Discuz, the online service that allows users to buy and download digital music, has added a new feature to its services: A disc version of a CD.
It’s a little-known feature that will allow users to download a disc, flip it over to their computer and start playing.
“We think that we are the most popular digital music distribution platform on the planet, and we want to be there to take advantage of this,” said Ben MacGregor, Discuz’ chief technology officer.
“What we’re doing is we’re providing a service to the public that lets people buy digital music and stream it for free.
The new disc option can be found on the service’s disc page, which has an interface similar to the one on a CD or DVD player. “
So if you are a user of a DVD-based service and you want to download your digital music from Discuz and put it on a disc or something, we’ve got you covered.”
The new disc option can be found on the service’s disc page, which has an interface similar to the one on a CD or DVD player.
It also features an “All Downloads” tab that shows the total number of discs currently in use by users.
Users can select a disc type from a menu that includes “Playback Disc,” “Recording Disc,” and “Track List.”
Discuz will notify users if a disc has been purchased, and they’ll be prompted to log into their computer to begin downloading it.
MacGregion said Discuz plans to add more features over time to improve its service.
“The goal is to make it easy for the average user to find and download their music,” he said.
“And we think it will be a fantastic service for anyone who wants to do digital distribution.”
