How can I get code generated from this music generator to work in a HTML widget? I tried to copy/paste into a HTML widget but nothing shows up when I preview the page.

Let me give it a try, Randy.
Give me the URL of the music file...

Actually I am trying it with a music file as well as an xspf file. Is there a quick way I can find the code I need to use to paste a URL correctly into this message? I keep forgetting what it is.

I think I found it:

Here is a link to an actual MP3 file that I am also trying with the Music generator.

I have no experience with xspf files so this is a bit out of my league.
I did a quick search here on GS and there seems to be quite a few threads where other users have tried this....Have you had a look at these?

Hi Randy - did you manage to get some help on this by reading the other threads or do you still need our help?

I still need help because I assumed that all you do is copy/paste the code into a HTML widget and it should work. I must be missing something.

Randy i try'd a while back and it did'nt always work depending on browser set up.

When adding music to your site - it has to be an option i.e. dont play it from the page load.

This is the best site i have found for making cool little music players, http://muzicons.com/ - not perfect for playlist set ups but nice looking little players.

Whatever you use when applying it always make sure the file is available from its URL.

Thanks Kershnee!! My problem is that if I went with a playlist type player, it would have to work on an iPhone because iPhone's can't view Flash, a Flash music player would not work. It would have to be a non-flash solution that would work on iPhones as well. Thanks again!! Looking forward to what you come up with.
