Music Plugin as Orkut application

Purushothaman, from the AI Development team, came up with an idea to try out bringing a Music Plugin player as an application in Orkut. He chose this as his project for the month of March 2009, as a part of our Auro Technology Research Program and in fact won the first prize for this month.

Orkut presents a series of APIs that helps developers build applications within Orkut and publish it within Orkut. Any user to Orkut can then add the application to their home page and also share it with their friends and groups.

Based on this experience, Purushothaman is now trying to take this concept to the next level as a part of his April 2009 project in the ATRP.

He is attempting to make Music Plugin itself as a portal where other websites can build their own applications and publish it. He is trying out using OpenSocial for this so that any one with a OpenSocial id can easily publish their applications in Music Plugin.

Will keep you updated on how it goes.
