How do you have music play automatically when viewing your site, a page, etc,?

    I would like music to automatically play when my website or a page is opened, rather than having to click on the download: (link)
    Blog url: http://jellybeanscheekymonkey.wordpress.com/

  2. I would very STRONGLY advise against that. It may be the single most annoying thing on the web.

  3. The WordPress player does not provide autoplay music. You can try an alternative player: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/12/05/alternative-audio-players/

    Please note: autoplay is a major irritant for some people (myself included). Many of us will click out never to return again if we experience someone else's musical taste and have not been given an option to listen or not. I never return to such blogs.

  4. Many people listen to online audio while working on their computer - when they visit a site that has auto start audio they have two streams now going - major irritant

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. The site I wanted to have music for was mostly geared towards friends and families. So, I wanted to know if there was an option and, also, an option to turn the music off. But, I think I'll take your advice and stick to just the music that will play in my videos. I definitely will not have any music on autoplay. Much appreciated!

  6. You're welcome and best wishes with your blog. :)
