hello
i have used the resource page example to add a mp3 in my homepage its running fine ,can i auto play the mp3 so that when every my homepage is opened it will automatically play the mp3,i have only a single mp3 in my homepage so there is no problem in auto playing the mp3 i suppose.
i have tried inserting the autoplay code in mp3.ss file under dataobject_manager/code/mp3/
ORIGINAL CODE
<% require javascript(dataobject_manager/code/mp3/audio-player.js) %>

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="$SWFLink" id="audioplayer1" height="24" width="290">
   <param name="movie" value="$SWFLink">
   <param name="FlashVars" value="playerID={$Count}&amp;soundFile={$MP3Link}">
   <param name="quality" value="high">
   <param name="menu" value="false">
   <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
</object>

CHANGED CODE
<% require javascript(dataobject_manager/code/mp3/audio-player.js) %>

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="$SWFLink" id="audioplayer1" height="24" width="290">
   <param name="movie" value="$SWFLink">
   <param name="FlashVars" value="playerID={$Count}&amp;soundFile={$MP3Link}" &amp;autostart="true">
   <param name="quality" value="high">
   <param name="menu" value="false">
   <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
</object>

It appears to me that the plugin doesn't support autoplay, and with good reason. Forcing someone to listen to music on a webpage is one of the most obnoxious choices a developer can make. It's right up there with animated background images.

I don't know the specifics of your project, but if I were visiting your site and all of a sudden an MP3 started playing that I didn't ask for, I'd not only leave the site, I'd be pretty angry, too.

If it's a must-have, then I think you need to look into a different flash audio player. But please, for the love of all that is sane on the Internet, avoid this at all costs.
