For when your favorite music video isn't long enough.
The MobiusTube lets you create a never-ending and ever-changing version of just
about any Youtube music video. To get started Pick a video from the gallery,
or Add your own video from Youtube.
What is this? - For when your favorite music video just isn't long enough. This web app lets you
upload a favorite music video and will then generate a never-ending and ever-changing version of the video. It's the
The Infinite Jukebox for video.
It never stops? - That's right. It will play forever.
How does it work? - We use the Echo
Nest analyzer to break the video's soundtrck into beats. We play the video beat by beat, but at every beat there's a chance
that we will jump to a different part of video that happens to sound very similar to the current beat. For beat similarity
we look at pitch, timbre, loudness, duration and the position of the beat within a bar. There's a nifty visualization
that shows all the possible transitions that can occur at any beat.
Are there any ways to control the song? Yes - here are some keys:
[space] - Start and stop playing the song
[left arrow] - Decrement the current play velocity by one
[right arrow] - Increment the current play velocity by one
[Down arrow] - Sets the current play velocity to zero
[control] - freeze on the current beat
[shift] - bounce between the current beat and all of the similar sounding beats. These are the branch points.
< > ? - controls the beat period
'h' - Bring it on home - toggles infinite mode off/on.
What do the colored blocks represent? Each block represents a beat in the song. The colors are related
to the timbre of the music for that beat.
How come this doesn't work in my browser? The app requires the web audio APIs
which are currently best supported in Chrome and Safari. You can read more details about this issue in this blog post:
the Infinite Jukebox work only in Chrome and Safari.. Support for web audio in Firefox is coming soon.
How come the The MobiusTube stops when I put the tab in the background?
The MobiusTune wants your full attention! Also,
processing that is required for the The MobiusTube.
How come I can't upload my Youtube video? Some videos have encryption or regional restrictions that make it impossible for The MobiusTube
analyze the video.
I have an awesome infinite video that I'd like everyone to hear. What do I do? You can tweet it with the tag
Can you remove my copyrighted video from this?. Sure, if you are the copyright holder of a song and for some reason
want it removed send me an email at paul @ echonest.com
