yes,is it possible that u can upload it to your site using ur "File Manager", but it will not play when someone visit your site, you upload the file on your site so it means if they want to play it they need to download it.

Using widget its possible, just try to check your "Widgetbox Gallerie" and search for "mp3 players" available and try if they can play ur mp3 files.

Update me if u cant find so that i will try to find u one.

Hi Daron,

You can add music by using the Widgetbox Gallery widget:
1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, click on the Audio category or search for music.
3. Choose the player that you would like to use on your site.
4. Edit your settings to customise your widget (see those steps below).
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

You can also add music by using Widgetbox or Google Gadgets widgets:
1. Click on the "Widgets" folder on the far right of your screen.
2. Drag and drop a Widgetbox widget onto your page (Google Gadgets also has players).
3. Click on the link in the dialogue box that will take you to Widgetbox.
4. Browse for a player. Here is a direct link to one where the plays when your site opens: myplayer
5. Customize your widget (the site will take you through the steps depending on the player you select, see those steps below).
6. Copy the HTML code provided.
7. Paste the code into the dialogue box in SynthaSite and click "OK".

To play a song that you've uploaded to your site using one of the above widgets edit the settings so that the URL looks like: http://mysite.synthasite. com/resources/ song.mp3 (ignore the spaces, this is added so that the whole URL will show)

* Where 'mysite' is the name of your published site
* song.mp3 is the name of the music file you've uploaded and would like to hear
* Remember to include any folder names in the file path if your file is stored in a folder in the File Manager. For example, if you have Music folder: "resources/Music/song.mp3"

Republish your site for the changes to occur live on the internet.

Please ensure that you own the copyright to the music you will be playing.

Hope that helps!
