MP3 on the Website
Can you put MP3 music on a website...?
I have the option to play midi but would prefer MP3..
If it's possible, can someone give me the syntax please... Thanx

it's not possible to play MP3's on websites, nor should u ever. MP3s are large, between 3-6 megs on average, which would take the average 56.6 kbs modem around 1/2 hour to download. as a rule of thumb, u should keep pages below 50kb, including images and sound if u have them. there's a reason why very few pages have midi's even, as surfers are an impatient lot.
on the other hand, if u have a good reason for wanting to put up mp3s as sound (for example, the people viewing your website are all on your company intranet), then u will have to convert the mp3s to wav, which will be around 30-40 mbs. thats why, even when people put sound up, they use midi's. hope that helps

Thanx for the reply - I understand all that you say...
I needed/wanted to place a much shortened song "intro" onto my site.. I can change MP3 to WAV but still need the syntax, is it the same as embedding a midi..?Glenvern

yes actually there is a way to play mp3's off of your website all you need to do is upload the mp3 to your website and the code for it is <embed width="128" height="128" src="http://www.yoursite.com/yoursong.mp3"><noembed>Your

just replace yoursite with your site and your song with your song only thing i find wrong with this is that users need to press play to play
