Hi Everyone,

Could anyone recommend me a play button for the mp3 files I have in this page?

As you can see, there are many players and it takes quite a while for all of them to load. I was looking for a faster alternative.

By the way, why does it take so long? Is it because it loads each mp3 file when loading the page or is the player itself that takes too long if I place too many (regardless of the mp3 size that loads)?

I'm looking for a player that could be placed many time in the same page without taking too long to load.

The load time probably is not related to your player but rather to the files download. mp3 are reasonably large and so when you have many downloading at the one time this may cause a slowdown.

I think that the only way of overcoming this noticeably is related to the speed of the viewers connection

You should use a third party - soundcloud.com would be a good option. They have an embeddable player and allow a download option with each track. This should also increase load time as your using their servers.

Hello Connr,
Would you mean "decrease the load time" rather than "increase" ?

Great suggestion on outside resources.
