View Full Version : Music not Midi

03-21-2003, 03:55 PM
I want to add music to my site, not a midi.

I don't have the music and need to download it - what would it be called and how would I add it to my site?

OK, to get the music, you need to download music files. There are many, many (many) diferent types of music files; not all of them can be used in websites. Two very common types that can are WAV (files that end in ".wav") and MP3 (files that end in ".mp3").

So - search for those sort of files. Be aware that music is often copyright, and if you use someone else's music without their persission, they can take legal action.

To use these files on your website, you can use the <embed> tag. A reference can be found here:


Hope that helps.

As far as finding music, WinMX (http://www.winmx.com/) can be quite useful...
