    Hi all,

    Is it at all possible to add music (maybe a CD track) to a page in Front Page.

    Hi M,

    Sorry to ask what may appear to be such a stupid question, but can Cd tracks be converted to MP3 files?

    A word of advice though CC, you'll have to get the permission of whoever owns the copyright to the songs you wish to upload. Otherwise, you could get sued by the BPI.

    Use Cdex, very nice and easy.

    But like said above make sure what you're doing is legal. :)

    1. It's the RIAA
    2. Our friend CC, according to his profile, lives in the UK, hence the British Phonographic Industry. He will not get sued by the RIAA, it's be the BPI who'll bring the legal action, as far as I'm aware.

    ;)

    CC,

    You can put any music file (.wav .mid .mp3 etc) by (in Normal view) right clicking the page, then Page properties. Under backround sound option, you can choose the file.

    HTML CODE: (something I did on a test)
    <bgsound src="../../My%20Music/Straight%20No%20Chaser/Indiana/Straight%20No%20Chaser%20-%20SNC%202000.mp3" loop="0">

    %20 indicates a space in the filename and location (directory)

    Forgive my ignorance...

    1. Is it possible to listen to MP3's in Windows Media Player, or will people have to download Real Player or a different program.
    2. How would you play your music if you don't want it as background.

    Got some new work and haven't been around much. It's nice to be back!

    OK, I guess the answers are:

    You can listen to MP3's in Windows Media Player.

    You just hyperlink to your music and it plays.

    I use Netfirms for my hosting. 4.95 per month. Anything better out there??

    1. You can listen to MP3s with any audio player since it's the standard form of music files. If you have clicked on a link for music, it should open up your defaulted media player.

    2. Set the file as a link.

    (i'm assuming we are still talking about webpage stuff right?)
