That's an interesting site - had not seen it!
The German songs are sometimes blocked due to copyright issues (YouTube wont allow certain song to be played in Germany) but it seems interesting. A first run at the game seems to work fine for listening comprehension but, for me, there tool is not a good method for context and learning understanding. But still, it is fun and I think I'll use it once in a while. And some of the German pop on there might be a good source for my own files. Thanks!
There is another video learning tool called fluentu - I believe this is the one that a friend uses to scroll through videos - basically the same as sub2srs cards without the hassle of building the deck. I'll have to ask my friend is that is what she uses. Not sure if it is a paying site.
