How to search and download music from multiply

I used to discover a lot of music because of the MP3s posted on social networking site multiply. It seems that they've wisened up and disabled the search and download options but it still is possible and I'll show you how.

The easy way is to visit the multiply music search tool. It's great if it works but sometimes you get a 403 forbidden error message and you'll just have to try again.

If the method above doesn't work, try this sure fire method of reviewsbyp:

How to search for mp3's on multiply:

step 1. Don't use regular google because multiply music isn't indexed anymore. Instead, use: http://blogsearch.google.com and prefix your query with the phrase "site:multiply.com/music" (exclude the quotation marks).

  • For example if you're searching for wolfgang, type this (without quotation marks) in the search box: "site:multiply.com/music wolfgang"
  • You can also put both the artist and song name like this: "site:multiply.com/music yellow submarine beatles"
step 2. When the results appear in the list, do not click on the link directly because multiply will bring you to an error page. Instead, copy (right click > copy shortcut / link location) and paste the link (CTRL + V) into the address bar of a new window (CTRL + N).

How to download the songs from multiply
The actual links to the mp3s are hidden but easy to find. From the multiply page, right click on the "play this playlist" and save the M3U file on your desktop. Open this M3U file with notepad (or Word) and you will see the direct links inside. Copy and paste link into your browser's address bar and you're good to go.
