What is it?
eMusic/J is a cross-platform, open source download manager for the eMusic.com music service. It takes the .emx file that you get from the eMusic.com website, and downloads the music specified in it. It can easily work with Firefox or other browsers to make downloading songs and albums simple.
Note: this program is in no way affiliated with eMusic.com. Don't expect them to support it. If there are any issues with it, bring them to the attention of the author.
Why did I write it/why should you use it?
The old eMusic download manager for Linux was very buggy, hard to make work, and frankly not very nice. So this was an alternative for Linux users. With support from Naxos for their use, it was brought to Windows and Mac OSX also.
Getting it and using it
To get it, simply go to the Download page, or Download version 0.28 here: 32-bit Linux, 64-bit Linux, PPC Linux, Windows, Mac OSX. The download page contains useful information if you are a first time user.
