Wow! Now that was incredible! My first multimedia post on DCTS and my inbox was deluged with a flood, nay, TORRENT of people asking how I was able to integrate such a tiny, effective little mp3 player into my site.
I was being jostled! JOSTLED, I tell you!
Well my friends, you asked so I shall tell you. Its very simple, the player is PLAYTAGGER by del.ici.us
All you have to do is paste the following code once, anywhere, into your blog's HTML:
and that's all. Remove the </script> if you're getting HTML errors. Now, any hyperlinks that point to mp3 files will automatically be prepended with a blue arrow. Click on the arrow to play, and it changes to a red square and the word "playing". Click on the square to stop, click on the word "playing" to pause.
It does have one limitation, the mp3 must be encoded at 11025 Hz, 22050 Hz, or 44100 Hz. Anything else will sound like the chipmunks.
Here are some more music samples, old TVOntario themesongs, graciously provided by TVO Kids' Shows.
Enjoy everyone. As always, keep having fun.
