View Full Version : Please Help: Embedded Audio - same window

09-16-2005, 11:37 PM
Hi all,

I need help , please!!

I have a php script that generates an listing of all my audio files. This is for online streaming and downloads.

The listing works and it displays the filename , date and last modified.
Visitors then have and option to either download or play .

Both options are working but I want to streamline the play option so that instead of opening a new window it must activitate an embedded player at the bottom of the listing so as to emulate a jukebox.

I already have the variables defined for the topic selection : $topic . So this part is sorted out. The only thing I need is for javascript to then pass that variable to an embedded player , in the same document. Get that.

Can javascript do this ? Any ideas?

I'm short on PHP and embedded sounds but, if the embedded player has an attribute or parameter that needs to be set javascript can probably do it. Something like:

document.getElementById('idOfEmbedCodeGoesHere').nameOfParameterToSet=$topicThe colored parts need to be replaced with the actual names used on the page. To assign an id to the embed code do like:

<embed id="player">

Thanks for your quick reply, I haven't tried that yet and will let you know if it works.

In the meantime, keep those solutions rolling in.
