Embed MP3 Files Into Your Website

You have an MP3 file (a podcast, a song of your band, a lecture) and you want to share it with the visitors of your site. You can just put a link to the MP3 and let people download it or you can include it as an object and let the browser play it with a plug-in like QuickTime (and most of the times also crash the browser). Most people want to preview the audio and not wait until it downloads completely. You can play a partial MP3 file in audio player, but many people aren't aware of that.

But there's another away: a Flash player that allows you to pause and rewind the MP3. It's like an audio version of Google Video or YouTube, with the difference that the file is hosted on your server (or on another server). While there are many solutions based on Flash, this is the one I like the most. It's a modified version of Odeo player, that's used to play podcasts on odeo.com:



You just have to replace [MP3 file address] with the actual address.

Here you can see how it looks (in this audio, Marissa Mayer talks about innovation at Google):



Update (April 28th, 2010): Odeo.com is down and the player no longer works. "Odeo will be down for maintenance and site improvements. We will restore service as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience," says the site. Another player you can try until odeo.com is back online is Google Reader's player.

  1. How can I adjust Volume and size? If I reduce the size, it goes to align right.

    ReplyDelete
  2. The object scales if you reduce the size. You can align it like you do with any other tag. One easy way to center it is by using the center tag or by setting the align attribute to a div tag.

    You can't change the volume.

  3. Great addon for my site!
    Just where can I host MP3 files?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Where you host your site :)

    Or you can use Google Page Creator (100 MB space, 10 MB max size per file). Remember not to upload copyrighted files.

  5. Thx alex!

    Coding okie now, but still cant hear any sound.I added my song link between two []code properly. Is there anything to change? Need to setup the Valid_Sample_rate?

    For Anon,

    Either You can use www.fileden.com for your song file. It allow you to upload 500 Mb space and 2 Gb bandwidth. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I am, in fact, using Google Page Creator. I wasn't aware I could add files right on the site.
    Thanks, both of you!

    ReplyDelete
  7. >> NLS

    Just type the URL without quotes and urlencoded.

    ReplyDelete
  8. If you know the duration of the audio, add audio_duration=[duration], like this valid_sample_rate=true& external_url=[MP3 file address]&audio_duration =[duration], where duration is a real number expressed in seconds.

    This way the slider will know its range of values and it will work better.

    ReplyDelete
  9. how do you make the file plau automatically? (auto start) thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ive tried throwing this on myspace but it doesnt seem to work. Ive added it to my own website but that works fine. Any idea if myspace have a block on it or something?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have the same question as nana...how do you make it auto-start?

    ReplyDelete
  12. For autostart:

    add auto_play=true to the list of parameters.

    auto_play=true&valid_sample_rate=true&...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Awesome, that works just fine...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Auto start, Loop song, Control volume example...

    autostart="true" loop="true" volume="50%"

  15. I have an mp3 file that i have saved with a lower sample rate of 22550 i think, at 48kbps.

    I tried to use this player and the audio plays at twice its intended speed.

    What should i do to eliminate this problem ?

    ReplyDelete
  16. why doesnt it work on firefox???

    ReplyDelete
  17. Please help me!

    How do i write the MP3 file's address?
    (You just have to replace [MP3 file address] with the actual address)??

    The MP3 file is in the same catalog as the "Index.htm".
    It is still an external_url?

    Thanks in advance
    pegy22

    ReplyDelete
  18. Copy the code I provided and replace [MP3 file address] with the full address of the MP3 file (e.g.: http://www.mywebsite.com/files/podcast.mp3).

    ReplyDelete
  19. Myspace uses javascript to disable EMBED tag. its still usable on the blog page though if you want to do that.. That's what I did.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I tried the XSPF music player but it doesn't have the slider. This one has the slider but the volume control is missing. Is there any player with both features?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wonderful! I've been looking for something like this. Where can I find a description of all available parameters? Also, I want to script the player from a web page, so that different buttons (not in the player) will start up the player at different times, preferably auto-stopping at selected times. Is that possible?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Is there one with another button colour? I like the player but not the pink...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Please add auto play,volume and give me the code.The entire player code.I just don't seem to get it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes, definitely - the pink is just too pink... any chance you'd know of other colour?

    ReplyDelete
  25. If you don't like pink, there is a darker version. You just have to replace gray with black in the second line of the code. Here's how it looks:

  28. this is so cool! it took me so long to find something like this.

    my only problem is that i want it to loop. please tell me this player can do that!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Really great - thanks for offering this to the world. I appreciate your sharing of information.

    ReplyDelete
  30. hmm, i tried that but it doesn't seem to be working...

    am i doing something wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Please contact me at support@boomp3.com, I will help you.

    ReplyDelete
  32. is there a way to get the player to start from the beginning? it seems to leave off where it was the previous time i accessed my page. thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you so much.
    It works for me.
    Perfect.
    Thanks again for sharing it to the world.
    I very much appreciated.

  34. hey, my song keeps getting stuck, as if it hasnt fully loaded yet. its on auto play. how do I fix this?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great Post, Helpful Information

    ReplyDelete
  36. agh! ok i love this and it works beautifully, except adding the two suggestions for autostart above did not work. i have this on my myspace profile, and once i enter the code above and go back to edit it, it changes to something else (with an actual list with param names). what do i add to that list for autostart?

    thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Not sure about latest versions of FF but autostart=1 use to work (while autostart=true did not). IE accepted either value.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Just curious - is this basically ripping off ODEO's player? I love it, because it solves a problem for me, but I don't want to use it (with students) if it's sort of hijacking... I know ODEO is free -- do they care if their player is used to play audio not stored on ODEO?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Nevermind -- I found my answer. They tell you you can set a custom feed. Thanks much -- this really helps me solve a problem.

    http://odeo.com/listen/widget

    ReplyDelete
  40. Does anyone know of any solutions similar to this or the boomp3.com player where you can modify it to remove the "ODEO" logo and customize it a bit.... basically I just need a semi nice looking streaming mp3 player such as this.

    ReplyDelete
  41. wait... how do you loop it?

    ReplyDelete
  42. is there a way to validate this as html 4.01 or xhtml 1 ???

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks for the tip! I used this player on my blog, and it works really well. Is there a way to display the song name and artist in the player. I would love to hear more tips about this.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi, I came across this trying to add music to my site. The player works fine and just as advertised, but I cannot seem to get the autostart to work. I've added it before I copied and pasted from your site but it just isn't working. Do you have the full code or can you advise me where to add it so that it functions? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  45. whats the code if you want autoplay as the page uploads

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've tried adding this to my MySpace blog but it isn't working (although soomeone said it should on the blog page). Is there something I'm missing?

    ReplyDelete
  47. i found this on google as a quick and easy way to embed mp3s. it looks good and works great and best of all it took like 1 minute to add, thanks for the tips Ionut Alex. Chitu, you're the best!

    ReplyDelete
  48. This was very very helpful. Glad I came across this suggestion. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm now using this and it works GREAT! I've read all your posts and they're all VERY helpful...thanks guys!


    QUESTION: I want to load multiple songs so that they will play one after another. Would anyone lend any advice????????????

    ReplyDelete
  50. Is everybody allowed to use this player, or are therer any restrictions or rules to mention?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hello, I did this but it doesn't actually play. Did I do something wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm trying to embed the code but the slider doesn't move and I am getting no sound can anyone help?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks--worked like a charm. :) I was having glitches with quicktime playing only a part of the mp3, going to it directly. Top search result, and well deserved.

    ReplyDelete
  54. im actually pretty good with HTML, but i didn't think to remove the [ ] from around the mp3 url (and not use " " surrounding it). just thought i'd add that to the discussion in case anyone else is an idiot like me!

    ReplyDelete
  55. fantastic. this helps a great deal. thank you

  57. I spent ONE LONG DAY looking for something like this. THANK YOU so much for being more generous, less greedy and market-oriented than the other folks offering players that myspace takes right off! I do, though, have the same question as everyone else: the auto-start and loop codes don't work. Where, in the list of values, do they belong??
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Just used it for my site. Its excellent, thank you to the creator(s).

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thanks, I couldn't get the odeo player to work but i found that if you remove the odeo url and replace it with the url location of the mp3, it will play using quicktime instead... the only downside is that anyone who doesn't have quicktime on their computer won't hear the mp3 playing.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hast thou slain the JabberwockAugust 21, 2007 at 8:24 PM

    This looks like a great idea but I do not want to link to odeo.com. Nothing against that site but mine is of a religious nature and I don't want to link to secular stuff.

    Is there a way to suppress the link?

  61. How can i make my music downloadable on my Web Site?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Thanks for this info. A stupid question. Is there a way to replace the URL by a link to a local mp3 file?

    ReplyDelete
  63. No. You must upload the file somewhere. Fortunately, there are many sites that provide file hosting for free (for example, Google Page Creator).

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hey, i am trying to put this on my piczo but i create a new embed text line and add the text to it then replace it with my MP3 file that looks like this, E:\Sum 41 - Fat Lip.mp3 when i hit PLAY it just says STOPPED. I tried to shorten it to Fat Lip.mp3 and it says "loading from fat lip.mp3" and it doesnt work. if you hit puse it says STOPPED again. Help me please!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Seems like it works for many of them, but my mp3 file plays very fast like fast forwarding. Does anyone know how to control this? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  66. The too-fast problem is caused by using the wrong "sampling rate" when converting from another format to mp3.

    The following link explains the problem and offers a possible solution:

    Explanation of wrong speed problem

    Another solution that worked for me: Get the freeware program Switch from www.nchsoftware.com . (From their home page look under "audio tools".) You don't need the Plus version--the freeware will do.

    Switch has an option to output MP3, but don't use it. Instead, output to a WAV file. In the Encoder Options, set Format to MPEG Layer 3, and set attributes to 56 kBit/22050 Hz.

    Run the conversion. Then rename the output WAV file to have extension MP3.

    That should do it.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Is this still valid? I've just tried embedding it on my site but it won't play. It doesn't seem to play on your site either - or is it just on my end that it's not working?

    Darlene

    ReplyDelete
  68. Yes, it still works. Probably Odeo was down or just very slow.

    ReplyDelete
  69. You guys probably already covered this, but you want to make sure you delete the brackets after you paste in the URL.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Try wwww.boomp3.com! boomp3 host ur mp3 and it also gives you the embedded link to place on ur blog! IT works well on my blogger! For more details log on to http://east2westmoviez.blogspot.com!
    Hola back!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Reference my Sept 11 comment. I left out an important step.

    You will need a second free program from NCH Software. It is called Stamp. When you install Stamp, it will offer to install other programs as well. Uncheck all of them.

    Run Stamp and open your WAV file that you created with Switch and renamed to an MP3. Fill in any or all of the fields on the screen, and click "stamp file".

    Now you have a flash-compatible MP3 file.

  73. question me an answerNovember 14, 2007 at 7:32 AM

    Question: I have seen Google Page Creator mentioned in a couple of comments as a place to host mp3 files. But all I can find on GPC is an editor to create HTML web pages. How do you upload an MP3 to GPC?

    ReplyDelete
  77. What a wonderful tool!!! thank you so much - I was having problems getting SOME of my converted WAV to MP3 files to play with the audio/mpeg embed code and I'm using free mediajoin (which is so easy) but after putting this code into the website, the 'bad' mp3's played with no problem - so until I figure out why they are bad in the first code source, I'll use this nifty little program. MY QUESTION is when I right click on the player and it says download - I click that - it does - but the only thing that shows up in realplayer is the player icon - it doesn't play the audio file...how come and how do I fix that? thanks so much!!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. hello,
    I have tried everything you recommend..but the little thing won't play.
    it says stopped.
    Please help me?

  79. Here is a quick snipit of code from my site. Works perfectly and took about 5 minutes to implement. I'm running PHP with a MySql db in the background to dynamically build a music page that feeds this player. This made is so much easier....(m-bed = embed below)

    below $songURL is something like www.domain.com/music/song.mp3


    src='http://www.odeo.com/flash/audio_player_standard_black.swf' quality=high width=300 height=52 allowScriptAccess=never wmode=transparent type='application/x-shockwave-flash' flashvars='auto_play=true&valid_sample_rate=true&external_url=$songURL' pluginspage='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer'

  87. No, this is a very simple player and it wasn't created for playlists. Odeo has a player for playlists, but I don't think you can use it with audio files that aren't hosted by Odeo.

    ReplyDelete
  106. This may be completely obvious, but it took me a bit to figure it out. If your mp3 wont play check and see if you deleted the "[ ]" braces around your url for the mp3.

    ie: url=http://www.website/folder/song.mp3"

    I can play this IE7 and stop it as well but in Firefox3 when I add the value auto_start=true, the music just starts automatically. If I don't add the value of auto_start or type the value as false then the music does not play or do anything. I need to be enable it so that the viewer has the choice of starting and stopping when they want to hear it.

  133. This tip about an MP3 player for your web site was great. I'm still continually amazed at what you can find with a Google search.

  143. Thank you very much for sharing this code... I have one little problem though... I'm trying to use this for a page for a group of people to play name that tune..so I only want part of the song to play...I added the duration as you mentioned but this doesn't stop the song..it just keep playing... You mention that the duration is to be in seconds which is fine..but do you just put a number there or do you have to specify for eg. 20seconds... I hope someone can help me with this as I need this info asap...

  159. i have a google site...where do i paste da code in>??? :S

    ReplyDelete
  160. You get the url by uploading your music to a certain website, the website i used was filefreak.com, they give you a "direct link" url which you then just paste where it asks for it in the player. Many file sharing websites allow you to do this.

  173. hi to all of you.
    i use the google sites, and at the moment when i edit the html, the player works fine, but at the moment when i save the code, and refresh the site, i have no player on the site.
    what is interessant, i go back to edit the site/html, and this part is no more there.

    1. can you change the colour? I can get pink (gray!) and grey (black) but are there any others that we can use?
    2.Did anyone answer the question on if we can add a volume control?

    Thanks

  179. hey dude!
    ive been using this method to embed mp3 files for a long time!

    thing is i think that the website of the player might be down now, it might've happened yesterday, cause it no longer works...

    got any other idea?

    thanks!

  180. "Odeo is down for maintenance

    We are offline for Database Maintenance Associated with the site upgrade. We will restore service as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience."

    odeo.com

    ReplyDelete
  181. Now why would the player not work if it is a script?

    ReplyDelete
  182. Because it's hosted by odeo.com, which is still down for maintenance.

    ReplyDelete
  183. This is perplexing, though, if you could kindly explain. This is a flash player embedded script, why does it have to "phone home" to Odeo to play?, The files are located on another server. And if Odeo updates is there a possibility that this player will not work? That would suck for me. BTW does anyone know of any flash embedded player, one could either purchase or for free that would rely so-lee on it's own without Odeo?

    ReplyDelete
  184. I don't think it has anything to do with Odeo being down for maintenance. I've also noticed that the player doesn't show up, yet the code is still there. The reason I don't think it's Odeo website related is because Youtube videos are also not showing up, even though the code is still there.
    Does anyone know of any changes made to Google Pages recently which is preventing these from working???

    On my blog the Odeo is down, but liveleak and youtube still work fine. Not sure but until odeo comes back up I would not worry.
