I just did this not too long ago.Unzip the files. Upload the following files to a new folder in your site (just to make it easier):playlist.xmlconfig.xmlmp3player.htmlmp3player.swfufo.jsEdit the playlist.xml, here you can add songs just edit the code:

<track>   <annotation>Your Song Title</annotation>   <location>your_music_file.mp3</location>   <info>http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?item=Flash_MP3_Player</info>    <image>mp3/cover.jpg</image></track>

<annotation> is where your song title goes.<location> is the URL or web address of your music file<info> is the information of your song, this makes a link in the player. You place your URL here, this is optional, it's not required for the player to work.<image> is the album cover of the song, you have to link it of course, this is also optional. You can copy, paste, and edit that for however many songs you want. Just be sure to also copy the <track> </track> code also for every new song you add.Here's one I did: http://oneuse.awardspace.com/flash_player/2_3_1/

http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?item=Flash_MP3_PlayerGet the config.xml file from the same link if you don't already have it. If you can't play the files that are hot-linked perhaps you should make sure that those files aren't hot-linked protected. Those music files are .mp3 files correct? Yes, you do need to upload the mp3player.swf file.

No you really don't. All you need are those files I mentioned above, all the rest of the things you don't need for the player. However if you want to that's fine, it's not going to hurt it.

its all gud i did what you sadi and it works fine, the hotlinking works 2, so thnks bud, great help :) but i got 1 quck last question, im wanting the music player in the dead centre of the page, how would i do this, i see in the mp3player.html it has style="margin:50px;" but that sorta centres it but not towards the top of the page, how do i lower it? would i use <br> or something else, cheers againalso the <image>lookatmypic.jpg</image> doesnt support .gif does it? itll show but the pics wont move, shame really, an animated speaker would look quite good in there lol

You can make a <div style="text-align:center; margin-top:60px;"></div> container for your flash to make it center, and lower it a little on your page. Just be sure to take that margin:50px; off of the body tag, or else you'll have some serious margin issues. As far as the .gif images go, I don't know about that. I guess just try it out.

It's quite OK, I don't mind helping.Be sure that your playlist.xml file looks something like mine: http://oneuse.awardspace.com/flash_player/2_3_1/playlist.xmlYou might want to view the source for a better view of that. Just compare it, and make any changes necessary to your file. Just be sure not to hot-link my music! I will know if someone does.

lol. Apparently I'm using an outdated player. Which explains why you can't find the config.xml page. :) My bad.

That's probably because on your file you don't have the ending </location> on:<location>http://dc19.4shared.com/download/4312623/61e8c72b/04_dj_fitzy_vs_rossy_b__m_jay_-_on__on.mp3 Try adding that to the end of that file name, and try it again.
