How do I insert music/media player in a webpage?

Posted 07 April 2007 - 08:17 PM

So you visit places like my space and other musicians websites and you see their songs listing, you click the name of the song and it pops up a player that plays the tunes rather then letting them download to windows media player.

Some websites already have a player on the page like myspace, you just click on the name of the song and it starts to play. I'm interested in music and audio players only, not video.

The deal is to prevent downloads but allow people to listen to the songs.

I'm using Dreamweaver 8 to be specific.

Any ideas?


Thanks, Patrick

most of the sites are using a flash based player now-a-days i think.

probably the best way to prevent people from downloading it easily.

SwishMax has a application dedicated to creating Flash based music players. I believe the url is swishzone.com great line of products.

other then that you could use regular flash to develop your own.

Developing one in Flash is your best option.

On my guitar/music site I use the JW MP3 Player. It's a flash based player and works very well. The one trick with it is to dynamically change what's being played. You can see a Javascript example of how to do this if you view source on my backing tracks page. Of course, I allow downloads on my site but you should be able to secure your music with a little work.
