  • iLikeDisplaySong - displays/plays a single song
  • iLikeSongChooser - search and select a song
  • iLikeDisplayPlaylist - to display/play a playlist
The terms-of-use is refreshingly simple: We're starting with the hope that it simply breaks even. If it turns out to be profitable, we may find a way to share revenue with our best developers. If a few developers use the system a ton and it costs us too much to support them, we may ask them to help us cover the costs. But for now, the service is free, please use it and build cool stuff, and if you build something that's really popular, we're sure we can all make something good come of it.

The code for displaying a song is straightforward - just include some iLike javascript and away you go. For instance to play a song, use the code:

  iLikeDisplaySong({elId: "song1", songName: "roundabout", artistName: "yes"});
