Add Music to Your Website
So, you've decided to add music to your website! Good. You've come to the right
place. There are a number of ways to do this which require very little knowledge
of HTML and very few lines of code. Most modern browsers will recognize and play
audio files (.wav, .mp3, .mid, etc.) and supply a simple player with basic controls.
Cincopa allows you to easily add music to your website by simply embedding a dynamic
music player directly into your pages and adding menus, playlists, even album art
(or add your own images). Musicians and music lovers alike can benefit from advances
in audio and internet technologies designed to enrich the web with fast, highly
compressible music downloads and interactive audio players.
