I have a list of audios on a page in media player. When I go online it tries to download all the media files right off instead of just when the play button is pressed. Also for some reason it has starting playing all of then at page loaded....I don't know why it has started doing that! Can anyone help please! the pages are found at:

Thanks Ruth

Have managed to stop the mediafiles from all playing simultaneously, but they are all still trying to download on page load, which slows things down considerably...any help please?

when you import the file you have the option of autostart, untick that box. now when someone goes to the page, they will hve to click on the play button for it to start. here is an example - these files are so small, i was able to put 2 on the same page, but usually i would have one on a page.

one on a page is:

another way to reduce the size is to make it a flash video. swf like here:

Hello Mr Magoo!
THe sermons index page I linked each individual title to a new page of it's own under the same title as the mp3 but change the .mp3 to.html, with reduced paged properties so it was a small box and made it a pop up window. Then I linked the mp3 for download and used media player for audio streaming, just made it long and thin. Glad you like it though!!

I used the windows media player icon in Blue Voda web builder and just clicked and dragged the corners to change the shape to long and thin. You need then to right click on it and add the mp3 file name of the mp3 that is already uploaded onto your FTP page....Hope that made sense...if not just let me know and I'd be glad to try and help.
