"Music Files"
Posted by John on Aug-07-00 at 09:28 AM (EST)
I'm designing a sheet music store with uStorekeeper. I'd like to provide a link that shoppers can click on to hear a short sound byte (~20 sec) of the music they're thinking of buying. Can you suggest a simple way for me to do this using uStorekeeper? Does my webhost need to provide anything special like audio streaming for me to do this? Do I need to use RealAudio?

Thanks! John

It depends on what format the sound byte will be. If it is something simple like a midi or wave file, I believe you can link directly to the file (perhaps using uStorekeeper's "Large Image or Link" field on the "Add Product" form.... and depending on what plug-in's they have, I think the browser will give them an option to hear the files.

Other tricks might be to link them to a page that automatically starts a MIDI player via the HTML:

EMBED SRC="example.mid" AUTOSTART=TRUE HIDDEN=TRUE MASTERSOUND

(all of which is enclosed by a greater-than sign and a less-than sign --- I just can't show those HTML symbols in this forum)

Midi files would probably be good for your sheet music since they are small files and don't require anything special on your server.
