JukeBox on a webpage
« on: August 30, 2004, 04:30:58 PM »
Hello guys,

I have a webdesigner developing my site, it looks good.

My site is mainly going to be an audio site were i have clips of orignal music that you can listen to.

They will be MP3 files, i wanted to know if it is possible to have a jukebox style mp3 player embeded in the site.

So instead of scolling up and down the page you can just click to each sample song in the jukebox instead..

Is this possible and what do i need to do to give my webdesigner the heads up.

Any info will help if you have a site to show me please post it.

Thanks
Ty Blak

I created one in Flash that works great. More compatible than any media player.

I used Wildform programs to create my jukebox.

You can transform all of the mp3's to flash and then put them in a flash movie.

You can do the same thing with flash and just call the mp3, but someone with more experience with flash is going to have to help you with that.

Will this allow one to let visitors listen to music on their site without violating any copyright laws?  I've been looking for a way to share music through my site.

If the music is copyrighted and you dont have permission to distribute it, then any way you do it is illegal.

Hmmm... I was thinking of something like streaming audio... does that violate copyright laws?

If the audio is copyrighted, and you don't have permission to rebroadcast it, then yes.

Okay... that's too bad though.  I love to share music interests with others, but just listing names of songs doesn't compare to listening to them.   :(
