To play more MP3's than 1:
Edit the text file

1. For each additional mp3 that you wish to play copy this entire line:
&track1name=I want to Love You Forever&

2. Change the track name to 2 or the next track number. Also add your song number 2's title. Your track 2 line would look like this:
&track2name=My 2nd song's title&

3. Next you would look up in the variables and change the number of songs from 1 to 2 here:
&total=2&

4. Save the file. You keep doing this until you have listed all of your mp3's.

Things to Remember:

Remember to save your file.

Make sure you keep the & sign at the end of each variable.

Make sure your song titles don't have the & symbol. If they do the title will not display correctly and could prevent the player from working correctly.


Adding Your Own Music

Once you find an mp3 music loop that you would like to use rename the mp3 file to track1.class. This music loop must have a sample rate of 44.1khz or when you play the song it will play too fast or too slow. Replace the track1.class file that came with the music player with your own mp3 music file. If your computer asks you if you want to over write the existing track1.class file, select yes.

If you want to play more than one mp3, save your mp3s in the following fashion: track2.class, track3.class, etc. inside of the tracks folder.

If you run into any problems with renaming your mp3 file, rename the mp3 file on your web server. In some instances computers will rename the mp3 file to track1.class.mp3. You'll know that you have a problem because the player will not load the song.



FTPing Your Website

=======================================
Now you are ready to ftp your new website to the Internet. Upload all files to your web hosting space except for the player_readme.html file. For instructions on ftping to your website, please contact your web host. Now you can view the music player. Go to your domain for example, www.yourdomain.com/music.html to view the music player. That's it!
