We began by creating a YouTube channel for our site. Then, we uploaded the mp3 file to Microsoft's Windows Movie Maker program. Next, we uploaded the Movie Maker file to YouTube. Finally, we created the link to the YouTube file on our Audio/Video Memories page. For some examples of how this looks, visit our Audio/Video Memories page:

Here are four additional direct methods to play MP3 files.

1. CC's player - see Playlist Generator (Flash, so that does not work for all devices).

2. Directly link to the MP3 once you upload the file - opens a new page and automatically plays. Works, but messy in that it moves to a new page. Next is better. This is the code for this <~a href="YourFileLINK.mp3">Song 1<~/a> (remove the ~, did that just for this comment so it won't play)

3. Easiest works for all current browsers and is a tad easier/faster to play just a single song. You can do this multiple times on the same page. See code below.

4. Most flexible if you have multiple songs, but more reading - Use JVideoPlayer LINK here This can also work for Scott's YouTube links Wink Keeps everything on the same page focus.

For option 3 - Insert this code using the editor SOURCE mode (click upper left editor icon). Replace the sample mp3 with the CC mp3 link. Store the MP3 in your file vault (use Editor Link icon to upload). You can make a folder called MP3 if you anticipate getting more.
