Using .swf files:
Swf is a flash file
To obtain such a file you either need an audio to swf converter software which can be downloaded from http://download.cnet.com/MP3-to-SWF-Converter /3000-10247_4-10462268.html but this only converts 60% of your music file unless you want to pay and register for its subscription...(you can design the shape, size and colour of the music player from the settings option on this software...
The other option is that you convert the file online with freefileconvert.com(beware it only stores the files after conversion for 12 hrs) or megaswf.com which is a payable service(not sure how many are willing to do that)
Once you have the converted file you need to obtain a url for it, for that you need to go on to myfrogbag.com (a site that uploads swf files)...If you have an error uploading, then you haven't converted the file correctly...
The url that you will get from here will have the .swf suffix and to embed it on the forum you have to paste it in between this code
Using .mp3 files:I find this easier because it does not involve converting files
(trackfile(green) is the url of the file you uploaded and should end in .mp3
title (blue)is the title you want to give to the music)
Paste your link in a new browser window and press enter, if the song plays fine then you have the right link
Now copy the above long link from the browser window in between the forum code...
[*FLASH WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=30*]*longlink*[*/FLASH*]IMP: remove the * and leave no spaces in between the two bracketsPlease be patient, the player will initially show 0.00 but will embed the song in a munite or so...
You can add as many trackfiles as you like, just add '& ' and keep adding :)
Tutorial for multiple tracks
Add &trackfile= and the link to the song with the title as you did for the first song...So, I have three tracks here: roobaroo,vele and dekho na
[*FLASH WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=30*]*longlink*[*/FLASH*]
IMP: remove the * and leave no spaces in between the two brackets
Click next >| on the player to get to the next track at any time...
Quote this post in case you are unsure of how the code looks like:)
Hope this helps
will update if I think of any other useful tips
(some added on page 3)
I've learnt this from previous tuts by Ishan and team, thanks guys!
