Posts: 9
Getting Started!

    I created my Website and was looking forward to putting some BA music on it. Well....It wont turn on. I put my mouse over 'Loop' and saw it caused mute of music. I realized that I had created a guild before on this same account and put Loop on. But now I didnt and it wont play. Please help. I would hate to see my Site without some music

Is the site you are having trouble with?  What/where/page is your music on?  I could not see to find it.

Not sure if this will help or not but this link is to the sound FAQ (with a video!)

Oh I just realized that its actually deleting it. I copy and paste the link in and save page properties and one I go back on it its not on there. so like I would put on there and then save....I refresh my Home page to see if it worked...It didnt...So I went back to the Control Panel...Refreshed it...And the link was deleted out of the box.

The link you are using is to a youtube page, the background sound link is intended for links to a music file, like this:

If you want to add a youtube video as background music, then you can:
  1. Grab the embed code.
  2. Zero out the height and width (in red below).
  3. Add "&autoplay=1" to the URL to make the music autoplay (in green)
  4. Add "&loop=1" to the URL to make the music loop forever (in blue)... or use "&loop=3" to make it loop 3x.
    <object width="0" height="0"><param name="movie" value=";hl=en_US&autoplay=1&loop=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src=";hl=en_US&autoplay=1&loop=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="0" height="0"></embed></object>
  5. Once you have the code ready, paste it into a Free Form Text/HTML widget on the page you want the music.... the only condition is the widget cannot be hidden or the music won't play.
