Next, Create a play button for each song. You will also need to create one stop button that you can place anywhere.

In the play song button you will need to put the following actionscript in the button. This is the code for song1:

on (release) {
    unloadMovieNum(66);
    loadMovieNum("http://www.yoursite.com/swf/song1.swf", 66);
}

As you see the level is at (66). This can be set to any number of your choice, but all of the same buttons either playing a song or stopping a song must be on the same level. That is done so it knows to stop and play a song correctly. The unloadMovieNum(66) code is in there so it will stop any song that is currently playing.

So continue to copy and paste the above code for each song until you are done.

For song 2 the code would be:

on (release) {
    unloadMovieNum(66);
    loadMovieNum("http://www.yoursite.com/swf/song2.swf", 66);
}

2. The stop button: You will need to enter the following actionscript if you want to stop a song.

on (release) {
    unloadMovieNum(66);
}

The individual .swf files.

This is the long part. You will need to open a new flash file. Import the song that you want to stream.

You will need two layers, actions & sound. Add your song to the bottom layer and insert frames until the song is finished. For song 1, insert the following code in the action layer on the last frame.

on (release) {
    unloadMovieNum(66);
    loadMovieNum("http://www.yoursite.com/swf/song2.swf", 66);
}

With this code, song 2 will automatically play next.

Finally Publish your swf. Make sure to set your streaming audio setting at 128kpbs under publish settings.

Repeat the previous steps above for song2 except change the actionscript code in the last frame to:

on (release) {
    unloadMovieNum(66);
    loadMovieNum("http://www.yoursite.com/swf/song3.swf", 66);
}

That is done so song3 will play next. Continue to do this for all of your songs until you get to the last one. You can either stop it all together of have it start back over at song1. It will take some time getting this done if you want to use a lot of songs.

With enough patience and know how you can have your own audio jukebox on your site. Any questions or comments you can email me at: sstrayer@yahoo.com

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
