Hope someone can help me. I see some posts with music files attached (music plays when the post opens up). I'm wondering how this is done.

Thanks! :)

Hi Kevin,

I use the following code:

&ltbgsound src="http://urladdress" loop="1">

I think .wav files are the best ones to use. Sometimes you have to experiment to make sure it works.

Just note that these cannot be put into signatures, just posts.

Real funny Mary Jo! Tell Kevin you have the solution and then hide the code!! ;) ;)

Just in case she doesn't check back to this thread again tonight, here is the code she was showing you.

<bgsound src="http://urladdress" loop="1">

Hope that helps.

I see that "someone" went back up to MaryJo's reply and fixed it without leaving any tracks!! Now people are going to wonder what the whole thread is about. Sneaky!!

JC, you trying to make me look bad??? ;)

Everyone is going to wonder what my problem is. "There is the code right there in MaryJo's reply. What is this BobBrazeal character talking about?"

I think I'll PM Kevin and see if I can get a signed and notarized statement that it wasn't there last night!!! :) :) He may be my only witness. Or have you gotten to him, too???? :p :p :p

I have NEVER seen any post nor title edited to make someone look silly.

Why would someone do that? (http://www.disboards.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=44006)

Bob, as moderators here on the Tech Board, we are only supposed to use our "powers" for the good of our fellow DIS'ers. ;) :rolleyes: ;)

It seems you were a victim of the dreaded "sneaky edit feature". The "problem has been fixed, you now appear to be a sane individual, and your post makes sense once again! :D (At least it does for the next few minutes)

ROTFLOL!!!! :) :p :) :p :) :p

Thanks for the laughs everyone. I've got people looking in on me wondering what is going on.

I think this is why I hang around the Tech board so much. Everyone here has such a great sense of humor. Thank you, all!! I haven't laughed like this for a while. This one just really struck me funny.

What are you talking about Bob. If I remember correctly, MJ was kind enough to provide that code right away! ;)

Chris C
06-27-2001, 01:32 PM
Not that I can hear them anyway....

Netscape users can't hear with the "bgsound=".

The following is the code I use for for "cross browser compatibility":

&LTEMBED SRC="http://webaddress" HEIGHT=0 WIDTH=0 LOOP="true" BGCOLOR="#000000">&LT/EMBED>

(Poor Bob! I tried pal... but you're on your own now! LOL)

You scared me Chris. I was wondering if you got the embed sound (applause) in another thread.
After I did it, I sat here thinking "What if Chris doesn't have a sound card? Probably thinks I'm an idiot with the none response I posted"

cotye/Kevin,
I really hope you do not have email notification turned on for this thread. If so, you must be pretty :mad:

JC, I think that is one of those low budget Sci Fi shows that comes on the BBC between 1 AM and 2 AM.

Kevin, I just want you to remember who helped you with that incredible animated gif in your signature! (just a little hint - the initials are BobBrazeal)

What signature? I don't see my signature above. Oh. You're talking to the OTHER Kevin. (I think)

And if the initials are BobBrazeal, I would hate to see the size of the word(s) that it spells out.
:earseek:

Hey Kevin,
Here's one more email for ya! :)

cotye
06-27-2001, 01:45 PM
LOL Bob!! Oh yea... Don't know how I almost forgot that you did my animated sig!! Oh forgiveness. ;) :p

If she did, we would have to remind her that this is a "Family Discussion Board".

I like to use the HIDDEN=TRUE so the player does not come up. It takes some by surprise.

Edit:
Here's another email Kevin

I had used "HEIGHT=0 WIDTH=0" to control the size of the "play indicator". I wasn't even aware that you could use the "hidden" to take care of that!

I guess you learn something new everyday here on the Tech Board! Clipart... sound... who your friends are... ;)

<font color=navy>Since I don't have a sound card here at my high-tech work computer :rolleyes: , I'm going to have to read this at home where I can truly "appreciate" this thread.

So, BT, you've now seen the high level of professionalism and hard work required here on the the Tech Support board.

Mary Jo, if you've gotten home, you probably now realize that after ALL this, there aren't even any sound files in this thread.

Mary Jo
06-27-2001, 11:17 PM
<font color=navy>Sheesh - you mean after all that, there's not even any sound??? :rolleyes:
