Adding an audio player

Hello all. Are there any FREE audio players available anywhere that I can download, so I can add my audio files to me webpage? It has to be something simple, and the instructions for adding my files has to be simple as well, because I am a newbie. Thanx for all the help.

For dead-simple, try Maxi MP3 player.

Thanx a lot dude. Looks like a plan. I’m still kinda new at this, so I’m having a bit of trouble. I went to add the Code HTML from them (there were 4 different ones) to my page (I call my page “audio.html”), but the player did not come up (instead, there was a red X and an elongated box). Below, find the Code I added:

<object type=“application/x-shockwave-flash” data=“player_mp3.swf” width=“200” height=“20”>
<param name=“movie” value=“player_mp3.swf” />
<param name=“FlashVars” value=“mp3=test.mp3” />

Was there something I forgot to do? If you want, you can e-mail me directly at: <snip />

I appreciate all your help.

Make sure all your files are linked correctly. With the Firebug plugin you can check if any assets are not loading into the browser.

Files are fine Eruna. Thanx though.

I haven’t worked with Maxi in awhile myself (been using jPlayer so I don’t really remember all the tricks. However, you might want to look back at the [url=]player generator and see if perhaps you missed something. I think you need an xml config file, or the same config params inline. Also, are you sure the ref to the Maxi flash animation swf file is correct? It’s showing in the same directory as the file.

Thanx Ken. Still no luck. I think my status as a newbie is really showing here. I need prayer (LOL). I’ll just sit tight until I’m rescued. Web page designing can be more difficult than I imagined.

Yeah, it can be pretty tricky when you’re just starting out. Once you understand a few basic things, though, you can build on that and gain the skills before you know it.
