YouTube helps viewers purchase music from iTunes and Amazon

YouTube added a few new handy buttons below videos that contain music.

That way if you are digging on the tune, you can instantly go to iTunes or Amazon.com to download it.

According to Googleblog:

“When you view a YouTube video with a great soundtrack, you often see comments from YouTube users asking about the name of the song and where they can download it. Or when users watch the trailer for an upcoming video game, they want to know when it will be released and where they can buy it.”

Now, how can I get back those numerous minutes of searching!
