With advent of mp3 (music compression) files, it is now much more practical to put full examples of music on the web. After capturing or creating files in the wave or aiff formats, these music files can be converted to mp3 to be played on the WWW or to be put onto CDs for CD Players that will handle the mp3 format, or special mp3 players such as iPod.
The examples on this page represent three different contexts
for putting music on the web. When this page is first loaded, you hear a musical
example that plays when the page is launched. The html code for this is:
[embed src = "audio/beethoven.mp3" Controller = false height = 0 width = 0 autostart = true repeat = false]
The first Mozart link is a text link that works as an "href"
link in which the html command "anchors" the text:
[a href = "audio/mozart.mp3"> Mozart: Symphony No. 1 in E-Flat Major, 1st Movement </a>
The other examples are a variation of the embed command which
establishes a controller and the dimensions for the controller as well as
other conditions for performance (notice that Four Sections is looped):
[embed src = "audio/mozart.mp3" Controller = true height = 30 width = 400 autostart = false repeat = false]
When the embed command is used, the files are down loaded as the page is launched. Thus it could take longer for computers with slow modem connections. The link approach allows you to list many titles without having them download. Each example is downloaded only when it is clicked on.
