if you're talking about addint background music then dont do it

background music on websites is one of the worst things you can do to a site

if someone wants to listen to music when they visit your site, they'll already have it playing through winamp or something

First, use the [ code ] tags.

Secondly, adding music to a website is lame.

By the way, I am a web developer, before you start feeling I am being rude.

First of all, not every client will be able to utilise the content. Second of all, many people listen to music on their own computers - it is quite inconsiderate of you to force music upon them. Thirdly, the file will have to be served to each of your users... If you force them to stream an MP3 you are going to be using a lot of bandwidth.

That said, is the music you are trying to force unwittingly upon your readers an mp3 or what? Generally, websites with music use MIDI because the file size is small and the old school sound is kind of fun.

I recommend you don't, anyway. Auto-playing MIDI files on websites are an abomination.

Yeah, you have to be able to upload files to a server; even if it's not the one your blog is hosted on. There are sites that will host a file for you. In that case, you'd use an absolute URL like so:

<embed src="https://proxy.mind-media.com/proxy.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.somesite.com%2Fmymusic.mid" width=145 height=55 autostart=true>
<noembed>
<bgsound src="https://proxy.mind-media.com/proxy.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.somesite.com%2Ffilename.mid">
</noembed>

From Eric S. Raymond's HTML-Hell page:
Quote:

background MIDI, Flash, Shockwave, and other abominations
Background music takes forever to load, and isn't portable. Flash and Shockwave take forever to load, aren't portable, and are proprietary formats that lock you into a single vendor. When you insult your viewers with crap like this, don't expect them back.



As a knight of the net, I must urge you to please not degrade our medium with crap.

A blog is a far cry from a site...  But terminology aside, try adding meaningful content. :thumbup:

Damn you and your beating me to the punch.

Admittedly, that HTML Hell page has some things that are debatable:
- changing the colors of visited hyperlinks (most users don't care, a well-designed navigation system should not be relying on text hyperlinks anyway)
- Flash/Shockwave: Yes, they're proprietary technologies. Yes, they take a long time to load on dialup. They have uses in websites aimed at youth culture such as band sites, experimental art sites, etc. Not to mention that there's now an opensource way to create Flash.

There's no open source player. It's a proprietary system. It sucks. Period.

The web is meant to be accessable from any system - not just yours.

On the hyperlinks color thing, you didn't read closely enough or far enough. He's talking about when the site has multi-colored text, especially where they use the standard hyperlink color and change the hyperlink color to something obscure, even indistinguishable from other site content, etc. This problem is compounded when people don't follow good hyperlink practices.

Obviously, if your site changes the link color to something NOT used in normal content, there is no issue as it is easily distinguisable form normal content.
