Wow.

That's pretty awesome. Really underscores how lacking the official site is.

Just so there is no confusion...I have nothing to do with this widget (create, profit, etc) I just found it on there website.

There's no profit it in for Yahoo either, other than to promote their services.

just installed yahoo! widgets and this player. looks really awesome so far. has channel presets, has a bring to front feature so you can bring it up right away to change the channel or whatever. not getting the song/artist info it just says 'waiting for data'. anyone else try it yet?

I just installed it too, it's great. The text is small, but I can live with that. Wish there was an S-seek feature, but even without it beats the pants off the official player. Now we just need a Firefox extension...

It works really good, very low CPU and memory overhead.

WOW this thing is so awesome. This is what the Sirius online player should be. They're light years behind with their clunky streaming player. Thanks for pointing this out.

Sometimes it seems to have trouble getting the data, but mine usually has the artist/song. Text is a little small, but this is 1000% better than that slow running MSS that Sirus provides.

It is like Sirius' online player in that you will have to wait for the next song to begin before you get artist/song data.

Even with the (few) limitations, this thing is above and beyond Sirius' version!

Me likey.

Ok, I guess I'm a big dummy, but all I'm getting are the words:

"Logged in, retrieving channels..."
