    Hi all, I am redoing my friends music site and was wondering if anyone knows of a media player example that I can add to the page that will play his songs? I have seen them on sites and have actually seen ones that play the same song as you navigate through the site. A basic example will do me though. Thanks for your help.

    I used to use flash to create the playlist... Problem is... If its embedded in a page, when you leave that page, the music stops... Have to force a popup or new window... Throw it on top...

    Most people have some sort of player that will play mp3 files ... The trick is how to embed them.

    The biggest issue I ever faced with this was the hosting company... I had to give them proof that I had permission from the music creator and or publishers before they would let me actually link them into the site. At the time I didn't understand, but its more about liability... They didn't want to get sued by anyone ...

    Also, check your TOS, many shared environments don't allow media files be hosted.

    Thanks for that info. I don't particularly like having flash on my sites but this is kind of what it was made for. I think I might have tutorials on how to create it too. The idea of it opening in a new window is good. I think I will try that or even having an option of opening it in a new window. It looks like a bit of studying for me to figure this out. Thanks again for you help.
