    Whats involved in coding this music player?

    Hi folks,

    Not sure where else to post this but here goes.

    I have a really good idea but not sure how to go about coding it. Ive just began a degree course in Software development to learn to code.

    What i need to figure out is whats involved in coding something like a soundcloud player. i.e

    https://soundcloud.com/theeconomist/...just-different

    Where people upload sounds and they can be embedded into a player to be embedded somewhere else etc.

    What languages are involved in this player would you say?

    Thanks in advance.

    soundcloud uses flash if i'm not mistaken.

    if i were to code something similar, i would use jPlayer since i'm lazy and to make it look cool i would make that graph thing in place of progress bar. you should be able to make graph like that from raw audio file (convert mp3 or whatever u have to raw audio using sox and then just read it byte by byte plotting your graph)

    hey i forgot about dewplayer http://www.alsacreations.fr/dewplayer-en.html

    if audio is all you need, then i find this easier and faster to implement.
    it's flash, but it provides javascript control interface, so you can place it hidden div or something like that and make your own gui
    and cool thing about this one is that it throttles file downloads so it's less taxing for your server
