How to insert a sound on the website

To insert a sound on the website, it is necessary to have an idea of the HTML programming language (HyperText Markup Language). Some webmasters want the visitor, having visited the website, to hear a pleasant background music or the calming noise of a surf. In it there is nothing bad. However it is necessary to know that there is also copyright which cannot be violated.

1. One of the easiest ways to upload a sound in the MP3 format to the site is to create a new HTML page. Only keep in mind that not all browsers can correctly react. For example, in Internet Explorer this method approaches, for some other browsers it is necessary to use the Flash-player.

2. Between tags insert the following code: <bgsound src= "" file"" balance= "" number"" loop= "" number"" volume= "" number"">. Now with it it is necessary to carry out several simple manipulations. For this purpose you should know interpretation of components of this code.

If you put in a line of balance= "" 0"", then the balance of volume in both columns will be identical. Positive numbers increase volume in the right column, and negative — respectively in left.

5. The loop value shows how many times will be played the musical file. Value of loop= "" 0"" once plays the file,-1 plays back music until the current web page is open. Any whole positive number the set number of times will force your browser to play the selected sound file.
