MySpace Music unveils 'Romeo' video app

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — MySpace is further defining itself as a place to find music rather than a catchall social networking site. On Thursday, it launched a music video player that plays random videos to match users' mood.

The MySpace Music Romeo application lets users select from 15 genres such as pop or hip hop and 13 moods including "chill," ''naughty" and "studying." Videos play automatically, interspersed with artist images and an advertisement every 15 minutes or so.

Users can "love" videos (thus, the name Romeo), and then get more videos like the ones they choose. But they won't be able to search for specific songs.

The Romeo application launches both as a free app for Apple Inc.'s iPad and as an application that can be played from computer Web browsers.
