Hi George,

You can add a media player to your page by using the Widgetbox Gallery:
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!

Your files would need to be already uploaded using the File Manager button at the top of your page
1. In the Widgetbox dialogue box, once you have selected the widget, click on Settings
2. Change the url to something like: http://mysite.synthasite.com/resource...
- where 'mysite' is the name of your published site
- and filename.mp3 is the name of the music file you've uploaded
3. Republish your site for the changes to occur live on your website

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

Hope that helps!

I use the file widget. You just "click and drag" where you want the music file and then select the file from the file manager. When the person clicks on the file, it will open WMP and then just click on File then Save AS. Also can you put your url so I can see what it does?

I opened the first song, and it's not saying Save As. It's saying (for me) Save media As. Try it.

hmmm, open the file. Click on file. Go down till you see save media as. It's right under Add to media library. I just saved the song on my computer. What version of WMP are you using?

I have more or less the same question,
i want my users to download an mp3 file with a click on a download button.
I dont want them to click on the file and then right click and save as.
i see it's possible in other websites.
i'm using dreamweaver cs5.
Hope you all can help me.

Hello,
From your question it looks like you are not using the Yola Sitebuilder and are using dreamweaver, is that the case? If you're using Yola we can try to assist, but if you are using dreamweaver as this is not our environment so we aren't able to provide support.
