Ffffoundtape – Find And Share Mp3 Files

If you’re a fan of the old Muxtape, MixWit, FavTape, or 8tracks services, then you’re going to love ffffoundtape.



Ffffoundtape at its core is a music bookmarking service. Using their bookmarklet, you can bookmark mp3 files to the service for later listening or sharing. In order to bookmark a song, the page has to contain a visible link to the mp3 file you’re trying to bookmark. So there’s no going over to Imeem or MySpace and scooping up every song available. This could make using Ffffoundtape a bit difficult, especially for commercial song streaming. On the other hand, ffffoundtape goes the extra mile to provide a link to where an MP3 was found on the web if available.

The Interface

Ffffoundtape’s interface is plain jane and simple. However, it works to the service’s advantage very nicely. The pop-up player that songs can alternatively play a host of songs in is reminiscent of those MySpace playlist players plastered all over people’s profiles. I’m not a huge fan of this pop-up player, but it gets the job done. Streaming quality was great and the majority of the songs available from the site were working links.  Ffffoundtape is a no-go for mobile music heads. You won’t be able to use this site on your iPhone.




Signing up for the service was quick, easy, and a tad hilarious. Overall,  Ffffoundtape is a quick and simple replacement to Muxtape and others that have ceased to exist before it. Hopefully ffffoundtape won’t meet the same fate. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing how this service develops over the next few months.

Any suggestions on how it can improve?
