MP3Rocket program wasn’t ordered to cease its operations by the court, but still decided to use a better technology which will let its users to search for, download, convert, and transfer content to whatever device they want. MP3Rocket calls it “time-shifting,” which makes media more convenient.
It was just a few days ago that U.S. District Judge ordered LimeWire to stop all its operations, and now it looks like MP3Rocket, a similar Gnutella-based P2P application, also decided to leave that network, though at its own will. MP3Rocket admitted that it has some better technology to use, which will employ the YouTube music selection for delivering faster downloads. Unlike LimeWire, the application will merely take advantage of material already provided by Google, thus complicating any copyright violation efforts by the entertainment industry.
MP3Rocket said it has been studying new YouTube downloading technology over last few months. It believes it would allow to replace the outdated Gnutella functionality with faster searches and downloads. The announcements made by the company reveal that they are going to be converting from a Gnutella application to basically time-shifting instrument able to download and convert media. Although there’re lots of Firefox add-ons providing similar features, they are not user-friendly, so the market really lacks a good tool.
MP3Rocket offers its customers an option to preview and download YouTube videos and transfer them to Apple devices at one click. Besides, it promises the users to be able to capture any video, Internet broadcast and stream, Hulu, and many more. Moreover, it offers users to shift YouTube videos to other formats than MP3s.
New groundbreaking technology is supposed to be that of a “time-shifting” type, which would make it protected from the copyright violation claims other P2P application face. The company particularly highlights the Betamax case, where the US Supreme Court decided that noncommercial time-shifting is considered as non-infringing uses.
The only downside to the new MP3Rocket service would be MP3 bitrate quality limited to 192 KB/s. However, this only applies to its free version, while the pro offers 320 KB/s, and costs either $1.64 a month or $34.44 for lifetime access.
