View Full Version : Inserting a Flash mp3 player: HELP!

01-21-2010, 05:30 PM
I have been trying for 2 days now to insert a Flash mp3 player on this website i'm building with BlueVoda. The player is from PremiumBeat and I can't seem to be able to get thru the step 2 of their instructions (http://www.premiumbeat.com/flash_resources/free_flash_music_player/multiple_tracks_mp3_player_menu.php)
Can anyone please help?!?!?
I need to publish this website asap and since it's for a musician, it is crucial that there's an mp3 player so visitors can listen to his material.
If you have any suggestions for an mp3 player other than this one, please let me know too!

tks in advance

You need a html expert & I'm sure one will be along soon....

Hey Cadin

download and unzip
Create a folder in your public_html and call it audio
ftp unzipped files to public_html/audio
ftp you mp3 files to public_html/audio
open new text document and paste this

<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>

<div id="flashPlayer">
This text will be replaced by the flash music player.

<script type="text/javascript">
var so = new SWFObject("playerMultipleList.swf", "mymovie", "295", "200", "7", "#FFFFFF");

Save as index.html
ftp to public_html/audio
create your playlist.xml - open a text document
copy and paste below
edit red part - u can add as many title/songs as you want.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<path>the name of the song.mp3</path>
<title>Track 1 - name of your title</title>
<path>the name of the song.mp3</path>
<title>Track 2 - name of your title</title>
<path>the name of the song.mp3</path>
<title>Track 3 - name of your title</title>

save this file as playlist.xml
ftp to your public_html/audio
you can test it by typing you www.yourwebsitename.com/audio (http://www.yourwebsitename.com/audio)
you can use inline frame to call it up from any page you want this on.

Here's a test (http://www.atexflooring.ca/audio/) for you to check it out

If you need an alternative? Upload all your tracks to your server & fill in this form (http://plebius.org/flashmp3player), then enter the code generated in a html box on your BV page.

Hi Mike matrix,

tks so much for your help.
If I may ask you a couple more questions:

= when you say ftp files to public_html/audio, do you mean save the files in this folder? (forgive my ignorance)

= when you tell me to open a new text document, copy and paste the blue text, and save it as index.html, i can't find a format on the "save as type" scroll that gives me .html. The nearest i can get is if i save it as web page, then it gives me a .htm.

Again, forgive my ignorance and thanks for helping

kind regards

Hi Cadin

You can use the ftp manager in bluevoda - open BV - tools ftp manger
or you can download filezilla or coreftp. they r free - google them.
so yes have the files in your audio folder that you've created in public_html
open text document paste save as index.html - you can do this by saving as then you type index.html then press save
So basically you are typing the index.html instead of looking for the extension.
or you can ftp the index.txt to your audio folder...once there right click and rename----change from index.txt to index.html

I hope that clarifies it for you.

You can do the same thing for the playlist.xml file

Thank you so much for this solution! I had the same problem with a mp3 flash player with a .xml playlist that kept saying undefined when I tested it, but it worked fine in Flash. I have been trying to find a solution for three days. Thank you again.
