New IMEEM limits prevents full streaming

I use an embedded IMEEM player to stream the music you hear on Hoi Polloi Music. Recently, they have limited the embedded player to a 0:30 minute preview of several songs. Per their FAQ "When you find a song on imeem that is a 30-second preview, it means that the artist or record label that has registered the song in our database has not approved full-length streaming for our users. Consistent with copyright fair use principles, the song will be streamed to you as a 30-second preview."

This has affected many songs in previous posts that had previously streamed the full song. I understand this restriction, but it does create issues on my site. However, there is an option, I will begin to post a link to the full song on IMEEM which will play the full track. I will try to find the full track, but this will still allow you to hear the full song and gives a backup in case they change a song in the future. You can sign up at for free to listen.

Thank you for your support.

Also, if a link or playback is broken, please comment so I know and can fix it.
