MTV Opens Its Video Vaults With MTVMusic.com
If there weren’t enough productivity-killers on the internet already, MTV has relaunched its music site, MTVMusic.com, which opens up MTV’s entire archive of music vids for public consumption. This means viewers now have access to some 16,000 music videos, ranging from "Buddy Holly” to "D.A.N.C.E.” to "November Rain” to more cheesy ’80s clips than you can ironically shake a leg to. Perhaps more importantly, it also finally puts a little music back in Music Television.

Along with all the music videos, MTVMusic offers up all the station’s unplugged performances, mini music docs, interviews and concert footage, plus shows like VH1 Storytellers. The old MTV site still exists, meaning you can continue to catch bits about The Hills and Cribs, but now you have the option to avoid all that and go straight to something like Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged in New York or watch an interview with Phoenix sharing their views on Daft Punk.

Oh, and it’s all embeddable and in high quality, unlike that other music video site.

Editor's Note: The preceding message is all fine and dandy for American residents. Unfortunately, Canadians aren’t permitted to view MTV’s content because its copyright restricted from playing the video outside of the U.S. And if you think a proxy server can get you access, well good luck with that because the ones we tried couldn’t fool whoever programmed this new, "fabulous” site. Canadians want their MTV too.
