Streaming Audio · FORUM
THIS IS AN OLD TUTORIAL AND HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED RECENTLY. THERE ARE MUCH BETTER INSTRUCTIONS ONLINE.
Trellix and CSB come with a way to insert audio file and upload it to your website. It works for MIDI, MP3, WAV and other sounds too. You can play the sound in the background (hiding or showing the player), or just have a link to the sound.
BUT... that is NOT the fastest way to load your larger mp3 sounds. Consider Streaming audio.
You can hear MY test on this page. To hear this sound you must have a player that reads playlists. Most computers have players like a Windows Media Player, WinAmp, Real Player, etc. If your visitor is on an old system that does not have one of them, you could provide links for them to download programs.
Even streamed media may need to reconnect or re-buffer due to 2 main reasons:
the media file is encoded at a bit rate to high for the viewer’s connection (set to a speed compatible with dsl, but visitor is on dialup), or
internet congestion either caused by the viewers ISP or the net itself (consider that Sunday evenings in the USA are a prime time for this to happen).
I own the albums these pieces came from and do not file share. The music on this webpage is only a partial snippet of each of the songs noted, not the full piece as performed by the artist. Lyrics and music are property and copyrighted by their owners and I respect that! The posting of these snippets is not intended to infringe on the appropriate copyrights and the clips would be removed if requested.
