    Beginner question: adding music to start on opening

    Jay_in_Paris
      Hello,
      This is my first post. I would like to add music to my home page so the music starts playing when the home page opens. Could someone point me in the right direction? I have contribute 3.
      Thanks in advance,
      Jay in Paris

          Hi Jay

          You can reference an earlier post by searching for the following.
          "Topic Title embedding MP3 Created On 02/08/2005 10:49:17 PM"

          In short, you will need to insert Flash via a SWF file to allow the site to play music or your other option is to insert a movie, like a .mov clip which wil play in the browser if the user has Quicktime. Users will still need the player installed locally on their computers to play any of the types of format you choose.
          In Contribute 4, your options will include audio enclosures, such as podcasts.

            Hi Jay,

            Just a word of caution - make sure you're not infringing anyone's copyright when you add music to your site, otherwise you could end up in trouble with the relevant authorities.
