    Hi,

    Is there any good tips for creating your own label, releasing an album yourself?

    1) Streaming app.for demoing song?
    2) Protection of song?
    3) Make compatible with I-tune?
    4) sell song to I-tune etc.
    5) make cover, text availble with I-Tune, Mediaplayer etc.

    Wimpy player (www.wimpyplayer.com). Cheap to buy a license. Uses flash...anyone can listen through a web page without needing to install anything except flash (which most have anyway for web browsing). Streams MP3s that are hidden behind flash.

    Using above...disable caching of the streaming MP3 through the flash player. Very simple to do in the customization page at the above website. There is no way of saving the MP3. Song could be recorded if someone really wanted to by using a line-out of the computer to record what is being sent to the speakers. But with what is involved to do it...most won't even bother. The ones who really want to not pay for the music will always find a way.

    Make CDs though disk Makers (www.diskmakers.com) and you will be automatically sent on to CDBaby and iTunes for consideration.
