Today I've got something very special for you: Song previews!

 

If the uploader added a link to the song on Youtube you'll see a little Play icon next to the song title. Click it (give it a minute to load) and listen to the song right there on the search page!

 

We're still working out a few buffs with cached versions of files, so if the Play button seems too big, please just refresh the page and you should get one that fits. 

 

You know the deal with the tracker by now, I suppose. Please post any issues there. 

 

Enjoy!

Idea with preview are awesome, but can we play only audio instead video, can we? just thinking about that video is too much(too heavy)

I think this icon should be in its own column.


Take a look at my Workshop. You'll find which song I plan to create someday.

 

Please leave constructive feedback, it helps me creating better customs !

Please don't thanks with comment but with the button !

Actually, you shouldn't see the video at all. Did you refresh the page?

Hmm, looks like we're getting crowded a bit in terms of column spacing.

Suggest you reduce the amount of space around the stars on the first column and perhaps the download button padding.

Also, while doing that, suggest you also make the cell backgrounds clickable for all the columns, instead of just the text... effectively enlarging the buttons, while still taking up minimal space.

I agree. There's a lot going on with all the new features. I definitely recommend hiding some of the columns in the Search Settings. You can for example set your default order to Date added and hide that column. 

 

I will look into reducing column widths like you said. 

 

By enlarging the buttons, did you mean the filter links for artist, song, album etc.?

For enlarging buttons i meant the background of the cell behind the text. Right now you have to hover over the text directy, but if you hover over the white space around the text, it doesn't do anything but highlight the row. I think making that white space clickable would be better.
