Play music on my blog

Post by adam »

Hi anyone,

How could I add a flash player to my blog and upload music from my computer to play when people visit my blog site?

Any help on this would be kindly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Best Regards,
Adam

Which blog? Blogger? Wordpress?

Are you asking two questions;
1] How can you add a flash player to your blog, and
2] How can you upload music to play to visitors
or
Is it one question and are you wanting to play music using Flash?

Personally, I avoid like the plague any sites that impose music on me. If I visit a musician's site, then fair enough - I expect it, but otherwise I resent the wasted bandwidth, having to suffer other people's musical tastes, and having to scrabble for volume control...

Thanks for the reply leif. I'm using Blogger.

In short what I'm wanting is how to make the visitor to view the song list and when he clicks any of them it starts to play.

Try searching the Blogger Help files - e.g. Search results - Blogger Help, which should yield some ideas, such as How do I add a song to my Blog?? - Blogger Help.

For one web site that I was editing, I purchased a very cheap tool called JukeIt, it's not perfect but does an adequate job and is good value.

Thanks for all the replies and help. I guess youtube has everything I want. Where it gives me the opportunity to create playlists of my favorite songs and then embed the code in my blog.
Best Regards,

If you have still need an answer for this topic please read below.

Per my experience, flash (.swf/.fla) files isn't good option to add into the website. Reason is those file types need additional plugins to play most devices. (Ex: Android devices, IOS Devices need additional plugins to run your file.)

My suggestion is you can try HTML5 to achieve this very simply :bubbles:

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<audio controls>
  <source src="youraudiofile.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
</audio>
</body>
</html>
Simply you can replace youraudiofile.mp3 with audio URL or path.

Beneficent is this will be allowed your site users to play audio without installing any plugin. Also this will allow you to add .mp3 and .ogg both file formats to play audios.
