custom web links Edit

Configure up to six web links, using templates to create targeted URLs. Links can be accessed by right clicking in Track Information, the Now Playing Bar, the Now Playing Node, or the Compact Player. If you have the Web Browser Plugin enabled, MusicBee will open the links there; otherwise it will use your default browser.

These links are preconfigured for you:

The Track Information panel also supports these links directly in the panel:

  • artist profile on Wikipedia
  • artist news on Google News
  • music blogs [about the artist] on

If you still need more links, you can add them by using your browser as an external application.

There is a list of suggestions for web links at Web Encyclopedia List.
