need music plugin to play throughout site (5 posts)

    I'm looking to play music on my site, but every plugin I know restarts the song on each page. I want the song to keep playing while people browse through the site. Does anybody know of a plugin that will work for what I need?

  2. No you don't need to do this. Please, don't do this, I beg of you. It's the most obnoxious thing in the world, second only to blink tags and pop-under ads. No, wait, it's more obnoxious. Even if you're a musician, you never, ever, want to do this. Let them play the song as an opt-in.

    You would have to use an iframe, and you will piss off people who visit your site.

  3. I'm with Mika on that. There's nothing more annoying. A lot of people listen to their own music when they are at their computer, they might be on their mobile device, or in a shared office or coffee place. They won't like you if your site starts playing music.

    Thanks for the advice, but its not my choice. I made this site for an artist friend and she wants what she wants. If she gets comments later that people don't like the music, that's fine. She can deal with it then, but I am not the one making the decision.

    So any further help you could give me would be great.

    I am not a fan of auto playing music on a site either but...
    Your client is the one paying your bills so here are two possible solutions.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/audiobar/
    Audiobar ads a bar above ore below you site content. It may conflict with your theme but you don't know till you try it.

    or

    If you use Tierra place the player shortcode within the header or footer of the site so that it will continue playing from page to page.
