    Default background music that does not stutter and neither requires to rewire my entire site

    hello,

    I have a mp3 file that I'd like to integrate in my website, and used a flash button. It worked fine on my machine but can't turn it off / or on 'live'.

    BUT the biggest problem is that my entire site has been set up and I am adding the music now, is there a way to have this music integrated in the site, add stop en play (text links) without any reloads (but keeps on going) when you go to another page?

    the site is coded in css and some javascript,

    hope someone can help me out

    Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.

    Please include your code so that we can take a look at it, we can't do much without it.

    it has not much to do with 'problematic code'

    title: background music that does not stutter and neither requires to rewire my entire site

    Guess you could use a combination of flash and frames.

    Yeah, if your site doesn't use any dynamic loading now, that's about the only way to do it without having to "rewire" your site as you say.

    Of course, the usual negative effects of SEO have to come into play. So, you should really weigh if the audio is really that important to your site. In principal, I believe it is generally detrimental to overall user experience and retention (though not always).

    I actually ended up making a 'first' index page, placed an iframe in a div that has the exact dimensions as my website and placed a flash movie in the first index page and hid it. This way I don't have rewire my entire site, the website still looks normal and my client has her music, we're all happy


    thanks for all the suggestions tho, really appreciate it!

    oh and I let go of the whole turn it on or off button dilemma, she just wanted her music to play, and I would have fixed it if it wasn't hard... but I am pretty sure it is...

    Can you help me figure out how to put music on my site throughout the background? independent of which page it is on?
