    xspf player

    Hello there,


    I've just made at site for my production company. Here's the link


    I'm trying to use this mp3 player to play the tracks that we write.

    It works fine on macs running firefox and safari but I can't for the life of me get it to work on a PC running AOL or Internet Explorer... (not tried firefox..might be an idea).

    It basically doesn't seem to be able to load the playlist on the PC and shows the default title on the player.

    I noticed a similar question asked here down the page a bit.. but it didn't help.

    I don't understand why the player is showing the default text... surely if I have set the player to autoload the playlist... it should be trying to load the playlist even if it is unsuccesful.


    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks lots.

    IE uses the object tag, other browsers use the embed tag. Change this
    Code:
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0"
    width="375" height="14" align="center" >
            <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/>
            <param name="movie" value="xspf_player_slim.swf"/>
    
            <param name="quality" value="high"/>
            <param name="bgcolor" value="#E6E6E6"/>
        <embed src="http://www.manikemusic.com/xspf_player_slim.swf?playlist_url=http://www.manikemusic.com/playlist.xspf&autoplay=true"
        quality="high" bgcolor="#E6E6E6" name="xspf_player_slim" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"
        type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
        pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
        align="center" height="14" width="375"> </embed>
    </object>
    to this
    Code:
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0"
    width="375" height="14" align="center" >
            <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/>
            <param name="movie" value="xspf_player_slim.swf?playlist_url=http://www.manikemusic.com/playlist.xspf&autoplay=true"/>
    
            <param name="quality" value="high"/>
            <param name="bgcolor" value="#E6E6E6"/>
        <embed src="http://www.manikemusic.com/xspf_player_slim.swf?playlist_url=http://www.manikemusic.com/playlist.xspf&autoplay=true"

        pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
        align="center" height="14" width="375"> </embed>
    </object>
    Really though you should be using something like http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/ as it stands you need "Click to Activate" in IE.

    Just ask if you need clarification, but it doesn't require you to program anything. Just copy and paste the code. It tries to make it somewhat possible to understand.

    I finally got around to trying this. I'm sure there's something basic I'm not doing right. Below is what I've generated using the code from your link. I'd appreciate your help.

    You need to change the location of the flash file in two places in the code above. I'll let you figure that out.

    I've finally had time to get back to this.

    Um, I hate to say it, but i'm baffled. i'm looking for the spots you're referencing and i just don't know. (when I edit my website i'm like a blind man in a dark basement searching for a black cat that doesn't exist.)

    I'm not even sure what you mean by "the flash file." by that you mean the xspf player?

    how about a hint?

    --dd

    thanks for your patience.

    As I said two places
    Code:
    <object id="xspf_player" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="400" height="170">
    
    <param name="movie" value="http://daredukes.com/xspf_player.swf?playlist_url=http://daredukes.com/xspf_player/ptoa_playlist.xspf" />
    <!--[if !IE]>-->
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://daredukes.com/xspf_player.swf?playlist_url=http://daredukes.com/xspf_player/ptoa_playlist.xspf" width="400" height="170">
