SpiralFrog is about creating a complete music experience, and offering the latest in Microsoft technology ensures that the site is as easy to use as possible
NEW YORK (PRWEB) July 1, 2008
The system now seamlessly upgrades Windows XP users to Windows Media Player 11 and makes it even easier to download music from the SpiralFrog site. The updated Windows Media Player includes enhanced search and media management technologies, a visually driven user interface, and optimized support for portable music players. Both digital tracks and music videos from SpiralFrog require at least Windows Media Player 10 to play.
"SpiralFrog is about creating a complete music experience, and offering the latest in Microsoft technology ensures that the site is as easy to use as possible," said Joe Mohen, chairman of SpiralFrog.
The update requires no action on the part of existing members or first time users. The SpiralFrog download manager automatically determines if a user's PC needs the upgrade and then seamlessly downloads it.
SpiralFrog, which launched last September, has rapidly become an alternative to illegal peer-to-peer piracy sites with more than 6 million monthly unique visitors. SpiralFrog licenses digitized tracks from both major and independent labels and underlying composition rights directly from music owners. Major brand advertising on the site covers the costs for users, who can download an unlimited amount of songs and videos for free.
