Question by Rhys P: How do i add a music player to a website to play mp3s in Dreamweaver CS4?
A local band has asked me to design a website for them, they would like it to have a music player where you can select the track you want to play and click the play button and the music will play, i have never used anything like this before but would like to learn. im using dreamweaver cs4 to design the website and have the music tracks stored as mp3s waiting to be added.

There are a few different inline players, JW Player is very easy to implement. You’ll need to FTP some files to the site and add some JavaScript calls to the HEAD of your page.

If you find that too difficult to implement you might want to look at http://www.flashmp3player.org/download.html

However it does have links back to their website.

I should add that both of these are dependent on the user having flash installed, but both fail gracefully if they do not.
