This tutorial will explain how you can embed a MP3 player on your website to play music. In this tutorial we use a free MP3 player which can be downloaded from the following URL - http://www.flashmp3player.org/download.html
Please note that we do not offer any support
- Step 1
Download the flashmp3player from the following URL - http://www.flashmp3player.org/download.html
- Step 2
Extract the flashmp3player.zip on your pc and it will create a new directory called flashmp3player as seen below.
- Step 3
Once you have extracted the files, you will then need to connect to the server using an FTP client. If you have not used one before please refer to the following tutorials below.
- Step 4
Assuming that you are now connected to the server using an FTP client, create a directory on the server and for the purpose of this tutorial I will create a folder called mp3 as seen in the example below.
- Step 5
The next step is to upload the files located in the flashmp3player directory to the server by means of selecting all the files on the left (CTRL +a) and then dragging them to the right. After the files have uploaded, it should look similar to the example below.
- Step 6
Navigate back to directory on your pc where you downloaded the files to and locate the readme.html file and double click on it. It should then open the instructions in your browser. You will need to follow the instructions they provided carefully on order to get the mp3 player to work.
- Step 7
Open the site creator editor and click on the page that you want to embed the mp3 player on. Make sure that you have dragged the text & image module onto the desired page and click on the html option as seen below.
- Step 8
You will then need to copy and paste the code provided in the readme.html file as per their instructions. Please take note of sections that I created a red square around, as you will be require that you change the paths. If you have kept the directory structure the same as the example, simply look at the example below.
- Step 9
If you have followed the instructions carefully, you should see an mp3 play appear on the page after you have clicked on the site creator publish button.
- Step 10
The final step is to upload your mp3 music files. You should still have your ftp client open, navigate to the mp3 directory and within the directory you will see another mp3 folder which contains the demo music files. Simply upload the desired music files to that folder and your music files should now appear on the playlist.
