    Trouble embedding Windows Media Player in MySpace blog posts

    Hey,

    For a few weeks now I haven't been able to embed songs on my MySpace blog. I was able to do it before, but now the code gets deleted each time I try to embed.

    If anyone can shed some light on the subject, it would be much appreciated. If you need more information, just ask.

    Here are the codes I've tried:

    Code:
    <embed src="mysongurl" width="300" height="100" type="audio/mpeg mpga mp2 mp3" autostart="false" loop="false">
    Code:
    <EMBED SRC="mysong" AUTOSTART="true" LOOP="false" HIDDEN="false" Width="145" Height="30">
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <title>Kristina's Music</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    text-align:center;
    }
    </style>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function PlayIt(what){
    player.document.getElementById('music').innerHTML='<object width="300" height="100" '
          +'classid="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6" '
          +'codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701" '
          +'standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject">'
          +'<param name="url" value="'+what+'">'
          +'<param name="uiMode" value="full">'
          +'<param name="autoStart" value="true">'
          +'<param name="loop" value="true">'
          +'<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" '
          +'pluginspage="http://microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/en/download/" '
          +'showcontrols="true" uimode="full" width="300" height="45" '
          +'src="'+what+'" autostart="true" loop="true">'
    +'</object>';
    }
    </script>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    <select name="player" onchange="PlayIt(this.value)">
    <option value="none">::Choose Song::</option>
    <option value="mysong url ">My song Title</option>
    </select><br>
    <div id="music">
    <object width="300" height="100" 
          classid="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6" 
          codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701"
          standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject">
          <param name="url" value="">
          <param name="uiMode" value="full">
          <param name="autoStart" value="true">
          <param name="loop" value="true">
          <embed type="application/x-mplayer2" 
          pluginspage="http://microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/en/download/" 
          showcontrols="true" uimode="full" width="300" height="45"

    You can't use javascript on myspace. You can't use the object tag either. Try this
    Code:
    <embed type="application/x-mplayer2" 
          pluginspage="http://microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/en/download/" 
          showcontrols="true" uimode="full" width="300" height="45" 
          src="mysongurl" autostart="1" playcount="9999">

    Okay, I will try that. But, how does that explain the other two codes I tried? I didn't think that this:
    Code:
    <EMBED SRC="mysong" AUTOSTART="true" LOOP="false" HIDDEN="false" Width="145" Height="30">
    was JavaScript.

    Thanks.

    I think the player has to be visible. I don't do myspace very much. Just live with the fact that they don't allow certain things.

    MySpace does not like the EMBED tag. You'll have to do it with OBJECT tags only.
