If you haven’t used Amazon Cloud Player before, then it’s simply an online service where you can upload music and stream it via your internet browser. To get you started, Amazon gives you free cloud space for up to 250 songs if uploading — if you purchase digital music via the Amazon MP3 Store, then this will also appear in your music locker space, but won’t count toward this limit.
Whether you want to upload songs you have ripped from your own audio CDs or purchased from other digital music services, these simple steps show how to get your collection into the Amazon Cloud Player. All you need is an Amazon account. Once your songs are up in the cloud, you’ll be able to listen to them (via streaming) by using your computer’s browser. You can also stream to iPhone, Kindle Fire, and Android devices.
In order to upload your music (must be DRM-free), you first need to download and install the Amazon Music Importer application. This is currently available for the PC (Windows 7 / Vista / XP) and Mac (OS X 10.6+ / Intel CPU / AIR version 3.3.x). Follow these steps to download and install Amazon Music Importer:
