Last.fm Launches Video Recommendations

Aggrega and Seeqpod are doing it so it was only a matter of time until one of the leaders in personalized music decided to tackle music videos. Last.fm will launch a new feature this week that will let users create their own personalized music video channels. One significant difference is that Last.fm isn't using YouTube to source its videos - it's partnering directly with music labels.

Video quality is expected to be higher than that of YouTube with audio encoded at 128kbps (CD quality) compared to YouTube's 64kbps. Initially, most of the content will come from independent labels with artists like Arctic Monkeys, Moby, and Aphex Twin.

Will Last.fm become the MTV of Web 2.0? Not so fast - it's probably only a matter of time until Pandora decides video is its logical next step.
