Hi I'm Noah and I'm going to show you how to build a website with music. If you'd like to add music to your website the most practical way to do it is to add a small streaming player on to your web page. This allows the user to have some control over when the song plays, how the volume is, where to pause it or play it again, things like this so that it is not intrusive into the user's privacy. For example if somebody is watching a website at night and other people in the household are sleeping you wouldn't want the song to start playing very loudly on the speakers without him being able to control that because it might frustrate him and make him leave the website right away. So to add some music to your website simply head over to www.imeem.com or to www.deezer.com. Now on any of these sites simply type in the song that you'd like to have playing on your site and then search for it. Once you find the song that you want simply press the little play button and then you'll see here that under the little player where it is playing the song there is something called embeddable player. Now if you simply copy this little piece of code this can be done simply by clicking on it once and either pressing control c or pressing the copy button then you can paste it into the website that you are building at the moment at the spot where you want it so simply go back to your html editor, paste it into the code and then when you want your website you will have this little deezer player playing your song. This is also practical because it gives viewers the options of pausing it, playing it again, repeating it, all kinds of neat things. Exactly the same thing on imeem, simply type in the song that you are searching for, click search, wait for the list to load, and then select the song you want from the list. Now once the player loads, same thing, simply find the little embed code, copy it by clicking on it and pressing control c on your keyboard and then paste it in to the html code you are working on. The next thing you know it will be right there on your website. As a side note this also works on myspace for example where you can simply paste in the code to put the song on your profile.
