Legally or illegally, most of the popular music videos end up on YouTube soon after its release (sometimes even before their official release). Tech Dreams has created a wonderful mashup of YouTube and Apple iTunes Top Songs.
This mashup utilises iTunes RSS feed to fetch the top 10 songs (for the current week) from iTunes and generates a playlist of YouTube videos of those songs. To make things even more fabulous, Tech Dream offers separate playlists for different countries. Currently supported countries are USA, UK, Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand and Sweden. Gopinath – the developer of this mashup also promises support for more countries (which are not covered by iTunes) soon. Support for Indian Music videos (Hindi, Tamil and Telegu) is on the cards.
Some of the songs have grainy videos, while few have only music but no video. However, the service works flawlessly in most of the cases. A majority of the videos are either HQ or HD. The other minor issue is that the layout breaks in Opera. On the whole, Tech Dreams Music aggregator is a simple yet brilliant service. It saves music aficionados the trouble of manually searching YouTube and allows them to enjoy the latest chartbusters for free.
