    I have found this to work very well on one of my websites, however I do not want it to auto start the music the page. I want to have the user start it.

    I have tried to edit the code on this line​
    <param NAME="Autostart" VALUE="1">
    I have tried changing the value = to false which didn't work, I trying to find what and where in the code to stop the auto start feature. The code below is the same that I am using I just didn't add my titles and URL's. I also was wondering if there is a place in the code to change the color of the player.


    [<!-- Multi Music Player at www.rainbow.arch.scriptmania.com/scripts/music/ -->

    document.multiplayer.FileName = songs[randsg];
    document.multiplayer.scr = songs[randsg];
    document.forms['form'].playlist.options[randsg].selected = true;
    function play(list) {
    if (playstate == 2) {
    } else {
    var snum = list.options[list.selectedIndex].value
    document.multiplayer.FileName = songs[snum];
    document.multiplayer.scr = songs[snum];
    playstate = 1;
    <!-- end code multi music player -->

    Just for those of you that might be interested setting the player to not auto start with Java Script the following code does not work.

    (0) - (-1) - (False)

    I am sure that the code is out there and someone with knowledge of Java surely knows it. I have chosen a different route to get done what I needed to do. If anyone wants to give a shot at this code and see if they can figure it out maybe it would help others that might want to use it.

    Hi Mike46,

    No, Java is a completely different language than Javascript. Also, your problem was related to the configuration of a Microsoft component embedded in a HTML document. It has nothing in common with Java.
