View Full Version : Promoting music online

Would anyone know how we can upload a song online for visitors to our website to listen and yet not able to download the song?

And in what format can we upload the song, so that the file size would be small and fast enough for a quick play?

I am trying to promote some songs newly launched by a group of friends online. If anyone has done it, pls help.

Currently I have cut the songs into half using an audio editing software, but the size is still too huge (more than 1Mb). And I don't want it to be downloaded by listeners. Eg: like having a little player, where the name of songs would appear. See this site: http://www.corrinnemay.com/safe/flash/index2.htm (http://www.corrinnemay.com/safe/flash/index2.htm)

I finally managed to do what I asked in this thread!!! Searched and surfed the net and finally know the things that I want to do is called "audio streaming"!!!

Just to share with those who may be keen to know how I did it. All softwares used are either Free or Trial version and available online.

1. I used CD to MP3 Ripper software to convert my CD to MP3.

2. Then used WavePad software to do audio editing. As I only wanted to play certain part of the songs, I used this software to trim, fade in at begining of song and fade out at the end. Save the file as MP3 instead of Wave file, which is bigger in size.

3. Then use MP3 Audio Creator software to convert the MP3 to Flash file which can be played online and not been able to be downloaded.

4. Copy the html code from the File where the flash buttons appeared to your webpage. Voila, done!

To see the result, you can go to this (http://www.ukmba.org.my/mp3/i-gemz.html)
