View Full Version : Problems with flash mp3 player

01-24-2011, 05:12 PM
Hi guys,

We're relatively new to the bluevoda site maker, and we've been trying to install a flash mp3 player (specifically the one listed here : http://www.premiumbeat.com/flash_music_players/original/multiple/) to our page.

Though the directions seem very simple, I'm finding I'm not sure how to actually get it to work. I've tried creating HTML, and even javascript and flash boxes, and using the non-script option detailed in there. Long story short, I can't get anything to show once we get it up to the site (and unless I'm using flash, even in preview). I suspect this may have to do with the redirection of the location of the files on the server, but even then, I'm not sure exactly how I should be uploading those in blue voda. I've tried to put them on with the blueftp, but the addresses that gives me is just the ftp://ip address/ filename type extension. I've also tried heavily guessing at the locations with the control panel, but I can't find anything that gives me an indicator of the full extension on what should be our domain, so I'm pretty unsure at this point if the FTP is even the way to go about this.

Suffice to say, I've spent a few trial an error hours on this and I'm pretty frustrated. If anyone else has done something similar your help would be greatly appreciated!

As an update, I've talked to a web savvy friend who seems to be able to make it work remotely through his server, so I know the script works and uses the files from our location fine. Of course the problem is using this method means it will erase the next time I update from my vodahost editor. Does anyone know the correct way to incorporate it through the editor itself as an embedded player?
