Can you upload a video with a maximum of 30 seconds or less of copyrighted music for non-profit use? Plus giving credit? Nothing too much. :innocent: 'Revamp'

Terrible idea!! Music alters the mood and can influence the way art is viewed. If you want to listen to music, there are many other ways to do so. Just imagine trying to appreciate some pastoral scene with improv Jazz playing in the background. Of course you could always watch on mute.

I think if it's just on the profile page and if I can turn it off, it's fine. I think it'd be kind of interesting, but it might take the page longer to load xD;;

I don't think just profile page had background music will turn dA become myspace.

With flashblock and not having my speakers inless im watching something will bother me but i just don't see the need for adding music to your profile seemed weird in myspace and could see tons of copyright issues like youtube deleting still thats fair-use "because they can"

I was kind of mixed. I really want to focus on the artworks, so music would be very distracting. It would be even more distracting, if you could not choose the music on yourself: a happy note when you look at a heavy pic with melancholical undertones? - Very odd.
So as long as they cannot limit on "neutral" tunes (and such are hardly to find), which also might slow down the page, I would prefer no music at all. If you necessarely want it - better add Youtube in the background!

I think it's a great idea! There's already music and sounds in animations or movies posted on DA. If an artists has a piece of work meant to be heard with a certain melody to set the mood, then why shouldn't they allow it? Music is a form of art too, and it'll be great to hear what people come up with. I'm just afraid people might abuse it (use copyrighted music, music theft, etc.), but you see those problems everywhere. Plus I'm sure there's already sites made specifically for music sharing for new artists (similar to [link] ).

I'm fine with just my ipod or youtube while on dA. I don't want things to be slowed down because of music:/

I don't see any harm in it inherently if they code it properly (site's already a bit sluggish for me ever since they implemented these http://marikbentusi.deviantart.com/#/d5iciha sites to analyze more data), but I can't say I like the trend of this site becoming less of a creative portal and more of a "hey look at these neat pictures" place which leads to the front page being consistently flooded with... certain pictures.

Plus there's so many other things for dA to implement and fix and catch up to, I wouldn't like them put priority on background music of all things.

But if they do it I hope they put in a "disable music by default" button, because just like there's profiles full of seizure-inducing plz account icon spam, there'd be people posting varying degrees of earrape.

I'm not sure, but if there were, I think it should only be on profile pages, because it'd be sad if it stole all the attention from the art...

Oh, no, I can never imagine that. I don't think I've ever visited a website that plays music in the background.
I guess some people would like it if they liked the songs playing or they could choose their own songs. But a lot of people would also find it annoying I think.

music is an artform which DA doesn't allow presently. i think that it should be a supported medium, and i've inquired about it. DA isn't into it though.

yes, I know. but I still want it to have.
cus dA is be the most ideal place to link artist and their favorite music, instead of browse their own website.

Sort of, but at the same time, no, because some people are pickyish and might not like the music they have on theyre account, or they could be listening to a song already and then it just ruins it, or its all quiet and they get scared the crap out of when they just pull up the site XD
