View Full Version : Music inconsistently... to embed or not to embed...

04-29-2008, 11:37 PM
Hi again.

Artistic guy wants music samples on the web page. When I simple upload the sample onto the server and put a pretty button for the link, sometimes I get a player, sometimes the computer just sings to me w/o any controls. Sometimes it just downloads the music and sits there. Unfortunately, the same happens when I use the "onclick playSounds" behavior in DW.

What is the right way of going about this (other than Flash)? Is the Object tag deprecated? Should I use the Object tag with the Embed tag? Should I forget it? (HAHAHA)

my page: http://www.felicite.ca/sample.html
another page that inspired this: http://www.cadenzaensemble.com/CAD_e/CADsoundbites_e.html

Thanks for your time & in advance for your help.

Why don't you want to use Flash? it works well for this kind of thing.

You're right, and I wish I hadn't been adament on not using Flash, but I gave away the store when I agreed to do this site, and felt that I had to hold something back. As it is, the site is bi-lingual with every page in each language...perfect joy, eh?

Maybe I should just give in & do it in Flash too?
