Hi Greg,

You can upload the song you would like to play on your page onto your SynthaSite, by using the File Manager button at the top of your page.

* In the Widgetbox dialogue box, once you have selected the Google Audio widget, click on 'Settings'
* 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 and would like to hear.

* Republish your site for the changes to occur live on the 'net.

Will this work with more then one though? And if it does will the user be able to select the song from a list or something?

Hello Chris

This particular widget will not play more than 1 song. I have given you instructions on how to make playlist on your other thread: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/how...

Yes , search the internet for.
But, here is the warning....!!!

It costs yola much traffic and bandwidth..
Yola do not limit its traffic and bandwidth, yola uses a dedicated server from inetsolutions . Com , and they can offer maximum bandwidth.

But, think a while, if 50 people started to hear your file , it costs your
current bandwidth/ no. Of visitors.

If the amount is smaller than your file's bitrate, anybody can't here the file successfully.

I recommend you to use a 3rd party streaming media host to host the mp3 files and change the url to that.

Also , yola has restricted search engine access to the whole filemanager.That means there are no files will be indexed. So it is wise to follow steps that I wrote.

I'm here for help.
