Here’s an example of how it works with a simple search for one of my favorite songs these days, “Jai Ho” from “Slumdog Millionaire”. Here is a portion of the fizy search results . A list of songs and videos matching the search term is displayed along with the length of the song.
Click on any link and the song starts playing.
If you click the Watch Video button then the music video player appears
Click the Share button to share the video with anyone via email or many of the most popular services: Twitter, Friendfeed, MySpace, Facebook, etc. etc.
That’s it, folks. Bada bing, bada boom. Search, play, share. Now, there are other music search engines such as Skreemr and Plorf but they only find mp3’s and not music videos. Then there’s Muziic which does find music videos from YouTube but it’s a standalone desktop application which means you have to install it on every computer you use. Fizy is all web-based and online ready to go.
Perhaps a few more Bells or whistles?
However, with all this praise for its simplicity, I still would love to see a few more bells and whistles added in order to enhance an already enjoyable service. For example, being able to add our favorite songs to a playlist that we could share would make it similar to the popular mixtape service that’s no longer in existence.
Also needed is the ability to access our address book of friends to share things with. For example, we should be able to access our plaxo or gmail address books to pick and choose any contact we want.
In any event, even if fizy sticks to its plane Jane style, I’ll be a happy camper for a long time to come.
