Playing the sharing

One of my favourite free music site is 3hive, although these days I rarely get a chance to download much stuff. The problem is I have to download something before I know whether it floats my boat, so to speak. Even with broadband that’s a few seconds per song, which soon adds up.

Not any more. If you’re a user of the greasy monkey for Firefox, you’re in luck. Just download this GreaseMonkey script and you’ll get a little Flash player below each download link. You can preview each track before you download with a mere click of the mouse. The Flash player was written by Jeroen Wijering and he’s kindly giving it away free. In this version of the 3hive player the Flash file is run from my website, but you can easily amend the script to run the file from somewhere else.

Happy listening!
