Hi all,

I would like to know if anyone could help me with the installing of background music. I could not come up with a solution to that issue so far. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Moved to "Other Problems."

There's several music background options that you have:

> http://help.forumotion.com/t90265-mixpod-widget
> http://help.forumotion.com/t112787-seamless-music-player

If you don't like any of those, I can always provide something better. Have a nice day. thumleft

Solved How to instal background music ?!

Hi, Sir Chivas,
thanks for your prompt reply. Unfortunately neither of those options you provided are working for me . I'd like to set up my own mp3 file which is on my PC but the SCM player is not working with the mp3 link I tried to create. I tried to link it with a youtube URL as well but then it wouldn't work seamlessly. I would appreciate any other suggestions. Thanks once again!

You can use the new html 5 audio tags which work very well. You need to upload your mp3 to a server that allows remote linking and add the url to the code below. Also you'll want to convert the mp3 to ogg format and upload that as well so all browsers can hear the sound. For example, Firefox can't read the mp3 with these new html5 tags but it can ogg, Safari 5+ can read an MP3 but not an ogg, Opera can't read read an mp3 but can a ogg, Internet Explorer !E-9 and above can only read an mp3 with this new html5 coding. etc. So if you have your sound file uploaded and in both these formats you'll have all your bases covered.

If you need to know how to make it play automatically or loop feel free to ask there are codes you can add to this that will do that.

Add the url of the sound files after the src="

Code:
<audio controls>
 <source src="horse.ogg" type="audio/ogg">
 <source src="horse.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
</audio>

Try this website: http://www.podsnack.com/

You have to register, once the playlist created add the HTML into a widget or at the homepage announcement.


Cheers.
