Music Center Search is owned by PlayMediaCenter, and Internet website at Playmediacenter.com. It seems that the people who set up this website have also created this program. We cannot call PlayMediaCenter because it does not say that it is a company. Its PO Box is located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. However, the location of the company (if it could be called that) is anyone’s guess. Hence, Music Center Search was created by a questionable entity. Note that, when you have installed this program, it will force open a new tab and load Games.myappline.com/wim/lp/lp51/index_15.php?id=2, website that promotes a game-related website which seems to be legitimate.
As mentioned in the introduction, Music Center Search might enter your PC secretly because we have received reports that it is promoted on torrent and other websites that can redirect you to its main website. However, when visiting Playmediacenter.com, we did not see a download of this application, but the website features four similar applications. In any case, the download links of those programs redirect you to the Chrome Web Store. And, even though, Music Center Search is not promoted on the main website, you can get it from the Chrome Web store as well. According to the store’s stats, this program has more than 67,000 users and we predict that this number is set to increase.Music Center Search screenshot
