I have a Xbox Music pass and would like to use the new Xbox Music web site while using ubuntu, but Firefox and a few other browsers I have tried don't work properly for playback. The site seems to work fine for all other functions, but playing music. Does anyone else have this issue? Or does anyone know what the issue could be, and have a possible fix? Thanks! :D
So i decided to give Xbox Music a try, and played a song in my collection. Then moved to another song and a commercial started playing. Huh? Searching revealed others with this problem, but i didn't see any answers.
Yes, i know Xbox Music plays commercials when streaming free music that you don't own, but this is mp3 music i own, on my hard drive, in my collection.
Xbox Music will be available for iOS and Android today, as Microsoft furthers its bid to take on streaming music services like Spotify. Xbox Music is the first entertainment service from the Microsoft to launch on iOS and Android, and follows its Web version, which now offers free streaming to all browsers.
Microsoft will soon become the next player to enter the streaming music business, with a service that will see it competing against the likes of Spotify and Rdio. Its new Xbox Music service will soon become available on the Xbox Live service, as well as on Windows 8 tablets and PCs and Windows Phone mobile devices over the coming weeks.
It looks like Microsoft's 32-month reign as the number one console in the U.S. has come to an end thanks to a little help from GTA V. Bundled consoles helped Sony finally outsell the Xbox 360, breaking an almost 3 year winning streak.
Interestingly, on the hardware side, Sony's PS3 finally managed to break Microsoft's long-running Xbox 360 streak.
