Was just wondering. I have seen a millon sites that play music with the option to turn it on or off.

My question is this: If I were going to do something like this, is the EMBED method my only choice? I have been looking for some documentation on this and what platforms this would work on.

Obviously I would have to preload the file then just have it loop through.

Now my other question is this: In these sites that play music, I have also seen graphic EQ's. I realize that this is mostly a flash thing but I was wonder if there were any other options?

The EQ isn't that big of a deal but I would like to have my site play music in the background. Just would like to have an EQ as well.

Thanks in advance.

BG music is foul. Use Flash.

Thanks for the tip lallous.

Weedah, I don't have Flash and don't really plan on buying it.

I am just doing an "experiment" type page. A good friend of mine is a techno DJ type guy and I would like to use some of his music on a page.

Thanks for the response.

I'd link directly to it but it needs to be in the right frames.
Go to my site, then the INFO section and then click on one of the eyes on the baby(Me 3months old + photoshop) you'll get to a weird weird secret page , it uses sound effects and such using another iframe I think, anywho could be handy for you. I remember ages ago , IE only supported <bgsound> and NS only supported <embed> , now I think IE5+NS6 both use <bgsound> not too sure, but if you want to change music , I think you can rewrite the embedding code to a DIV, but I dont know how compatable that is.

As far as I can remember you use loop=-1 for infinite loop and autostart=true in the tag for <bgsound + maybe <embed

And here is something I made YEARS ago , is so stupid, its similar to the secret section above: http://indigo.ie/~billfitz/ebaby.htm

The sound features on that only work in IE4 + NS4 , nothing else.

As for an equalizer, I dont think so, but maybe if you have some kind of plugin or something. I have seen this before, I assumed it was flash.

It had background music which you could turn off .. I simple had a frame(not in the link above) which was one of two pages playing.htm and stopped.htm.
