background kexp.org streaming audio player with now playing info and likes.

Image from store KEXP Streaming Player (Listener Developed)
Description from store I love listening to kexp.org while I work and always have a chrome browser window open. I hated having to open the kexp.org website when I heard an amazing song playing that I liked. Now you can listen to the kexp.org live steam in the background and within 1 click of any chrome window discover what's playing! If you want to remember the song to download or stream later on your favorite service, just click the like button. The extension uses local storage to store all your likes. Album and artist art is displayed using last.fm. Features: ▪ Background audio player that works across tabs and windows ▪ Live update of now playing song & show info from kexp.org ▪ Like a song you hear on kexp.org so you can remember that amazing song you just heard last week • Share liked songs to your last.fm profile (loves) • Scrobble liked songs to your last.fm profile (listens) • Send liked songs to your Spotify playlist ▪ Album or artist art from last.fm ▪ Supports popout mode (great for multi-monitor setups) 2.0 Update - 12/03/2014 ▪ Visual refresh with retina support ▪ Switched to new AAC+ Stream ▪ Connect to your Spotify account to share likes to a playlist! ▪ Lots of small bug-fixes This extension is powered by BSD/MIT licensed open source software and is not associated or endorsed by kexp.org.

  • (2016-07-28) Nathan Stankowski: The best.
  • (2016-04-26) Neil Morrissette: Honestly way better than KEXP's own streaming player. ESPECIALLY the ability to automatically add liked tracks to a Spotify playlist.
  • (2015-11-25) John LaFoe: Fantastic! I love all the option: Scrobbling to Last, adding songs to Spotify, making requests... all from within the small window. Killer Karl's the man!

  • (2014-07-20) Chromium radio 90.3 FM Seattle radio browser extension WOW get the new Chromium OS (unofficial) browser audio plugin free RIGHT IN YOUR HANDS NOW -- install it and get possibly the best college radio streaming worldwide from the local fresh PNW netizens at U of W Seattle WA USA 90.3 FM. Again, wow native Chromebook OS HQ-audio!) -- the future of cloud stereo high fidelity is here, and stupid simple stable mobile playable too, the open source HTML5 way.
  • (2014-07-08) Keifer Hofacker: Awesome.
  • (2014-06-09) Great extension! I am trying to get away from using itunes and use Google Play, which unfortunately doesn't have the ability to add stations to stream.
  • (2014-05-29) Bořek Hlivů: The only solution I've found both to listen to KEXP and scrobbling tracks to my last.fm profile. Awesome!
  • (2014-05-02) Max Turner: This is brilliant. It works great and I love the last.fm integration. Thank you so much Karl!

  • (2013-12-12) Dave Zack: Very nice tool - been dying for something like this. Big thanks to Karl for doing this - and for KEXP for the great tunes!
  • (2013-09-16) Ray Wilburn: Stopped working. Still shows the scrobbles on last.fm, but no sound. Update KEXP did away with the flash player.
  • (2013-08-21) This is gold. So good. Now I don't have to open a separate tab, find the streaming file in my Downloads folder and open Windows media player just to listen to music anymore.
  • (2013-08-13) Eliška Elišková: I would love this extension, it looks perfect, despite the fact that I can hear no sound coming from it. Even if it scrobbles to my last.fm account, I can hear nothing! :D also I am not really sure, how to stop it, it keeps scrobbling and scrobbling. any idea? any nice soul with advice pls?
  • (2013-06-19) Paul Wade: if you like music this is were its at!!!
  • (2013-06-04) Love the app! And the ability to scrobble!
  • (2013-05-11) Jon Dejeeas: great app. PROBLEM! recently I been having issues, it will not stream. fix it guys, porfavor!
  • (2013-02-08) Morgan Van Wely: I listen to KEXP all day, and I have Chrome running all day. This Chrome plugin is like chocolate and peanut butter, but better!
  • (2012-10-30) Mario Tarabbia: Really well made! This plugin is work of art.
  • (2012-07-23) Mauricio C.: Best extension ever! Thanx However, I would be a 5 stars extension if it scrobbles all listened songs, and not only those liked, and with a playlist view (with the latest tracks played), so if you missed to get the name or like a song, you still have a chance.

    I was so excited to find this extension! I tried it out for a bit, but it kept stopping unexpectedly and the real time playlist wasn't loading. The interface looks great, I'm hope I can use it soon.
