I searched for a similar discussion here but could not find any.

I wondered if there already is a tool which would allow users to easily pay for MP3 tracks they listen to online. Let's take www.soundcloud.com for example.

First, upon upload, the artist should provide his track with a unique public address where payments will be sent. Then, when I am listening to it, a small prompt next to the track could ask if I would like to support or thank this artist by a small donation. When I click confirm, it should initiate the whole transaction - through a script within soundcloud, or maybe a chrome add-on...

You get the idea... Some additional features I thought about are: paying customers might have some added benefits (like high quality download), each track may have addresses in many different crypto currencies, charts for most listened songs will be public, easy to calculate and easy to verify for manipulation by inspecting the block chains, etc.

Of course, the main use of such service today would be promoting the use of crypto-currencies for micro payments. Is something similar already underway?

I have a feeling that many crypto-supporters will choose to use such a service just to show the numerous artists and DJs a nice and fair revenue option. This should start the ball for them rolling...

Thanks for reading and a Happy New 2014

Could be awesome -- all this really is is a time linked donation button (many services for that (donation) already).  

You could just use some js like http://popcornjs.org/ and tie the donation button display to a point in the song.

This could be really well suited for an indie site like http://www.thesixtyone.com/.

It would be really cool if the artist wallet address was actually embedded directly into the song using an ultra-sonic frequency.

Things that people cannot hear are removed from lossy audio encoding.

There is already id3 metadata where such info could be added to audio files:

I am working on this but have not been sucsessful.

However I did manage this

There is a QR code embeded into the song, let me know if you have figured out how to get it out.

How and where did you embed it? It won't be possible to get it out at SoundCloud unless SoundCloud collaborate.

Could we gather a team to make a simple BitCoin-SoundCloud with this simple functionality:

 - Uploaders should embed their public address in some of the MP3 tag fields
 - When creating an account, users can choose to upload some BTC in their account, or decide to pay on a case to case basis, thus having no risk at all.

The per-pay function may incorporate some BlockChain.info API or bitcoin wallet addons for Chrome where the payment should happen with a simple click.

I think most of the user interface, streaming functionality can be found for free on the web.
What needs to be done is public address embedding and payment functionality...

"Are you using a method similar to this to encode and decode the audio overlay?"

YEs but I have not been able to "hide" the information well, you hear it loudly. However I could encrypt the info with a password, so instead of a paper wallet you would have a sound wallet.
