- Adding sounds
Background music, played while the user is viewing your site can be extremely effective and adds to the "multi-media" experience.
Very simply achieved, it involves adding a few parameters to the <embed> tag: hidden tells the browser not to display any controls; autostart tells it to start playback automatically on page load and loop tells it to play the audio continuously.
There are around ten file formats for audio, some of which such as .au, .aif and .wav have all rather been left behind in terms of compression, file size and quality. At the time of writing, we would recommend the .mp3 format.
The best way of getting a sound file into your web structure is simply to drag and drop it into the root folder of your site. The next step is to embed the sound file into the web page you require sound for. The easiest method is via the Property Inspector.
Position the cursor near the top of the web page and go to Insert...Media...Plugin.
