@grayareas hadn't seen song.link before. Pretty cool little service.

@kordumb Yeah. I used to link to Spotify, which I use, but half my friends use Apple or don’t subscribe to a streaming service. Then I saw someone here at m.b using this service. I switched and I love it. Will eventually update my old links. 👍🏽 🎵 🎶

@schuth You mean the song.link service or “Get Down?” 🤪

@grayareas The former was new to me, but I always dig Curtis!

@grayareas Any idea how it selects the YouTube link/embed? Everything I’ve tried seems to be some random person’s YouTube post, whereas I always try to link to a version provided by the artist or publisher (the “Topic” or “The Orchard” versions), if available.

@smokey I don’t know, honestly. Did you look at the FAQ? Maybe they explain it there.

@grayareas Heh, I didn’t even realize they had a FAQ (or anything), hiding everything as they did behind that three-lined thingy. Old-school brain tonight.

@smokey That’s okay. I didn’t know either, just thought maybe. Did you find an answer?

@grayareas No, the FAQ wasn’t that in-depth, just that if the embed is wrong, there’s a link to let them know. I suppose there’s probably a contact address where I could make the suggestion…
