    Javascript to launch certain player in IE?

    The problem that I am having is that when I click on my Gospel rap song link in IE 7; it keeps telling me to save the file. I don't want that to happen once its on the web. When I do a test run within Firefox and I click my songs, it automatically launches quicktime player to play my mp3 songs. I want the same thing to happen if they are using Internet Explorer The software I am using is Dreamweaver.

    So is there a Javascript that will stop IE from telling the person to save the file once they click to here the mp3 file link?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, you need to configure your webserver to end the proper mimetype headers for the mp3 files. If you want to play the song in the browser, you could use a flash component to do that, instead of linking directly to the file. I recommend soundmanager2

    Like I just went to look at an example of what I am trying to do. I went to amazon music and when you want to listen to an Artist, when you click on the "Listen" it will pop up a player and play the song. I looked at the code and it was in JavaScript.

    <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
    1
    2<!--

    3 if (browserHasRadio()){

    4 document.write('<td class="listen">');var link = krexLink('/gp/recsradio/radio/B000QEIMBO/ref=pd_krex_dp_001001/102-6514833-5721704?ie=UTF8&track=001&disc=001');

    5 document.write(link + 'Listen</a><img src="http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/x-locale/detail/music/notes_clear._V47082447_.gif" width="14" alt="" align="bottom" class="icon" height="14" border="0" /></td>');}

    6//-->

    7</script>
    <td class="listen">
    <a href="javascript:amz_js_PopWin('/gp/recsradio/radio/B000QEIMBO/ref=pd_krex_dp_001001/102-6514833-5721704?ie=UTF8&track=001&disc=001',winName,winArgs);void(0);">Listen</a>
    <img class="icon" width="14" height="14" border="0" align="bottom" alt="" src="http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/x-locale/detail/music/notes_clear._V47082447_.gif"/>
    </td>

    So my webpage is simliar without the extras but, I simply want when the user clicks link(example: Respect Somethin) to my song(if they are using IE); it will pop-up a player and play the song.

    You can do that with soundmanager2.
