    say someone doesn't have a compatible plug-in... which one would you recommend? I'm looking for a good place to link from my site in case someone wants to download it.

    loop="-1" plays it on a loop

    loop="2" will play it twice.... or whatever you want

    As long as they have a music player that also has a plugin for netscapre it should work.

    what does loop="-1" do?
    I found a satisfactory way to play my music... by using embed and not hidden, at least people know that it's loading (as opposed to bgsound)
    HTML Code:
    <embed src="dolphin.mp3" autostart="true" hidden="false">
    what is the compatibility of this tag with netscape? Should I care? I personally know no one who still uses netscape and I haven't used it in a long time.

    well, yeah... I don't need a way to play the music anymore; the problem is the server downloading the music. As I said before, no matter how I try to play it, it always stops playing in the same spot; depending on the computer. Does anyone know how to avoid this? A different method of uploading, perhaps?

    Might you be interested in a Jukebox hack?

    It may not be what you are looking for, but then again...

    um, after checking out flash, my mission is not so apparent... check out this subsite, and maybe it will give you insight into what I should do differently... (it's a small site used on the main page with iframes)

    yes, it's not one of my best songs, but oh well. Like I said, the results are different depending on the computer I try it out on. (internet speed) On this computer it only plays 10 seconds, but on others it goes through the whole thing. Any surefire ways you could give me aside from flash? Any different suggestions?

    You can embed music, but you still need a third party plugin in order to play it. This is an end-user feature. Unless you can find streaming software that runs from your server that supports the .mp3 format. Otherwise make the .mp3 as music in a flash file - most browsers these days have flash player included.

    alright, how do I put music (mp3) on my new site? This site is there because of the music. I've tried many different methods I've looked up on the internet, but a lot don't work... on some occasions, it played successfully but it stopped half-way through. Anyone have any sure-way methods?
