Recommended Posts

I am full of questions!!! I would like to install a media player on my main site. i would like to have a mp3 play if users want it to. I want to have a play button, and pause, and stop. basicly i dont want it to start playing by it self, only if users want to. I have been googling and googling for an hour... and I cannot find anything... can someone assist me?

I think the Media Player is not part of the website, its an application installed on the visiting computer. And this is usually the choice of the visitor and they control how it plays. You just supply the media file and the visitor plays it with what ever application they perfer, they could have multiple choices.

 

There maybe a Java or plugin you try but you should wait for someone else who may know more about them to reply.

I found a few ways to do this through google using the word "embedding media player" without the ".

 

However, keep in mind that this can eat your bandwidth very fast.

I know it can eat bandwidth... I want to test it however... we might be growing as a club, and a suggestion was to have a song of the day, I give them my Russian techno music to listen too :lol:

 

Thanks!!

Let me know if you got it to work. I did something similar when I was doing my wife's thesis. She had to have students listen to a 2-minute long passage. I embedded the mp3 files into a web page. I didn't want the students to be able to control the files, though, so I ended up putting the embedded mp3 player onto a 1px by 1px iframe, and used a button control on the top page to control the content in the iframe.

 

It wasn't an elegant solution, but it worked.

 

Anyway, if you need help, let me know.

Hello,

 

Hope you have found your solution. Remember the embedded media player assumes the client has that on thier computer.

 

If you get stuck, let us know!

At one time I remember seeing an embedded player for wordpress. Not sure how your side is designed; but if you are using WP that might be an option.
