Use Google To Embed MP3 Files On Your Blog

If you are running a Music blog or having lots of podcasts, then this tip will be useful for you. You can use Google Audio Player for embedding MP3 files on your website or blog. You can practically embed this anywhere, though sometimes IE won’t be comfortable with this unfortunately. This player has volume controls and surprisingly, no Google branding. People hardly guess that it is powered by Google.

Embedding MP3 Files Using Google

This is the code you should be using,

<embed type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” src=”http://www.google.com/reader/ui/3523697345-audio-player.swf” quality=”best” flashvars=”audioUrl=MP3link” width=”500″ height=”27″></embed>

In the above code, instead of ‘MP3link’ use the Audio file URL. You can change the width as you like, but keeping the height as ’27’ is recommended. You can the demo player below.

This is perhaps one of the easiest ways for adding audio files on websites.

  1. Pingback: ScribeFire Test: Getting most out of what you have at Google « Waiting for paint to dry … yep even on wordpress.com
  2. If you are a wordpress user, there are various plugins giving more control over the appearance of control panel of audio player, other you can use audio src html tag. But this is good too.
