hello!!

if i like to have a background music on a page and i want it invisible as if its playing out of nowhere and it plays endlessly.. how is it done??

what step should i take and what facts should i know?? um.. this is my first attempt on attaching sounds to a page..

also how to make sure its compatible on all browsers?? some say to embed it into a SWF file to have consistency on all browsers..

my file format is mp3 and has a size 2.4MB.. is it too big?? if it is.. how to convert it into a lower one??

please.. help!! my dreamweaver version is only 6.1..

this is a naff trick. It gives a very amature impression and not everyone has your taste in music

if you must do this embed your music in a small flash movie with no visuals

you need to tweak this mp3 to get the size down

get some mp3 editing freeware/shareware app to do this

resample at a lower bit rate and output to mono would reduce it down by half

trial and error to get the file size you want then its into flash to do the rest
