Wow, Amazon MP3 just blew my mind! When their service started, I was pretty disappointed that they didn’t grandfather in all of my old MP3 purchases. Instead, from the day their cloud player went live and forward, it would store your music. Bummer for me, since I had spent hundreds of dollars on music on Amazon since they first started selling MP3’s. I didn’t lose any music though, I still had it stored on my own drives. Well, today they’ve finally included all of my previous MP3 purchases into my Amazon Cloud collection! I had just under 100 albums on my cloud drive before, and now, as Amazon continues to scan my old purchases, it is importing 1,936 previously-purchased albums! Wow. Luckily, NONE of these albums go against my GB storage limit, since they were purchased from Amazon! So now this gives me another streaming option in addition to Audiogalaxy and Subsonic.
Up until now, Audiogalaxy has been my preferred streamer. It’s completely free, streams much smoother than any of other option I’ve tried, and it even works great at work. Subsonic has the added benefit of downloading as standard MP3’s so I can use standard media players on my devices to play the music, but it doesn’t want to play at work. I’ll have to see how Cloud Player stacks up, now that I have all my music back on it.
