View Full Version : Help With Background Music!

11-26-2005, 08:12 PM
Alrighty, I've recently made a website for a minor hockey team in my area. I have music in the background, but every time I click a page (which opens in a pop-up) the music stops!
How can I make the music keep going once the pop-up is opened?

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

EDIT: Sorry about this, I think I put my topic in the wrong section... *newbie*

You can't do it with regular html you would need a flash player. Once the window with the music loses focus it stops, this is the default behavior of using the embed and a normal song, but if you do it in flash, it should keep playing because html can't control flash. Do you require for the music to start automatically? That automatic start makes the page load slower and its a bit annoying. Can you post a link to your site? I can make you a flash player that has stop, play, volume up, volume down buttons. It won't start automatically though if thats what you want.

It's only a midi clip that plays. It's hidden and starts automatically, but I wouldn't mind a fancy flash player! The only thing about it that bugs me is when the music stops playing. I would post the link, but due to privacy issues I won't.

Do you have Flash MX or Flash 8? Can you pm me the location of the midi? What colors do you want the player in?

No, I don't have any flash player programs.. I'd like the player to be in black and orange. Mostly black to match the background.
You're really going to do this? This is awesome! :D
