Edit MPS Profile has a box for music and video. If you get it to work, you'll be the first. Then you can school us! :lol:

ok, this probably should be in a new thread but I just copied and pasted an url from my uploaded wav files into the first line and I think I have music. Doesn't mean everyone would see it/hear it suppose if it's cached. I was trying for Marilyn Monroe but since she wasn't cooperating I have some bagpipe music :~)

An active X box popped up when I tried your profile, but no music.

Us moderators have a 'split-topic' button that we haven't tried. Maybe be a good time to experiment using it.

I see a music box control under under my contact information box. I have to push the play button to hear the music. It doesn't auto load.

From the viewer end, I don't see that music link. Also don't see any auto-load controls in the admin panel. Could be a mod to add to make it do that tho.

Sylvia,

I returned to your profile page and there was the music. I pressed play and the bagpipes played.

I'll work on looking for some tweaks to that, like auto-play. I'm also not sure where you get the music. In myspace, you would get the music from within myspace (other member pages & such).

So stuff to learn yet.

You can find music and upload it, which I did. I'm not sure if will accept anything but wav files though. I also have no idea how you'd upload your own player as it seems to indicate you can do.

Mark/Sylvia:

Could one of you please check my profile to see if my music is available to you?

Thanks...

Yeah, I am not having much luck with it either. First I tried html to a file I have at another server. Then from Sylvia's suggestion I put just the url to the wav file. All I got was a large Quicktime logo. So I used a converter and converted it to mp3. Then I got a small Quicktime logo and and a thing saying I needed a plug-in. This is with Firefox. So I tried the link with MSIE but still got the same error. I was able to hear Sylvia's bagpipes so it is probably something I am doing wrong. No big I guess.

If anyone knows how to get this going, the sound files are

A help page, well, sort of. You can visit the forum over at phpbb.com for help. Specifically for the mps mod, there may be something in this topic: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=377453.

There's also the website of the person who created the mps mod, and that's here: http://mpsmod.com/.
