There are several ways to place music, midi’s, mp3 and wav files on a webpage. First you need to know the name of the music file you wish to use. If you don’t yet have any music files, you can find free music and sounds to download including christian music, 80’s music, pop, rock and many others on our music sounds page.
Music on choice.
The first html music code gives your visitor the choice if they want to hear the music or not.
<a href=”yourmidname.mid”>Click here to play music </a>
Make sure you upload the music file to your server. Your visitor will need something to play the music on such as Real Player or Windows Media Player for the music to play.
Website Music plays automatically on page load. This is cross browser compatible.
Place this code in the <head> of your html document so music starts automatically when the page loads. Your visitor has no choice to hear it or not and there is no option to turn it off. Using the “embed” command makes your music compatible with Netscape.
To embed music on your website with a shut off button.
You can embed music into your page so it starts automatically when someone views your page and have a small image where your visitor can turn it off.
Place the html music code where you want the button to appear on your page.
Embed music with console.
Instead of the button, you can have a small console with on and off switches on your page such as this one below.
To make the music play automatically the parameter is Autostart=”TRUE”
You can put “FALSE” instead of “TRUE” so the person visiting your page will have to click on the play button for it to start.
