DivShare to stream MP3s now!

I consider DivShare as the best,among tons of file sharing/hosting sites out there, because they are free, fast and reliable. Moreover, they keep our files online forever. Now, they have announced a great new addition to their features list – MP3 Streaming. All your old as well as new MP3s will get a built-in Flash “Play” button.

Using the built in-flash player, your friends won’t have to download the MP3 in order to hear them. Unlike most of the audio hosting services, DivShare also provides an option to download them MP3.

See a live example here.

In the next few days, DivShare will introduce a new sharing option which allows you to embed flash MP3 player into your blog/profile. Like always, DivShare doesn’t like copyrighted music, so don’t upload them (even as private files).

DivShare needs to release an uploading tool, something like Uploadr for Flickr. It’s hard to upload multiple files (more than 5) using browser.
