How To Add Background Music To Your Website

Add our high quality background music to your website easily and quickly.

>>UPDATE: February 16, 2012 – Given that many users are now on iPhones and iPads, HTML5 is a new option.  See below.

For beginning web designers, it’s often difficult to figure out how to add background music to a website.  The way to do it is to use a music player created in Adobe Flash.  The player can be something you create yourself or you can find one already made for you, many of them free.

There are so many free flash music players available these days that will allow you to quickly and easily put music and audio on your site.

Here’s a quick list of recommended FREE flash music players with links to how to use them/install them on your website.

1) HTML5 Audio tag – NEW – Any modern web browser that uses a technology set called Webkit should be able to use this (Safari, Chrome).  Here’s a quick and easy tutorial on how to add audio and music to your website without having any use of the Flash plug-in.  It’s all built into the browser.

2) 1 Pixel Out – For those of you running a WordPress site, this is hands down the easiest to install and use.  And pretty elegant looking with the ability to choose color options now.

3) JW FLV Player – This player actually does video as well.  Named after the coder Jeroen “JW” Wijering – it’s fully skinnable/customizable.  We’re now using the JW player throughout our site.  Here’s an example:

Pomegranates

4) WinAmp – This one’s been around since the early days of the web.  Lots of options.

There are so many more options out there, and we may release our own player soon just to give you another choice.

If you also know how to use Adobe’s Flash, you can just add a bit of code on the first frame of your Flash movie that will load your music for you.  Check out this free actionscript for background music.

Now that you know how to get the music to live on your site, it’s time for you to choose the great track – legally.

High Quality – Hand-picked Music

There are so many sites offering background music for websites these days with no controls for quality.  But if you’re looking to project a quality brand image, the last thing you want to do is put some cheesy music behind your website or flash intro.  We don’t believe in adding any old track to our library.  We handpick every single track.  We write a descriptive, provocative track description so you have a better idea of what the music is and even what it sounds like.  And we love our music, and hope you will too.

Here’s some other reasons why you should consider adding our background music to your website.

  • You can captivate, dazzle and keep your customers longer with our excellent selection of  quality cinematic background music for websites.
  • Win awards.  If you’re the designer, you’re client will love you and think you a genius.   Did we mention, win awards?
  • Sell more.  Most websites featuring music are for a high end product which needs a high-end image.
