How to create streaming links

This time around, SJWorld encourages E.L.F who can’t use their coupon because they have no time to stream to share all or part of their coupon through genie streaming links!

You don’t have to share all streams, you may share an amount out our your 100 free streams with ELF who have time on their hands to stream when you don’t. For example if you still want to stream but know you won’t be able to use all 100 streams—each song must be played once per hour so after listening to the whole album you must wait till the next hour to play again.

 

Via PC
  • Search the artist (ex. Super Junior/Henry/Zhoumi/Yesung/etc.)
  • Go to the song you want to share.
  • Once there, scroll down to the list of songs and select one individually by clicking on the check box. Check images below.
    • Note: The use of streaming link is first come, first serve, so we recommend you only share one song per link.

Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.53.12 AM

  • After selecting the song/s you want to share, press triple dot and then select “공유하기/음악나누기” (Share music).

sharegift

  • A pop up window will come out.
  • Click on “링크 URL 만들기”

How to get 50 free streams

Genie runs an event that allows Genie users (users who already have an account) to share invite links that they can share with people who aren’t yet signed up to Genie, but this event IS NOT an ongoing event and will not always appear. If the event goes up again we will notify ELF so they can share with friends or through SJWorld so we can pass it on to ELF who do not have a genie account yet. We recommend waiting until the last week of October/ early days of November and if the event does not go up, people with no genie account that can and want to support may make a Genie account then.

    What is a genie coupon? A genie coupon contains 100 song credits. If you register the coupon in your genie account, you can stream 100 songs. For example, you can stream the title track #DEVIL on genie 100 times or the full album (which has 10 songs) 10 times.

    Can I use a genie coupon? Only ELF who made genie accounts before March 5, 2015 can use genie coupons. Foreigners are no longer allowed to make genie accounts.

    What if I have a genie coupon but I can’t use it? You may donate the coupon to SJ-World. Please email SJacrossthe7seas@gmail.com to donate the coupon. Please take note that genie codes from Mamacita, This is Love, Rewind, At Gwanghwamun, and The Beat Goes On are all expired.

    How can I stream via genie if I have a genie account? This tutorial shows how to stream via genie: http://blog.naver.com/love0sadie/220111652286

    How many coupons can I register in my genie account? Around March, there was a maximum of 5 codes that can be registered in 1 genie account. As of now, you may register more codes in your genie account.

    Stream #IWish via melOn and genie

    International ELF can only help with the ranking of #IWish in Korean digital charts via melOn and genie. Streaming in itunes does not help M&D in music shows. Please try to stream via melOn and/or genie to help M&D win in music shows~

    [ melOn ]

    melOn (www.melOn.com) is the most important digital chart. As you have seen, the boys always post screencaps of their albums from melOn. ALL music shows count melOn’s digital charts. Therefore, we should try to stream via melOn.

    • You have to purchase a melOn package in order to download and stream the full songs of the album in melOn.
      • The cheapest melOn package costs $9.99 + apple fee (about $0.70).
      • The $9.99 package will let you download 30 songs and stream any song on the website or app unlimited times for 30 days.
    • You also need an apple device in order to purchase from melOn.
    • If you don’t have an apple device, SJ-World is helping ELF purchase from melOn.

    Tutorial on how to sign up and stream via melOn: http://t.co/NzHiMPK6m6 (includes how SJ-World can help you purchase from melOn)

    After signing in, go to the album page: http://www.melon.com/album/detail.htm?albumId=2313902

    • Stream #IWish (the title track) or all 6 tracks
      • Streaming all 6 tracks would increase the chance of having more than 1 track reach melOn’s top 100
    • Rate the album with 5 stars
    • Like the album by clicking the heart
    • Like each song by clicking the heart of each song
    • You may also like M&D as an artist by clicking the star in the artist page: http://www.melon.com/artist/timeline.htm?artistId=548202

    Download the melOn app to stream on your smart phone: http://t.co/RrWVfTlWw8 (safer than playing the songs on your computer)

    [ genie ]

    If you registered in genie using your facebook or twitter account before March 5, 2015, you can still log in to genie (www.genie.co.kr). Genie currently has a limit of 5 codes (it might change as it used to have a limit of only 3 codes). If you have registered less than 5 genie codes in an account, you can still register more codes. Genie is counted in Inkigayo and Gaon digital charts~

    (We are currently finding a way for international ELF who have never registered in genie before to log in and stream in genie.)

    After signing in, go to the album page: http://www.genie.co.kr/Detail/f_Album_Info.asp?axnm=80557601

    Download the genie app to stream on your smart phone: https://t.co/n7Ha5ttZlf

    You do not need to pay in order to stream in genie. You will need a genie code. A genie code will allow you to stream 100 songs. You can use the code to stream the whole album (all 6 tracks) as many times as you can. We encourage everyone to stream all 6 tracks per hour so that we can increase the chance of having more than 1 track hit genie’s top 100 chart.

    If you decide to stream only #IWish, stream the song only once every hour: 00 to 59. For example: once at 1:05, once at 2:30, once at 3:10, etc. Even if you stream the song 10 times in an hour, it will only count once.

    Where can you find a genie code? Unfortunately, all the genie codes that came from Mamacita until The Beat Goes On Special Edition expired already. The genie codes from the physical M&D album can be used (as of now, we are unsure when the codes expire. We have to wait for the release of the album on April 21). After registering a code, we can use up the 100 credits for 60 days.

    If you bought other artists’ albums recently, they might have genie codes inside them too. Check at the back of the card (near the bottom in red font that says 2015년 X월 X일) to see when they expire.

    Tutorial on how to log in on genie and use the genie code to stream: http://t.co/wleCKBYIaA (only useful to ELF who made an account before March 5, 2015)

    • If you can log in to genie and you need a genie code, SJ-World will try to accumulate codes from donators. We will announce once we have genie codes to give away.
    • If you would like to donate your unused genie codes from a recent album (released end of March or later), please email SJacrossthe7seas@gmail.com and specify from which albums the genie codes are from.

    • You might have to change your phone settings to unblock the app first before you download it.
    • Even if you download the songs to your phone from the melon app, listening to them will not count as streaming if the songs do not have 다운 on the right of the track.
    • After you download the songs to your phone, clear your playlist.
    • Put the songs again in the playlist and make sure you see a wifi icon on the left of the track and 다운 on the right of the track. The correct way of streaming:

    Where can you find a genie code? This is Love (some), Rewind, At Gwanghwamun and The Beat Goes On STD version albums have genie codes inside them (the blue square card) and they expire on March 31, 2015. If the codes are registered in genie before March 31, then you can use up the 100 stream for 60 days.

    Genie codes from Mamacita albums expired on December 31, 2014. You can still try them in case they might work.

    If you bought other artists’ albums recently, they might have genie codes inside them too. Check at the back of the card (near the bottom in red font) to see when they expire. If it says 2015년 03월 31일 (or a later date), then you can still use them.
