Hi luissum,

If you're going to be uploading music to your site you're generally going to have to use a widget/player, people won't be able to download the music but you won't be able to display them in a single playlist. You would have to have a player for each song.

The only other thing I can think of is creating your own playlist at

To add the playlist you have created, follow these steps:

1. Login on and click on 'post my playlist' at the top of the page.
2. Click on the last option 'get the playlist code for any website'.
3. Choose the playlist you would like to use.
4. Customize the settings for your playlist.
5. Click on 'get code'.
6. Copy the code provided.
7. Go back to your Yola, and drag-and-drop an HTML Widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
8. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste).
9. When you are done, click "OK" and you will see the playlist displayed on your page.

Please let me know if any of this helps! Or if we an try assist further.

Hi again,

I just realized you might have been referring to internet browsing software and not people visiting the site.

If by "without letting web-browsers to download them?" you were referring to the time it takes for browsers to buffer and stream the audio, there's not much we can do about it. Each visitor will have a different experience based on the type of internet connection that they have.
