How To Add Music or MP3 Songs in Your Blogspot Blog


*UPDATE: Read this post to add a better and more customizable MP3/Music players to your blog : Add MP3 player to your blog

If you want to embed any music file or mp3 in to your website, so that your listeners can enjoy it, then here's a simple way to do it !

First of all you need a DIRECT link of the song/ mp3 file.
So upload it to:
OpenDrive (Recommended), or

Now you will be having a link to your music file like this:
http://www.opendrive.com/files/7285877_812bb/airtel_1.mp3

Now use the code, displayed below:
<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="http://www.google.com/reader/ui/3523697345-audio-player.swf?audioUrl=YOUR_MP3_FILE_ADDRESS" height="27" width="320"></embed>
Replace the text in RED, with the DIRECT LINK of the MP3 file (from your OpenDrive account).
This plays the song like this:

Hi J,
You may use any other player, I think this article will be more helpful to you:

Hi Awax,

There's nothing to go wrong in this...may be the server at odeo was down for a few minutes...anyways I just visited your blog and found a player by imeem, that's looking cool too, so do still want to add this one or are you happy with the imeem player ?

Hi Sai,

Thanks alot for the response, after my earlier post did a bit more searching on the net and found the Imeem player which is alot more easier to use, and can hold a lot more mp3's so will probably stick with that one.
Thanks again

Awax

Ya I have mainly written this article to suggest a player which can be used in special occasions like Xmas, New Year, B'Day etc. where you basically need a single song to play in the blog.

But in case you need to play multiple music files, then of course you can use imeem or any of the players listed in the link in my previous comment (http://news.cnet.com/8301-17939_109-9758036-2.html)

@Guest
There's no need to open a/c in imeem
Simply upoload an mp3 file to hotlinkfiles.com and copy the DIRECT LINK to the mp3.
Then in the code shown above, paste the DIRECT LINK of mp3 and embed the whole code in to your blog. That's it !

I just listned to "Priceless by Melanie Fiona" on your blog, and it was working nicely.
On your homepage, there are too many music players, I will suggest you to either use 1 or show these players only in the post-pages and not in the homepage.

Help please. I am using box.net for my audio uploads. When I embed my code (provided by box.net) into a post, the player is embedded but it does not play. It plays perfect when tested on the box site. Also, since I am a foreign language instructor, I would love a player that I can embed which allows my students to slow down the speed without distortion similar to the Yabla player. Is there such a player available for embed into blog? http://escuchandoconlaprofesora.blogspot.com/

Hello Monica,
Box.net provides links which are not hotlinks/direct links, so you cannot use them here.
Use the signup link to opendrive from the post above, upload your songs there and then use the DIRECT LINKs to the songs in the player.

As mentioned in the post, use DIRECT LINKS (Streaming)
Not these links, the DIRECT LINKS should end with .MP3 etc.

Like this:
