But wouldn't it be cool if it was? :)
Here some problems that I think prevent youtube from being a music player:
Music search is not powerful enough:
- Few videos for every song, but finding the best quality version is hard
- No option to filter out covers, live recordings, deleted videos or videos with no audio
- No true search or browsing by artist, album, genre, year, etc.
- No additional lyrics, album art, bio, chords, etc
Poor playback (with playlists):
- New search stops playback
- Playing next video can take few seconds
- Bad videos can jam the playlist
- Most playlists contain duplicate videos, unrelated , removed or low quality videos.
- Audio volume varies from video to video
- Long beginning or ending of audio may be silent
