    Hi,
    I've inserted a graphic into my web page with Dreamweaver and I would like to superimpose 3 transparent mp3 audio buttons (evenly from left to right) so visitors can click and hear what they see.
    How do I do that?
    It's been suggested to create a table and set the table background to the image. I tried that but did not get very far.
    Replies for a Dreamweaver beginner would be much appreciated.
    regards
    GB

    What are you superimposing the audio buttons over? and image, or some text?

    What will they be clicking to hear the MP3.

    I'm sort of thinking of a Flash MP3 player without any visible controls.
    Using PHP or Javascripting to activate the player.

    ml the bad part of that is embedding with hidden leaves a blank like an image that wont load in ie7 and worse in some others like opera. if anyone finds a solution of how to do this without that side effect it would be great. i found this glitch when trying embedded sound effects for links.

    while($get_it !== true){ continue; }

    I'm thinking there might be a Flash Player that has the option to be called to play
    without any visible controls (like an API). Wimpy Flash Player comes to mind.
    I can't remember if Wimpy has that feature or not.

    Playing MP3 with a Flash Player is very good compatibility across platforms (PC / Mac).

    I'll look for something that I can use to create a real working example.

    EDIT:
    With the Wimpy MP3 player:
    http://www.wimpyplayer.com/docs/mp3/....overview.html

    You can make your own skins. Click the graphic "skin" and it plays.
    The skin could be any graphic image you want.

    You can download the demo files, but the real version is not free.

    I've use the basic Wimpy MP3 button before and it works good, but you need the
    MP3 player with "skins", so you can use your own graphics.

    It's an image (a picture of music on a music stave).

    I already have the code for an mp3 button player that has a transparent version, in other words you can see through the player but you can still click the play button.

    The image shows 3 chords distributed evenly over about 500pix, leaving enough room to insert 3 transparent buttons without obscuring the image.
    It is not the perfect solution.

    The best way would be:

    Create 3 hot spots in the image and play the mp3 when the visitor hovers over and then clicks. But I haven't found any mp3 audio player designers out there who can give me that solution.

    I can easily fix this problem by placing the play buttons underneath the image but I'd love to find a solution to either the transparent or the hot spot idea.

    By the way, I tried the wimpy player but found their support to be non-existent.

    Thanks for all the replies so far.

    Read the discussion for the link below.
    He had similar problems and has issues with FF2 and IE,
    but realized the problem was local on his PC. Once he
    uploaded the Javascripting, it worked. Follow the discussion
    through the thread and see if his solution might work for you.
