Solved Upload MP3 file to my website.

Post by Guest on January 9th 2015, 7:51 am

Hey!

I've got a webshop using a MP3 music file as background music, but I want to replace it with another MP3 file I've got currently stored locally and keep it somewhere on my board. Is that possible? And how? I've got 50 Mb of free storage space and the MP3 file is about 43 Mb of size. The link to the MP3 file should be available to use it in my HTML page.

Website: http://fcnl.actieforum.com
Version: phpBB3

Thanks in advance! Hello

Samantha.

Hello @SamanthaS,

Music on your board is usually a bad idea since people usually get annoyed by those. It takes additional data to load, plus some people might be listening to something else at the moment of browsing your site and then your song pops up. But, if you insist on using it, I suggest you to simply embed youtube video to your song. Try to use video that has only lyrics or static image because that will load faster and then just embed it with disabling video on it (showing just the player commands bar) and you can even enable autostart. That way, people will be able to stop the song if they get annoyed by it. Of course if you insist on not showing them the player with options, you can simply hide it with CSS.

Thanks for looking into this, @APE. I thought I saw it somewhere within the attachment system. It was for my webshop, remember? I changed the song already. Topic solved & locked, please. Smile

PS: If you don't mind I won't comment on @Mad Scientist's story.

Okay, my post sounded like something impossible to do, sorry about that.

Let me show you what I mean:

Code:
<object style="width: 200px; height: 24px;"><param id="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[b][color=#3399ff]9bZkp7q19f0[/color][/b]?autoplay=1&rel=0&fs=0&autohide=0" /><param id="allowFullScreen" value="false" /><param id="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed style="width: 200px; height: 24px;" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9bZkp7q19f0?autoplay=1&rel=0&fs=0&autohide=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="false" allowscriptaccess="always" /></object>



Normal youtube link looks like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0

Just take that colored video code and place it at this place in the above code:

http://www.youtube.com/v/9bZkp7q19f0

Note that this link appears twice in the code so you will have to change it on both places.

Now, to use this code, just paste it somewhere on your site where HTML is enabled, like Widgets etc. Try it out and you will see how easy is to play songs like that. If you want to make it hidden, just put width and height to 1px (on both places). Simple as that. If your song is not already on youtube (which I highly doubt will happen), then you can always upload it to youtube and then use it. Youtube is the best song hosting service, simply said. Plus I don't think you want to load 43 MB song in your website (even if your song in youtube is 43MB, which again is hard to accomplish due to compression rate there), when your youtube video loads, it won't load whole thing immediately, just part by part as the song goes, which is again great.

I know you marked topic as solved, but maybe this solution will be useful for you in future. Enjoy.

Thanks, but my codes were implemented years ago...

Widget code:
Code:
<div id="ForumIntroMusic_by_Samantha" style="width:1px;height:1px;overflow:hidden;">
           <object style="width: 300px; height: 300px;"><param id="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed style="width:
300px; height: 300px;" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/oR-29kYl_a0?autoplay=1&loop=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" /></object>
</div>

I've got plenty of online radio widgets as well to choose from.

HTML code:
Code:
<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.0/jquery.min.js"></script><audio style="" controls="" autoplay="" loop="" hidden="true"><source src="http://mariomedia.net/music/Nintendo%2064/Banjo-Kazooie/129%20-%20Click%20Clock%20Wood%20%28Spring%29.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" /></audio><style type="text/css">

Please stay on topic next time. I didn't ask for anyone's opinion.

It's not an opinion, it's an alternative solution to the problem you stated, but thanks for appreciating my time and effort. Anyway I don't want to raise tensions, you have some pretty cool stuff on your forum like that super mario navbar and I like it. Wish you all the best Wink
