Hi there, this option is already there for "auto play" to start when your page is opened. I use it on my site....when you use the widget for MP3 and upload etc etc, click on the "properties" tab (next to the widget tab) and you will see the option for auto play ON or OFF, then hit "apply"

It is a fantastic feature.

Hi Saml

We are happy to hear that you like the mp3 widget.

There is an autoplay option in the mp3 widget.
If you would like the music to play automatically, you can do it manually, by following these steps:

1. Click on the MP3 player you have added to your site.
2. Go to the "Properties" tab in the Sidebar.
3. Under "Auto Play" - select "ON" in the drop-down menu.
4. Click the "Apply" button at the bottom.
5. Save and update your site.

The reason that we deter users from adding the autoplay option is that, in our experience, music that plays automatically is one of the quickest ways to get people to leave your site.

Because people use the internet and their computers in different ways, it is not always a good experience when you visit a site and music starts to play. Your site visitors may need it to be quiet because they are browsing the internet in an office, computer lab, library etc, or because it clashes with their own music that they are playing on their computer.

I hope this helps you.

Some good points Nazlie about the auto play, but on the flip side of the coin.....I guess depending what kind of theme your site is, whether having the auto play or even music for that matter suits....For me, I "kinda" liked what I had done on my site before discovering the new MP3 widget, now I "looooooooove" my opening home page with the MP3 auto start music :) it simply just goes together.

Yes I have pondered about if people were using a computer in a library blah blah, wondered if somehow I could set the volumne on the thing before I stuck it on my site BUT, I can't and so be it, the auto play will suit some sites and not others, that final decision is up to the webmaster I guess....once your regular visitors realise that upon entering they will be greeted with 'sound' then they'll be fully prepared....

I'm still loving the MP3 widget and very often go and just 'preview' my home page cos I'm so pleased by it :)
