Earjam has launched an internet music player (IMP) that can burn most musicformats onto audio CDs.
The Earjam IMP automatically converts CD tracks, Windows Media files and MP3 to Red Book, the standard format for regular CDs. Earjam is one of several vendors selling such a tool.
"In just one click you can burn your entire music collection, regardless of format, to your portable music device or burn a CD you can play in your car," said an Earjam spokesman.
The player preserves restrictions built into file formats such as Liquid Audio or Windows Media that dictate how and where a track can be copied. The Earjam software has an Audiobot tool that searches the internet automatically for specific artists or styles of music, then allows the search results to be downloaded to the user's hard drive.
Earjam has partnerships with Emusic and Myplay to provide free tracks and online storage space.
A final version of the free Earjam IMP will be ready by the middle of March from the company's website.
