Hi, I'm just asking for some advice if I were to insert some background song/music/audio into one of my sites, What is the best way to do it?

1.HTML
2.Flash
3.Javascript

What I mean by best is actually, least interruption when loading the page. Thanks in advance :lol:

I wouldn't put any music at all. You can traffic that way. I listen to music all the time over the net and if I go to a site with background music, it conflicts with my music, so I leave the site right away.

Not only that, there is no way that you can pick music that all viewers will appreciate.

I would use Flash, have it streaming and let the user choose to play it or not.

i agree w/digital on the method, but definitely make an option obvious for how to stop the music if you do choose to add it to your site

:| I agree but still it's nice I thought to have some bg music. I got to this website last week, and it's embedded with music, I'm not sure what he uses. So I modified my personal website. He's like a singer(not famous). Basically, my personal website doesn't promote anything. It has some of my pictures and I'm going to include a link that is going to open a new browser when the user clicks, it will display about my service or products. What products, not really sure yet although I have some in mind. I'm also developing a logo for my retail website. It's tough cuz I'm new at photoshop. Do you always have your music on?, Don. What do you use to play the music in your computer? Windows Media Player ? (juz curious) Thank you. :)

Thank you very much, DM. I can take your word and be not indefinitely use a Flash. Currently, I have a mp3 embedded by using HTML. It seems very slow and doean't look special. I'm going to change it.

Hmm, obvious to stop the player. And as DM said, let user choose to play or not... Yeah. O.k, That's awesome advice. My current mp3 plays automatically :mrgreen: . Gonna change it.
Thanks man.

George L: I have my sound card in my PC connected to a Carver Preamp, Amp and custom built speakers. The cable cost me $10 to make the connection. I use my LiteOn DVD/CD RW to play CDs and I listen to various non commercial radio stations over the net using Wimamp. The system rocks.

That's why I don't want to go to any sites that have music, even if I can stop the music. The only way I would do that is if I made an index page that had Enter With Intro and Enter Without Intro. That way the user can decide before some stupid song that I don't want to hear starts.

What song were you going to use?
