Solved Add a profile field for music to user profiles

Description of problem

Not too sure whether this is the correct section to post this in, so I apologize in advance. If it's not please move it to the correct one xD

I was wondering if there's a way to add in a profile field to profiles that will allow members to add in one autoplaying song from youtube to their profile. The music player/field would be hidden, so it'd basically be like background music.

Hai @Skouliki,

I saw that topic as well. But I know that is it possible. There's a user profile on a forum that I visit from time to time and she has a Billy Music Player in one of her fields.
This is it Hopefully you can view it without signing it LOL.

But this is the coding I see when I open DevTools:

So she somehow embedded a Billy Player into her profile..

Thanks Skouliki! I'll take a look at it after lunch c:
I skimmed over it and it seems like it could work. I'll play around with it later and if anything I'll bug Ange LOL.

@SLGray I haven't yet. Figured I'd post here first to see if there was a tutorial or topic I missed xD.
@Draxion I saw this, but it isn't exactly what I was looking for. o; I wanted the music to be hidden so its like background music. And I believe that Luffy's tutorial is no longer compatible, no? I saw a bunch of topics where people asked and it didn't work for them x_x

I managed to figure it out with Skouliki's second link, though!
Only thing I can't figure out now is how to change the width and height of the video LOL.
I put the following BBCode in a Text Zone field:
Code:
[youtube]Q159t_RYKsY?rel=0&autoplay=1&loop=1&controls=0&controls=0&showinfo=0&width=1[/youtube]

I also tried using the [flash] tag, but it seems like that one doesn't support autoplay? Or was I coding it wrong LOL.

If you want the music to be hidden, all you have to do is use CSS to hide the display of that profile field from their profile view correct?

If you use the embedded code from Youtube, it has the width and height.

@Draxion
Yup! I just remembered I did something similar to this with Ange's Personal Emoticons field, so I gave it a try and it worked!

Thank you guys for your help! <3

Just one last question: Can I use the youtube tags for playlists?
