how many times a video has been viewed. The current most-viewed video is the Dire Straits' Money For Nothing. Number five on the list is none other than Rick Asteley's Never Gonna Give You Up--which has inspired us to use MTVMusic.com as the latest means to Rickroll.
