JogLi is an internet search engine with a difference; you can use it for searching for music. It searches on the free video sharing websites (mainly YouTube) to track down free music clips. It then categories the clips into albums so that you can easily find tracks you want to listen to. You can also use the site to listen to entire albums rather than just selecting individual tracks. There is also the option to have the lyrics displayed next to the video so that you can learn how to sing it; although not quite as good as Karaoke it’s getting close! Jogli has access to around 12 million entire albums! That’s a staggering 500 million songs! No music is stored on the website it is played from the original source but you do not have to leave the site.Show more screenshots »
JogLi was founded by David Schwartz, and is based in Tel-Aviv, Israel. It’s a very popular music search engine which can be used to find exciting music videos that you would like to watch and listen to.
Jogli doesn’t really offer anything new; it just makes it easier to find music videos to watch. All of the videos are embedded from YouTube, this means that you could completely bypass the site and search for the songs you want in YouTube. Plus as YouTube now features a playlist function you could easily create a similar thing yourself, with the exception of being able to add in different tracks from different artists. All this application does it make it easy to play related tracks, the music is organized into albums. This means it’s very easy to search for a specific artist, and then you can play one of their albums. It’s also possible to take a look at what other people are listening to by looking at their playlists.
The application is very nicely designed and it’s very easy to use. All the music is split up into separate albums which makes it really easy to find what you’re looking for. You can either look at some of the popular selections, or search for any artist you want in the top box. You will be amazed at how many videos there are on offer! There’s dozens of them. You can also search for song names which can make it much easier to find the song you want to listen to. One very nice feature is that it also searches for lyrics and displays them on the same page as the video; this can make it a great site for learning to sing new songs. For some reason a small rounded rectangle is displayed in the middle of all the videos even when they are in full screen.
Registering is not required to view videos and listen to songs; however you can register if you want. Simply click the register link at the top of any page and fill out the small form. Note that if you have a Google account then you can sign in with your Google account without needing to sign up again. Slight annoyances with the signup is that sometimes there are scroll bars in the registration window, and there are also a few spelling mistakes, although these are only minor annoyances. You will then automatically be logged into your account.
Using Jogli is completely free for everyone; the site has no paid subscriptions.
Jogli is suitable for anyone that wants to listen to music but can’t spare the few seconds to search on YouTube. Bearing in mind copyright laws it’s unlikely that all the tracks on the site are legal. This could mean that they will get taken down and the site may be left with dead links. Some of the videos are official from the artists themselves, but others are contributed by various people.
