CloudPlay is a lightweight music player that lets you search and make playlists out of free music on the web.

Type a few keywords and instantly see free music appear from your local iTunes library, YouTube, SoundCloud, exfm,, Jamendo, BandSoup, and thousands of online radio stations. Double-click on a song to start playing the results, or add your favorite songs to a playlist.

Playlists can contain music from different sources, so you can mix and match a few videos from YouTube, some songs from iTunes, and a few from, for example.

Too lazy to make your own playlists? Click on the playlists menu to explore curated playlists and popular tracks on (everything from Chill Out and Progressive House to Hip-Hop and Trance), YouTube, Jamendo,, and other sites.

NOTE: iTunes Match is not supported at this time due to a technical restriction. Music from iTunes Match will not be shown in CloudPlay, but all other tracks will be playable.

    "CloudPlay makes it really simple to add lots of music from lots of different places to a single playlist. On top of that, you get videos, too, which was so cool, I had to turn CloudPlay off to get any work done."

    "CloudPlay sits in the menu bar and plays while you work. It's simple, but works really well."


    "I listen to music from a number of places while I'm working. It's kind of a pain switching between [sources]. Until now. Meet CloudPlay."
