View Full Version : Auto Resume with Embedded Music

I am simply trying to put autoresume on this media player for a website and for the life of me can not get it to work. How do I place autoresume on without adding a playlist? Below is the code I have for the flash player. Thanks!

I honestly don't know what you are talking about, and this code is only to put the player on the page and doesn't help me figure out how it works.

What did you do to get the player, who made it, a link if possible, and explain what you mean by auto resume?

It was done by a free lance programmer a long time ago and the guy that wants me to do it has no contact with the programmer so I am on my own. It is not my programming. By autoresume I mean while a person goes from page to page on the site they music is constant it doesn't restart with every page.

The current music used is through that music.swf file I posted, I do have the mp3 for the song though.

Well I can't help without seeing the code inside of the Flash file. If it is a custom player, then there is little one can do without changing something.

You could investigate another audio player online, there are many options.

I also challenge you to rethink the usage of playing music on the page, as it is a big usability issue. A lot of people get confused and dislike when music starts to play when they didn't push a Play button. Perhaps you want it to be optional music only, thats my advice to anyone with auto music players.
