Hi all

A lot of our members have been asking about adding music to our posts and ATs, so here is a tutorial for you...There might be an easier and better way to do this but this is the best I know and have used it several timesSmile

Using .swf files:

Swf is a flash fileTongue

To obtain such a file you either need an audio to swf converter software which can be downloaded from    /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 it only stores the files after conversion for 12 hrs) or which is a payable service(not sure how many are willing to do thatLOL)

Once you have the converted file you need to obtain a url(hotlink) for it, for that you need to go on to (a site that uploads swf files)...If you have an error uploading, then you haven't converted the file correctlyEmbarrassed...

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

[*FLASH WIDTH=130 HEIGHT=45*]*swf link*[*/FLASH*]

IMP: remove the * and leave no spaces in between the two brackets


Using .mp3 files:

I find this easier because it does not involve converting files

Upload your .mp3 files on either or
  (Copy the direct hotlink)

This is the music player :


This is how your long url should be

(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 linkSmile

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 brackets


Please be patient, the player will initially show 0.00 but will embed the song in a minute 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

Example Link:

[*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 helpsSmile
will update if I think of any other useful tips
(some added on page 3, 99, 121)
I've learnt this from previous tuts by Ishan and team, thanks guys!

I've tried this it embeds the player but the shockwave keeps crashing. 

EDIT- Dw I have figured it out. It works now. Thanks for the guide
