Add an MP3 Player to Your Website

As of July 1, 2013 Yahoo Player has been discontinued.
The following code no longer functions.


One easy way to add music to a website is with the Yahoo! Webplayer. It will make any audio (or video) link automatically play on page. Click the example below to see it in action!

Example:

Listen to Big Band Music

How to add it to a webpage


1. Upload Your MP3

If you don't know how to upload a file click here.

2. Copy this code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://webplayer.yahooapis.com/player.js"></script>

3. Paste the code into the Head Code of your webpage
Click File >Page Options. Scroll down and paste in the box labeled Head Code.

4. Link to an audio file
Simply make a link to your music file. This is done the same way as linking to a webpage. The script will automatically make it play on the page, when a user clicks on the link.


Advanced Options

If you need to use advanced options (such as autoplay or playlists) please consult the Documentation on the Webplayer site.
